It's the GREAT PUMPKIN (SPRINT) Charlie Brown!

Rick - N7WE
 

Are you ready for some PUMPKIN?  The 2017 ANNUAL GREAT PUMPKIN SPRINT starts Saturday October 14th!

 

This fun, fantastic 070 contest is PSK31 only on 160m only.  The contest window is 24 hours but YOU get to choose which 6 hour block works best for you and your time zone.  The contest period starts at 2000 UTC (4 PM EDT, 1 PM PDT) and runs until 2000 UTC on Sunday October 15th.  3 power categories, ATTA BOY sticker for all participants, top scores for each category from each time zone receives a certificate, and highest score gets Top Dawg certificate and a Rollo Dog Tag!  

 

If you don't have a 160m capable antenna, now it the time to rig something up.  Forget "I don't have enough room for a 160m antenna."  If it will load, it's a go!  And this is the best event of the year to work on the Top Band Endorsement.  Only 20 different stations required, yet only 37 member hold this endorsement!  Here's your chance to join that select group and chase the GREAT PUMPKIN all at the same time.

Looking at the spots Rick, it seemed to be one super long hop from here in NE to South and Central America. I got two, Argentina and Chili. Fading out here now. 

Too bad there were no SA PSKers.

Thanks for the post. I missed those 3 days last October due to hurricane Matthew. I was on track with at least 1 Q per day this year until Irma and then missed 8 days. No Power! This endorsement takes a really strong commitment and some luck. I have real admiration for those who completed this daunting endorsement in 2016, it's first year
So, I will need some help on Oct 6,7,8 then I can take a rest.

First up will be NU4C - Paul - of Ormond Beach FL.  His magic day is October 8.  He has just 3 days left to fill - October 6, 7, and 8. Paul has already completed Leap Day and 24/7, so getting his 366 will automatically qualify him for the Clock and Calendar Endorsement!

Second will be VA7GEM - Barry - (also known by several other calls - particularly Canadian 150 Anniversary Specials) of North Vancouver BC Canada.  His magic day will be October 18.  It is the only day he has left to fill.  Check out his other calls on QRZ.  A QSO with any of his calls will complete it for him.

Third, and the last member who can complete this October, is W9SMR - Stan - of Sarasota FL.  His magic day will be October 25th and he has 4 days left to fill - October 22,23,24, and 25.

For these 3 it has been a long, long road.  If you see them calling, give them a reply and help them achieve this difficult, yet rewarding, endorsement.

Great update Stan!  Thanks for posting it.  There are a million adventures in Ham Radio and all too often the fun stories don’t get told.  Yours is a great one.  366 takes dedication, perseverance, and overcoming obstacles.  That’s what it is all about.  We will be watching for you and cheering you on to the finish line.

Paul – Wish I could say I’ll work you but I guess we are just too close – even on 40 and 80.  I can see others working you, but no trace on your replies.  With only a vertical, (HOA!) I have no NVIS component.  But we had some great QSOs when I was out west!  Good luck and I’m sure there will be lots of members looking for you on the 6th, 7th, and 8th.

Rick,


Thanks for the SPOT!!


This snowbird is still in NE Indiana until mid-October. I have pretty much recuperated from KC9UR, Bob and my  Pontoon Portable APE and am ready to help out and to be helped out.


I will be looking for Paul from my Indiana QTH and after I return to FL, I will look for Barry, too. My generous XYL has agreed to alter family travel plans so that I can stay at home and concentrate on 366 for those 4 missing days from October 22 - 25. Help appreciated!!


Getting to this point involved not only operating from both "home" QTHs, but from a baggage cart in a Knoxville, TN motel parking lot, from a Condo balcony in Hilton Head, our daughters' patios in Cleveland and Dayton, OH, and Remote from Corbin, KY. There taking advantage of the generous loan of remote-able equipment by Gary, WB9AYD and the use of the Sarasota Power and Sail Squadron station. That is FL, IN, OH, TN, KY, and SC. Quite a variety of solutions to a vexing logistical problem.

The missing 4 days were a conscious decision on my part. I declined to distract in any way from celebrating my XYL's aunt Olga's 90th birthday bash in Baltimore, MD. Enough sacrifices had already been solicited.


As I often quip with KC9UR:
"Who has more fun than a Ham??" (WHMFTAH?)

If you are not having as much fun as I am, you are just not trying!!

Good DX, Fun Times and Good Health, 73

If things ever quiet down around here and I get time on the air, I'd be happy to help out those who need to finish C&C.   Right now, I have about 3 or 4 lengthy jobs on my "to do" list and a few loose ends to tie up.  Hope to have everything out of the  way by end of October.  We'll see... been a very busy summer workwise.

Re: Croatia ???

I know there is all kinds of DX on CW... that's why my DXCC is at 336 confirmed. After getting to around 280 on SSB, I went to CW .   When you're chasing DX, if you can't do CW then, you're just spinning your wheels.
 
However, I thought this was a PSK31 group and any discussion of DX on other modes seems irrelevant.  Since all endorsement are for PSK31 only ... at least that was my understanding when I joined PODXS.  Please correct my if I'm wrong.
