Why?

Personally, I prefer fast vox.

You can stand up, or put your feet anywhere you want, without
worrying about where the footswitch is.

CQ machine audio will activate the vox, so there's no separate PTT
interface to worry about there.

You don't have to deal with the RFI-prone parallel port for 
computer PTT, if the computer is your CQ machine.

Same for cw. 

Simpler is better.

Matt,

I own both radios.  I've had the IC-765 since 1989; it is one of my 
favorite radios which is why I still keep it around.  I bought the TS-850 
in 1998 as a traveling radio for Caribbean trips.  Both are excellent 
radios; the consideration of one vs. the other may be personal preference 
more than anything else.  Here's my thinking.

Both radios are excellent on CW.

IC-765 Advantages:

- Simpler, larger controls
- Slots for cascaded CW filters in both wide (~500) and narrow (~250)
- Standard on-board tuner (helpful for operation without an amplifier)
- Less internally-generated noise
- Separate keyer paddle and straight key (for computer keying) inputs
- Internal power supply (convenient for home use)
- Receive path brought thru jacks on rear panel (good for beverages of BPFs)
- Convenient connector types (RCA) for things like amp relay keying

TS-850 Advantages:

- CW reception on either LSB or USB
- CW spot function for zero beating
- External power supply (use a light switcher for traveling)

Some of the IC-765's advantages can be incorporated into the TS-850 thru 
modification.  Whether this is acceptable is up to you.

A couple things I don't like about the TS-850 are its use of DIN connectors 
for a lot of common connections, some of these are wierdo configurations 
that I defy you to find here in the USA.

My biggest gripe about the TS-850 is the fact that the !@$%^#&^ RIT cannot 
be cleared; the control has to be re-centered or the RIT function turned 
off.  Yes, I know that with an RS-232 connection your logging program could 
clear the RIT if it wanted to, but do that a few too many times and you'll 
find the pot at the end of the range.  Yeah - it's a pot like a TS-830 - 
1980's technology.

Although your questioned focused on CW, I'll add that IMHO the TS-850 is 
the better SSB radio.  The receive bandwidth on SSB is better than the 
IC-765, and the TS-850 has a real RF speech processor with adjustments 
where you need them.  However, the RIT still sucks.

FWIW

Message-ID: <5.1.1.6.2.20020901092555.02721a90@pop.dc2.adelphia.net>

I've been wondering. When running in contests, I've noticed that sometimes 
stations answering tend to be .1-.2 kHz higher or lower than my 
frequency.  When this pattern emerges, if I check in the "opposite 
direction" I quite often find a relatively loud signal close to my 
frequency on that side.

I'm guessing that people are tuning me in and tending to "lean" away from 
the QRM, and it often seems as if I can improve my run rate by shifting 
frequency a little in the direction that the majority of callers are 
"coming from."

Am I just describing something that everyone else knows about, or am I all 
wet, or is this useful?

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Cheap QSL file cabinets
Message-ID: <006f01c251c6$3938e680$942bca97@oemcomputer>

Over the years, the cost of storing QSL cards has continued to rise and today a 
two drawer 4" x 6" file cabinet can cost $50 or more.  Looking for an 
alternative, I checked out the local OfficeMax and came up with what seems to 
be a viable alternative at a much lower cost.

OfficeMax currently has a sale on a plastic 6-drawer IRIS "Mega Chest".  It 
turn out thst these drawers are 5 1/2" high, just enough for most QSLs.  They 
are also 13' or so internal width, just wide enough for two rows of QSLs.  
Total cost for one of these 6-drawer units is now $40 - and each drawer holds 
almost as many QSLs as the steel $60 two drawer cabinet.

To finish off this system, I use red or orange 4"x6" file cards (two cards per 
divider, to give some strength to the divider) between each country and 
sometimes within the same country, if there are a lot of cards, e.g. DL, UA, F, 
EA, JA, I, etc.  OfficeMax also has somestick on label tabs that I put on top 
of the divider cards.  It seems to work fine.

Anyone wanna buy an old 8-high 2-drawer filing system?

This has been going on for years and years, and is simply a way some
use to "muscle" in on your run frequency. Moving higher will only
result in the "grabber" also moving higher, and very soon, you'll find
yourself unable to move in either direction.

Hi Ed -- Oh, sure, I know about the slide in close and squeeze tactic -- 
I've been in a few frequency fights too.  But I was thinking of the 
more-or-less innocent situation.  For example, I'm on 28002 and somebody in 
Michigan is on 28001.7, both running Europe.  We MIGHT hear each other, if 
the band is open wide and we had time to listen for backscatter, but it's 
more likely we just beat each other up in Europe without knowing it, at 
least for a while.  In that situation, it's my impression that a 100 Hz 
tweak can make a useful difference.

There is always the big circular file, holds lots of QSLs, but no indexing

I would say that they simply zero beat poorly.

If you are running at a good rate, I wouldn't move to accomodate the
callers.  They seem to be calling just fine, no?

>> I would say that they simply zero beat poorly.

I've seen a lot of cw ops at various field day setups set the i.f.
shift for a comfortable tone, and then tune to the s-meter peak,
which is usually not the same as the cw offset.

Also, the cw pitch control can get you in trouble if the sidetone
does not track with it.

And tone-deafness plays a part sometimes, I'm sure.

I've been fortunate not to have experienced any deliberate "grabbing"
of a run frequency as described in this discussion.  I always assume
that they just couldn't hear me (lp<100w),  and I move on.  Or I switch
to s&p.  No harm done.  Keeps my b.p. down.

I analogize this to a "bump and run" move in racing - frowned upon,
but in the heat of battle it happens.  And sometimes the tactic can bite
you back.  Sometimes it's deliberate,  sometimes accidental.

Sorry to start another "vs." thread, but I really want to know people's 
opinions of the 850 vs. 940, as I seriously have been mulling over whether to 
replace my 940 with an 850. Have financial restraints here, and a used 850 
can be had for what I think I could get for my 940, so what opinions does the 
contest world hold on this subject? Got my 940 equipped like I want it- Inrad 
filters, slow tuning mod, computer interface...and it works great, no 
problems. Do I keep what I got, and stop worrying about it, or is the 850 a 
better rig? Thanks in advance. Jim, KZ1M.

Well, not necessarily. Pete did say that the offsets were clustered in one
direction, which doesn't sound like simply poor zero beating. He also said
that his run rate improved when he moved. There's his answer right there,
I'd say.

I know darn well that when I'm S&Ping and the guy I'm trying to work is
close to a bigger signal, I'll often lean away from the big signal to
improve our chances. I think Pete is just reporting the other side of the
same situation.

Also, Pete didn't ask what to do with the information, he just asked whether
we thought he had made a valid observation. There's a difference between the
information you can glean from the situation and your response to that
information. Depending on your station, your goals, propagation, etc., in
one case you might move in order to improve your rate, but in another you
might elect to stay to protect your frequency. If you have the strongest
signal on the band and you intend to be there for a few more hours, maybe
you can afford to be stubborn and stay right where you are. But if the
station that's a few hundred Hz from you and in your skip zone turns out to
be K3LR or W3LPL, maybe the smart thing to do is move.

Hi Jim and all

I went over the same question recently - I bought a TS-940 to use as a
second radio
beside my 1000MP, and was very disappointed with it - I've now replaced the
940
with an 850, having had an 850 in the early 90's.   The 850 is a much better
radio all
round.  The 940 looked and felt like a good solid radio, but it's electrical
performance
was poor.

TS-940's were manufactured between 1985 and 1992 (approximately) and are now
showing lots of  faults - they are mostly now inherently unreliable, but
maybe not as bad as
the TS-930's.  It was a great radio in its day, but things have moved on.
Buy the 850,
fit 1.8kHz SSB and 250Hz CW INRAD filters (not wider ones) and you won't
regret it for a
moment !

Subject: [CQ-Contest] TS-850 vs. TS-940
Message-ID: <OF78490696.786366B3-ON85256C29.004ABBED@ey.com>

Just my opinion, I think that the TS-940 is very limited by its filter 
selection for the cw op.  For SSB I really liked mine and found it very 
effective. 

-  Your filters on cw are either in or out, and there is no ability to 
switch from 500 hz to 250 hz, which I do all the time in cw contesting. 

-  Also, I don't think that there is provision for cascading 250 hz 
crystal filters. 

-  On my rig, which was tested to be in 100% good order, using the 
bandwidth narrowning feature was not as good as having the right filter at 
hand.

I ended up physically installing the 250hz filter, which meant that my cw 
filter modes were either wiiiide open, or very tight.  I didn't like that 
and sold the rig, which I otherwise really liked.

I think that this criticism doesn't apply outside of dx/contesting, and as 
a general rig it was very nice.

Sorry to start another "vs." thread, but I really want to know people's 
opinions of the 850 vs. 940, as I seriously have been mulling over whether 
to 
replace my 940 with an 850. Have financial restraints here, and a used 850 

can be had for what I think I could get for my 940, so what opinions does 
the 
contest world hold on this subject? Got my 940 equipped like I want it- 
Inrad 
filters, slow tuning mod, computer interface...and it works great, no 
problems. Do I keep what I got, and stop worrying about it, or is the 850 
a 
better rig? Thanks in advance. Jim, KZ1M.

We have two 940's here at the so2r setup and have had not one problem,
inherently or otherwise.  The rigs were both purchased used.  They perform
flawlessly.  I don't have a 950 to compare to, but for my money they are
very nice rigs.  One has been upgraded with the variable tuning mod, and
both have added cw filters.  Most of the use here is contesting, cw and rtty

Not a technical report, but a 4 year on air trial.

Send ONLY TXT files using K1EA, N6TR, K8CC, EI5DI, WriteLog or any ASCII files. 
The file's name should contain a call sign of participant (yourcall.all and 
yourcall.sum). The log can be shown either by bands or time. Each QSO must

exceeding 2% of the total number of his contacts will be disqualified.  The 
points of contacts logged with incorrect information will be lost a triple 
penalty will be applied.

 

-         The maximum allowed time difference between QSOs in two logs is 3 
minutes. If it can be unambiguously determined which station logged the times 
incorrectly, only the points claimed by that station will be deducted. 

 

-         Packet is allowed for everybody. Self-spotting is prohibited.

 

-         The highest maximum allowed power for any classes during the contest 
is 1 kW.

 

-         Only one signal may be transmitted at any times by anyone. Stations 
braking this rule will be disqualified.

 

-         Only those multipliers will be accepted, which either have submitted 
logs or are reported in at least two other logs.

 

-         Band and mode changes are allowed only after 10 minutes after the 
first QSO on that band and mode. The 10 minutes period starts at the first 
contact logged in that band and mode. 

 

-         The decision of the contest committee is final.

 

 

 

The contest committee maintains the right to appoint observers for the contest. 
The observers document and report suspected cheating to the Contest Committee. 
Based on the evidence provided the Committee has the right  to disqualify 
participants. The callsigns of stations and those of their operators 
disqualified for proven cheating will published to the international contesting 
community and they loose their right to participate in the contest for 5 years.

Message-ID: <200209031822.g83IMQv08907@loja.kkn.net>

One of the things I really like about the TS850 over the "bigger" radios, is how
well they sit side-by-side in a SO2R setup.  I offer the following picture 
instead
of 1000 words.

Other than perhaps a pair of K2s, I don't know how you can get that much 
station in 
that small of a space.

O.K.....What's "EXPANDED"?

I see nothing on the site that has not normally been in the magazine.

Nothing new...just a transfer of information.  In short, a reduction
of contest coverage.

Even the league gives us more.

I'm appalled by the lack of controversy on this topic.

        CQ just published the World and USA All-Time Records for 
both CW and SSB current through the 2001 contests at:

http://www.cq-amateur-radio.com/WW%20DX%20All-Time%20Records2.html

These are the pages normally published in CQ Magazine and are not
the records by US Call Area and by Country which are at the old
www.cqww.com site.  Hopefully those will be updated soon.

        They also added the Expanded SSB Results for the 2001
contest but have not yet added the same for the CW contest.  See
here for the Expanded SSB Results:

Hi all,

Interesting sidebar to the discussions of "contesting rigs".

In the Sep/Oct NCJ (which arrived today) there's a great article (part 1 of 2 
parts) which is a play by play of the seesawing between the teams which 
eventually finished as the top 5 in WRTC 2002. In a sidebar to that article, 
the hardware was listed. There were 10 radios which were selected by the 
individual team members for their own use. 

The envelope please ...

1 was an FT1000MP, Mark V
1 was an FT1000D
1 was a Kenwood TS-850, 
and 7 were FT1000MP's

Interesting huh?

73 de Bill, W1HIJ/6
and no, I don't work for Yaesu, but I do own an FT1000D and an FT990.

I have had multiple PLL failures on both of my 940s.  Best I can tell
they're the result of bad solder connections but until I get around to
retouching *all* the joints on the RF board probably won't know.  

It's unfortunate as when they work, they really do work quite well.

As N6TR posted last week, an error was found in the original reporting of the 
ARRL International DX CW results.  The error was not as widespread as 
originally thought and in fact affected only a total of eight station's scores: 
AA1K, K0EJ, K1AR, K3ANS, K8CC, K9NW, N2RM and W4ZV.   The scores for those 
stations have been recalculated and will be accurately shown in the results 
pages on the ARRL Web when they are opened (once the corrections are made to 
the various files involved.)

Thank you for your patience as we addressed this problem We apologize for the 
problem. Thanks also to the quick eyes of W4ZV who brought the problem to our 
attention, and thanks to N6TR for quickly identifying the problem and 
correcting it.

Message-ID: <68.251da44f.2aa75dbc@aol.com>

Thanks to all for your insightful and poignant inputs for this column.  We 
have an interesting topic for this issue and I look forward to your 
responses.

The topic is "The Nickel Fix That Saved Your Bacon".  I will explain the 
origin of the "nickel fix" at the beginning of the article, but I am 
basically looking for inexpensive and innovative ways that you solved 
last-minute problems and went on to successfully complete a contest.

The "cheap fixes' may include that clamp-on RF choke that kept RF out of the 
computer, the bypass capacitor you added to your rotor box to keep the 
indicator needle from swinging with your RF voice peaks, that post-it note 
that reminded you to watch the grid current on the amp, or even that set of 
labels that you attached to your wiring behind the radios that helped you 
sort out problems when Murphy struck.

A second, and equally interesting aspect of cheap and simple fixes includes 
innovative "work-arounds" to solve last-minute problems.  I've heard "urban 
legend" stories of using a two hole amp with just one tube (at reduced power, 
of course), making emergency tube substitutions in amps, using a VOM as a 
rotor indicator, using a rope and pulley arrangement to replace a defective 
rotor, etc.  Give us your "war stories" of economical and innovative 
work-arounds, we'll withhold names to protect the innocent if requested.

Again, an enormous "thanks in advance" for the inputs you provide that will 
entertain and inform the contest community.  I look forward to hearing from 
you.

Paul, K5AF

IARU Region 1 SSB Field Day
---------------------------

Hello Contester,

this weekend the IARU REGION 1 SSB Field Day will take place

*********** 07.09.2002 13:00 to 08.09.2002 12:59 ************

Please give the /p stations a call, they will be happy.

Asian stations do accept calls from Field Day stations while AA 
the Region 1 stations will be so clever to give to you two different
numbers 
"age and serial number".
If you are doing like this, it would be superb.

Stations outside Germany are welcome and have a real opportunity 
to participate in the categories

Class D for /p  outside Germany
Class F for fixed stations
Checklogs

Here you will find the rules

http://www.darc.de/referate/dx/fedcf.htm

The Field Day Committee of the DARC will be happy, if you 
are sending your electronic log to

fieldday@darc.de

in order to varify the qsos made while the contest.

We have a full electronic log checking.

You will get a confirmation of the log entrance, a website
where you can find the conformation and if you are really
active a nice certificate.

See you in the contest

I use the FT1000MP, and it's a fine rig. But in terms of raw SSB 
receiving sensitivity it's a negligible improvement over my old 
faithful 940. All sorts of superior bells and whistles, many of which 
are useful, or even vital on typical busy bands and for split 
operation, but better sensitivity? - no. Under very quiet conditions 
on 10M, with an almost empty band, the 940 will pull out really weak 
ones better than the 1000MP. I've tested them side-by-side. Maybe the 
new TenTec will make a breakthrough in that respect?

Make sure your high gain preamp is turned on in the MP's menu setup.

I've found several MP owners who were not aware of that "feature."

The solder joints around the PLL circuits are not generally to blame.
It is within the little tin can which actually holds the crystal. I
had 2 940s, and both developed the same problem.

The solution is to melt the wax out of the can, resolder the
connections inside, and that should fix it. Milt Lord, the Radio
Doctor did both of mine, and as I recall, didn't refill the cans with
wax or whatever melted out.

Hope this helps.

I fixed several power supply problems by opening it up and noticing that there
is a footprint on the PC board where a filter *would* normally be installed,
usually just jumpered over with bare wire.  About 10 turns of something like 18
or 20 gauge insulated wire, bifilar wound around a torroid would work in place.
Just make sure to wire it correctly (in-line) so you don't short out the AC
line instead!

I've ran into this one myself Jamie. My son
works in the computer field, and he said they
used Antec cases back when I was having
the problem. This one I use is a 300 watt PS
and the case is heavy. I think it ran me around
100 bucks or more 2.5 years ago. But it has
been worth it. I'm sure there are probably 
other good ones out there. The Antec web site
is at: http://www.antec-inc.com/

Come to think of it, the P 200 my wife uses is
an Antec case also. When we first built this pc,
it was with parts from a computer show, and I
had reservations when I bought that case. It was
around 40 bucks I think. But it would destroy
40/80 and 160 for me, so I had to do something.

I just remembered about www.pricewatch.com and
did some snooping there. You have to click on
"Cases" and then a page of brand names show up.
I clicked on "Antec" and found some pretty decent
prices there.

recommend a particular power supply to replace the existing one with? What

Subject: [CQ-Contest] RTTY Callsign Database Offer
Message-ID: <022f01c2543d$4fdb3720$6401a8c0@don>

I am now offering my master RTTY callsign database file in ASCII
form.  The file comes in zipped form and is called mstrtty.zip.  It can
be downloaded off my RTTY page at http://www.aa5au.com/rtty.

Unzipped you will find the file mstrtty.cal which can be used with WF1B
and possibly some other RTTY programs.  WriteLog users must use
the file available on my WriteLog website http://www.geocities.com/writelog.
Both files contain the same callsigns.  You may need to rename the file to
work with your program.  If you wish to use the file as a master database
with WT4I Cabrillo Tools, you will need to rename it master.cal.

The callsigns are from stations worked in RTTY contests for many
years and are an accumulation of lists generated by others, callsigns from
major contest log checkers and my own RTTY contest logs.  The file is
regularly checked by Ed, K4SB, against the FCC database and old USA
calls are removed.  The present file contains 21,359 callsigns.  Because of
the size of the file, it may bog down some DOS programs.  Use at your
own risk.

If you are going to be operating CQ/RJ WW RTTY this month using a callsign
that is not included in the file and would like that callsign added, reply to
this E-mail with the callsign and I will add it to the file.  To determine if a
certain callsign is in the file, download the ASCII version, unzip the zipped 
file,
open mstrtty.cal in WordPad and do a search of the callsign with CTRL+F.

If you are going to a DX location for the contest and would like this 
information
included in next week's VK2SG RTTY DX Notes, let me know I will include
it in the Notes.  If you want a call added to the file, but wish to keep your
operation a secret until the contest, I will honor that request as well.

I feel that getting to know how to use the receiver section of the
transceiver is very important.  I have heard the knocks on the TS 850 on 160
Overload) and also have been in first hand competition with the TS 940.  In
1988 I was helping N4HOH in a small M/S effort in the CQ WW SSB.  Nearby was
M/M K4JPD.  I was running stations on 10 SSB with my FT 980 somewhere around
28.760 and at a lull Steve K4JPD broke in and asked what I was using.  He
said he could hear the stations I was working but the QRM was so bad he and
the 10 meter op could not run as I was doing.  I am sure his signal was 5 or
10DB more than my 1KW to a TH7.

He and the 10 meter Op had very little experience on the TS 940 but I don't
believe the FT 980 is that much better than the 940.
Learning to use the receiver system (filters, offset tuning) is important as
it was years ago with our separate receivers.  Maybe its tunable ears such
as N4PN (ex W4YWX) is supposed to have but knowing the receiver and using it
to the max helps!

Here is a note from 1997 that I posted to the cq-contest reflector for
Carlos - PY1CAS and others.  All the more applicable today, although
as the manufacturers continue to shrink the components it may be
more difficult to retrofit a commercial filter.  In some power supplies
today the pads for the filter have been eliminated as well as the
components.

--John   W0UN
----------------------------------------
Carlos, many of the new computers are omitting the RFI filter in the power 
supply that keeps the garbage from the switching mode supply from entering 
the AC mains. I have had excellent results (as have others who have taken 
my suggestion) in virtually eliminating the interference by replacing the 
AC connector on the back of the power supply with an integrated AC 
connector and RFI filter such as the Corcom 6EF1. The mounting hole for the 
connector must be widened a few millimeters on each side--something that 
can be done with a file in a minute or two. Just make sure there is enough 
room behind the connector position to clear the somewhat longer RFI filter. 
In one case that I made the modification I needed to bend a capacitor out 
of the way. Some power supplies have a place on the circuit board for a 
filter but have eliminated the components to save some money, and have just 
placed jumpers in the positions where the components had been. It would be 
possible to make a new filter and add it to the existing location--or to 
add it between the circuit board and the existing connector----but the 
commercial Corcom filter is probably the best and easiest way to go. The 
commercial filter has 1.0 mH coils (bifilar rated at 6 amps in series with 
each side of the line. On the computer side each side of the AC line has 
2800 pF to circuit ground. On the AC mains side of the filter there is a 
9000 pF capacitor across the mains (not to ground). Just make sure that you 
use capacitors that are rated to be installed across the AC mains! The 
filters are available from most US electronics suppliers for around $10 or 
so, but can often be found in the surplus market for $1-$2. I used the 3 
amp version (3EF1, a little marginal) because I found some for $1. There is 
also a 3EF2 and a 6EF2 that will work and may be even easier to fit inside 
the power supply--their terminals come out the top/bottom rather than the 
end. If adding and AC mains RFI filter doesn't completely cure the problem 
then additional RFI suppression will be needed--but in my cases (3 
computers) it eliminated the problem. gl es 73 John W0UN

I recently bought an Antec SX-630 ATX case from Provantage with a 300-watt 
PS -- seems like I paid about $70 plus shipping for the whole thing.  Very 
sturdy, two fans, easy access, yet little fan noise, and the PS appears to 
be totally silent for RFI.

That being said, many inexpensive power supplies these days leave out 
essential AC line filter capabilities.  you can put this right by swapping 
the power input jack for one of the Qualtek units with an integral AC line 
filter -- I think they took these over from Corcom, whose filters John W0UN 
recommended a few years ago.

Larry:

First observation:  the identification requirements for USA amateur radio
stations operating in contests and for stations on DXpeditions in US
territories is in 97.119 as you state:  the station must transmit its
assigned call sign on its transmitting channel at the end of each
communication.  (If the every 10 minutes condition kicks in they got a real
problem-like  generator/antenna/op asleep problems!)   Considering the goal
of the DXpedition or contest usually is maximum Qs and minimum dupes the
station at the bottom of the heap kind of has a built-in incentive to make
sure everyone listening to the channels knows who it is causing the ruckus.

Second:  Part 97 does not define the term "communication" or "message".
Neither does Part 2 of the FCC's Rules, which contains many definitions from
the international Radio Regulations.   Looking at the rules, Section 97.3
defines a "message forwarding system" as including communications sent from
the control operator of one station to the control operator of other
station(s), while Section 97.111(a) is authorized two-way "communications"
and the word "messages" appears in the rule in each sub-paragraph.  Section
97.111(b) is authorized one-way communications and the word "transmissions"
appears repeatedly.  In Section 97.117, International communications, the
words "transmissions" and "messages" appear.   Section 97.115 is Third party
communications and the words "messages" and "communications" are both used.
Unless someone wants to pick a fight about how many angels are on the head
of a pin, after the obligatory fight about whether or not they are angels of
course, I'd say as a practical matter the terms are pretty interchangeable.

If  this is a real problem about to effect the fabric of the universe, you
might want to take it up with the contest sponsor or whoever is going to
give country credit for the DXpedition.  And they can police it.  I really
can't see Riley getting into this one.

A current topic of discussion among the radio amateurs on the CQ CONTEST
REFLECTOR has to do with the identification requirements for USA amateur
radio stations operating in contests and for stations on DXpeditions in US
territories; as set out in 97.119.


?97.119 Station identification.
(a) Each amateur station, except a space station or telecommand station,
must transmit its assigned call sign on its transmitting channel at the end
of each communication, and at least every ten minutes during a
communication, for the purpose of clearly making the source of the
transmissions from the station known to those receiving the transmissions.
No station may transmit unidentified communications or signals, or transmit
as the station call sign, any call sign not authorized to the station.


The question is about a station that makes a series of consecutive contacts
with other stations on the same frequency and mode and only sends his own
call after being asked for it or after several contacts.  Each contact
consists of acknowledging the callsign of another station calling him and a
signal report or contest exchange.

Does each individual contact constitute a "communication" or does the series
of contacts constitute a "communication" requiring identification every 10
minutes?
In other words: Is it required under 97.119 to give your callsign at the end
of each contact with another station?

rig changes as well as a station reconfiguration - wanna use the Sprint 
to get back in the groove...have done everything either single radio or 
multi-op since then and want the single op ability to return to SO2R.

...have acquired a Heil audio mixing box, now for the next question - 
since I have the two rigs at the contest site - not here - I would like 
to fabricate my cables for the audio ahead of timwe but do not remember 
how the audio outputs of the two following rigs (their speaker jacks) 
appear.

YAUSU GUYS, look on the back of your rigs for me - what are the speaker 
jacks?

FT990 - I think this one is a push on RCA plug, have the service manual 
here and it looks to be that anyhow...

FT1000D - forget, am worried it is funky due to the dual receive option

I hope to use each as a monaural source to be mixed left into left right 
into right...so need to know if I need two push on RCA plugs one for 
each source or is the speaker output for the 1000D a 1/4" stereo or mono 
plug etc...

THANKS!  The station (and rigs) are at my folks place and if I can get 
an answer here I will be able to have the cable ready when I get there 
for the contest this weekend versus a last minute run to Radio shack for 
an adaptor or cable (please tell me neither of these is a DIN cable)

I don't think it's fair to say that the FCC doesn't care.

I get the impression (and I could be wrong) from Bill Cross's answer that IF
the station in question is under FCC jurisdiction, and it identifies itself
at least once every 10 minutes, the FCC isn't going to be concerned.  It all
comes down how you define "communication," which is currently not defined
within FCC rules.  Which means, use some common sense.

It sounds more like Bill is trying to politely say "you really don't need or
want us to rule on this, do you?"

1. Have you by-passed the router to make sure that is not the source?
2. Have you tried different Cat 5 patch cables?
3. Have you tried a different NIC card?

The RF could be entering the system from several points in the chain.

the carbon out of their rigs.  Tomorrow night, Friday, at 0400z meet us at 
~3830 to chat until about 0415z when we will start a CW Mini Sprint on 80 and 
40 only.  It will last 5-10 minutes depending on how many people show up.  
Let's get a bunch of contesters together and make some noise tomorrow night.


Also, how about signing up for the SSB NA Sprint NCCC TEAM?  That's on Saturday 
eve, Sept. 14.  You need not be an NCCC member to join up with us.  The NCCC is 
looking to form one or two teams to join in the fun.
Contact the NCCC SSB Sprint Manager, Mark, KI7WX at KI7WX@aol.com

So I would like encourage everyone new and old to come out enjoy the fun.
I am hopeful that we will have a record turn-out which will result in some
record
scores being set.

If you are forming a team, please register them via the following Web site:

I guess he's a ham, although I don't know his callsign.  But I think hams
in the FCC are rarer than they used to be.

Prose Walker W4BW, former FCC chairman, is still quite active.  He can
often be found on 40 CW.

I just got back from Las Vegas and there were a whole bunch of e-mails
asking me how to turn on the MP's high gain preamp. See, I _knew_ there
were a bunch of folks unaware of that setting!

I'm a Kenwood guy, and don't even own an MP, but I know it's in the
menus somewhere. From one of the e-mails I received, I think it may be
menu function 8-4. The default is "Flat," and that is not the one
you want. When the background noise is quiet, you need more gain than
the flat setting provides.

Maybe an MP owner can post the correct menu and setting.

Message-ID: <20020907021028.96797.qmail@web10502.mail.yahoo.com>

 Wonder if anyone out there is still using a Kenwood TS830S ?

 I use mine for my 2nd radio when I do SO2R. I haven't used it for
about a year since I didn't have a station set up. I am now putting a
small station back together since we recently moved into a place where
I can have antennas again.

I am experiencing the following symptoms :

When I first turn on the radio it seems like the receiver is almost
dead. The CW Calibrator has no reading/or very low on the S meter.
If you let the radio "warm up" for about 5 minutes or so the receiver
starts to return to normal and the S meter readings seem to be OK. I
have adjusted the ANT and MIX coils per the instructions in the manual
but this has not resolved my problem. Maybe I need a new driver tube
-12BY7A ???

 Anyone ever remember having this problem ???

That's correct. It's menu item 8-4, and you need the "Tuned" condition.

To answer K6LLs question, the MP manual shows Menu 8-4,  receiver Front-end
RF Amplifier

Flat    A broadband amplifier with flat response

Tuned     A seperate tuned amplifier for low and high bands.

In a short listening session I cannot tell much difference in received

Jeff,
I still use an TS-830S.  I don't think your problem
is the driver tube as that is just used for transmit.  You
might try removing the covers, divide the rig into
sections with some cardboard, and see if you can
determine where the problem is by heating with a
hair dryer.  If you can make the rig return to normal
quicker by heating a section you have narrowed the
search.  If I had to take a guess, I would suspect
something in the AGC circuit.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] MP (Mark V) and the "front end"
Message-ID: <177.e1855a0.2aaad77d@aol.com>

Coincidentally with Dave's (K6LL) posting of info about the front end 
selection via menus on the MP and Mark V, I had a chance to do the INRAD IF 
Amp mod for a friend. Here's an email I sent this morning to yet another 
friend on my experience ...

****************************************************************
"I had the opportunity to put the Inrad IF amp mod into a Mark V for a friend
last night. The results were nothing short of impressive."

"The original setting for the r-IF gain (Menu 9-1) was 13. We played a bit
and finally settled on a new value of 10. On 40 the S-meter noise level
indication dropped from about S7 to about S4 with NO perceptible (by ear)
difference in strength of a received CW signal. On careful watching, the
S-meter indication of an actual signal dropped about one-half an S-unit."

"On 20 the indicated noise level dropped from S2/3 to zero, again with no
perceptible difference in signal strength."

"I also told the owner about the tuned versus flat front end for 80 and
40. The combination of that and the Inrad mod made the Mark V as quiet as, or 
a
bit quieter than my FT1000D on 80 and 40."

****************************************************************

Unfortunately, I'm not an MP owner so I can't put my hands on a manual. 
However the menu entry for varying the pre-amp is called "Front End" and the 
settings are "Flat" and "Tuned". You can have the radio on an antenna and a 
signal and change the settings to hear the result for yourself.

Dave

You have it correct it is menu 8-4 Front End RF Amp Selection and the
choices are flat/tuned.  The tuned selection uses "optimized" amps.

One thing I found in the 10m contest is that depending on condx, it
sometimes helps to use IPO.  I know the manual says for low band high
qrm condx... but it does work on high band weak signals as well under
some condx.

As for KW's... I loved my 830 but have not been happy with any KW
offering since that.  I hate the filter selection method.  I don't
want to toggle through all of the filters... I want to select the one
I want.  I also don't like the no RIT clearing button thing.  I also
find the button layout to be non-ergonomic (to my liking).  I also
don't like not having a separate VFO knob for the sub-rcv (KW has VFO
A/B buttons).  KW also doesn't have band data out (I don't think
using the logging software for this is a good engineering solution
and since I have an automated switching station... plus this is just
what I need, to have to get even more ports to work in a PC,
especially since LPT ports are now considered "legacy" and are being
phases out...yuck).  I could go on but those are all reasons why I
abandoned KW long ago for Icom and Yaesu.  Also, I don't think DSP
filtering alone is enough (yet,maybe some day?), so these days the
only radios left that meets my requirements are made by Yaesu
(1000-MP/D).  If someone comes up with a better radio, I'm always
looking.

Go get yourself some contact cleaner.  Spray all the switches and the small
interconnecting wire pins.  May can just pull them loose and stick them back
together.

You probably have some corrosion from sitting around.  Humidity etc.   You
may also need to loosen any mounting screws on the PCB's and re-tighten
them.

I was guest op last year in a 10-meter contest.  At the end of the
contest, I told the owner that he should check his FT1000MP because the
sensitivity was lower than any I had ever experienced and I knew I had
missed at least a few QSOs because I couldn't get enough gain to copy
the call and exchange.  He then recalled that he had been using that MP
on 160 meters on a noisy occasion and had turned off that internal
preamp.  Mine had always been on, so it didn't occur to me to check
his.  So, I learned the hard way that it does make  a difference in weak
signal circumstances.

73,

John, K4BAI.

Not just ANY contact cleaner but CAIG Labs contact cleaner.
Gold or DeOxIt depending on what you are cleaing.  Not cheap by
any means, but by far the best.

This is the TRUTH.  I have a couple of flakey Jones plug/jack combinations 
in my rotator wiring that used to give me fits till I bought an intro kit 
from Caig.  You don't need very much, it last a long time, and it really works!

I have found other uses for changing the preamp settings.
On 10 meters, when I have a lot of noise, turning the preamp off
and sometimes adding a bit of attenuation helps a bunch in
making things readable.
  On 80/160 during bad noise/static conditions turning the preamp on
seems to make things more readable.
I've had this radio since 97(I think) and I still learn stuff all the time!

I had never heard of the Caig products until I bought some from
Ten-Tec for a mod installation in 95 or 96. You really don't need much
I still have both cans I bought then!
It really , really works!

Subject: [CQ-Contest] TS-870 (S)
Message-ID: <Pine.LNX.4.21.0209091553290.18120-100000@fresno.akorn.net>

I got rid of one of my FT-1000MPs prior to going to Finland and I sold the
other one while I was there.  It is a FB radio, but I got tired of hearing
about key clicks and something about the receiver that I can't explain.  
Yes, I know there is a mod for the key clicks.  I've also been tortured
with an RIT problem that makes the RIT jump all over the place when tuned.  
I had both radios fixed, and the problem came back.  Very frustrating.

Anyway, I have been using an TS870 for my remote control station and in
WPX we used it on one of the stations.  Kenwood radios just have the best
fidelity for whatever reason.  The radio was also easy to use and isn't
laced with a bunch of do-dads that I don't need or use.  That is when I
got it in my head to give it a try and get rid of the 1000MPs.

My first contest with the radios was the NAQP.  Unfortunately, the
receiver didn't pass the test.  Under loud signal conditions, the receiver
couldn't handle it.  I have the TS-870 and not the TS-870S.  In the S
model, they fixed some things with the frontend related to overload like I
experienced.  There is also a documented fix for this problem for the
TS-870.

Between NAQP and the Sprint I decided I would get the modification done
and while researching some other stuff about the radio I ran across some
documents and emails about installing a 1K mechanical filter in the front
end, replacing the existing filter (very wide).  I talked to George and
International Radio about this idea, and he told me about a German ham who
had recently published an article in the German CQ magazine about
installing an Inrad 600 hz (I believe) filter and switching it out on SSB.  
I don't care for SSB, so switching out the filter didn't matter to me.  I
went ahead and ordered 2 400Hz filters from George and installed them in
the radio at the same time I did the modification.

This past weekend was the CW Sprint.  A contest with some VERY large
signals and a great test for receiver crunch.  The results were great.  
The radio didn't crunch at all and the DSP filtering in addition to the
mechanical filter gave me the option to narrow up the passband when
needed.  I also like the IF shift on this radio better than the MP for
some reason.  I finished with the most QSOs I've ever made in the Sprint,
so I think the radios weren't a problem.

One of the 870s (K1TTTs) had a pre-existing problem that I discovered
right before the contest (thanks N2NT and W8LX).  N2NT was HUGE on 20 and
it sounded like he had a chirpy signal and clicks.  I told him so, and
W8LX jumped in and said I was the one sounding chirpy.  So I switched
radios, and the problem went away.  I'm taking it over to W6XA today to
get that fixed up.

Bottom line:  I really like the radio.  It is small without knobs designed
for children.  It has nice step attenuation, variable CW width, great IF
shift ability, smooth RIT, key & keyer input jacks, and receive antenna
input (easy mod).  I've had nothing but good signal reports from the
critical CW ops on 40M.  I've also heard that this radio is very good for
in band phase noise control.  I have not tested it yet, but that was
another thing that was bad with my MPs.

Negatives: The radio will only work on one sideband now (CW reverse).  It
doesn't interface with my auto-switching TopTen band controller.  And,
K4BAI has to learn how to use another radio for SS.  I think I'll send him
down one to play with before the contest.

FYI & 73

Nice info Bill.  Thanks for sharing it.  I just received my 3rd TS-870S
today.  Although I don't do much CW contesting with it, it takes the cake
(and a few plaques as well) on RTTY.

I just wanted to let everyone know that the TS-870S is a little hard to find
new.  I called around a few of my regular places and no one stocked them.
I did find that they stocked them at AES in Orlando.  Ordered it last Thursday
and received it today.  HRO told me it was not a special order item.

I do occasionally get the overload you were talking about, but only on 20M
when the band is fully of strong signals.  I take care of that by using AIP 
which
quiets the receiver nicely and allows me to still copy weak RTTY signals in
between strong ones.

I bought the 3rd one for two reasons.  I just had to send one in for repair for
a problem similar to what you said except there was total distortion of signal
both TX and RX.  This was intermittent.  As long as I used the radio in a 
contest
and transmitted on it, it ran fine.  If I took a rest period and did not turn 
the
radio off, when I came back, everything was distorted.  If I turned the radio
off for about 30 mins and turned it back on, it worked fine again.  Finally, it
broke like that for good.  I sent it to AVVID two weeks ago and do not think
I'll have it back in time for CQ/RJ RTTY, so I bought another one.  The guy
at AVVID told me he things it's a problem with the PLL circuit.  A guy at one
of regular places on the East Coast who I called first to purchase another 
TS-870
said he thinks the same thing.  So don't know if the radios have an inherent PLL
problem or not, but it's the first time I've had trouble with one of mine.

The other reason of course if to have a spare for my SO2R station (and maybe
try SO3R RTTY again - last time was too hard to do and not as efficient as 
SO2R).

Although I have no intention of modifying my radios, I wonder if the mod you
describe will still allow the radio to be used in the FSK position?  I don't see
why not.

73, Don AA5AU

My favorite radio is still my old (1989 vintage) Kenwood TS-950SD.  And last
time I checked, it still holds a few world records.

Yes, the 1000D and MP's I've used have been fine.  Are they better than my
950?  Maybe, maybe not.

One thing I like about my 950, it has been FLAWLESS, never a problem in all
these dozen years.  Sometimes it just sits on Ascension Island, untouched
for a year or more, yet has never failed to fire-up or failed during a 48
hour contest. Amazing.

Other newer radios may have more bells and whistles, but not sure I would
use them all anyway.

NEW SUBJECT:  Does anyone still make voice keyers?  I'm anxiously awaiting
W9XT's latest for my notebook computer; but in the meantime urgently need
one for next month.  Help anyone?

The N1MM free logger works great.  Use your Heil Pro to record Windows .WAV 
files

and the function keys to play them back.  Record WAV's of each of the 
alph-numerics and it will even say the other guy's call.  Have used it 
in a couple of SS's and have said nary a word...

I have one that does and have even replaced the VFO board with one of those

Hello Jon

One thing nice about old radios like the TS-820 is they don't have
the mystery LSI chips and usually easy to fix. They also find mults
in a contest just fine, maybe even better.

Verify the HV is correct by the 820 panel meter. If one of the HV 
caps has failed it will indicate 400 VDC vice 800. Verify the screen
supply is okay and the 12BY7A cathode resistors R10/11 are still 
the same value. Verify a good ALC peak. 

If you are into troubleshooting RF circuits the IF unit will have 1v PP
of RF going into the TX mixer and 8 Vpp RF going to the driver. The
output of the driver to the 6146 grids is around 100 v pp. Another
place to verify transmitter operation is RF3 pin 6 on the RF unit. The
ALC voltage should be around 2 volts for 120 watts RF out. 

Good luck, the 820 is a fine radio and worth the trouble to fix. Kenwood 
sold a lot of them in the 70's. The 830 is even better, it forced people
like to me to give up our s-lines.

Hello Don,Bill, et al,
I like this radio very much. I made all proper mods : Intermodulation mod,
filters mod - two of 2.4 kc instead of two of 3kc, RX Ant mod, AGC (eproms)
mod, CW-monitor mod, NB range mod. Most of them are at
http://www.mods.dk . I always take care about correct input levels,
I mean, any strong signal should be no more than about 59+20db
and medium signals are about 57-58. I always use AIP ON for all bands and
additionally switch on the attenuator from 14mc and lower. You should never
switch ON menu #11 "S-meter correction for AIP". Also please take into
consideration that in CW and FSK mode analog filters of 2nd and 3rd IFs
shifted so their passbands overlap only by the desired amont - 500hz for
400hz-setting and so on depending on the setting [QST, february 1996,p.75].
I think it is great contest radio , but only for advanced users.

They have not changed the rules.

Kinda makes you wonder just how many operators turn on the amplifier even
though the rules say otherwise.

The 48th WAE-DX-Contest is scheduled for the upcoming weekend, September
14/15 for the phone portion. EU stations work DX and DX stations work
EU in this world-wide competition. Operation is restricted to the
five classic HF bands from 10 to 80 meters. Exchange RST and serial
number. If you want to get serious, check out the rules, which are
published on the WAEDC Web site at http://www.waedc.de. Be sure to read
the chapter about QTC traffic.

There are minor changes in the rules in respect to previous years:
new multipliers, a low power category and other small changes.
Expect some rare to semi-rare EU countries to show up in this
competition as well as a number of DX activities.

Last minute information is available on the WAEDC Web site
at http://www.waedc.de. Two days before the contest, an
up-to-date propagation forecast for the contest can be
found on the Web site.

Hello everybody !!
Vacation time, with 15 days at end of October.
My wife (PU2VYT) and me will spend
2/3 days in London, the same in Edimburg,
then Cardiff or other cities. We are still
thinking about - my wife need to spend
few hours at Liverpool (Beatles Fan).
Dublin is the city to finish our trip to 
the islands (10/11 days total).
Maybe between Oct-12 and Oct-24. We
need to come back for CQ WW hi hi hi...
And we know that will be necessary to visit
again because 12 days isn't enough !!!
After all, returning to Brasil, will spend a entire
day in Frankfurt, taking the plane at nigh to
coming back home. Like always, we know that
the best way to have a good time is receiving those
good  general information directly from people on
each country, and of course, nothing is
better than our Amateur Radio friends.
After years travelling and having good 
support from VE, W8, K2, CT, F, S5,
IK friends, we would like to repeat our
thanks to everybody.
If you have any sugestion, including restaurants,
hotel, places to visit, and even good and familiar
parties, please write to me, private: py2ny@arrl.net
We would like to escape a little from those ways
exclusively showed to tourists. Was incredible to
do this in other countries, meeting people of our
age  with same interests and knowing something
more about culture and life. Yes, we need and 
we want to visit the famous places, too !! And
of course, let's try to have some time together
and take a coffee...
Well, CQ-Contest had been  "the point" to begin
our travel projects last years. Thanks CQ-Contest
and thanks all the contesters and DX-ers here !!
Bye bye and hope to listen all of you on
Work All Europe DX Contest next weekend...

A simpler explanation may be that the contester selected the wrong power 
category when completing the web score reporting form.

On the other hand, some contesters are unfamiliar with the NAQP power 
limitations (it is one of the few non-QRP contests with no high power 
category). We occasionally receive high power or assisted NAQP log 
submissions -- they get used as check logs.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Feeding Antenna Arrays
Message-ID: <20020911.013025.-180187.0.kg4htt@juno.com>

I have a question about arrays - I read about phasing details, but I
haven't seen anything about current distribution.  Since an array depends
on equal current getting to all the antennas, how (if at all) do you
ensure that all antennas are receiving equal amounts of current?  After
all, if one antenna is 1.5:1 on a frequency, and the other antennas are
at 1.2:1 on the same frequency, it would appear that the current will
flow the most towards the antennas with the best match, and upset the
expected radiation patterns for the array.

I thought contesters may have the most experience with HF arrays...  Any
information  or pointers to sources of information on the topic of
correctly feeding arrays would be appreciated.... I'm hoping to have
something better set up for CQWW this fall....

73,
Vic KG4HTT

The tricks are:

1) Make the two antennas quite identical.
2) Choose the heights at which they are
mounted carefully so that the match is
identical on each.  Also, choose the heights
so that the lower is very close to half the
height of the upper.  For example, when
two ten meter yagis are stacked, 35 and 70
feet would meet both these criteria.  W6EEN
uses 3 10 meter yagis at 105, 70, and 35
feet, and can select almost any combination
of the 3.  A good simulation program like
NEC-2 is helpful in determining the best heights.
3) Use equal lengths of identical coaxial
cable between the antennas and the match
box.  Connect the two in parallel and match
for 26 ohms (2:1), or feed one at a time with
no match.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Low Audio from DVP - suggestions
Message-ID: <003d01c25ad0$ebd4e290$6401a8c0@Mark1>

Hello, All:

I just took a DVP I purchased used some time ago out of the box and
stuck it in an old Pentium.  The software functions work.  However, the
audio levels are extremely low, both for "transmit through" with a foot
switch and for playbacks from recording (either through the headphones
or through the radio). 

I used two different Heil headsets.  Both work when connected 
straight to the radios.  TR-Log and booting DOS on a Windows 95 
machine.   DVP files on the C drive...didn't get to setting up a RAM 
disk.  Kenwood radios.

I did not have a chance to swap the cable, though I'll try that 
after WAE with a YAESU cable I have lying around.  I can
check record/playback with that cable, but can't check the radio
connection.

I'm using one of their cables which I wired to work with the Heil
adapters and headsets...1/8" mono for microphone audio and 1/4" 
mono for PTT.

PTT works fine either from the foot switch or playbacks.

I did not try the test with the computer off...the manual says that should
bypass the board so it would probably work OK.  My next step is to
Ohm out the cable.

Any suggestions?  Of course, I chose WAE this weekend to try it for
the first time. :-)

Thanks in advance and 73.

Mark, KD4D

David,

Could you tell us what the hell you're talking about? If there is
any info on the WIA website that tells us about "revised licensing
arrangements" it's very well hidden.

XYL Ginny and I have enjoyed several very enjoyable visits
to VK including some externall territories. We both pay fifty
bucks a year to keep our licenses alive.

If something has been done to lessen the burden on visiting
hams, we'd like to learn about it. Please take a look at the
link you presented and give us visitors enough additional
info to learn what you want us to learn.

Thanks for the stimulus,

David,

Yes, that is so true, and anything that can be done to
encourage VK contesters is worthwhile.

YET I am still at sea about new licensing and examination
teams. I've walked into the ACA offices in Cairns and
Brisbane with my US ticket and a wad of money and
received VK licenses within minutes. Ginny has done the
same. Friends have carried our papers and money into
other ACA offices and bought licenses without our
presence.

Has something changed? Please tell us how contesting
in Oz is being encouraged, and how we foreigners mightr
be enticed to participate in contests fom that
wonderful place. There's a seed of really good stuff
in your msg but the fruit remains obscure.

Topic: Contesting from outside the target area

Do you operate contests where the world works a specific location, such as
state QSO parties from other states, WAE, SAC  or  All Asia from North
America  or the ARRL DX contests from outside the US and Canada?  Which
ones do you like the best and why? What strategies do you use? What are
your band plans?  What percentage of the time do you expect at least one
band to be open to the target area?

Thanks again for your support!

Message-ID: <17f.e517aa4.2ab34c46@aol.com>

Thanks to all for your insightful and poignant inputs for this column.  We 
have an interesting and fun topic for this issue and I look forward to your 
responses.

The topic is "The Nickel Fix That Saved Your Bacon".  I will explain the 
origin of the "nickel fix" at the beginning of the article, but I am 
basically looking for inexpensive and innovative ways that you solved 
last-minute problems and went on to successfully complete a contest.

The "cheap fixes' may include that clamp-on RF choke that kept RF out of the 
computer, the bypass capacitor you added to your rotor box to keep the 
indicator needle from swinging with your RF voice peaks, that post-it note 
that reminded you to watch the grid current on the amp, or even that set of 
labels that you attached to your wiring behind the radios that helped you 
sort out problems when Murphy struck.

A second, and equally interesting aspect of cheap and simple fixes includes 
innovative "work-arounds" to solve last-minute problems.  I've heard "urban 
legend" stories of using a two hole amp with just one tube (at reduced power, 
of course), making emergency tube substitutions in amps, using a VOM as a 
rotor indicator, using a rope and pulley arrangement to replace a defective 
rotor, etc.  Give us your "war stories" of economical and innovative 
work-arounds, we'll withhold names to protect the innocent if requested.

Again, an enormous "thanks in advance" for the inputs you provide that will 
entertain and inform the contest community.  I look forward to hearing from 
you.

Message-ID: <002801c25b32$5b73bfc0$690346a6@davef>

Towertalkers ... & ... Contest Ops ....

I just left the power company office here in town ... disussing plans to
install about
70 feet of R45 .... ground systems, MGN connections, etc ... inside my small
lot
.....and in the process the following came up:

Hydraulic-installed anchors ... they have a hydraulic system that hammers 7
or
10 foot long 0.75 inch diameter anchors into the earth with a big plate at
the end
... when they reach the desired depth then they set them for the desired
load
by pulling against the earth to the value desired ... maximum value is like
18000
lbs ... like a molly-bolt/screw thing you put in the wall, the plate at the
bottom opens
out and poof, you have a super anchor ... The name of the system they use is
MANTRA (???) ... and they said they would be willing to do the job for me !!

WOW & Double WOW ... when I consider I would have to put in four 3x5x2
rebarred
concrete anchors down six feet plus buy the anchors ...  Putting screw-in
anchors
into this small cobble around here is just short of impossible !!!!!!

Power company Anchor cost is like $85+ install ...will be given quote soon
...

Is this too good to be true ???   Does anyone know about this or has used
these anchors?
These are the anchors the city uses to dead end transmission and
distribution poles ... which
can have requirements at least as much (probably MORE) than my tower would
ever need ...

Your comments/experience requested ...

If this comes true I will get the info and put it on the reflector ...
unless it is already here somewhere.

Dave:

Those are Manta Ray anchors by Forsight Products, LLC.

See http://www.earthanchor.com/mantamain.html for 
details. They are out of Colorado.

I have looked at these for tie back anchors for sheet 
pile retaing walls among other uses. I usually have the 
good fortune to have a soils report from an geotechnical 
engineering consultant when I look at these things, but 
since the utility company has experience in your area I 
would not hesitate to use them if they are applicable.

Hope they work out for you.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Suprising News - ITU Zones not defined worldwide !!
Message-ID: <000601c25b47$db290760$b7a5cad5@host>

An interesting piece of information has just turned up....

Background: I was working on an overlay map for North America, and
discovered a number of discrepancies amongst available reference sources and
existing maps as to where exactly some of the ITU/IARU zone boundaries were.
So, I thought the best idea would be to go to the very top. I therefore sent
an email requesting the definitive ITU zone definitions to the IARU
president, Larry E. Price, W4RA LPrice@iaru.org

To quote from his reply :
> Tim - you have to keep in mind that the ITU has one administrative purpose
> for having zones that has nothing at all to do with amateur radio.
> However, various amateur radio organisations decided to have both awards
> and operating events on the air based on the idea of zones.
> But, since this is not why the zones exist as far as ITU is concerned, the
> sponsors of these amateur events are free to interpret the zone boundaries
> any way they wish. So, there might not be a single "official amateur radio
> zone list."
> For the US & Canada, the interpretation by ARRL is found in The ARRL
> Operating Manual, desk top reference, page 12 which defines the
> boundaries between US States and Canadian provinces.
> If you have more questions about any particular contest or award, they
> should be directed to the sponsor.
> 73
> Larry, W4RA

I thus went for a bit of a search on the Internet once more, and found some
definitions from the ARRL, the RSGB, and the IARU:

http://www.arrl.org/contests/vev0vy.html
06          W-K-N-A   U.S.A. (Washington, Oregon,
                     California, Nevada, Idaho,
                      & that part of Montana,
                      Utah & Arizona west of
                      110 Deg. W.)

http://www.g3wkl.freeserve.co.uk/awards/wituz.html
6. W6, W7 (excluding Wyoming & Montana east of 110W)

http://www.iaru.org/ituzonesc.gif
This map provided on the IARU's homepage, and copied frequently on many home
pages, shows a third definition !

This is just one example of discrepancies, noted straight away. There may be
others. On a flippant note, I could say that if you lived in parts of
Montana it's now officially possible to be in two places at once ! On a more
serious note, it seems to me suprising that all IARU member societies can't
come to a common zone definition.

Doing some basic planning. How far away would those of you operating 
SO2R consider the minimum distance between the main antenna (Force 12 C4 
at 60 feet) to a vertical? Are there any good resources on the web for 
this part of a SO2R? All the hits on google referred to software and 
inside the shack issues. I think I want to figure out if the antennas 
can be placed appropriately before I look at the inside issues. Thanks

For reference:

I have a vertically polarized 44 foot dipole I use on 10/20, and a 130 foot 
horizontal dipole 130 feet away for 40/15. I made a quickie 50 ohm 
termination for the "other" coax and rigged a diode detector and a meter so 
I could roughly measure RF. Then I applied full power on one antenna, each 
band, and measured voltage. It varied, but was up to a couple volts in the 
worst case. A 10+20 rejection stub on the 40/15 antenna, and a 40/15 
rejection stub on the other brought the worst case to less than a quarter 
volt, as I recall.  I see no crosstalk unless I tune directly to a harmonic.

No 80 meter contesting here.

I have no filters (yet)

Depends on power level and how you supress the other signal (stubs, 
bandpass filters or both. I have both). My 402CD is 9 ft from my high 
TH7 and no problems barefoot, and can get within 10-15 Khz of the 2nd 
harmonic on 20 (eg., 7005/14010). When on 20-10m, I have a TH7 at 
40 ft (lower part of stack) and one at 25 ft on same tower. No problems 
at all, except when on the second harmonic (eg., 14005/28010).

However...
You may want to rethink the vertical. I tried that, first, using a Hygain 
DX77 multiband vertical. A dummy load would have been just as good! I 
compared the vertical with a TH7 at 25 ft, and the TH7 was 5-6 S units 
better than the vertical. One potential problem you may have - I 
modeled the entire system, with different tribanders, before deciding 
what to do (I didn't want to install a second tower). I recall that I 
modeled C31XR's and the interactions between antennas were awful. 
With TH7s they were minimal. That's why I went with TH7s. As you 
already have a C4, you may want to consider another C4 at 30 ft for the 
second radio, but model it first to check for interactions.

Francesco,

I sure hope for your sake that your future XYL doesn't have an objection...

My first honeymoon (early 1980's) was in St. Thomas USVI.  Had snuck the HT
along, never ended up using it.  Biggest clue was when doing some
sightseeing the first evening, I spotted the tower of the late KV4AA, and
when I openly expressed some curiousity about it, I got a dirty look and a
later lecture on how she didn't want to spend her honeymoon around radios...
which is one of the many reasons it didn't work out, but that's another
story...

My second honeymoon (1992) was in Puerto Rico.  Also brought the HT along,
even had made arrangements to meet up with a few local hams, but chickened
out -- the previous experience had an effect.  So wouldn't you know it, at
the end of the week, we're getting on the shuttle bus from the rental car
place when I spot the driver's 2M HT (I'd say who if I could remember the
call).  We had a nice, short chat on the way to the terminal!On the plane
home, I found out that if I HAD broken the HT out, she not only wouldn't
have minded, but would have enjoyed a visit!  Live & learn...

So, I sure hope your fiance likes amateur radio!

73, ron wn3vaw

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Sprint Mults down
Message-ID: <171.13ccf61c.2ab72da9@aol.com>

As I keep reading all the comments in the Sprint scores on 3830, I notice a 
common thread about lack of mults, where were all the mults, low activity.  
Funny that after K9PG gets slammed for e-mailing folks (and now has stopped) 
to get them on the air, get mults active, help bring new blood in the 
contests we see a drop in such.. It's a doubled edged sword isn't it!  Maybe, 
just maybe what he was doing.... 
WAS helping everyone.  Think about it.

Hi everybody,

Just saw the CQWW CW 2001 results and am happy to 
take home a new EU record in the LP class...

I admit the story comes a bit late but maybe you would like to 
read it as a teaser for the upcoming CQWW contests this year. :-)

Feel free to read the whole story behind the CS7T operation on
my website: www.qsl.net/df4sa ... Enjoy!

73s & CU in the contests this year!

I have no problem with what PG was doing to boost activity! I noted that 40m 
was not nearly as productive at the start as it had been in previous years. 
Starting on 40m was a 'trademark' of his get on the air requests. I went to 
20m after less than 10 minutes.

Message-ID: <004501c25da6$e27ea4a0$eca5cad5@host>

Had a hunt around the net, looking for a good map of Russian prefixes and
call sign areas. Couldn't find one. Decided to make my own - its now at my
site. Help yourself. Look in the Map section. Click on the map and it will
open into a new browser. Let me know if its useful.

 Activity was not down on SSB but on CW as well. Plus the activity has
always been better on CW anyway. I suspect alot of those guys Paul
recruited were "newbees" and after doing a Sprint for the first time
they decided they really didn't like it.

 I have been doing the Sprint for over 20 years and I can tell you that
people fit into 2 categories - They love it (all the regular guys we
work in every Sprint) OR they hate it with a passion. 

 Call me crazy but I LOVE the Sprints... they are by far my favorite
contests. I wish there were more than 2 per year.

This is the Collegiate Amateur Radio Association webpage.

This is the first year of the contest, but the main goal is to get the
college stations on the air and active....  As of now I do not know of
any awards yet, since the rules aren't clear on it...  But it IS an
operating activity! :)

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Salmon Run - This Weekend
Message-ID: <010701c25e88$25817700$27d7fea9@mirage>

A reminder to the contesting multitudes - this weekend is the Washington State 
QSO Party - a.k.a. "The Salmon Run".  

You want prizes?  We have prizes!  Smoked salmon!  Save it up to go with your 
bottle of wine from the California QSO Party.  Now if we could just get cheese 
out of Wisconsin, beef out of Texas, oranges out of Florida, and a lobstah or 
two out of Maine, the winners could have a real meal!

Complete rules and details are available at www.wwdxc.org/salmonrun, including 
a page listing upcoming expeditions to the 39 counties.  With the possible 
exception of Pend O'Reille (pronounced "pond-o-ray" in the grand tradition of 
screwy Northwestern names) it looks like every county will be active for at 
least a while - lots of mobiles this year.  We will update the county page in 
the next couple of days with the latest news.  Rumor has it that there will be 
at least two multi-multi-mobiles, as well!

Dick, K7BTW will activate the bonus station W7DX from home, so look for a good 
signal to pick up the bonus points.

Software that supports the contest include TR, NA, and WriteLog.  TR has had 
support for some time.  NA 10.5 supports the contest, although for versions 
10.53 and earlier, the scoring still reflects the discontinued power 
multiplier.  To use this software, select the "High Power" option, for which 
the power multiplier is 1, and your score will be correct.  WriteLog has just 
released a Salmon Run module today - version 1.0.0.3 at 
http://home.xnet.com/~sjwoodr/ham/modules/.  (If you're planning on using 
WriteLog, you should exercise the new software before the contest - Steve N9OH 
at sjwoodr@yahoo.com is available to check on reported problems.)

At the same time, you can work the Scandinavian Activity Contest on CW, the 
Panama Anniversary Contest, The Fall QRP Homebrewer's Sprint, The Classic 
Exchange, QRP Afield, and the Collegiate QSO Party.  Yikes!  Check out 
http://www.arrl.org/contests/months/sep.html for all the details.

Hope to hear you in there fishing away!!

Hello all!
As i have changed my old TS-50 for a IC-7400 i would like to use my heil with 
it.

Could anybody tell me how to "remake" the connection, please?

I have rewired the mic conector as said in the IC manual... so
Kenwood         Icom
1                       1               MIC
2                       5               PTT
7                       7               GND
8                       6               GND(mic)

When i connect this to my new rig (the ic) i can change between rx/tx but no 
signal goes to the air... no voice, mic signal is not working...

Any idea?
Thanks.

My guess.  Icom has 8V on the mic line to drive preamps, since they decided
not to put them in the radios :-(.  Need a DC blocking capacitor in line.
Forget the value, but want to pass voice and block DC.  Should be referenced
in the manual, or on the web all over the place.

As i have changed my old TS-50 for a IC-7400 i would like to use my heil
with
it.

Could anybody tell me how to "remake" the connection, please?

I have rewired the mic conector as said in the IC manual... so
Kenwood         Icom
1                       1               MIC
2                       5               PTT
7                       7               GND
8                       6               GND(mic)

When i connect this to my new rig (the ic) i can change between rx/tx but no
signal goes to the air... no voice, mic signal is not working...

Any idea?
Thanks.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] IOTA Contest claimed scores
Message-ID: <0e8601c25fe9$c0b1ed60$87ed403e@field>

I am pleased to say that, thanks to Justin G4TSH and Tim G4VXE, the claimed
scores for the 2002 IOTA Contest are now on the RSGB HF Contests Committee
Web page
(www.rsgbhfcc.org ). Sadly I seem to have defaulted several multi-ops to
single-op - this will be corrected in the next iteration, and will be OK in
the final results. Some paper entries have yet to arrive with me from RSGB,
but otherwise the list should be near enough complete. We will also put
Soapbox and some photos on the Web pages in the next few days. I am
delighted to say that, despite dreadful propagation over the contest
weekend, the number of entries is at a record high, and likely to end up
about 15% above the previous best. Anyone who sent an entry by e-mail, or
provided an e-mail address with their disc or paper entry, should receive an
e-mail within the next few days summarising what we believe your category,
section, claimed score to be. Any corrections should be sent to me as soon
as possible.

I would like to join a group going to or operating from any warm and sunny 
place this contest season.
I like both CW and SSB but I am also interested in exploring local foods, booze 
and people; not
sitting by the radio for 48 hours. I can help before, during and after the 
contest. Drop a line to sm0jhf@chello.se,
thank you.

Message-ID: <3D8BB4CE.DE616523@buckeye-express.com>

As promised in a note last month here on cq-contest, I am trying to get
the master database files for this year out by 1-Oct.  Things are going
well and we have received many many logs (thanks).  However, this is one
of those tasks where you just can't have too much data.

This is a last call for any remaining logs to be included in this
release of the database.

If you would like to help out and haven't already sent logs, please send
them to me by 23-Sept 2002.

For details on what what is needed and such please see my prior post at:
  http://lists.contesting.com/_cq-contest/2002-August/048923.html
  and
  http://lists.contesting.com/_cq-contest/2002-August/048929.html

Thanks again.

73 Tim K9TM

PS. I have received some inquiries about specialty databases, VHF/UHF
and RTTY in particular (even a suggestion of a 160 database).

I have no problem spinning these databases as well.  The only thing I
need is the data (logs).  If there is a demand for these and sufficient
numbers of logs are sent, it is no problem for me to do that.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Traveling with a HF Rig
Message-ID: <3D8BBAA7.26BA3129@earthlink.net>

Would anyone who has traveled with a HF rig since 9/11/01 please pass on to
me their experiences and recommendations.
I travel to the Philippines every 2 or 3 years for the CQWWDX and/or ARRL
10 mtr Contests.  My previous trips there were before 9/11/01 and I had no
problem hand carrying my Kenwood TS-50 and AT-50 in the carry case Kenwood
designed for that purpose.  I was once asked at LAX what it was and I
showed the security checker the TS-50 Operating Manual and they allowed it
no problem.  I have traveled to Europe since 9/11/01 WITHOUT a rig and
noticed the increase in airport security.  I will be departing from LAX and
will have a layover with an additional security check in Hong Kong.  On my
return, I will have security checks at Manila and again at Hong Kong.  I
have nightmares of the security people confiscating my rig, questioning me,
and causing me to miss my non-refundable fare flight.  If I were to instead
pack it in my checked baggage, and the bag was later x-rayed and they
thought it was suspicious, what would they then do?
My travel agent and the airline people at Cathay Pacific are no help, they
suggest I leave it at home.  But it is kind of hard to work a contest
without a rig.
I will also have a laptop for logging and have no problem if they ask me to
turn it on to prove it is operational.  But what about the TS-50?  I would
need to find power to plug it in, and then all it could put out would be
static with no antenna.
I know some of you DXer's out there must have traveled with a rig since
9/11/01 and may be able to share your experiences with me. 
TIA & 73

I travelled through Tampa and San Juan to Dominica and back in July with an 
IC-756 in my carry on.  No problem, although I was asked about it, and in 
Tampa they padded it with one of those little white pads that cks for 
explosives.  The radio was wrapped in bubble wrap and taped shut.  I was not 
even asked to unwrap it.

The new Transportation Security Authority people are now on duty as the 
checkers, so maybe they will  have a diff procedure.  I am going on the same 
trip in Nov, and plan to take the rig the same as before.

Alan,

I have traveled twice with HF radios since 9/11. Neither time did I have any 
more than the usual problems.

The first was in February of 2002 on a trip from here (LA) to French 
Polynesia. Radios were an FT990 and pwr supply in a dedicated Pelican case an 
an IC735. We (my companion and I) were pulled out of line to have our checked 
baggage (all five pieces) x-rayed while we watched. The only bag identified 
for opening was the pelican case. It was opened, the radio swabbed for 
"residue" and the test was passed. Close it, lock it, no problem. There was 
an IC735 in another checked bag and it was never questioned at all. On the 
return (from Bora Bora, through Papeete to LAX) no questions at all, except 
for the weight. Airline was Air Tahiti Nui.

In June 2002, I was one of 6 people traveling via LGB and Chicago to San 
Juan, PR for FD as the "gringo" component of the NP4A team. We had four HF 
radios in either original shipping boxes or pelican cases as checked bags. No 
questions on any of the radios, either on the trip out or the return (same 
itinerary). Airline was United.

The only item questioned (and this has happened to me on every international 
trip including those before 9/11) is my paddles which always travel in carry 
on. They are always questioned and examined and the question is always the 
same: "What are those for?", "Sending Morse Code", "Gee, really?, that's 
cool! OK, go ahead".

As always, YMMV.

Good luck with the trip ... see you Sunday probably at N6AA's.

73 de Bill, W1HIJ/6, FO8DX, NP4A, et al

Tim

Like you I have travelled to Manila with radio equipment.  The thing that
has always concerned me is that in Manila airport there are signs detailing
proscribed imports.  Listed there along with drugs and firearms is radio
transmitting equipment.

My concern would be that with heightened security the chances of an
unenlightened security man finding your radio would be pretty high.  Who
knows where that might lead.

If you are determined to do it then I guess the best thing is to have as
much supporting documentation as you can muster.

Good luck.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Traveling with a HF Rig
Message-ID: <009201c2618d$c54658c0$39d096c1@henrykyc8adg56>

I recall my friend, who spent a few years in the Philipines (DU7CC), mentioning 
that clearing the radio equipment legally through the customs was a nightmare. 
His rig was bigger that the TS50 mentioned in previous message.
I have flown many times with radio gear since last September. Unfortunately 
once a switched power supply and an automatic antenna tuner with cables 
disappeared from my checked-in suitcase somewhere between Stockholm and Africa. 
No notification from any security authority, no compensation from the airline 
(except of a new suitcase). Since then I carry all my radios and tuners in hand 
luggage. No problems in Europe except of repeated X-ray scans. In some places, 
outside of Europe, they don't even have operational X-ray machines. I think 
that the security checks in Asia and Africa are different for different 
airlines.
Bringing a small radio into a country is one problem. Getting it out of the 
country through airport security checks is another. Bringing radios into the 
Philipines can be illegal but taking them out of the country is probably 100% 
legal. In Hong Kong - I don't think they care for radios. I would recommend 
taking the radio with you. Large airports have equipment for scanning for 
explosives and this is what they look for.
BTW, more than 10 years ago, Japanese security guards took my Swiss army knife 
in Tokyo. They said it was a potential weapon.

Good day,

I've been trying all day to send my wae ssb logs to waedc@darc.de, no luck so 
far. All messages are failed to get through. Is there any problem @DARC, or it 
was probably me?? :?

SM0JHF spoke of his experience taking HF equipment around the world:

Unless the radio is on the schedule for your station license here, or you have
an import license for it, bringing it in is unlawful.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] can't send my wae log
Message-ID: <200209230626.g8N6QSb02390@dl6rai.muc.de>

Hi Contesters!

DARC uses @darc.de as a mail forwarding service for its members. Due 
to reasons beyond my understanding, an anti-spam filter has been 
installed which deletes messages arriving from specific mail domains. 

Unfortunately, the list of blocked domains has not been made available 
either so the information below is incomplete. However, from personal 
experience, I know that E-Mail to @darc.de is blocked from the following 
senders:

@yahoo.com
@terra.es
@earthlink.net
@yandex.ru
@apollo.lv
@hotmail.com
@telkom.net
@mindspring.com

The problem is that sometimes E-mail from these domains does not even 
bounce but silently disappear in a black hole without the sender or 
receiver of that message being notified. This seems to be the case
when the message is coming from @hotmail.com.

For the moment, we can do nothing about it. I am in contact with DARC 
officials to change the situation.

If in doubt:

a) Make sure you received a response from the log robot when sending 
in your log. The robot answers within a few minutes after your log
has arrived and confirms the receipt with some additional details.

b) Check the Web Page at http://www.waedc.de:
-> Results 2002 
   -> CW or SSB 
      -> Logs Received

This site is usually up to date 1-2 days after your log has been 
received. If your callsign does not show up there, we have not 
received your log.

In this case, you can try sending your log from a different mail 
account. Or contact me directly at "wae@dl6rai.muc.de". My official 
"dl6rai@darc.de" address wouldn't work either in this case.

Sorry for the confusion, we are trying to sort it out.

73 Ben, DL6RAI

My CW log kept bouncing over and over - it was apparently a problem on their 
side.

My "fix" was sending it from another email account - in this case my wifes 
AOL account. I'm guessing for some reason they had put my domain "demop.com" 
in a blackhole list and were bouncing all email from it - possibly the same 
for "mail.ru" ?? Or maybe just a misconfiguration

Message-ID: <721D3436A7C2B344A301FD4A413C71A929965C@kosh.ARRLHQ.ORG>

I have been told there is a problem with the server in California that houses 
the ARRL Contest robot.  The server is down and is affecting several email 
reflectors and probably some additional services in addition to the ARRL 
Contest Robot.  They guys in California are working on the problem and will get 
things back and running as soon as possible.

If you are trying to submit an entry for an ARRL Contest, your original email 
is safe and stored at the ARRL.  If you receive back an "undeliverable" 
message, that message is being generated from the copy of your email that is 
sent to the robot. I am told by our Information Services Department that our HQ 
email system will queue the messages going to the robot and will try to re-send 
them.  If you haven't received a response from the robot, please be patient.  
If you have not received a reply back within the next 48 hours, you should 
re-send the entry.

We apologize for the delay and inconvenience.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Portable radio pack
Message-ID: <002101c26448$63f1f760$6d00a8c0@crashwin>

I've been looking at tac-packs, expedition packs, and worldpackII's for
my 706...  I'm obviously not looking for it to protect the radio from a
trip down a flight of stairs (my computer needs that more, but I
wouldn?t GIVE it padding, because I would be THROWING it down the
stairs), but am looking for somehting to carry the radio, and possibly a
few small accessories (mic, power cords, TNC cables, maybe a lead acid
battery, pair of earbuds)... Basically to make it portable, i.e. grab
the pack, put it in the truck, and head down to the radio club shack if
I want to play radio for a while with my radio.


Does anyone have any experience with any of these that might be able to
offer me some oppinions as to which is the "best" of the three?

Members only ?  Excuse me ... ! Wasn't that INTERNATIONAL contest ?
So I, from Australia, should become a member of the radio league of USA 
to see the scores online ?

This is completely pathetic. Just as sick as it can get.

At least I know what contest I will NOT participate in 2003 for sure. No 
way ! I guess they should change the rules: Only members can participate :-)

73 CU in some other contest.

      Don't have a kangaroo mate!  Scores are made available to all after the 
November issue of QST is published.  IFor example, if you go to the ARRL site 
now, you can see the CW results...SSB will become available to all in a few 
weeks.

Message-ID: <F227TZyabYTHrdusluC00000297@hotmail.com>

I've been wondering if N1MMLogger is the only contesting software that 
provides both VFO-A and VFO-B bandmaps and thus the ability to send a packet 
spot directly to VFO-B?  Appreciate any help from users familiar with the 
various software out there.

Thanks & 73,

Mike,

Maybe CU in CQWW - then you'll never see your score online!

The scores will be available to *everyone* in a month or two. Like (I think) 
American Express says "Membership has its rewards." In this case members 
just get to look first,

Mike

I'm afraid nobody but ARRL can understand this policy. 
I think it's a very polite way to let non-members know 
that they are not very welcome in the ARRL's contests.

Good day

If the contest is international the resalts should be available to all 
participants without any discrimination on MEMBERSHIP basis.

It really discourages international participants.

The ARRL DX Contest results are still available to the rest of the world 
the same as it has been for 50 years or more. When the QST magazine is 
published, the results are available to anyone who reads or buys the magazine.

Nothing has changed about that schedule of releasing the contest results.

With the availability of Internet, the ARRL now allows members-only to get 
an EARLY look at the results by viewing it on the web site. Without these 
members supporting the ARRL, the ARRL would not exist and these people all 
receive the magazine anyway. So it is not unfair to allow them an early 
peek at the results.

When the magazine becomes public, the results become common knowledge just 
the same as before and on the same schedule as before. Except that the ARRL 
now allows everyone to view the results on their web site after QST is mailed.

This is nothing to get upset about. Non-ARRL members probably get results 
faster now than you used to before Internet.

The point about international discrimination was explicitly made to the ARRL
Board of Directors by the QST Contest working group in their report (see
"Thinking Globally" in
http://www.designet.com/k1ir/Downloads/ContestProposal_071702.pdf).

Essentially the current ARRL policy says "come and play in my contests
because our members need the points your contacts bring them but they will
not let you see your results until long after their members have unless you
pay us money to join their club".

With this policy the focus is money! It is not community! This policy does
little to encourage international participation. In fact, if the issue is
not addressed it could discourage international participation .... something
the contest community cannot afford.

The more voices that are heard from the international contest community
about this discriminating ARRL policy the greater the likelihood it will be
changed.

I believe you guys are missing the point. The results WILL be 
available to all. ARRL gives a preview to members one month prior to 
publication for all to see. I don't think this is an unreasonable 
membership benefit.

What you really should be complaining about is CQWW, where the 
results are never available unless you buy a magazine.

P.S. Don't forget to work me in CQWW RTTY this weekend. Rresults of 
CQWW RTTY are Web published after the magazines (CQ and RTTY Journal) 
print them.

You may wish to recheck this fact -- things are changing. QST will no longer
publish contest line scores.
(see http://www.remote.arrl.org/announce/board-0207/)

"NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that as of the January 2003 issue of QST,
contest line scores shall be relocated from QST to the ARRL Web. "

Our club pays for QST but it can't read the results from ARRL members web site.

Anyhow, always it is very handy to have some friends with ARRL membership :)

I cannot believe how much acrimony this non-issue has created.

The ARRL puts the results on the members-only web page before the QST issue is 
published as a benefit of membership.

What's the big deal?

They post it for all, including non-members, to see when the magazine is 
released a few weeks later.

Don't other national organizations provide benefits exclusively to their 
members?  If they didn't, why would anyone pay membership fees?

Hi all,

Reading the latest mails concerning the ARRL Contest results brought
up to me memories of the pre internet years.
Being a regular columnist for many years for the our UBA Magazine
CQ-QSO I was always pleaseD to receive the results from many
contestorganisers  by snail mail.  In those years almost every
contestmanager mailed the results to the different national
organisations for publication.  Now everyone puts the results on a
webpage.  No harm done with that but last week I spend a whole
afternoon looking trough webpages just to find some results for
publishing.
I am sure that I am not the only columnist who spends hours on the net
just to find the information he needs to publish for his readers.
This work, however still done with pleasure could be done much quicker
if we where just notified that results and new rules are available
somewhere.
One small mail with the needed url would be enough.  This does not
even has to be a personal mail.  Most people like myself receive
messages from different contestreflectors, so it could be done in a
mail with just one address.
It could give us more time to be on the air, we are also amateurs who
like to make a QSO once in a while.
I hope this message rings a bell with some contestorganisers to save
me and a lot of others some time.

73 cu in the next test

Message-ID: <F9oaSbi9RzkKkq2eJ8d000078e6@hotmail.com>

Gentlemen (and ladies),

Anyone can apply for DXCC if they are NOT in the USA. If you're in the USA, 
you MUST be a member. This is a form of discrimination too!

BIG DEAL! Things can never be 100% fair, nor should they be.

And if you don't like it, move to W1, EA8, P4 or similar :) Then people can 
complain about your high scores being unfair!

Everyone gets to see the results if they are a member or have internet 
access or have friends. Some may get to see the results a little sooner.

I'm closer to Europe than XX, LPL, LR, AR, ZD etc - do you see them 
complaining that I get slightly longer EU openings on average?? (of course 
they can all kick my butt so the point is somewhat moot - but you get the 
idea).
73 and lets get back to contesting,
Ted, KT1V

Gee this ARRL bashing stuff really adds something to my
life as a contester!  Seems like everyone will be able to
see the results at no cost on the web site in the future and
not have to buy QST.  Membership in any organization
usually offers benefits that non-members don't receive and
I guess having the results available a short while before the
rest of the world isn't really a big deal anyway.

Let's go on to something more positive that will add to
our hobby and quit bitching!

Tony N7BG

BTW I am not a great fan of the ARRL and typically do
not agree with their policies.  I am a member because I
think it's the right thing to do as a Ham operator in the USA.

One of the most important things we can do is figure out ways to increase
participation in contests.

Discriminating against contestants who your organization has invited to
participate in their contests but who are not members of your organization
does not seem to be an appropriate way to do this.

Paying attention to small details like this is one good way to promote
fellowship and a more positive outlook on the larger amateur radio
contesting community. Sweeping details like this under the carpet only
causes the problem to fester in an unhealthy manner.

Hmmm.

Let's see. All you have to do is wait until the magazine is published. Then
the results will be on-line. How long does it take the printed version of
QST to arrive in Australia? In Finland? In Lower Slobovia? I bet it takes a
while. Meantime, you get the advantage of being able to see the results
on-line well before the magazine arrives.You just don't get to see them as
early as members.

NOBODY IS SAYING YOU DON'T GET TO SEE THEM. You just don't get them as fast
as the people who pay the ARRL's bills. NOBODY IS SAYING YOU HAVE TO JOIN
ARRL TO SEE THEM. You just have to wait a bit. Sheesh. It's not like
anybody's slaughtering your firstborn.

The level of acrimony displayed is frightening considering how truly small
and insignificant a provocation this is. Particularly set against the
knowledge that the current system provides international participants with
results far faster than the pre-Web environment that required you to wait
until the magazine arrived in your home country. Heck, now you don't even
need to buy the magazine.

Perhaps the solution is for the ARRL to abandon the practice of posting
anything to the Web. And having done that, perhaps the ARRL needs to delay
delivery of domestic copies of QST so domestic delivery coincides with
international delivery. That way, everybody gets the September issue at the
same time. In October.

Isn't that how socialism works? Equal suffering for all?

Criminies, folks. A little reasonableness, OK?

73, kelly, ve4xt
CU in the contest. All contests.

For the past two contest seasons I have been using Heil headsets with an

This distortion is not present when listening to the speaker, and appears to go

Hi Everyone!
I just wanted to remind everyone that the Alabama QSO Party is this weekend, 
Saturday September 28.  The party runs from 18:00 to 00:00 GMT.  

More details can be found at http://web.dbtech.net/~dxcc/rules1.htm.

AI4AA will be on the air from Pickens County on 15m, 80m, and possibly 40m.   
There will be a guest operator at our home station...Rebekah, WG4Y, will be on 
the air from Tuscaloosa, probably on 40m and 20m.  Rebekah is 9 years old and 
we'd love to see her make a lot of contacts with her new callsign.  =) 

Logs can be sent in any format via email or snail mail to 
dxcc@dbtech.net 
or
4525 Eastern Hills Lane
Cottondale, AL 35453

We know that the AQP will be running concurrently with the LA QSO Party and the 
TX QSO Party, but hope that this merely means more activity and county 
swapping.  =)  

Hope to meet everyone on the air!

Even when line-scores disappear from QST, you can (or I will, anyway) 
bet the full results (line-scores and all) will appear on the web at 
roughly the same time as they would have appeared in QST in the past.  
No harm, no foul. In fact, I'd bet the line scores will be online 
sooner.

It may already be moot to many/most non-members that line-scores are 
missing from QST - the magazine has all but disappeared from store 
shelves.  So, for them, the only choice will be the website.

Let's see...

OLD WAY: international amateurs had to wait weeks longer than US amateurs to
see QST results and, if they were not a member -- which itself was
considerably more expensive than for US amateurs -- had to pay highly
inflated (to cover postage and the profits of numerous middlemen, sorry,
middlepersons) newsstand prices to purchase the magazine.

NEW WAY: international amateurs get access to results as soon as QST is
printed, weeks before they'd receive hard copy, before US amateurs get their
QSTs and without having to pay or buy anything. A better system that's free
to boot. Gee. I can see why people are so outraged.

Hmmm. Am I missing something?

Oh, and somebody drag Mr. Haynie to The Hague, please. A dues-run
organization that structures its policies to encourage more dues be paid?
Put the Milosevic trial on hold, this one's much, much bigger. Worse, it
doesn't let those who don't pay membership dictate policy. Wow. Convene the
Security Council at once.

That said, it is mildly irritating that the League will take international
membership money but extend no voting rights. But it's not a flashpoint for
me the way this Web thing is for others.

Yikes. I thought this ARRL Web thing was a really big issue!

Imagine, a private, for-profit organization that structures its affairs in
such a way that profits are at least retained, if not augmented somewhat.
Capitalist pigs!

In all honesty, CQ does not run WW because it wants to teach the world to
sing. It runs WW (and other contests) as part of a larger plan to sell
magazines. And that is its core business. Dick's a nice guy, and probably
very philanthropic, but how many people run a business for nothing?

If it then gave away contest results, how many single-copy sales would be
lost? How many subscriptions would lapse? I don't know, but I'm pretty sure
the margins at CQ are slim enough that it would hurt, perhaps fatally. If
nothing else, it would likely remove any incentive to actually run the
contests.

If it is too much to buy one copy of CQ to see the results of 48 hours
operating, untold construction hours and thousands of dollars of capital
outlay, then I really do fear for this hobby.

OK, I'm confused here... not that that's anything new.  So let's see...

For all the years (50?  60?  70?) that the ARRL has run the International DX
Contest(s) in one form or another, the results were only available, months
after the fact, in the pages of QST, which meant that only people who got
QST (ie ARRL members and those who buy it at newstands or ham stores)
normally got to see the full results.

For the last two years or so, the results (in one form or another) have also
been made available via the ARRL Web page.  As is the case this year, the
results are available early (roughly a month) in the Members Only area, but
once the magazine hits the mail, it will be available to any & all who have
web access.  Which is clearly and concisely outlined on the ARRL web page.

And now we have amateurs threatening to boycott the contest because they
don't have instant access to the results, but have to wait a few weeks to
get the access that they never had at all before?  To say nothing of the
surfacing of the usual anti-League rhetoric.

Yet not one word of complaint to date CQ not publishing their results to the
web.  Or 73, back when they sponsored contests.  Or any other national
society.  Nope, as usual, it's the ARRL taking the lumps.

Oh, and I noticed one other little thing.  Notably absent from the results
was at least some of the calls of those very amateurs complaining (which
ones?  I'm not going to single anyone out lest this be termed a "personal
attack," but you'll have to do your own research).  So, now I'm REALLY
confused.  If you didn't submit an entry to the contest, then what are you
kvetching about?

(OK, OK, before I get innundated, yes, I know they might have been amongst
the operators at a M/S or M/M operation or operating under another call from
other than their home QTH, but there's no way to know that unless indicated)

I don't know what will happen next year once the contest listings are,
sadly, dropped from QST.  We'll find out soon enough.  Meanwhile, why can't
we that the Contest Branch for making everything available, even if in
stages, instead of whining about how unfair life is?

I think the ARRL does try to encourage DX participation in the DX Contest. 
If you look at the rules at

         http://www.arrl.org/contests/rules/2002/intldx.html

you will see that the ARRL offers a certificate to any DX station that 
participates and makes 500 QSOs or more. The actual wording is:

         8.2.5. DX entrants making more than 500 QSOs on either mode will 
receive certificates.

I am sure that it costs several dollars to process and mail each of those 
certificates to each DX station. I see this as an extra effort on the 
ARRL's part to encourage participation.

I think the ARRL tries hard to run a good, fair contest. And I think the 
question of who sees the early results to be relatively unimportant.

That's the final comment you will hear from me on the subject.

"Discriminating against..."
So we have a victim and an oppressor here, eh?

FWIW, non-members can earn and receive certificates (and DX can earn 
certificates of participation) without cost or obligation.  I think 
this is taking advantage of the paying members - so who's the victim, 
then?

Radio Contesting in the US is controversial.  From what I've seen over 
the years, this is often not the case overseas.  National organizations 
in various countries have a much more enthusiastic (for contesting) 
constituency.  I've seen the magazines - contesting is all over the 
place!  The ARRL Contest branch, on the other hand, has a hard sell 
spending more dollars on contesting than the contesting community 
spends on the ARRL.

I am truly at a loss here. Why are people bitching so much? In the past you 
had to buy the magazine (or borrow it) to see the results & line scores. 
Now they are on the web for anyone to see. Sure the dues paying member gets 
to see them a little bit sooner. But now you can see them on-line without 
buying the mag or joining the league. Even the dues paying members are not 
going to get the line scores if they don't have internet access. That seems 
more discriminatory than letting DUES PAYING MEMBERS see the scores a bit 
sooner.

Don't like it? Pay the dues. Or better yet, sponsor your own contest. Give 
away all the forms, rules, results, etc. Process all the logs yourself. 
Spend your own money to publish & distribute the results.

Perhaps.

Line results should be free and immediate. It is the cost the sponsoring
organization incurs to encourage participation and maintain harmony in the
community. On the other hand, value-added things such as commentary and
analysis should be charged for on a fee-for-service (subscription) basis.

Very simple logic for a very simple problem.

The 2003 CQ 160 Contests in addition to changing to a 48 hour format is
limiting the operating time of Single Operator stations to a maximum of 30

Sylvan,

With all due respect, you're on the wrong page if you think that contest
sponsors do so to promote world amateur harmony. Maybe they should, but they
don't.

There are many reasons to sponsor a contest but at the core is a singular
purpose: to promote the organization.

I see nothing wrong with that. I see nothing wrong with having to buy CQ to
see the results of a CQ contest. I see nothing wrong with the ARRL offering
a sneak peak to those people who actually pay the bills. If taxation without
representation is wrong, isn't also representation without taxation an
affront to those who are taxed?

This isn't discrimination. To call it so is a grave insult to all the people
in the world who truly are victims of discrimination. Someone has to pay the
bills and I see nothing wrong with giving the people who do pay the bills
the right to a perk like early posting of contest results.

I own a TS-850.  Yes, it is possible to control vfo b from the
rs-232 port.  Why do you say one can't?

Open any modem program to the Kenwood serial port and
send

FB00007000000;

to it.  It will tune vfo b to 7 MHz.

With all due respect it seems that something has gone unnoticed.

Not only do the contesters need the sponsors but the sponsors need the
contestants. The sponsor pays with money and voluteener time while the
contestants pay with enthusiasm and their participation time.

I believe that in this sort of symbiotic relationship all contestants should
be treated equally. All contestants have the right to know their standing in
a contest at the same time -- irrespective of whether or not they are a
member of the sponsoring community. However, the sponsors, I believe, have
every right to charge for a value-added service fee (subscription) for such
things as color commentary,  statistics and other analysis, etc they can
create from the activities of the contestants.

The current approach has the appearance that there is a parasitic
relationship between the contestant and the sponsor instead of a symbiotic
one. I believe is not a good image for the amateur radio community as a
whole.

The Contest organisers making contest results a few weeks earlier to
members is trivial and should never had the bandwidth.

The peculiar thing I noted when I was batting in the smaller contests last
year, was the ONLY QSOparty in the USA to restrict international ham
participation is the NAQP (possibly the biggest !!) and a US based QRP
contest (forgot the name - but I had a ball across the Pacific).  While I
was enthused to make a lot of calls in these in 2001, 2002 had me in the
garden - knowing my log submission for these 2 contests would be tossed in
the bin.

It was my own fault for not reading these contest rules properly to begin
with, but at least it lets me understand what the Organisers really want,
and lets me make best use of my time.

We all play in a space bounded by rules- and half the challenge is working
out what they are..  and accepting them.

No harm, no foul.  This discrimination against non-ARRL Members policy is
about as stupid as one can imagine.

What skin is it off the ARRL to foster some goodwill amongst non-members?
What would be the cost to the League to do this?

How many here think that by doing so, a multitude are going to run out and
join the League?

Obviously you haven't operated NAQP RTTY! Not only are DX stations welcome,
they are elgible for awards! DX is not allowed to work DX, nor are they
counted as multipliers, but they count for QSO points! Approximently 30 DX
stations submitted logs for July NAQP RTTY. Try it, you might like it!

You must be joking Kelly.  International delivery one month later?  We wish.
That would almost make the ridiculous international subscription rate
justifiable.

Note the word subscription.

An opinion, and a valid one.

In my opinion, food should be free and no one should have to work. Rates 
should be over 100/hour, expect perhaps occasionally on 160 :)

Serious, that it a valid opinion, but opinion is not fact.

I think there is another contest that has an arbitrary rule that restricts 
participation.  You can't win the 10-10 contest unless you are a member of 
the 10-10 group...paid up to date of course.  You can have a 10-10 number to 
exchange, and can participate...but no certificate.

I was going to enter the contest that they have on Oct 10 because I thought 
it would be kind of cool to enter a contest in the middle of the week.  When 
I found out the rule, I thought it was rather strange.

HI, Tim,
        I have the same list as yours. I telephoned CRSA a few minutes
ago, and the staff confirmed the correctness of this list. 
        For prefixes:


BY              Club stations
BA,BD,BG        personal stations
BT              special event stations
B               1 by 1 calls, like B4R, B7K are contest stations
BI              IOTA operations
BV, BX, BM      Stations in Taiwan
BO              IOTA operations in Taiwan
BS7             Huangyan Is. (Scarborough Reef)
BQ9             Dongsha Is. (Pratas Is.)

I have been in correspondence with a gentleman at CQ headquarters, and
he believes that the entries for 9AA-9FZZ and 9MA-9RZZ are reversed. How
can I be sure ??

If anyone has contacts in BY, please can you forward this email to them.

Sure the frequency can be programed, but not the mode. Unless I am
really missing something. There is no A/B swap which would allow the
somewhat obvious solution of setting the A VFO then swapping the info
over to B.

Yesterday, the link to this PDF seemed to be missing (and the document itself 
probably as well).  Perhaps it hid under a rock, scared of all the reflector

It seems to be there now.  Try again.

Ohhh...duh! Its not very elegant, but FR1;FT1;MD3;FR0;FT0; should work then to 
put B in CW mode while having A active. That was the "something" I was really

Message-ID: <3D94ADF6.7E2630D4@cisco.com>

Hello Contesters,

Here's some great news about the California QSO Party
coming up on October 5-6.
http://www.cqp.org

As of 27 September 2002 02:09Z, all 58 California counties are
officially confirmed as being "on the air" for CQP. A big "thank you"
goes out to Bob, N6TV and all the stations who have registered at
http://www.cqp.org/Counties-Plan-2002.html

Keep checking in on this list, as it continues to grow every day!

Ken, K6LA sponsors a "First to 58" plaque that is awarded to
the first non-California station that contacts all 58 California counties.
http://www.cqp.org/Awards.html

The all time record for "First to 58" is WO4O, in 1998 at 23:35Z.
http://www.cqp.org/results/Records/rec_nca.htm

The NCCC also offers the Worked All California Counties (WACC)
award for anyone working all 58 California counties anytime, as part
of CQP or other operating.  Ken, K6TA administers this award.
See http://www.nccc.cc/wacc.html for more information.

See you in CQP!

Message-ID: <8EA8FEF9E96FAB4099D8B01D8412CB68014DCB1D@saebe004.nmp.nokia.com>

Hi,
My 100cents = 1 Euro into the discussion:

In the 80's I just got my score in the more local Finnish
Magazine.
Then later I got CQ at home and saw my score earlier
for CQ contests.
My friends were calling me over phone to get to know
thier scores.

1990's was mostly the same, but sometimes some email
discussion revealed scores even before the magazines got
to distant-from-the-organiser Finland.

Now we get the results without subscribing a magazine or
calling to a friend.
Service from ARRL is better than ever before.


Still, the audience whistles.
I did, too, until I realised the service is better
than ever. ARRL is the benchmark in this arena.

It would be nice to have the scores available to all
at the same time, but so what.. we get the scores in
a fair time on-screen.


If I want to enhance service from organisations, I will
not start from ARRL as they have online-service for the
scores unlike some other organisers.
Scandinavians have a contest and I believe I will start my
actions in this field by improving that contest's services
to the audience outside Scandinavia.
I believe we can improve the SAC-online scoring system, too.
It should not be too difficult, I think we do not have one..


73,
Jukka

Well, the ARRL made the 10 meter results available to
the public. But, not the &#34;Log Checking
Report&#34;, whatever the eff that is. I assume that
would be a way for me to see how and why my score was
reduced? Sort of like a UBN report? When will that
become available to the public? I would like to see
it, and maybe learn from it. And, decide if I will
ever care to participate in one of their contests
again. How do I get that without joining? Any ARRL
members on here know how to get this? A search of that
web site with the word &#34;LCR&#34; sure brings up
plenty of members only pages. I only worked abt
1100-1200 guys, so no big loss if I don't participate
this year. However, I would like this info to aid me
in my decision.

more with your entry will help defray the costs of mailing, printing, etc.
and would be greatly appreciated. PLEASE NO SASEs - they only get lost.

----------------

...and look for me during the contest weekend.  Due to some scheduling
concerns, I still don't know if I will be operating my home station,
portable from a nearby county, or helping my club out with one of our two
club stations, N3SH/3 Clarion/Forest County Line, or WA3SH/3
Westmoreland/Somerset County Line.

Disclaimer:  I am not now a member of the Nittany ARC and/or the Pa QSO
Party committee, just an active participant.  And I promise to not follow
the example of the QSO Party of the State of Chads (that's "chad" as in
paper ballots, not the DXCC entity) by innundating the reflector with daily
posts, probably just a reminder next week and one last one right before the
contest.

Hi folks,

Larry K7MI just posted notice that the latest version of Milog (Windows)
supports California QSO Party. The event is next weekend, don't miss it!
Especially don't miss Ginny N6RER, SSB all bands. But, back to the
theme.

Take a look at Milog; I'll do that Monday. I'd appreciate reading
what you think about it, either privatly or publicly.

My limited experience with Milog is very positive. Yet I'm very
reluctant to present the XYL with software that might
give her a problem.

All feedback appreciated.

Are you...

--> tired seeing the people who live in "??&@#%" win one contest after 
      another just because they are in a rare country/zone? 
--> tired exchanging 59/599 without knowing who's on the other side? 
--> tired operating only 4 hours in a contest? 
--> tired waiting months to see the final results? 
--> tired...?

If your answers are *any combination* of Yes/No/Maybe, then the 
Eu Sprint is YOUR contest!

Join the fun 4 times a year!

------------------------------------------------------

Eu Sprint Contest - Autumn 2002
(Download the FREE software: http://loja.kkn.net/~i2uiy/)

ENTRANTS: any licensed station may enter the Sprint. European stations can 
work everybody; stations outside of Europe can work only European stations. 

CATEGORIES: Single Operator ONLY. Only ONE signal may be aired at one time. 

DATES: 
EU SPRINT Autumn: 
* SSB: first Saturday in October - 5 October 2002 - managed by I2UIY 
* CW: second Saturday in October - 12 October 2002 - managed by OK2FD 

TIME: from 15:00 UTC until 18:59 UTC. 

BANDS: 20, 40 and 80 metres only. 
Pilot frequencies are: SSB: 14.250, 7.050, 3.730. CW: 14.040, 7.025, 3.550 

EXCHANGE: all of the following data MUST BE PART OF THE EXCHANGE: 
a) your callsign, 
b) the other station's callsign, 
c) your serial number starting from 001 (RST not required), 
d) your name or nickname. 
Please note that BOTH stations MUST repeat BOTH callsigns DURING the 
exchange. 
A valid exchange is: "OK2FD de I2UIY 118 Paolo" while "OK2FD 118 Paolo" is 
NOT a valid exchange. 

SPECIAL QSY RULE: if any station initiates a call (by sending CQ, QRZ?, 
etc.), he is permitted to work ONLY one station on the same frequency. He 
must thereafter move AT LEAST 2 (two) kHz before he may call another 
station or before he may solicit again (CQ, QRZ?, etc.) other calls. 

VALID CONTACTS: valid contacts are QSOs correctly logged and confirmed. 
Each operator may use ONE and ONLY one name during the Sprint. If the 
exchange is copied incorrectly, that operator will receive zero (0) points. 
In case of miscopied callsigns, both stations will receive zero (0) points

Message-ID: <F127ePag8DbLa1RHPVS0000cca9@hotmail.com>

Well, I have had good luck in the past with getting excellent advice here, 
so I thought I would put this one out...

I am setting up my "contest station" which will be for "semi-serious" 
contesting.  I know that using the standard hand mic with my rig is not the 
most optimum setup - kinda hard to log at the same time.  Mainly I S&P, but 
have been known to do (or at least attempt to do) a run.  I will be using a 
foot switch for PTT of course, but I am debating whether to use a headset 
mic or a boom mic.  What are the advantages/disadvantages to each?  They 
cost roughly the same, so that isn't a factor here, I just want to get the 
one that I will be the most useful for my particular needs.

Go with the headset.  Your guaranteed to have the mic in the correct
position, i.e. always in front of your voice keyer (mouth).

Ultimately the correct answer depends on the effectiveness of the
microphone over the air.  If the desk mic. has the edge in talk
power then all of the convenience of a headset mic does you no
good.

I prefer the headset myself. I usually am wearing headphones anyway so I 
can hear better & not disturb the rest of the house in the middle of the 
night. I have 2 of them one with a heil 4 element & one with a heil 5 
element. Neither of them are heil headsets. They both have fairly long 
cords so that I can move about in the shack some without leaving the mike, 
a real plus even when just ragchewing. I can go to the files or the other 
counter and still have the mike right there. When contesting I can change 
positions at will without having to worry about where the mike is a plus 
for when you are trying to stay awake in the slow times or just to find a 
more comfortable position.

Generally I'd go with the headset mike, but be aware of one
possible problem:  If you use a high-gain voice processor and
simultaneously monitor yourself with the headphones, there may be
some unintentional feedback from the headphones to the mike
causing distortion.  Either keep the mic gain down or the monitor
volume down and you'll be ok.

Dennis,

By far, the best option is the headset. A boom mic is just too
constricting.

With a headset, you can lean back, stretch, scratch, do all sorts of things
while speaking that you just can't do with a boom mic.

If you want to be married to the same position for the entire time you're
in the chair, then a boom mic will work. If you'd rather have the
flexibility to move around, choose different seating positions, improve
ergonomics on the fly, you can't beat a headset.

Be sure and give any prospective headset a good test drive, if possible.
Often, the ones that encompass the entire ear get heavy after a short
while. For some, this is a problem and the lighter Pro-Set style headsets
are better. For others, it's not a problem and they prefer the more
noise-cancelling effect of the large ear muffs.

Your mileage will vary according to your preference.

I think that you'll find the headset mike to be superior for several
reasons.

Assuming equal sound quality:

1.  I can never find the perfect positon for a boom, it is always in the way
of something
2.  I must follow the boom, so my position will ultimately become
cramped--with the headset I can lean back, stand up, etc., the headset's
mike will follow you and stay the optimum distance.

Message-ID: <20020930165710.62732.qmail@f3.avalon.hr>

As a young student of economy I learned a bit of a modern capitalistic way 
of making business, and guys in ARRL/CQ Mag you doing it all wrong. 

Contesting is soooooooo popular and there are bunches of people every day in 
front of my doors begging me to let them play in a contest, so this gave me 
an idea how community can make more money on them. 

Blackmailing with asking people money (memberships and such stuff) and in 
return giving out the results isnt really so popular among radioamateurs and 
some people usually get the results without even paying for it. We dont want 
that, right?!
Here's what I suggest. In every other hobby one must pay if he wants to take 
part in some compettition (yeah, even fishing) and so ARRL/CQ-Mag guys you 
should do the same.
You should ask people to pay you before the contest, okey as hamradio is 
specific hobby, you should ask to pay when people are submitting logs. So if 
one who sent log didnt pay simply wont be shown in the results. This way you 
will avoid all those that are not willing to pay and wants to read the 
results wont even be in them. Same way you will avoid them searching trough 
all the possible ilegal ways just to see what place they took.
Now you gotta admit this is just a brilliant idea. 

I do hope someone got the irony out of the text above.
One can only laugh on how CQWW/ARRL organizers are presenting their's 
contest results to the world. I guess CQ Mag and ARRL folks didnt notice 
that hamradio as a hobby is fading out and newcomers in this hobby appears 
in rare cases. Instead of making plans of how to make more people comming 
into our hobby you make fools out of the existing ones. 

Last week I was CQing on 20m and one ukraine guy came to ask me the postal 
mailing address for the SAC SSB Contest. He asked that in the name of the 
very active young kid's radioclub which I worked dozens of times in all 
sorts of contests. They have no internet, no cabrillo formats and their 
equipment is older then I am (19). Sad part of the story is that they're not 
the only one. There's a lot of amateurs in east europe which probably wont 
see their scores in any contest no matter they participated and sent their 
log.
Their avarage monthy pay for hard work is about 50 USD. So if they wanna 
read their CQWW results they have to work whole month for it, and if you add 
ARRL make it two months of hard work. But I'm sure you out there notice how 
your qso rate meter goes up on these people. 

We're not talking about free food here, you guys are making fools out of 
people!
If you want to make private contest, if you think you can charge your 
contest charge it so people will know what they're getting in return. You 
cannot invite all the people and taking money out of them with using pure 
blackmailing methods. I sure missed a line in rules saying if you want to 
receive the results get subsribed to CQ magazine or something like that. 
Same for ARRL, I have to wait months longer if I'm not a member and nobody 
said that within the rules. Maybe if I knew this I wouldnt work those 
contests at all. 

People at WAE and UA DX Contest understand this and so I greatly welcome 
their new standards. Thanks for the fantastic free scorebooks and broshures. 
I'm sure I'll be back in those ones, while I have strong doubts on showing 
up in ARRLs again.

Be patient Hrle.  The new scoring format for ARRL is changing effective the
first of the year.  Things should be different in the future.

What are policies of EU organizations that sponsor contests?  I would like
to see a side-by-side comparison of various organizations around the globe.

Does anybody know what the ARRL disclosure policy will be for 2003?  Plus,
the point he makes in his earlier post about monthly income of $50US does
put all this in quite a different light.  No email, no computers.  Hmmmmm...
My how one young lad can change a man's perspective.

Perhaps there needs to be some changes.  How about this...  Provide paper
contest results to all who submit a score and provide return postage?

Hrle , You are missing the point here. CQ results are available as they have
always been, no change and ARRL results are going to be available to you
sooner (via the internet) than they have ever been before. So why the
bitchin'?

Free logs and brochures, great. Will they pay your postage and also money to
upgrade your antennas and rigs? I don't get your point........ Or are you
just trying to stir the pot?

what is being missed is the simple fac tthat you can pick out stations that
are weaker in the headset and you can hear more disticlty and also through
the close by QRM. With a speaker all the cound goes by the waste side. Now I
know you are talking about the Mic part. For that the Mic on a Heil set Pro
5 is good. I sould say that you get  more room to move like everyoneis
saying with the headset plus you get the headset speakers and the mic
together. a heil boom is like more ropom taking at your station and may look
better. if you have the money get both and use the boom for casual dxing.
and the headset for contesting. That is what I plan on doing soon.

Why?

Personally, I prefer fast vox.

You can stand up, or put your feet anywhere you want, without
worrying about where the footswitch is.

CQ machine audio will activate the vox, so there's no separate PTT
interface to worry about there.

You don't have to deal with the RFI-prone parallel port for 
computer PTT, if the computer is your CQ machine.

Same for cw. 

Simpler is better.

Actually, Hrle's idea isn't at all ironical or brilliant.  Many contests
request either an SASE or a small donation to defray costs of mailing the
results out -- the Pennsylvania QSO Party, to name one, has been doing that
for years.  (So you say big deal, they only have a few hundred entries to
handle instead of a few thousand?  That's still quite a lot to handle -- and
beside the point)

But that's really beside the point.

The entire issue being raised here (again) about having to buy a magazine or
join an organization to get contest results is or soon will be a moot point.
Remember, the ARRL is moving the contest results to the web effective 2003.
So you won't have to join the League or buy QST or get someone to photocopy
the results for you anymore in just a few short months.

So now the argument is that there are some who don't have access to the
Internet and won't be able to read their results online?  Well gang, I'm
sympathetic, really.  But still... I suspect that no matter how hard they
try, it will prove to be virtually impossible for the organizers of these
big contests to get the results to everyone.  Mail gets lost or stolen.
People don't buy magazines.  Internet access is unavailable.  Results are
not translated into the appropriate local language.  CD-ROM's containing the
results get turned into coasters.  There will ALWAYS be something.

I think the real irony here is that for most of this year, there was nothing
but complaints about the ARRL removing the contest line scores from QST.
NOW the complaint is that they're not on the web fast enough!  Sheesh.

So rather than sit back and continually whine about how unfair (fill in the
blank) is about how they run the (fill in the blank) contest and how they
expect everyone to (fill in the blank) to get the results, why not work
together to help get those results to those having difficulties?

Hrle, if you want your friends to see the results, why not let some of us
know ?  I have no doubts that SOMEONE will volunteer to get them a copy of
the results, one way or another, merely out of goodwill.  Most of us are
like that.

But if you really choose to erroneously believe that you are being
"blackmailed" into buying a publication to get the results of a contest,
then don't operate in that contest.  I hope you don't choose to take that
route.  We'll miss you.

As a young student of economy I learned a bit of a modern capitalistic way
of making business, and guys in ARRL/CQ Mag you doing it all wrong.

Contesting is soooooooo popular and there are bunches of people every day in
front of my doors begging me to let them play in a contest, so this gave me
an idea how community can make more money on them.

Blackmailing with asking people money (memberships and such stuff) and in
return giving out the results isnt really so popular among radioamateurs and
some people usually get the results without even paying for it. We dont want
that, right?!
Here's what I suggest. In every other hobby one must pay if he wants to take
part in some compettition (yeah, even fishing) and so ARRL/CQ-Mag guys you
should do the same.
You should ask people to pay you before the contest, okey as hamradio is
specific hobby, you should ask to pay when people are submitting logs. So if
one who sent log didnt pay simply wont be shown in the results. This way you
will avoid all those that are not willing to pay and wants to read the
results wont even be in them. Same way you will avoid them searching trough
all the possible ilegal ways just to see what place they took.
Now you gotta admit this is just a brilliant idea.

I do hope someone got the irony out of the text above.
One can only laugh on how CQWW/ARRL organizers are presenting their's
contest results to the world. I guess CQ Mag and ARRL folks didnt notice
that hamradio as a hobby is fading out and newcomers in this hobby appears
in rare cases. Instead of making plans of how to make more people comming
into our hobby you make fools out of the existing ones.

Last week I was CQing on 20m and one ukraine guy came to ask me the postal
mailing address for the SAC SSB Contest. He asked that in the name of the
very active young kid's radioclub which I worked dozens of times in all
sorts of contests. They have no internet, no cabrillo formats and their
equipment is older then I am (19). Sad part of the story is that they're not
the only one. There's a lot of amateurs in east europe which probably wont
see their scores in any contest no matter they participated and sent their
log.
Their avarage monthy pay for hard work is about 50 USD. So if they wanna
read their CQWW results they have to work whole month for it, and if you add
ARRL make it two months of hard work. But I'm sure you out there notice how
your qso rate meter goes up on these people.

We're not talking about free food here, you guys are making fools out of
people!
If you want to make private contest, if you think you can charge your
contest charge it so people will know what they're getting in return. You
cannot invite all the people and taking money out of them with using pure
blackmailing methods. I sure missed a line in rules saying if you want to
receive the results get subsribed to CQ magazine or something like that.
Same for ARRL, I have to wait months longer if I'm not a member and nobody
said that within the rules. Maybe if I knew this I wouldnt work those
contests at all.

People at WAE and UA DX Contest understand this and so I greatly welcome
their new standards. Thanks for the fantastic free scorebooks and broshures.
I'm sure I'll be back in those ones, while I have strong doubts on showing
up in ARRLs again.

Message-ID: <fjik56c60g8eool.300920022040@designet-jsi>

This email is my comment on the "ARRL contest results" thread.

By my count, about 2/3 of the non-US contesters who have commented on this 
topic here on cq-contest say that they are not happy with the way ARRL is 
putting out the results. That fact speaks for itself. Those of you who believe 
you can change their feelings by forcing your own point of view on them will 
fail. The League should listen carefully to these comments from outside the US 
and do their best to understand and address the problem. In the proposal we 
submitted to the League on publication of contest results, we made the point 
quite strongly that coverage of contests must be treated as a global issue. 
This discussion reinforces that point.

Seems to me international participation is an absolute requirement for many 
ARRL contests. It's obvious to me that alienating DX stations in any way is not 
an acceptable result, and steps should be taken to avoid it. This is a tiny 
problem right now; this is the time to fix it.

a) Remove the one month delay - not a single membership will be lost,
b) Put a PDF of the contest results on the website for unrestricted download - 
just like the old QST article and listings - so it can be printed and shared by 
just about anyone, anywhere.
c) Possibly make the on-line Soapbox and/or the sortable database results part 
of the permanent Members Only area. This would allow anyone to get "basic" 
results in the PDF, while Members would have access to the "next level" of 
analysis and results.

I move around a lot, and sometimes stand and operate for a few minutes at a

Matt,

I own both radios.  I've had the IC-765 since 1989; it is one of my 
favorite radios which is why I still keep it around.  I bought the TS-850 
in 1998 as a traveling radio for Caribbean trips.  Both are excellent 
radios; the consideration of one vs. the other may be personal preference 
more than anything else.  Here's my thinking.

Both radios are excellent on CW.

IC-765 Advantages:

- Simpler, larger controls
- Slots for cascaded CW filters in both wide (~500) and narrow (~250)
- Standard on-board tuner (helpful for operation without an amplifier)
- Less internally-generated noise
- Separate keyer paddle and straight key (for computer keying) inputs
- Internal power supply (convenient for home use)
- Receive path brought thru jacks on rear panel (good for beverages of BPFs)
- Convenient connector types (RCA) for things like amp relay keying

TS-850 Advantages:

- CW reception on either LSB or USB
- CW spot function for zero beating
- External power supply (use a light switcher for traveling)

Some of the IC-765's advantages can be incorporated into the TS-850 thru 
modification.  Whether this is acceptable is up to you.

A couple things I don't like about the TS-850 are its use of DIN connectors 
for a lot of common connections, some of these are wierdo configurations 
that I defy you to find here in the USA.

My biggest gripe about the TS-850 is the fact that the !@$%^#&^ RIT cannot 
be cleared; the control has to be re-centered or the RIT function turned 
off.  Yes, I know that with an RS-232 connection your logging program could 
clear the RIT if it wanted to, but do that a few too many times and you'll 
find the pot at the end of the range.  Yeah - it's a pot like a TS-830 - 
1980's technology.

Although your questioned focused on CW, I'll add that IMHO the TS-850 is 
the better SSB radio.  The receive bandwidth on SSB is better than the 
IC-765, and the TS-850 has a real RF speech processor with adjustments 
where you need them.  However, the RIT still sucks.

FWIW

Dave/K8CC

Message-ID: <5.1.1.6.2.20020901092555.02721a90@pop.dc2.adelphia.net>

I've been wondering. When running in contests, I've noticed that sometimes 
stations answering tend to be .1-.2 kHz higher or lower than my 
frequency.  When this pattern emerges, if I check in the "opposite 
direction" I quite often find a relatively loud signal close to my 
frequency on that side.

I'm guessing that people are tuning me in and tending to "lean" away from 
the QRM, and it often seems as if I can improve my run rate by shifting 
frequency a little in the direction that the majority of callers are 
"coming from."

Am I just describing something that everyone else knows about, or am I all 
wet, or is this useful?

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Cheap QSL file cabinets
Message-ID: <006f01c251c6$3938e680$942bca97@oemcomputer>

Over the years, the cost of storing QSL cards has continued to rise and today a 
two drawer 4" x 6" file cabinet can cost $50 or more.  Looking for an 
alternative, I checked out the local OfficeMax and came up with what seems to 
be a viable alternative at a much lower cost.

OfficeMax currently has a sale on a plastic 6-drawer IRIS "Mega Chest".  It 
turn out thst these drawers are 5 1/2" high, just enough for most QSLs.  They 
are also 13' or so internal width, just wide enough for two rows of QSLs.  
Total cost for one of these 6-drawer units is now $40 - and each drawer holds 
almost as many QSLs as the steel $60 two drawer cabinet.

To finish off this system, I use red or orange 4"x6" file cards (two cards per 
divider, to give some strength to the divider) between each country and 
sometimes within the same country, if there are a lot of cards, e.g. DL, UA, F, 
EA, JA, I, etc.  OfficeMax also has somestick on label tabs that I put on top 
of the divider cards.  It seems to work fine.

Anyone wanna buy an old 8-high 2-drawer filing system?

This has been going on for years and years, and is simply a way some
use to "muscle" in on your run frequency. Moving higher will only
result in the "grabber" also moving higher, and very soon, you'll find
yourself unable to move in either direction.

Hi Ed -- Oh, sure, I know about the slide in close and squeeze tactic -- 
I've been in a few frequency fights too.  But I was thinking of the 
more-or-less innocent situation.  For example, I'm on 28002 and somebody in 
Michigan is on 28001.7, both running Europe.  We MIGHT hear each other, if 
the band is open wide and we had time to listen for backscatter, but it's 
more likely we just beat each other up in Europe without knowing it, at 
least for a while.  In that situation, it's my impression that a 100 Hz 
tweak can make a useful difference.

I would say that they simply zero beat poorly.

If you are running at a good rate, I wouldn't move to accomodate the
callers.  They seem to be calling just fine, no?

>> I would say that they simply zero beat poorly.

I've seen a lot of cw ops at various field day setups set the i.f.
shift for a comfortable tone, and then tune to the s-meter peak,
which is usually not the same as the cw offset.

Also, the cw pitch control can get you in trouble if the sidetone
does not track with it.

And tone-deafness plays a part sometimes, I'm sure.

I've been fortunate not to have experienced any deliberate "grabbing"
of a run frequency as described in this discussion.  I always assume
that they just couldn't hear me (lp<100w),  and I move on.  Or I switch
to s&p.  No harm done.  Keeps my b.p. down.

I analogize this to a "bump and run" move in racing - frowned upon,
but in the heat of battle it happens.  And sometimes the tactic can bite
you back.  Sometimes it's deliberate,  sometimes accidental.

Well, not necessarily. Pete did say that the offsets were clustered in one
direction, which doesn't sound like simply poor zero beating. He also said
that his run rate improved when he moved. There's his answer right there,
I'd say.

I know darn well that when I'm S&Ping and the guy I'm trying to work is
close to a bigger signal, I'll often lean away from the big signal to
improve our chances. I think Pete is just reporting the other side of the
same situation.

Also, Pete didn't ask what to do with the information, he just asked whether
we thought he had made a valid observation. There's a difference between the
information you can glean from the situation and your response to that
information. Depending on your station, your goals, propagation, etc., in
one case you might move in order to improve your rate, but in another you
might elect to stay to protect your frequency. If you have the strongest
signal on the band and you intend to be there for a few more hours, maybe
you can afford to be stubborn and stay right where you are. But if the
station that's a few hundred Hz from you and in your skip zone turns out to
be K3LR or W3LPL, maybe the smart thing to do is move.

Hi Jim and all

I went over the same question recently - I bought a TS-940 to use as a
second radio
beside my 1000MP, and was very disappointed with it - I've now replaced the
940
with an 850, having had an 850 in the early 90's.   The 850 is a much better
radio all
round.  The 940 looked and felt like a good solid radio, but it's electrical
performance
was poor.

TS-940's were manufactured between 1985 and 1992 (approximately) and are now
showing lots of  faults - they are mostly now inherently unreliable, but
maybe not as bad as
the TS-930's.  It was a great radio in its day, but things have moved on.
Buy the 850,
fit 1.8kHz SSB and 250Hz CW INRAD filters (not wider ones) and you won't
regret it for a
moment !

Hi!

There is still the same mistake that has been reported many times to CQ.

CQ WW SSB EU Record in Multi Multi was made by M6T on 1999.

Still there is 10 year old record in the file!!!

Message-ID: <OF78490696.786366B3-ON85256C29.004ABBED@ey.com>

Just my opinion, I think that the TS-940 is very limited by its filter 
selection for the cw op.  For SSB I really liked mine and found it very 
effective. 

-  Your filters on cw are either in or out, and there is no ability to 
switch from 500 hz to 250 hz, which I do all the time in cw contesting. 

-  Also, I don't think that there is provision for cascading 250 hz 
crystal filters. 

-  On my rig, which was tested to be in 100% good order, using the 
bandwidth narrowning feature was not as good as having the right filter at 
hand.

I ended up physically installing the 250hz filter, which meant that my cw 
filter modes were either wiiiide open, or very tight.  I didn't like that 
and sold the rig, which I otherwise really liked.

I think that this criticism doesn't apply outside of dx/contesting, and as 
a general rig it was very nice.

Sorry to start another "vs." thread, but I really want to know people's 
opinions of the 850 vs. 940, as I seriously have been mulling over whether 
to 
replace my 940 with an 850. Have financial restraints here, and a used 850 

can be had for what I think I could get for my 940, so what opinions does 
the 
contest world hold on this subject? Got my 940 equipped like I want it- 
Inrad 
filters, slow tuning mod, computer interface...and it works great, no 
problems. Do I keep what I got, and stop worrying about it, or is the 850 
a 
better rig? Thanks in advance. Jim, KZ1M.

We have two 940's here at the so2r setup and have had not one problem,
inherently or otherwise.  The rigs were both purchased used.  They perform
flawlessly.  I don't have a 950 to compare to, but for my money they are
very nice rigs.  One has been upgraded with the variable tuning mod, and
both have added cw filters.  Most of the use here is contesting, cw and rtty

Not a technical report, but a 4 year on air trial.

timestamp or postal stamp)

 

The subject of the emails should include the contest, the callsign and the 
category, e.g. HADX W9USC MS

 

Send ONLY TXT files using K1EA, N6TR, K8CC, EI5DI, WriteLog or any ASCII files. 
The file's name should contain a call sign of participant (yourcall.all and 
yourcall.sum). The log can be shown either by bands or time. Each QSO must 
contain callsign, time, band, RS(RST), QSO number (abbreviation) sent and 
received (even for check logs). 

 

Those who used computers for logging or contest scoring regardless if it was 
real-time or post-contest must submit electronic logs!

 

Summary sheet must include callsign, class, number of QSOs, multipliers and QSO 
points by band and altogether. 

 

Awards:

be deleted and a penalty will be issued in worth of triple of the points of the 
claimed duplicate contact. The entrant who claims points for duplicate contacts 
exceeding 2% of the total number of his contacts will be disqualified.  The 
points of contacts logged with incorrect information will be lost a triple 
penalty will be applied.

 

-         The maximum allowed time difference between QSOs in two logs is 3 
minutes. If it can be unambiguously determined which station logged the times 
incorrectly, only the points claimed by that station will be deducted. 

 

-         Packet is allowed for everybody. Self-spotting is prohibited.

 

-         The highest maximum allowed power for any classes during the contest 
is 1 kW.

 

-         Only one signal may be transmitted at any times by anyone. Stations 
braking this rule will be disqualified.

 

-         Only those multipliers will be accepted, which either have submitted 
logs or are reported in at least two other logs.

 

-         Band and mode changes are allowed only after 10 minutes after the 
first QSO on that band and mode. The 10 minutes period starts at the first 
contact logged in that band and mode. 

 

-         The decision of the contest committee is final.

 

 

 

The contest committee maintains the right to appoint observers for the contest. 
The observers document and report suspected cheating to the Contest Committee. 
Based on the evidence provided the Committee has the right  to disqualify 
participants. The callsigns of stations and those of their operators 
disqualified for proven cheating will published to the international contesting 
community and they loose their right to participate in the contest for 5 years.

O.K.....What's "EXPANDED"?

I see nothing on the site that has not normally been in the magazine.

Nothing new...just a transfer of information.  In short, a reduction
of contest coverage.

Even the league gives us more.

I'm appalled by the lack of controversy on this topic.

Hi all,

Interesting sidebar to the discussions of "contesting rigs".

In the Sep/Oct NCJ (which arrived today) there's a great article (part 1 of 2 
parts) which is a play by play of the seesawing between the teams which 
eventually finished as the top 5 in WRTC 2002. In a sidebar to that article, 
the hardware was listed. There were 10 radios which were selected by the 
individual team members for their own use. 

The envelope please ...

1 was an FT1000MP, Mark V
1 was an FT1000D
1 was a Kenwood TS-850, 
and 7 were FT1000MP's

Interesting huh?

73 de Bill, W1HIJ/6
and no, I don't work for Yaesu, but I do own an FT1000D and an FT990.

I have had multiple PLL failures on both of my 940s.  Best I can tell
they're the result of bad solder connections but until I get around to
retouching *all* the joints on the RF board probably won't know.  

It's unfortunate as when they work, they really do work quite well.

Message-ID: <721D3436A7C2B344A301FD4A413C71A907916B@kosh.ARRLHQ.ORG>

As N6TR posted last week, an error was found in the original reporting of the 
ARRL International DX CW results.  The error was not as widespread as 
originally thought and in fact affected only a total of eight station's scores: 
AA1K, K0EJ, K1AR, K3ANS, K8CC, K9NW, N2RM and W4ZV.   The scores for those 
stations have been recalculated and will be accurately shown in the results 
pages on the ARRL Web when they are opened (once the corrections are made to 
the various files involved.)

Thank you for your patience as we addressed this problem We apologize for the 
problem. Thanks also to the quick eyes of W4ZV who brought the problem to our 
attention, and thanks to N6TR for quickly identifying the problem and 
correcting it.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Your Input Please!  NCJ Nov/Dec Contesting on a Budget
Message-ID: <68.251da44f.2aa75dbc@aol.com>

Thanks to all for your insightful and poignant inputs for this column.  We 
have an interesting topic for this issue and I look forward to your 
responses.

The topic is "The Nickel Fix That Saved Your Bacon".  I will explain the 
origin of the "nickel fix" at the beginning of the article, but I am 
basically looking for inexpensive and innovative ways that you solved 
last-minute problems and went on to successfully complete a contest.

The "cheap fixes' may include that clamp-on RF choke that kept RF out of the 
computer, the bypass capacitor you added to your rotor box to keep the 
indicator needle from swinging with your RF voice peaks, that post-it note 
that reminded you to watch the grid current on the amp, or even that set of 
labels that you attached to your wiring behind the radios that helped you 
sort out problems when Murphy struck.

A second, and equally interesting aspect of cheap and simple fixes includes 
innovative "work-arounds" to solve last-minute problems.  I've heard "urban 
legend" stories of using a two hole amp with just one tube (at reduced power, 
of course), making emergency tube substitutions in amps, using a VOM as a 
rotor indicator, using a rope and pulley arrangement to replace a defective 
rotor, etc.  Give us your "war stories" of economical and innovative 
work-arounds, we'll withhold names to protect the innocent if requested.

Again, an enormous "thanks in advance" for the inputs you provide that will 
entertain and inform the contest community.  I look forward to hearing from 
you.

Paul, K5AF

We are having a survey in http://smsdx.net also asking about the "best 
rig".... the FT-1000 is also in the first position.

IARU Region 1 SSB Field Day
---------------------------

Hello Contester,

this weekend the IARU REGION 1 SSB Field Day will take place

*********** 07.09.2002 13:00 to 08.09.2002 12:59 ************

Please give the /p stations a call, they will be happy.

Asian stations do accept calls from Field Day stations while AA 
the Region 1 stations will be so clever to give to you two different
numbers 
"age and serial number".
If you are doing like this, it would be superb.

Stations outside Germany are welcome and have a real opportunity 
to participate in the categories

Class D for /p  outside Germany
Class F for fixed stations
Checklogs

Here you will find the rules

http://www.darc.de/referate/dx/fedcf.htm

The Field Day Committee of the DARC will be happy, if you 
are sending your electronic log to

fieldday@darc.de

in order to varify the qsos made while the contest.

We have a full electronic log checking.

You will get a confirmation of the log entrance, a website
where you can find the conformation and if you are really
active a nice certificate.

See you in the contest

I use the FT1000MP, and it's a fine rig. But in terms of raw SSB 
receiving sensitivity it's a negligible improvement over my old 
faithful 940. All sorts of superior bells and whistles, many of which 
are useful, or even vital on typical busy bands and for split 
operation, but better sensitivity? - no. Under very quiet conditions 
on 10M, with an almost empty band, the 940 will pull out really weak 
ones better than the 1000MP. I've tested them side-by-side. Maybe the 
new TenTec will make a breakthrough in that respect?

Make sure your high gain preamp is turned on in the MP's menu setup.

I've found several MP owners who were not aware of that "feature."

The solder joints around the PLL circuits are not generally to blame.
It is within the little tin can which actually holds the crystal. I
had 2 940s, and both developed the same problem.

The solution is to melt the wax out of the can, resolder the
connections inside, and that should fix it. Milt Lord, the Radio
Doctor did both of mine, and as I recall, didn't refill the cans with
wax or whatever melted out.

Hope this helps.

I fixed several power supply problems by opening it up and noticing that there
is a footprint on the PC board where a filter *would* normally be installed,
usually just jumpered over with bare wire.  About 10 turns of something like 18
or 20 gauge insulated wire, bifilar wound around a torroid would work in place.
Just make sure to wire it correctly (in-line) so you don't short out the AC
line instead!

I've ran into this one myself Jamie. My son
works in the computer field, and he said they
used Antec cases back when I was having
the problem. This one I use is a 300 watt PS
and the case is heavy. I think it ran me around
100 bucks or more 2.5 years ago. But it has
been worth it. I'm sure there are probably 
other good ones out there. The Antec web site
is at: http://www.antec-inc.com/

Come to think of it, the P 200 my wife uses is
an Antec case also. When we first built this pc,
it was with parts from a computer show, and I
had reservations when I bought that case. It was
around 40 bucks I think. But it would destroy
40/80 and 160 for me, so I had to do something.

I just remembered about www.pricewatch.com and
did some snooping there. You have to click on
"Cases" and then a page of brand names show up.
I clicked on "Antec" and found some pretty decent
prices there.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] RTTY Callsign Database Offer
Message-ID: <022f01c2543d$4fdb3720$6401a8c0@don>

I am now offering my master RTTY callsign database file in ASCII
form.  The file comes in zipped form and is called mstrtty.zip.  It can
be downloaded off my RTTY page at http://www.aa5au.com/rtty.

Unzipped you will find the file mstrtty.cal which can be used with WF1B
and possibly some other RTTY programs.  WriteLog users must use
the file available on my WriteLog website http://www.geocities.com/writelog.
Both files contain the same callsigns.  You may need to rename the file to
work with your program.  If you wish to use the file as a master database
with WT4I Cabrillo Tools, you will need to rename it master.cal.

The callsigns are from stations worked in RTTY contests for many
years and are an accumulation of lists generated by others, callsigns from
major contest log checkers and my own RTTY contest logs.  The file is
regularly checked by Ed, K4SB, against the FCC database and old USA
calls are removed.  The present file contains 21,359 callsigns.  Because of
the size of the file, it may bog down some DOS programs.  Use at your
own risk.

If you are going to be operating CQ/RJ WW RTTY this month using a callsign
that is not included in the file and would like that callsign added, reply to
this E-mail with the callsign and I will add it to the file.  To determine if a
certain callsign is in the file, download the ASCII version, unzip the zipped 
file,
open mstrtty.cal in WordPad and do a search of the callsign with CTRL+F.

If you are going to a DX location for the contest and would like this 
information
included in next week's VK2SG RTTY DX Notes, let me know I will include
it in the Notes.  If you want a call added to the file, but wish to keep your
operation a secret until the contest, I will honor that request as well.

I feel that getting to know how to use the receiver section of the
transceiver is very important.  I have heard the knocks on the TS 850 on 160
Overload) and also have been in first hand competition with the TS 940.  In
1988 I was helping N4HOH in a small M/S effort in the CQ WW SSB.  Nearby was
M/M K4JPD.  I was running stations on 10 SSB with my FT 980 somewhere around
28.760 and at a lull Steve K4JPD broke in and asked what I was using.  He
said he could hear the stations I was working but the QRM was so bad he and
the 10 meter op could not run as I was doing.  I am sure his signal was 5 or
10DB more than my 1KW to a TH7.

He and the 10 meter Op had very little experience on the TS 940 but I don't
believe the FT 980 is that much better than the 940.
Learning to use the receiver system (filters, offset tuning) is important as
it was years ago with our separate receivers.  Maybe its tunable ears such
as N4PN (ex W4YWX) is supposed to have but knowing the receiver and using it
to the max helps!

Here is a note from 1997 that I posted to the cq-contest reflector for
Carlos - PY1CAS and others.  All the more applicable today, although
as the manufacturers continue to shrink the components it may be
more difficult to retrofit a commercial filter.  In some power supplies
today the pads for the filter have been eliminated as well as the
components.

--John   W0UN
----------------------------------------
Carlos, many of the new computers are omitting the RFI filter in the power 
supply that keeps the garbage from the switching mode supply from entering 
the AC mains. I have had excellent results (as have others who have taken 
my suggestion) in virtually eliminating the interference by replacing the 
AC connector on the back of the power supply with an integrated AC 
connector and RFI filter such as the Corcom 6EF1. The mounting hole for the 
connector must be widened a few millimeters on each side--something that 
can be done with a file in a minute or two. Just make sure there is enough 
room behind the connector position to clear the somewhat longer RFI filter. 
In one case that I made the modification I needed to bend a capacitor out 
of the way. Some power supplies have a place on the circuit board for a 
filter but have eliminated the components to save some money, and have just 
placed jumpers in the positions where the components had been. It would be 
possible to make a new filter and add it to the existing location--or to 
add it between the circuit board and the existing connector----but the 
commercial Corcom filter is probably the best and easiest way to go. The 
commercial filter has 1.0 mH coils (bifilar rated at 6 amps in series with 
each side of the line. On the computer side each side of the AC line has 
2800 pF to circuit ground. On the AC mains side of the filter there is a 
9000 pF capacitor across the mains (not to ground). Just make sure that you 
use capacitors that are rated to be installed across the AC mains! The 
filters are available from most US electronics suppliers for around $10 or 
so, but can often be found in the surplus market for $1-$2. I used the 3 
amp version (3EF1, a little marginal) because I found some for $1. There is 
also a 3EF2 and a 6EF2 that will work and may be even easier to fit inside 
the power supply--their terminals come out the top/bottom rather than the 
end. If adding and AC mains RFI filter doesn't completely cure the problem 
then additional RFI suppression will be needed--but in my cases (3 
computers) it eliminated the problem. gl es 73 John W0UN

I recently bought an Antec SX-630 ATX case from Provantage with a 300-watt 
PS -- seems like I paid about $70 plus shipping for the whole thing.  Very 
sturdy, two fans, easy access, yet little fan noise, and the PS appears to 
be totally silent for RFI.

That being said, many inexpensive power supplies these days leave out 
essential AC line filter capabilities.  you can put this right by swapping 
the power input jack for one of the Qualtek units with an integral AC line 
filter -- I think they took these over from Corcom, whose filters John W0UN 
recommended a few years ago.

Larry:

First observation:  the identification requirements for USA amateur radio
stations operating in contests and for stations on DXpeditions in US
territories is in 97.119 as you state:  the station must transmit its
assigned call sign on its transmitting channel at the end of each
communication.  (If the every 10 minutes condition kicks in they got a real
problem-like  generator/antenna/op asleep problems!)   Considering the goal
of the DXpedition or contest usually is maximum Qs and minimum dupes the
station at the bottom of the heap kind of has a built-in incentive to make
sure everyone listening to the channels knows who it is causing the ruckus.

Second:  Part 97 does not define the term "communication" or "message".
Neither does Part 2 of the FCC's Rules, which contains many definitions from
the international Radio Regulations.   Looking at the rules, Section 97.3
defines a "message forwarding system" as including communications sent from
the control operator of one station to the control operator of other
station(s), while Section 97.111(a) is authorized two-way "communications"
and the word "messages" appears in the rule in each sub-paragraph.  Section
97.111(b) is authorized one-way communications and the word "transmissions"
appears repeatedly.  In Section 97.117, International communications, the
words "transmissions" and "messages" appear.   Section 97.115 is Third party
communications and the words "messages" and "communications" are both used.
Unless someone wants to pick a fight about how many angels are on the head
of a pin, after the obligatory fight about whether or not they are angels of
course, I'd say as a practical matter the terms are pretty interchangeable.

If  this is a real problem about to effect the fabric of the universe, you
might want to take it up with the contest sponsor or whoever is going to
give country credit for the DXpedition.  And they can police it.  I really
can't see Riley getting into this one.

A current topic of discussion among the radio amateurs on the CQ CONTEST
REFLECTOR has to do with the identification requirements for USA amateur
radio stations operating in contests and for stations on DXpeditions in US
territories; as set out in 97.119.


?97.119 Station identification.
(a) Each amateur station, except a space station or telecommand station,
must transmit its assigned call sign on its transmitting channel at the end
of each communication, and at least every ten minutes during a
communication, for the purpose of clearly making the source of the
transmissions from the station known to those receiving the transmissions.
No station may transmit unidentified communications or signals, or transmit
as the station call sign, any call sign not authorized to the station.


The question is about a station that makes a series of consecutive contacts
with other stations on the same frequency and mode and only sends his own
call after being asked for it or after several contacts.  Each contact
consists of acknowledging the callsign of another station calling him and a
signal report or contest exchange.

Does each individual contact constitute a "communication" or does the series
of contacts constitute a "communication" requiring identification every 10
minutes?
In other words: Is it required under 97.119 to give your callsign at the end
of each contact with another station?

Message-ID: <3D7807FA.4090400@tampabay.rr.com>

tnx -

...for over a year now I have not had the station set up for SO2R, two 
rig changes as well as a station reconfiguration - wanna use the Sprint 
to get back in the groove...have done everything either single radio or 
multi-op since then and want the single op ability to return to SO2R.

...have acquired a Heil audio mixing box, now for the next question - 
since I have the two rigs at the contest site - not here - I would like 
to fabricate my cables for the audio ahead of timwe but do not remember 
how the audio outputs of the two following rigs (their speaker jacks) 
appear.

YAUSU GUYS, look on the back of your rigs for me - what are the speaker 
jacks?

FT990 - I think this one is a push on RCA plug, have the service manual 
here and it looks to be that anyhow...

FT1000D - forget, am worried it is funky due to the dual receive option

I hope to use each as a monaural source to be mixed left into left right 
into right...so need to know if I need two push on RCA plugs one for 
each source or is the speaker output for the 1000D a 1/4" stereo or mono 
plug etc...

THANKS!  The station (and rigs) are at my folks place and if I can get 
an answer here I will be able to have the cable ready when I get there 
for the contest this weekend versus a last minute run to Radio shack for 
an adaptor or cable (please tell me neither of these is a DIN cable)

I don't think it's fair to say that the FCC doesn't care.

I get the impression (and I could be wrong) from Bill Cross's answer that IF
the station in question is under FCC jurisdiction, and it identifies itself
at least once every 10 minutes, the FCC isn't going to be concerned.  It all
comes down how you define "communication," which is currently not defined
within FCC rules.  Which means, use some common sense.

It sounds more like Bill is trying to politely say "you really don't need or
want us to rule on this, do you?"

When asked "If you had been in President Clinton's place, would you have
resigned?",
Republican Member of the House of Representatives Dick Armey replied:

"If I were in the President's place, I would not have gotten a chance to
resign.  I would be laying in a pool of my own blood, hearing Mrs. Armey
standing over me saying, "How do I reload this damn thing?"

Larry:

First observation:  the identification requirements for USA amateur radio
stations operating in contests and for stations on DXpeditions in US
territories is in 97.119 as you state:  the station must transmit its
assigned call sign on its transmitting channel at the end of each
communication.  (If the every 10 minutes condition kicks in they got a real
problem-like  generator/antenna/op asleep problems!)   Considering the goal
of the DXpedition or contest usually is maximum Qs and minimum dupes the
station at the bottom of the heap kind of has a built-in incentive to make
sure everyone listening to the channels knows who it is causing the ruckus.

Second:  Part 97 does not define the term "communication" or "message".
Neither does Part 2 of the FCC's Rules, which contains many definitions from
the international Radio Regulations.   Looking at the rules, Section 97.3
defines a "message forwarding system" as including communications sent from
the control operator of one station to the control operator of other
station(s), while Section 97.111(a) is authorized two-way "communications"
and the word "messages" appears in the rule in each sub-paragraph.  Section
97.111(b) is authorized one-way communications and the word "transmissions"
appears repeatedly.  In Section 97.117, International communications, the
words "transmissions" and "messages" appear.   Section 97.115 is Third party
communications and the words "messages" and "communications" are both used.
Unless someone wants to pick a fight about how many angels are on the head
of a pin, after the obligatory fight about whether or not they are angels of
course, I'd say as a practical matter the terms are pretty interchangeable.

If  this is a real problem about to effect the fabric of the universe, you
might want to take it up with the contest sponsor or whoever is going to
give country credit for the DXpedition.  And they can police it.  I really
can't see Riley getting into this one.

A current topic of discussion among the radio amateurs on the CQ CONTEST
REFLECTOR has to do with the identification requirements for USA amateur
radio stations operating in contests and for stations on DXpeditions in US
territories; as set out in 97.119.


?97.119 Station identification.
(a) Each amateur station, except a space station or telecommand station,
must transmit its assigned call sign on its transmitting channel at the end
of each communication, and at least every ten minutes during a
communication, for the purpose of clearly making the source of the
transmissions from the station known to those receiving the transmissions.
No station may transmit unidentified communications or signals, or transmit
as the station call sign, any call sign not authorized to the station.


The question is about a station that makes a series of consecutive contacts
with other stations on the same frequency and mode and only sends his own
call after being asked for it or after several contacts.  Each contact
consists of acknowledging the callsign of another station calling him and a
signal report or contest exchange.

Does each individual contact constitute a "communication" or does the series
of contacts constitute a "communication" requiring identification every 10
minutes?
In other words: Is it required under 97.119 to give your callsign at the end
of each contact with another station?

I have a Speed Stream 5260 DSL modem that is not affected by any RF. 
You are assuming that the modem is the cause. A few things to try/consider.

1. Have you by-passed the router to make sure that is not the source?
2. Have you tried different Cat 5 patch cables?
3. Have you tried a different NIC card?

The RF could be entering the system from several points in the chain.

Router to NIC. Just some thoughts from this end. (Thanks goodness I dont
have to trouble shoot RF in our 70+ LANS in the local school district.)

I guess he's a ham, although I don't know his callsign.  But I think hams
in the FCC are rarer than they used to be.

Prose Walker W4BW, former FCC chairman, is still quite active.  He can
often be found on 40 CW.

I just got back from Las Vegas and there were a whole bunch of e-mails
asking me how to turn on the MP's high gain preamp. See, I _knew_ there
were a bunch of folks unaware of that setting!

I'm a Kenwood guy, and don't even own an MP, but I know it's in the
menus somewhere. From one of the e-mails I received, I think it may be
menu function 8-4. The default is "Flat," and that is not the one
you want. When the background noise is quiet, you need more gain than
the flat setting provides.

Maybe an MP owner can post the correct menu and setting.

 Wonder if anyone out there is still using a Kenwood TS830S ?

 I use mine for my 2nd radio when I do SO2R. I haven't used it for
about a year since I didn't have a station set up. I am now putting a
small station back together since we recently moved into a place where
I can have antennas again.

I am experiencing the following symptoms :

When I first turn on the radio it seems like the receiver is almost
dead. The CW Calibrator has no reading/or very low on the S meter.
If you let the radio "warm up" for about 5 minutes or so the receiver
starts to return to normal and the S meter readings seem to be OK. I
have adjusted the ANT and MIX coils per the instructions in the manual
but this has not resolved my problem. Maybe I need a new driver tube
-12BY7A ???

 Anyone ever remember having this problem ???

That's correct. It's menu item 8-4, and you need the "Tuned" condition.

To answer K6LLs question, the MP manual shows Menu 8-4,  receiver Front-end
RF Amplifier

Flat    A broadband amplifier with flat response

Tuned     A seperate tuned amplifier for low and high bands.

In a short listening session I cannot tell much difference in received
signal in either position.

Jeff,
I still use an TS-830S.  I don't think your problem
is the driver tube as that is just used for transmit.  You
might try removing the covers, divide the rig into
sections with some cardboard, and see if you can
determine where the problem is by heating with a
hair dryer.  If you can make the rig return to normal
quicker by heating a section you have narrowed the
search.  If I had to take a guess, I would suspect
something in the AGC circuit.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] MP (Mark V) and the "front end"
Message-ID: <177.e1855a0.2aaad77d@aol.com>

Coincidentally with Dave's (K6LL) posting of info about the front end 
selection via menus on the MP and Mark V, I had a chance to do the INRAD IF 
Amp mod for a friend. Here's an email I sent this morning to yet another 
friend on my experience ...

****************************************************************
"I had the opportunity to put the Inrad IF amp mod into a Mark V for a friend
last night. The results were nothing short of impressive."

"The original setting for the r-IF gain (Menu 9-1) was 13. We played a bit
and finally settled on a new value of 10. On 40 the S-meter noise level
indication dropped from about S7 to about S4 with NO perceptible (by ear)
difference in strength of a received CW signal. On careful watching, the
S-meter indication of an actual signal dropped about one-half an S-unit."

"On 20 the indicated noise level dropped from S2/3 to zero, again with no
perceptible difference in signal strength."

"I also told the owner about the tuned versus flat front end for 80 and
40. The combination of that and the Inrad mod made the Mark V as quiet as, or 
a
bit quieter than my FT1000D on 80 and 40."

****************************************************************

Unfortunately, I'm not an MP owner so I can't put my hands on a manual. 
However the menu entry for varying the pre-amp is called "Front End" and the 
settings are "Flat" and "Tuned". You can have the radio on an antenna and a 
signal and change the settings to hear the result for yourself.

I have the ts-850 now with the rigblaster when on the 20M band the alc goes 
wild and there is something that is maxing it out like some rf or soemthing. It 
is like a roar in the head set. Anyone have this trouble?

Dave

You have it correct it is menu 8-4 Front End RF Amp Selection and the
choices are flat/tuned.  The tuned selection uses "optimized" amps.

One thing I found in the 10m contest is that depending on condx, it
sometimes helps to use IPO.  I know the manual says for low band high
qrm condx... but it does work on high band weak signals as well under
some condx.

As for KW's... I loved my 830 but have not been happy with any KW
offering since that.  I hate the filter selection method.  I don't
want to toggle through all of the filters... I want to select the one
I want.  I also don't like the no RIT clearing button thing.  I also
find the button layout to be non-ergonomic (to my liking).  I also
don't like not having a separate VFO knob for the sub-rcv (KW has VFO
A/B buttons).  KW also doesn't have band data out (I don't think
using the logging software for this is a good engineering solution
and since I have an automated switching station... plus this is just
what I need, to have to get even more ports to work in a PC,
especially since LPT ports are now considered "legacy" and are being
phases out...yuck).  I could go on but those are all reasons why I
abandoned KW long ago for Icom and Yaesu.  Also, I don't think DSP
filtering alone is enough (yet,maybe some day?), so these days the
only radios left that meets my requirements are made by Yaesu
(1000-MP/D).  If someone comes up with a better radio, I'm always
looking.

Go get yourself some contact cleaner.  Spray all the switches and the small
interconnecting wire pins.  May can just pull them loose and stick them back
together.

You probably have some corrosion from sitting around.  Humidity etc.   You
may also need to loosen any mounting screws on the PCB's and re-tighten
them.

I was guest op last year in a 10-meter contest.  At the end of the
contest, I told the owner that he should check his FT1000MP because the
sensitivity was lower than any I had ever experienced and I knew I had
missed at least a few QSOs because I couldn't get enough gain to copy
the call and exchange.  He then recalled that he had been using that MP
on 160 meters on a noisy occasion and had turned off that internal
preamp.  Mine had always been on, so it didn't occur to me to check
his.  So, I learned the hard way that it does make  a difference in weak
signal circumstances.

73,

John, K4BAI.

Not just ANY contact cleaner but CAIG Labs contact cleaner.
Gold or DeOxIt depending on what you are cleaing.  Not cheap by
any means, but by far the best.

This is the TRUTH.  I have a couple of flakey Jones plug/jack combinations 
in my rotator wiring that used to give me fits till I bought an intro kit 
from Caig.  You don't need very much, it last a long time, and it really works!

I have found other uses for changing the preamp settings.
On 10 meters, when I have a lot of noise, turning the preamp off
and sometimes adding a bit of attenuation helps a bunch in
making things readable.
  On 80/160 during bad noise/static conditions turning the preamp on
seems to make things more readable.
I've had this radio since 97(I think) and I still learn stuff all the time!

I had never heard of the Caig products until I bought some from
Ten-Tec for a mod installation in 95 or 96. You really don't need much
I still have both cans I bought then!
It really , really works!

Subject: [CQ-Contest] TS-870 (S)
Message-ID: <Pine.LNX.4.21.0209091553290.18120-100000@fresno.akorn.net>

I got rid of one of my FT-1000MPs prior to going to Finland and I sold the
other one while I was there.  It is a FB radio, but I got tired of hearing
about key clicks and something about the receiver that I can't explain.  
Yes, I know there is a mod for the key clicks.  I've also been tortured
with an RIT problem that makes the RIT jump all over the place when tuned.  
I had both radios fixed, and the problem came back.  Very frustrating.

Anyway, I have been using an TS870 for my remote control station and in
WPX we used it on one of the stations.  Kenwood radios just have the best
fidelity for whatever reason.  The radio was also easy to use and isn't
laced with a bunch of do-dads that I don't need or use.  That is when I
got it in my head to give it a try and get rid of the 1000MPs.

My first contest with the radios was the NAQP.  Unfortunately, the
receiver didn't pass the test.  Under loud signal conditions, the receiver
couldn't handle it.  I have the TS-870 and not the TS-870S.  In the S
model, they fixed some things with the frontend related to overload like I
experienced.  There is also a documented fix for this problem for the
TS-870.

Between NAQP and the Sprint I decided I would get the modification done
and while researching some other stuff about the radio I ran across some
documents and emails about installing a 1K mechanical filter in the front
end, replacing the existing filter (very wide).  I talked to George and
International Radio about this idea, and he told me about a German ham who
had recently published an article in the German CQ magazine about
installing an Inrad 600 hz (I believe) filter and switching it out on SSB.  
I don't care for SSB, so switching out the filter didn't matter to me.  I
went ahead and ordered 2 400Hz filters from George and installed them in
the radio at the same time I did the modification.

This past weekend was the CW Sprint.  A contest with some VERY large
signals and a great test for receiver crunch.  The results were great.  
The radio didn't crunch at all and the DSP filtering in addition to the
mechanical filter gave me the option to narrow up the passband when
needed.  I also like the IF shift on this radio better than the MP for
some reason.  I finished with the most QSOs I've ever made in the Sprint,
so I think the radios weren't a problem.

One of the 870s (K1TTTs) had a pre-existing problem that I discovered
right before the contest (thanks N2NT and W8LX).  N2NT was HUGE on 20 and
it sounded like he had a chirpy signal and clicks.  I told him so, and
W8LX jumped in and said I was the one sounding chirpy.  So I switched
radios, and the problem went away.  I'm taking it over to W6XA today to
get that fixed up.

Bottom line:  I really like the radio.  It is small without knobs designed
for children.  It has nice step attenuation, variable CW width, great IF
shift ability, smooth RIT, key & keyer input jacks, and receive antenna
input (easy mod).  I've had nothing but good signal reports from the
critical CW ops on 40M.  I've also heard that this radio is very good for
in band phase noise control.  I have not tested it yet, but that was
another thing that was bad with my MPs.

Negatives: The radio will only work on one sideband now (CW reverse).  It
doesn't interface with my auto-switching TopTen band controller.  And,
K4BAI has to learn how to use another radio for SS.  I think I'll send him
down one to play with before the contest.

FYI & 73

Bill Fisher, W4AN


PS:  George and I tried to get a translation of the German's article but
they wanted money to do it, so we passed.  I would contact George at
International Radio if you want more information /

Nice info Bill.  Thanks for sharing it.  I just received my 3rd TS-870S
today.  Although I don't do much CW contesting with it, it takes the cake
(and a few plaques as well) on RTTY.

I just wanted to let everyone know that the TS-870S is a little hard to find
new.  I called around a few of my regular places and no one stocked them.
I did find that they stocked them at AES in Orlando.  Ordered it last Thursday
and received it today.  HRO told me it was not a special order item.

I do occasionally get the overload you were talking about, but only on 20M
when the band is fully of strong signals.  I take care of that by using AIP 
which
quiets the receiver nicely and allows me to still copy weak RTTY signals in
between strong ones.

I bought the 3rd one for two reasons.  I just had to send one in for repair for
a problem similar to what you said except there was total distortion of signal
both TX and RX.  This was intermittent.  As long as I used the radio in a 
contest
and transmitted on it, it ran fine.  If I took a rest period and did not turn 
the
radio off, when I came back, everything was distorted.  If I turned the radio
off for about 30 mins and turned it back on, it worked fine again.  Finally, it
broke like that for good.  I sent it to AVVID two weeks ago and do not think
I'll have it back in time for CQ/RJ RTTY, so I bought another one.  The guy
at AVVID told me he things it's a problem with the PLL circuit.  A guy at one
of regular places on the East Coast who I called first to purchase another 
TS-870
said he thinks the same thing.  So don't know if the radios have an inherent PLL
problem or not, but it's the first time I've had trouble with one of mine.

The other reason of course if to have a spare for my SO2R station (and maybe
try SO3R RTTY again - last time was too hard to do and not as efficient as 
SO2R).

Although I have no intention of modifying my radios, I wonder if the mod you
describe will still allow the radio to be used in the FSK position?  I don't see
why not.

73, Don AA5AU

My favorite radio is still my old (1989 vintage) Kenwood TS-950SD.  And last
time I checked, it still holds a few world records.

Yes, the 1000D and MP's I've used have been fine.  Are they better than my
950?  Maybe, maybe not.

One thing I like about my 950, it has been FLAWLESS, never a problem in all
these dozen years.  Sometimes it just sits on Ascension Island, untouched
for a year or more, yet has never failed to fire-up or failed during a 48
hour contest. Amazing.

Other newer radios may have more bells and whistles, but not sure I would
use them all anyway.

NEW SUBJECT:  Does anyone still make voice keyers?  I'm anxiously awaiting
W9XT's latest for my notebook computer; but in the meantime urgently need
one for next month.  Help anyone?

The N1MM free logger works great.  Use your Heil Pro to record Windows .WAV 
files

and the function keys to play them back.  Record WAV's of each of the 
alph-numerics and it will even say the other guy's call.  Have used it 
in a couple of SS's and have said nary a word...

Message-ID: <00db01c258e2$f71cace0$02f446c0@snowfall.gcgo.nasa.gov>

Hello Jon

One thing nice about old radios like the TS-820 is they don't have
the mystery LSI chips and usually easy to fix. They also find mults
in a contest just fine, maybe even better.

Verify the HV is correct by the 820 panel meter. If one of the HV 
caps has failed it will indicate 400 VDC vice 800. Verify the screen
supply is okay and the 12BY7A cathode resistors R10/11 are still 
the same value. Verify a good ALC peak. 

If you are into troubleshooting RF circuits the IF unit will have 1v PP
of RF going into the TX mixer and 8 Vpp RF going to the driver. The
output of the driver to the 6146 grids is around 100 v pp. Another
place to verify transmitter operation is RF3 pin 6 on the RF unit. The
ALC voltage should be around 2 volts for 120 watts RF out. 

Good luck, the 820 is a fine radio and worth the trouble to fix. Kenwood 
sold a lot of them in the 70's. The 830 is even better, it forced people
like to me to give up our s-lines.

Hello Don,Bill, et al,
I like this radio very much. I made all proper mods : Intermodulation mod,
filters mod - two of 2.4 kc instead of two of 3kc, RX Ant mod, AGC (eproms)
mod, CW-monitor mod, NB range mod. Most of them are at
http://www.mods.dk . I always take care about correct input levels,
I mean, any strong signal should be no more than about 59+20db
and medium signals are about 57-58. I always use AIP ON for all bands and
additionally switch on the attenuator from 14mc and lower. You should never
switch ON menu #11 "S-meter correction for AIP". Also please take into
consideration that in CW and FSK mode analog filters of 2nd and 3rd IFs
shifted so their passbands overlap only by the desired amont - 500hz for
400hz-setting and so on depending on the setting [QST, february 1996,p.75].
I think it is great contest radio , but only for advanced users.

They have not changed the rules.

Kinda makes you wonder just how many operators turn on the amplifier even
though the rules say otherwise.

The 48th WAE-DX-Contest is scheduled for the upcoming weekend, September
14/15 for the phone portion. EU stations work DX and DX stations work
EU in this world-wide competition. Operation is restricted to the
five classic HF bands from 10 to 80 meters. Exchange RST and serial
number. If you want to get serious, check out the rules, which are
published on the WAEDC Web site at http://www.waedc.de. Be sure to read
the chapter about QTC traffic.

There are minor changes in the rules in respect to previous years:
new multipliers, a low power category and other small changes.
Expect some rare to semi-rare EU countries to show up in this
competition as well as a number of DX activities.

Last minute information is available on the WAEDC Web site
at http://www.waedc.de. Two days before the contest, an
up-to-date propagation forecast for the contest can be
found on the Web site.

Hello everybody !!
Vacation time, with 15 days at end of October.
My wife (PU2VYT) and me will spend
2/3 days in London, the same in Edimburg,
then Cardiff or other cities. We are still
thinking about - my wife need to spend
few hours at Liverpool (Beatles Fan).
Dublin is the city to finish our trip to 
the islands (10/11 days total).
Maybe between Oct-12 and Oct-24. We
need to come back for CQ WW hi hi hi...
And we know that will be necessary to visit
again because 12 days isn't enough !!!
After all, returning to Brasil, will spend a entire
day in Frankfurt, taking the plane at nigh to
coming back home. Like always, we know that
the best way to have a good time is receiving those
good  general information directly from people on
each country, and of course, nothing is
better than our Amateur Radio friends.
After years travelling and having good 
support from VE, W8, K2, CT, F, S5,
IK friends, we would like to repeat our
thanks to everybody.
If you have any sugestion, including restaurants,
hotel, places to visit, and even good and familiar
parties, please write to me, private: py2ny@arrl.net
We would like to escape a little from those ways
exclusively showed to tourists. Was incredible to
do this in other countries, meeting people of our
age  with same interests and knowing something
more about culture and life. Yes, we need and 
we want to visit the famous places, too !! And
of course, let's try to have some time together
and take a coffee...
Well, CQ-Contest had been  "the point" to begin
our travel projects last years. Thanks CQ-Contest
and thanks all the contesters and DX-ers here !!
Bye bye and hope to listen all of you on
Work All Europe DX Contest next weekend...

A simpler explanation may be that the contester selected the wrong power 
category when completing the web score reporting form.

On the other hand, some contesters are unfamiliar with the NAQP power 
limitations (it is one of the few non-QRP contests with no high power 
category). We occasionally receive high power or assisted NAQP log 
submissions -- they get used as check logs.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Feeding Antenna Arrays
Message-ID: <20020911.013025.-180187.0.kg4htt@juno.com>

I have a question about arrays - I read about phasing details, but I
haven't seen anything about current distribution.  Since an array depends
on equal current getting to all the antennas, how (if at all) do you
ensure that all antennas are receiving equal amounts of current?  After
all, if one antenna is 1.5:1 on a frequency, and the other antennas are
at 1.2:1 on the same frequency, it would appear that the current will
flow the most towards the antennas with the best match, and upset the
expected radiation patterns for the array.

I thought contesters may have the most experience with HF arrays...  Any
information  or pointers to sources of information on the topic of
correctly feeding arrays would be appreciated.... I'm hoping to have
something better set up for CQWW this fall....

73,
Vic KG4HTT

Message-ID: <062001c25a13$6ae4c050$ede3c23f@KR6X.ORG>

The tricks are:

1) Make the two antennas quite identical.
2) Choose the heights at which they are
mounted carefully so that the match is
identical on each.  Also, choose the heights
so that the lower is very close to half the
height of the upper.  For example, when
two ten meter yagis are stacked, 35 and 70
feet would meet both these criteria.  W6EEN
uses 3 10 meter yagis at 105, 70, and 35
feet, and can select almost any combination
of the 3.  A good simulation program like
NEC-2 is helpful in determining the best heights.
3) Use equal lengths of identical coaxial
cable between the antennas and the match
box.  Connect the two in parallel and match
for 26 ohms (2:1), or feed one at a time with
no match.

With the revised licensing arrangements in Australia we expect to see a lot
more international contesters arriving in Australia, especially in VK3.
Look at the official licensing and booking team:

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Low Audio from DVP - suggestions
Message-ID: <003d01c25ad0$ebd4e290$6401a8c0@Mark1>

Hello, All:

I just took a DVP I purchased used some time ago out of the box and
stuck it in an old Pentium.  The software functions work.  However, the
audio levels are extremely low, both for "transmit through" with a foot
switch and for playbacks from recording (either through the headphones
or through the radio). 

I used two different Heil headsets.  Both work when connected 
straight to the radios.  TR-Log and booting DOS on a Windows 95 
machine.   DVP files on the C drive...didn't get to setting up a RAM 
disk.  Kenwood radios.

I did not have a chance to swap the cable, though I'll try that 
after WAE with a YAESU cable I have lying around.  I can
check record/playback with that cable, but can't check the radio
connection.

I'm using one of their cables which I wired to work with the Heil
adapters and headsets...1/8" mono for microphone audio and 1/4" 
mono for PTT.

PTT works fine either from the foot switch or playbacks.

I did not try the test with the computer off...the manual says that should
bypass the board so it would probably work OK.  My next step is to
Ohm out the cable.

Any suggestions?  Of course, I chose WAE this weekend to try it for
the first time. :-)

Thanks in advance and 73.

Mark, KD4D

David,

Could you tell us what the hell you're talking about? If there is
any info on the WIA website that tells us about "revised licensing
arrangements" it's very well hidden.

XYL Ginny and I have enjoyed several very enjoyable visits
to VK including some externall territories. We both pay fifty
bucks a year to keep our licenses alive.

If something has been done to lessen the burden on visiting
hams, we'd like to learn about it. Please take a look at the
link you presented and give us visitors enough additional
info to learn what you want us to learn.

Thanks for the stimulus,

Bill K6KM, VK4AWS, VK9LOO, VK9NOO,

David,

Yes, that is so true, and anything that can be done to
encourage VK contesters is worthwhile.

YET I am still at sea about new licensing and examination
teams. I've walked into the ACA offices in Cairns and
Brisbane with my US ticket and a wad of money and
received VK licenses within minutes. Ginny has done the
same. Friends have carried our papers and money into
other ACA offices and bought licenses without our
presence.

Has something changed? Please tell us how contesting
in Oz is being encouraged, and how we foreigners mightr
be enticed to participate in contests fom that
wonderful place. There's a seed of really good stuff
in your msg but the fruit remains obscure.

state QSO parties from other states, WAE, SAC  or  All Asia from North
America  or the ARRL DX contests from outside the US and Canada?  Which
ones do you like the best and why? What strategies do you use? What are
your band plans?  What percentage of the time do you expect at least one
band to be open to the target area?

Thanks again for your support!

73 - Gary

Just in case others missed the "incintive" to get a ticket in VK3 land.
Check out the beautiful YL that is in charge of testing. You have to 
be dead not to want to have her giving you the "test". HI. I dont
think much else of an informative nature was meant to be found on
this web site. Just 2 beautiful Aussie girls involve in the WIA.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Need NCJ "Contesting on a Budget" Inputs -- Fun Topic!
Message-ID: <17f.e517aa4.2ab34c46@aol.com>

Thanks to all for your insightful and poignant inputs for this column.  We 
have an interesting and fun topic for this issue and I look forward to your 
responses.

The topic is "The Nickel Fix That Saved Your Bacon".  I will explain the 
origin of the "nickel fix" at the beginning of the article, but I am 
basically looking for inexpensive and innovative ways that you solved 
last-minute problems and went on to successfully complete a contest.

The "cheap fixes' may include that clamp-on RF choke that kept RF out of the 
computer, the bypass capacitor you added to your rotor box to keep the 
indicator needle from swinging with your RF voice peaks, that post-it note 
that reminded you to watch the grid current on the amp, or even that set of 
labels that you attached to your wiring behind the radios that helped you 
sort out problems when Murphy struck.

A second, and equally interesting aspect of cheap and simple fixes includes 
innovative "work-arounds" to solve last-minute problems.  I've heard "urban 
legend" stories of using a two hole amp with just one tube (at reduced power, 
of course), making emergency tube substitutions in amps, using a VOM as a 
rotor indicator, using a rope and pulley arrangement to replace a defective 
rotor, etc.  Give us your "war stories" of economical and innovative 
work-arounds, we'll withhold names to protect the innocent if requested.

Again, an enormous "thanks in advance" for the inputs you provide that will 
entertain and inform the contest community.  I look forward to hearing from 
you.

Paul, K5AF

Message-ID: <002801c25b32$5b73bfc0$690346a6@davef>

Towertalkers ... & ... Contest Ops ....

I just left the power company office here in town ... disussing plans to
install about
70 feet of R45 .... ground systems, MGN connections, etc ... inside my small
lot
.....and in the process the following came up:

Hydraulic-installed anchors ... they have a hydraulic system that hammers 7
or
10 foot long 0.75 inch diameter anchors into the earth with a big plate at
the end
... when they reach the desired depth then they set them for the desired
load
by pulling against the earth to the value desired ... maximum value is like
18000
lbs ... like a molly-bolt/screw thing you put in the wall, the plate at the
bottom opens
out and poof, you have a super anchor ... The name of the system they use is
MANTRA (???) ... and they said they would be willing to do the job for me !!

WOW & Double WOW ... when I consider I would have to put in four 3x5x2
rebarred
concrete anchors down six feet plus buy the anchors ...  Putting screw-in
anchors
into this small cobble around here is just short of impossible !!!!!!

Power company Anchor cost is like $85+ install ...will be given quote soon
...

Is this too good to be true ???   Does anyone know about this or has used
these anchors?
These are the anchors the city uses to dead end transmission and
distribution poles ... which
can have requirements at least as much (probably MORE) than my tower would
ever need ...

Your comments/experience requested ...

If this comes true I will get the info and put it on the reflector ...
unless it is already here somewhere.

Dave:

Those are Manta Ray anchors by Forsight Products, LLC.

See http://www.earthanchor.com/mantamain.html for 
details. They are out of Colorado.

I have looked at these for tie back anchors for sheet 
pile retaing walls among other uses. I usually have the 
good fortune to have a soils report from an geotechnical 
engineering consultant when I look at these things, but 
since the utility company has experience in your area I 
would not hesitate to use them if they are applicable.

Hope they work out for you.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Suprising News - ITU Zones not defined worldwide !!
Message-ID: <000601c25b47$db290760$b7a5cad5@host>

An interesting piece of information has just turned up....

Background: I was working on an overlay map for North America, and
discovered a number of discrepancies amongst available reference sources and
existing maps as to where exactly some of the ITU/IARU zone boundaries were.
So, I thought the best idea would be to go to the very top. I therefore sent
an email requesting the definitive ITU zone definitions to the IARU
president, Larry E. Price, W4RA LPrice@iaru.org

To quote from his reply :
> Tim - you have to keep in mind that the ITU has one administrative purpose
> for having zones that has nothing at all to do with amateur radio.
> However, various amateur radio organisations decided to have both awards
> and operating events on the air based on the idea of zones.
> But, since this is not why the zones exist as far as ITU is concerned, the
> sponsors of these amateur events are free to interpret the zone boundaries
> any way they wish. So, there might not be a single "official amateur radio
> zone list."
> For the US & Canada, the interpretation by ARRL is found in The ARRL
> Operating Manual, desk top reference, page 12 which defines the
> boundaries between US States and Canadian provinces.
> If you have more questions about any particular contest or award, they
> should be directed to the sponsor.
> 73
> Larry, W4RA

I thus went for a bit of a search on the Internet once more, and found some
definitions from the ARRL, the RSGB, and the IARU:

http://www.arrl.org/contests/vev0vy.html
06          W-K-N-A   U.S.A. (Washington, Oregon,
                     California, Nevada, Idaho,
                      & that part of Montana,
                      Utah & Arizona west of
                      110 Deg. W.)

http://www.g3wkl.freeserve.co.uk/awards/wituz.html
6. W6, W7 (excluding Wyoming & Montana east of 110W)

http://www.iaru.org/ituzonesc.gif
This map provided on the IARU's homepage, and copied frequently on many home
pages, shows a third definition !

This is just one example of discrepancies, noted straight away. There may be
others. On a flippant note, I could say that if you lived in parts of
Montana it's now officially possible to be in two places at once ! On a more
serious note, it seems to me suprising that all IARU member societies can't
come to a common zone definition.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] SO2R antenna distance
Message-ID: <3D835097.6010603@tcinternet.net>

Doing some basic planning. How far away would those of you operating 
SO2R consider the minimum distance between the main antenna (Force 12 C4 
at 60 feet) to a vertical? Are there any good resources on the web for 
this part of a SO2R? All the hits on google referred to software and 
inside the shack issues. I think I want to figure out if the antennas 
can be placed appropriately before I look at the inside issues. Thanks 
in advance Dave K?XH

For reference:

I have a vertically polarized 44 foot dipole I use on 10/20, and a 130 foot 
horizontal dipole 130 feet away for 40/15. I made a quickie 50 ohm 
termination for the "other" coax and rigged a diode detector and a meter so 
I could roughly measure RF. Then I applied full power on one antenna, each 
band, and measured voltage. It varied, but was up to a couple volts in the 
worst case. A 10+20 rejection stub on the 40/15 antenna, and a 40/15 
rejection stub on the other brought the worst case to less than a quarter 
volt, as I recall.  I see no crosstalk unless I tune directly to a harmonic.

No 80 meter contesting here.

I have no filters (yet)

Depends on power level and how you supress the other signal (stubs, 
bandpass filters or both. I have both). My 402CD is 9 ft from my high 
TH7 and no problems barefoot, and can get within 10-15 Khz of the 2nd 
harmonic on 20 (eg., 7005/14010). When on 20-10m, I have a TH7 at 
40 ft (lower part of stack) and one at 25 ft on same tower. No problems 
at all, except when on the second harmonic (eg., 14005/28010).

However...
You may want to rethink the vertical. I tried that, first, using a Hygain 
DX77 multiband vertical. A dummy load would have been just as good! I 
compared the vertical with a TH7 at 25 ft, and the TH7 was 5-6 S units 
better than the vertical. One potential problem you may have - I 
modeled the entire system, with different tribanders, before deciding 
what to do (I didn't want to install a second tower). I recall that I 
modeled C31XR's and the interactions between antennas were awful. 
With TH7s they were minimal. That's why I went with TH7s. As you 
already have a C4, you may want to consider another C4 at 30 ft for the 
second radio, but model it first to check for interactions.

Francesco,

I sure hope for your sake that your future XYL doesn't have an objection...

My first honeymoon (early 1980's) was in St. Thomas USVI.  Had snuck the HT
along, never ended up using it.  Biggest clue was when doing some
sightseeing the first evening, I spotted the tower of the late KV4AA, and
when I openly expressed some curiousity about it, I got a dirty look and a
later lecture on how she didn't want to spend her honeymoon around radios...
which is one of the many reasons it didn't work out, but that's another
story...

My second honeymoon (1992) was in Puerto Rico.  Also brought the HT along,
even had made arrangements to meet up with a few local hams, but chickened
out -- the previous experience had an effect.  So wouldn't you know it, at
the end of the week, we're getting on the shuttle bus from the rental car
place when I spot the driver's 2M HT (I'd say who if I could remember the
call).  We had a nice, short chat on the way to the terminal!On the plane
home, I found out that if I HAD broken the HT out, she not only wouldn't
have minded, but would have enjoyed a visit!  Live & learn...

So, I sure hope your fiance likes amateur radio!

73, ron wn3vaw

When asked "If you had been in President Clinton's place, would you have
resigned?",
Republican Member of the House of Representatives Dick Armey replied:

"If I were in the President's place, I would not have gotten a chance to
resign.  I would be laying in a pool of my own blood, hearing Mrs. Armey
standing over me saying, "How do I reload this damn thing?"

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Sprint Mults down
Message-ID: <171.13ccf61c.2ab72da9@aol.com>

As I keep reading all the comments in the Sprint scores on 3830, I notice a 
common thread about lack of mults, where were all the mults, low activity.  
Funny that after K9PG gets slammed for e-mailing folks (and now has stopped) 
to get them on the air, get mults active, help bring new blood in the 
contests we see a drop in such.. It's a doubled edged sword isn't it!  Maybe, 
just maybe what he was doing.... 
WAS helping everyone.  Think about it.

Message-ID: <4.1.20020916144947.00a61ee0@pop.gmx.de>

Hi everybody,

Just saw the CQWW CW 2001 results and am happy to 
take home a new EU record in the LP class...

I admit the story comes a bit late but maybe you would like to 
read it as a teaser for the upcoming CQWW contests this year. :-)

Feel free to read the whole story behind the CS7T operation on
my website: www.qsl.net/df4sa ... Enjoy!

73s & CU in the contests this year!
Con DF4SA / CS7T

I have no problem with what PG was doing to boost activity! I noted that 40m 
was not nearly as productive at the start as it had been in previous years. 
Starting on 40m was a 'trademark' of his get on the air requests. I went to 
20m after less than 10 minutes.

Message-ID: <004501c25da6$e27ea4a0$eca5cad5@host>

Had a hunt around the net, looking for a good map of Russian prefixes and
call sign areas. Couldn't find one. Decided to make my own - its now at my
site. Help yourself. Look in the Map section. Click on the map and it will
open into a new browser. Let me know if its useful.

 Activity was not down on SSB but on CW as well. Plus the activity has
always been better on CW anyway. I suspect alot of those guys Paul
recruited were "newbees" and after doing a Sprint for the first time
they decided they really didn't like it.

 I have been doing the Sprint for over 20 years and I can tell you that
people fit into 2 categories - They love it (all the regular guys we
work in every Sprint) OR they hate it with a passion. 

 Call me crazy but I LOVE the Sprints... they are by far my favorite
contests. I wish there were more than 2 per year.

This is the Collegiate Amateur Radio Association webpage.

This is the first year of the contest, but the main goal is to get the
college stations on the air and active....  As of now I do not know of
any awards yet, since the rules aren't clear on it...  But it IS an
operating activity! :)
