 That used to be a rule it is no longer one. the rule even said that you had to keep a call log for every CQ and if no answer put a line through it. Just an FYI VB station is in Canada so he's not regulated by the FCC anyway.

Well frustration hits again.

QRZ access has been spotty for a couple days. Also they have managed to lose 
my VB7150 page altogether, creating problems when contacts try to confirm my identity. 
This has been reported to QRZ support and it has been "Dispatch Ticket to HQ".
Yes I am a paid up supporter.

I had the pleasure of working a new, to me, member only to be told -

"I don't log any body not in Zed. Maybe you should fix the QRZ 
record for your call.  I am not an official observer."

I tried to explain I was OK but due to QRZ's issues he would not log the contact. Hope all 
Florida hams don't think that QRZ is the absolute definitive reference when it comes to 
determining station legitimacy.

Interesting. A few days ago, I noticed that my details & bio set up for W5MMW/VE3 were deleted.

I logged a ticket asking if I had done something wrong or broke a rule or something but was told that "there has never been a W5MMW/VE3 page." Despite all of the work I put into laying it out, uploading photos, etc: it was gone.

I had to recreate it last night. Hopefully it doesn't get bulk deleted again just like how it looks your VB7150 page also expereinced.

Yes QRZ used to let me have a separate page for each callsign so that I could provide pertinent info for the call.

Due to many circumstances beyond John's control and my control, we haven't gotten the current mailing out yet. OK, so some of the circumstances were within my control, but not all of them. :-P

We will combine the existing, late mailing with the September mailing.  The cut-off date for stickers to be included in this mailing will be 31 August, 2017.  The mailing will commence about mid-month in September.

I'm sorry that they mailing hasn't gone out already, but things have been really hectic for the both of us.  Keep an eye on your mailbox starting mid-September.

There's other exciting things afoot - stay tuned to your email!

Corvallis, OR - the predicted 'carmegedeon' for central Oregon did not occur.  

The solar eclipse at totality was just amazing!

Off now for a few days on the McKenzie River before returning to San Jose ...

Well I chose to travel 6 hours from Waterford WI to Waterloo, IL to experience the Great American eclipse and it was awesome..Dont miss the next one in 2024...But the ride home took a little longer, about 11 hours to return home as the freeways were gridlocked from St Louis to Bloomington.
What a mess. At any rate..missed the 8/21 QSO..so i'll have to wait another year.

Oh, Great APE Thrasher !!


With the pipeline you've burned to NE Indiana lately, you should have no trouble earning a 6 Band "Bwana" Certificate this year.


I know you already have an empty frame hanging on the shack wall for your 5th Annual APE Hunter Certificate.


We'll be on the lookout for you.
