Re: Another 366!

Rick - N7WE
 

Hey Chris-

Welcome to the chase.  It is a fun effort.  Here are some tips others have passed along as they made the run. 

1.  Try to get on every day as close to 00:00 UTC as you can.  Then if prop or other problems jump up, you still have time to sort things out.  It gets to be almost like checking into a net....but there is no net.

2.  Upload your log to David's Award Progress Checker regularly.  That way if you should loose your log (hard drive crash etc. - it happens) you will only have to sweat recreating it from the last upload to the present.

3.  Don't ever give up!  If you miss a day, it will come around again next year!  There is no time limit for completion.  It's a marathon, not a sprint.

4.  Have fun!  You will develop a group of friends that are there almost every time.  Those friendships last long after you have completed the 366.

Good luck and I'll be watching for your call.

What Pat - ON2AD - didn't say is that he is almost there!  August 11 and 12, and then September 25th is his magic day.  And he has already completed 24/7.  If you see him call...work him!

Congrats are in order for WA3WZR - Loren!  He completed his 366 today.  Loren becomes only the 18th person to achieve this difficult milestone.  He is also only 12 hour blocks way from completing his 24/7.  When that is done he will have done it all and earned the Clock and Calendar - 24/7 and 366!  Well done Loren.

GREAT WORK!  That goes to Loren and the other folks that have recently finished the 365, 366, and/or 24/7. 

Accomplishing all three earns you the "Clock and Calendar" award, a very prestigious award in our club!

Y'all keep up the good work, ya hear? :-)

Re: Hawaii

Hey Randy,

Were you surprised at how well he came in when you worked him?  heh heh.
Same thing happened to me when I was looking for Hawaii.
Now I only need Alaska and I found several that have apparently moved to the lower 48.  Nuts!
The search continues.

As one of those who approve endorsement on the checker, I can assure you that there are many more *fake* Alaska & Hawaii stations which are not where they were first licensed   AL7MH  (AZ)   comes to mind...have rejected many endorsements  for AL7MH . 
 
I suggested earlier that those applying for AK & HI  endorsements check QRZ.com and/or FCC database to make sure that stations worked are in correct state. I guess some software automatically inserts  Alaska for every AL/KL prefixes  and same  for KH6/AH6 prefixes being assigned to Hawaii.   This proves that sometimes people are smarter than computers.
