2017 Contest Certificates/Dog Tags

Matthew King - AK4MK
 

This is pretty sad, but I've lost my list of 2017 Contest Certificate recipients for the year.  That is to say, I don't have a list of people that I've already sent the certificates and Rollo Dog Tags to so far this year.

Anybody that has received one for 2017, PLEASE let me know. I'm trying to avoid sending out duplicates, especially on the dog tags.

Add my welcome to the list Bryon.   Glad to see you taking up the APE program, I am positive that you will hit the decks running, and do an excellent job of managing that program.  Welcome Aboard

Hey, y'all!

I just wanted introduce our new APE coordinator, Bryon Negrom, W7RIV.  

Bryon has been active in our group, contributed to the APE effort in the past with an activation or two, and is excited to help out.

He'll be promoting APE throughout the year, gathering information on scheduled APE events to make a "living" APE schedule, coordinating with APE activators after the fact to get the Tall Tale reports and pictures, and writing "after action" articles for the website. 

He'll also be tabulating all those that contact the various APE activations so that we can get back to receiving our APE certificates (for the activators) and our APE stickers (for the activators and their contacts). YEAH!

Please check out the newly updated Staff Directory that includes other position updates as well:

Bryon will be working with me to coordinate/publish the past APE results for which I have information. I know some info was sent to Larry Brown, WB5CXC before his untimely passing. That data will need to be sent again, but we'll try to figure out what we have on hand first, then request information again.

We want to have a bumper crop of APE events this upcoming year, so put on your thinking caps and start planning!

Thanks for stepping up for this.  Big job, but I'm sure you will handle it well. 
I'm hoping to "Go APE" for the first time this coming August!

Thanks for the welcome Rick. And great on the APE this August. I have lots of fun doing it. I'll put you down on the list. What do you think 14 days long enough. =) Okay, maybe not 14 days, I'll leave the dates open.

Yep the analyzer shows the SteppIR is 1:1 on 40
The B'nut vert and the OCF are good with tuner on 40 and 80.
The 135ft vert looks good with tuner on 160
Worked a few JAs es VKs this morning on 40M FT8 and one ZL on 80M
so think things are ok.

You think maybe you've had some water ingress into some coax or something like that? Do you have an antenna analyzer that you can scan/sweep your antenna with to be sure all is well?
 
Just a thought... best of luck with it, my friend! :-)
