Don't know if I still do, but for many, many years I held the CQWW record for Oceania, single op, 15 meters, using my old call WB6EWH/VQ9, Tom Dixon, (cannot remember his call), set the record for 20 meters at the same time.   Used to be able to find them online but cannot seem to locate it at this time. 

We had a heck of a setup there on Diego Garcia at the time (1976), two complete Collins S-Line stations, two beams (one was a log periodic 6-30mhz on a 90 foot free standing tower). If we needed boosters had Henry 2K and Henry 3K linears.  (It was actually the MARS station of which I was the Chief Operator, but when not on Mars skeds, a heck of a lot of DX was accomplished.

The CQWW, SSB Contest, is the single most popular contest for HF that there is.

It starts at 0000 Z this evening.

Ur CQ Zone:

East Coast?...ur in cq zone 5

Middle of the US?...ur in cq zone 4

West Coast? Ur in cq zone 3

Alaska? Ur in cq zone 1

So my report to someone is 59 03. It’s that simple. If it’s a JA station, (V E R Y common from the left coast in every dx contest), my report to them is “go-que camo-she dozo”.

That’s “59 03 go ahead”

Work as many dx stations as you can hear! Believe me, you’ll hear DX that maybe you hadn’t heard before!

Since the advent of LotW, that’s how a lot of the guys will qsl to you.

But, I won the CQWW, 40m, Hi Power back in the late 70’s or early 80’s...I have to find the certificate...I received a shoe box full of cards over the next 90 days...

Work as many JA’s as possible! They love paper cards!...

Also, a tip: Sunday evening as we approach 0000Z, Monday...the end of the contest... It’s Monday morning in JA! All the contesters have gone to work. All except their Novice class operators! (Mostly kids) They have ssb privilages on some HF bands, with 25 watt max.

Thats how to clean out your cards at the bureau!

My experience is to send the bureau a few bucks. They prefer to choose the envelopes they use. A lot of dx stations have some crazy sized cards.

That’s it.

Got a nice stack of 32 QSLs from ARRL bureau this morning.  Went through and found 2 new band/countries for Challenge which puts me at 1414.  The usual bunch if DL/I/9A/G etc. but some needed answering... those who didn't check PSE or TNX   of gave no indication of a card wanted got nada ! (Hey, it's on my QRZ page !)

 

If you work DX on PSK or any other modes, you *need* to have envelopes on file with current name, call sign and address.  Last year I sent them a dozen envelopes with a "Forever" stamp on each envelope. Some bureaus will toss cards after a year and some will hang onto them.  After 16 years I retired from the ARRL Incoming Bureau... just old & tired .

 

Fun going through cards... one was funny and had a radio with "split" marked on both receivers and a " Mr. Potato Head"  figure in front of radio except it was a Banana   !    If you don't get puns, you probably won't get it .

 

Settling back for a weekend full of PSK31 QSOs ... I hope !

I got 38 cards recently, for my KK4CPS call, several of which were from 2013.

The receipt of the envelope prompted me to send a dozen envelopes to the bureau for my AK4MK call as well.  I don't think it's worthwhile to send any for my 6-wk held KW4VY call...

Bureau cards are fun - it's a surprise when you get the envelope, and several surprises when you open it!

Milt you really brought back the memories. I also won a few awards for Alabama section back in the 80`s when bands were so much better than now and oh was that fun getting on the air in contest weekends I use to operate a lot of them and it is great experience and great way to fill in your DXCC. Thanks for sharing Milt hope the younger guys will give it a go.
73 have fun and enjoy. Morris WA4MIT.

Re: Who is Closing In on Work The World Endorsement?

Rick - N7WE
 

Yes Jim, it does seem like a struggle at times!  But you are closer than you think.  You have already logged 1921 of the total 2246 required to do the whole thing.  You only need 13 As, 13 Is, and 8 Ns to complete Asia.  That will only leave United States and Africa to complete.  And you have made a big dent in both those.  Only 121 left out of 411 for United States an 170 left out of 441 for Africa.  

I run HRD software.  One tip that someone, can't remember who, passed on to me was to use SuperSweeper and then search and pounce.  SuperSweeper will show up to 60 decodes simultaneous.  I'm sure other software has similar multi-decode capability.  That sure made it a lot easier to watch the calls for that needed letter and then jump on them!

Keep on keepin' on!  You are very close!

I was also lucky to be semi-retired and home a lot of weekdays, but weekday DX wasn't as plentiful.
 
There will be times when finding letters was a problem; especially A' & N's and a few others... you'd be surprised how many countries have the letter A !
 
If anyone is after A suffixes I can schedule contacts..  have N9AVY  &  K9ATI so you get twice as many.  Be sure to read the rules as to how many time you can use same callsign.
 
It was fun and worked a lot of endorsements doing WTW without thinking about them. Am almost thinking about a second go at WTW ... maybe there can be a "double header"   sticker for that !?

Excellent. Honestly, I think the WtW is more impressive; to do both would be amazing.

Congratulations!

Re: W9SMR - Stan - Completes 366!

David - they're different types of awards. The 365/366/Clock and Calendar (which you're only 3 days away from! You already have the leap day and 24x7!) is an award of concerted effort at specific times and days. The WTW is a slower award more of sheer perseverance and TIFOR/BIC (Time In Front Of Radio/Butt In Chair) that, towards the end, you sort of "slog through" to get all the necessary calls.  They're both impressive in their own rights, for sure.

Good luck with your next 3 days! Those are 30OCTOBER, 8NOV, and 25NOV *UTC* just in case you weren't aware, though that seems pretty unlikely.

Be good, y'all, and keep up the PSK-31 contacts! :-)

Re: 80/160m Antenna

A half wave dipole at a ¼ wave  is better

 

radiation pattern is in the direction of where the low end is mounted

John, et al:

I love this idea for antenna, I'm gonna get one up once the rain stops.

Can someone pull out some extra class antenna theory and explain how this works?  Can you also use small words?  =p

Specifically: what is the radiation pattern?  How does the gain compare to a proper half wave dipole?

Thanks guys!

Barry & Byron,
If you follow the link http://www.ct1ffu.com/site/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=48&Itemid=18 you will see a commercially available version of this antenna.

Yes, coax from the balun to the rig via in my case LDG Kenwood tuner tunes to about 1.2. No counterpoise.

I am trying to picture this.

Is it coax from rig to balun.

Do you have a ground system for counterpoise.

 

I have lots of wire and can wind a 9:1 quick enuf.

May have time B4 the snow to try something.

I get good results 80/160 with an end fed antenna

9:1 Balun and 30m of wire. you can zig zag if you don't have enough straight line.

​Milt,


Depending on when in the 1930s he purchased that land, there were probably very few indeed who had the financial capacity to bid on that land, let alone to afford the follow-on construction.

Will have to try this.
It looks like the coax braid is the counterpoise and 
really does need the unun or coax choke at the shack.
