Damfino.  I haven't done much on chats.  I guess we'll all learn as we go along unless someone else with more chat room experience chimes in.

Re: CQ 365

I like the idea of making our CQ call to wrap up the 366 as CQ 366.
I am down to seven dates and if all goes well and my station behaves and the wife keeps the weed eater away from my vertical, I'll make it this year.
I only need:
June 24, 29, 30
July 2, 11, 15, 18
I got the Leap Year last year, whew!  HI HI
When my back pain allows, I'm trying to be on the air more to help others too.
I most get on the air in the range of 9:00 a.m. to noon CDST, I'm in SW OKLAhoma.
Next, figuring out the times I need for the hour endorsement thingy.  HI HI
73 and good luck to all working on completing endorsements in 2021!

Re: 365 Endorsement - Stories?

 

We would usually take a road trip in Sept or Oct but for some reason didn't take one in 2019 so I got those last few days needed for 365/366.  Then came the pandemic so didn't go anywhere so did 365 again in a single year.  Just for laughs, I went thru my log and found the last day I didn't have a PSK contact was 5/15/19.  Too bad there isn't a  730/731 endorsement.  hihi  Looking forward to see those CQ-365 calls this year.

Dave, 
I will be using that chat, combined with email to try and stir up 30 meter activity - 30 on 30 is still needing about 10 more QSOs.

We can use this chat to set up skeds for WARC contacts and report band openings and such.  This has not been at the top of my list since I didn't have the right antenna.  But fortunes changed and my G5RV Jr likes the bands and I will be trying harder to get this endorsement this summer.

Re: 365 Endorsement - Stories?

Yep, Rick is right - I used Teamviewer and a tablet to operate my rig remotely and was able to finish some days from work, and some days while on vacation. And I also used the strategy of working the time before and after 00:00z to get two dates in a short period. I started in a leap year, so that gave me an advantage, but didn’t get a clean sweep as some members were able to do. However, I didn’t miss many, and was able to pick the missing dates up the second year, to complete not only 365 but also Clock & Calendar, as I had completed my 24/7 by then as well. That one was more challenging than the 365 in my opinion. Having a buddy helps, one who is willing to schedule times in the wee hours to make those 3:00 am contacts that seem the hardest to get. It would have been hard to finish any other way. Good luck everyone!

Completing 365 can take a bit of ingenuity - particularly when circumstances take you away from the shack.  We were traveling to family for Christmas and I ended up making my 12/24 QSO portable from a hotel parking lot.  If memory serves, Paula - K7PAX used TeamViewer to operate remote so she could complete some days.  And Steve - W3HF operated from a club station a long, long way from home so as not to miss any day.  All part of the challenge and the fun of 365.


I'm sure there are some great stories out there!  Consider posting yours here to encourage others. And answer those "CQ - 365" calls.  You can't do 365 all by yourself!

Thanks for all the replies.  I will start a chat and will add CQ 365 to my calls on those days.  And will look for anyone calling that especially.  I haven't done much WARC and need a bunch for that.  I'll start a chat for that also and maybe some of us can meet and get those qso's in the log.  Not too late to plan for your APE, either.

I haven't read all the responses yet so I may be duplicating here.  I would suggest when you call CQ adding CQ 365.  I might not recognize the call but I'll respond if I see the 365.

All,

I am going to start  working on my 365 Endorsement.  I have many days in June, July, August and September.  Starting next week June 15 I will try to be on as many days as I can.  I would greatly appreciate a friendly greeting even if we have worked each other before.  Plan is to be on 20 meters about 2000 UTC for an hour or so for as many days as I possibly can.  Anyone else who wants to work on their 365 endorsement is  welcomed.  Plan is subject to change, especially when family is involved.

Thanks,

we usually met at 2330Z to get "day or hour 1" and then worked awhile from 0001Z on to get "day or hour 2"
i.e. operate for a period around the zulu day change and fill two slots that day instead of just one.
