John, KC3FL, 070 #2566

Congrats on a fabulous first upload of 3,231 QSOs. You leaped right over the LONP 100 and grabbed the LONP 200 level as LONP #423.

And grabbing those 26 other awards is phenomenal. To complete your 366 Award, you just need those 5 dates in September/October and of course, the next Leap Day!

Re: Today on 20m

Someone should have known better than to have DXpedition on that frequency or near it.  I took advantage of that to call CQ in various digi modes.  I was as legal as they were !

It actually was FT8 in DXpedition (or fix and hound) mode  from 1A0C (Malta) - they are using 14.071 as their FT8 frequency: http://www.1a0c.com/band-plans/

Wow,  got home and found 20m filthy with what appeared to be FT-8 signals on 14070.  Did someone forget to tell those guys that’s a PSK frequency ???

 

Well,  did work Matthew in GA, but thunderclouds were moving in and skies got really dark. Shut down the rig.

 

On another front, I approved a bunch of endorsements for KC3FL & W9SMR.  Way to go guys  !!!!

Your spread sheet has me operating the Pontoon Portable.  Although I truly wish that was to be, I'm stuck in Florida (in the A/C).  I think you meant to add Stan W9SMR as the other Pontoon Portable.  And I believe he will be using the call sign W9SMR/9.

Current APE Schedule

W7RIV
 

I created a spreadsheet to help keep track of all the APE madness. This information will get posted on the website, but I'm using this as a tool to keep track of information. I figured you might as well have it as well. Feel free to add your own APE, or update your plans.


Thanks,

40M FIRECRACKER SPRINT - RESULTS 2019

40M FIRECRACKER SPRINT - RESULTS  2019 


This year there were 40 logs submitted - up from last year’s 30 logs. Given the propagation conditions, I think we did an admirable job in spite of the hardships.

Top Dawg and 1st place in High Power was Steve VA3TPS of Fenelon Falls, ON with 51 QSOs and 1,377 points. Steve recently finished the TDW as First Place Bonus Station and 2nd place overall.  Another stellar showing from Steve…congrats!!

Second place High Power was Bill, N4GBK OF Hertford, NC. Bill can be seen in just about any/all events and contests. Third place High Power was Bob, KK6KMU of Oceanside, CA. Bob won Bonus Station 2nd place in the TDW. Congrats to both of you.

 

1st Place Medium Power was Pete, NN9K, with 48 QSOs and 1,344 points. Pete is a newer member who in a bit more than 1 year has collected 198 QSOs for LONP. Second Place went to Jerry, N9AVY. Jerry is closing in on his goal of 1,000 LONP with 928 QSOs. Third Place goes to Joe, WM9I. I wonder if Joe’s twin brother Jeff, WM9F had something to do with Joe’s noteworthy participation?

1st Place Low Power was Steve, W3HF with 43 QSOs and 1,204 points. Steve is 070 #025 and holds the club record with 1,601 LONP QSOs. He again shows us he’s a “real contenda”. Second Place goes to Jim, K5SP. In spite of tough conditions and low power, Jim lit up both coasts from TX. There were only two entries in this challenging category.

1st Place QRP Power was Karl, K5KHK (#2645) who has been a member for just one year and achieved LONP in April. Great job under lousy conditions. We had non-member Jeff, W5BKZ enter as QRP power with a QSO with our own AK hero WL7CG, Alan, who may have convinced Jeff to upload his log. Perhaps Jeff will join us soon.

The new “All Amateurs Welcome” policy continues to enhance our overall experience. It was great to see that Roger, N8TCP finished in 12th place overall. He joined us following the TDW Contest in June as 070 #2693. Also participating was Fernando, YV4YY, 070 #2692. He put DX Bonus points in 6 member’s logs. It’s great to have a new DX to chase.

Special thanks goes to Alan, WL7CG (#2100) who passed out Alaska bonus points to 10 members and Will, KC3EOV (#2216) who put Delaware in the logs of 4 members. We hope to see both of you on the waterfall regularly!

Thanks to all who submitted logs.  Stickers will be in the next mailing.  Complete results are available by clicking Firecracker Results

 

Now, get ready for our next 070 Event, Endorsement Daze – LONP and WALC-NA  

Starting Friday, August 9 to 11. Check out the announcement in the Reflector at Endorsement Daze

Re: GO APE – Plan it - Do it!

Rick - N7WE
 

As an aid to planning your APE, and activating a most wanted Grid Square, I put together the attached using Bob's - KK6MKU - Map and Steve's - W3HF - Most Wanted list.  The Top 40 are highlighted in yellow and the listing on the right is the number of QSOs that have been logged by 070 members with those grids.

Going APE is great fun!  Going APE from one of those grids almost guarantees you'll be the station creating a pile-up!  That is an experience every ham should have at least once!

Re: kc3ef road trip

Dave-
Welcome to chasing grids!  It can be both a lot of fun and very frustrating! 

Attached are a couple of Excel Spreadsheets (old .xls format) that make it easier to track your progress on grids.  The first - Grid Master Spreadsheet - is just a listing of all the grids needed for the 070 Endorsement.  I put it together - with help and guidance from Steve, W3HF, when I first started working on grids.  The second - Maidenhead Grid Map Master - is a very clever spreadsheet created and offered up to the group by Bob - KK6KMU, It is arranged to reflect the grids on a map of the USA. The Red filled squares are grids that are in the lower 48 but are not required for the 070 grid awards.  When you work a grid, you simply use "fill" to color the cell for that grid!  Super!


This morning I created a folder - 070 Grid Chase - in the files section of this group.io and uploaded both these files to it.  So if the attachements won't open for some reason, you can download them from the files section.

Enjoy the chasing grids and hope to work you soon!
