The introductory Chimp Chase for qualified portable expeditions away from your home radio shack has concluded. Were you able to get everything working in your Backyard or on the Park picnic benches and make the needed 5 QSOs?.

 

Was your portable operation an official POTA or SOTA?

 

Send us the Glorious and/or Gruesome details using the Reflector or via direct email to me. We want to share your pain and glory!

 

If you had a successful operation, a “CHIMP CHASE Atta-Boy” PDF will be emailed to you.

 

For this introductory attempt to be a valid CHIMP CHASE, the operation must have taken place during the Daze #4 event and have made at least 5 two-way PSK31 contacts with different call signs / bands.  No prior approval was required.

 

 

Endorsement Daze Objective - LONP

 

If you are a new member, this was your Golden Opportunity to start accumulating toward that 100 member contacts required for LONP Membership - Currently, only 451 of our 2,834 members have qualified.

 

The Official Event duration was:

Starting: 00:00 UTC on Saturday, May 22

Ending:  23:59 UTC on Sunday, May 23

 

For Endorsement credit, upload your complete log promptly to the Online Endorsement Checker :  Endorsement Checker

 

If your 070 membership number is above #2786, you should apply for LONP credit by submitting your entire log of member contacts per the Instructions !  

 

 

And please send me your comments and suggestions to improve this Event.

I hope to have a repeat Endorsement Daze in August and if the Chimp Chase is popular, we’ll do another one.

Re: CHIMP CHASE - WB3LGC

Paula,

My "solar generator" is homemade.

I am using a four pack of LiFePO4 20AHr batteries.  -  https://www.batteryspace.com/lifepo4-prismatic-battery-12-8v-20ah-256wh-10c-rate-24-0---un38-3-passed-dgr.aspx

A BMS - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07511RJ9S/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

A 2 Amp MPPT Charge controller from diysolarforu -- see: https://www.diysolarforu.com/store/p3/Solar_Charge_Controller.html for current models (mine is out of stock)

Mounted (with room to spare) in a plastic "ammo" case. -- this size would work: https://www.planomolding.com/hunting/ammo-storage/element-proof-field-ammo-box-medium

I am using a 25 Watt solar panel. -- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M9B6RQI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1   -- The "p3" charge controller will handle 60 Watts.  Use a larger panel.

ALL of my electrical connections use Anderson Power Pole(s).
I use yellow/black for the solar panel.
I use red/black for 12V out.

The charge controller provides a battery voltage readout (as does the radio).  I use a monitor on a 60AHr battery system.  --  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CTKYFTG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
BTW, the 60AHr "pack" uses a different BMS "system" and a 25 Amp DC to DC (plus solar) charge controller and with two hours of driving, I can fully re-charge the battery from the vehicle (see: https://redarcelectronics.com/collections/in-vehicle-battery-chargers-isolators).

--------------------

I ran a Elecraft KX3/KXPA100 (see: *1) at 70 watts into a 1:1 + 9:1 homemade balun with a 12m mast (see: *2) and 12m of wire and an (aprox)20' counterpoise that I use a Coghlan's Camp Laundry Reel for my counterpoise wire (teflon)(see *3).
A 4B + 4G RAM - Raspberry Pi (Headless) ran Fldigi with a USB sound card (see: *4) and Elecraft USB CAT control.  I ran "remote" with VNC from a cooler(?) kitchen table.
BTW, I use a West Mountain RIGrunner for fuses and a fan to keep the Amp cool.

I hope the links save someone time, IF they want to look up what I am "going on" about.

CHIMP CHASE  -  Let Us Know Your Plans

 

You’ve had a couple weeks to make your plans. Please let us know if you plan to go Chimp Chase portable and we will look for you!!

 

A Chimp qualified portable expedition site must be away from your home radio shack. You may use home power but you need to set up a temporary/portable antenna and station away from the home shack. Backyard ops and park picnic benches are encouraged for this category.

Daze #4 and Chimp Chase Report for N7WE/P

Rick - N7WE
 

Well I had a good time!  Not without challenges, but that is part of portable ops.  My plan was to do "car portable" - HamStick on the roof.  That fell apart Friday evening when the coax to the magmount decide to go open inside the mount.  So I switched to the backup plan - wire in the tree come Saturday morning.  Sure could have used a Chimp to run the end of the wire higher up in that tree than 15 feet!  But it tuned OK.

I used my Elecraft K3, microHAM USB III interface, Bioenno 12 Ah battery, and my laptop (which had to run on shore power - another story!) from the lanai.  Backyard portable.  Fortunately, the lanai is screened and has ceiling fans. 

     


Saturday prop was not great and there was lots of PSK63 for the EU contest.  But I managed to make 8 Qs including one with a YV!  Sunday was much better prop and the PSK63 was gone.  I added another 8 Qs (1 dupe from Saturday); 2 more YVs and a VE, so I ended up with 15 distinct calls.  6 were 070 members and one a new LONP credit for me.  DX was 3 - YV and 1 - VE.  All in all a real fun event.

The takeaway?  I've definitely got to do something to improve the portable antenna setup before the next Chimp Chase! 

Thanks to Dave - KB3RAN, and Stan - W9SMR, the guys that put together the Chimp Chase.  At this stage of my life it is pretty clear I'm never going to do an APE.  This was the next best thing to it!  Thank you!

If you had a QSO with me yesterday, and If you so desire, I can take your contact data and log it into QRZ.com and LoTW. Then, I will attempt to submit the info. to PODXS 070 by ADIF format, only if I have 5 or more contacts, in accordance with  the rules.

Subject: [070Club] Lost my Log data from yesterday.... SORRY!

Dear Friends,

Somehow, I lost my log data while trying to transfer my CHIMP contacts from the ACLog to an ADIF file.  Therefore, I cannot confirm anything in QRZ.com and/or LoTW.  I SHOULD HAVE MADE A BACKUP AS I WAS OPERATING.

If you had a QSO with me yesterday, and If you so desire, I can take your contact data and log it into QRZ.com and LoTW. Then, I will attempt to submit the info. to PODXS 070 by ADIF format, only if I have 5 or more contacts, in accordance with  the rules.

Please try and get it to me, anytime this week by email to: tprovenz@...  .

Thank you.

I am so sorry for any inconvenience.

Blessings and 73,

Thanks Rick - I am going to take a break too, and try 40 meters tonight as well. Maybe we’ll see each other, and some others as well!

QRT.  Sun is beating in on the lania so I'm out of here.  May be back this evening to try 40m.  Maybe not.  Good luck and fun to all.  (Congrats on making CHIMP Paula!)

John:

There's an IC-7300 group on facebook which seems to be growing daily. He can run his problem by them and there seems to be a lot of knowledgeable hams there.

I don't have an IC-7300 but I was trying to help a fellow ham out that was having a problem with the rig going into RX after transmitting for a few minutes.  The rig would switch to RX however the software was still sending data to the rig so he thought it might be a RF problem.  It turned out that the IC-7300 has a timeout feature that defaults to zero (off) however he updated the firmware to version 1.40 and that version defaults to 3 minutes.  Not sure if Icom intended to do that or if it was an "OOPS", but every time he goes to RTTY or PSK he has to reset it, bummer.  Just a heads up if anyone out there runs into the problem or hears another ham with the same situation.

Rick, I never made it back on 40 meters last night. Couldn’t tune my antenna to 40 meters and was too tired to troubleshoot and mess with it. May or may not be back as a  chimp today, but could work from base to hand out lonp credits for new members if the propagation is good for us out here in the upper left corner!

Taking a break.  Haven't seen a new one in the last while, which is a too bad as prop is MUCH better than it was yesterday and the PSK63 contest is over.  If you can get on this afternoon, you should make contacts and have some fun.  Back later.
