Milt,

I will try again. I could not get it to show a link for some reason. Maybe because it is a part of a sign-up selection.

Will look again,

Love Bob, KK6KMU's suggestion to talk it up on the air.

73, HNY!!

The Ø7Ø Club PSKfest is just 1 week away -

 This is a 1 day, 24 hour event – Friday evening and Saturday in US.

Sprint Rules – work as many stations as possible in the allotted time using PSK31 mode.

Work each station once per band. (Same station, same band, is a dupe!)

Open to all licensed radio amateurs. Using 80M thru 10M (No WARC Bands)

For Rules and details, Click Here PSKfest RULES<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.podxs070.com%2Fo7o-club-sponsored-contests%2Fpskfest&amp;data=04%7C01%7C%7C677ef61e7e824e76d5cc08d9cc7a46fa%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637765647810008278%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&amp;sdata=Ewf49Yq4y47VTHvQC0j0gQWB3626tBG7LSilRbW2juo%3D&amp;reserved=0>

Exchange:  State/Province/Country (SPC)

Call: “CQ PSKFEST”

All entry logs must be received within 1 week after the event ends.

The PSKFest Uploader link will be activated for the Contest. See Rules.

With propagation possibly improving and 5 bands to choose from, you can optimize your luck. It is helpful to post your intentions to QSY on the Reflector.
Bob, KK6KMU, has set up a Triple Play Low Band Sprint CHAT GROUP on the Main Groups.io site. Subscribe to that for an active helping hand.
Also, be sure to use PSKReporter and to Spot calls seen. Under current propagation conditions, we need all the help we can get.

Last year there were 105 logs submitted, up from the 2020 total of 90 logs. Last year’s Top Dawg and 1st in High Power was Steve, VA3TPS  with 171 QSOs, 43 states and 8,203 points. We had a record 16 non-members competing and submitting logs. Several have since joined the 070.


Be sure to tell any and all to join the fun, submit their logs and join us as soon as possible.

Let’s see if we can find those open bands.
