Re: Work the Heavens

David Westbrook
 

These spelling-type of things really just boil down to working a certain number of A's, certain number of B's, etc.
In this case, the goal would be to work this many of each of these letters (first letter of suffix):
      9 A
      1 B
      6 C
      5 E
      3 G
     11 I
      2 L
      1 M
      3 N
      5 O
      3 P
      1 Q
     10 R
      8 S
      3 T
      5 U
      1 V
Noting to do with words, or DX, or propagation or anything to learn or experiment with -- purely just making any contacts .. personally, for that reason, I don't like WTW or similar as an endorsement series.

If it were in the WTW model, this set of signs is basically a "continent", and the the signs (e.g. LEO) are "countries";  And if by WTW rules then you could only work a callsign  once.  e.g. for North America, if you work Jerry N9AVY, it would apply to CANADA, but you could not work him again to apply towards UNITEDSTATES.   So if you worked him for CANCER, could not work him again for TAURUS.
but it coulud be implemented however anyone wanted.

Rick -- yes, they are keeping we quite busy!   ham time is basically zero :( ...  Probably won't be on the waterfall anytime soon (maybe PSKfest in jan, or next july to chase 13colonies).    I'm pretty slow & behind on support/bugfixes for ham sites (checker, scorer, hamclubs), so don't have any plans for feat-adds unless really trivial (regular endorsement updates). 

not reading the majority of the list anymore either ... caught this thread by chance.

73!

Believe a call can only be used once per continent name.  Can be used in multiple continents, for a maximum total of nine times.

Naw Jerry.  Like WTW you can call the same station again for a different segment.  That means for 7 periods out of 12 you would be a very popular guy!

Work the Heavens (WTH) - 12 different segments


In the model of Work the World, (except a lot, lot quicker and easier!) work stations to spell out the 12 Signs of the Zodiac. Same rules as WTW with the only difference being the QSO's must take place within the dates for that particular Zodiac sign.

Don't know how difficult that would be for David to set up in the Checker, but it sure would be easier to work on than DX what with the really lousy prop that is supposed to hang on for another 2 years or so!  Just my suggestion.

Just wanted to announce my plans to operate an August PSK Expedition while portable from Renfrew, Ontario, Canada.

I will be on the air as W5MMW/VE3 from grid FN15 starting Saturday, August 19th and running until Saturday, August 26th.

I'm planning on focusing on 20m during the day, 40m at night and occasionally 6m, but I can tune and operate on everything from 80 - 6 so I'm definitely open to a Sked if you need that grid on a particular band.

Likewise, please don't hesitate to reach out for a Sked if you'd like! I am hoping to be on the air each day for at least a few hours (mostly in the afternoon, Eastern time zone). Some operation will be done from pontoon boat! Pictures at https://qrz.com/db/W5MMW/VE3

I am also planning on being on the air running PSK during the Solar Eclipse QSO Party (August 21).

I will QSL as W5MMW/VE3 (pse include suffix) to LoTW and eQSL and will be handling Paper QSL cards from my QTH in Redwood City, CA. No SASE necessary, and I'll be printing special cards for this APE.

Thanks! 73
