Dusty -

Exactly. The checker keeps track of both LONP and WABOL for you. Note, though, that you have to "click through" to the LONP page from the main awards progress page to submit for LONP.

Ok, so from a practical stand point, I upload my contacts to the 070 awards checker, and it determines which contacts are valid for counting towards the LONP, or how does that work?

Thanks guys!

Dusty (and Jim) -

Actually there are two definitions, depending on what award you are working on.

For a station trying to earn LONP (or a higher LONP level), it's a contact with another member that has not been worked yet. The station earns a "LONP point" towards his/her own LONP status.

For a station trying to earn WABOL (Worked a Bunch Of LONPers), it's a contact with another member that already holds LONP (that has not been worked yet).

It's a contact with a member that holds LONP. nothing different, the log checker does all the work.

What is the definition of a LONP contact, as opposed to a regular PSK31 contact?

Re: LONP

Jerry N9AVY
 

To paraphase it:

 

Any contact with an 070 member you haven’t already worked.  You can only count LONP contacts once .  After you work the first 100 members, you apply for LONP 100 endorsement to get a sticker which you apply to your LONP Cerificate. 

 

So, if you worked LONP and get a 500 LONP sticker, that means you have worked 500 individual members of PODXS.

 

Endorsements come in values of 100 and after that a sticker for new ones in groups of 50  )150, 200, 250, and so on ). 

 

Hope this helps .

You are not kidding. That’s where being able to “cast a wider net” with better hardware starts to become noticeable, but 900 LONP is no small feat, either; congrats, Jerry!

Those were all tough letters to find and the propagation was better when I completed WTW. .. remember working 20-30 QSOs a day into Europe (that’s how I got my 100 Italian ZIP codes award !).  These days I’m lucky to 1 QSO a day.   Poor conditions and attractions of other digital modes have drawn people away from PSK31 as well.

 

Keep plugging away at WTW  and you’ll finish it !

Jerry,

May I say “thank you” for your good cheer and words of wisdom? As for my  $0.02 worth, those folks had tremendous educations, just not a glut of SCHOOLING! Or the terrible student debt that attends same.

See you OTA!

Re: FT8 vs other modes - my numbers

Jerry N9AVY
 

Rick:

 

I know that every coin has 2 sides.  

 

For example, my brother was a high school drop-out at age 14.  He bummed around the country and ended up in NYC.  He worked doing summer stock and in restaurants, but tried other things.   He went to work for an advertising agency in NYC where he worked at promoting SAS , Sara Coventry jewelry, and Spanish wines; all went well until someone was looking for a promotion and dug into his references to find that he didn’t have a college degree. Even though he was doing great, he was fired. He later was a writer for some TV shows and comedians.   Fast forward a few years and ended up in South Berwick, ME where he rented out a $25/month old schoolhouse for the summer while he sublet his NYC apartment for $250/month ; his actual rent under rent control was $90/month.

 

He ran into some friends in ME and they decided to Winter there, but they all needed jobs.  They asked what they all knew and answered “restaurant biz”.  Very quickly it all came together and they opened up a place in Portsmouth (NH) called “The Blue Strawbery”.  My Brother was the Chef and the other 2 handled the Maitre’ d, public relations and bookkeeping jobs. Doing 2 seating of 36 per night they all became very successful. They eventually bought the entire building and opened up a chowder house in one part while collecting rents from other shops. Later they opened a restaurant in Memphis (TN).  While all this was happening my Brother, the H.S. dropout, began writing a cookbook which turned into another.  He went on to write 5 or 6 other books, a DVD and did guest speaker gigs (at $ 2 - 3K a pop) and received an Honorary Degree from a University . Add to that he had a small cooking program for WCVB-TV in Boston and was written up in major publications worldwide; even wrote a cooking article for Farmer’s Almanac !

The restaurant in NH closed down after he left to write more books.   There were many other honors he received, but I can’t recall them all.  I know he also taught a cooking class for blind people which gave some the courage to move out on their own.

 

To sum this all up, I’d say for a drop out he did well for himself.

 

I’ve met other people who have had little education and have done well.  One man I knew invented a machine in his garage and went on to own a huge company in Illinois as well as others in CA & NC.   There was another  with same story who started out in his garage.

 

These people are unique people whose minds work differently from the rest of us and may have been bored silly in college.  We need college-educated people, but we also need trades people. So, yes, there are 2 sides to every coin !

True Jerry, but every coin has two sides. 

After my father died, that law provided a job for me to keep my mom and myself (pumping gas nights and weekends) and still pay for my college.  But before that, I had also worked as a "grease monkey" (literally the kid in the shop who greased the log trucks every Saturday) while in high school.  So yeah, even a chimpanzee can pump their own gas.  And a "grease monkey" can finish college and have a career.  Two sides to everything.
