Re: 31 Flavors Sprint – Heads Up !

Don - KM4UDX
 

The Sprint gets promoted this monday night at 9:00pm ET at the Weird and Wacky Digital Mode Playgroup.  My goals are (1) increase the # of sprinters, (2) educate folks on multi PSK modes, and (3) promote the wonderderful 070 club.

Join us on zoom to see your club promoted, and have some fun with non-FT8/4 modes.  I will demo all of the allowed PSK modes. 

We typically use 7071+2k Olivia 500/16 then change modes from there.

For Rules and detailsClick Here: 31 Flavors Rules

 

This is one of our most interesting contests. If you have never tried these different PSK modes, don't be shy.  Jump in and give it a go!  You’ll be an expert in no time!

 

Last year, we had 45 Logs submitted, which is the highest since 2016. Lee, N5SLY, won Top Dawg honors and First Place in the 50W category with a spectacular 92 QSOs utilizing all 6 modes.

 

Let’s see if we can give Lee some competition this year ! 

Hope to work you in all 6 modes!

Me?, an engineer of the structural discipline.
Dr's, Lawyers, Engineer's, PhD's at the CDC, and on and on are among the known titles.

Hey, I saw that movie and lots of others which bombed at the box office Emoji

Remember the old Bob Newhart show where  he played a psychologist. One day he went back to viit his old college professor, played by Keenan Wynn, and he asked the prof what he learned after all those years in psychology.   The prof's answer was, "It's a crock !".  Emoji

I'm reminded of a movie nobody saw called "Max Dugan Returns"  A

money in that and the grandfather replies: "There is ff you pick the

Re: Diversity

 

Ronnie Milsap was one of my first 10 or 20 CW contacts as a new novice in the 70's.  Didn't know his last name till I looked his call up in the Call Book.  Remember that monster?
Barry Goldwater was a regular on the 07/67 machine in Baltimore.  He would hit it when he was flying in and out of DC, liked the coverage of that repeater.
My favorite qso happened after I finished running phone patches on 15 mtrs to Mcmurdo  AFB at abt 3 or 4 AM back in the early 80's when I got a call from JY1.  No suffix and thought he was a pirate station but decided to work him.  In the qso he asked me what I did for work and I told him that I managed a Radio Shack.  He told me he had one of everything they ever sold and I said to myself "Shuuuuuure"
Then I asked him what his line of work was and that's when I made the mistake of addressing him as Your Highness.  I received a lecture that there are no titles or royalties in ham radio, only first names.  It was a nice chewing out and I remember he had a good sense of humor.

Of course I meant “retired” not “retied” but maybe that fits - instead of being tied to a job, I am tied to raising an active puppy!
