Steve,

How does the rule work for calls like JY1 or VB7150. (Or does it not work?)

I guess JY1(who I had the privilege of working several times) is moot, but VB7510 is pretty common these days!

There have been a number of 070 endorsements (and contests) based on "suffix", and they have always been defined and/or interpreted as the first letter after the last number in the callsign. In addition to BINGO and WOTMC (word of the month), there was MONA and HER CAT (2003, 070's first use of a suffix-based endorsement), WTW (ongoing), and the ERIN GO BRAGH bonus points in the St Patty's day contest.

Yes, it probably could (and should) be more carefully worded in all of the various places where it's used, but I think the club's intent to be consistent is clear.

P.S. The "in general" in the rules is to allow for some strange cases. JY1 and VB7150 are examples where this rule fails.

I've always Interpreted the suffix as the first letter after the numeral. Thus, N9AVY will only count as an "A" . Of course with a call like KZ3T there is only one choice of a suffix. :-)

Maybe thus needs to be better defined in rules, but I guess there will always be those who look for shortcuts. (no offense)

Not trying to look for any shortcuts.  Just trying to be a little logical .

The meaning of ‘suffix’ is:

a letter or a group of letters added to the end of a word, etc. or append, especially as a suffix — that definition tells me it is all the letters after the number in a call sign.

When someone on the air asks you for your suffix, do you just give them the ‘A’  or do you give them
‘AVY’   -  With my old call I can remember and I have still seen people ask for the suffix of their call and they give them all the letters following the number.

Today's summary of Grid activity.

Started in DM85 and worked a couple of stations, but no one looking for grids.  Did not see many traces on at all. BSeem to be having trouble will low power output.  Stopped at the NM welcome station and tightened all of the connectors in the feed line and that seemed to take care of the problem.

Also propagation seemed to be more to the West from my location in TX/NM than to the East.

Worked Barry, VB7150 when at DM75 and then at DM74.  Worked Rick, N7WE at DM75 and just missed him in DM74.  This was an interesting grid, as I40 just skims the top of it for about 20-30 miles.  Stopped for a few minutes at a rest stop to try and get some additional contacts, but not much action.  Several stations answered my CQ, but then did not come back for QSO.  Propagation seemed to be varying.  It did seem to start favoring East/West direction.
Worked stations in WV, FL, GA, AZ, BC, CA, OR, & WA so not to bad for 50 watts to a hamstick mounted on the side of the mini-van.  The xyl did the driving and suggested stopping at the rest area in DM74 to try to give more opportunity for contacts.

Again the major problem was trying to type on bumpy roads, the keyboard on my Asus laptop seems to be somewhat sensitive.  Heading for a couple of days in Las Vegas (looking for real wildlife, not the kind on the strip) and then on to San Jose for a week.  Will be back on the road to Southren CA around Salton Sea and then on to TX coast.

I need one 'U' callsign to complete my SASAC.

In my log, I have AA9UF, CG9UN, K6UAS, KA8UNI, KC9UR, KJ6UF, N2UJN, W6U.

I'm off work until 2 January and I'd love to finish this one up. Any 'U's
who are reading this and can work a sked, please let me know. 20 and 40
meters are best for me, but I can do 10 - 160.

Today's summary of Grid activity.

Started in DM85 and worked a couple of stations, but no one looking for grids. Did not see many traces on at all. BSeem to be having trouble will low power output. Stopped at the NM welcome station and tightened all of the connectors in the feed line and that seemed to take care of the problem.

Also propagation seemed to be more to the West from my location in TX/NM than to the East.

Worked Barry, VB7150 when at DM75 and then at DM74. Worked Rick, N7WE at DM75 and just missed him in DM74. This was an interesting grid, as I40 just skims the top of it for about 20-30 miles. Stopped for a few minutes at a rest stop to try and get some additional contacts, but not much action. Several stations answered my CQ, but then did not come back for QSO. Propagation seemed to be varying. It did seem to start favoring East/West direction.
Worked stations in WV, FL, GA, AZ, BC, CA, OR, & WA so not to bad for 50 watts to a hamstick mounted on the side of the mini-van. The xyl did the driving and suggested stopping at the rest area in DM74 to try to give more opportunity for contacts.

Again the major problem was trying to type on bumpy roads, the keyboard on my Asus laptop seems to be somewhat sensitive. Heading for a couple of days in Las Vegas (looking for real wildlife, not the kind on the strip) and then on to San Jose for a week. Will be back on the road to Southren CA around Salton Sea and then on to TX coast.

From the webpage:

2. Use the suffix of each station's callsign to collect letters to spell out the names of countries, states, provinces, or territories listed on the worksheets. In general the suffix letter is the first letter after the last number in a callsign (in the spirit of the Bingo and WOTMC endorsements).

Hi Rick,

 

Yes, you just missed me in DM74 had just gone back to DM75 when you called.  I did not think my signal was wide, since no one else reported it.

 

Look for you on the next grid.

I plan on leaving Amarillo, TX around 10:30 MST.  DM85 starts about 10 miles from Amarillo, so I will start calling then.  
DM74 is about 2 1/4 hours from Amarillo, so should be in that grid around 12:30 give or take.  I40 runs along the top of the grid, so only a few miles in that grid, from past Cuervo, NM to Clings Corners, NM.  If there is demand will stop at the rest stop to make contacts.  

I will be on 20 mtrs, running about 80 watts using call sign of KC3EF/M for this effort.
