QSLs

Jerry N9AVY
 

Did all my QSLing chores for S Pat's Test this morning and  got 28 returns via Eqsl and 30 returns via LoTW.  Looks like more are now using LoTW than before. Past contests QSL returns were not as good on LoTW.

Am still getting LoTW returns from back in the 1980's... guess it's catching on.

Contest wrap up

Jerry N9AVY
 

I had fun in contest even though bands were crummy. Started out on 20m, went to 40m and then 80m to wrap it up for the night around midnight (local). Started of on 40/80 m this AM and jumped back and forth between bands. Was very frustrated with all the racket on 20m (FT-8 and a few other modes).  Took a nap this afternoon while listening to 40m and when I woke up 40m was deader than a door nail ... never seen it look like that ...hope nothing died.

Picked up a few in last hours.  Was disappointed that I didn't find very many new 070 members as only need about 8 more unique calls/070#  to finish next level of LONP.  However, can't really blame the new members for avbaoiding the terrible conditions. 

Can't wait until we open up our contests to everyone.

Thanks to all for the great contacts and to those who (AJ3DI) stuck with me until we got info exchanged.

73, Jerry  n9avy

Sherri :

You'll et the hang of contests in time.  Getting logs right has always been a problem for me and I usually end up with a few numbers that don't match or got omitted because I was falling asleep, hi !  Chalk it all up to experience.  The idea of contests is to make you a better operator, able to copy what you hear/see quickly and accurately.

Mat & Paula gave you some starting points and you should be able to take it from there. If you have quesions please ask the list, they're only too glad to help.  It's not like there was money riding on the contest ... or was there ?

Thanks, Paula! I will look tomorrow with fresh eyes. I suspect the primary problem lies with me not knowing how the fields in the fldigi log map to an adif file. I really just don't know / can't decide what to use for a logging app so I'm using native logging for now. 🤷

Thanks!

Re: St. Patty’s Day Contest

Matthew King - AK4MK
 

Sherri - I looked at your log submission for the contest.

Looks like you don't have the 070 #'s for each QSO saved in either the SRX field or the comment field, and the DXCC field is blank as well.

Take a look at those things and go from there.

Let me know if I can help you, please.

This rig has been acting goofy lately.  Have to watch the output power because running up & down the band there tends to be less power on low end and too much on the other end of band.  Feel like an old broadcast engineer having to constantly "ride the gain".

Don't thing I'll get rid of FT-1000MP, just for a couple of freak things, but I'd be interested in knowing if anyone else has had a similar problems with an FT-1000.

BTW, when his happens I can usually narrow bandwidth down to 500 or 250 Hz. , but then I can't watch the entire band.
