Re: Valentine Contest Exchange

Jim K5SP
 

I am putting the callsign of the station calling in my reply had a couple oinstances where I called someone with  K5SP Jim OM TX, and another station responded to that ( I was trying to work AK4MK), and another station responded.  to eliminate that I am using  AK4MK Jim OM TX in my response to a calling station so he knows I am talking to him.

Re: Valentine Contest Exchange

Matthew King - AK4MK
 

I think an "exchange" could just be Barry-OM-BC, since, as you said, the callsign is established in the prior "exchange".

That's my take, anyhow.

Good luck!

The rules stipulate the exchange should be:
Callsign, Name, either "OM" or "YL" and your State/Province/Country (SPC).
For me this would be:
VA7GEM-Barry-OM-BC

Traditionally the callsign gets dropped from the exchange as we have already exchanged it.
Will Barry-OM-BC be acceptable and can I accept the same from others or do we need to make our callsign part  
of the exchange.
Thanks for clarification

Tuned up my wire

Well guys, I finally got some time to sit down and dink with my station. I used the Heathkit tuner to tune up that QSO king wire on 40, 80 and 160 meters and could achieve an SWR of 1.5:1 or less on all three.

So I can tune it whether or not Ill be able to do anything is another story time will tell. This time I have the low end about 10 up in a tree, coming off the 35 tower. Running roughly north/south.

I hope the low end is to the south.

So the question becomes-
Should I try 40M mid-day like the east coast.
Should I try 20M by myself?
Hmmm
