PSKFEST experiences

Russell Chandler <rhchan@...>
 

I would be interested in learning more about your PSK31 setups.
The best I could do was 48 contacts, no exotic callsigns.

Was I operating in some type of void here in Southeastern Virginia....???

Costas (and others) -

ZD8JA ZD8 IOTA AF-003 QSL: ???
ZD8JA is 070's own Jeremy Allen (note the initials in the callsign),
N1ZZZ/4. I'm sure he will QSL all contacts once he gets home from
his overseas trip.

Address is on QRZ.com.

P.S. Yippee, I worked him too!


After the fest

AA8QQJMauch@...
 

Hi All,
Had a really great time on this PSK contest, but that's nothing new.
Made 80 or 81 QSO's with 38 mults, QRP on 80 thru 10. I deleted a possible
QSO with CT4MS, so if you could check your log Leonel and let me know if I'm
in there I would appreciate it.

Used GenLog for the first time. Learned to use it on the fly. All in all, a
very nice logging program. Nice enough that I'm giving up on my logger. No
sense reinventing the wheel. So if you see a note on the PODXS 070 page
saying to wait for my logger, ignore it, that's old history. I'll give my
input to Dave and let him use any of my ideas for the good of all.

I wonder how many have worked more than 100 QSO's. Seems AOL is having
internal problems displaying some pages. Keeps saying "Server Busy" so
don't be surprised if you get such a message when you goto the results page.

73 for now, see you all going over my waterfall.

   Yeah, you're going to get that in any contest you work Costas. There was even a guy here calling "CQ DX" on 20m yesterday, so what the heck was he thinking?? Anyways, chock it all up to the contesting experience hi! 73 de Jay N3DQU

Erika,
Yeah he showed up right on top of me on the freq I'd been running QRP fer a
while. I heard and tried calling both of you, and neither heard me. Oh
well, that's the price we pay for running QRP.

PSKFEST experiences

Costas Krallis SV1XV <sv1xv@...>
 

Well, I managed 110 QSOs with 47 multipliers (15 US states,
1 VE province, 31 DXCC including W&VE). Worked all bands
from 3.5 - 28. Very few europeans showed up on 7035, while
I worked 3 north americans on 7070. Less productive periods
were: 00:00 - 01:00, 02:30-04:00 and 21:45-23:59.

Interesting participants (from my "point of view"):

HF0POL VP8 IOTA AN-010 QSL: SQ5TA
FK8BG FK IOTA OC-032 QSL: ???? (*)
EM1KCC CE9 IOTA AN-006 QSL: UT7UA
ZD8JA ZD8 IOTA AF-003 QSL: ???
WA4MIT AL
KC0IFL MO

Unfortunately VQ9NL in Diego Garcia who was active
in PSK31, did not participate.

Worst problem: Stations replying to a CQ CONTEST call and,
when passed the contest exchange, returning their "my name is..."
tape and then, if asked for the contest exchange, replying
"sorry - no contest".

See you again next year!

(*) Not contest participant but replied to CQ-contest
and passed RST+Country info

Lenny, seems you had a DL2AYL-filter for 20 meters.. called you  - no chance.
Jay, for 10 meters you'll have to go up earlier.

We also had EM1KCC from CE9/IOTA AN-006 and ZD8JA in
the PSKFEST. Did you notice any other exotic callsigns?
Also, VQ9NL was active in PSK-31 (I had a QSO which I
did not enter in the Contest Logs) but he did not take
part in the Contest.

BTW I have faced two problems:

1. too many replies to CQ CONTEST by non participant, who
must be then guided how to give the proper contest exchange

2. Lots of non-standard exchanges: Russia as either RA
and RU. Italy as "I", "ITA" and "Italy", Greece
as "Greece" and "SV", Asiatic Russia as "AR" and "RU9" etc.
In my logs I intend to replace non-standard prefixe exchanges
with the ones specified in the DXCC booklet.

Hi Erika,
Tnx for the 10mtr contact in the PSKFEST. 20mtrs was real crowded. I thought I took that filter off..hihi. Hope you did well in the contest.

Here's an idea...

Charlie Trice <k8ij@...>
 

Say here's an idea...
 
I feel RST in a contest is a waste of bits.  Most everyone sends 599 each QSO.
 
We're a friendly bunch - why not use our names in the 070 club contests?
 
Vy 73,

Have fun!

No, uh - let's be FESTive?
 
Have fun and I hope to see you all.

Hey Lenny,

If you're looking for Hawaii, 2 or 3 KH's hang out on 10 meters pretty
regularly. Evillo, KH6DRT is on nearly every day.
Good luck in the contest.

Hello All,
Is everyone getting ready?. Took the day off (Friday), but spent half
of it in the stores with the XYL. The things guys have to do just to
get into a contest...hihi. Bands don't look so hot on the East Coast.
Now, if only Hawaii would show up on 20mtrs....hmmmm. That would make
my day. See you all later...I hope..
