Need a 'U' for my Spell All South American Countries Endorsement


Mike Besemer <mwbesemer@...>
 

I need one 'U' callsign to complete my SASAC.

In my log, I have AA9UF, CG9UN, K6UAS, KA8UNI, KC9UR, KJ6UF, N2UJN, W6U.

I'm off work until 2 January and I'd love to finish this one up. Any 'U's
who are reading this and can work a sked, please let me know. 20 and 40
meters are best for me, but I can do 10 - 160.

73,

Mike,

 

I appreciate it, but the ‘U’ must immediately follow the number in your callsign.  You’d be good for a ‘G’, but not a ‘U’. 

 

Either way, I’ll be looking for you!

2. Use the suffix of each station's callsign to collect letters to spell out the names of countries, states, provinces, or territories listed on the worksheets. In general the suffix letter is the first letter after the last number in a callsign (in the spirit of the Bingo and WOTMC endorsements).

Well, that sucks!!!    When I see use the suffix of a call , that usually means any letter in the suffix but I do see where it states ‘In general’  —   But the suffix means ‘The ending’  So, WA3RLJ the suffix is ‘RLJ’ —
In other organizations I’m in the suffix is ‘any’ letter after the number!!!

I've always Interpreted the suffix as the first letter after the numeral.  Thus, N9AVY  will only count as an "A" .  Of course with a call like KZ3T there is only one choice of a suffix. :-)

Maybe thus needs to be better defined in rules, but I guess there will always be those who look for shortcuts. (no offense)

I need one 'U' callsign to complete my SASAC.

Not trying to look for any shortcuts.  Just trying to be a little logical .

The meaning of ‘suffix’ is:

a letter or a group of letters added to the end of a word, etc. or append, especially as a suffix — that definition tells me it is all the letters after the number in a call sign.

When someone on the air asks you for your suffix, do you just give them the ‘A’  or do you give them
‘AVY’   -  With my old call I can remember and I have still seen people ask for the suffix of their call and they give them all the letters following the number.

There have been a number of 070 endorsements (and contests) based on "suffix", and they have always been defined and/or interpreted as the first letter after the last number in the callsign. In addition to BINGO and WOTMC (word of the month), there was MONA and HER CAT (2003, 070's first use of a suffix-based endorsement), WTW (ongoing), and the ERIN GO BRAGH bonus points in the St Patty's day contest.

Yes, it probably could (and should) be more carefully worded in all of the various places where it's used, but I think the club's intent to be consistent is clear.

P.S. The "in general" in the rules is to allow for some strange cases. JY1 and VB7150 are examples where this rule fails.

VB7150 breaks down as
VB = Canada
7 = Area 7 or BC
150 is my suffix and will expire end of year.
This is a spec ev call that must be purchased and
wud never be issued as a regular call so I think it should
be an excluded exception.

The rule fails in that there is no alphabetical suffix for either of those calls. JY1 did not even have a suffix. I think Barry says that 150 is the suffix, and that's a number. 

I'm not sure there's a reasonable, easy-to-implement rule to cover these calls, especially if it had to be coded into the awards checker. We could say that if there was no suffix, then it's a wild card, but that would be extremely difficult to code in the checker, as it would involve creating a new field to be evaluated. We could also say that if the suffix was a number, then it's the first letter of the number spelled out. But would Barry's VB7150 be an O (for one hundred fifty) or a C (for cent cinquante)? Would we have to spell the number in the country's official language? Suppose that language doesn't use the alphabet that the award is set up for (English)?

When I wrote that email, I struggled to come up with additional examples (beyond those two) and I couldn't come up with any. Frankly, I think they're rare enough that the current implementation (that if there are no letters in the suffix, then they don't count) isn't onerous.

Dan:

I'm curious as to what groups you were in that allowed you to use any letter/s in the suffix .  Was it 10-10  ???  The chapters had their own sets of rules and they varied from chapter to chapter on the whims of the CM.  If I remember correctly, one was only allowed to use one letter of the suffix, but that was because these paperchasers were only applicable to 10-10 members.

Now , I getting confused over all this suffix stuff.  I think PODXS rules for WTW are quite clear and I would assume those rules go for any other PODXS endorsements unless otherwise specified. 

But I may be wrong ..

Surely, there must be a W4 out there with a "U"suffix as in "U'all"

I need one 'U' callsign to complete my SASAC.

In my log, I have AA9UF, CG9UN, K6UAS, KA8UNI, KC9UR, KJ6UF, N2UJN, W6U.

I'm off work until 2 January and I'd love to finish this one up. Any 'U's
who are reading this and can work a sked, please let me know. 20 and 40
meters are best for me, but I can do 10 - 160.

Ok and that is not a problem and my bad for not really reading the rules, however, I read (and only saw) the ‘suffix’ and ‘assumed’ anything after the number.  I read the part about ‘generally. . .’ but that did not register with me since I already saw ‘suffix’ — If this all makes sense!!

There have been a number of 070 endorsements (and contests) based on "suffix", and they have always been defined and/or interpreted as the first letter after the last number in the callsign. In addition to BINGO and WOTMC (word of the month), there was MONA and HER CAT (2003, 070's first use of a suffix-based endorsement), WTW (ongoing), and the ERIN GO BRAGH bonus points in the St Patty's day contest.

Yes, it probably could (and should) be more carefully worded in all of the various places where it's used, but I think the club's intent to be consistent is clear.

P.S. The "in general" in the rules is to allow for some strange cases. JY1 and VB7150 are examples where this rule fails.

I've always Interpreted the suffix as the first letter after the numeral. Thus, N9AVY will only count as an "A" . Of course with a call like KZ3T there is only one choice of a suffix. :-)

Maybe thus needs to be better defined in rules, but I guess there will always be those who look for shortcuts. (no offense)

Well, that sucks!!! When I see use the suffix of a call , that usually means any letter in the suffix but I do see where it states ‘In general’ — But the suffix means ‘The ending’ So, WA3RLJ the suffix is ‘RLJ’ —
In other organizations I’m in the suffix is ‘any’ letter after the number!!!

Wow!!!

From the webpage:

2. Use the suffix of each station's callsign to collect letters to spell out the names of countries, states, provinces, or territories listed on the worksheets. In general the suffix letter is the first letter after the last number in a callsign (in the spirit of the Bingo and WOTMC endorsements).

Mike,

I appreciate it, but the ‘U’ must immediately follow the number in your callsign. You’d be good for a ‘G’, but not a ‘U’.

Either way, I’ll be looking for you!

73 es tnx,
