Thanks Bill.� I never thought to check what was happening CW or FT-8.� Must be getting old and senile.� But I can still remember my call - hi hi.� Been thinking about tweaks I could try on the antenna.� Might give a few of them a try today if the thunderstorms hold off and then give it a run again this evening.� Oh for about 10 acres of land with no HOA restrictions!� Not until horses fly I'm afraid.

Thanks to all who looked for me.  I think this antenna set up is deaf, deaf, deaf!  I saw Bill - N4GBK from Hertford NC, but he was in and out with not enough to qualify as a qso.  I did work Charles - KI4VMK with a strong 599 signal....but he is in Chiplley FL only about 260 miles NW of me.  Looks like I have further antenna work to do if I'm going to have any luck in the Great Pumpkin Contest.

 

Again - thanks to all who responded here on the reflector and everyone who looked for me.

Hello all - 
 
I hung a new wire this afternoon hoping to get on 160m.  53' endfed @ about 20 ft. oriented NE to SW. Not too hopeful, but it's all I can do at the moment.   I will be CQing on 1.807 +/- about 1000 at 0000 UTC tonight.  Would really appreciate a call if anyone sees me.  TU!

Sort of worked Rick.. His signal went up and down and we made it a QSO but not much more.  Saw both sides of his QSO with KI4VMK.  The band might improve a bit later in the evening but Rick should be able to put a few Qs in the log in the contest.

 

Happy Radio and 73,

I’ll look for you around 0000 UTC.  You’re about 600 miles.  My 160 meter experience is anything under about 800 miles is usually workable just about any night.
 
Also, purists might argue with me but I am usually running 70 watts or so on 160.  I have an IMD meter and my signal is good at that power level.  Also, not going to overload many receivers on 1807 as there is usually no one home.  The  2 or 3 dB signal improvement helps on the noisy band.  22 states so far but no west coast yet.  Maybe that will happen in the Great Pumpkin Contest!
 
See you soon.

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.
