Run roughshod over them !  They'll get tired of fighting QRM or start a war ! 
 
 Seriously, someone needs to come up with a decent band plan to keep this kind of stuff from happening.  I doubt that ARRL will do much since their interest lays in promoting other things.

Has anyone noticed how the FT8 people have moved in on the PSK31 portion of 17 meters, are we supposed to move down ?

Well, I am out bicycling and kayaking 4 months after my first knee replacement, so hope to be out snowshoeing 4 months after the next one!

Paula-  

Thanks for the offer.  Pretty sure I'll still need CN98 in the spring.  Good luck with the knee.  Let us know how you are doing.  Hope you are out kicking the soccer ball around before New Year.  (In the rain of course. December in Port Angeles!)

Barry -
Sorry she wouldn't go for it.  Worth a try (hi hi).

CN98 looks like a primo opportunity for a GridXpedition.  Lots of 070ers want that grid.  Lovely scenery, trees, trees and more trees, Norther Cascades National Park, and Mt Baker Ski Area.  I want to go...but no go, no more.

As my brother-in-law in Newfoundland would say: "Good On Ya David".  Sorry I missed you.  I have been mostly off the air this week due to Emily - that unusual west to east tropical storm and the accompanying long lasting lightning and thunder storms here in central Florida. 

Hope you had fun with the portable op.  Sounds like you have a great setup.  Plans for the next time?

I was on 20 meters during the day on Aug 1 1830Z to 2100Z from FM28 at Bethany Beach at the Delaware Army National Guard training base.  I made 4 contacts in FL, GA and CA.  I was hearing a lot of stations but not getting out to many.  I worked my FT857 off a solar charged LiFePO4 battery to a 20mtr lightweight dipole hoisted up my 16ft Buddipole mast. Used my Galaxy 7 Edge phone bluetoothed to a lightweight keyboard hooked through a Wolphilink adapter cable.  Pictures available if interested.  This has turned into my portable station for working from picnic tables and mountain tops.

Are either of you still on from Delaware in the evenings or did I miss the window?  I've been hunting a 40m DE contact for months now.

Looks like there about 10 or so small towns and lots of forests in CN98.  No wonder we don't hear any hams from there.

Rick: Not this year - another knee replacement coming up in September. But maybe next Spring I could take my IC7000 mobile and take a side trip to Concrete WA on my way to Bellingham to visit my daughter. That will get you CN98!

Not in the cards, but maybe Tom could help out.

Thanks for reminding me--I forgot about that. I'm still looking for hole 13 because my one QSO with that area (the wet grid BE05) was prior to the GOLF starting date.

Congrats Jim
Glad to help.

TU 4 the update Rick.
Today is in the log so will have to run it thru the chkr to make sure.
Oct18 may be tough as it is near my B'day es wife likes to surprise
me with mini trips.
May ask to stay home this year.

Big Congrats to Jim K5SP.  That was the last QSO he needed for 366!  Fine job.  

And Barry VB7150 - you are a trooper up there in your piece of Paradise.  If I'm not mistaken you just need tomorrow and then Oct. 18.

366 is doable!  It just takes determination, perserverance, and only a little bit of luck.

They may not count for DXCC but they still count for certain grid awards.

In fact, at least one award program (www.gapawards.com) has a special category for "wet" grids that don't contain any land.

P.S. For those that don't recognize GAPA, it's the renamed awards that were formerly known as TARA's grid and prefix awards (which actually, even longer ago, started out as PODXS and 070 awards).

I would like to see what they use. Any input you have would be appreciated.
I have access to a field out back from me. I've just not taken the time to
put any wires up at home. I also would like a portable one to use for

only sit a few feet above ground, a termination resistor at one end makes
them directional, some matching needs to be done(guess I'll have to check
