FT8 is an annoying mode.  They have their own frequencies so why do they have to 14070-071 ???    In my mind that makes those ops a bunch of LIDs. Almost makes me want to go back to cw, but not yet.

Spots!!! - KB3RAN/4 Dave is continuing his portable ops on 20m this morning and KD0NMD Dudley is also on from NE.  Dudley is EN21 if you haven't filled that grid.  Both with strong signals into central Florida.  Dudley said I was weak, but things should improve to the west as the sun does its trick on the ionosphere.

This morning QRZ is reporting a SFI of 94 and a K of 0!!!!  It has been a long time since we've seen those kind of numbers.  Definitely a day to get on the bands and have some fun!  Hope to see you on the waterfall.

Dave -

That looked perfect to me, so I just uploaded it for you (with your callsign) to see how the checker reacted. 

And it worked. It's showing the QRP sticker as an endorsement to apply for, probably just like you saw. (I left that step for you to do.)

I can't explain what happened yesterday, but there was at least one other member whose upload was messed up yesterday. (That was Milt N6MG--he tried again late last night and it's still not right.)

We'll see if this one sticks around longer today. And I can't promise that the endorsement processing will work, but at least the log-checking part still seems to be intact for this one.

73,
Steve

Re: Just worked our newest member

 

Very unusual indeed. I checked my log again, and it's there.
I'll chalk it up as experience. 
And, if you say the qso isn't in YOUR log, then I'll sure remove it from my log.
Ignore the LotW request for confirmation.
Now, I get to look forward to our 1st qso all over again!
Will you be operating in the 070 Club's Three Day Weekend Contest next weekend?...
June 4th, 00:00 Z to June 6th, 23:59 Z? 72 hours!
If so, see ya there.

Howdy guys,

Hate to be the topic of controversy.  I don't have QSOs with either KB3RAN or N6MG.  I've tried to pour through all my logfiles in case I've made a mistake.  FLDIGI saves a text .log file of text that's captured, not sure if it's a signal I've selected or not, in which case, I see KB3RAN in a QSO with CO7HH around 5/21 2214Z.  That's the only reference to him I can find.  I have no QSO in any mode on LOTW either.  Can you guys double check?

To the best of my recollection, the first exchange was Jerry, N9AVY, and right after was John, KC3FL.  I've yet to decide the best way to keep track, but I had deliberately made just an empty 070.adif log file the other day in the meantime.

In the "good old days" that was acceptable, but the FCC has grown into just one more big government bureaucracy as evident by their now requiring every ham to have an email address (dumb because I have a friend who moved to TN recent who has no internet service at home and has to drive 40 minute to public library for internet !)  and let's not forget the now required FRN number one has to get before taking an Amateur exam ! My friend can't even get decent cell service has has to go to end of long driveway down by highway to get a marginal signal...  great technology ... back to 2 tin cans and a piece of string !

On another note... just read ARRL Letter and they have now started a BOTA  (Boats On The Air) to go along with POTA & SOTA.    Wonder how long it will be before the is an OHTA (Outhouses On The Air)   Emoji

Jerry -

There are no 4-character suffixes in current FCC-issued amateur radio licenses. (I think there may be some in other countries.) But that doesn't mean that there haven't been 4-character suffixes issued for US amateur radio operators in the past.

One of my favorite stories in amateur radio callsign history was driven by the fact that the Federal Radio Commission (the predecessor of the FCC) decided to issue special callsigns for "permanently portable" stations. (Up until that time, you had to specifically request in advance and receive permission to operate portable.) For a few years, the format of these calls were suffixes that started with two letters Zs, e.g., W3ZZA. Obviously, though, that would allow the issuance of only 26 callsigns in each of the nine then-existing districts. So when they reached ZZZ, they started with ZZAA, then ZZAB, etc. Eventually the FRC (or perhaps the FCC, which took over in 1934) started issuing "regular" callsigns for the permanently portable stations, and the ZZ calls disappeared a few years later when they expired.

I can document hundreds of these callsigns in my callbooks from that era. But just for fun, I bought a 1932 QSL card for W8ZZAP:

Re: QRP sticker #endorsements

Dave -

You uploaded to the 070 awards checker, right? http://hamclubs.info/070-checker/  ?

There's no sign of your file there. The only upload shown for today was N7WE at 17:11 EDT (2111z). 

A few of us were talking about this and aren't sure what's going on. Rick N7WE did his upload as a test after he didn't see your file.

Two suggestions:

1. Try uploading again, just to see if it was a temporary glitch. And take special note of any messages it displays.

2. Send me (directly) the ADIF file, assuming it's not your entire log. I'd like to look at the QRP entry.
