Re: Hawaii QSO Party

Looks like flaky prop.  Been listening all day and stations are there one minute and gone the next.  Worked a Polish station through an entire QSO and that was about it for Europe.  Saw a few flickers towards Europe and turned beam west to catch whatever was out there.  Kansas QSO Party and couple stations were in a gone and a CQ.    Yucks, terrible prop !  If things don’t improve I may take up basketweaving, hi !

Rick,

I have the beam pointed to HI and have been monitoring on 20M from the left coast since morning here .  I have seen nothing yet as of now (21:47z 2:47PM local)

They should have been well into the event by now, so either prop or participation is not happening.

Well, yesterday, in just the short time from 1600L to 1800L, I had solid PSK-31 contacts (and long, enjoyable QSOs) from my QTH in Florida with Germany and with a ham camping in the mountains of Montana.  On 20 meters with 40 watts and a simple dipole.  So the bands are not a empty as everyone is complaining about on this forum -- you just have to be persistent in  trying and lucky on propagation.

The state of the PSK31 portion of the 20 Meter band is pretty bad when all you are seeing/hearing is a carrier.
What little time I had yesterday monitoring there, was seeing/hearing that carrier and nothing else  :(
Hope to see some activity later today and a little tomorrow.
Still organizing and unpacking this mess here. Never ending.....

Hawaii QSO Party

Rick - N7WE
 

I note from WA7BNM's Contest Calendar that the Hawaii QSO Party is underway.  Click here for rules.  With Hawaii being one of the 2019 DX endorsement countries, this may be a prime opportunity.  Unfortunately, from here in central Florida, I haven't been able to work a KH call (that was actually in Hawaii) since May of 2017.  Maybe I'll get lucky and get one today!

I'm on now calling CQ on 10.140. I hear a couple of FT4 signals I guess.

It would seem so, on their part. If there was a way to stop them, war could be declared.

Re: Holy Moly ! Bunches of LOTW QSLs

Richard Rohrer
 

As with everyone else, I got my dump of confirmations from Barry.  I also got a ton of bureau cards the last couple of months, most from Germany and Italy, like the bureau dam broke, hi hi.  The oldest ones were from 2015, not nearly as old as Jerry's.  I still get LOTW confirms for when I lived in MD, but since I left in 2009 they probably are the oldest, still not catching up to Jerry.  I did find when I went to send out bureau cards the ARRL outgoing has dropped the $7.00 service charge and is just charging for weight like they use to.  Made sending my 50 sum cards much cheaper that I thought.  

I am leaving for MD/DE this weekend and will be on the air from DE the weekend of Sept 7th and 8th, so I will post operating hours when I arrive in DE.

Barry must be having bad propagation or his station is down.
Thanks Barry for all the LOTW QSL's.
BTW .... I am on 20, 15 & 10 Meters (primarily 20 of course).
Still unpacking, reorganizing and repairing (vertical had to be repaired - old parts). My activity had sparse and timing seems to be no activity when I am on.
I have heard a few, but had antenna problems at the time. Everything is okay now.
I hope to work a few of you all soon.
