YU1AO was EU winner in 1993 Phone. I never received a single note, or any
award, from anyone. They promissed nice trophy for Eu winner, but even my
emails to "the usual guys" resulted no replies. I was telling to myself -
OK, you are just a guy they don't like.... and now you puzzled me!

(What ever happened to the results for the 1998 Scandinavian Activity
Contest
? It seems as if they have been lost in some big Black Hole on the Internet.
None of the usual sites have them. Emails to the usual guys produce no
answers. Were they ever published ? If so, can someone tell me where to find
them ? Tim EI8IC)

Naw, "91" would be a great check.  Same with "99."  Just send
"NA" or "NN."  Then we could start the thread on cut numbers
again.  73

Hey why didn't I think of that before!  I'm one of those "lucky 55ers"
and I could have been taking even more advantage of it by sending "EE"
all these years...  :-)

Prior to operating in the Armadillo Run years back I thought anyone who
stuck an HF rig in their car probably also wore a pocket protector and
thought working A station in Canada was rare DX...i.e. "get a life".

When I followed the Texans as they covered the humongous state of Texas -
with about four times as many counties as Florida, I had a ball - they were
cracker jack CW ops the likes of K5LZO and K5ZD and the anticipation of
waiting for them to cross a county line and the ensuing QRQ pileups was an
absolute blast!  I had a scribbled all over a photocopied list of the Texas
counties which was pencilled out as the weekend went on - mind you this was
still paper logging days!

Several years ago when K1TO landed in Florida a spark was lit to have the
Florida Contest Group sponsor the ailing Florida QSO Party...at a historic
meeting of the FCG we brainstormed the framework for the FQP - there were
ensuing sessions in internet chat rooms (tnx Ron) where the pros and cons of
other state QSO Parties and our proposed rules evolved.

This past weekend I truly felt like the FQP had come of age.  N4KM and I
covered 35 counties and hardly had any dead airtime - think we had once or
twice all weekend long where we called CQ 4 consecutive times without a
response...when the dust settled and I added things up we had 1955 QSOs
gross...of course when you are in a state along with K1TO you learn that
being second is the norm!  K1TO and N4TO had 2195 QSOs from 44 counties...

This is more QSOs than we make in SS, or the NAQP...perhaps there is
something to this.

I would like to to formally thank everyone who made the effort to get on and
work us this past weekend - I am still exhausted but on a post-contest
high...from a QSO Party!
AVERAGING A HUNDRED AN HOUR WILL DO THAT TO YOU!

Thanks again, guys...as a fellow FCG member said to me this morning - "this
goes down as one of my top ten ham radio experiences" - without a doubt!

We have found the FQP to be a big aide in our membership recruitment and
also a good way to expose "Joe Ham" to contesintg...nothing like starting
off being rare, eh?

I hope to get to a rig this weekend to help support the fledgling New
England QSO Party - perhaps the state QSO Party is our method to keep new
blood entering into contesting...which is still the funnest thing in Ham
Radio!

Our club has a number of members that contribute to the FQPs
success...volunteers who check the logs, colunteers who key in paper logs,
certicate makers, plaque orderers, county coordinators...it is a club
effort - another healthy thing!

The message below is typical of ones that have been circulating regarding
the FQP, it is fun chasing the mobiles - not unlike a clean sweep is in SS!

73,

Jim, K4OJ

We all know how humble and reserved Jim is.  He won't tell you, but I will:
He failed to mention that he was the ONLY operator to work ALL 255 Texas
counties in that Armadillo Run -- 254 real counties plus a special county
proclaimed by the Texas Governor as Armadillo County (it followed the Texas
Independence Trail).

For that achievement, Texas DX Society flew Jim to Houston for the
ComVention where he was presented with his award (and got to meet all of
us).

Now.  I look back on the past weekend with regret yet again.  Due to other
commitments away from radios, I never got a chance to get on a play in the
FQP.  But, I swear I will never be FQP-less again!

73,

Message-ID: <3CD1A2E6.8BEDE8BB@tcac.net>

Have any contesters tried the new FS-2 foot switch?  My FS-1 just went
belly up after 10 years of faithful service.  It would be simple to fix
as the microswitch just needs replacing.  But it may be time to try
something new.

DX Contest Certificate TODAY.  Just 3 years after the contest!

Now how about the 1993, 1994, and 1995 paper?

KM3T reports receiving the plaque for 1998 (I think) win in the WPX SSB
contest from my station using his callsign.

So, I guess Steve is working on catching up with them, or he is tired of

Subject: [CQ-Contest] The KLEZ virus and contesters
Message-ID: <016e01c1f296$e85fe760$3f502104@vz.dsl.genuity.net>

For several weeks, I have been receiving emails telling me that my email
address is sending out virus-laden emails.  In fact, my computer is not
sending them, but another computer infected with a virus, likely belonging
to a contester, is sending out emails and using email addresses from all
over that computer to 'spoof' many email addresses, including mine as the
"from" address.  Many of the addresses I see being spoofed belong to other
contesters.  Also, the subject lines of the messages include things like "VA
QSO PARTY" which tells me it has to be from a contester's computer.

Everyone should be running a virus protection program on their computers.
If you are not, you are likely to be infected already by one or more of
these email based viruses.  Please, please obtain a virus scanner/monitor
program for your computer.  There are many available and some are even free.
Part of the responsible way to run a "connected" computer is having virus
protection, and updating it frequently with the data that enables it to
continue to protect your computer.  These updates are often called
"signature files".

In addition to running and properly maintaining a virus protection program,
a utility is available that can assist in detecting and repairing the
infection from the KLEZ virus(as well as some others).

The program is called "Kleztool.com" and you can download it from the
contesting.com website in the file libraries at this address:

http://www.contesting.com/libraries/Utilities

After you unzip the program,  issue the following command at the dos window
prompt:
(Don't shut down Windows.)

KLEZTOOL /scanfiles

It will scan your entire hard drive and will report if it finds any infected
files.

Here's the technical stuff on what it does:

Hi Gang

The upcoming topic for the CTT&T column is for little pistols.  I would
appreciate your comments on this subject. Please reply directly and thanks
for your help. Also be sure your call sign is in you email and please get
it to me by May 6. Thanks again!

Topic for July 2002 

Best weapons for little pistols

Little pistols, what are your best contest weapons? Do you have an antenna
that really gets out on one band? Is it an operating technique? Maybe there
is a time and band for certain contests where you are really effective at
making QSOs. What contests do you feel you can be most effective in?

Thanks & 73 - Gary, W9XT

I'm experiencing the same problem.  See:

  http://www.ng3k.com/virusalert.html

I don't think most of this is the result of virus 
infections, but rather malicious E-mail address 
forgery (or "spoofing" as it's commonly called).  E-
mail spoofing is all to easy to do and insofar as I 
have been able to determine, there's very little that 
can be done to stop it.  And the malevolent hackers 
out there have become much more creative in their use 
of the Subject: field.

I'm seen many other ham E-mail addresses spoofed as 
well and I receive between 5 and 10 of these messages 
a day, on average.

So everyone should be very careful with incoming E-
mails.  Don't assume that because an E-mail 
**appears** to come from someone you know and trust 
that it does not contain a virus.

For my part, I have my mail reader set to NOT 
download any message greater than 20Kb in size.  I 
use a freeware product called "Popcorn" to look at 
the message headers of large messages while they're 
still on the incoming mailspool.  To date, I have 
seen very few large inbound messages that were 
anything other than malicious viruses.

Bill/NG3K

I've had a hard time with the commercially avaiable footswitches.

I change my body position a lot during a contest.

Constantly trying to keep track of where the footswitch is in relation to my
new foot position was a hassle.

Years ago, I took a 3' long piano hinge, a couple of springs, a momentary
switch and two pieces of 36"x6"x1" (LWD) lumber and made my own.  Works
great.

After my FS-1 went bad I pcikup a sewing machine foot swtich.
I works great. Less resistance to push, better angle for foot, wider, more
stable on floor (moves less and never over turns) and as a bonus  it
actually has two switches (which I have yet to figure a use for) a right
and left.
Less than $5 at fleamarket.

The logging program still works.  Enter your call and you will get the list of 
your QSOs.
I think they mean that they don't want anyone sending them e-mails about 
specific log entries.

They may have good reason.  4 of my contacts with them are not in the log.  I 
know other people who say their QSOs are also not in the log. I think they have 
a lot of logging errors and are getting some heat about it.  I guess you just 
have to work some DXpeditions three times on each band and mode to be sure of 
getting in their log.

Message-ID: <20020503174113.33390.qmail@web10505.mail.yahoo.com>

 Sounds like K4OJ has caught the mobile QSO party bug and joined the
likes of K8MR, K8CC, W1NN and others who will be making their annual
treks during MQP,OQP,FQP,PQP etc....  I caught the bug a few years ago
when I did the MQP the first time with K9TM. Since then I have made my
annual treks during April and August for the MQP and OQP. It's going to
be a little tougher now that I have moved to GA but the GQP has pretty
good activity so look for me then. FL is only about 250 miles away from
the new QTH so maybe I will make it down south an join the fun down
there in 2003???

 For those of you who are station-less ( or don't have a real one like
me) this is the perfect fix for curing the contesting blues....

        WPX guest operators/calls sometimes create problems which may
differ for plaques versus certificates since they are taken care of by
two different entities for WPX contests.  CQ Magazine mails out all WPX
certificates and they send them automatically only to the HOLDER of the
call...not the operator.  If you think you are due a certificate for
a WPX contest using a different call than your own, first check that
the holder of that call did not already receive it. 

        N8BJQ takes care of WPX plaques and he will do whatever you ask.  
I asked him to send my plaque directly to me but I suspect he sends them 
to the call holder unless instructed otherwise.  For anyone who has 
problems, contact Steve directly at  n8bjq@erinet.com  since he is not
on 
this reflector.  I've always found him to be very responsive.

I suffered KLEZ attack few weeks ago. Unfortunately, it was a week after
setting new comp, and no antivirus program installed at that time.

The mail was received from a known sender, within email ham list. However,
his address title was little different than usual, but it didn;t ring any
bells to me. This email came to me on March 5th at about 2300. KLEZ attacked
at 0000 on March 6th (as he promissed :-)) and I noticed funny noises
between my root disk and remote one, as they made love... I shut them down
and waited for  the morning explanation from F6GNZ who warned us that Klez
was there.

Results = all my JPG, DOC, XLS and TXT files were gonne.

Now I use NAV2002 regularly updated, Netscape rather than Microsoft, and
still registered one KLez attempt few days ago.

So, better be very carefull.

I use the same switch- the second one is hooked to a second radio- SO2R
the cheap way!

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Foot switches
Message-ID: <002101c1f30f$183574a0$0100a8c0@joe>

Hi all,

I noted with interest Richard's query about the FS2 footswitch and Dale's
piano man solution. Interesting.

I noticed the FS2 has the hinge at the heel. Although it seems to make
sense, it's always seemed more fatiguing to my legs to have the switch in
that position than to simply use my toes since the other way requires moving
muscles all the way up to the knee.

Has anyone ever experimented with non-footswitch, non-VOX alternatives? As a
touch typist, the heel of my hand never strays too far from the keyboard but
like Dale, I've been frustrated by having to reposition the footswitch in
the middle of a run.

Perhaps it's worth trying something that can serve both as an ergonomic tool
(to keep the heel of your hand in the right position) and as a PTT device. I
hate VOX. Or perhaps a shoe like some bank tellers wear that contains a
switch to set off the holdup alarm. Not sure if those are even in use
anymore.

Perhaps a pressure sensor on the back of the operating chair. LBTT, as it
were. (Lean Back To Talk.) I often tend to lean back when CQing anyway.

Then again, there's always the clapper. Clap once, PTT on, clap twice, PTT
off!

OK, that last one was TIC (tongue in cheek). Also, anyone ever come up with
a useful function for additional switches on the fs? Mine (a Wollensack
dicating machine unit from Fair Radio Sales) has the main body of the
footswitch as one (in my case, PTT) switch and two switches at each side. It
seems neat, but it also seems that any additional functions would have to be
closely related to the act of PTTing, since you're likely to do that by
mistake anyway when you go for the other switches.

Any thoughts?

KM3T reports receiving the plaque for 1998 (I think) win in the WPX SSB
contest from my station using his callsign.

So, I guess Steve is working on catching up with them, or he is tired of

I've been using foot switches for over forty years.
I always have just picked them up at swapfests, etc.
I don't know what the Heil switch costs, but I'll bet I've
bought mine a lot cheaper.
They are usually made from a plain old spst microswitch.
I saw a hint that came from N4MM a lot of years ago about a knee switch,
and I built one...hard job that. I velcro'd one of my foot switches to the 
inside part of
my desk. If I don't wanna use my foot, I just move my knee a bit.
Also, I always have at least 2 foot switches on the floor, in case I want 
to move my feet around.
Another thing. A friend of mine used an old J-38 key screwed to a board. 
Samo-samo.

I had forgot all about it-- my mother and grandmother, both professional
seamstresses, both had the "knee" switches on their commercial sewing machines.

I think the problem is that people don't hear the DX and only get a couple
of letters back and think that they have a QSO   There are still some who
can't copy their own call on CW
Tlhey are the ones who are sending on top of everyone,

The logging program still works.  Enter your call and you will get the list
of your QSOs.
I think they mean that they don't want anyone sending them e-mails about
specific log entries.

They may have good reason.  4 of my contacts with them are not in the log.
I know other people who say their QSOs are also not in the log. I think they
have a lot of logging errors and are getting some heat about it.  I guess
you just have to work some DXpeditions three times on each band and mode to
be sure of getting in their log.

Message-ID: <20020504.014055.-1346983.5.n6ki@juno.com>

Dale,

        I just replaced a very comfortable, durable and ergonomically
comfortable
footswith that lasted me over 10+  years of contesting.
        After considering many switches including the Heil FS-2,
here's one you should consider and why I chose it.

Linemaster  Model Gem-V2
www.linemaster.com

860 974-1000

Circular - Easy to hit from all angles

Perfect touch - you can lightly rest your foot on edge of it
                           and not false trigger but then a light
additional amount of additional pressure
                           keys it and no "cramped" or "tired" foot as
the hours wane on

Great Weight and Non Skid corrugated base  - Will not move around too
easily
so no worry about it not staying in position.

Nice appearance with chrome ringed edge and easy hit circular top target
area.

I expect it will easily last 10+ years for heavy contest use.

You can purchase with or without cable. I found the supplied cable listed
on teh web
page to be too heavy and cumbersome so I installed my own thinner and
very flexible
cable and saved another $6 on the price.

The Gem-V2 will cost you just under $30 including shipping/handling.

Note: Since they normally have a $100 minimum, I requested my switch
as a sample for 60 day evaluation and had it mailed to me at my work
address.
That way you avoid the $100 minimum 

You may also want to check with your contest buddies or club members and 
order enough to meet the $100 minimum order. 

I have no pecuniary interest in Linemaster  Co. Products

73, Dennis N6KI

The CQ Worldwide Contest has a provision under the club scoring that
DXpedition scores are PERCENTAGED to the number of club members on the
Dxpedition.

I cannot find such wording in the Rules for the WPX contest.

Does WPX allow the same percentaged (toward club scores) scores for
different club members within the group?

Y'all won't believe this , but.....I lost all the files for FQP in TRLog!
While I only made 105 contacts, it seems that was a fairly good 
score for about 4 hours work and the shape the bands were in
at VE7QO. 

I was going to be smart and make a Cabrillo file, got as far as the 
log.cbr file, remembered that I had forgotten to set the offset time to
7 hours, so logs were in PDT for about 60, then in correct GMT for
 the rest. So I said, oh yeah!..... POST has a facility to rectify this
so I blithely deleted Log.cbr and proceeded to do the POST routine
.
The answer came back, which said, no contacts in log.dat!!!! 
Yup! that was correct....somehow, not only the log.dat file 
information but also the restart.bin got deleted...ugh!! @#!^&*)X

Sorry gang, no way I can recover the stuff, where-ever it went. Not 
a thing in Recycle bin and the old DOS commands 'undelete' don't
work in fancy Win98SE!  So I can't take the SOABLP winner's
place in BC and maybe even in Canada, having looked at all
the scores  drat it!!! 73.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] E-QSL
Message-ID: <4.2.2.20020505234127.00a45b70@mail.verizon.net>

After a long time without looking, I finally decided to come up and look at 
the CQ-Contest Archives to see if other contesters were being sent the Klez 
virus through the "back door" as I was.  After receiving some 
two-hundred-twenty-one virus attachments since March 20, attached to 
messages from Mail Administrators informing me that messages I had never 
sent could for one reason or another not be delivered to the addressees I 
never sent messages to, I am frankly beginning to think that this joke is 
getting a bit long in the tooth.

I did find a couple of posts about that subject, but what I really found 
interesting were the extensive posts about e-qsl'ing, including the 
excellent posts by KR1G and WC1M describing some of what is actually, 
rather than theoretically, going on in the design of LoTW.

I just went to eQSL.cc and checked the list of eQSLs waiting for me on that 
site.  I didn't make an exact count but I can see that eQSLs from several 
hundred stations await me there.

Last month I celebrated 50 continuous years as a licensed Radio 
Amateur.  During all those years I have been continuously active under one 
callsign or another.  I have always enjoyed QSLing very much. I gladly 
answer all QSLs that come to me; direct QSLs are answered direct whether or 
not SASE is included, and bureau cards are answered via the Bureau.  I love 
collecting QSLs and one wall of my home study is completely taken up with 
steel file drawers containing the QSLs I have received in alphabetical order.

Let me first of all submit that eQSL.cc accomplishes several fine goals: 
(1) It allows people who don't like QSLing to feel that they have 
nevertheless not impeded a fellow radio amateur in his/her quest for 
awards, (2) allows Radio Amateurs in countries where the national radio 
societies run bureaus which will not forward cards to non-members to get 
around that block by receiving confirmations through eQSL.cc if they don't 
want to be members of their national societies for whatever reason, (3) 
allows contest stations to QSL pre-emptively without overloading the QSL 
bureau system with unwanted cards, and (4) allows people to QSL without 
going to the undeniable expense of confirming QSOs by snail mail, a 
prohibitive expense for many of our fellow hams, particularly those of 
limited means living in rare DXCC entities.

Nevertheless, after sincerely attempting to use the eQSL.cc system without 
compromising my own personal QSLing standards, I have come to the 
conclusion that the eQSL.cc system is designed PRIMARILY for people who 
find QSLing an unpleasant chore, and NOT for people like me who love QSLing 
in the traditional way.

While I have learned that in the computer age there are many computer 
programs out there that do not permit me to do things exactly as I would 
like, and that the computer age is a time in which one constantly makes 
compromises with program writers who don't see things exactly the way a 
particular user does, I nevertheless strongly feel that in order to fully 
enjoy the use of any computer program, the user needs to feel that he, the 
user, and NOT the computer program he is using, is in control.

My inviolable personal standards for QSLing, finely honed over more than 50 
years of experience as an SWL and licensed Radio Amateur, are as follows:

1) Every new non-lower-48 callsign I work from K3ZO is sent an attractive 
gold-leaf QSL specially printed for me in Thailand, my XYL Somporn's 
country of birth.

2) Any other QSO is confirmed only after the following conditions have been 
met:

a) I have in my hand a printed QSL confirming the contact in question from 
the requesting station.

b) I have consulted my own log and have confirmed that the QSO in question 
took place.  Where there is disagreement about the time or date of QSO, I 
will search my log for a QSO with the requesting station on the band and 
mode in question, and if such a QSO exists I will confirm that QSO in my reply.

c) In a situation where it appears that I got the other station's call 
wrong, I will exercise my own judgment about whether it seems that in fact 
it was the requesting station that did indeed work me, and will act 
accordingly.

eQSL.cc makes it difficult for me to adhere to the above principles in the 
following ways:

1) In asking me to upload my entire log before I can use the system, it 
makes it possible for someone to receive a confirmation satisfactory to 
them without providing me a confirmation satisfactory to me.

2) The visual QSL samples provided by eQSL.cc are certainly attractive and 
are definitely satisfactory to me in fulfilling the need to add a printed 
card to my files of QSLs, whether or not they count for particular 
awards.  However, the process of downloading and printing out a QSL from 
eQSL.cc is much more time-consuming than, for example, handling a bunch of 
cards just received from the Bureau.  For every card downloaded and printed 
out from eQSL.cc, I estimate I can answer 20 bureau QSLs in the same time 
frame.

Therefore I am sadly moved to announce that if anyone needs a confirmation 
from me for a QSO we have had, it will be necessary to send me a real QSL 
by whatever means.  The way eQSL.cc is presently configured, it is simply 
too cumbersome for me to use efficiently and still adhere to my own 
personal QSLing standards.

73, Fred, K3ZO

TR Log lets you use a footswitch for a variety of functions.  you could 
wire the main switch to the ptt line of the rig, and then use the secondary 
switch for any of those, including a dupe check, starting a CQ, moving the 
rig frequency to the next higher unworked station on the bandmap, swapping 
radios, etc.

Try You nearest Singer Sewing machine centre or look for an old
Dictaphone machine foot peddle
 both are very durable
have two switch contacts spaced well enough so that  even big feet
can handle 'em .... re-wire and le voila there it is.
Have had one for about 15/16 years never had a problem with it

Mine is actually a "thigh" switch.  I bought a package of the Radio Shack,
large, momentary button switches and mounted them in small "Rubbermaid" cups
(the wife wouldn't let me use the good Tupperware stuff").

After attaching a cord with proper mating plug to interface with my radio's
PTT circuit, I mounted the switch assembly to the inside of the knee well on
the desk using the wife's hot glue gun.  Boy, those craft tools sure come in
handy.

I have had to take the assembly apart two times, a couple of years apart, to
clean the contacts.  A better quality switch would probably last a lot
longer.

I have a foot switch made in a like manner, in a "Rubbermaid" dish mounted
on a sloped piece of 1" x 4" board, with a piece of 2" x 4" under the rear
to lift the switch to a comfortable angle and a piece of 2" x 4" at the
front to rest the foot on until the PTT action is required.  Looks horrible
but works great.

Good luck de Milt, N5IA

Here is a free utility for Windows, DOS, and Linux:
    
     http://www.qsl.net/ka5wss/logconv/

It will read CT7, CT8, and CT9 format log files, and will output to ADIF.
It knows about certain contests and takes advantage of that knowledge 
is making better ADIF files.

Quack's
I have used VOX for years, however my old foot sw was a piece of 1 x 6 with
a small micro sw attached to one side and a thin piece of fiberglass sheet
,( mine was and old devider for a notebook) attached with thumb tacks.
Very soft touch only took a toe to actuate and easy to move around under the
operating position.

Message-ID: <004401c1f52d$f94274a0$3a1038d4@wally>

Hi Fellow Contesters,

We're going to TA3 land (Asiatic Turkey) for WPX CW after few weeks.

According to changes in the rules of WPX we are now allowed to have a 
multiplier station which has to use separate Nos.
Could anyone tell us how to make this possible with CT software ?
I have sent a message to Steve N8BJQ, but no answer untill now.
We want to understand how to make our PC network for multi single with separate 
numbering for multiplier station.

Thanks in advance for the input.

CT has had this ability for a long time, and it works on old versions (verified
with Version 5 and later).

Go to www.k1ea.com and follow the ADIF link on the left-hand side.

Kelly, that is the downside to doing footswitches that way with the hinge on
the 'near side'. I don't think it would take much to turn the footswitch
around, attach a piece of wood to the 'armature' piece such that it was just
off the floor and thereby relieve your feet of having to have the toes well
elevated when not transmitting.

I have heard of someone who was using a desk with the normal legwell (??
you know, where your knees/legs/feet extend under the desktop, but the sides
are close in to your legs due to drawers, etc.).  He had rigged a couple of
homebrew 'footswitches' to mount on the inside sides of the legwell so that
he could use his left or right knee against the appropriate side to key the
radio.  It didn't take much in the way of movement or pressure to activate
the switch.   Sounded pretty neat to me, since your knees are almost always
at the same height and about the same depth into the legwell throughout most
of the contest....and you're not doing much with them anyway.

I guess you haven't been there in a while. They have gone back to the 
unsecure meaningless display that lets you give a meaningless confirmation 
to a meaningless e-qsl. Any integrity that was there is gone again.

I guess I will still upload logs now & then, but only for those that think 
they mean something. Really looking forward to LOTW.

Radio Shack carries at least two varieties in stock.  They are sold as

cheap - around $10 or so each.

So...a month ago I was the beggar, desperately trying to find a shower stall
in the Crowne Plaza where I could hang my hat.  Now I have a Crowne Plaza
room, and the fellow who was to share it with me has cancelled.  (I don't
think it was because he discovered who his roommate was going to be, but who
knows?)  And now comes the question...does anybody want to share and help
defray expenses?  Last I heard, the price for this room was $122/night, plus
taxes, so it sounds like a shared room would be in the vicinity of
$70/night.  I do know that even though this room was supposed to be a
double, what was actually issued was a single...meaning I'll have to get a
roll-away bed if somebody wants to share with me.  If you're interested,
please give me a shout soon.  I'm out of CA, headed east, come Monday.

These can be purchased new, or can frequently be found used at flea markets.

I bought one of each in Dayton last year - in new condition.

Hello  All

I recently went through the foot switch deal and had a mis matched
bunch of hamfeast specials.  I had front hinge and rear hinge.  I sat
down and used them both and decided on the rear hinge.  I found it was
less fatiguing.

W3BP one of my ops suggested a plate to keep the from moving around we
cut an plate that is about 5" X 9 1/2"  Half an old Rack Pannel.  They
work very well.

I found the switches from McMaster Carr and had them in 1 day for a
cost of less than $11 each.

Related to all this foot-switch talk, doncha just hate it when your f/s wanders
way back under the operating position and you lose it, and have to interrupt
your run to find it?

K0CKB provided me with a solution used by seamstresses.  It's call "Pedal
Sta-II", and is a piece of that heavy plastic used under office chairs, with a
piece of Velcro(tm) -- another piece of Velcro gets glued to the bottom of your
f/s, and it never moves again.  Get it at a fabric or sewing store.  You can see
a picture at http://shop.store.yahoo.com/hancockfabricstore/hcn00641.html.

In the mail today was an 8 by 11 envelope containing the results of the 
2001 Russia DX contest (March 2001). Included was a certificate for 
W8CAR for my 9th place US finish, a stapled booklet with results and 
rules for 2002. All this is contained in a plastic sleeve for 
protection-no folds in the certificate-all the way from Russia!

This has become one of my favorite contests because of the activity 
level and as an 'old timer' I have never gotten over the fun of working 
Russia and oblasts. Other contest sponsors should take note at how this 
contest is growing and how it is being promoted. I have received e-mail 
from them with my results, my UBN and now I have hard copy of same plus 
they have an excellent web site.

The Russian Dx Contest committee is doing it right and makes me want to 
participate again and again and again!

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Russian DX contest results and comments
References: <3CD7D030.5000005@buckeye-express.com>

I agree...I also got my 2001 Certificate (NON FOLDED!!) for top CW SO in
Canada a few weeks ago and was very impressed with the package they sent
out...Very well done, and as Dan says, it makes you want to participate in
next year's contest...It's one of my favourite contests of the year...

Also received a small booklet from the 2001 Polish DX Contest Committee
yesterday (No certificate, thanks to a certain Ontario ham!! hi hi) which
is very well done...All the results, stats etc...

This all follows a very well done package from the Florida QSO Contest
Committee a few weeks ago as well for 2001...Again, the certificate was
NON-FOLDED...Very well done...

Then, there's the 2001 CQ WPX SSB Certificate I received two weeks
ago...Every one I have ever received had two folds in it...Not complaining,
I'm happy to have received them, I know there is tons of work in organizing
that one, but I would gladly pay the extra cost of a large envelope and the
extra postage to get it to me in one piece...

73, Scott VE1OP

Or...if you can't bring yourself to go into a fabric or sewing store, you
can also get velcro with adhesive backing at Home Depot.

A piece of masonite or 1/4" plywood works well and if you have a 
scrap around is cheaper. I rubber cemented pieces of old bicycle 
inner tube under the corners to help keep it from sliding around . 
Stick-on rubber feet should work as well. My several year old Radio 
Shack footswitch is attached with double sided foam tape. It was 
intended for hands free playback of a dictaphone, but no longer 
appears in the catalog.

Another fix for this is...not quite such a fixed position is to use the
stuff that you use on stair treads. It's kinda like a tape, adhesive on one 
side and
gritty on the other.  This might not be advisable on a wood floor, but it does
woek well on garage(cement) floors.

Another thing this excellent for the wandering key(keyer paddle) syndrome.

I'm not sure what it is called, but the non-slip stuff they use to keep 
cutting boards
from slipping in the kitchen works for both also. It is a rubbery web like 
stuff. Extremely
good for the keyer paddles.

Hi all,

Just a reminder that the Curacao PJ2T superstation is available for the
IARU contest -- the CCC club group will NOT be using it for this particular
contest. Details are at http://asgard.kent.edu/ccc . Three towers, 14
yagis, three full KW stations, Pentiums and Ethernet. Two bedrooms, four
beds, two full baths, 100 feet of oceanfront. It's pretty, but it's HOT+++.

Message-ID: <5.1.0.14.2.20020507140530.054721b0@pop.abs.adelphia.net>

I just got called by the Crowne Plaza, offering me a room off the waiting 
list from last June's magical first half-hour.  I took it, and as a result 
now have a reservation available, if anyone wants it, at the Doubletree 
Downtown.  For those who don't know, the Doubletree is about 5 minutes walk 
from the CP.  Anyhow, the Doubletree reservation is cancellable up till 3 
days beforehand, but I'm going to cancel it on Friday if I haven't heard 
from anyone who wants it.

It is interesting that rooms at the CP should be freeing up so late in the 
game, and the confirmation number the woman gave me was 95, which she said 
indicated I was the 95th person on the waiting list to accept an offer of a 
room.  Makes you wonder whether somebody with an "in" had held a biiig 
block they just released.  She professed not to know.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] SCC manipulators!
Message-ID: <005701c1f5f8$9b2fa510$5efc4dc1@home>




I am still asking SCC-Slovenia Contest Club ( EUHFC comittee) to explain their 
decision about my score and my further contest entry in EUHFC. Till today 
nothing happened from my previous cq-contest entry. I think this just shows 
that some world very known and popular s5 hams do not care about what is right 
or wrong , just to lead their own, "socialistic" and non democratic (as they 
were tought) way and making decisions in the way: who thinks like us is ours 
who is not is our enemy! Some SCC top members are really trying to put as much 
hams off the air as it is possible and with no good  reason! If there is one, 
they would probably public it, but where there is no they have their mouth 
closed!
Maybe some should consider who to enter to the contest hall of fame! Maybe the 
last word should be shame in this case afcourse!

I like ham radio and I am one of the few youth hams in s5 who operate and put a 
lot of effort to ham radio and none of youth hams in s5 is a member of the 
worlds "NO 1 Club " SCC ( As they printed out on their T-shirt!)...just think 
why ???from the year 1999 to 2002 from 200 members to less than 70 with family 
members inclusive!
I just do not like that some make advantage of us by pretence of promoting us 
to the "unknown world" .
But I am one the few who care and do not like to have mouth closed on money 
loundry things and that is the reason of the treatments of SCC as the hit back 
to mee as the ex president of Supervising comitee of Slovenia contest club.

Either way the world is growing and standing on youth people, but in SCC there 
are no any, because youth people in s5 are grown in democracy and they like to 
treat fair and without colour fear!


Thanks again to reading this!

I tried a switch in the mike line, but that sucked big time.  I 
have a couple of foot switches here made from sewing machine foot
pedals that work very well.  I also have a one made from a pedal
that used to be on a transcription machine.  It has 2 switches on
pedal.  One for forward and one for reverse.  It works good to
key 2 radios.  Left side keys left radio and right side the right
radio.  Works for me.  73

Contesting Friends!

Once again, I'm imploring you to provide inputs to "Contesting on a Budget" 
for the July/August issue.

Our topic is "rolling your own".  What things do you find you can build more 
economically (or build better) than you can buy?  I'm interested in 
everything from interfaces, to patch cords, to antennas, tuners, amplifiers, 
accessories, etc.

What is your next big homebrew project?  I know there are a lot of competent 
builders out there, tell me about your present and future projects, even that 
secret switching box that you swore you'd never tell anyone about!

As always, a big QRO thanks for your inputs, you make this column fun to 
write!

Hello all

Last year during CQ WW SSB at GZ7V we experienced some
unexpected inter-station QRM on one of the stations which used
an Icom IC-775DSP. The QRM was noticeable early on, then seemed
to disappear, with no apparent cause.  This posting to the UK
Six Metre Group web-site was forwarded by DL1EJA and 
GM4YXI (thanks) :-

Anyone know if this applies to the 775 ?   If so, this could have been
a cause of our inter-station QRM.
Also, I was puzzled by the action of the front-end 'Preamp/Att' switch
on the 775 - the 'attenuator' (6/12/18dB) did not seem to work in the
way I would have expected, certainly not in the same way as the
attenuator on my 1000MP. (The 775 belongs to Keith GM4YXI and
I've only ever used it for short spells during contests, so I may have 
a wrong impression)

Eric,

   Here's the info from my original post.
This is the best constructed and ergonomically perfect switch I have
ever seen in my 39 years of operating and contesting!

73, Dennis N6KI
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
     
Linemaster  Model Gem-V2
www.linemaster.com
 
860 974-1000
 
Circular - Easy to hit from all angles
 
Perfect touch - you can lightly rest your foot on edge of it
                           and not false trigger but then a light
additional amount of additional pressure
                           keys it and no "cramped" or "tired" foot as
the hours wane on
 
Great Weight and Non Skid corrugated base  - Will not move around too
easily
so no worry about it not staying in position.
 
Nice appearance with chrome ringed edge and easy hit circular top target
area.
 
I expect it will easily last 10+ years for heavy contest use.
 
You can purchase with or without cable. I found the supplied cable listed
on teh web
page to be too heavy and cumbersome so I installed my own thinner and
very flexible
cable and saved another $6 on the price.
 
The Gem-V2 will cost you just under $30 including shipping/handling.
 
Note: Since they normally have a $100 minimum, I requested my switch
as a sample for 60 day evaluation and had it mailed to me at my work
address.
That way you avoid the $100 minimum 
 
You may also want to check with your contest buddies or club members and 
order enough to meet the $100 minimum order. 
 
I have no pecuniary interest in Linemaster  Co. Products

Message-ID: <004c01c1f7e3$d0712f40$0300a8c0@Lab>

I'd like to hear from some of you guys with the monster antennas.  I've got
about 3 extra acres here that could hold a monster.  Yes, it would be cool
to have a system that reaches to 200' or so, but would it play well?

I've never played a radio with an HF antenna >70 feet or so.  What should I
expect at 160'?  Oh what the heck, why not 300'?  Seriously, I'm looking at
a new tower and am unsure about the "bang for the buck" on a big boy tower.

My gut tells me that a high tower is a handicap on SS and any other domestic
contest.  Long haul DX may be different but is it going to make a difference
in my score in ARRL DX, CQWW, etc.?

I'd be interested in any and all informed responses.

Message-ID: <3CDBC75C.3460@erols.com>

The gang (as usual!) came through!

The one I found that met my needs was referred from K1PX (TNX!)

http://www.naco.org/counties/queries/city_srch.cfm

This allows you to enter a County name OR a city name and it will search 
for you.
Additionally, you can get a listing of ALL cities within a county as well 
as other data.
My kind of site. Not a lot of folderol to navigate through. Get in.. do 
the work.
get out. Nice site! Run by National Assoc. Of Counties.

LA8OM advised for zipcode lookups try

http://zipfind.net/   (enter city and state)
http://zipinfo.com/search/zipcode.htm

Hope that helps others too!

Thanks to all the folks who replied!

I did a search of "U.S. Counties" on www.Google.com and came up with the 
National Assocation of Counties.  This site has just about anything you could 
want to know about counties in the U.S, including a good search engine.  Here 
is the ref:

http://www.naco.org/counties/counties/index.cfm

BTW, I live and breathe by Google!

yes, it can help.  But you have to think stacks, not just one high
antenna.  A perfect example is my 4 ele 10m at 180'.  It opens 10m to
africa and europe a half hour before the lower antennas, but after that
the stack at 30'/60'/90' fixed at europe is much better most of the
time.  Being able to rotate the bottom ones toward stateside is also a
big help for domestic tests where the 180' high one is only good for
some slightly better ground wave qso's within new england.

You would be better to think about several towers.  The key to HF contesting
success is to have a decent signal on all bands plus some diversity.  The
easiest way to get loud on multiple bands is monobanders.  You can only put
so many on one tower and to gain diversity, it is better to have them on
separate towers with independent rotators.

If you have unlimited money and 3 acres, I would start with something like
this:

140' tower with 3-ele full sized 40 with sidemount stack on 10m
100' tower with 20m stack
100' tower with 15m stack
Wires for everything else.

Notice, it is not the height of the tower but how many of them that counts!
Try to orient them so the antennas are side to side when beaming your most
used direction (i.e. don't make it so one antenna has to beam through
another for a prime direction).

Randy, K5ZD

Has anyone seriously looked at the patterns which result 
when the lower antenna in a stack is pointed in a different
direction than the upper?  If so, have any of these studies
been published?

Take a look at Tim (K3LR) Duffy's antenna set up.  He has a VERY
successful contest station.  The URL is: http://www.k3lr.net/

The best antenna pictures are under the Photos 2000 tab.  And, if
I remember correctly, Tim designed and built most of the antennas
himself.

Well, I don't have a 'monster tower', being mine are 150', and 120', and
60'... And I have never had anything taller, so take my comments in that
perspective...  I do have acreage so I do have some experience with
Beverages, etc...
Check the archives for Tom Raush's posting on topband and 300 foot towers
for a perspective regarding topband...

The big contest stations will tell you that you need more than one antenna
for each band, at different heights...  Arrival angles can be fickle...
They also will tell you that there is no such thing as too tall of an
antenna for dx or contesting... Many of the stacked antenna guys have
discovered that the highest antenna in the stack is the best 97.943% of the
time <or some such figure>...
I would not recommend a 300 foot tower due to cost, FAA lighting
regulations, etc... The bang for the buck is not there, in my opinion...

In general, a Rohn 45 tower in the 150' to 180' range will make you very
competitive as far as signal into other parts of the world on the HF
bands...  A pair of 150-180 footers, properly spaced to hold a wire beam for
80 meters into europe (say)  will make you you king of the hill in that
direction....
There are lots of choices here... To simplify, let me tell you how I would
spend YOUR money if I were doing it right now, aiming at bang for  the buck
<remember this criteria is not the killer stack>......

A 150-180 foot tower - you pick the height... I would compromise at 16
sections and put a Force 12, 40-10 antenna on top, and M2/Orion rotor...
I would put a 20-15-10 Tribander at 13 sections fixed on Europe... I'm
partial to a KT36XA, <or clone> my self ...
I would put another Tribander at 10 sections fixed on South America...
And I would put a shorty, tribander on a ring rotor, or gate arm, at 7
sections for US contests and for multiplier hunting...
Then I would get as far from this tower as room allows and put up 13
sections of Rohn 25 on an insulator... This will be the 160 transmit
antenna, base fed...
Then I would haunt the swaps and scrap yards and get enough TV tower
sections (American Steel, etc.) to make up a 4 square for 80 meters...
And install Beverages for 160/80...
That's how I would spend YOUR money, today...

  Ford - careful.  I understand there is a push by some to create a new
category for people who use monster antennas as opposed to those use
something less.  ;-)

 "Comparing a station with a beam and a dipole is very comparable to a
station with
6 monobanders.  In each case, only one antenna gets used at a time."

   In all seriousness, I would second the comments of K1TTT & K5ZD.  There
is more to their success than just their geographic location.  If you can
afford a couple of towers with monoband yagis, you'll be ahead of the game.
I would also suggest picking up a copy of the ARRL Antenna Book.  There's
some great analysis software and other propagation/antenna data.  You can
look at the data for W0 land and get a good idea of what antennas and
heights are best suited for your location based on the geographical areas
you want to target.  Good luck!

Try the US Post Office site on the web.
There's a lookup facility which is used to determine proper zip code, and it
also provides the County.
Caution: it's accurate mostly, but may show the county of the post office
that services the address, which might possibly be different.

Please respond directly to me at ei4hq@qsl.net I'll post summary results on 
this mailgroup later.

DECISION TIME...
My new QTH is currently being built - below is the station planned for it after 
much research. The only remaining gap is to decide on a rig...


I'm down to trying to decide between 4 rigs as my new HF transceiver (to 
replace a very well used & loved TS450SAT). I'd classify myself as a casual 
contester from home (I do more serious contesting from the club QTH where the 
rig is likely to see some use also - we currently use TS850s, TS950s and 
FT1000Ds), primarily CW, and run a fairly ok home QTH station: 

10m, 15m &20m:   A3S
40m: Vertical, dipole and delta loop 
80m Vertical, dipole & beverage
I computer log and everything is wired to the PC (rig, antenna switching, 
rotator etc.)
I run barefoot though a shack heater is on the shopping list.

My rig choice (having gone through all the options/personal preferences, budget 
etc.etc. etc.) are

a) ICOM IC756proII
b) Yaesu FT1000MP mkV Field
c) ICOM IC7400 (746pro stateside)
d) Yaesu FT920

What's your vote? Please only choose from the above 4... Remember please 
respond directly to ei4hq@qsl.net

Message-ID: <3CDD13B0.D3CAD53C@gte.net>

Someone asked me for help regarding computer logging the recent FQP ...
and them said "I don't know if it makes a diff. but I'm on a MAC."

My question ... does anyone know of a contest logging program for a MAC
that I could recommend to him?  (I know ... I'll also suggest to him to
find a cheap 2/386 that he could dedicate to a DOS program!)

Message-ID: <5.1.0.14.2.20020511173057.05455410@pop.abs.adelphia.net>

When I told my suspicious former-meeting-planner spouse that I'd gotten a 
room at the Crowne Plaza off the waiting, her immediate response was, "Of 
course, they held a block of rooms till the end because they knew they 
could sell them then at rack rate."

So now I'm curious.  They quoted me a price last week of $149 plus tax for 
a single with king-sized bed.  What did other people pay for a comparable 
room back in June, in the first wave of reservations?

Message-ID: <3CDEC8D4.2887E801@snet.net>

For all you guys who have been wondering if I will be there this year
with CW interfaces, I WILL!    Here are the details:

W1WEF  CW Interfaces are compatible with any of the popular contest
logging programs.  Interfaces are neatly packaged inside the D connector
that plugs into a computer LPT or COM port.  W1WEF Interfaces are used
by winning contesters  and DXers around the world! The following models
are available:

LPT Standard       Plugs into your LPT port. A cable is required to run
from the RCA jack on the Interface to the rig key          .
jack.                                       $23. Plus $3. S&H
(Available also for  9 pin or 25 pin COM port)

PTT       Plugs into your LPT port. One cable is required to connect
from the Interface to your key jack as above, and a
second  cable  connects from an in-line RCA on the interface to your
rig?s PTT connector. PTT control ensures that your amplifier relay is
pulled in before the computer starts sending code,  thus preventing ?hot
switching? the amplifier, and
preventing the first dit from being dropped. (this occurs in some
amplifiers that do not switch fast enough)
                                               $39 plus $3 S&H

PADDLE      Includes same features as PTT and in addition provides an
in-line stereo connector into which you can plug your paddle and
eliminate the need for a separate keyer. TR and NA software support
Paddle input. The paddle can interact directly with the contest program,
a feature not possible with a separate keyer.
                                              $49 plus  $3   S&H

See me in Dayton, or order from W1WEF, Jack Schuster, 408 Thompson St,
Glastonbury, CT 06033
(Interfaces for Com ports and  tube rigs are also  also available
ask
for details) w1wef@arrl.net

Subject: [CQ-Contest] AlfaSpid  Antenna Rotators
Message-ID: <050601c1fa32$4627b240$94cea1c6@ve6jy>


If you are thinking about a new installation or replacing an existing unit,
please check this out at Booth 205. I know rotors are always a major problem
and expense at any contest station, so we are pleased to present to you a
economical
yet sturdy rotator with the accuracy you need for swinging those razor sharp
long boom yagis.
 I have had several on test here over the winter and they have been trouble
free. One is turning a full size 3 element 40m yagi  - the same one that
trashed
my "big" Wilson 1000 rotor last year.

 If you are not coming to Dayton check out
the information at  http://alfaradio.ca/alfaspid.html . There should be an
updated FAQ there shortly. I'm told that might be tomorrow, as we had a hard
drive
crash somewhere.... If you have any specific questions you may email
me directly, but after Tuesday I'll be unavailable as we're enroute to
Dayton then.  We will also be around the Crowne Plaza hospitality areas on
Fri and Saturday evenings.

 As a special promotion to introduce this product to North America, everyone
that purchases one before May 21st will go in a draw to win back the price
of their rotor. If you are not coming to Dayton you still can get into the
draw by ordering thru the phone numbers listed on our web page. The rotor is
priced at $530US.  We will have a demo unit at Dayton (if the airlines
cooperate!) and will be taking orders for units that will be shipped when we
return home. Shipping costs are approximately US $25 to anywhere in the USA.

 The AlfaSpid rotor is a heavy duty antenna rotor in the same general class
as the HyGain TailTwister or the Yaesu G-1000/2800  but with advanced
digital features yet priced well under these and other competing rotors.
Mechanical complexity is reduced to a minimum by utilizing a simple double
worm drive system.  Position readout is sensed with a magnetic reed switch.
The controller features digital readout and a full complement of features.
Controller features may be upgraded in the future with a plug in ROM board.

Rotating torque is in the 1000 to over 3000 lb-inch range, with between 12
and 24 volts to the motor. At 24 volts I measured 3240 lb-inches (366 newton
meters)  This is significantly more than any rotor in the same price range
and even higher than other rotors costing nearly twice as much (Yaesu 2800
or Orion 2800)  Check out the rotor comparison chart at:
http://www.arraysolutions.com/Products/prosistelrotortable.htm  and then
compare prices.  Our rating for braking torque is 14,000 lb-inches or 1582
newton meters.

Rotor Features:

-Low voltage/ high torque DC gear head motor
-Rotating torque/speed:   1400 lb-in at 12v (120 secs) to 3240 lb-in at 24v
(60 secs),
-Braking torque: 14,000 lb in
-Quiet and powerful self braking action with double worm drive reduction
-Real steel housing and hardened final worm drive - not soft pot metal or
cast aluminum
-Uses inexpensive 4 conductor cable
-Sealed reed switch sensor technology for reliable all weather readout
-1 degree positioning accuracy - tight tolerances for minimal play
- Rated for large loads even when mounted outside the tower
-Designed for simple mounting to pipe mast  (2.6" lower, 2.1" upper)
-Adapters easily made to mate with HyGain or other bolt patterns
-Coax can pass thru center of rotor - prevents cable damage

Controller Features:

-Full selection of manual, automatic, scanning  and programmable modes
-Full manual available on line at:  http://alfaradio.ca/
-Digital readout to 1 degree accuracy
-Large easy to read soft green LEDs with flip down front panel cover
-Computer interface ability included (WriteLog, Mix W2 and others)
-Optional "mouse" style control with 6 user programmable presets
-Low voltage DC operation from any 12 volt source (typically 2-5 amps)
-Ideal for camping, dx'peditions, VHF/UHF rovering, etc.
-Simple optional adapter to allow use on VERY long and/or thin cable runs
-Can be zeroed at any position to allow for installation inaccuracy or mast
slippage
-Generous over-travel in either direction +-180 degrees with electronic
limits
-small front panel to simplify stacking several units, takes up less space

OK OK I've had all the warnings I should need but I still didn't get around
to buying a ticket for the contest dinner!

I don't know if there are any left available from the outlets but it's too
late to have one posted to Cyprus anyway.

So.........Does anyone have a spare ticket to sell to me at Dayton or will I
have to sit on my own in a darkened hospitality suite while you who have
heeded the warnings enjoy all the fun?

No better than I deserve I hear you say!

Help!

Back in the 70's I thought it was real cool to have a call sign with my initials
in the suffix.

Since then I have been increasingly concerned that I have a horrible call for CW
contests, due to the large number of dits in the suffix.

Just examined my LCR for last November ARRL SS contest.  I found that 28
stations busted my callsign in their log, and in _EVERY_ case they dropped one
or more 'dits', getting calls like K0SB, K0HD, or K0SD.  Since I use CT to key
my transmitter, the busts can't be attributed to sending errors.

Moral of the story?  Get a call with a lack of dits in the suffix.
Unfortunately, all the zero-district calls with suffixes like TT, MM, OO, TO,
OT, TM, MT, MO are already taken!

That's the price you're paying for having the call with your initials.

First of all, let me thank contest branch of the ARRL (Thanks, Don!!!) for
giving us a possibility to review our (and not only ours) mistakes in the
SS's.

Here are just few extractions from my "UBN":

K0DI: VE3UZ is a busted call.  The correct call is VA3UZ.

WJ0M: VE3UZ is a busted call.  The correct call is VA3UZ.

W3EKT: VE3UZ is a busted call.  The correct call is VA3UZ.

N8IE: VE3UZ is a busted call.  The correct call is VA3UZ.

K1KO: VE3UZ is a busted call.  The correct call is VA3UZ.

WO2N: VE3UZ is a busted call.  The correct call is VA3UZ.

and so on...


I think it'll take ages for people to get used to VA-prefix.
I've got enough...
So I just decided to set free poor Dave, VE3UZ and changed my call.
Hasta La Vista, VA3UZ! (Though it's kind of sad to lose UZ suffix...)

Hans,
I too have been thinking about my callsign and the "H" in the
suffix being incorrectly copied during contests, a few things
come to mind:

If you know your CW computer keying is not chopping off the 1st dit
of the "H" in your suffix, and that you see a pattern in how others
have copied you incorrectly in the UBN reports, then it's a copy
error on their end. (obviously)
One thing I do is send my call 2x when I'm either CQ'ing or S&P'ing
and listen really carefully for the H when they answer me, if they
send something else, I send my call twice when it's my turn to
send.  There's no excuse, however for busted calls when the copy
is good.

A few other things (less seriously)

Always run 1.5kW during CW contests to be as loud as you can.

Try to win contests so more people know you and will remember
your callsign.

look for your callsign spotted on the DX cluster as busted, you'd
be surprised how many log an incorrect callsigns based upon
busted spots.

lastly, become OK with your callsign.  It's a nice one.
Cheers,

'73 Dan N0HF

On the other hand, be careful trying to optimize your call by maximizing the
dah's in your suffix, hi. That's what I got, and sending this in CW tests is
no fun, too. Might reduce the error-rate, however, it takes a lot of time to
send the call even if you go QRQ ;-)

So I have a dilemma.  Right now with the shack on the hill, I disconnect the

don't get damage.  One day I would like to have some amount of remote

Message-ID: <190.6fb9567.2a1272ba@aol.com>

Once again I've stirred a hornet's nest.  Lemme state my case and then shut 
up.

First, my objection to the lengthy commercial message hit two nerves. First 
is my sensitivity to spam (unsolicited commercial emails). I counted 34 of 
them as I logged on this morning. If I want to read commercials I will log 
onto eham (which I do frequently) and look over the newest stuff.

Second, the contest reflector (IMHO) is an extension of our on-the-air 
communication forum. Commercials are not acceptable on-the-air, so I PRESUMED 
they were not in good taste on the reflector. I pay for an ad in NCJ to 
advertise my wares and never discuss them on the air or on a reflector.

Finally, I don't know how anyone can take my comments as disrespect to K1KI. 
Tom is an old friend who does yeoman work keeping the reflector as on-point 
as possible.

I guess we don't have a completely shared vision of what this reflector is 
for. I thought it was contesting. Sorry.

Tom, K5RC

I disagree with K3LR.  There are already too many ways to bombard us
involuntarily with commercial advertisements.  The AlfaSpid Rotator people
should apologize to the reflector users, make a donation to the reflector
operators, and leave some flyers in the Miami Room (with FRC/NCC's

I think that we're all over-sensitive to this issue.

It's certainly nothing that we should be taking sides on, nor should there
need be this many messages discussing it, and I apologize for prolonging the
pain.

Nonetheless, I think a single product announcement message is certainly
appropriate here.  There is no FCC restriction on commercial messages here
like there is for on the air communication.

In my opinion, as long as this does not become a habit, an occasional
announcement of a new product that is of interest to this audience is OK.  A
brief message with a link to the full announcement elsewhere would be better
as the reader would be able to choose to go look if they wanted to.

For you vendors, as K5RC mentioned, eHam.net is a suitable venue for such
Press Releases.

Being relatively new to the contesting world I really didn't have an opinion
when the ARRL botched (IMO) the handling of the Removal/Relocation of
Contest Scores etc from QST's pages earlier this year. However, after seeing
the wealth of information available and the flexibility of retrieving it
from the Web, I have to say thanks to the Dan and all of those who
contributed to the development and testing of the new way of presenting the
results. Also so much easier to have my UB...err LCR reports available
without having to email Dan for them. 

Hmm, more information, quicker results, sort able stats? And the concern of
losing line scores in QST was what again???

Since he is using computer keying, why not simply slow the speed slightly
for the H, with an extra dit length, pause before and after the H...
Obviously a lot of guys got his computer perfect CW right... Some did not...
Guess who should lose points for the busted Q's, and who should not... <to

He, obviously, should listen critically to what he is actually sending in

Interesting to see a couple of negative comments about the AlfaSpid Antenna 
Rotator pre-Dayton announcement (but not others...).    

The (somewhat-out-of-date) FAQ for the CQ-Contest mailing list says that 
advertising is OK (as long as it is approved in advance).
http://www.contesting.com/FAQ/cq-contest

In this case VE6JY contacted the cq-contest list administrators well in advance 
(3 months) to make sure it was OK.    Personally, I think Don/VE6JY is doing 
all the right things - and I assume his product(s) are top-notch as well.   I 
hope some of you will take a look at it at Dayton and report back what you 
think on CQ-Contest.

For those saying they want no advertising, I suppose that means no announcement 
of the Contest dinner or Contest forum at Dayton, no announcement of the 
Florida/Baltic/Indiana/Italian/NewEngland/VHF QSO parties, no messages from 
N6TR about TR software, or K1EA about CT, or  N1ND about ARRL contests.     I 
guess my point is that the line may be hard to draw, and everyone may have a 
slightly different view of where it should be - if there is one at all.

The practical solution has been to allow announcements(advertising) in 
moderation.  As long as it done once in a while (not every day or week or 
month), is from someone who is already a list member, and represents something 
that would be of real interest to contesters, it seems reasonable to me.   
Believe me, some messages with announcements have not made it past the approval 
process.   

Like K7LXC suggested, I think there is room for more - I know K5RC sells some 
quality masts, for example, and there are others on the list who make or sell 
good products as well.   A product sold by a contester that I know and who has 
been a participant in CQ-Contest discussions automatically has my attention.   
I like to support people who have something in common with me.

28 folks out of over a thousand screwed up the  either the "H" or the "B" (or
both).  Sorry, but playing games with timing would likely cause a LOT more
problems.


> He, obviously, should listen critically to what he is actually sending in

I set my delay so that there is no drop out during sending the exchange -- there
is no leading (or trailing) dit chopping.

Dits are simply bad news when you have seven dits and one dah.  They get lost in
the noise.  Goofy timing tricks would likely be more of a challenge to copy.

Purely anecdotal, and maybe someone closer to the sitation can remind me of
how the story really goes:

I heard a story about some ops watching a thunderstorm approaching the old
W7RM on the bluff.  I guess it was a really spectacular storm.  As it blew
over W7RM, the storm quit kablamming, and after it passed W7RM the
kablamming resumed.  The conclusion was that all the metal in the air at
W7RM dissipated all the charge in the immediate vicinity.

Someone stop me if this is nothing more than an urban legend.

Hey Hans:
Did you lose those 28 QSOs or did they?
How does the ARRL penalize for that, I honestly dont know.
How can you be held responsible for others inability to copy CW?
You shouldnt lose any points. Am I correct?
de KN5H



Back in the 70's I thought it was real cool to have a call sign with my initials
in the suffix.

Since then I have been increasingly concerned that I have a horrible call for CW
contests, due to the large number of dits in the suffix.

Just examined my LCR for last November ARRL SS contest.  I found that 28
stations busted my callsign in their log, and in _EVERY_ case they dropped one
or more 'dits', getting calls like K0SB, K0HD, or K0SD.  Since I use CT to key
my transmitter, the busts can't be attributed to sending errors.

Moral of the story?  Get a call with a lack of dits in the suffix.
Unfortunately, all the zero-district calls with suffixes like TT, MM, OO, TO,
OT, TM, MT, MO are already taken!

This question got me thinking.  The SS is/was unique in that it awarded one
point for receiving the exchange, and one point for sending it.  It seems like
there should never be 2 point penalties in SS except for NIL -- if one part of
the exchange is busted, that point is lost, but not both.  Just my opinion.

This information (on how the "other guy" busts your QSO is provided to 
you really as a "service".  It's good to see how other guys break your 
QSOs.  

To answer your question, generally one does NOT lose QSO points or get 
otherwise penalized for others' mistakes.  However, in some cases - say 
the other guy busts more than one character - some log-checking 
software, at least currently, will not find a match.  So if I work 
WA1AAA and WA1AAA logs me as N3MG (1 error), then I will get the QSO 
and WA1AAA will lose it.  But, if WA1AAA logs me as N3NG (2 errors) I 
quite possibly get a NIL and lose the QSO.  And it's quite possible 
that WA1AAA will not get dinged at all as long as the call he entered 
(in this example, N3NG) is considered a valid one.  So it does pay to 
be sure the other guy "gets it right".

Please note that software changes all the time and I suspect (hope) 
that this log-checking software "loophole" will get fixed sooner or 
later.  Also contests have their own software and 
different "penalties":  CQWW one loses busted QSOs plus a 3X penalty, 
ARRLDX I think you just lose the busted QSO.

To contesting friends coming to Dayton - especially those driving or
will have an auto in Dayton.

Forecast is for rain on Thursday and Friday.  This past weekend we had
an extreme amount of rain the ground is very saturated.  I still have
water standing the back yard.  I would suggest avoiding any grass
parking area around the Hamvention site.  For several dollars you can
park at the Salem Mall, just west a bit from the Hamvention site and
ride a shuttle bus.

For anyone staying East of I75 near the Dayton Mall (south of Dayton),
you can expect some traffic delays especially around rush hour.  A
bridge that was used by locals to cross I75 just South of State Route
725 was taken down a few days ago.  This has put a lot of extra pressure
on SR 725 (and 741).  There could be 4 or more cycles of the traffic
lights at 725/741 and they are long.  Plan extra time.  An alternate for
those going to or from East of the Dayton Mall is to use I675 to get
from/to I75.

Not a legend at all, but the wrong cause.  The Rushmeister just stood out
there, arms folded, glowering at the storm without saying a word.  It didn't
DARE strike his towers.

Maybe I really heard the story from John and I am confused?  Does ANYbody

I'd refer you to the manual for Super Duper by EI5DI. SD allows you modify the 
keying characteristics to the extent that you can effectively emphasise certain 
parts of your call. I'm sure other programs (including CT 'tho I can't remember 
offhand), that use serial/parallel keying, also enable you do this.

For ages (I'm licenced 12+ years) my call has been regularly busted and copied 
as EI4SQ instead of the correct EI4HQ. A HUGE reduction in erreonous copies 
occurred when I introduced a somewhat longer delay after the last dit i.e. 
before commencing the Q

E as normal
I as normal 4 as normal
H <added delay>
Q as normal

This added delay need only be small and it seems to give the brain just that 
fraction longer to answer the question "...was that an S, a H or a 5?" 
Obviously the results are empirical but it certainly seems to have helped 
significantly reduce busted copies for me.

As an aside I occasionally get a misfortunate op. on the other side of a QSO 
who gets totally in knots with my call. It seems to be one of those thats honky 
dory as long as you don't stop and start thinking about it ;o) 

I wonder if theres any research into this phenomenon - are some character 
combinations genuinely easier than others?

I have heard these sorts of anecdotal accounts (including John's) from
time-to-time. I wonder if all the tall towers are somehow increasing the
capacitance between the cloud and the ground. Based on the relationship
Q = CV, the earth-to-ground potential V would drop given a fixed charge
in the cloud, if the cloud to ground capacitance were suddenly increased.
Perhaps this is too much of an oversimplification, but it does seem to me
like a plausible explanation for these anecodotal observations. What say
folks?

I wonder if this could be measured by current sensors placed around the
various towers in big installations like these?

Perhaps it was simply a case that his intense
amount of RF being radiated over a period of time
simply introduced so many ionized particles into
the ether that it effectively cancelled out
whatever charge difference may have been in the
area between the ground and the clouds.
Therefore.. his area was neutral and no need for
a spark gap discharge (lightning) to occur.

Or else.. he radiated so much RF that the area
around his QTH was rendered charge neutral which
made it a very effective insulator which the
charge value of the lightning could not jump.
Ergo - no ability to discharge so he's safe.

This is a real rythym breaker for me (especially when tired...).  I'd be

This is THE way to go! Unless you can figure out how to park in the vendor 
area.
However:
DO NOT wait till the last minute to leave the Hamvention. You will spend a 
LONG time waiting for a bus. Up until a half hour before closing you just 
walk out of Hara and away you go.

Hi Folks

This is a little more than amateur towers but I'll pass on an interesting
tid-bit regarding power-lines. I was born at and was first on the air in the
City of Port Arthur, Ontario, one of twin cities, situated on Thunder Bay.
The Bay which is almost square, about 20 miles on a side, is cut off from
Lake Superior by a rock formation called the Sleeping Giant which forms the
eastern shore of the bay. The name was given originally by the Ojibways
because of the forific natural lightning and thunder storms that would come
from the west, get trapped in the bay and often stay for days. When
electricity came, tower lines were built which came from the Hydro
generating stations several miles west of the cities and split to service
paper mills to the south and north of the cities.

Immediately after this was done, the pattern of thunder storms changed
dramatically. When I was first on the air I was very interested in where the
storms were going. Aren't we all. One could see the storms coming up from
the west, flatten into a wall of activity and then vear off either north or
south, following this fence around the populated area. I never had a hit in
the several years I operated there, whereas I've had as many as 3 hits in
one summer on this hill.

There never has been the spectacular displays that gave Thunder Bay its name
since we fenced it off.

Incidentally, while working for the Hydro-electric company one summer, I was
in a distribution station during the approach of such a storm. It was awe
inspiring to watch meters calibrated in thousands of Amps jumping wildly
around as Mother Nature played with the lines. The coup de grace came when
lightning struck the generating station 19 miles to the west as I was
looking out the window. One generator was completely destroyed in a flash
reminiscent of a nuclear explosion!

A little off topic perhaps but there certainly is interaction when steel and
copper are stuck up into Her Domain.

Dunno if the story is true or not, but '7RM was just a puny four ~45m tower
station after the rebuild following the big storm of '77.

But combined with the heavy metal from next-door-neighbor '6RR, it isn't
too hard of a stretch to think that a passing storm might be somewhat
shunted to ground from all that metal connected to ground sticking up
above the tree line (which was very obvious from kilometers away as one
drove up to Foul Weather Bluff).

The wind showed little mercy to their wonderful stations.  Falling trees were
what brought Rush's towers down by taking out the guys & I distinctly
remember being up there one weekend where we sat in his house & watched
the neighbor's 3-el 40 shed its tips from its perch atop some 60-odd meters of
55G.

Both experiences certain to bring a tear to the eye.

Message-ID: <066e01c1fc71$142a3920$520346a6@davef>

Well with the "dit dit dit" series of egrams on the reflector
I will offer my comments after having callsigns ending
in HS and KK ... for too many decades  ....

Studying the issue I concluded that the best callsign
would be the shortest one that did not end in either 
a letter with all dits, a letter with ending in double dits or 
a single dah.  That eliminates E I S H D L Z and T as
the final letter of a CW callsign ...

Shortest is a relative term ... the prefix is often chosen
first and the number of the prefix is probably the
most constant choice by a given hamateur.   So,
shortest is then applied to what part of the call is
left over ....

A PERFECT  or SMOOTH call is one in which the ending element of
one letter is the opposite of the beginning element of
the next letter.  Such calls FLOW very smoothly for the
most part and are quite easy to copy .and send. ...

Thus the smooth prefixes are ...

W 1 2 3 4 5
N 6 7 8 9 0
K 1 2 3 4 5
xA 1 2 3 4 5
xB 6 7 8 9 0
... and so forth.

Some of the perfect/smooth calls are ....

K1AR
K1RO  
(BTW, the best phoneynetic letters are R and O,
they don't require phonetics !)
K5MA
W1AF
W1AW
K1RC
W1EM
K2UFT
W2RQ
N2CG
NX3J
NQ4I
K4JA
N0FB
N6NT
VA3IX
VE9DX
NG7M
NC7X
N6BB
N7CC
K4SB
etc etc
etc etc
etc etc

You want a SMOOTH / PERFECT
callsign if you can get it .....

... just a comment folks ....

Hi Hans, et al

Not really.  People kept busting the "H" in the middle of my call
time after time when operating at a fast clip.  I use TRLog and
started slowing the "H" down in the call and the errors just
about went away.  I think that if nothing else, it gets peoples

yes, E I S H all bite on CW as far as potential for copying errors - just got 
done looking at my SS log analysis on the ARRL web site, had made some of tham 
errors myself - hats off to the ARRL for following through on this stuff - it 
is very good - yes, there are still accuracy issues but details is enhanced!

Overcoming this is the secret....it was easier in the time of the bug when 
there was more fist in signing ones call....with K1EA, K8CC or N6TR signing a 
lot of our calls they all kinda sound the same!  There are some slight 
alterations of sending methodology allowed in the computer software programs 
out there...including pauses and or speed changes...purists say this is heracy 
- good code is good code and should not be bastardized by speed ups or slow 
downs, etc....I wholeheartedly disagree!  Guys who had unique fists before 
computers were recognized - of course some of it was negative like K3JH who got 
tired of having his call copied wrong and sent K3J5.

Go back not long ago - my favorite CW calls included N4AR's old call of 
K4GSU....he would send it with a pause after the four and then run the rest 
together

K4  GSU
 
I never had a problem copying that....he timed the length of that pause just 
right to allow the brain to reset for copy of the balance...

Guys with longer calls also have traditionally been able to send them faster 
because it seems our minds process them ok without question...as in G3FXB, F X 
B all being 4 part letters.

At high speeds since the mind tends to lag - unless you're a mutrant like K1TO, 
et al....dots are easier to screw up - face it we get confused.  

When it came time to upgrade our club call - I selected K4NNN rather than a 1X2 
because the available one by twos coming up were ALL E I S H ridden...the only 
copying problems with that callsign tend to be sometimes guys think it is K4NN 
since some is clicking along QRQ and I guess they think they must be a one by 
two!

Note also that a call can be TOO short - leaving the listener waiting for the 
rest....like E or EE suffixes...you are thinking - there has to be more to that 
call!

We have hashed over the pros and cons of dots dashses and how to pick a vanity 
call many times on this reflector...I recommend anyone actually program their 
computer with a given call before opting to select it - kind of like trial and 
error....it may seem wierd visually but what counts is how it sounds....and 
anymore that means as sent by your software!  Run it in a simulator 
program...try it - HOW DOES IT SOUND!

Sorry for the long post - will be missing Dayton this year and have to unload 
some hammy talk without the usual fix!

Have to second Tom's experience.

I have borrowed the call NV4X from a local club a couple of times.
Slowing down the "V" on CW, using TR's features, really dropped the
number of repeats/mistakes on the call.

Not a speculation, a proven result.

Message-ID: <20020516.093136.-425813.0.john-k1rc@juno.com>

Another (CW) tip for the people who have calls that dont flow
as smooth as they want;

Send your c/s at different speeds and find out what speed(s)
(+/- a couple of WPM) where you have a minimum of repeats
required from the other stn. 

With my call (K1RC) my best range is about 28-35wpm.
Anything faster and it sounds more like K1AC or K1RK etc,
especially well into a test where everyone is getting tired.
On SSB, K1 "Rubber Chicken" phonetics usually work in a pinch..

With my old call (K1CGJ) any speed over about 25 was a bear,
but 28-30 worked best. On SSB -  YUK!  Guess thats why I've
stayed on CW all those years..

Now my son Jon has that call to contend with... Heh Heh

JMHO

Since the cloud is the primary concentration point of charge, there 
is very little you can do about it except to have something discharge 
the cloud. 

The other "plate" is the entire earth, and the little bit of corona 
you get just leaks off into the air around the points...it never 
makes it back to the cloud.

The capacitance change would be about zero, because in the scheme of 
things you are adding a tiny tiny point on a big blunt surface. 

The problem is better thought of as voltage gradient. Corona and 
perhaps an eventual arc forms when the voltage gradient is high. 
Gradient increases with concentration of an electric field. That is 
why two capacitor plates will have a much lower voltage breakdown 
when they have microscopic points on the plates than when they are 
finely polished. That's also why spark plugs and other intentional 
spark gaps have the lowest voltage breakdown when they have sharp 
points. 

Many points spread out over a large area can form a cloud of ionized 
air, and that cloud of ions can decrease the voltage gradient at each 
tower. That could increase the voltage required to have a breakdown.
 
> I wonder if this could be measured by current sensors placed around
> the various towers in big installations like these?

I've tried to measure current into my insulated 300 foot tower, and 
it is microamperes unless a bolt flashes in the distance. Then it 
ruins the meter, and knocks me on my rump. The very small leakage 
current simply goes to replenish the ion cloud formed at points 
near the top of the tower, it never really makes it back to the 
clouds. Even if it did (without causing a lightning bolt), the amount 
of charge change would be insignificant.

It seems reasonable to me that dozens of towers with big pointy 
antennas and wires spread all around would look somewhat "blunt" as 
an overall picture to the electric field, compared to a single tall 
sharp structure all by itself. That could reduce the voltage gradient 
around the towers, but not between cloud and earth.73, Tom W8JI

        I lived about 30 miles due East of John on the Eastern edge
of the Rocky Mtn foothills.  From 1980 until 1993, I had two towers
which were the tallest structures for miles around (25G with a KT-34XA
at 105' and another 45G with a KLM-340 and KLM 520 at 155'), all with 
grounded parasitic elements.  To my knowledge, I was never struck by
lightning.  However it was not uncommon to hear static discharge clicks
in my receiver even on a partly cloudy day if a charged (i.e. dark)
cloud drifted overhead.  I usually took this as a sign to disconnect my
antenna...unless I was in a contest of course!  :-)

        I could even audibly hear the static discharges across the coax 
connector inside when it was disconnected, and this was RG-17 which has 
an RMS voltage rating of 11 kV!  Here in NC, I often can hear audible
clicks coming from my top KLM 610 at 105' (parasitics are not grounded).  
I've had numerous strikes from two different NC locations on my bare 150' 
160 vertical at my first location and on my 180' at my present location.  
I've always attributed the lack of strikes on towers with antennas to the
antennas bleeding the charge before it had a chance to build up.  One of 
these days I plan to put my KLM 340 and 520 back on the 180' tower and it 
will be interesting to see if the strikes stop then.

Total poll: 37
Spoiled votes (no clear choice identified): 4

Result:

Yaesu FT1000MP Mk V  16
Icom IC756PROII      12
Yaesu FT920          2
Icom IC7400 (746PRO) 3

Some observations based on contributors comments:

FT1000MP Mk V
Seems favoured by die-hard contestors.

Many of those who haven't bought/used/voted for the FT1000MP Mk V stated
that they would love to but the track record of reliability problems with
the rig and Yaesus less that shining quality of service put them off. Take
note Yaesu! It appears there were 2 batches of bad FT1000MPs made it to the
dealers. I would certainly agree with one contributors comment that when you
pay that much for a rig you have an inalienable right to expect that it will
work out of the box and continue to work.

ICOM IC756PROII
Seems favoured more by people with a penchant for serious DX-pedition work.
No reliability problems noted.

FT920
A consistent well priced reliable performer. Some noted that its a bit of a
"supposedly great by association" rig - it appears to be much more than it
is (specifically that second VFO type knob don't mean there's a second
receiver like its big brothers (the 1000MP et al), and the DSP is at audio
only).

ICOM 7400 (746 PRO)
A competent, very competively priced, shack in a box. Lack of variable level
attenuation is a significant drawback for contest action though. Some
comments about the quality of parts and finish but nobody could fault
performance.

AND MY CHOICE IS....

A Yaesu FT1000D! Yep believe it or not I've decided not to buy any of the
rigs on my shortlist. I had the opportunity to spend some time with a fully
kitted out 1000D last weekend and really liked it - really...  OK they may
be the wrong side of 10 years old but as one hugely experienced contester
said to me last night - it does EVERYTHING a contestor needs and does it
RIGHT - from ergonomics to reliability. You have to admit there ain't much
around as solidly built :o) Price on the used market is now getting quite
good as well.

Thanks for the contributions - hope the above is of interest to others.

It's easy to copy, it has "rhythm"!.
(Formerly he was I1WXY, quite nice but too long for CW,

Actually the most common mistake was copying N4VX instead of NV4X

The way that finally fixed it was:

Normal "N", slower "V" with an extra long dah, 1/2 longer space
between "V" and "4", faster "4", faster "X".

The effect was an emphasized "V" after the "N".

Quacks
QQ has rythm however some insist that  K7 is  K6 N6 N7 thats where most of
the CW errors were by the other guys,  one had K7OQ   the biggest error they
make is in the ck  62 becomes 63   .
My biggest problem is in changing calls around.  At the key board on PH or
CW  eg  k4OJ   becomes k4JO
w5MYA  becomes w5 MAY.

Fat fingures or Fat Head ???
Have fun at Dayton

yes, E I S H all bite on CW as far as potential for copying errors - just
got done looking at my SS log analysis on the ARRL web site, had made some
of tham errors myself - hats off to the ARRL for following through on this
stuff - it is very good - yes, there are still accuracy issues but details
is enhanced!

Overcoming this is the secret....it was easier in the time of the bug when
there was more fist in signing ones call....with K1EA, K8CC or N6TR signing
a lot of our calls they all kinda sound the same!  There are some slight
alterations of sending methodology allowed in the computer software programs
out there...including pauses and or speed changes...purists say this is
heracy - good code is good code and should not be bastardized by speed ups
or slow downs, etc....I wholeheartedly disagree!  Guys who had unique fists
before computers were recognized - of course some of it was negative like
K3JH who got tired of having his call copied wrong and sent K3J5.

Go back not long ago - my favorite CW calls included N4AR's old call of
K4GSU....he would send it with a pause after the four and then run the rest
together

K4  GSU

I never had a problem copying that....he timed the length of that pause just
right to allow the brain to reset for copy of the balance...

Guys with longer calls also have traditionally been able to send them faster
because it seems our minds process them ok without question...as in G3FXB, F
X B all being 4 part letters.

At high speeds since the mind tends to lag - unless you're a mutrant like
K1TO, et al....dots are easier to screw up - face it we get confused.

When it came time to upgrade our club call - I selected K4NNN rather than a
1X2 because the available one by twos coming up were ALL E I S H
ridden...the only copying problems with that callsign tend to be sometimes
guys think it is K4NN since some is clicking along QRQ and I guess they
think they must be a one by two!

Note also that a call can be TOO short - leaving the listener waiting for
the rest....like E or EE suffixes...you are thinking - there has to be more
to that call!

We have hashed over the pros and cons of dots dashses and how to pick a
vanity call many times on this reflector...I recommend anyone actually
program their computer with a given call before opting to select it - kind
of like trial and error....it may seem wierd visually but what counts is how
it sounds....and anymore that means as sent by your software!  Run it in a
simulator program...try it - HOW DOES IT SOUND!

Sorry for the long post - will be missing Dayton this year and have to
unload some hammy talk without the usual fix!

In addition to making sure the letters in the the suffix of your callsign at 
least minimize the possibilities of being mis-copied, there is also the "rhythm 
factor" that I believe helps copy calls better on CW. Some calls seem to just 
naturally "swing" and stick in my head better than others.

When I finally considered getting a vanity call after 40+ years of being W3GOI 
(not only a lot of CW dits and dahs, but a mouth full on fone), I chose ones 
that seemed to flow best in CW as well as not be mis-copied in the heat of a 
contest. Also, I got tired of being a "3" in 4-land...

With all the automated keying, it's hard to find an actual recognizable FIST
anymore, but a few guys still do it the "hard" way by hand.  My dear friend
K3II is unmistakeable with his ever-so-slight pause that makes the didit
didit stand out.  Most logging software offers some way to add pauses to
simulate this effect.  I use it sometimes myself to reduce the number of
K3GP, K3PW, etc. copies.  It seems to work, especially with this
double-letter call.

Another problem is my check of "54" in the fone SS.  Fifty four
and sixty four sound a lot alike in QRM.  I finally started
saying "five four-fifty four" to end the confusion and had a lot
less request for repeats.

Some calls are a real bear on fone.  Something like "Whiskey
America Seven India Mexico Juliet."  Thats got 17 syllables,
compared to "Kilo One Mike Mike" with 5.  A good call could save
a lot of talking in a fone contest.  73

Message-ID: <01ad01c1feea$9a92d140$03010a0a@office1>

Just got back from Hamvention, and I just had to share this one:

But first, a trick question:  What's the legal maximum output power in Italy
at present?  (It's a rhetorical question, you don't have to answer it right
now)

Friday afternoon, I was sitting in the Ice Arena behind AES talking to
another DX'er/Contester when a gentleman came up to us passing out flyers.
The flyers were advertising an HF amplifier built in Italy by an Italian ham
(I am deliberately not mentioning calls or such, incidently).  The amp is
claimed to be built by someone with "decades of experience" with commercial,
military, and amateur amplifiers.

But let's cut to the chase:
Output power:  For 100 Watts drive, 3.5 kW Out.  Or if you prefer to run
QRO, for 400 Watts drive, 7 kW Out.  (OK, in all fairness, it does say the
ham version is "1.5 kW (limited)" but still...)

I guess all of us who've been concerned about "California Kilowatts" over
the years now know where they come from!

Here we go again, why get on the Italians back, they are no worse
then others, no worse then Americans, Swedes or what ever.
How much power an amplifier can run compared to the power limit
of the country it?s manufactured in is of no relevance.
Ron, why don?t you talk about the Henry 8K? Becourse it?s US
made I guess. With 400 in it will put out around 7K also.
Now on the California KW, I have lernt that a Cal KW was a
dual 4-1000A amp and there was lots of W6 guys runing those
boxes back in the fifties and sixties, these days guys run 4CX5000
or 10000 instead, 4-1000A are getting outdated.

It is said that no good deed goes unpunished.  Apparantly the same is true
of someone trying to enjoy a chuckle with friends.

Based on the number of direct emails I've gotten on this post, I feel it is
neccesary to point out two things:

(1)  I am not picking on the Italians as a whole.  Comments made on this
reflector about I power levels in the recent past notwithstanding.
(2)  I have not forgotten or ignored other unusually hefty amps marketed to
amateurs (the US built Henry 8K being the most frequently mentioned item)
regardless of the point of origin.

I was simply amused that someone would actually have the chutzpah to hand
out flyer promoting a 7 kW output amplifier in the same manner in which the
local pizza shop hands out $1 off coupons.  Period.  Mention of the country
of origin of the amplifier was incidental and would not have mattered
regardless of said country of origin.  And any humor was directed at the
manufacturers of amp, not the entire amateur population of that country as a
whole.

I have also come to the conclusions that some people have chips on their
shoulder and take offense needlessly (though I now wonder if this hit a
little too close to home for a few of those); and as Ray Owens often points
out over on the "Joke A Day" web site, if you're willing to enjoy a good
joke, you must also be prepared when it's your turn in the barrel -- which
many people seem unwilling to do.

Sheesh.

NOW you've done it! You went 'pasta' the line and have stirred the pot.

Kinda reminds me of a CB Fest I went to once.  They had a WHOLE
bunch of linears and CB radios that ran 100-200 watts.  Of
course, there was a big sign stating, "Illegal for use in the
U.S."  I'm sure they paid a lot of attention to that sign.

Yeah, and as I was driving north between Champaign and Chicago, IL on I-57
the other day, several people were getting the maximum speed out of those
cars ...

Unfortunately, too many can't find the 50% switch, Dan, and that's why they
are "busting" these big pileups with their "killer" signals.

Guys,
  The only thing of interest in this thread that I picked up on,
is that at least someone from Italy is being honest.
We have all know for years that the 300 watt stations were probably 300 to
the XXX power. Either that or they have the best locations in the world, OR 
they
can build antennas that defy science and engineering practices.
Probably won't be able to buy an Italian Q now!

Hi,

can anyone advise me which headset is best for contesting ?

I'm considering the Heil Proset or the Proset +.

What do you think ?  Is the Proset + worth the extra money ?

Please let me know.

I have not used the Proset+ on the air, but did look closely at it this
weekend in Dayton.  The Proset+ is quite different from the regular proset.

One major difference is that it includes both the HC-4 and HC-5 elements
which you can select via a tiny slide switch on the mike boom.

Another difference is that there is a toggle switch that puts one ear piece
out of phase.

The last difference is that the headset overall is much larger and, in my
opinion, more comfortable.

With either headset, the new 'stretchy' elastic / cotton covers for the
earpads are excellent and make both more comfortable to my ears.

The cotton covers are priced too high at $6 a pair, but they do make a
distinct improvement in comfort.  I anticipate that it will reduce the
amount of sweating that was normal with only the standard 'leather' pads.

Message-ID: <00A0E375.06D5F5B9.1@egh.com>

        I keep hearing about the California kilowatt.  That unit, though
        impressive, will not do a perenniel Low Power entrant (like me)
        any good.

        Does anyone know of a manufacturer selling a Rhode Island kilowatt,
        which will take my 120 watts and boost it to 150 watts, all the
        while running at about 30% of its capability?  Also, I presume it
        will have a 30% switch which can be found reasonably easy.

        :-)

Hi


Files for TR, and a fully functional module for WL are now 
available from http://www.rsgbhfcc.org.


Select the 2002 contests tab, then from the list, the Jubilee 
contest. The full rules are found there, and towards the bottom 
is a link to software for the contest which also includes 
information for other loggers such as SD,CTJ,N1MM and YPlog. 
>From there just follow your nose!


The TR files were provided as a co-operative venture by various 
users. The WL module was written by Ray/G4FON, with assistance 
from W5XD. Thanks are also due to Tim/G4VXE for posting the 
files as above. Phew, I think that's all the credits! Have fun 
and make sure you work me!

well, they sound wonderful, both TX and RX. Electrically fabulous.

After two hours of the WPX SSB contest, however, I had to take them off 
because of the discomfort (ok, pain) they caused my ear lobes - and went 
back to my trusty Pro Micro set with the same HC4 element.

It may be that they didn't fit me because of my overly large head, or 
because my glasses get mashed into the side of my head by large ear pads, or 
both.

Try them on for a while before you buy!

One thing I just cant fathom is why Heil and/or other headset makers 
havent come out with an active noise-reduction stereo headset with a 
dynamic boom mike!

I find my Noisebuster Extreme headphones indispensable in noisy 
environments, but it's not over the ear, it's very cheaply made, and 
suffers from RFI when in a high RF environment.  However, I often use it, 
with my Proset over the top just for the microphone.

I asked Mr Heil about that a couple of years ago at Dayton and he showed 
no interest whatsoever.

Sure, his mikes are probably the best, but the headphones are crap (OK, 
they are comfortable crap!).  How anyone could be so serious about 
microphone audio and not give a darn about headphone audio and electronics 
is beyond me...

I think it's a small gold mine waiting to be tapped...and I'd pay several 
hundred dollars for the full package.

I think Jay needs a new product line, doesnt he??  ;)

I have not used the Proset+ on the air, but did look closely at it this
weekend in Dayton.  The Proset+ is quite different from the regular 
proset.

One major difference is that it includes both the HC-4 and HC-5 elements
which you can select via a tiny slide switch on the mike boom.

Another difference is that there is a toggle switch that puts one ear 
piece
out of phase.

The last difference is that the headset overall is much larger and, in my
opinion, more comfortable.

With either headset, the new 'stretchy' elastic / cotton covers for the
earpads are excellent and make both more comfortable to my ears.

The cotton covers are priced too high at $6 a pair, but they do make a
distinct improvement in comfort.  I anticipate that it will reduce the
amount of sweating that was normal with only the standard 'leather' pads.

I recently replaced my Heil Proset with a Pro-set Plus.  The Plus seems to
sound better on transmit (maybe the Proset was just getting old).  It
definitely seems to be more rugged.

I haven't really noticed that the Phase reverse switch on the Plus does much
for me.  It is fun to play with, but once your ear adjusts to the new phase,
it sounds the same as it did before you switched.  :)

Either way, you can't go wrong.

Ditto....my Pro set kills my ears after about 6 hours.  Have to go back to
the lightweights with no ambient noise reduction.  Don't know why someone
can't just make a large enough form fitting headset.  Of course this beats
the old Trim headsets.

Oh yes, how can you try for 6 hours before you buy. :-)

Subject: [CQ-Contest] SS LCR
Message-ID: <20020521002343.A6479@w9wi.com>

For no particularly good reason I was messing around on arrl.com this
evening & checked out my LCR report for SS, both modes.  Interesting stuff
in there.

- When other people busted my serial number or check on CW, they *always*
were off in a single digit.  On the other hand, when I busted someone else's
number, sometimes I did something very different.  (typing 462 instead of
248 in one case, and 21 vs. 32 in another)  Weird.

- When others busted my information on SSB, the "bust" was rather different. 
One station got 183 instead of 215; another got my exchange as "U 54 IL" - I
was sending "A 73 TN"!  My busts of others' information on SSB were always
off in a single digit.  

- On phone, I had one NIL - all other errors were single-digit errors in
serial number.  On CW there were two NILs, a unique, a busted call, two bad
checks, one bad section, one bad power, and ten serial number busts.  Not
really a big surprise - the least predictable piece of information was the
one missed the most often.  

- Six people logged me with WI9WI's exchange info.  ("58 WI")  Best I can
tell from the report they actually did work me, but had Jim's information on
file & didn't type in what I sent.  It may be worthy of note that four of
these busts happened on SSB, even though I made only about 20% as many QSOs
on SSB as I did on CW. 

- Except for the four people who entered WI9WI's info, and the one who got
"U 54 IL" from somewhere, nobody else got my section wrong on SSB.  On the
other hand, on CW, three people put me in Wisconsin; five in Indiana.  

- Even more interesting, on CW twelve people got my power as A when I was
actually sending B.  I hope.  Two others busted my power in some other way.

Lessons:

- I type too fast.  That's the only way I can explain the numbers I busted
by more than a single digit.  It probably explains some of the ones busted
by only a single digit too.

- I'm not careful enough to get fills when not certain of a number.  I think
my error rate was reasonable, but it was over twice that of W4PA.  Of
course, one should never really be happy with any figure greater than zero.

- Too many people take what their computer tells them too literally.  You've
got to copy what the guy sends, not what your computer thinks he's going to
send.  Sometimes, people move.

My friend has a saying that the best modes of communications
are the ones that involve only the two principal parties with no
middle men (read HF operation vs FM repeaters). Sounds like
this principle should be applied to QSLing as well (yes I know,
the post office).

I stopped by the Heil booth yesterday as it was being torn down.  I asked
Mr. Heil if he considered using noise reduction headphones.  He became quite
agitated and told me that the Pro Set+ was the best headset ever made and
the phase reversal was better than noise reduction.

I have never tried the new Pro Set but I have contested with Bose noise
reduction headphones.  I would never operate without the noise reduction
models ever again.  The noise was reduced greatly and I could operate with
the AF gain much lower than without them - something I will surely
appreciate 30 years from now.  The only negative was that they were
susceptible to RF and it took a long time to make them usable.

My question to Mr. Heil was based on a legitimate interest in combining the
boom mic with the good headphones.  What I did for phone in the past was to
sacrifice a cheap boom mic from a hands free phone headset.  I bought the
Heil contest element and replaced the one at the end of the boom.  I then
glommed the boom onto the Bose set with tie wraps and tape.  It was not
pretty but it lasted 48 hours with no trouble.

Tyler,

Your focus on the noise reduction is a good one, but your other observation
strikes a more familiar chord with me:

"How anyone could be so serious about microphone audio and not give a darn
about headphone audio and electronics
is beyond me...  "

I use Kenwood HS-5 headphones for CW operating instead of my Heil.  Why?
Because it has limited frequency response and reduces the amount of garbage
that my ears have to sift through to hear the signals.  I asked Heil about
that at a Lone Star DX Assn meeting a few years ago, and he was equally
disinterested.

The problem as I see (hear) it is that the speakers he uses in the headsets
are too good for HF communication use.  They're excellent for listening to
music, which tells me that my ears are hearing too much high and low
frequency stuff through them when the cans should be tailored for 300Hz to
3kHz.

I once used N2EA's Icom HP-1's at N2RM's several years ago and found that
their limited frequency response (by design) was very advantageous and
sounded great.  Unfortunately, Icom didn't make them any longer even back
then, but the Kenwood's are pretty close and are also designed to have a
limited frequency response.  I think the Icom's were the best I have ever
used for CW.

If Heil would do that, he'd really have me locked in and buying his latest
model.

Quacks
I find that a headset that has minimum contact with the ear is more
desirable.  I've been using an old Military style that was made to use in an
aircraft high noise enviroment.
Most of you have seen them at ham fest.  They are a light grey in color and
some have a microphone attached.  The microphone is usless.  I have attached
a Heil mike cartridge to the old microphone with sewing thread and it has
worked great for many years and even while wearing glasses not caused a
great deal of discomfort.  The earphones are intended as communications so
none (very little) of the high freq stuff comes through.
Just my .02 cents

My favorite headphone for (CW) contesting is a cheap (~$10-15) 
Sony set that weighs about an ounce and fits in the ear, not over. 
They are comfortable for long periods of times. They don't exclude 
external noise, so probably not suitable for a multi environment. As 
I recall, I got them at Walmart or Target in the electronics section.

I agree with K3MM - the speakers in headphones designed for ham radio usage 
could be better.  I wonder if there is a source for low impedance speakers (for 
my Yaesu's) and doing a retrofit on my Heil Prosets would be an option....
My favorite cans were the Beyer ones well publicized in early issues of 
NCJ....my set is pretty much so hosed however and has all kinds of patches on 
it including a big piece of foam over the head held on with black tape...'

Is working with headphones like working with audio speakers where you have to 
be aware of the volume of the enclosure they are going into?  I know this is a 
science and you cannot just build a plywood box stick speakers in it and have 
it sound worth a hoot.  Is the size of the "can" they are in crucial to the 
performance of the speaker in a set of headphones...are those same forces at 
work?

Sometimes I suffer from irritated cranial displacement * (sore head from 
headphones) and as such keep a variety of cans near the operating position for 
swapping out - it is kind of like changing your chair during mid-contest...an 
ergonomic thing.

Message-ID: <NEBBIHDFILKFAICDBOGHGEBGDHAA.jljarvis@adelphia.net>

This is both a fertile and welcome topic, in the 
post-Dayton opinion flurry.

First, Bob....you are the ONLY guy I know who would
complain that the headset booties are too expensive 
at six bux a pair.  Let's see, a pair of bencher skyhawks
costs what...$2k?  A pair of booties $6.  

As a guy who spent too much of his youth in the broadcast
business, and has ears that stick out too far, I've probably
tried every headset made by man, in search of good sound and
isolation, and comfort.  With those credentials:

1)  The booties make the Proset more comfortable.  I added
them to mine.  (Gee, Honey, I shopped for 3 days, and spent
six bucks!  And yeah, I paid too much, you're right.)

2)  The Proset+ is about 20% heavier than the smaller one.
It's more comfortable because the earpieces are larger, and
it has a secondary head band, below the primary spring.

3)  The earpiece phasing is intriguing.  If I had a 1000MP
or D, I would say it's definitely useful, because of their
stereo audio.  In the Icom world, I think it may be questionable,
but I didn't choose to spend $180 to find out.  
    If anything causes me to dump my PRO for a 1000Field, it will
be the stereo audio/headset phasing combination.
    Opinions?

4)  The HC4/HC5 choice has always been a problem for me.  The 4 
cuts out a good half of my talk power, and sounds thinner. The 5
has a lot of punch, with my voice.  
    Were it not for that, I would have brought a + home from Dayton.
My conclusion, therefore, is that if the HC4 works for you...the +
is worth having.  If the HC4 works for you, and you use Yaesu, 
there is no question about it.

5)  I'm contemplating installing a phasing switch inside my Proset,
to test the effect with mono audio.  Will report results here.

I wouldn't worry too much about anything posted about patents for eQSL.cc's
system, especially what's posted at
http://www.qslcard.com/qslcard/reasonswhy.cfm  (I don't think that anything
there's changed in a long time, it all looks pretty familiar).   While I am
not a lawyer, nor do I portray one on TV, as a programmer I can't see what
there is to patent.

In essence, eQSL.cc is nothing more than a database application.  And the
.jpg files generated are just the output from it.

In any event,  I'm sure that the ARRL has taken this into consideration
during the design and testing of Logbook of the World, which they have
stated has a different purpose that providing .jpg files that simulate QSL
cards.

I quite agree, I tend to like my Sennheiser NR headphones the best. Low
weight, good intelligibility, fatigue free. If the audio bandwidth is to
wide it can always be narrowed outboard. Their is a real element of the
Noise Reduction allowing you to hear further into the noise floor. I guess
the S/N ratio doesn't play favorites with where the noise came from, reduce
the noise and the S/N gets better!

Subject: [CQ-Contest] eqsl.cc patents?
In-Reply-To: <20020520163712.D4653@cs.utexas.edu>
Message-ID: <EMEKIMJIEGNGMKHFDEGIOELNCKAA.dick.green@valley.net>

I'm not a patent lawyer and these comments are my own, not ARRL's (repeat,
not ARRL's). My personal opinion is that eqsl.cc and LOTW are fundamentally
different:

Eqsl.cc is a repository of radio contact information that can be used to
manually initiate a return confirmation. The confirmation is manual in the
sense that the recipient is informed about the pending QSL request,
determines whether or not the contact is valid and must tell the system to
initiate a return confirmation. It is not necessary to know the QSO
information in order to generate a return confirmation.

Logbook of the World is a also a repository of radio contact information,
but the confirmations take place automatically. Bulk log records are
uploaded by participants and the system automatically matches them to
generate electronic confirmations that may be automatically routed to an
awards processing system. Both participants in a contact must independently
know the QSO information in order to obtain a confirmation (i.e., you can't
read the QSO information submitted by the other guy in order to create your
matching QSO record.)

There are significant implementation differences: For example, LOTW uses
state-of-the art digital signature technology to verify identity and
permanently guarantee the content of QSO records against alteration, while
eqsl.cc uses a simple id and password security scheme that is vulnerable to
hacking and does not protect the submitted data against unauthorized
modification. It's quite possible that the differences in the security
schemes would be enough to make the approaches fundamentally different: it
wouldn't be hard to show that the less advanced scheme can't produce
confirmations reliable enough for awards processing and therefore has a
different end result (a printed card versus a secure awards confirmation.)

In my opinion, the only way a patent could stop LOTW is if it protected the
entire idea of electronic confirmation of radio contacts, regardless of how
it's implemented. The U.S. Patent and Trademarks Office tends to shy away
from overly broad claims like that, and usually requires that a step-by-step
procedure be described in the broadest claim. Any such step-by-step
procedure describing eqsl.cc would have to lay out the manual confirmation
scheme, which is not the same as the automatic confirmation inherent in
LOTW. Further, to get a broad procedure-less claim approved, N5UP probably
would have to show that he was the first person with the idea. However,
there have been discussions about electronic QSLing in the amateur community
for a long time, well before eqsl.cc hit the drawing board. Some may be in
print.

It's possible that N5UP could get a patent on some of the sub-procedures,
like generating a QSL card image from the electronic QSO information. But
that's just a process, not something fundamentally new. After fiascos like
Amazon's "One-Click", the patent office has made it a lot tougher to get
process patents. Besides, even if such a patent was granted, it wouldn't
stop the most valuable part of LOTW, which is automatic confirmations
feeding into the awards system.

Do bear in mind that it is extremely expensive to defend a patent. My guess
is that no one would bring an infringement suit against a large organization
unless there was significant profit potential in the business -- and there
isn't. I would also imagine that the amateur community would be pretty angry
at anyone who even temporarily deprived them of the long-awaited ability to
bypass paper cards and snail mail to get awards securely. It's supposed to
be a friendly hobby, isn't it?

As for finding patent applications online, you can search for them on the
patent office website at www.uspto.gov. Unfortunately, while all granted
patents are published, the publication of pending patent applications is at
the discretion of the submitter. Only a handful of people decide to do this,
so the number of pending applications available at the website is pretty
small. This makes it really tough to figure out if a competitor is angling
to get a patent for a particular technology! You only find out after the
fact, potentially losing a lot of money in R&D efforts. I searched for
"QSL", "amateur", or "Morris" in the pending applications and didn't find
anything. But that doesn't mean the application isn't pending.

Hey Bob, did I ever get those HP-1's back?   Can't find 'em anywhere!
(regrettably, I seem to have misplaced them when moving up to VT)

I would agree that for contest work, the Heil cans need bandwidth 
limitation.  The good Mr. Heil has been pretty receptive to marketing
ideas...so perhaps he'll contemplate the performance segment of our
market, and see what that brings.  (copied herewith, to stimulate
discussion off-reflector).  

Meanwhile, a question:  Has anyone else gotten tired of wrapping the
6' cord around their desk chair, and decided to shorten the proset
cable?

At KC1XX, almost everyone has the Sony MDR-V900 or the Bose noise-cancelling
headphones (or both!), as well as a Heil Proset (the older model).  Steve K6AW
grafted the boom from the old Heil BM-10 headset onto his Bose headphones. 
I've seen Matt KC1XX wearing the Bose underneath a Heil Pro set (for the mike).
 A few of our Heils need to go to the Heil Hospital.  My Proset Plus is
on-order from HRO, so I'll have plenty of choices to play with this summer
(Bose, Heil, Sony).

While I agree technically, plenty of things get patented that are fairly
obvious.  It may not "stand" if there were to be a fight, but one stills has

I really don't see how someone can patent a simple 
Web application that accesses a database, retrieves
a JPG image stored on a secondary "storage location"
and puts it on the web.. 

If he wants to sue people for
doing that, then he might as well start hauling 
some of my customers into court, because that
"patentable technology" is being used in some places
to bring up electronic copies of what traders scribble
on order cards.

To quote from his site:
"It is instantaneously available
We use state-of-the-art database technology. This
allows us to implement new features quickly and
easily."

>

We have applied for patents on most aspects of the
eQSL.cc system. This means that any competitor's
exchange will be infringing on our patents, and will
likely have to shut down. "

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Noise reduction in headsets
Message-ID: <001001c200f5$9f1164e0$ee7ef3d8@n7df>

I have also found that the Heil headsets are a little too broadband for amateur 
communications work but I've found a very effective solution.

I route my headphone audio through an AMCOM (1-888-803-5832) ClearSpeech 
Digital speaker. (Model CSS-1)  The results are remarkable.  Often it sounds 
like the band is dead as there is no noise whatsoever unless you are receiving 
a station.  There is a minimum amount of digital ringing on strong signals 
which can be controlled by reducing the receiver gain.  I have  frequently 
found that a station is Q-5 through the CSS-1 and simply not there without it.

On the TI9M DXpedition I found that I could cascade the CSS-1 with the DSP 
noise reduction in the ICOM 756 PRO II and have total noise silence on 160 
meters.  This let me copy stations that were so weak that they only hissed in 
the headphones.  Without the full cascaded system they simply weren't there.  
It also allowed much better discrimination between tones when pulling stations 
out of pileups.

Well what your saying makes perfect sense - to another programmer anyhow :o)
'cept for one small thing: the whole question of patents & IPR's
(Intellectual Property Rights) doesn't look at the "essence" of what a piece
of software is i.e. at some level its a database or whatever. IPR's &
Patents are awarded, yes for new ideas, but as frequently for "innovative
application" of existing technologies and ideas - in my experience of IPR
issues eqsl would have an argueable case here...

However, I suspect that the idea of electronic qsl'ing long pre-dates eqsl
and someone out there would probably be able to take eqsl to task - remember
the famous case of Mac vs. windows over graphical user interfaces?

I watch with [detached] interest...

I have a Pro Micro that I like better than either of my 15 year old BM-10's
(all with HC-4 element).

Last night the mic boom swivel would not hold in position.  To use I had to
move the whole boom
to the lowest position.  I sent Heil an e-mail asking for help.  Bob Heil
sent me an e-mail backing asking me to call today.  I talked to a lady and
she said the button that connects to the headset (same as on the Pro full
size) was bad.  She took my address and is sending me a new button.  She
told me to remove the button by removing the two small screws (I have a
jeweler screwdriver set) and replace.  this button holds the boom in place
thru a short plastic rod.  Guess I moved the boom too often..HI.

Thanks for the support Heil!

Stations within the Commonwealth may not contact their own call area for
points or multipliers. Stations outside the Commonwealth may contact
Commonwealth stations only. For this contest all of G, GM, GW, GI, GJ, GU,
GD counts as one call area. A station may be contacted only once per band,
regardless of mode. Each contact scores 5 points. The multiplier is the
total of different Commonwealth call areas worked on each band.

Deadline for logs: 6 July 2002. Paper logs to G3UFY, QTHR. Email logs to
hf.contests@rsgb.org.uk

Free logging software (SDJ) is available from www.ei5di.com. Some other

"Meanwhile, a question:  Has anyone else gotten tired of wrapping the

I have an extension cord for the phones...it has a right angle plug that
goes into the rig (to avoid knob related collissions)...and a socket at the
other end.

This cord is routed under the rig and behind the operating desk....then
along the underside of the desk and over to the side until it comes up to
about pants pocket height.  This is the location of the socket/receptacl3
for the headphones....

Frequently this means the headphone cord is long than it needs be, as such
recommen you ty-wrap/velcro wrap up the last few feet of the
cord...careful - not TOO short - I sometimes will stand up while operating
to ease the backs sorrow at sitting for so long - or to wake up - it is
really hard to fall asleep standing up (ask any of the late night attendees
at the Hamvention, right - the pros usually are standing while talking -
no?) [have a cardboard box handy to elevate the computer keyboard -
otherwise it can quite a way down when you're stnading!]

I have a little coat hanger-upper next to where the excess headphone cable
goes to accomodate that "loop"...

Another vote for the Bose phones. I love mine, and use them in contests and
on planes. They're as
light and comfortable as anything I've ever used, including my old Beyers,
and the NR works amazingly
well. With the fans in 2 rigs, 2 amps, and a PC all running, I hear none of
them. And I find I can actually sleep
on long-haul flights now.

I had a bit of RFI, which a toroid cured easily.

Previously, I bought a cheapo pair (not earmuff-type) of NR headphones from
an ad in the back of QST for $75. They don't
work very well at all and are very uncomfortable.

If you consider foam pads a $6 a pair expensive, stop reading now. The Bose
phones cost $300. There's a version
for pilots with a mike attached, but it's $1000, which is too much, and I
only operate CW at home anyway.

I got mine as a birthday present last year, after mentioning them a couple
of times while working up the nerve to
tell Mrs. DG that I was planning to spend $300 for a pair of headphones. She
beat me to the punch.

Hi Barry

The biggest problems with these type of headphones (and most
others) is they are designed for music and stereo use.  The highs
and lows are WAY beyond what is needed for communication.  I have
an old set of WW2 earphones from a B-29 bomber.  They are the
best thing I've ever used except after a while they get kind of
heavy.  73

I find that after wrapping a enough of the lead around a snap-on ferrite
core in order to combat RFI, the lead could easily be another half meter
or so than it already is.

Or am I the only one who likes to stand from time to time when
operating?  ;^)

The problem isn't that 28 guys can't copy Morse correctly - it's that 28
guys can't admit they can't handle Hans' speed.

Unless Hans is ignoring QRS requests.  
(which I don't think is happening)
(however, reports are that *some* ops *do* ignore QRS requests.  Not a good
thing - maybe a good argument *for* docking you a QSO if the other guy busts
your info...  no, I'm not seriously suggesting that...)

Personally I find that kind of phones fatuiging in two ways.

First, because they *are* kind of heavy.  For a short operating session of
an hour or two, not a big deal.  For an entire contest, a problem.  

Second, because of the strange frequency response.  Headphones, like crystal
filters, don't have a square response curve.  They have peaks and valleys. 
I find communications phones to be "tinny" and "unnatural".  I've paid good
money for the IF filters in my rigs; I figure *that's* the right place for
selectivity.  

My headset?  $20 at Radio Shack.  Designed for use with computer sound
cards.  Admittedly the *transmit* response is probably not the ultimate for
contesting/DXing.  I do get very good reports when rag-chewing - and if I
had a FT1000MP I'll bet the transmit audio settings could be configured to
be quite competitive.  

(and after the contest, you can plug them into a CD player and enjoy a bit
of the non-CW variety of music :) )

Absolutely! It's important to change positions periodically if you are
going to operate for extended sessions!

The airlines are seeing cases where people are dying from
sitting in a restricted position for long periods of time on long
flights, and cases have also been reported for people driving
long distances without getting up periodically.
      http://www.venousdisease.com/parsi.pdf

In CW contests, I like to switch off to a pair of 900 MHz RF
headphones (Sony) that allow me to stand, jog in place,  and
even to run to the bathroom or kitchen during a long CQ. I
switch off between Heil and an old pair of Telex "in the ear"
headphones to keep my ear from being flattened the same way
for too long.

The wireless headphones also allow me to monitor the activity
in a multi-single when I'm not operating, or when I'm getting
ready to take the chair from the current operator.

In phone contests, I use a couple of different pairs of Heil
headsets to provide at least a little variation, and like the
long cable to allow me to stand and stretch once in a while.

Several people have asked for the model number and/or ordering info. They are 
called "Quiet Comfort", and here's the URL you want"

http://www.bose.com/noise_reduction/personal/qc_headset/

They offer a 30-day free trial, and I have no idea if they track the contest 
calendar. A flurry of free trials beginning the end of October and a lot of 
returns at the end of November might be suspicious...

Hi All,

I find it very interesting that many comments suggest that headphones
for communication should be tailored for narrow bandwidth.  I cannot
understand why.  If I use headphones that have a narrow response curve,
I quicky become tired and can't keep the things on.  It
s like listening to a tin can.  Even when I'm doing
a CW contest with 100Hz filters, I want a full-bandwidth headset.  So,
I'm in the camp with the guys who like good quality stereo headphones,
although my Heil Pros work just fine.

You'll notice that the high-end ham rigs now have decent audio amps. 
They used to use crappy single-chip high-distortion low bandwidth
devices.  Now they sound much better.  Do ALL the filtering before
audio, and it sounds great.

Message-ID: <3E83378A.4EC40BAC.0000C54B@aol.com>

The Bose electronic noise cancelling headsets are (arguably) the best, however 
they are also by far the most expensive. Almost-as-good aviation headsets are 
made by Lightspeed, and sell for $300 - $500 (microphone included). They are 
also pretty comfortable for full size over the ear type headsets. I would 
assume that the microphone elements could be replaced by a Heil HC4 or HC5 if 
you were so inclined. I have not used mine except in the airplane, so I can't 
comment on its SSB audio quality. My VHF/AM reports have always been good.

I've never found noise reduction necessary in my shack. We pilots are basically 
already deaf, so amplifier fan noise and the like don't bother us! ;>)

Will

Bill,
  Yeah, I know what you mean. What I really don't understand is how
people confuse my name the way they do, My name isn't particularily
difficult and certainly is not unusual.
I tell folks that my name is Tom, and I cannot tell you how many
times they have come back and called me "Carl".  "Carl" ?
No wonder I prefer CW these days, obviously I don't speak very well !

Message-ID: <BMELLFEAJLMCBCIGAHLOGELDCMAA.widelitz@gte.net>

Earbuds are the MOST comfortable way to go. Yes, the frequency range is
large as they are sold for listening to music. However, they are inexpensive
($5 to $20,) weigh virtually nothing and only come into contact with the
inner ear. I am able to keep the AF very low. Radio Shack now has silicon
boots that make them even more comfortable. For phone contests, I hang my
mic from a gooseneck so no need for a Heil type headset. After a 48 hour
contest my inner ear is slightly tender, but nothing like what my ears have
endured with over the ear headsets. With a 20' extension cable I can move
around, jump up and down, get to the fridge and they don't fall out. I have
routed the extension cable so it comes out from under the operating table
and the slack hangs on a hook.

the bag!)

Gerry - what headphones have you used that have caused this?

In my experience, the opposite is true.  When I switch from my Heils to my
Kenwoods it is such a relief to not hear all of the high pitched noise.

Perhaps you just SOUND like a "Carl"?

(Hmm. Does this mean I sound like I'm old enough to be first licensed in 
1935? I don't FEEL 40 years older....)

I have an old, almost unused, QRZ Industries, VB-8A "Natural Voice Recorder"
and I have been thinking about putting it back in action--but on VHF/UHF
for some beacon/weak signal work.

I recently suffered a "tragic plumbing accident" and the manual is toast,
albeit soggy toast.

1)  Anyone know how to reach the company to get a new manual (or can
someone spare/copy a manual for me?

2)  Is this old thing worth the effort even?

Well said Bob,  The Stero type head sets grab too many highs and Lows.  NOT
needed for SSB or CW.
I have a TS 870 and can narrow the IF considerably.  Stereo  Headphones
still blast and RX too much.

WRTC committe should not permit use of so advantegous headphones. If it is a
leveled field, than no headphones better than average should be seen on the

The problem with most aviation sets is that they use electret mikes that 
require a bias voltage from the radio (or an external box to interface 
it), but you could probably drop a Heil element into a lot of these with 
little trouble.  They also say "aviation" on them which means the price 
doubles (or triples)...

Here's an interesting one from David Clark...probably expensive and might 
be too much for amateur radio but it's stereo and NR and supposedly 
lightweight and comfortable...and they have a 30 day return as well. Sells 
for $700...

http://www.davidclark.com/h20-10xl.htm

Here's one of 3 by Lightspeed that look interesting:   This is the most 
expensive at ~$500



Here's a Sennheiser that weighs 6 oz...on the ear...$579

Several people have asked for the model number and/or ordering info. They 
are called "Quiet Comfort", and here's the URL you want"

http://www.bose.com/noise_reduction/personal/qc_headset/

They offer a 30-day free trial, and I have no idea if they track the 
contest calendar. A flurry of free trials beginning the end of October and 
a lot of returns at the end of November might be suspicious...

Comments Due: 45 days from publication in the Federal Register. 
Reply Comments Due: 60 days from publication in the Federal Register. 

        While I am not sure exactly when this was published in the
Federal Register, ET 02-98 is available for comment now and the
comment window can be opened by going here:

http://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/prod/ecfs/comsrch_v2.cgi

and entering only  02-98  in Box 1 and clicking Retreive Document List.
There is only one comment there because I'm not sure many even know that 
the comment window is open!  You can read the full FCC NPRM here:

http://www.arrl.org/announce/regulatory/et02-98/

        I have a particular concern with the following paragraph:

"40. The 5000 kHz Petition does not discuss sub-banding and ARRL's suggested
rules would allow all emission types to use the entire band.[94] We note
that several commenters suggest that sub-banding would be useful. We further
note that Section 97.305 of our Rules segregates digital modes from other
amateur station emission modes in the 3500 kHz and 7000 kHz bands to protect
narrow band emissions like data from wider emissions like single-side band
voice.[95] We request comment on whether sub-banding is necessary and/or
appropriate for the 5000 kHz band as well." 

        ARRL is very schizophrenic on this issue.  Today we have mode
segmentation on every HF band except 160, then ARRL proposes NO mode
segmentation for the new 5 MHz band, and now as part of RM-10413 (Novice
and Tech Plus Refarming) they endorse continued segmentation on 80, 40 
and 15.  From their comments above, I believe even the FCC must be 
wondering what ARRL's true position is on mode segmentation...they are 
totally inconsistent in their actions IMHO.

        I obviously have my biases about mode segmentation since that
was the main issue in RM-10352 for Topband.  However, I believe no
segmentation is a dangerous precedent to begin anywhere.  Today we seldom 
see modes out of place on any bands except 160, and I hope we are not
about to repeat the bad experience we've had there over the past 15
years!  

        Here is a summary of current and proposed mode segmentation 
by band for all HF amateur bands:

***************************************************************************
Listed below are the percentage of HF spectrum by band currently
allocated exclusively for Narrowband modes compared with proposed
allocation changes if proposed RM Petitions RM-10352 (160 meters), 
RM-10413 (Novice/Tech Plus Refarming on 80, 40 and 15 meters), and
NPRM ET 02-98 (60 meters) are adopted (other HF bands included for 
reference):

                   NARROWBAND ALLOCATIONS BY BAND

10         17.6         17.6      No change      300 / 1700
************************************************************************

        Whether you agree or disagree with me about the need for 
mode segmentation on our HF bands, I think we all need to make
our feelings known to the FCC.  If we do nothing, we have nobody
to blame but ourselves.  If you want to comment on the FCC's NPRM,
go to this site, enter only  02-98  in Box 1, fill out the other non-
optional boxes and submit a brief comment in the bottom box or attach 
your file (Adobe, Lotus, Word, WordPerfect, etc) in the box above that:

http://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/prod/ecfs/upload_v2.cgi
  
Be sure to confirm your submission on the page that appears after you 
submit.  When you do everything correctly, you should see a page with 
your name and a confirmation number.

        I am not sure of the exact date when the window for ET 02-98 
opened, but it apparently has and will be available for comment until 
late June or early July.  Speak now or forever hold your peace! 

                                                73,  Bill  W4ZV

Good points, Bill!  Comments are accepted anytime, so the filing deadline is
not relevant for filers itching to submit their comments now.  The only
disadvantage is that this gives opponents insight into your position in
advance of their first filing, in effect giving them two bites at the apple.
That seems less relevant in this case, of course, but it still resonates as
the rationale for filing on the last day!  I intend to file short comments
electronically, but I also will send messages to ARRL preparers so they know
there is a constituency that is awake and interested - and, at least in my
case, prefers segmentation.

Give DG some slack - I mean noise given his teammate
I am not sure even the best noise cancelling headphones
are good enough to to protect him.

Message-ID: <cb.22919204.2a1e68d0@aol.com>

Can someone possibly tell me how the prize winners at the Dayton Contest 
Dinner were selected?  Last year ticket numbers were posted in the "party 
room" after the dinner and you picked up your goodie.  This year, I talked to 
some winners that said "someone" just walked up and gave them a prize? There 
were never "ticket numbers" posted that I saw?  Not that it is a big deal, 
but for my $30 I would at least like to be in the running for a nice yagi or 
something else of that value.  As I remember, there are no names on those 
ticket stubs?  How would "someone" know who the winner is then?  Just 
curious, as more than several people made this same comment to me later Sat 
night.

that REALLY makes the difference...

Dayton can see what they missed.  I didn't have much time to
do it right, so the main page is over 1MB worth of thumbnails.
Be patient!  This will have to do for now.  I took about 200+

There were a small number of door prizes that were awarded in the Super suite
after the dinner. Donations were way down this year.

N5RZ, P43E, VE3FU, VA3NA and a few others were winners.

Ah...there WAS a drawing then?

I was in that room (the one with the working bar and which took cash) on the
same floor as the banquet all evening and no one so much as pulled out, much
less called out a number....er...a ticket number.  I was worried that maybe
I'd drunk my way through the drawing without realizing.

All,

Getting overwhelmed by all the posts on Self-Spotting, Skeds, and Dits
vs. Dots?

How about this - 
http://www.ergoquest.com/pagethree.htm

The ULTIMATE operating position.  I particularly like the photo at the
bottom where the operator is laying down on the bed.  Now THAT's
comfort!  No more fatigue during 48 hour contests!

There's even a link to the "Zero Gravity" chair. that swivels back. 
The table comes with cable management, electric-adjustable legs, power
strip, and will support up to a 21" monitor (or FT-1000MP + Alpha)

The only drawback is the $4,000 pricetag for the top-of-the-line
system.

Just thought you might like to dream a little....

With all of the emphasis toward new operating categories, my unique situation 
has motivated me to demand the creation of a new contest category - SO1.5R.

This new category is necessitated by those of us who have our second radio in 
the shop and must use an inferior substitute.  In my case, my second Omni VI 
Plus is back at Ten-Tec for minor repairs, so I must use an old Argosy II, 
with only half the power and half the capability, as my second radio.

This sounds fair, doesn't it?

For that kind of money, you should get a 3D gimbal motorized pivot for the 
entire station.  If you get tired of sitting on your ass, just flip 
inverted and work the contest upside down for a while  (what a rush!)!  Do 
a victory roll for double mults....and so on...

strip, and will support up to a 21" monitor (or FT-1000MP + Alpha)

The only drawback is the $4,000 pricetag for the top-of-the-line
system.

Just thought you might like to dream a little....

Hi Bob

I find the same thing here.  I had a small pair of Sony 'phones
here and when I tried to use them it increased my bandwidth
considerably.  I could hear a lot more crud both up and down the
band.  With the Heil's, it went away.  That'd drive me insane
after a few hours.  73

Hi all

Does it seem to you that there are less postings on 3830 now than
before?  With the hornicopia submission form, you can't see who
is posting the scores till you open the E-mail.  Everything seems
so generic now without any callsigns in the sender line.  Guess
that's "progress."  73

Oh, great, now on Sunday afternoons on 15 we'll have 250kHz of snoring...

Keep that VOX off, please.

On the bright side, I guess having the run station nod off mid-Q is a great
way to find a CQ frequency.

"Shhh, everyone. Another couple of seconds and the frequency is mine!"

And, of course, just wait until the SO2P argument springs forth. (That's
single operator, two pillows, for the uninitiated.)

Heaven help us if K1DG is using his Bose headphones, too.

K1DG: "CQ CQ CQ de K1DG K1DG test"
N4BP: "N4BP"
K1DG: " "
N4BP: "N4 BAKED POTATO"
K1DG: "CQ CQ CQ de K1DG K1DG test"
K1AR: "Never mind him, he's just running in his sleep."

Can't wait to see their booth at Dayton!

Looks to be quite the shoot out this weekend.  The following are suspect
to be QRV in this horse race...

K4JA  (By usual guys I think)
KQ2M  (W7WA + KQ2M + excuses)
KR1G  (NT1N + AG9A)

K4OJ  
N4TO
WW4T  (K4BAI + KU8E - myself) @ W4AN
N2NU

Anyone else? 

For any of you M/S guys...  We will be conducting a round table via MSN IM
during the weekend.  Sort of a private chat room.  If you would like to
join in, MSN IM is free.  Drop me a message at w4an@hotmail.com in MSN
IM.  Once I have your address, I'll add you to the "conversation".  Please
be aware that I am known to actually operate the radio at times and may
not respond to you instantly.  Although I can maintain a higher rate than
K1AR while chatting via IM at the same time.   :)

Give DG some slack - I mean noise given his teammate I am not sure even the 
best noise cancelling headphones are good enough to to protect him.

The "new and improved" NCJ web site is now up and running at 
www.ncjweb.com (thanks to Bruce WA7BNM for all the work). It's a 
work-in-progress, so be sure to check it on a regular basis to see the 
results of the NCJ-sponsored contests and the upcoming WRTC2002 reports 
from Finland in July from our roving reporters. We're also working to 
make sure the Sprint and NAQP Rules are correct and up-to-date for the 
forthcoming running of these events.

Contest results for the Feb 2002 SSB Sprint, the Feb 2002 CW Sprint, and 
the Mar 2002 RTTY Sprint have been recently posted. Click on Contest at 
the top of the home page, and then on the NA Sprint Results on the left. 
The results are retrievable in the gray-shaded NCJ Results Database area 
at the top. This is a drop-down self-select menu.

Below the drop-down menu area are links to pdf files that are the 
printed results that appear in NCJ. As soon as the pdf files are 
available from HQ for the Feb and Mar 2002 Sprints, they will be posted.

The score results for the Jan CW and SSB NAQPs will be posted to the 
drop-down area as soon as they're available from the contest managers, 
and the printed results will be in the Sep/Oct issue of NCJ.

Our policy is to make the official results of the NCJ-sponsored contests 
available through the NCJ Results Database on the web as soon as results 
are available from the contest managers. The full-blown contest results 
(including commentary by the contest manager, soap box comments, etc) 
will continue to be published in NCJ in the next issue after the results 
are available.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Headphones & Cords - isn't it Subjective?
Message-ID: <5.1.0.14.1.20020526153157.02466fb8@mail.gte.net>

I remember doing a service call years ago at the home of
an elderly woman who asked me to kindly adjust the color,
tint, etc. of her television so it was "right".  After several minutes
of tweaking as per her suggestions,  I had her tv showing a perfect
picture.  Never mind that everyone had blue faces and the color was
so saturated that any movement in the picture left a skid mark.

I use a $18 pair of Koss headphones that are very comfortable (to me).
I also like to use a $39 pair of Zenith cordless (alas they are the older
IR type) headphones.  They include separate right/left volume adjustments
which suprisingly reduces fatigue by allowing tweakation of the balance over 
the course
of a weekend.  They are not the most comfortable,  but the trade off is
worth it (to me).  No boom mike nessesary.

I am usually flying solo in my shack during a contest, so noise is no problem.
I use headphones anyway - somehow they just help me to dig a little deeper.

fwiw,
Rich

Sorry this is off topic, but I thought this was worth passing along.

If your local theater carries it, go see the movie Enigma.
http://www.hollywood.com/movies/detail/movie/377679

It is a war (WWII), spy thriller, mystery, romance, featuring Morse code,
cryptographic technical stuff, and, for a change, good dialog.

Plus, there are no light swords, laser cannon, off-earth aliens, etc.

Take your SO; it's a love story, too, so you can make points there.

Interestingly, an upcoming movie is titled "CQ."  In the trailer for it,
"CQ" appeared on the screen in the title area, then changed to "_._. __._"
then back to "CQ".   Check it out here:

Subject: [CQ-Contest] WRTC2002 Raffle
Message-ID: <01c20588$ed78c000$LocalHost@default>

The WRTC2002 Organizing committee is pleased to announce the two winners of
the WRTC2002 Raffle. Lady Luck smiled this time at John Brosnahan, W0UN and
Hank Miller, AA6IR. These two gentlemen will be presented with two complete
tour packages to fly to Helsinki to experience Finland and the entire event
as the guest of WRTC2002. These prize packages include round-trip air travel
plus a one-week stay (room and meals included) at a first class SAS-Radisson
Hotel, as well as access to all WRTC competition events.

The WRTC2002 Organizing committee would like to thank everybody who took
part in the raffle and thus supported the Olympics of amateur radio!

Have a look at:

http://home.hawaii.rr.com/kh7r/

I have only two regrets:  I live over here on Kauai,
and I could not afford Ken's site,  hi.  But it is great,
have been there,  but not operated there.  Many have,
and enjoyed the experience very much.

Hope one of you finds this to be irresistible!!

Tnx to all of you for your replies.

I won't post all the replies I received to the list (the large majority of
them came through the list anyway), but if anyone is interested I'll make a
compilation and send it via private email.

The majority of the replies seem pretty negative towards the Proset+ though.

I think I'll buy a HC4-element and try to find a way to make a boom to mount
it on my favorite headphones...  This will be a lot cheaper and I'll be sure
the audio will be how I like it ! Moreover I never had any problems wearing
those headphones for 24 hrs yet...

Message-ID: <5.1.0.14.2.20020528211559.00ac0900@pop.abs.adelphia.net>

I was reviewing the Crowne Plaza's form letter regarding next year's 
reservations, and noticed some significant changes.  The "pile-up" date is 
a week earlier (before Field Day), reservations may be made by calling 
either the hotel or the chain's 800 number, and the drop-dead date for 
cancelling your reservation without penalty is now May 14, just one day 
before the hamvention opens.  They are still requiring a one-day deposit 
(plus tax) at reservation time, and a 3-day minimum stay.  No information 
on what prices will be in effect -- my informal poll discovered room prices 
this year ranging from $99 to $169 a night.  The lowest was achieved by a 
local ham in September, while June pile-up prices seem to have been in the 
$125 range, and prices when they went to the wait list in May accounted for 
the higher-priced options.

I caught the Saturday night manager as we were checking out at 0500 on 
Sunday morning, and asked her what accounted for the reservation mess this 
year.  She said that the D-Day reunion was erroneously scheduled in the 
hotel before the Hamvention reconfirmed for 2002, and that its organizers 
had a block of rooms set aside that were not released until early May.

At least this sounds like a plausible explanation, and while she didn't say 
so in so many words, I had the impression they had caught enough flak for 
it that they are unlikely to book any other groups into the hotel on 
Hamvention weekend in the future.

Jurgen,

15+ years ago I bought a Heil "replacement" boom for their small foam
headsets.  It is the boom with mic element, cord and a mounting hole at the
end of the boom.  I drilled into the side of a set of headphones and bolted
it on.  I have also heard people epoxy a short bolt on the side.  Forgot
where I ordered it.

Hi,

I have 2 x 4ele 10M Force-12 yagis - should I...

a)  stack them horiz. polarisation one above the other @ 70 & 58ft,

OR

b)  mount them vertically polarised on the ends of a horizontal boom @ 70ft?

Can't be bothered to do the modelling!

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

No! Stacking them 12 feet apart will be disappointing.  Stack them at 70 &
35 feet.

No, this is not my favorite configuration.

        You should definitely stack them vertically.  This will
give you versatility in takeoff angle selection if you can feed
either separately or both in phase (maybe even both out of phase).  
If you stack them horizontally at 70', you are stuck with one set 
of takeoff angles and you will also narrow the horizontal beamwidth
which is a disadvantage in contesting.  Plus you could point them
in different directions if you used a sidemount system which is
invaluable in contesting.  I'm not sure what vertical polarization 
might do but all your neighbors would probably think you were a 
CB'er!  ;-)

        I assume you have the EF-410 which is on a 12' boom.  The 
optimum vertical stacking distance for this boom length is in the 
range of 20'.  12' is definitely too close for them to work 
properly.  A quick look using YO7 shows you would get about +1 dB
gain at 20' instead of 12' spacing, with about the same F/B.  I
would go for one at 50' and the other at 70', or possibly even
greater spacing like 35-40' and 70' to maximize takeoff angle
coverage.  If it were me, I would also invest $100 in YO7 and
optimize the antennas for performance as a stack...VERY simple 
to use and well worth the performance improvement you would get.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] contest radio comments
Message-ID: <000601c20763$40226d70$0200a8c0@k1ttt1>

I am considering a combo hf/vhf/uhf radio to replace the rather lame
ts-680 and ft290r vhf stuff here.  In a quick scan through a handy
catalog I see at least 3 options:

Ft-847 $1250(+$120 cw filter, any others??) hf+6+2+70

Ic-746 $1300(+$190+$120+++ cw and ssb filters, which does it really
nead?) hf+6+2 

Ts-2000 $1760! Hf+6+2+70 more expensive, but does it need extra filters?

Does anyone have experience using these or any other similar radios in
contest conditions?  Note, I can see w2sz/1 once I get above the trees
here.  Anything to stay away from?

Steve,
Please stack them Vertically so you can take advantage of the angles by
switching them.
Upper
Lower
Both in phase
Both out of phase.

And you can rotate the lower one independently for beaming in two
directtions at once.

.........did I mention the Array Solutions StackMatch will do this for
you.

Jay, WX0B
and I have everything to to gain by mentioning this. 8o)   Sorry folks.

At the 6Y2A multi-multi in the WPX last weekend, the combination of wind, surf 
and rain on the metal roof made it completely obvious which headset was the 
hands-down winner. On-the-ear sets like my beloved, light-weight Sennheisers 
were useless. Over-the-ear sets like the Sony and the Heil were usable but you 
still needed to turn the gain on a K2 up to the max. Ed Muns W0YK brought the 
new Bose active noise reduction set; the little one designed for jet 
passengers, not the big, heavy one designed for piston planes. You may have 
experienced these in American Airlines expensive seats recently. Putting them 
on was like walking into a soundproof room! Leaving them on was a pleasure. Ed 
even slept in them one night! Even if you aren't camping in the rain, these 
things will eliminate muffin fan
noise and dramatically reduce fatigue. Everyone agreed they want a pair. Other 
ANRs may also be good, but I'm not waiting to compare. This is so much better 
than anything else I've ever used that anything better would be at best just 
sprinkles on the icing on the cake. I'll find a way to mount my Heil boomset on 
them for my occasional foray into phone contesting. I sent a Fathers Day 
request off to my family mid-contest!

Dave,

I just sold my old FT-726R (50/144/432) at Dayton and bought a new 
FT-847.  My objective was to get a more modern VHF radio, more power, with 
possibly some satellite work.  The HF capability was not really a concern - 
the radio's primary use was for 432 MHz in our VHF contest efforts.

Since I've only had the radio a week, my only operation with it has been on 
75M with the MRRC club net, and about four hours operation in WPX CW on 
80-10.  I've not had the opportunity to use it on VHF/UHF yet.

My reference points are the FT1000D/MP radios here at K8CC.  Perhaps this 
is not a fair comparison considering the $$$ difference.

For ragchewing on SSB, the FT-847 sounds great to my ear, and received 
reports on the TX signal are good.  Perhaps this is due to the relatively 
wide ceramic filters which are standard equipment - a narrower 2.5 KHz 
Collins mechanical filter is available, or better yet the high quality 
INRAD crystal filter.  One interesting point is that there are separate SSB 
filters for TX and RX to support full-duplex satellite operation.  Yaesu 
says that replacing the SSB filter results in flatter, more natural 
transmit audio, however both RX and TX filters would get expensive.

For CW operation (at least on HF) the radio is a disappointment.  First of 
all, the headphone audio level clips before reaching a comfortable level 
when driving a Heil ProSet.  Patching the headphones into the speaker jack 
on the back was much better.  Second, the sidetone is not a pure tone but 
sounds like its DSP-generated with white noise superimposed on the 
waveform.  Its the worst-sounding sidetone I've heard since an unmuted R4C :-(

I forgot to get the CW filter when I bought the radio, but since my WPX 
operation was casual I figured I could get by with the DSP audio 
filtering.  WRONG!  AGC pumping from adjacent signals (the bands WERE 
crowded with strong signals) made it difficult to work anything but the 
louder stations.  I got so frustrated I popped open my FT-1000MP and stole 
the sub-receiver filter (same P/N) and stuffed it into the FT-847.  With 
the filter things were a LOT better.  The FT-847 only has one stage of 
narrow filtering, but using the internal DSP for the second filtering stage 
pretty good, but you'll never mistake it for a FT-1000MP.

I'm really sorry to say such negative things about the receiver because the 
radio overall is pretty cool.  Like the MP, the FT-847 has a comprehensive 
menu of items to personalize the radio to your tastes.  Its small in size, 
yet I've found the controls to be laid out pretty well.  Still, I think the 
Yaesu engineers should be taken to task for not including a CLEAR button 
for the RIT (oops, I mean "clarifier").

I've used K8MR's IC-746 (regular model, not a PRO) a good amount on VHF 
during the past three MRRC Field Day efforts with no complaints.  100W on 
144 is nice, cascaded CW filters are a plus, and according to the W2SZ web 
site, they use two IC-746s for their main stations on 144 from the mountain 
which says something.

The ARRL Members Only web site had the QST FT-847 review from 1998 which I 
found pretty accurate.  One thing to keep in mind is that early FT-847s had 
a crippled CATS system computer interface which could not report anything 
useful back to our logging programs.  Since then, Yaesu had added the 
capability to read operating frequency and mode, but you still can't do 
certain useful things like set the split VFO (at least its not documented 
in the manual).

In my case, 50W on 432 plus the satellite capability means I'm still glad I 
bought the FT-847.  We'll see how I feel about it after the June contest...

73,

Dave/K8CC

Dear WRTC2002 participant,

I am Risto Lund, OH3UU and my sphere of responsibilities covers log
checking for the WRTC2002 contest.

It lies in everyone's interest that we should perform this job as well as
possible. To ensure the most truthful results, we need your help. Please
get in touch with as many stations as possible among your circle of
friends and ask them to send their raw IARU contest logs to us,
immediately after the contest - not just the next day but within hours
after the contest. Even partial logs during the contest would be
appreciated.

We are not interested in how they did in the contest - we need those logs
just to verify contacts with WRTC team stations and to see what kind of
stations were taking part in the contest. From the QSOs, we will only use
time, call, band and mode. We are not interested in multipliers, dupes or
points. Every Little Pistol is valuable, but in general we are looking for
logs with a high number of QSOs, such as multi-op logs. All logs received
will naturally take part in the raffle for special WRTC prizes.


Logs should be sent to:  logs@wrtc2002.org

Please rest assured that these logs are not going to be forwarded to
outsiders for any purpose; they will be used strictly as part of the
WRTC2002 team log checking procedures.

Risto Lund, OH3UU

Thanks for all the comments.  Made a quick decision to go with the
ts-2000 today before the sale price runs out tomorrow.  

Deciding factors:  
Ft-847 - no vox, adding filters brings price up

Ic-746 - no 70cm - lots of contesters try to pass me there from 2m.

Ts-2000 - 100w on 2m, no extra filters needed

The only question I left open was if the ts-2000 would work with ct?
anyone know about that??  If it does, which radio do you pick?  Does it
work with NA or N1MM or other programs?

None of the usual sites have them. Emails to the usual guys produce no

YU1AO was EU winner in 1993 Phone. I never received a single note, or any
award, from anyone. They promissed nice trophy for Eu winner, but even my
emails to "the usual guys" resulted no replies. I was telling to myself -
OK, you are just a guy they don't like.... and now you puzzled me!

Just reviewed my UBN and as I expected, most of the USA multis I called for
the mult did not log me. There has to be a trick to this; I even asked many
to please log for the mult. Problem is, not only do I loose the mult, but I
lose qso points I never had. Stateside qsos are for mults only, correct? So
why when a stateside multi doesn't log me do I loose 6 points per q? Common
sense should indicate the big multi didn't call me but rather I called them;
the error must be on their end so why do I get points deducted?

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Did I get slimmed?
Message-ID: <005501c2090d$a2769360$4463e2d1@b1cppb42>

Hi folks;

While operating tonight as XL3WN, I had a station reply to my CQ with the 
callsign "A50W", read "A-five-zero-W".  It definitely was not "AH0W", as I had 
him repeat his call a few times to make sure I had it right.  Needless to say, 
this would be a new one for me.  He gave a QSL route of CE7-something, but 
ducked out before I could get a complete copy on the route.

I'm pretty sure I got slimmed.
Can anyone help me with this?

I very much enjoyed working all the Scandanavians in SAC over the past 5 or
6 years. I managed to garner high US score several times, but never received
as much as a piece of paper from the governing bodies. I have found the
results from most of the contests on the web, but wanted Kele to know that
his situation is not unique.

>YU1AO was EU winner in 1993 Phone. I never received a single note, or any
award, from anyone. They promissed nice trophy for Eu winner, but even my
emails to "the usual guys" resulted no replies. I was telling to myself -
OK, you are just a guy they don't like.... and now you puzzled me!

(What ever happened to the results for the 1998 Scandinavian Activity
Contest
? It seems as if they have been lost in some big Black Hole on the Internet.
None of the usual sites have them. Emails to the usual guys produce no
answers. Were they ever published ? If so, can someone tell me where to find
them ? Tim EI8IC)

Naw, "91" would be a great check.  Same with "99."  Just send
"NA" or "NN."  Then we could start the thread on cut numbers
again.  73

Hey why didn't I think of that before!  I'm one of those "lucky 55ers"
and I could have been taking even more advantage of it by sending "EE"
all these years...  :-)

Prior to operating in the Armadillo Run years back I thought anyone who
stuck an HF rig in their car probably also wore a pocket protector and
thought working A station in Canada was rare DX...i.e. "get a life".

When I followed the Texans as they covered the humongous state of Texas -
with about four times as many counties as Florida, I had a ball - they were
cracker jack CW ops the likes of K5LZO and K5ZD and the anticipation of
waiting for them to cross a county line and the ensuing QRQ pileups was an
absolute blast!  I had a scribbled all over a photocopied list of the Texas
counties which was pencilled out as the weekend went on - mind you this was
still paper logging days!

Several years ago when K1TO landed in Florida a spark was lit to have the
Florida Contest Group sponsor the ailing Florida QSO Party...at a historic
meeting of the FCG we brainstormed the framework for the FQP - there were
ensuing sessions in internet chat rooms (tnx Ron) where the pros and cons of
other state QSO Parties and our proposed rules evolved.

This past weekend I truly felt like the FQP had come of age.  N4KM and I
covered 35 counties and hardly had any dead airtime - think we had once or
twice all weekend long where we called CQ 4 consecutive times without a
response...when the dust settled and I added things up we had 1955 QSOs
gross...of course when you are in a state along with K1TO you learn that
being second is the norm!  K1TO and N4TO had 2195 QSOs from 44 counties...

This is more QSOs than we make in SS, or the NAQP...perhaps there is
something to this.

I would like to to formally thank everyone who made the effort to get on and
work us this past weekend - I am still exhausted but on a post-contest
high...from a QSO Party!
AVERAGING A HUNDRED AN HOUR WILL DO THAT TO YOU!

Thanks again, guys...as a fellow FCG member said to me this morning - "this
goes down as one of my top ten ham radio experiences" - without a doubt!

We have found the FQP to be a big aide in our membership recruitment and
also a good way to expose "Joe Ham" to contesintg...nothing like starting
off being rare, eh?

I hope to get to a rig this weekend to help support the fledgling New
England QSO Party - perhaps the state QSO Party is our method to keep new
blood entering into contesting...which is still the funnest thing in Ham
Radio!

Our club has a number of members that contribute to the FQPs
success...volunteers who check the logs, colunteers who key in paper logs,
certicate makers, plaque orderers, county coordinators...it is a club
effort - another healthy thing!

The message below is typical of ones that have been circulating regarding
the FQP, it is fun chasing the mobiles - not unlike a clean sweep is in SS!

73,

Jim, K4OJ

We all know how humble and reserved Jim is.  He won't tell you, but I will:
He failed to mention that he was the ONLY operator to work ALL 255 Texas
counties in that Armadillo Run -- 254 real counties plus a special county
proclaimed by the Texas Governor as Armadillo County (it followed the Texas
Independence Trail).

For that achievement, Texas DX Society flew Jim to Houston for the
ComVention where he was presented with his award (and got to meet all of
us).

Now.  I look back on the past weekend with regret yet again.  Due to other
commitments away from radios, I never got a chance to get on a play in the
FQP.  But, I swear I will never be FQP-less again!

73,

Message-ID: <3CD1A2E6.8BEDE8BB@tcac.net>

Have any contesters tried the new FS-2 foot switch?  My FS-1 just went
belly up after 10 years of faithful service.  It would be simple to fix
as the microswitch just needs replacing.  But it may be time to try
something new.

DX Contest Certificate TODAY.  Just 3 years after the contest!

Now how about the 1993, 1994, and 1995 paper?

KM3T reports receiving the plaque for 1998 (I think) win in the WPX SSB
contest from my station using his callsign.

So, I guess Steve is working on catching up with them, or he is tired of

Subject: [CQ-Contest] The KLEZ virus and contesters
Message-ID: <016e01c1f296$e85fe760$3f502104@vz.dsl.genuity.net>

For several weeks, I have been receiving emails telling me that my email
address is sending out virus-laden emails.  In fact, my computer is not
sending them, but another computer infected with a virus, likely belonging
to a contester, is sending out emails and using email addresses from all
over that computer to 'spoof' many email addresses, including mine as the
"from" address.  Many of the addresses I see being spoofed belong to other
contesters.  Also, the subject lines of the messages include things like "VA
QSO PARTY" which tells me it has to be from a contester's computer.

Everyone should be running a virus protection program on their computers.
If you are not, you are likely to be infected already by one or more of
these email based viruses.  Please, please obtain a virus scanner/monitor
program for your computer.  There are many available and some are even free.
Part of the responsible way to run a "connected" computer is having virus
protection, and updating it frequently with the data that enables it to
continue to protect your computer.  These updates are often called
"signature files".

In addition to running and properly maintaining a virus protection program,
a utility is available that can assist in detecting and repairing the
infection from the KLEZ virus(as well as some others).

The program is called "Kleztool.com" and you can download it from the
contesting.com website in the file libraries at this address:

http://www.contesting.com/libraries/Utilities

After you unzip the program,  issue the following command at the dos window
prompt:
(Don't shut down Windows.)

KLEZTOOL /scanfiles

It will scan your entire hard drive and will report if it finds any infected
files.

Here's the technical stuff on what it does:

Hi Gang

The upcoming topic for the CTT&T column is for little pistols.  I would
appreciate your comments on this subject. Please reply directly and thanks
for your help. Also be sure your call sign is in you email and please get
it to me by May 6. Thanks again!

Topic for July 2002 

Best weapons for little pistols

Little pistols, what are your best contest weapons? Do you have an antenna
that really gets out on one band? Is it an operating technique? Maybe there
is a time and band for certain contests where you are really effective at
making QSOs. What contests do you feel you can be most effective in?

Thanks & 73 - Gary, W9XT

I'm experiencing the same problem.  See:

  http://www.ng3k.com/virusalert.html

I don't think most of this is the result of virus 
infections, but rather malicious E-mail address 
forgery (or "spoofing" as it's commonly called).  E-
mail spoofing is all to easy to do and insofar as I 
have been able to determine, there's very little that 
can be done to stop it.  And the malevolent hackers 
out there have become much more creative in their use 
of the Subject: field.

I'm seen many other ham E-mail addresses spoofed as 
well and I receive between 5 and 10 of these messages 
a day, on average.

So everyone should be very careful with incoming E-
mails.  Don't assume that because an E-mail 
**appears** to come from someone you know and trust 
that it does not contain a virus.

For my part, I have my mail reader set to NOT 
download any message greater than 20Kb in size.  I 
use a freeware product called "Popcorn" to look at 
the message headers of large messages while they're 
still on the incoming mailspool.  To date, I have 
seen very few large inbound messages that were 
anything other than malicious viruses.

Bill/NG3K

I've had a hard time with the commercially avaiable footswitches.

I change my body position a lot during a contest.

Constantly trying to keep track of where the footswitch is in relation to my
new foot position was a hassle.

Years ago, I took a 3' long piano hinge, a couple of springs, a momentary
switch and two pieces of 36"x6"x1" (LWD) lumber and made my own.  Works
great.

After my FS-1 went bad I pcikup a sewing machine foot swtich.
I works great. Less resistance to push, better angle for foot, wider, more
stable on floor (moves less and never over turns) and as a bonus  it
actually has two switches (which I have yet to figure a use for) a right
and left.
Less than $5 at fleamarket.

The logging program still works.  Enter your call and you will get the list of 
your QSOs.
I think they mean that they don't want anyone sending them e-mails about 
specific log entries.

They may have good reason.  4 of my contacts with them are not in the log.  I 
know other people who say their QSOs are also not in the log. I think they have 
a lot of logging errors and are getting some heat about it.  I guess you just 
have to work some DXpeditions three times on each band and mode to be sure of 
getting in their log.

Message-ID: <20020503174113.33390.qmail@web10505.mail.yahoo.com>

 Sounds like K4OJ has caught the mobile QSO party bug and joined the
likes of K8MR, K8CC, W1NN and others who will be making their annual
treks during MQP,OQP,FQP,PQP etc....  I caught the bug a few years ago
when I did the MQP the first time with K9TM. Since then I have made my
annual treks during April and August for the MQP and OQP. It's going to
be a little tougher now that I have moved to GA but the GQP has pretty
good activity so look for me then. FL is only about 250 miles away from
the new QTH so maybe I will make it down south an join the fun down
there in 2003???

 For those of you who are station-less ( or don't have a real one like
me) this is the perfect fix for curing the contesting blues....

        WPX guest operators/calls sometimes create problems which may
differ for plaques versus certificates since they are taken care of by
two different entities for WPX contests.  CQ Magazine mails out all WPX
certificates and they send them automatically only to the HOLDER of the
call...not the operator.  If you think you are due a certificate for
a WPX contest using a different call than your own, first check that
the holder of that call did not already receive it. 

        N8BJQ takes care of WPX plaques and he will do whatever you ask.  
I asked him to send my plaque directly to me but I suspect he sends them 
to the call holder unless instructed otherwise.  For anyone who has 
problems, contact Steve directly at  n8bjq@erinet.com  since he is not
on 
this reflector.  I've always found him to be very responsive.

I suffered KLEZ attack few weeks ago. Unfortunately, it was a week after
setting new comp, and no antivirus program installed at that time.

The mail was received from a known sender, within email ham list. However,
his address title was little different than usual, but it didn;t ring any
bells to me. This email came to me on March 5th at about 2300. KLEZ attacked
at 0000 on March 6th (as he promissed :-)) and I noticed funny noises
between my root disk and remote one, as they made love... I shut them down
and waited for  the morning explanation from F6GNZ who warned us that Klez
was there.

Results = all my JPG, DOC, XLS and TXT files were gonne.

Now I use NAV2002 regularly updated, Netscape rather than Microsoft, and
still registered one KLez attempt few days ago.

So, better be very carefull.

I use the same switch- the second one is hooked to a second radio- SO2R
the cheap way!

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Foot switches
Message-ID: <002101c1f30f$183574a0$0100a8c0@joe>

Hi all,

I noted with interest Richard's query about the FS2 footswitch and Dale's
piano man solution. Interesting.

I noticed the FS2 has the hinge at the heel. Although it seems to make
sense, it's always seemed more fatiguing to my legs to have the switch in
that position than to simply use my toes since the other way requires moving
muscles all the way up to the knee.

Has anyone ever experimented with non-footswitch, non-VOX alternatives? As a
touch typist, the heel of my hand never strays too far from the keyboard but
like Dale, I've been frustrated by having to reposition the footswitch in
the middle of a run.

Perhaps it's worth trying something that can serve both as an ergonomic tool
(to keep the heel of your hand in the right position) and as a PTT device. I
hate VOX. Or perhaps a shoe like some bank tellers wear that contains a
switch to set off the holdup alarm. Not sure if those are even in use
anymore.

Perhaps a pressure sensor on the back of the operating chair. LBTT, as it
were. (Lean Back To Talk.) I often tend to lean back when CQing anyway.

Then again, there's always the clapper. Clap once, PTT on, clap twice, PTT
off!

OK, that last one was TIC (tongue in cheek). Also, anyone ever come up with
a useful function for additional switches on the fs? Mine (a Wollensack
dicating machine unit from Fair Radio Sales) has the main body of the
footswitch as one (in my case, PTT) switch and two switches at each side. It
seems neat, but it also seems that any additional functions would have to be
closely related to the act of PTTing, since you're likely to do that by
mistake anyway when you go for the other switches.

Any thoughts?

KM3T reports receiving the plaque for 1998 (I think) win in the WPX SSB
contest from my station using his callsign.

So, I guess Steve is working on catching up with them, or he is tired of

I've been using foot switches for over forty years.
I always have just picked them up at swapfests, etc.
I don't know what the Heil switch costs, but I'll bet I've
bought mine a lot cheaper.
They are usually made from a plain old spst microswitch.
I saw a hint that came from N4MM a lot of years ago about a knee switch,
and I built one...hard job that. I velcro'd one of my foot switches to the 
inside part of
my desk. If I don't wanna use my foot, I just move my knee a bit.
Also, I always have at least 2 foot switches on the floor, in case I want 
to move my feet around.
Another thing. A friend of mine used an old J-38 key screwed to a board. 
Samo-samo.

I had forgot all about it-- my mother and grandmother, both professional
seamstresses, both had the "knee" switches on their commercial sewing machines.

I think the problem is that people don't hear the DX and only get a couple
of letters back and think that they have a QSO   There are still some who
can't copy their own call on CW
Tlhey are the ones who are sending on top of everyone,

The logging program still works.  Enter your call and you will get the list
of your QSOs.
I think they mean that they don't want anyone sending them e-mails about
specific log entries.

They may have good reason.  4 of my contacts with them are not in the log.
I know other people who say their QSOs are also not in the log. I think they
have a lot of logging errors and are getting some heat about it.  I guess
you just have to work some DXpeditions three times on each band and mode to
be sure of getting in their log.

Message-ID: <20020504.014055.-1346983.5.n6ki@juno.com>

Dale,

        I just replaced a very comfortable, durable and ergonomically
comfortable
footswith that lasted me over 10+  years of contesting.
        After considering many switches including the Heil FS-2,
here's one you should consider and why I chose it.

Linemaster  Model Gem-V2
www.linemaster.com

860 974-1000

Circular - Easy to hit from all angles

Perfect touch - you can lightly rest your foot on edge of it
                           and not false trigger but then a light
additional amount of additional pressure
                           keys it and no "cramped" or "tired" foot as
the hours wane on

Great Weight and Non Skid corrugated base  - Will not move around too
easily
so no worry about it not staying in position.

Nice appearance with chrome ringed edge and easy hit circular top target
area.

I expect it will easily last 10+ years for heavy contest use.

You can purchase with or without cable. I found the supplied cable listed
on teh web
page to be too heavy and cumbersome so I installed my own thinner and
very flexible
cable and saved another $6 on the price.

The Gem-V2 will cost you just under $30 including shipping/handling.

Note: Since they normally have a $100 minimum, I requested my switch
as a sample for 60 day evaluation and had it mailed to me at my work
address.
That way you avoid the $100 minimum 

You may also want to check with your contest buddies or club members and 
order enough to meet the $100 minimum order. 

I have no pecuniary interest in Linemaster  Co. Products

73, Dennis N6KI

The CQ Worldwide Contest has a provision under the club scoring that
DXpedition scores are PERCENTAGED to the number of club members on the
Dxpedition.

I cannot find such wording in the Rules for the WPX contest.

Does WPX allow the same percentaged (toward club scores) scores for
different club members within the group?

Y'all won't believe this , but.....I lost all the files for FQP in TRLog!
While I only made 105 contacts, it seems that was a fairly good 
score for about 4 hours work and the shape the bands were in
at VE7QO. 

I was going to be smart and make a Cabrillo file, got as far as the 
log.cbr file, remembered that I had forgotten to set the offset time to
7 hours, so logs were in PDT for about 60, then in correct GMT for
 the rest. So I said, oh yeah!..... POST has a facility to rectify this
so I blithely deleted Log.cbr and proceeded to do the POST routine
.
The answer came back, which said, no contacts in log.dat!!!! 
Yup! that was correct....somehow, not only the log.dat file 
information but also the restart.bin got deleted...ugh!! @#!^&*)X

Sorry gang, no way I can recover the stuff, where-ever it went. Not 
a thing in Recycle bin and the old DOS commands 'undelete' don't
work in fancy Win98SE!  So I can't take the SOABLP winner's
place in BC and maybe even in Canada, having looked at all
the scores  drat it!!! 73.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] E-QSL
Message-ID: <4.2.2.20020505234127.00a45b70@mail.verizon.net>

After a long time without looking, I finally decided to come up and look at 
the CQ-Contest Archives to see if other contesters were being sent the Klez 
virus through the "back door" as I was.  After receiving some 
two-hundred-twenty-one virus attachments since March 20, attached to 
messages from Mail Administrators informing me that messages I had never 
sent could for one reason or another not be delivered to the addressees I 
never sent messages to, I am frankly beginning to think that this joke is 
getting a bit long in the tooth.

I did find a couple of posts about that subject, but what I really found 
interesting were the extensive posts about e-qsl'ing, including the 
excellent posts by KR1G and WC1M describing some of what is actually, 
rather than theoretically, going on in the design of LoTW.

I just went to eQSL.cc and checked the list of eQSLs waiting for me on that 
site.  I didn't make an exact count but I can see that eQSLs from several 
hundred stations await me there.

Last month I celebrated 50 continuous years as a licensed Radio 
Amateur.  During all those years I have been continuously active under one 
callsign or another.  I have always enjoyed QSLing very much. I gladly 
answer all QSLs that come to me; direct QSLs are answered direct whether or 
not SASE is included, and bureau cards are answered via the Bureau.  I love 
collecting QSLs and one wall of my home study is completely taken up with 
steel file drawers containing the QSLs I have received in alphabetical order.

Let me first of all submit that eQSL.cc accomplishes several fine goals: 
(1) It allows people who don't like QSLing to feel that they have 
nevertheless not impeded a fellow radio amateur in his/her quest for 
awards, (2) allows Radio Amateurs in countries where the national radio 
societies run bureaus which will not forward cards to non-members to get 
around that block by receiving confirmations through eQSL.cc if they don't 
want to be members of their national societies for whatever reason, (3) 
allows contest stations to QSL pre-emptively without overloading the QSL 
bureau system with unwanted cards, and (4) allows people to QSL without 
going to the undeniable expense of confirming QSOs by snail mail, a 
prohibitive expense for many of our fellow hams, particularly those of 
limited means living in rare DXCC entities.

Nevertheless, after sincerely attempting to use the eQSL.cc system without 
compromising my own personal QSLing standards, I have come to the 
conclusion that the eQSL.cc system is designed PRIMARILY for people who 
find QSLing an unpleasant chore, and NOT for people like me who love QSLing 
in the traditional way.

While I have learned that in the computer age there are many computer 
programs out there that do not permit me to do things exactly as I would 
like, and that the computer age is a time in which one constantly makes 
compromises with program writers who don't see things exactly the way a 
particular user does, I nevertheless strongly feel that in order to fully 
enjoy the use of any computer program, the user needs to feel that he, the 
user, and NOT the computer program he is using, is in control.

My inviolable personal standards for QSLing, finely honed over more than 50 
years of experience as an SWL and licensed Radio Amateur, are as follows:

1) Every new non-lower-48 callsign I work from K3ZO is sent an attractive 
gold-leaf QSL specially printed for me in Thailand, my XYL Somporn's 
country of birth.

2) Any other QSO is confirmed only after the following conditions have been 
met:

a) I have in my hand a printed QSL confirming the contact in question from 
the requesting station.

b) I have consulted my own log and have confirmed that the QSO in question 
took place.  Where there is disagreement about the time or date of QSO, I 
will search my log for a QSO with the requesting station on the band and 
mode in question, and if such a QSO exists I will confirm that QSO in my reply.

c) In a situation where it appears that I got the other station's call 
wrong, I will exercise my own judgment about whether it seems that in fact 
it was the requesting station that did indeed work me, and will act 
accordingly.

eQSL.cc makes it difficult for me to adhere to the above principles in the 
following ways:

1) In asking me to upload my entire log before I can use the system, it 
makes it possible for someone to receive a confirmation satisfactory to 
them without providing me a confirmation satisfactory to me.

2) The visual QSL samples provided by eQSL.cc are certainly attractive and 
are definitely satisfactory to me in fulfilling the need to add a printed 
card to my files of QSLs, whether or not they count for particular 
awards.  However, the process of downloading and printing out a QSL from 
eQSL.cc is much more time-consuming than, for example, handling a bunch of 
cards just received from the Bureau.  For every card downloaded and printed 
out from eQSL.cc, I estimate I can answer 20 bureau QSLs in the same time 
frame.

Therefore I am sadly moved to announce that if anyone needs a confirmation 
from me for a QSO we have had, it will be necessary to send me a real QSL 
by whatever means.  The way eQSL.cc is presently configured, it is simply 
too cumbersome for me to use efficiently and still adhere to my own 
personal QSLing standards.

73, Fred, K3ZO

TR Log lets you use a footswitch for a variety of functions.  you could 
wire the main switch to the ptt line of the rig, and then use the secondary 
switch for any of those, including a dupe check, starting a CQ, moving the 
rig frequency to the next higher unworked station on the bandmap, swapping 
radios, etc.

Try You nearest Singer Sewing machine centre or look for an old
Dictaphone machine foot peddle
 both are very durable
have two switch contacts spaced well enough so that  even big feet
can handle 'em .... re-wire and le voila there it is.
Have had one for about 15/16 years never had a problem with it

Mine is actually a "thigh" switch.  I bought a package of the Radio Shack,
large, momentary button switches and mounted them in small "Rubbermaid" cups
(the wife wouldn't let me use the good Tupperware stuff").

After attaching a cord with proper mating plug to interface with my radio's
PTT circuit, I mounted the switch assembly to the inside of the knee well on
the desk using the wife's hot glue gun.  Boy, those craft tools sure come in
handy.

I have had to take the assembly apart two times, a couple of years apart, to
clean the contacts.  A better quality switch would probably last a lot
longer.

I have a foot switch made in a like manner, in a "Rubbermaid" dish mounted
on a sloped piece of 1" x 4" board, with a piece of 2" x 4" under the rear
to lift the switch to a comfortable angle and a piece of 2" x 4" at the
front to rest the foot on until the PTT action is required.  Looks horrible
but works great.

Good luck de Milt, N5IA

Here is a free utility for Windows, DOS, and Linux:
    
     http://www.qsl.net/ka5wss/logconv/

It will read CT7, CT8, and CT9 format log files, and will output to ADIF.
It knows about certain contests and takes advantage of that knowledge 
is making better ADIF files.

Quack's
I have used VOX for years, however my old foot sw was a piece of 1 x 6 with
a small micro sw attached to one side and a thin piece of fiberglass sheet
,( mine was and old devider for a notebook) attached with thumb tacks.
Very soft touch only took a toe to actuate and easy to move around under the
operating position.
