start a chat. we used one for the 24/7 and it made keeping track of who and where things were happening a lot easier.

I'll join (or start one), I'm going to try to finish my 365 this summer too.
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.

Dave,

Will be looking out for you.  I need about 70 more days.  It will probably be next year before I can close mine out.

I picked up June 3rd and now need only June 25 and 26 and July 23 for my 365.  Look for me on those dates, please.  Really want to close out this chase this year.

Milt,
Sure thanks for offering.  Not sure about the time but Ill think about it.  If there are more interested in 40 meters I will come up with a plan.
20 meters just doesn't work for us.  Most of the time I can't even see your trace on 20 meters.

I am retired, so in one sense the government pays me to stay home so I can be on my radio all day long, 7 days a week. LOL

Re: 365 Endorsement

 

Bob,
A good plan for sure!
Let me know when, and probably best on 40m or 80m for us.
I don't think we'd have much of a problem on either band.
If you want to give it a test before then, just 'hollar.

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,

You're not alone.  Noise level is usually about S-9 to 10 db over.  Power lines are buried so there are no poles; however the substation is about 1/4 miles as the crow flies.

Hello everyone -

I discovered the TDW via the contestcalendar.com website and, because I really enjoyed working PSK31 around 15 years ago, I wanted to give it a try. I've been disappointed in the lack of PSK31 ops recently, but I was very pleased to discover a group that was still actively involved in the mode, and further to encounter some very friendly and courteous operators during the weekend.

Although reception is continuously poor at my QTH, I managed to make 38 contacts, which enabled me to apply for membership in this great organization. I was very impressed with the dedication of ops who continued to CQ right up to the last minute on Sunday, especially Barry VA7GEM who was my first contact of the weekend.

Anyway I wanted to thank everyone who went into the logbook during the contest and also to thank Jim K5SP for dealing with membership apps so quickly. I'm very happy to be a member and hope to meet you all on the air.
