Randy,
That's OK.  Last week I jumped for a KL7 but he was in Kentucky.  Nothing at all wrong with Kentucky but I got that one many times.  All I need is one from up north.

Randy - update that record in your logbook so it doesn't happen again next time your run it through the checker and I'll manually remove your existing credit.

Remember that the COUNTRY may be listed as "Hawaii" as well as the state, since Hawaii is its own DXCC entity (like Alaska), so you may need to change that as well.

Good catch!

We visited some friends up in Rochester several years ago and overnight they got a foot ++ of snow.  When we woke up in the morning and looked out and saw it they just shrugged it off.  "Just a dusting".  I guess it's all relative.

We got about a foot today but it was all powder so not a big deal.  As long as we continue to have power (heat) NBD.

Semis didn't have much control and were sliding and those in 4WD vehicles were mostly in the ditch  which in some areas were kind of a long ways down.  We made it to Madison and grabbed the first hotel room. Everything had cleared up by morning.

Couple years later we were headed back from Minnesota and there we were in middle of snowstorm on I-90 between Austin (Spamtown USA !) and Lacrosse (WI). Speed limit was 70 mph and not many slowed down. Lots of vehicles in the ditches - all had Minnesota license plates !  Pulled off at next gas station/restaurant and broke off about 1 " of ice on nose of van; then rested.

Sometimes people just underestimate the conditions and the capabilities of their vehicles.  As Ray said. "... when in doubt stay home ' !

Years ago, I flew into the Nashville airport just as snow was beginning to fall. It was late afternoon and the sun soon set. The pavement was still warm enough to melt the snow, but as soon as the sun set, the water froze into black ice. Tennessee has no state vehicle inspection, so many people tried to stretch the life of their tires. We only have an emissions inspection in Illinois, but only a fool begins winter without good tire tread up here.

Driving along Briley Pky in a rental car, I saw cars literally slide sideways off the road into ditches. Trucks jackknifed on I-40. Even though I knew how to drive under those conditions, it became apparent that the natives had no clue what they were doing. I took the next exit off the Pky and found a hotel room, even though my reservation for the evning was on the other side of town. The news reports the next day indicated there were 70 accidents per mile on the main roads around town. Unfortunately, one poor soul was killed when he slid off an Interstate ramp and down an embankment.

Thus, I have the greatest of sympathy for those who live in areas who have little or no snow removal equipment and who drive in snow and ice so seldom that they never develop that skill. If you live in such an area, stay home, stay safe, stay warm and play radio.

Just heard this one on 20m PSK ...      " ... locals have never driven on this stuff before and there are accidents all over ..."


Obviously referring to snow and ice... been there saw that years ago.  People in those climates tend to drive on "Bald Eagles" and have never driven on slick surfaces before.  When I got my drivers license there was a shopping center nearby which had a clear iced over parking lot; so took my vehicle (2 WD)  out a did donuts with every intention of losing control, but I quickly learned how to make a recovery from skids and spins.  Later, driving in all kids of weather it paid off; especially on "black ice".

Maybe someone could open up an ice rink in the South for the same reasons and make a fortune charging $100+  an hour for the thrill of what we experience every Winter up North ?

Jerry,
Ha Ha Ha.  I did the exact same thing while I was stationed in Germany.  We would wait until there was  a few inches of snow and we would head out on the tarmac (after getting clearance that no Chinooks were inbound) and began doing doughnuts and getting up to 20 mph and slamming on the brakes to see if we could control the car. (this was before anti-lock brakes)  Several of my buddies joined in and we began doing multi-360's.  What a blast.  There was never a chance of hitting anything because we had a huge tarmac.  The Germans watched and chalked it up to those crazy Americans.  They will do anything.
All this baffoonery paid off for me about two weeks later when I found myself in a real road situation in the snow.  Hit the brakes and safely controlled the car.  Could have ended very badly otherwise.  Still, it was a load of fun in the snow.  Kind of like a demo derby without the demo.
Ahhh... those were the days.

PSKFest 2018 SOON NOW!

Rick - N7WE
 

Soon, very very soon!  PSKFest 2018, the biggest 070 Contest of the year.  Starts Saturday Jan 6, 2018 at 00:00 UTC and runs for 24 hours. 

 

Last year KJ0DY – Jody – who became a 070 member on 12/24/2016, 14 days later on 1/7/17 took Top Dawg!  Can he repeat this year? There were 587 unique calls in last year’s submitted logs.  The propagation forecast looks favorable, so if that holds true there should be plenty of activity again this year!

 

If you are working hard on the 24/7 endorsement, this contest brings lots of action to time slots that are usually hard to fill.  Last year every time slot had logged QSOs except 0900, 1000, and 1100 UTC.  A late, late evening/early morning could pay off big!

 

Special Note:  The Entry Categories and Power Limits are slightly different this year, so be sure to check out the rules HERE before the start of the contest.  See you all on the waterfall!

Re: Hawaii

There's a boatload of HI & AK calls that are stateside.  It's like walking through a minefield.
I hevae to reject a lot of HI & AK calls submitted.

Only thing I can suggest is to copy the location the other station sends when you work him. Then double check him against QRZ or FCC databases.
