Log Checker Stuck?

Mike Besemer <mwbesemer@...>
 

I uploaded my log to the checker about 25 minutes ago and it still says running.  Tried the REFRESH button after 5 minutes or so with no change.

Not a bit deal to me I know everyone is busy with PSK Fest, but wanted to let everyone know.

Will be out there on 40 & 20 in about half an hour.

Need to dig a path to the shack now -9F here and fairly high wind.

Hope to see you.

I'm wondering if anyone else on the Left Coast is getting workable 40M traces from the eastern side of the Mississippi this morning.  I've collected a few Q's from this side of the river, but otherwise it's somewhere between rough and nope.  It was about the same last night, unfortunately, although I did pick up a GA and NC.

Wishful thinking I believe. We got at least a foot and half on ground and my waterfall is full of ghosts and echos. Maybe I need to start pouring salt out there. 5 contacts on 40 tonight. Hopefully 20 will be better in morning.

Re: endorsement counts

Matthew King - AK4MK
 

Hey, Randy... a few things I just noticed in your log run from today.  I've numbered the highlighted points below, 1-6. I point them out here so that all may see how closely one has to look at the report sometimes to see that it is actually accurate.

1 - the "run date" is indeed 05-Jan-2018 @ 16:32, so it's the current run with immediate results.  They're just not what you expected! :-) I can explain that, I think, though...
2 - 20180104 is listed as the most recent 2018 date in your 365. That's because of....
3 - 20170105-06 are already accepted by the 365 checker for those dates. You shouldn't expect to see any more January 2018 dates until you hit....
4 - 20160109 is the last date before 20170116, so you can fill in the 10th-15th with 2018 dates and expect to see them show up here.  It's just looking at the day and month, not the year for the 365 award. You'll achieve the 365 [180] level when you activate 10JAN (2018)!
5 - the BELGIUM award ended on 31DEC2017.  It'll appear here for a bit longer, but no more QSOs will count towards it.
6 - just another sign that the run is current - you filled in a 24x7 slot with a QSO from today. (20180105 061131 N5ZTW 40M PSK31 061131 Fri-06:xxto be specific!

(we haven't forgotten about your 365 PDF that DOES appear to be screwed up - it'll just take David some time to get to it and sort it out, but the 365 checker itself is keeping an accurate tally)

Keep on carryin' on, Randy - you're doing just fine!

After uploading an adf, how long should it take the endorsement checker to update.I added a new Belgium that isn't showing and a total of 10 so far today, and my 365 isn't showing the new ones for today.

Re: Lousy Condx, PSKFest and Prosigns

 

Stick with it guys...
45++ years of chasing DX has taught me that there are changes in propagation every 15 minutes...
Some are subtle, some atre dramatic...

Agreed Mike — Condx are just really bad. I got on a little bit a go figuring signals would be abound but NOT!! Very spotty to say the least.

Wow… lousy conditions in GA tonight. QSB is rapid and deep. Seems like it’s been that way since the supermoon… or maybe since the lousy weather set it. Regardless, it’s been stinky.
I’m also seeing quite a few stations NOT using the prosign ‘K’ at the end of their CQ; I’m seeing “CQ CQ de WM4B WM4B”…. and that’s it. With conditions being so bad, that prosign at the end is pretty important.
Ok… off my soapbox!
Good luck everyone… I’m giving up for a while until the band cleans up.
