Overall, yes, but in the beginning of SS, one mult is worth far more
than one QSO. Therefore, if one has only limited operating time, it's
better to get lots of mults and some QSOs rather than few mults and many
QSOs.

Alright Jim, prove me wrong. If you make it into the top 10 for any
category in SS CW this weekend, I'll agree with your statement that
sweeps are not necessary to win. After all, you have a good station and
you are a good operator, so if making the top ten does not mandate a
sweep, you should be able to prove it.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] REMINDER - 2002 OCEANIA DX CONTEST
Message-ID: <01d601c27be4$ea414060$1d2c58db@master>

Hi All

A reminder that the 2002 Oceania DX contest is happening over the first two 
weekends of October.
This will be the 66th Oceania DX Contest - lets make it the biggest and best 
yet!.

PHONE Contest: 0800 UTC Saturday 5 October to 0800 UTC Sunday 6 October
CW Contest: 0800 UTC Saturday 12 October to 0800 UTC Sunday 13 October

The rules are similar to last year except that Single-Op Single Band logs are 
required to record ALL
contacts made by the station, both on the band chosen for the entry and on any 
other bands.
Furthermore, we are looking for as many logs as possible to be emailed in 
electronic Cabrillo
format - to help the Committee process the logs and get the results out more 
quickly.

There are 7 new plaques/trophies available to the winners in various entry 
categories. We will
also award certificates to the 3 top scoring stations in the Non-Oceania Single 
Operator All
Band category.

The full rules are available from 
http://www.nzart.org.nz/nzart/update/contests/Oceania or,
alternatively, forward a request to octest@nzart.org.nz for a copy of the rules 
to be sent to your
email address.

The contest is supported by most of the popular contest logging packages 
including CT, Writelog, TR
Log, and SD Logger. See 
http://www.nzart.org.nz/nzart/Update/Contests/Oceania/software.htm for more
information about the compatibility of the various software packages.

We are working hard to promote a good turn out from Oceania stations. You can 
expect to find some of
the rarer Oceania prefixes - e.g.,
VK8DA, Darwin Amateur Radio Club, PH and CW
V63SC, Micronesia, Op JM1LBO, PH, 15m and 10m
3D2/W7DRA, Fiji, PH and CW

Remember that, as well as being a great opportunity to work Oceania stations, 
this contest is also a
good time to check out your station and start "warming up" for the CQ WW 
contests!

We look forward to seeing you in the 2002 contest. Please direct any inquiries 
to
octest@nzart.org.nzart

And  d) Give non-W/VE entrants who submit an electronic log a password to 
allow access to all the web site info for that particular contest.  Send it 
with their log receipt confirmation message.

Those who don't send an electronic log probably don't have easy access to the 
internet anyway.

OK, I will ask the obvious question. What does WAE/RADXC do different. From 
out here in the middle of nowhere the European contests are often difficult 
to work from behind the east coast stations so my experience with them is 
very limited. How do they distribute the results? Publishing them in the 
organization's magazine is the obvious choice. That is the least expensive 
way for them to do it. But you seem to be saying that it is done 
differently over there. Before I can form an opinion I need more information.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Oceania Prefix - query
Message-ID: <OF4E39B3D1.678E9795-ONCA256C45.001AB472@aap.pwcinternal.com>

Reading the Oceania DX Contest multiplier rules, I'm considering signing as
a portable prefix " VI2".  This is a valid ham prefix here in VK and our
ACA have the VI prefix  currently on issue to 3 ham stations in VK with
expiry dates after the Oceania contest.  I checked the AX ham license
prefixes on issue in VK as at today, and none came up....

The reason I'm asking is that I recall Jim VK9NS fell foul of something
like this a few years back.  Figured I'd pop the question and arm myself
with re-prints of the current VI licenses and fend off any detractors up
front.

I'm keen to get another Oceania prefix alive.

Hi Hrle,

>>I'm 19 and I know how young people talk about hamradio. 

A few years ago I said a similar thing on this reflector.
Tree, N6TR mentioned 
"it might have a lot to do with how it is presented to them"

which is a very true sentence. So it is a challenge to guys like us
to make some of our younger friends understand where the fun is 
instead of feeling bad and just letting them talk BS about something 
they dont actually know much of.

That requires a bit more of a positive attitude.
Which is missing in this whole discussion, anyway.

>>Things has to be changed and not stay like
>>they've always been, because times are changing.

Yes but you will never change anything in this world by just bitching.
You will only change it by thinking up something better.

You stated some very true and valid points in your emails.
See, you already changed N0FP's mind.

Now if you had to choose between writing the following 2 letters to CQ 
to explain what the problems are, in your point of view. 
In one letter you abuse them etc. 
In the other letter you find a nice and polite way to explain all your 
points. 
Which one do you think they are going to throw away unnoticed?

Well I guess it will still be quite difficult to change their mind but
I think you get my point.?

>> I'm 19, and when all those older guys past away I wonder who 
>> will I talk to?

Comon, dont be so negative.
I guess it is up to us to make this hobby stay around a bit longer.
It probably still has a chance. Like sailing has a chance in todays
motorized world, too.

BTW, I am now 30 years old. Damned, its going faster than you think :-)

73s and CU on the air! (which is where the real fun is, not in the stupid
results book... ;-))

Subject: [CQ-Contest] ARRL Discrimination
Message-ID: <009501c26922$c8fe2aa0$d29c0ec3@shack1>

 Jim, K1IR makes a very persuasive argument in my view.  I am a non US
contester but I am also a fully paid up member of the ARRL and intend to
remain so. I would gain nothing myself from an earlier release of contest
results to non members. Though.......

"I'd like you to come play my game, but by the way, I'm not going to tell
you how you did until a month after everyone else, unless you pay me some
money", is a position which has a rather ugly feel to it.

There is no denying the ARRL has to operate viably as a business and has
therefore to maintain focus on securing its revenues, but this is not a good
way to aim to do it.  Someone's thinking is badly off track here.

There are many members of the contesting community around the world and many
more who may be attracted to contesting who simply don't have the luxury of
being able to afford to pay for ARRL membership.  For the ARRL to take steps
to further disadvantage these folks is IMHO unnecessary and wholly
undesirable.

For my money as a member of ARRL I would like to see staging of results
release abandoned forthwith and all efforts applied to finding ways to
further speed up results publication.  We all hate the long wait for results
to appear.

Thanx to all who emailed me direct and on the list as well about my question 
about headset mic vs. boom mic.   Almost without exception it was suggested 
that I go with the headset.  Lots of good advice and the benefits/drawback 
of each.  This list is a good resource for the contest community.   Will be

Ok, here is my take on the situation. My guess is
that members (who pay somewhere around 40 
bucks a year now I think) get a month's advance
peek at the scores.

Personally, I wouldn't mind if they let everyone look
at the same time. No biggy to me. But, if the stations
that are non-members get to look at the scores one
month later, what is so bad about that? Maybe as
an ARRL member, that is one of our "perks" for our
membership dues?

I just don't see the big deal about having to wait a
month to see the scores. This is sure a lot faster
then when we all had to wait for months to get our
QST to see the scores.

Barry's Role Model perception is skewed by his youth.

In the 50's and 60's,CQWW mailed a book to contest entrants with all scores
and winners.  WAE was ok too!
Now they are the best, along with the Russia Contest.
It's all changing quickly.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Operating Chair Idea
Message-ID: <001101c2696e$23b552c0$3ea0cad5@host>

I needed a different operating chair - the old typist's chair I used wasn't
really comfortable for long periods. No spare money to buy a new one... Then
an idea occurred - car seats can be very comfortable, and I had a few spare
in a couple of old cars on the property. So I removed one of the seats,
found its centre of gravity by balancing the seat over a thin piece of 2"x1"
wood strip whilst sitting on it, then welded a couple of 9"x2"x1/4" strips
to the base. These were bolted to the old typist chair's swivel base, and
hey presto, a brand new operating chair, very comfortable, and still with
it's reclining back and headrest.

If you are going to try this, there's one area that can be critical - the
angle of the seat to the ground. If you look at the base of the seat on most
chairs, i.e. the actual surface you sit on, it is generally parallel to the
floor. However some car seats are not parallel, but tilt up at the front.
You will need to correct this otherwise the front of the base will push up
on the back of your thighs, which isn't comfortable over long periods.

Typist's chair bases are very handy, for their wheels and swivel facilities,
but if you don't mind a fixed chair, then a simple set of legs for your old
car seat could be made out of a variety of materials, such as wood, rebar,
tube, or box-section. If you've got a tidier yard than mine, and don't have
old cars gently rusting back to nature, your local car-dismantler will
probably be able to provide a variety of seats for small amounts of money.

If you do have money to spare, the most incredible operating chair is 
the Herman MIller Aeron. It's also dispalted as artwork in the MOMA. 
See http://www.hermanmiller.com/CDA/product/0,1469,c201-pss1-
p8,00.html

They are frequently available used on Ebay, as a lot of liquidated 
dotcom companies bought them for their employees.

I've never had a sore butt or numb leg after a weekend of contesting 
using an Aeron. In the past, I've switched back and forth between 3 or 4 
charis thourghout the weekend, and even stood for a while.

Hello Hrle ,
Some of your statements are really correct, but you extremely
exaggerated the situation in the Ukraine. :-)
Your conception is really overdone. I guess it is in fact not
far away from croatian. :-)
Most of our active contesters do have the Internet, clasters, etc.
Most of us use good equipment, good antennas, stacks, etc.
May be some stations are in poor conditions, but please do not
extend it on all of our contesters and lay it on thick.
CU in the contests.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
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.

You know Vlad, you are right. In East Europe MOST of the active contesters
run good stations, having internet, and probably save some additional money
for the DXpeditions.
Why do we have to worry about those little tiny signals?! They're probably
just misserable loosers that havent achieved anything in their lifes.
Who cares about them!
CQ Magazine is money making magazine, why do we expect them to sponsor the
CQWW contest? After all it's just one of the lines written in the invitation
(rules). Anybody even read the rules? Nah...

Subject: [CQ-Contest] CQ WW SSB CONTEST - OP NEEDED
Message-ID: <3D9A76C1.91303DA8@dayton.net>

We have lost one of the ops planning to travel to Costa Rica for the
TI5N entry as a multi-multi station in the CQ WW SSB contest.  This was
due to business meetings scheduled for Sunday of the contest and Monday
that could nt be rescheduled.

We would like to replace this op.  Hopefully we can find someone with
some good contest experience and capable of running pile ups.
Consideration will be given to one with low experience but may have
mostly all assignments in slow periods.  An op could demonstrate ability
by ops before the contest.

Money matters - for a six night stay the cost is $500 which covers bed,
meals, some beverages, airport transfer and equipment use.  Plan approx.
$25 exit fee and  and funds for touring, gifts,  etc.  Group cost will
be in the $30 range.  The $500 is adjusted $75 for each day more or -$75
for a each day less.

The main body of ops will arrive on Wed. Oct. 23 and depart on Tue. Oct.
29.

Airfare - I only have information from Dayton and as of Sunday, a good
fare was in the $530 range.  Most major airlines have non stop flights
from some hubs.

The stations will include 756Pro's, 940's and a mix of several other
models.  As planned each band will have its own amp and most will have a
selection of antenna.  Logging will be with WriteLog.

For more information on the station and host, try:

http://www.qsl.net/ti5kd/contest.htm

For more info on Costa Rica just try a search with Costa Rica and you
should get a number of travel and related pages.

For anyone who would like to discuss this further, please call me at
937-434-9616.

Hi Chris,
Welcome to the lower 48 :.) There was an article in NCJ several 
years ago that discussed what you want. I don't have the reference 
handy. Maybe someone else can quote the issue? I do have info 
on a switch that makes it easy: Contact C & K switch

First, let me state that I don't have as great a
station as many do, but I have one that works for
me. I either operate as part of the M/M world or
I do it as a SO.

I agree with Vladimir! The key, here, is rather
than make distinctions about the level of
resources a station may or may not have available
one should emphasize that it is what you DO with
what you have that matters.

The 'little gun' or 'popgun' station of limited
resources works at pefecting skills and abilities
to achieve some kind of goal for themselves. 

To call someone who has limited resources (as
Hrvoje puts it "...those little tiny signals 
...hey're probably just misserable losers that
havent achieved anything in their lifes. Who
cares about them!') those kinds of perjorative
terms only serves to further divide our group.

Trust me.. and you can verify this with ANY
contest op who is seriusly looking for a good
score..  

ANY station who is competitive in a contest
SEEKS, WANTS, and DESIRES as many of those 'tiny
signals' as they can get. As we say. 'Q's Is
Points!' It doesn't matter what class of station
you may have.. trust me. If I'm operating in a
contest, I want every Q I can get. Loud, weak,
whatever. No station who is active in the contest
shares the view that a 'tiny signal' is worthless
or indicative of an operator/owner that is a
'loser'. Just the opposite! 

Many times I've struggled for minutes to pull a
'tiny signal' out of the noise becuase I WANTED
to make the Q. Regardless of whetheror not it was
a mult.. 'Q's Is Points!'  

For all you know,that 'tiny signal' may be a
skilled QRP enthusiast of great resources trying
out a milliwatt transmitter into a dipole to see
how it works.  Blanket, perjorative statements
add nothing to the debate.

One thing to remember is this.. there are MORE
multi-multi stations looking for ops than you may
know about. I can't speak for European folks, but
I know here in the States EVERY M/M wants to have
new blood coming in to train and have for thier
station. I would have to bet that the European
guys and other Countries are the same way. The
geographical limitations and reduced station
numberes may necessitate differnt methods of
contact, training, and assilimation of folks, but
there is NEVER a shortage of need for ops.

Quite a few active constesters do not use
Internet, clusters, or other assistances. They
like being unassisted in their efforts. They may
submit thier logs via the Internet or by mail,
but they don't use it themselves.

Rather than case perjorative words which tend to
divide our community of contest aficiandos.. why
not attempt to encourage them to operate and
plant a few seeds?

Just one ham's opinion. Feel free to fire back.

BTW what the hell is the purpose of this thread anyway?
What does it add to contesting?  Why don't you folks
who prefer to bash people/organizations/things start a
reflector and have at it.  But in the meantime please cut
the crap if you don't have something to add to the hobby.
Yeah, I have a delete key but frankly my finger is sore from pushing it so
much when I read emails on this reflector.  I believe there is some protocol
for the type
of messages that are permitted isn't there?
And, yes again, I will unsubscribe very soon if the nonsense continues - as
will - I'm sure many others.

In WEB Scores, RW2F is multi/single, not multi/multi or UNLIMITED??

Best I can tell, Oceania stations need prefixes as mults.

I've poked about lots of Oceania sites and still am not

If you need prefixes, I'll be in your contest signing

Message-ID: <01c301c26c00$525b2520$03010a0a@office1>

Warm up this weekend with the Ca QSO Party -- and then come out next week
for the 45th Annual Pennsylvania QSO Party, sponsored by the Nittany Amateur
Radio Club, will take place October 12th & 13th.  Look for activity from all
67 PA counties; from an assortment of portables, mobile & rover stations;
from special event stations; and from stations sitting on county lines.

While much of the activity will be on 80 and 40 meters, you will find
stations to work on all bands, and all are welcome!  For the in-state
participants, the multipliers are the total number of counties AND the
ARRL/RAC Sections (including 1 for DX), so all stations everywhere are
eagerly sought.

One of the unique things of this contest is the Special Event Bonus
station -- a different one every year, this station not only highlights the
sponsoring club or organization, but is worth 200 points per QSO.  This
year's Special Event Station is W3FRC (operating from the K3ANS
superstation), highlighting the 75th Anniversary of the Frankford Radio
Club.  The FRC is offering their own set of awards during their anniversary
year, so if you're looking for FRC members to work for these, the Pa QSO
Party gives you a perfect opportunity to do so!

Complete rules and entry forms can be found at
http://www.nittany-arc.org/parules.html

For those who want to read further, some of the highlights:

----------------
OPERATING PERIODS - 1600Z October 12 to 0500Z October 13 and 1300Z October

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 will probably be operating my home station.  But look for my
club's two club stations, N3SH/3 Clarion/Forest County Line, or WA3SH/3
Westmoreland/Somerset County Line; and for club member N3ZNI (with KB3GOT) &
former member N3WAV running around mobile throughout the 33 counties of
Western PA.

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 one last one right before the contest.

Yes, mate, mulipliers are indeed different prefixes for both OC and 
non-OC stations.
And you count the same prefix on two different bands as two multipliers, 
unlike WPX contest.

==>ARRL SURVEYING MEMBERSHIP ON FUTURE CONTINUING EDUCATION COURSE
PREFERENCES

The ARRL is surveying its membership regarding which future on-line ARRL
Certification and Continuing Education (C-CE) courses hams would be most
likely to take. The list of possibilities ranges from antennas to VHF 
and UHF operation. The Web-based survey 
<http://www.arrl.org/members-only/cce/ccesurv.html> is now open for 
input. The survey period will end October 27.

"The C-CE program has been very successful," said C-CE Program 
Coordinator Howard Robins, W1HSR, who notes that thousands of hams have 
registered for ARRL's on-line classes since the C-CE program began in 
late 2000. The C-CE program's first offering--selected as a result of 
membership input--was the Level I Amateur Radio Emergency Communications 
course (EC-001). The League now offers three levels in emergency 
communications and expanded course offerings to include Antenna 
Modeling, HF Digital Communication and Satellite Communication.

"Our plans are to make several additional courses available in 2003,"
Robins said. "The survey results will guide the C-CE program in 
providing courses of demonstrated interest to ARRL members."

Members will be asked to rank the various possibilities in terms of the
likelihood that they would take the course if it were offered. The list
includes Antennas 101, Basic Electronics, Trouble Shooting, Test
Equipment, Radio Propagation, VHF and UHF Beyond the Repeater and
Contesting 101.

To learn more, visit the ARRL Certification and Continuing Education Web
page <http://www.arrl.org/cce> and the C-CE Links found there. For more
information, contact Certification and Continuing Education Program
Coordinator Howard Robins, W1HSR, hrobins@arrl.org.

It seems as though SCLA and SCRU are the exact same series of dits and dahs.  
I worked on station who was sending them interchangably, depending on his 
timing!

Tricky...

Subject: [CQ-Contest] CQP Mixups, VY1JA Style
Message-ID: <001401c26db5$d1944ae0$37096cd8@jallen>

I would like to apologize for the dupes during CQP to the many that I hit
twice.

My Omni-V does not talk to the software, and I had trouble remembering to
switch the band and mode in the software so not only were there dupes, but
some of my logging will be in error.

Don't worry, I am sure that you will get credit for your QSOs...

I have sent a note in with the CQP log, asking the checkers to assign errors
of band and mode to my log, treating your logs as correct.  I know of only
one QSO that disappeared from my log (a 20 meter QSO with KA6BIM), and
another QSO that wanted to be the same number as the one that preceded it
for some unknown reason.

The cause of all of this is being addressed.... The microcontroller in my
Omni-V is being updated to Version V.9 and will be able in the future to
communicate with the software.  I am only one component short, a hex
inverter, 7417 chip.  My local Radio Shack does not carry them.  Does anyone
know of a supplier with no minimum order fee for a single chip... I hate to
pay $20 for one IC.

Thanks for your patience with me during CQP.

Conditions to/from YT were the PITS!   I think that the combined QSO counts
of VY1JA and VY1MB was something less than 350 QSOs.  The challenge of
propagation makes it interesting.  I love contesting anyway!

Subject: [CQ-Contest] top ten
Message-ID: <012a01c26e22$f16a1580$0100007f@adams.net>

Top Ten reasons to work the ILLINOIS QSO PARTY on October 20:

10) Warm up for Sweepstakes.  Sunday evening rate the way SS would *like* to
be!

9) Only eight hours.  Doesn't alienate family.

8) Starts at 1800Z.  Lets you go to church first.  Pray for "sweep".  See
number 6.

7) You worked CQP and didn't get a "sweep".  Frustrated.

6) You worked CQP and *did* get a "sweep".  Prove you can do twice as well
(102 counties in IL).

5) Reward the 12-15 mobiles that will be crossing the state.

4) Ferret out a county-line portable sitting in a corn field (explaining to
sheriff why he's there....)

3) Shock a first-time in-state IQPer with his very own pileup.

2) Qualify for a certificate or a "Taste of Illinois" award (we produce
honey here, not salmon....)

1) Sunday afternoon/evening contest stimulates brain --- jumpstart for
Monday morning.

NEWINGTON, CT -- October 7, 2002 

With a higher proportion of VHF-only licensees than ever before, one might 
expect that VHF/UHF contesting would be experiencing a surge in popularity. To 
the contrary, while the total QSOs being made in the multi-band contests seems 
steady, the number of logs - and thus the number of serious participants - has 
fallen off considerably since 1996. This has led the ARRL to ask you for your 
thoughts on why this might be happening and how to best address and reverse the 
trend. We'd also like to hear from you about the ARRL VHF/UHF awards program in 
general. 


The survey is the result of a request from the ARRL Board to look into ways to 
increase participation. It is being sent to a random sample of regular 
top-scorers and average participants, regardless of their score, plus clubs 
that regularly participate in VHF/UHF club competitions. Our interest is in 
gathering information we can use to improve the participation and quality of 
both the various ARRL VHF/UHF contests and the ARRL VHF/UHF awards programs. 
The detail and quality of information in your answers is especially important 
to us. 


The Survey - 

The survey is organized into several areas of inquiry. The first group deals 
exclusively with contesting: 

Existing contests - how can their formats, rules, or reporting be improved such 
that activity and log submissions are increased? This survey refers to the 
following ARRL sponsored contests: January VHF Sweepstakes, June & September 
VHF QSO Parties, August UHF Contest, 10 GHz and Up competition, and the Oct/Nov 
EME Contest 

New contest formats - are there new formats that would be attractive to the 
existing contest community? 

New participants - what improvements or additions to VHF/UHF contesting would 
attract more operators to the sport? How can these operators be reached? 


A second area of interest is the ARRL VHF/UHF awards program and increasing the 
level of interest and participation. The existing awards such as VUCC, WAS, and 
DXCC, are derivatives of the HF awards program. There is some concern that 
these awards either have too high an initial qualification level or may be 
missing some interests of VHF/UHF operators. There are two groups of questions: 

Existing awards - how can their rules or categories might be improved so that 
more activity is encouraged? 

New awards - are there new award programs that would be attractive to VHF/UHF 
operators? 
Responding 


Each topic has a series of questions related to either VHF/UHF contesting or 
awards. Please select the answer that best matches your position or situation. 
Please feel free to extend your remarks (use additional pages if necessary). 
Your detailed comments are very important. 

The survey is downloadable as an Adobe Acrobat file on the web at 
http://www.arrl.org/contests/announcements/vhf-survey.pdf 

It should be completed and returned by regular mail to: VHF/UHF Survey, attn: 
Wayne Mills, N7NG, ARRL, 225 Main St, Newington CT 06111. We would like to have 
the returned surveys by October 31st. You may copy the blank survey and 
distribute it to other amateurs, particularly to operators that may not be 
active in VHF/UHF contesting now. A summary of the results will be available in 
the future. 

Thanks and 73

Subject: [CQ-Contest] W6UFT in CQP02 (long de W1HIJ)
Message-ID: <f6.22b30d5a.2ad34665@aol.com>

Hi all,

Thought I'd share some of the experience in the weekend's contest. This is 
the first time I've done CQP seriously since 99 and since we're on "firsts" I 
thought I'd go all the way. So, the radio was a new one (Yaesu FT897); I was 
using a new version of TRLog; this was the first time I'd ever done a 
signifcant effort with QRP; and it was the first major effort from the new 
QTH in Upland with the first contest using the Butternut HF6V which is 
installed on the roof.

So here's the station setup:

Yaesu FT897 running at 5W powered by an Astron supply. Antenna is a Butternut 
HF6V mounted on the roof with its base about 28 feet above ground. One radial 
each for 40, 30, 20, and 10, with a single "radial" made of 3 inch wide 
copper foil, 50 feet long that stands in for 80 meters. The computer is a 100 
MHz Dell laptop interfaced to the radio for both radio control and for 
keying. Software is version 6.70 (latest) of TRLog. There's a second computer 
that usually is connected to the internet for real time propagation numbers 
(flux updated every minute), but I don't bother with packet since I find it 
more of a distraction than anything else.

I got my hands on the new radio on Wednesday before the contest and spent 
that evening and Thursday evening figuring out its quirks and setting up the 
menu options (there are 91 of them!) to suit my style. I also got the latest 
version of TRLog (v6.70) on Thursday, so I spent a bit of time that evening 
checking out any new options, programming the CW memories and figuring out 
the interface between the computer and the radio. (Since the 897 is so new, 
Tree hasn't seen one yet, but the interface is the same as the FT817, more or 
less).

Saturday AM I had to take Emily (KF6SGV) to the airport for a trip to the 
east coast and I was back home about 0800, rarin' to go. The solar numbers 
were "OK", but with the flux between 150 and 160, a planetary A that was at 
40 (with a K of 4) until 21Z on Saturday, dropping to 21 for the rest of the 
weekend, and a K that varied between 2 and 3, I knew it was gg to be a bit of 
a struggle.

Conversations on the QRP issue with a few people in the week before the 
contest had me convinced that I'd spend most of my time doing S&P, and I 
wondered how well my concentration would hold up since I've become "rate 
addicted". As it turns out, what everyone says about QRP being a mental game 
is exactly right. Think that you can run and you can. Think that you're 
"weak" and you will be. The only differences I found between QRP and QRO 
were: be prepared to call several times if you're trying to get through to a 
desirable mult; and don't even think about trying to hold a frequency against 
competition. There were several times when I'd be running (well, "walking" is 
more like it) and someone would appear on or within a couple of hundred hertz 
of me. Usually it was the likes of N6O who undoubtedly simply couldn't hear 
me back scatter or short skip. The solution? --- move, and move now; staying 
only wastes time and raises blood pressure. 

I'd done some research and decided on a goal of 75,000 points for the 
weekend. The number was chosen to give me a margin of a few thousand over the 
score needed to capture the 2nd place slot for all-time QRP records (1996 
thru 2001) which was 72,748 set by N6WS in 99. There was no way with my 
antenna set up that I could challenge N6MU's record of 144K set in 00.

So I started on 15 CW and had a pretty decent hour of 55 with 30 mults. 
Around 17Z I went to 10 CW in the hopes that it might be usable (even with a 
poor A & K) but the result was a second hour with only 30 Q's in the log. 
Back to 15 CW at 18Z. Still gg pretty well and I put 32 Q's in the log in 
about 35 minutes ... Then the totally unexpected happened ... 

I heard a man's voice saying "Hello?" or something similar. Remember, I'm 
here alone in the house. Thinking it's a neighbor (the back door to the patio 
is open), I call out "Just a minute, I'll be right there" and untangle myself 
from headphones and various coffee mugs and step out into the hall ... and 
what do I see? HOLY HANDCUFFS, BATMAN!! It's a San Bernardino County 
Sheriff's Deputy, 9mm drawn and pointing my way!

Well, my mama didn't raise no fool! I know when to freeze.
 
"Hands up", he says ... I do and right now. 
"Lift your tee shirt", he says. (I'm wearing a long Chicago Bears shirt 
that's outside my jeans) 
"With which hand?" I ask, not wanting to make a wrong move. 
"Doesn't matter" ... I comply. 
"Turn around" I do. 

Satisfied that I'm not armed, the 9mm goes back into the holster. WHEW! Then 
we get on to matters of ID and the fact that I actually live here.

This is the ultimate in penalty for RFI. Turns out that on 10 meters, somehow 
even 5 watts was enough to turn on the alarm system, and THEN tell the 
monitoring company that the garage door had been opened (it hadn't). They had 
called, but I couldn't get to the phone fast enough during my 10M adventure. 
Naturally they aren't going to leave a message (the bad guys hate to be 
interrupted with phone calls), so when I checked the machine and it was a 
hang up, I just thought it was the usual solicitor. The alarm company also 
has my cell phone number and they called that too, but of course I had turned 
it off because who wants to be interrupted with calls during a contest?

Naturally, my next call was to the alarm company to tell them to ignore any 
alarms for the next 30 hours. "I'm testing some special communications 
equipment" I tell them. Yeah right!!!

But in the best tradition of Murphy, I "just deal with it" and get back to 
15M. Albeit I had now lost a half an hour of prime time.

So now it's a matter of slugging it out on 15. It sort of dries up and I go 
up to 15 SSB at about 1930Z and spend a frustrating hour or so making 25 Q's. 
 I do pick up three new mults including NH and VE1, so it's not a total loss. 
Back to 15 CW, and a move to 20CW at 2130Z. I stay on 20 for an hour and pick 
up 4 more mults including AZ and NM on short skip.

Overall rate is not great. But then I don't really expect it to be. Running 5 
watts to a vertical just "ain't the same" as 1500 watts to a log periodic at 
130 feet!

Back to 15 CW at 2230 ... kinda worked out it seems, 10 CW ten minutes later 
for few Q's then 20 SSB for some S&P. Talk about an exercise in futility ... 
way too many big guys for me to be heard. 20 CW is a bit better, 18 Q's in 15 
minutes. I skip to 15 CW to see if it's still there, one Q, it's not. 15 SSB, 
NADA -- one mult and 5 Q's.

Down to 20 CW at 00Z ... Ah, that's better ... Stay there for 90 minutes and 
add 70 Q's and 1 mult. Not a barn burner, but better than I expected given 
the station setup.

But now, the stomach wins out. Time for something to eat. So I take an hour 
off and settle down to some really good microwaved stuff!  :>)

Back on at 0230Z. Listen to 20 CW ... pretty much gone. Up to 40 CW, my 
favorite band. However, this is the first time that I've really tried to 
exercise this antenna on 40 and I really don't know how it's going to play. I 
stay on 40 for a bit over 2 hours and pick up another 90 odd Q's. So I'm 
averaging about 40 per hour. Since my "goal planning" said I need to average 
around 26 or 27 per hour for 20 hours, I'm satisfied. In addition, I pick up 
two new mults, VE4 and VE8 (thanks to J, VY1JA for hearing me and calling 
in!) At 05Z I work WC7S in WY and decide to call it a day.

At bedtime then, I'm at 58.5K points with 400 Q's and 51 mults, substantially 
ahead of the plan to reach my goal.

Up again at 13Z and on the air at 1320. Now comes the slog ... As a quick 
summary here are Score, Q's and mults at the beginning of each hour:

14Z     61880     415/52 (got UT)
15Z     67652     453/52
16Z     69524     465/52
17Z     71292     482/52
18Z     73476     497/52
19Z     77327     516/53 (got ND)
20Z     84425     545/55 (RI and finally MS)

I decided to quit at this point. Had just about 20 hours in and only two more 
hours left anyway.

Final breakdown was: 

Band? CW Qs? Ph Qs
--------------------
? 160:? ? ? ? ? ? 
?? 80:? ? 2? ? ? 0
?? 40:? 106? ? ? 0
?? 20:? 159? ?? 12
?? 15:? 157? ?? 45
?? 10:?? 48? ?? 16
? ? 6:? ? ? ? ? ? 
? ? 2:? ? ? ? ? ? 
--------------------
Total:? 472? ?? 73? Mults = 55? Total Score = 84,425
Missed AK, HI, and NV (of all things!)

The end result??

1. More fun than I've had in a contest in a long while (except for FD in 
Puerto Rico, but that's another whole story) and it re-energized my interest 
in "solo" contesting.

2. The FT897 worked better than I expected. I'm glad that I bought one.

3. As always I discovered some things about the station and a new set up that 
need fixing, but that's always one of the side benefits.

4. I achieved my point goal (and then some). But I got beaten out of the 2nd 
place all time QRP score by Wes, W3SE who also did QRP and posted a great 
102K points. That's OK. If I'm going to get beat, I'm glad that it's by a 
friend and a co-operator at N6ME.

Thanks to everyone for all the Q's. It was a blast!!

Message-ID: <008501c26e4f$416672a0$c01238d4@wally>

Hi,

Since we have been discussing the question about additional transmitting 
multiplier stations in M/2 Category in CQWW 2002 with my friend LZ2UU I have 
sent a question to Bob K3EST.
The answer was - stations in M/2 can only use additional RX multiplier finding 
stations which are NOT allowed to transmitt. Only two running stations are 
allowed to transmit at any given moment.
I am posting this since this is not well defined in the rules for 2002 and 
different assumptions are possible ( saw similar comment from US on the survey 
about M/2 category on www.contesting.com).

Message-ID: <004d01c26e6d$4b35c1a0$6401a8c0@don>

I just wanted to remind everyone that the JARTS (Japanese Amateur Radio
Teleprinter Society) World-Wide RTTY Contest is being held on October 19 &20.

This will be the 11th annual JARTS contest.  This is a very fun RTTY contest and
one of my favorites.  There is a lot of activity.  Last year the top 13 
contestants made
over 900 QSO's.

The exchange is a simple RST and AGE.

Official rules in English at http://www.edsoftz.com/JARTS/2002/rules2002.html.
Official rules in Japanese at http://www.edsoftz.com/JARTS/2002/rules2002j.html.

If you do not already have contest software for this contest, the author of 
MMTTY
(which is the best RTTY decoder available for free in my opinion) has written a 
new
program called MMJARTS which is specifically written for this contest and uses 
MMTTY with a sound card.  It's available at http://www.qsl.net/mmhamsoft/.

For WriteLog users, I've placed contest message examples on my WriteLog website 
at:
http://www.geocities.com/writelog/.

For those that wish to get started on RTTY, please refer to my "Getting Started 
on RTTY"
tutorial at http://www.aa5au.com/rtty/.  This tutorial is geared toward using 
MMTTY as
the program to get you started on RTTY.

I'm happy to help anyone who wishes to get started on RTTY.  However, I have to
warn that I'm very busy in my regular job trying to re-establish communications 
to the
oil & gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico after Hurricane Lili.  I hope to have 
this stabilized by
next week and plan on taking a few days off before the contest to recuperate.

I'm very much looking forward to this year's JARTS contest.  I hope you can 
join us!

My original destination has been undergoing a QSY and a major upgrade and
won't be ready 'til ARRL DX, so I'm scouting for something to hold me over;)

Probably stateside since that's what I was planning on $$-wise to begin
with. I do enjoy CW, but phone is the preference whenever I'm going to a
station I've not been to before, or using software I've never used before.

I've got feelers out locally (Pacific NW), but haven't heard anything yet.
I've got time blocked out for both modes, but can probably only *travel* for
one or the other, not both.

I'm no K1AR or N6TR, but nobody's ever kicked me out of a chair, either:).
Recent gigs have included NQ4I, J6DX/J68ZM, W7RM, N6TR, K7AW.

I've always used TR, save for one experience with CT during WW PHONE last
year. I've been an apartment dweller for years, the only equip I could bring
would be a pair of Heils and an old laptop. The last rig I owned was a C
Line which I sold to K7NT a few years ago;)

If anyone has a spot for an upper middle level appliance operator kind of
guy.. let me know;)

*Oh yeah.. ya probably don't want me on the low bands. Very little
experience there;)

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: 
* CW: second Saturday in October - 12 October 2002 - managed by OK2FD

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 
for that QSO. 

SCORING: each valid QSO counts one 1 (one) point. The final score is the 
total number of QSOs. 

AWARDS: Colorful certificates will be issued to the winners of each Sprint, 
and to the leaders in each country. A special plaque will also be awarded 
for the top three scores from all four contests combined. To be eligible 
for this award an operator must enter at least three of the Sprints in the 
year. Results will be forwarded as soon as possible to Leagues, magazines

Was just perusing the log checking results for last Dec. 10 meter contest on
ARRL site. What a great tool. Thanks to all those involved in creating this
great info. I had the following exchange errors. I don't understand the 4th
QSO mistake. Sez I should have had 'Y' instead of 'NY' for N2BZP. No big
deal, just wondered if there is a glitch somewhere.

Hi!

I am planning to be in Gothenburg last two weeks of October and would be 
interesting to join some M/S, M/M group or to give some points from someone's 
home station during the CQ WW SSB contest.

I'll be also available for evening drink, meetings with Contesters, DXers and 
HAMs who would like to meet!

Message-ID: <20021008190304.1550.qmail@web40706.mail.yahoo.com>

I am preparing to write my monthly Contesting Column
for our local newsletter.  This month I am going to
write about what to look for in picking out the best
contesting rig.  I would like opinions and feed back
from reflector members about the best contesting rig:

1. Under $600
2. From $600 to $1000
3. From $1000 to $1500
4. Over $1500

Are there any rigs in these categories that you would
definitely avoid?  Any Why?

Thanks

Message-ID: <000801c26f26$95bfa380$2f6bfea9@tdm1>

Here is a suggestion to deal with the Sunday afternoon doldrums and generate 
interest at the same time.
 
We all know newly licensed, less active, or good non-contest operators. Why not 
encourage them to start on Sunday, calling CQ at about 050-060 on each band, or 
just inside the Novice bands, at their own speed? Even better, some can make 
this a club or group learning effort, with an experienced operator helping the 
new/casual operators in real time, making contacts, managing pileups, or 
working S&P. Everybody wins.
 
I will see you with bells on.

Chuck - There is a nice spot about 10 miles north of Lusk. It is a picnic
site at the side of the road, and is the highest spot for miles around. Very
nice radio horizons. Rent a camper and park it there. If you are using QRP,
power shouldn't be much of a problem. I am sure that the WY state patrol
wouldn't care if you operated overnight. It should be quiet as it is 10
miles or more from any civilization. Vern's beam should work great there.Be
sure that the camper has a heater. - Duffey

Dear fellows contesters and rttyers,
Ukrainian DX Contest (UR-DX-C) committee
decided to change the Rules of the contest from year 2003.
Also we decided to develop two different contests: one of CW,SSB
modes on traditional date and new one of RTTY mode only on
a new date. As all you know there are too many contests on
every weekend. We found some more or less acceptable dates,
(the first weekend of September for example etc), but we would
appreciate your skilled opinion and advice regarding new date.

Ted,

I think this is an excellent idea.  It will need serious "marketing", 
however, to get the word out to get sufficient participation.  I'd suggest 
that club newsletters carry the idea to their members.  It would also be good 
if the ARRL could encourage it, perhaps in their weekly ARRL Letter when 
pitching SS.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] PA QSO Party 2002
Message-ID: <3DA44723.FE884839@bellatlantic.net>

The Frankford Radio Club is celebrating its 75th annivserary this
weekend by serving as the Bonus Point Station for the 2002 Pennsylvania
QSO Party.  The call we will be using will be W3FRC.  All contacts with
W3FRC are worth 200 bonus points.  All stations world-wide are welcome
to participate.  

The contest has two periods.  The first period starts at 16:00 UTC
Saturday October 12th and runs until 05:00 UTC Sunday October 13th. 
Then, there is an 8 hour off period and the contest resumes at 13:00 UTC
Sunday October 13th and ends at 22:00 UTC.

The object for stations outside of Pennsylvania is to work as many
stations in Pennsylvania in as many Pennsylvania counties as possible. 
Pennsylvania has 67 counties.  The exchange is QSO number and ARRL/RAC
section or DX for all others.  Pennsylvania stations will send QSO
number and their Pennsylvania county.  The same station can be contacted
twice on the same band; once on phone and once on CW.  Multipliers count
once.  There is a total of 67 multipliers for out of state stations and
152 for Pennsylvania stations.  All phone contacts are worth 1 point. 
CW contacts are worth 2 points on 160 & 80 meters and 1.5 points on 40
meters and down.  The final score is contact points times multipliers
plus 200 points for each contact with W3FRC.

The contest is fully supported by in Writelog and NA software.  There is
also some free software available.  The web site for the contest has
links to the software and other information.  The URL is: 
http://www.nittany-arc.org/parules.html

W3FRC will be on 9 bands: 1.8, 3.5, 7, 14, 21, 28, 50, 144, and 432 Mhz
from the QTH of Bill - K3ANS in Northampton County.  A special, limited
edition of the classic Frankford Radio Club QSL that was first designed
in 1936 is available.  SASE for domestic contacts to K3ZV call book
address.  DX will be auto QSLed via the bureau system.  We are looking
forward to working as many stations as possible from around the world. 
And, please give out a point to as many other Pennsylvania stations as
you can.

Something on E-Ham or some other non-contesting forum would be a bonus! Hey 
the QRP lists might be a good place too. Heavens knows we'll generally gladly 
spend the extra time needed to work them on Sunday =;^)

The ARRL website carries a listing of every section's ARRL-Affiliated ham
radio clubs, most of whom have e-mail addresses.

I counted 117 in Texas, alone.

Along with the QRP groups, don't forget FISTS.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] QSL Not Needed
Message-ID: <MCBBJAHBAIHDJKDNKBBIOEDCCEAA.kg5u@hal-pc.org>

Some time ago, there was a thread here about contest QSL's.

Today, I received a pack of QSL's from the W5 Incoming Bureau.  Among the
cards were two very nice cards from CN8WW.  After the "TNX QSL(s)", there is
the statement "no card needed."

Nice touch, Ben and crew.

Thanks and 73,

dale, kg5u

Dale,
  I am a sorter for the W-5 bureau and I have been noticing
quite a few cards coming through with this comment on them.
I believe another was ZF2MM (K9PG). I think that is a good deal!

While everybody is thinking about how to increase SS participation, you
might think about the idea of allowing non-US/VE stations to make contacts.
What would be the harm?  Just as in NAQP, the contact could count for point
credit without "DX" stations being a multiplier.  They/we would just send
"DX" for section and all the other information the same as everybody else.
I suspect there are lots of people outside US/VE who would be interested in
getting on and playing, and all that would happen would be that you would
see more activity.  Nothing wrong with that, I say.  Of course, there are
always going to be those who will throw out the usual objection of
invalidating old records.  But so what?  Toss all the old records, start
from scratch, and you'll see even more activity.  Or you can continue
sending unanswered CQs all afternoon.

Bruce, ZF2NT

Frankly, I would not favor such a dramatic departure from the
traditional
format of the Sweepstakes.  While I can respect your desire to
participate
in the Sweepstakes from ZF2, I feel that the damage of turning the
last
remaining major contest for American hams that isn't a transatlantic
shootout into a transatlantic shootout would be fatal to contesting in
America.

The Sweepstakes has always been a contest that allowed stations with
smaller/lower antennas to compete on a somewhat even basis with
bigger stations.  It rewarded operators with the skill of quickly and
accurately copying the exchange the critical edge.  Bring in 1000
Europeans and Japanese stations who won't be sending in logs to
work the 10-20 loudest stations they hear and suddenly the ability
to copy an exchange is secondary to how loud your signal is in
Warsaw.

So under your proposed new rules smaller stations would suddenly
fall farther behind in the contest.  With plenty of Europeans to work,
there will be less interest in contacting the 150W and QRP stations.
That means less and less fun for the new contesters who try out the
SS for the first time.  The SS contest would lose its unique flavor.

And along the way we'd have lost part of the ability of the contesting
community to attract and encourage new members.

> I like the Q Signal  "QNQ"    "Please do not QSL!"    JACK

QNQ already has an established meaning assigned by the ARRL for net
operations:

Move frequency to........and wait for........to finish handling traffic.
Then send him traffic for.......

Perhaps an abbreviation, or 'no qsl pse' would be better. However, contest
operators are unlikely to want to send this in their exchange, and I wonder
if some DX stations are put off entering in major contests due to the cost
of dealing with the QSL cards that arrive some months down the line via the
bureau. If a qsl card arrives on my doorstep via the bureau, I feel
honour-bound to send one out in return. But where is the money to come from
for a print-run of 10,000 cards ? I have great problems coping with this,
and am sure that hams in other developing countries feel the same. Eqsl and
LogbookOnTheAir are a great idea, but once the cards have come in from the
bureau, I still want to send a 'real' one out. Some people go to such
trouble for a 'real' card - I had one the other day that was custom-printed
with QSO details and plastic-laminated !! How can anyone refuse ?

ladies and gents

we've had a last minute drop out for CQWW SSB M/S

TM5C (F6CTT,ARC,F5LND,NLY,VCO and 5B4WN) are looking for a multi-op-experienced 
contester with considerable band opening knowledge (particularly LF) to help us 
achieve a high multiplier count...

With the recent band condx and given our achievements in 2001 we feel IQ4A's 
long standing European record is beatable...

Are you available?

If you feel can you can help us reach our goal please drop an email to:

Message-ID: <1bb.7951bfe.2ad815cd@aol.com>

While everybody is thinking about how to increase SS participation, you
might think about the idea of allowing non-US/VE stations to make contacts.
What would be the harm?  
..............................................................................

......................................

A good idea in theory.....but let's remember the exchange is not the simple 
NAQP exchange. It is a number, precedence, call, year licensed and section.  
It is hard enough to get that info from a non-contester stateside helping you 
out.  Trying to explain the needed exchange to a foreign station whose first 
language is not English is formidable, especially when considering the 
intense strong QRM in SS.  I think it would actually slow the contest down

Part of the challenge of SS is having to S/P Sunday while trying to generate 
a run.  For phone, the are plenty of stations out there...if you know how to 
get the casual contester from stateside to give you a QSO.  It's all in the 
technique and it's what separates the top ten guys from the pack.

Sweeps ain't broken.  Some guys expect 130 plus hours the whole contest.  I 
love runs too, but part of the charm of SS is getting dirty and digging for 
QSOs on Sunday afternoon.

Short and sweet:

This weekend will be the 45th Annual Pennsylvania QSO Party, 1600Z Saturday
thru 0500Z Sunday, and then 1300Z Sunday thru 2200Z Sunday (yes, you get an
8 hour break overnight to sleep!).  Complete rules at
www.nittany-arc.org/paqso.html.

All 67 PA Counties will be active.  Mobiles galore will be running around
the countryside.  Lots of SSB & CW activity, and even some on VHF (146.55
will be the unofficial FM PaQP calling frequency).  160 Saturday night.
Special Event Bonus station W3FRC (from the QTH of K3ANS), celebrating the
75th anniversary of the Frankford Radio Club, will be covering all bands &
modes.  Certificates for county winners, plaques for division winners,
coffee mugs available to anyone who works 100 or more stations, and a
special plaque available for anyone pulling off a 67 County Clean Sweep (my
goal for this year)

Hope to work you in the contest!  Look for me from Allegheny County, W4ZE in
Washington County N3SH in Clarion County, WA3SH from the
Westmoreland/Somerset County Line, N3ZNI, N3WAV and N0VLR mobile, and that's
just plugging the guys in my club... there'll be PLENTY of others!

I kind of like the Sunday afternoon time.  It provides the opportunity to
work for the Qs.  Yeah, not as exciting as running them at 100+/min, but
rewarding by other measures.

One thing I learned to my amusement one year was that operating QRP tends to
level out the rate across the entire contest.  Yeah, you get some "high"
rates Sat night with great S&P results, but Sunday afternoon, you can get
some super runs going as the big guns start getting desperate.  Antennas
help of course :-)

I don't do it every year; maybe 1 in 5.  But, SS QRP has its own charm.

Nothing new or earth-shattering here:

Just allow us to work once on each band. That should
help. You would still need to copy the correct serial
number, at least. The rest of exchange would be filled
in auto-magically, but that's ok. Maybe you blew it
the first time.

I don't think DX is the answer.

I can't completely disagree with encouraging
newcomers, but not sure it is as easy as just telling
them to "get on Sunday and call cq at your own speed".
Good luck finding a clear spot to do that. Get on and
work as many as you can - however you can, sure. A few
may actually try it. 

This comes up again every year, like a bad meal. Think
Newington will listen? I don't. I don't see how
changing the SS rules would generate any more revenue.

Much as I hated to, I had to upgrade to a new machine for radio stuff. The
new motherboard only has PCI slots. Is there a new version of the W9XT card
or a way to work around the ISA/PCI slot problem? I've been out of this area
for about two years working on other projects. Got some time now and want to
play a bit of catch-up.

Yeah, and we could just change the name a tad and call it ARRL DX
contest.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] No DX in SS, please!
Message-ID: <000901c272a7$cd0113e0$0100a8c0@joe>

One of the things I love about SS is it is the great propagation equalizer.

Sure, WP3R gets better prop than anybody, but SS is still a contest where
you don't need to be somewhere along an ocean to win and where even modest
antennas can still provide some fun.

I also think the Sunday doldrums are one of the challenges of SS. The ops
who win find ways to beat them. That's just good competition that makes SS
more than a rate fest.

I don't mean to trash any DX contest. I still think they're fun. But if we
can patiently tolerate (and we do) the propagationally advantaged opening
intercontinental paths hours earlier than us and closing them hours later
than us, they can give us SS.

DX would kill the appeal of SS, nevermind the challenges of working through
the exchange. (How would you get an ARRL/RAC section out of somebody in
Bulgaria, anyway?)

Message-ID: <3DA97F3D.6429@erols.com>

Greetings!

One thing that works for me (when I tire of the 'down and the bottom battle' 
AND has 
worked for new folks as well as casual types of 'want to see what's going on' 
is to
look for space UP ABOVE the din. 

I have found, personally, that on Sunday when folks are SEEKING contacts, they 
will  
search outside the normally prowled areas of the band where the hotbed of 
activity is. 
Have those folks go up above the prime area just a bit and try a few CQ's. They 
might 
have to be a bit diligent to find a spot.. but they are avaialble up the band. 
20M MAYbe 
the exception to this at times as it's limited by spectrum and other activities 
that are 
on there..but if you are a big gun/middle gun looking for Q's/mults.. you will 
lookup 
above the normal spots to snag those Q's.

Plus being just above the fray will let them play without diving into the deep 
end of 
the pool.

I agree that SS is not broken and does not require the changes.  Leave what
we have as it is.

It has been done before, but I like the exercise of the group designing a
perfect contest.  Anything done in committee is almost always a laugh, with
the laughter directly proportional to the number of members in the
committee.  With this big of a group, it would be a real hoot!  ;o)

Remember that Tree has a good idea in Stew Perry (sp)... Make the distance
between stations a major factor in calculating the score.

The only change to SS I would like to see is not one that can be put in the
rules... Aim those darned antennas somewhere other than east and west and
give us northerners a break.

:o)

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Who asked me about TS-930 VFO problems?
Message-ID: <4.3.2.7.2.20021014133254.00aeb8e0@localhost>

Sorry for the OT message here fellas...

Several weeks ago, someone (a contester) wrote to me, asking for a copy of 
my docs on curing unstable/erratic VFO tuning in the TS-930S.

I responded and he fixed the problem.

Seems he used a different method of measuring the duty cycle of the VFO 
encoder (I used a scope), and I forgot to retain his message about how he 
did it. Nos, I need the info.

If that person reads this e-mail, PLEASE drop me a note with the method you 
used.

Thanks for the bandwidth.

Thanks,

Message-ID: <001a01c273b8$75f71920$c3096cd8@jallen>

The pre-SS e-mail is starting to arrive.  A lot of the messages have the
same concerns, so this may be quicker.

Yes, I plan to be on for both weekends, CW and SSB and to put in a solid
effort, missing time for TaeKwon-Do on Saturday afternoons, and Church on
Sunday morning.

For CW also watch for VY1AC, Frank, and during the SSB contest there are a
number of guys... faithful Bob, VY1MB, and a lots of others.  I have really
come to appreciate Bob's help making YT easy to find in these contests.

This year's plan is that QRP will again be remembered by VY1JA every hour at
approximately on the half hour.  If I forget in the rush, remind me.

When QRP is called for, let them call and make their QSOs.  Usually there
are only 4 or 5 maximum and then we go back to general QSOs.  Please do not
drop calls during the QRP QSOs as it makes them more difficult and time
consuming to complete.

We loose East coast propagation early in the day, so I tend to favor them in
the early pileups.  Even during Auroras, the propagation favors the N-S path
so I can usually work CA, OR, WA, NV and others along that general heading,
under less than optimum conditions, later in the day.

If all goes well, I may even have a beam up and be able to add a little
directivity to the equations.  Yes, the rotator cable is here and no, the
good rotator did not arrive yet, so I may be wired with a rotator with no
brake, and you may find QSB that is station related if there is a wind.

The wind is down now and I am planning to go up the 80 foot tower today, and
fix the connections on the big V-Beam.  That will take one unknown out of
Murphy's kit bag.

Hey, this hobby is about fun and this kind of challenge sounds like fun to
me.  A grab bag of propagation and antenna possibilities, that ol'e Murph
can still have a ball with.

:o)

Don't worry, I climb safely and wear the safety belt.

For SS, see you in there.

J., VY1JA

Nope, nor have I received my WRTC t-shirt for working 130 (I think) 
band-OJ's.
And, I'm still waiting for my VP6DI card.
I could probably think of some other complaints, too, given more time :.)

I think there were also early bird awards for submitting the log within a
certain amount of time; anybody know who "won" those? Was there a certain
way one had to "apply" for the worked all awards or the t shirts?

Hi to All,

NOQSL sounds a bit too wide. If I QRV from some remote QTH and am of some 
interest to amateur radio community people, sending NOQSL means WHAT?.. No qsl 
from who.. HIM or ME? In this regard my proposal is NQN "No Qsl Needed". No QSL 
Needed meaning that one does not need to send me a QSL card to receive mine. 
He/she will get my qsl regardless of his/her having sent me a QSL card already 
or not.

Leave the International Q-Code alone. It does not belong entirely to Amateur 
Radio.

There's a Russian station UA3QSY (or RA3QSY, not sure about his prefix)

Imagine a DX station working split on CW and this guy not realizing it's 
a split thing actually transmits on DX's frequency. How do you tell him 
to QSY ?

UA3QSY QSY !

and he goes:    R R R  de  UA3QSY  UA3QSY  5NN   5NN  de  UA3QSY  k

and then everyone on the frequency keys:  QSY   QSY  QSY

and he goes   CFM de UA3QSY   UA3QSY   5NN   5NN .....and so on forever 
...  he-he-he-he    ...     LOL !!!

Business will require me to spend one month in Spokane, WA at the Rockwood 
clinic beginning October 27th.  I'd like to meet any local amateurs during my 
stay.  Since this time frame includes both CW & SSB Sweepstakes contests, I'd 
be interested to know if any multi-op efforts are being launched that could 
use another participant OR if anyone would be willing to host me at a home 
station?  Please reply to: N6HC@aol.com or 714-573-2965

Message-ID: <4.3.2.7.2.20021016140739.01e84778@gsvaresm01.er.usgs.gov>

Are there any differences in the receiver sections of the FT-1000MP Mark-V 
and the Mark-V Field? The numbers in the ARRL reviews of the two rigs would 
seem to indicate that there are, but it's not specific as to what the real 
differences, if any are. I've been assuming that the only differences 
between the two radios are the final rf amp, the power supply, and the 
antenna tuner. Has anyone compared the schematics, etc.?

tnx es 73 - John, W4AU

Message-ID: <20021016193938.84048.qmail@web40712.mail.yahoo.com>

Thanks to all who replied to my question about which
contest rig to choose.  Here are the results in the
different categories:

Under $600
1st Kenwood TS830
2nd Kenwood TS930

$600 to $1000
1st Kenwood TS850
2nd Icom 765
    Yaesu FT990

$1000-$1500
Icom 756 PRO
Everything else received 1 vote

Over $1500
1st Yaesu FT1000MP MKV
2nd Icom 756PRO II
    Yaesu FT1000D

Most of these choices were exactly what I was thinking
of myself in these price ranges.  I was a little
surprised that the FT1000 MP (original) did not
receive more votes. Same for the Icom 761.  The
Kenwood TS950SDX only received 1 vote in its category,
which was surprising.  Also, the original 756 did not
receive any votes, but the Yaesu FT920 did better than
I expected.  It must be a pretty good radio.

Thanks to everyone who responded.  This will help out
greatly with my newsletter article.

This actually happened, in reverse.
K5YG and I were told this story over 35 years ago by an
accomplished contester and superb CW op who is still
QRV.

On OSCAR 6 he was called by UP2OM, and obediently moved up!  After a few
iterations he figured
out what was gg on, sat still and had a QSO.

I thought it was hilarious.  Still do.

VK4DX sez:

"There's a Russian station UA3QSY (or RA3QSY, not sure about his prefix)

Imagine a DX station working split on CW and this guy not realizing it's
a split thing actually transmits on DX's frequency. How do you tell him
to QSY ?

UA3QSY QSY !

and he goes:    R R R  de  UA3QSY  UA3QSY  5NN   5NN  de  UA3QSY  k

and then everyone on the frequency keys:  QSY   QSY  QSY

and he goes   CFM de UA3QSY   UA3QSY   5NN   5NN .....and so on forever
...  he-he-he-he    ...     LOL !!!"

Just to repeat the emphasis of my earlier post. Everyone reading this reflector 
knows someone who can get their feet wet in the SS. Go find them and personally 
invite them on the air. The contest community will do better in both the short 
and long term if we do our own recruiting.

    Good one.

    I had the pleasure at the WRTC2002 of meeting OH2BAD - a Lutheran pastor. 
Other favorites in the past were OK2PAY and UP2BAT.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Sunday in SS
Message-ID: <23.261c707b.2ae0254c@aol.com>

The annual concerns about Sunday Afternoon in SS have again, on schedule, 
appeared.  The solutions proposed so far include such usual suspects as "let 
DX operate", "make qsos once per band", "recruit new operators", and so on. 

There is certainly nothing wrong with recruiting new operators, though if 
someone is that interested, I can't see why we'd want to keep him in hiding 
for the first 12 hours. The others are, IMHO, bad ideas.


But let me once again suggest the quickest, easiest, and most fun way to be 
part of the solution:

Go find a second station to operate!  Or a third, a fourth, or more!!


As many of you know, I've been doing this in CW SS for a number of years. I 
call it Single Operator, Multi-Station.  It's a lot of fun, and the rates 
just keep getting *better* as the contest goes on. Nobody has ever complained 
that I gave them some extra qsos on Sunday afternoon.


This year, there has been a rule change that will make this a more appealing 
option for many.  It is no longer required by the ARRL that the station owner 
be a member of a club for the score to count toward the Club Competition.  
Only the membership status of the operator counts.  So now you can now go 
out, find another station without regard to who the owner is, operate it, and 
count the score toward your club's aggregate score.

Given the choice between spending Sunday scratching for another 400 qsos from 
home, or making another 800 qsos from an otherwise unused station, I'd say 
that it becomes an easy win-win choice to find the second station. You keep 
your rate up, your club gets more points, and everyone gets a shot at an 
extra qso(s).

If you are intent on winning an official award, this may not be for you. But 
without going through all the aggravation of getting ARRL to make a new 
category (not likely to happen anyway), would anyone like to join me in some 
unofficial competition in the SOMS category?


I'd suggest these rules:

1.  Operation must be from completely different locations.  No using a second 
call from an existing station, even if separate transmitters are used.

2.  Add the individual scores from each operation.  

3.  Others (e.g. the owner) may operate after you leave, which would make the 
entry a multiop to ARRL.  Only the score you personally generate would count 
for the SOMS competition.

4.  Usual single operator rules apply, i.e. no spotting, PacketClusters, etc.



Open for discussion, before SS, would be the question of whether to limit 
total operating time to 24 hours, to permit the full 30 hours (not more than 
24 from one location, of course), or set some intermediate limit.


As a goal when operating, I suggest this one:  Make more total points than 
WP3R.   It's a tough goal, which I've only managed once in my many years of 
SOMS.

Anybody out there want to give this a try?  No problem if you don't: just 
think of me on Sunday afternoon of CW SS with my 10 minute rate timer sitting 
at 100.

No, stay away from 811 type tubes for Contest use

Best deal in same power output range is

Ameritron AL-80A

$500 to $600 used price in U.S.A.

Single  3-500Z tube ( 500 to 600 W Out  Key Down)

Possible weakness is bandswitch so do not HOT SWITCH
or operate into High VSWR if at all possible
( I never personally zapped an AL-80A bandswitch but know of a few)

The AL-80B went to electronic bias - had some related problems
with the bias circuit but supposedly a mod available - 
otherwise basically same amplifier as AL-80A but much more costly used

We used AL-80A amps for expeditions to Mexico and have used in Grand
Cayman

And don't scream at me about it (as some of you have already done)-- I think
that's a very bad decision, but I'm not even a member of NARC let alone have

Subject: [CQ-Contest] CQ Contest Survey: Suggestion for discussion
Message-ID: <002501c2779c$13b04d80$7001a8c0@STATION>

I just retrieved my November CQ from the mailbox about 1/2 hour ago.  It
looks like a great issue, with a Joe Walsh WB6AMU interview ... AND .... the
long-anticipated results of K1AR's contesting survey!

I want to thank K1AR for performing this valuable research.  I find it
personally valuable and it is critically important for our hobby.  I plan to
comment a lot over the next days about the topics.  I anticipate this
reflector will be awash in discussion.  This should be fun!

I'd like to suggest a means to keep the discussions organized.  It would
seem to be most efficient to have threads targeted at each question.  It's
inefficient to attempt to "boil the ocean" by spewing analysis of the entire
survey's results.  Of course, there are general issues like respondent
demographics and such, but the questions themselves would best be discussed
independently.  I suggest we use the email subject line to organize the
discussions, with a format like

     "CQ Survey #1:"

... in the beginning to reflect question number one.  This will make it a
lot easier to track the topics.

I usually don't have the time to contribute to the QRM on this reflector,
but I'm taking some vacation time over the next week and I plan to stir the
pot for some interesting (and civilized, please) dialogue.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] QTC Thoughts
Message-ID: <00f001c277af$b5d7dc00$03010a0a@office1>

In the aftermath of one of my favorite state QSO parties, the post-contest
discussion every year turns to things that could be done to make it better
next year.

A relatively new contester has been pushing, hard, for the contest to add
something similar to the QTC report used in the WAE contest, to help spice
up Sunday operating (since Sunday late mornings and early afternoons are
often slow going).  So far, the response has been very strong -- against the
idea.

However, I want to be fair.  So even though I've operated in the WAE and
have my own opinion of this proposal, I'm curious as to what other
experienced contesters might think.

So, the question is:  What do you think of a state QSO party adding a
WAE-style QTC report?  Is it something that would spice up the contest, or
something that would work against it?

Please reply direct, and after a few days, I'll post a summary.

Thanks!

Just like WAE, I assume that QTC reports would be optional on the part
of each station.  That would make it pretty painless to add.

Since most QSO party operation (outside the target state) is very
casual, I suspect that most participants would just ignore it (like I
ignore the QTC in WAE), but it would add an additional dimension to
those so inclined.  Hard to see any downside.

Hi,

While not directly contest related, the "Team Zone 2" contest group has been 
given
experimental authorization by Industry Canada to conduct tests on the 60 meter 
amateur
band.    These will be the first ever operations on 60 meters from Canada and 
will take
place on October 22nd, 23rd and 24th and possibly at other times if time allows.

We will have QSO's with those stations in the USA and in the UK who have 60 
meter
authorization, but otherwise will appreciate reception reports.

Callsign to be used is VA2BY.

We will QSL QSO's and reception reports direct only via VE3BY via callbook 
address.

E-mail reception reports can be sent to radiotoronto@yahoo.com

Complete operating schedule and frequencies are available at 
http://www.qsl.net/teamzone2

CU in the contest on the weekend too!

Hi Rex and others:

I asked this same question before the contest of the sponsors and they
do not accept logs via e-mail.  They want you to use their summary sheet
(which you can download from their website) and send them your contest
disk along with the summary sheet by snail mail.

I heard K7QQ doing a great job from the west coast in PQP.

73,


John, K4BAI.

ATTENTION WITH  "HAMWAG"

Hi all,

Take care when you should have used "HAWWAG" during the WAG Contest.
HAMWAG is a freeware program that was promoted on some reflectors.

I have used it and noticed that using the adif file export, this was
not done correctly.

Band was give as "40" and not "40m"
UTC was given "12:25" and not "122500"

I had several problems when importing this adif file in my main log.

Vy 73   Marc, ON7SS

Assunto:        WL WITH SOUND BOARD

Hi Folks:

         I'm adjusting the Writelog network for our Multi/Two operation ZW5B
in the next CQWWSSB this weekend.
         I'm facing an interesting aspect and I would like to hear the
experts on WL regarding this particular problem.
         I do have three computers in  networking operation with the 10.36G
version.
         All the three setups are directly connected with the specific radio
and everything is working perfectly.
         I'm using sound board for WAV messages and the audio is ok.

         THE PROBLEM:

         There is a kind of beep on the audio exactly corresponding with the
CAT sign on the transceivers Mark V and FT 1000 D.
         Due the fact that the sign CAT is showed every second the beep also
appears every second.
         The beep is overlapped by the voice but you can hear it on the back
ground.

         I would like to know if others faced that and eventually what is
the way to solve the problem

         Thanks in advance

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Problem with W9XT Contest Card/Icom 765
Message-ID: <46.2fe8baae.2ae8b7ad@aol.com>

Have used the contest card with VOX before with no problem.  I've hooked it 
up for CQWW (I work the fone tests, too, but still prefer CW) but now as soon 
as I press the VOX button on the rig the mike keys and won't unkey until I 
press the VOX switch to off.  

I've unseated/reseated the card and the problem persists.  Except for 
throwing out the mike or skipping the fone contest, any ideas on what the 
problem might be and how to fix it?

73 es tnx,

Fred/NA2U
CWMAN...I'D RATHER WORK CW!!!

Yes, it appears they are updated, with the exception of zone records, which
haven't advanced since '99.

Is there a reason RTTY is not included?

I guess we do keep our own records on 
http://www.rttyjournal.com/contests/index.htm
but it would be nice to be recognized along with the other modes.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Recording With DVP
Message-ID: <000001c27bfe$924e2660$235cd63f@gis.net>

Good evening to all,

I'm using CT and have a DVP card in the computer.  I have recorded my CQ and
Exchange messages with no problem.  I would like to know how to record the
alphabet phonetically, letter by letter, so I can use another feature of the
program.  I'm not able to find any instructions in ASCII format explaining
this procedure.

Thank you for any information and good luck in the contest.  Remember this
is a hobby and enjoy it.

It depends on your version of ct.  for some reason ken took that
capability out in more recent versions.  I did try it a couple times
years ago and was never really happy with how it sounded.

The simple answer is that the CQWW Committee does not manage the RTTY
contest.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Help - do you know this balun?
Message-ID: <OF53D5D73E.832F361B-ON00256C5D.004E64FB@marel.is>

Hi:

I have a balun that I bought at a ham radio store around 1990.  It came
packaged with some information, which is now lost, and there is absolutely
no marking on it of any sort.  I need some basic technical information on
it, such as:

a) Impedance ratio (1:1 or 4:1?).  I may be able to measure this using my
RX noise bridge, if I get it back to work.
b) I believe it covers at least 3,5-30 MHz, but I wonder if it is usable at
1,8 MHz?
c) Power rating.

I am attaching a picture of this balun, in case any of you might recognize
the brand and, better yet, have the information.  In case the picture does
not come through, it has the "ordinary" look, i.e. a cylindrical white
plastic unit with an UHF coax plug at one end, two "ears" for connecting
the antenna wires, and a fastening ring at the top.  The diameter is
approx. 4cm or about 1-1/2", and the length is approx. 16 cm or 6-1/4".
The connecting "ears" are nicer than some I have seen - they are made of
brass colored cylinders that the antenna wires can be routed onto and brass
colored screws thighten the wires in place there.

Even if you don't recognize this specific balun, do you have an educated
guess about the power rating (from the dimensions) or if it is likely to
work at 1,8 MHz (do these baluns "usually" extend down to e160m)?  Is there
any simple DC resistance checks I can carry out to determine the impedance
ratio?

A reply before the weekend (antenna time) would be appreciated.

73 de TF3KX, Kristinn.

Message-ID: <5.1.1.6.0.20021027205443.00a888d0@130.94.229.242>

I've just completed a token single-band entry on 10m, with
some 300 QSOs replying to other CQ calls.  In all cases my
exchange was "Thanks one four", except very occasionally
when I added "five nine" - it's hard to kick the habit of
a lifetime.

No-one asked for a signal report.  They didn't need it
because contest reports are always 59, they have no meaning
or significance or value, the logging software had already
entered 59, and we all know that signal reports are not
cross-checked in CQWW logs.

Is it time to do away with RS(T) in CQWW, or is it already
optional?

Message-ID: <004801c27e84$f4044aa0$2b4cfea9@MARC>


UBA DX CONTEST 2003







Rules for non ON stations

The UBA has the honour to announce that this contest will be
challenged under the Patronage of the European Union. The 16th
EUROPEAN UNION TROPHY will be awarded to the highest scoring EU member
station from both the CW and SSB Class C competition.

1.  PURPOSE
To contact as many Belgian and other amateurs as possible and to
provide a way to achieve the WABP and the EC Awards in the "UBA
Contest".

2.  PERIODS
13:00 UTC Saturday to 13:00 UTC Sunday.
SSB :
January 25th - January 26th, 2003
(starting the last Saturday of January).
CW :
February 22rd  - February 23th, 2003
(starting the last Saturday of February).

3.  CLASSES
A = Single Operator Single Band  (A10, A15, A20, A40 & A80).
C = Single Operator Multi Band (5 bands).
D = Multi Operator Single Transmitter (5 bands).
E = QRP 5 Watt output, as class C.
F = SWL, as class C (Rules under item 11).
Remark :
* In all categories ONLY ONE transceiver (or receiver) and
transmitting signal is allowed at any time during the contest, so NO
multiplier station permitted.
* Cat B doesn't exist for harmonisation reasons with the ON
participants

4.  BANDS
Bands to be used: 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meters. The IARU band plan as
well as the frequencies proposed by the HF Contest Committee must be
adhered to. At this time, the preferential frequencies are:
SSB : 3.600 - 3.650; 3.700 - 3.775; 7.040 - 7.100; 14.125 - 14.300;
21.175 - 21.350 & 28.400 - 28.700 MHz.
CW : 3.510 - 3.560; 7.000 - 7.035; 14.000 - 14.060; 21.000 - 21.080 &
28.000 - 28.070 MHz.
The band segments 3.500 - 3.510 and 3.775 - 3.800 shall not be used
unless for DX contacts (this means no one shall call "CQ Contest" in
those segments).

5.  CONTEST CALL AND EXCHANGE
SSB "CQ UBA"; CW "TEST UBA".
Exchange: RS(T) + serial number starting from 001 for each log.
Note that Belgian stations give their province abbreviation which is a
mandatory part of the exchange and must be in the log (e.g. 59001/AN).

6.  SCORING
Each QSO with  a Belgian station counts 10 points.
Each QSO with another EU member station as listed below counts 3
points.
QSOs with any other station  outside the EU counts 1 point.

7.  MULTIPLIERS PER BAND
All Belgian provinces : AN, BW, HT, LB, LG, NM, LU, OV, VB and WV.
The Region of Brussels Capital: BR
All Belgian prefixes e.g. ON4, ON5, ON6, ON7, ON8, ON9, OR0/5, OT3,
etc.
The following DXCC countries from the European Union : CT, CU, DL, EA,
EA6, EI, F, G, GD, GI, GJ, GM, GU, GW, I, IS, LX, OE, OH, OH0, OJ0,
OZ, PA, SM, SV, SV5, SV9, SY and TK.
Remark : a QSO with a Belgian station can give you 2 multipliers
(province and prefix).





8.  FINAL SCORE
 Total QSO points (from all bands) times the total number of
multiplier points (from all bands).

9.  SPECIAL CONDITIONS
The use of the DX-Cluster facilities is permitted.

10. LOGS
Each log must include a summary sheet showing the detailed scoring
information (QSOs, points and multipliers per band) and the serial
number must be starting from 001 (see point 5). Use the appropriate
designation to mark your entry Class (A10, A15, A20, A40, A80, B, C,
D, E). The log summary sheet shall contain the following signed
declaration : "I declare that all contest rules and all the rules and
regulations for amateur radio operations in my country have been
observed and adhered to. I accept the decisions of the Contest
Committee". The IARU Region 1 standard format sheets are recommended.



Remarks :
* Computer logs: Computer logs on 3"1/2 diskettes can only be accepted
if the file format is ASCII or DBF. One QSO per record is mandatory
(ending with CR/LF) for computer processing. The names of the files
will be MYCALL.LOG and MYCALL.SUM (MYCALL being your own call). We
prefer logs generated by EI5DI, WriteLog or ARI contest program as
these are specially written for this contest. We recommend the use of
the SDU contest software by EI5DI. This software was developed
especially for this contest, and is freely available to all
participants. It can be down loaded from the Web Site of EI5DI
<http://www.ei5di.com> or from the UBA Web Site <http://www.uba.be>.
The UBA HF manager will send you a copy upon request and after having
received a SAE with a formatted disk from you. In this case, the
computer files to be submitted are the files MYCALL.ALL and MYCALL.SUM
where MYCALL stands for your own callsign.
* A selection of pictures of operators in action will be published
with the results, so please send us your picture. Please send your
comments with your contest log and send us a picture.
All logs must be postmarked not later than 30 days after the contest.
Late logs will not be considered for the competition. The logs must be
send to :

Contest logs are also accepted via E-mail at following address :
< berger@cyc.ucl.ac.be >. The logs sent by E-mail must meet the
specifications as outlined above for computer logs. We will confirm
reception of your log by E-mail.

11. SPECIAL SWL RULES
Only stations taking part in the Contest may be logged for scoring
purposes. Logs should show in columns: Time (UTC), callsign of
"Station Heard", complete exchange sent by this station, callsign of
station being worked, a RS(T) report on "Station Heard" at SWLs QTH,
new multiplier and points claimed. If both sides of a contest contact
are heard they may be claimed as separate stations and the callsigns
have to appear in the "Station Heard" column.
A station may only appear once per band as station heard. In the
column "Station Worked" the same station may not be logged more than
10 times per band.

12. AWARDS
The stations having sent US $ 5.00 with their log will receive the
results by direct mail. THE FASTEST WAY TO RECEIVE THE RESULTS IS TO
MENTION YOUR AX25 PACKET BBS OR EMAIL ADDRESS IN YOUR LOG.
Awards will be sent to the highest scoring stations from each class in
each country and W, VE, PY, ZL, JA and VK call area provided they have
logged at least 40 valid contacts. Other participants receive a
certificate when 40 valid contacts are logged.
The EU TROPHIES go to the EU winners of class C of both the CW and the
Phone contest.

13. PENALTIES AND DISQUALIFICATION
Penalties :
* Incomplete or incorrect exchanges : the QSO will count for zero
points, but no additional penalty will be applied.
* Deduction of 10 times QSO value for any unmarked duplicate contact.
Disqualification :
* For cheating, imaginary logging and clear, repetitive and
intentional violation of the contest rules.
* For continuous or repetitive violation or total negation of the IARU
band plan.
* If the total amount of penalty points amounts to more than 2 %  of
the total number of contacts.
The decisions of the Contest Committee are final

I operated for not quite half of the contest, but I noticed a very high
number of erroneous packet spots.

What is going on?  Was this on purpose or what?

To make matters worse, it seemed that the only stations that were spotted
were those that nearly never ID!

One spot had a cross-band QSX on it.   That was weird.

Paul, interesting thought!

I have often wondered about we contestors generally PAY NO ATTENTION to RS/T, 
but yet we go into excruciating detail on ALL OTHER ASPECTS of contesting. 
One thing is obvious:  "readability, strength and tone" just are not 
important in our present set up of contests.   The only place I have seen r 
and s important is in county hunting; those guys have really developed their 
r and s reporting to a finely honed skill!

I have pondered other ways of reporting r, s and t, but have not yet come up 
with something better .  We could use, however, a system of reporting the: 
QUALITY OF AUDIO (clarity, compression, bandwidth, splatter, backround noise, 
etc.) and the QUALITY OF KEYING (weighting, too many dits/dahs in characters, 
leading dit/dah cutoff, manual fist, etc.). These are two quality 
characteristics that go beyond the present RS/T system, and would be helpful. 
 Ops receiving poor audio or keying quality reports would/should be 
encouraged to make improvements!  

Maybe we need a contest protocol that would include audio and/or keying 
quality information.  The score would be affected by the reports they 
receive!

I'd appreciate your thoughts.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] CQWW and Signal Reports
Message-ID: <1ab.b0ea17a.2aeeb4ff@aol.com>

I've just completed a token single-band entry on 10m, with
some 300 QSOs replying to other CQ calls.  In all cases my
exchange was "Thanks one four", except very occasionally
when I added "five nine" - it's hard to kick the habit of
a lifetime.

No-one asked for a signal report.  They didn't need it
because contest reports are always 59, they have no meaning
or significance or value, the logging software had already
entered 59, and we all know that signal reports are not
cross-checked in CQWW logs.

Is it time to do away with RS(T) in CQWW, or is it already
optional?

73,
Paul EI5DI


Hi Paul,

Looks as you have some 300 unvalid qso?s logged.
I did about 1500 contacts and received and sent the signal
report in ALL cases, otherwise I would have asked.
Even with the switched off AGC because of the noise, I send
my 59.
To me it was not optional, but could be omitted,

same impression in Northern Germany, 
KC1XX on 10m was rather weak

I agree with your sentiments, but it's not likely to happen.
In the major contests, QSO rate is everything.  Further, if
additional/alternative data is to be recorded, you would have
to have the support of the contest logger authors - quite apart
from the contest organisers.

I believe RST is completely redundant in the major HF contests,
and I'm trying, in however inadequate a way, to get it removed.

Let's face reality, and call it what it is. The CQWW contests are 
exchangeless contests. All you need to copy is the call. The rest is 
assumed and meaningless. I've never seen a UBN report with a busted 
RST or zone, only the call. Do they even check the RST or zone? Sure 
makes it easier to do SO2R, when there's no exhange to copy :.)

All,

I think that some instances of this may be explained by the logging
software.

I believe some logging programs can be configured to send a packet spot
for a new station worked (Or a Specific Keystroke used to Spot a
station).  For S&P this helps others on packet by keeping the packet
window populated, but bad if you are running.  

I noticed that there were a few instances where there were several DX
spots for exactly the same frequency - apparently the running station
was sending packet spots for stations that worked him.  I'm sure this
was un-intentional, but would explain why you follow a packet spot and
it turns out to be someone else....

I wonder in Cabrillo catches the reports where someone sends 569
or 579 and it just gets logged at 599.  I've had guys send a
different report than the standard 599 and I usually change it. 
If we start giving out "real" reports, how would that affect the
Cabrillo logs?

We were not working these stations, and I have no idea where they were on

Perhaps the VFO that was being read for spotting was different than the one 
he actually tuned with.  Note that he did actually spot KC1XX once, but the 
VFO problem occurred before that spot, and continued afterwards.

Bob:
You have a good point. I am trying to justify the effort to rcv spots,
either via 2 mtr or Telnet.
An extra phone line or more coax for the RF ISP link is what I am planning.
Either way seems like a waste.
What is up with endless stateside spots from other stateside nodes? Please
tell me so I will understand!
If I had a 2mtr connection, the entire network would fail due to the sheer
volume and constant collisions.
Someone please enlighten me.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Low Bands operating skills (longish)
Message-ID: <002801c27eed$6f2c0520$93d926cb@martinl>

Following CQWW Phone I have a few ideas and suggestions. This is not for the
rate kings/queens on the equatorial islands but for those of us struggling
with more normal locations!

There are clearly some operations that are skill deficient. One European
Multi is a joke with me. They are consistently over nine here on 40, at
times 40db ove, and I almost never work them! This year I allocated them,
their usual 2 minutes especially after an impassioned plea from their
20meter op.

They knew I was there. They managed to get VK, 5, G and N at various times.
They also had access to a super check partial database because they started
to guess at VK calls that I know have been active in contests.

Let me start with the last point. The super check was just giving them all
and any calls from previous contests, No sorting was done as some of their
guesses were calls that I know only operate in one or two contests each year
and not usually in CQWW. The first job is to get a usefull SCP file. For an
active station like the one mentioned they can create their own from their
past logs. They could take their previous logs for this contest and then
look for anyone who has appeared in more than four contacts biased towards
recent years. That way you mainly get the regulars.

If there were the programming skills it would be useful to be able to call
up a second level of SCP that can be tailored for a particular problem!

Put simply if the operator had the basics of my call he should have been
able to complete the QSO. There are no VK5 stations, or even no phone VK
stations that are more active in contests.

Another technique I use to try and get the weak ones in the noise is to
create a little jigsaw puzzle. I still use pencil and paper for notes....(I
have been computer literate since 1970 so I am well aware of the strengths
and LIMITATIONS of computers HiHi.....). It works this way.

I hear a signal under the pile. It is distinctive and definitely there but
very difficult to read. I get one letter, say a G, I put that into a box I
draw on the paper. As It keeps on I get a 5 so that goes in the box randomly
so there is no apparent pattern to the already existing G. Later I get a Z
and then GN. I put them in the box again. As the G is in two places I put a
line through the single G. Eventually it makes some sense and I call the
guy. It is not always right but it often gets me within one letter of a
correct call. The rhythm of the sounds helps to collect the letters in the
box into a complete call. It is harder to describe than to do.

On 160 I was calling an LY and he came back and asked me to give only my
prefix a few times. Once he had that he knew which was his best receive
antenna and we soon completed the QSO. A technique I will add to me skills
bank.

An EUxx station also on 160 failed to complete the QSO because he got
fixated on the wrong error. He got me as VK3GN and as I tried to get across
the 5 he varied it to VK3GNZ and thereafter he kept varying the last letter.
Very frustrating for us both and we never completed the QSO. I suspect the
letters in the box technique may have helped him to keep away from the
fixation on one pattern. Just listening to the rhythm tells you that it is
xxnxx not xxnxxx.

Finally I wonder why stations on 40, like the European multi I mentioned
first just keep calling and calling. They are not getting rate and they are
not working the rare ones because they create too much QRM.

It IS possible to hear, there are other European stations that regularly
hear my signal through the noise at their end.

I accept that my 40 meter antenna is still sub standard for the rest of my
station and that is the next work to do. However, at best I will only add a
few db's to my signal. That will not be enough without extra good operating
at the other end!

Any one else got any ideas for operating in the noisy low bands? (On the
Saturday I was getting static levels above 9 even on the Beverages!)

Is it time to do away with RS(T) in CQWW, or is it already
optional?

Paul EI5DI


No, I disagree, Paul,

I had a few like you doing the same thing. I needed repeats on about half of
them. Apart from the "legal" aspects, the 59 tends to tune my ears in to the
signal in the noise and then I am ready for the zone confirmation. It is
even more important in contests with serial numbers  where I actually have
to hear the lot.

The other problem was people speaking before the TX was on so all I got was
(in the case of Zone 14)...." Rteen"

Finally I do actually give reports different from 59 sometimes. Listen
carefully it may be your turn next Hi Hi.

George K5KG's comments on a proper Audio quality report that affects the
result is interesting. There are certainly a lot of very ordinary sounding
signals out there. I comment to the worst of them but there are many others
that are just plain difficult to read and spreading unnecessarily. The idea
has some problems as we can affect someone elses result by giving them a bad
report. It would need some check on the reporter as well as the reportee???
Or work on some statistical average result over the whole test?

George,
  Amen and amen!
  Every year I am appalled at the HORRIBLE audio from some of the big guys
as well as the little pistols. Amazingly every year it just seems to get worse.
  Conversely, if I hear a GOOD signal, I go out of my way to compliment them.
Often I will tell the bad sounding ones about their poor audio, to which the
normal response is "QRZ contest"!
  If my signal sounds bad, I want to know it. If anyone ever hears my 
signal sounding
like garbage, please tell me. I might not like it, but I will do my best to 
make it right.
  It is very dissapointing to see what signals are on the air these days.
  If I were a rich guy I would spend a year or two traveling in South America
and southern Europe showing ops how to set the mic gain and processor levels.
These places seem to have the absolute highest level of garbled 
audio...reminds me
of the old QST April Fools Article about the "garbler microphone".
  The best audio I herad this past weekend was KP3Z and I told him so.
Sounded professional!
Just my thoughts...seems this come up every year. Maybe that should mean 
something!

Jim, my apologies for the bad spots.  I did not realize it happened, this
is the first I've heard of it.  We have had a problem occasionally of RF
getting into the computer and screwing up the radio control using CT.  My
best guess is that this is what happened. I am sorry you ended up with the
dups / 0 pointers.  We will try and keep a closer eye on things.

We had that problem here on our 15m position.  One of the ops noted
that our spots were going out on the wrong frequency.  The same one
consistantly.  They stopped sending spots until I found the problem.
Someone had accidentally hit one of the memory buttons on the MP
and the indicator said "VMEM".  I reset it to VFO and that curred the
problem.  I have not tried to recreate the symptom, but it IS vfo related.

I have also seen this happen on 940's when the interface stops reading
the vfo.  The CT memory then just repeats the last known frequency
when using alt-F3.  Bottom line, it was probably cockpit trouble.  In the
heat of battle, this goes un noticed until someone sends you a kind packet
note, or another op sees the outgoing spots.

Seems like in every contest someone invents a new way to reek
havoc.  In the past it was erroneous /BUSTED spots.  This time,
our system was taking some VE spots, and this resulted in, not
only domestic spots, but out of US band spots.  With PACKLUSTER
I can filter out US calls, and, if this is not resolved at our input point,
I can also filter VE sources.
These represent but only two sources of spots that are not useful to us in
the greater 48.  These are not done maliciously as it is perfectly
acceptable
for VE's to spot W's and out of US band stations.  This is a network
management issue.  As far as US stations spotting US stations, that is an
educational issue.  As far as crashing the system from excessive traffic,
again a network management issue.  My 2 Euros worth.

If that was some sort of a weird yet honest mistake, it could be
overlooked as one of the many technological glitches present in the modern
world.  But if it was an attempt to "screw the competition" (Note - I
didn't say it was, I said IF it was), it would be unsportsmanlike in the
extreme.

It would be interesting to see if this happens again in a major contest.

By the way, I don't think the ARRL made much of a profit off your

Dave,

Regardless of the FCC position, it is still the band plan and lots of us
still abide by it. Hopefully everyone will.

I passed up dozens of QSOs from DX that were operating simplex below 1843
this weekend, and I know many other 160 meter ops followed the same
practice. DX stations need to be aware that they are sacrificing QSOs by
not listening above 1843 for stateside.

BTW I heard many Europeans and others operating transceive above 1843 --
now if conditions had only cooperated!

Bruce,
Don't count your chickens before they hatch. I, too, received a plaque 
for RTTY Roundup, anonymous sponsor. The odd thing about it was I 
didn't operate the RR in 2002!
I sent a note to WS7I, who contacted ARRL. They thanked me for 
notifying them, and told me they got some of their files crossed between 
2001 and 2002 and it was a mistake. They're supposed to issue a call 
tag and have it picked up, but nothing yet, after a week...

Speaking of band plans.... What about 40 meters too ?? I think I worked
some guys transmitting on SSB as low as 7005. I even heard some well
known EU stations call guys in the CARR who were listening up above
7150 and playing "dumb" about being out of the band. Seems like some
stations will do just about anything to make a QSO ???

Message-ID: <FJECJCDPGLAELGCJIMMNMELPIFAA.barry@mxg.com>

I have occasional RF interference into my computer,
 especially 10 meters, high power, high SWR caused by
 a big jump in frequency without retuning the Matchbox.

I would have selected the station from a packet spot
with the logging software, and the radio did move to
that frequency, and I called the station, and when
would go to enter that QSO with the logging software:


-Sometimes the computer was frozen, no cursor blink nor
 cursor control, and the three-fingered-salute ALT-CTL-DEL 
 was not recognized, requiring a hardware reset.

-But sometimes, I would log the contact, and then, as I
 tuned away, looking for new stations, the logging software
 would have stopped seeing the radio's actual frequency,
 and instead, it kept that original frequency, even when
 I went to announce a new station.

 I learned to always compare what frequency the logging software
 thinks my radio is on, with the actual frequency of the radio.

 Sometimes I could clear this error and reestablish communications 
 by opening and closing the Radio Setup Ports option, sometimes
 I have to exit and restart the logging program, and rarely I have
 had to restart the hardware to get the logging software to see 
 the radio again.

None of this, in my opinion is the "fault" of the logging software;
it's just what can happen when RF Interference changes the bits in
a computer's memory.

But because I know it happens, it could easily account for accidental
postings of multiple stations with a stuck frequency.

Barry, W5GN

P.S. But only my typing is to blame for my erroneous posting
of a YV5 as a VY5.

There are many foreign countries that permit operation above 7100 khz.  I 
don't know about the Europeans, but don't be at all surprised to hear dx all 
the way up to 7300 khz.

-------------------------
I think the operator will have the final say, but I firmly believe the
problem is the
ARRL band plan.

When some ????????? puts the digital modes at 1.8 up, and SSB above
1.843, I see this as nothing more than another attack on CW.

Come up with some common sense, and I'll go along with it. For all but
contest weekends
we're wasting 3/4 of the band!

I'm not going along with this one.

Message-ID: <20021029.175952.-324709.0.john-k1rc@juno.com>

Hi all,

I was looking at some of the CQ SSB claimed scores
today and (being somewhat slow on the pickup) noticed
a couple of odd type categories.

USA SOAB(A) QRP 
Single op all band (assisted) QRP?

USA SOSB(A)/10 QRP
Single op Single band (assisted) 10M QRP?

Didn't know these were "approved" categories. 
If so, how are they used? How are the use of the
spotting nets used, etc. 

I've been running straight SOAB QRP all these years,
(since '78) is this an amendment to that category? 
Or is it one of those "grey areas" left up to ones
"imagination"?

Sorry if I'm throwing gas onto the fire here, but if its
legal I might as well take advantage of it too.
Its getting so my tribander and single wire can't
compete with the "big" stations even in QRP
category anymore.. (and I haven't got the bux to
build up a super station)

Whats the correct ruling on this?

My firesuit is back from the cleaners, have at it.

Thanks and 73,
John K1RC

Hi Tom

You don't have to be a rich guy.  Just listen to some of the "big
guns" here in the states that have rotten audio.  There was one
K9 station on 20 Saturday that was 10 or 15 kc wide and
splattering all over the place.  I knew if I told him, he'd just
ignore me so I didn't say anything.  73

If rate is everything, then why would someone intentionally throw a curve to
unwary participants by giving an incorrect and incomplete exchange?  The
rules say the exchange comprises the RS(T) and zone; not 'thank you' and
zone.

When the receiving operator doesn't hear what he/she expects to hear, it
causes disruption to the flow of operating--it doesn't matter if the logging
software automatically puts in a default RS(T).

I believe change should be sought administratively through means external to
the actual contest operation.

Why screw things up for others?

Actually there were two anonymous plaques sponsered. And both will be issued I 
am sure. There was just a mixup on your year, Barry.  You won the prior year.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Out of Band operating
Message-ID: <d2.205c4866.2af1759b@aol.com>

Hello all,

I Noticed several comments on the reflector about out of band operation on 
40m that struck a nerve.  Out band transmitting on 40 is something that has 
been around for a long time. As long as there are operators who are tired or 
trigger happy, it will continue.  What concerns me is out of band operation 
on bands other than 40.

The PJ2T team spent considerable operating time transmitting below the 
American subbands on 10, 15 and 20m during this past weekends WW.  We were 
astounded by the number of W's that called in as we were operating there. At 
one point N8BJQ and I wondered out loud if the FCC had changed the subbands 
on us while we were out of the country.

Mistakes may happen at 21198, but in one case I personally remember (Saturday 
morning) we were at 21135 running EU for more than a few hours.  Over the 
course of that time period, dozens of U.S. stations called in. I can explain 
away a few stations due to the fact that their calls sounded like newer 
licensees, but there were many folks that should really have known better. 
Seems as if some of us are willing to take a chance of operating outside of 
our privileges in order to pick up a multiplier.  What's up with that????

Message-ID: <20021030181000.4596.qmail@tri.net>

There was a comment here about continuous CQing with little rate.  This 
brings up a question: 

In the last hour of the CQWWSSB I (central Kansas) was pointed at JA (317 
degrees from here) on 10 Meters and calling CQ with a weak JA coming back 
about every three minutes when in a ten minute period got calls from Iceland 
and Ghana well off the side of the beam and the path in total darkness.  It 
was maybe half an hour past sunset here.  I really wonder about the path! 

My feeling is that it never hurts to put some RF in the air. 

My meager S&P effort, missed Sunday morning path to Eu: 

440 QSOs 32 zones 111 countries.  132 JAs.  Single OP HP 10M only.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Ukrainian Amateur Radio League (UARL) and the Ukrainian Contest
Club (UCC) invite amateurs all over the world to participate in the annual
Ukrainian DX Contest.

1. Contest period:  The first full weekend in November from 12:00 UTC Saturday
to 12:00 UTC Sanday.  (2 - 3. November. 2002)

At the same time it is possible to make a QSO on another band
which gives a new multiplier. It is also permitted for all categories to work
the same station three times (CW,SSB,RTTY) on each band, but 10 minutes must
elapse between each contact.

5. Exchange:  RS(T) + serial number starting from 001.
Ukrainian stations after RS(T) will send two letters, the abbreviation of the
name of the region.
Note: it is permitted to use separate numeration of QSOs for RTTY
mode.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The list of Ukrainian regions:
VI, VO, LU, DN, ZH, ZA, ZP, KO, KI, KR, LV, NI, OD, PO, RI, DO, IF,

I doubt if any of them were intentional.  More likely they were just
grabbing spots and not looking at the frequency.  Its so easy to grab a
spot without really looking at it then just calling that it leaves you
open to mistakes like that.  Its just like grabbing spots on 40m that
don't have a qsx on them and transmitting at the low end of the band.

What would really be nice is if you could program your radio to only allow
transmission on specific sub bands... (hint hint kenwood, yaesu, icom, et.
al.)  While most radios have a lockout for the whole band it would be
useful if you could set band limits for each band. This would not only
protect you from violating your license restrictions, but also it could
help save amps that are tuned for 7200 and suddenly find themselves on
7020 into an antenna tuned for ssb.  I would also like to be able to lock
radios on specific bands for the m/m operation here.  There were a couple
times this weekend when somehow operators got spots for the wrong bands
and ended up with a radio set for 15m and the amp tuned for 20m.

Don't be too sure, Tom. Dunno if it was the same K9
station or not, but I observed the same thing two years ago
in the ARRL phone contest. When I mentioned it on the
reflector on of the operators of that station responed to
me via email and was very concerned that one of their
inexperienced ops might have been running the gain
control on their exciter too high and overdriving their PA.
He was very nice about it.

Unless you are listening to yourself on a second receiver,
you won't be aware of buckshot created in the PA as it
doesn't show up in the TX audio monitor output. A lot
of people are using FT-1000D and FT1000 Mark V's.
Unless you are runnning a Henry 8K (3CX3000) or
some other big tube, it is quite easy to overdrive an
amp with one of these 200W rigs. Overly distorted
audio reduces intelligibility which means fewer QSOs.
If I sounded that bad, I'd want to know about it, so
feel free to bug me if I ever sound that bad.

I'm skeptical that people would be that desperate for a PJ2.  I suspect 
that many of those who messed up probably were assisted stations that 
called you on a point-and-shoot basis.  The ease of operation of the 
current generation of logging software, which normally grabs both the 
receive and transmit frequencies, makes it really easy to screw up.  If a 
VE spots you, with no QSX data, that spot quickly propagates all over the 
US.  It's really easy to overlook in the heat of rapid S&P operation, and 
be into a QSO before you realize you're simplex somewhere out of the band.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] SS CW thoughts
Message-ID: <20021030204450.GA13537@kkn.net>

The ARRL SS CW contest is coming up this weekend.  Hope everyone can 
make it on.

I have had a few thoughts about some of the recent threads and how they 
apply to the SS.  Here they are for anyone to flame at:

1. Use of packet.  Packet continues to be one of those double edged swords.
It can be abused, but it can also help encourage activity.  Lots of people 
get caught up in trying to complete their cleansweep and use packet as an 
aid.  Obviously, if you use this aid, make sure you chose the right category
when sending in your log.  Also, if you are spotting stations, make sure you
are an "equal opportunity spotter".  It wouldn't be right if one station ends
up with some kind of advantage because he was spotted ten times as many times
as the competition.  I am sure they wouldn't want to win because of that 
either.

2. Working of friends...  it is great to get on and help out one or two
of your friends.  However, they will appreciate it if you work enough other
people so that your callsign shows up in the databases for the contest and
isn't flagged as a unique callsign.  Being a unique isn't a problem by itself,
but if a station has a high percetange of unique contacts, it might be an 
indication of some kind of cheating.  Please don't use your club callsigns
to give your friend additional QSOs.  This isn't fair since you are not making
these QSOs available to others.  Unless you move to a different location like
K8MR does, please stick to one callsign for the contest.

If you are worried about helping out your friend's competition to much, you
can be clever and only work guys who are in a different category.  :-)

3. In the SS, most stations will send their callsign after every QSO and 
during the exchange.  I think the problem of not signing callsigns isn't an
issue for the SS.  

4. "Cross frequency QSOs".  Some of the NILs I find during the log checking 
appear to be cases where two stations are next to each other and both log a
station who came back to one of them.  This happens more when the station
calling is off frequency.  The typical spacing of stations in the CW SS
is about 400 Hz.  If someone calls off as much as 200 Hz, both stations 
might feel confident that they are being worked.  Two things can be done
here:  make sure you are calling stations on the right frequency.  Ask a
friend to help you with this or check with a 2nd receiver.  Also, it might
be a good idea when you think this might be happening to send the callsign
of the station you are working.  Some people might thing this is slowing 
things down too much, but I generally appreciate hearing my callsigns at
the start of the exchange, because I am then certain the station is working
me.

5. If you aren't sure - ask for a repeat.  The log checking for this contest
has developed to the point that if you copy an exchange wrong, there is a
99.7 percent chance that it will be caught.  If you aren't sure of an exchange,
ask for a repeat.  The top notch stations end up with error rates around 1 
percent.  However, there are still may stations with double digit error rates.
A little extra attention would greatly improve their scores.

6. If you can't get on for a full effort - everyone will love you for getting
on for an hour or two on Sunday and handing out some QSOs.  You should be able
to establish a good rate for an hour or two as everyone is thirsty for QSOs.
If your are burned out after working the CQ WW, then maybe this is the plan
for you.

7. Remember the Running of the QRP Bulls event - a contest within a contest.
http://personal.palouse.net/rfoltz/arci/bulls.htm has the rules.

8. Speaking of QRP stations - there will be lots of them on.  Give them a 
QSO or two to make their day.

9. Send those Cabrillo logs to sscw@arrl.org.  Our friendly log processing
robot will QSL your submission and let you know if anything needs attention.
If you have a problem, just keep resubmitting your log until it is fixed.

See you in the SS CW!!

KG5U quoted EI5DI as saying -

>> In the major contests, QSO rate is everything.


Hi Dale,

Let's be specific here - you may not have understood the point of my
argument, as you've quoted the above sentence in isolation.

My point was that RS(T) has no meaning, significance or value in CQWW.
If you have evidence (not opinions) to the contrary, then let's hear it.

> if rate is everything, then why would someone intentionally throw a curve to
> unwary participants by giving an incorrect and incomplete exchange?

Where's your evidence?  I responded to 300 contesters who were
perfectly happy with the exchange.  They're professionals - they
took everything I threw at them.  Not a single one asked for a
report, not a single one sounded "unwary".  My log will show
59 sent and 59 received for all QSOs - because that's what the
software inserted.

They saved time and I saved time - looks like a win/win situation to me.

>The
>rules say the exchange comprises the RS(T) and zone; not 'thank you' and
>zone.

Thanks - I've read the rules.  You will understand that I'm trying to get
them updated by drawing attention to one aspect of them.  You will know
also, that no-one loses points in CQWW for logging an incorrect report
- they're not cross-checked.

>When the receiving operator doesn't hear what he/she expects to hear, it
>causes disruption to the flow of operating--it doesn't matter if the logging
>software automatically puts in a default RS(T).

You may be speaking for yourself, but this did not apply to anyone
I worked - they took it in their stride.  We all know, apart from
those in denial, that the only thing that matters in CQWW is the
exchange of callsigns. With few exceptions (the zone can't always be
determined from the callsign) the software does everything and
whether you actually hear the exchange makes no difference.

>I believe change should be sought administratively through means external to
>the actual contest operation.

So do I, and I've tried this approach for several years. If you check
the archives of this mailing list, you'll see some of the evidence.
However, it hasn't worked, so I'm trying a new approach. This one may
not work either, but at least I'll have tried it.

>Why screw things up for others?

Why the righteous indignation? The evidence so far is that it's no
big deal to the people concerned - the ones I worked last weekend.

Paul EI5DI

Tree,

I got flamed a couple of years ago by putting out many many spots without 
including section information.  The flames came from a few stns who were 
using the spots to find sweeps.

If I go assisted (still undecided), I will continue to put out spots without 
sections for two reasons:  1.) I don't want the bother of having to enter 
section info into the spot, and 2.) I don't believe that the section info 
should be included in the spot info; the section should be learned during the 
exchange.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Canadian Ham Exam Experience
Message-ID: <BMELLFEAJLMCBCIGAHLOGEGJDBAA.widelitz@gte.net>

I've been working with Robby, VY2SS, to build up his contest station. I
decided it would be beneficial get a Canadian call. I got the study
materials from RAC. Since its been a while since I took the extra exam and I
don't use the theory stuff on a day to day basis, I read the whole book,
which is well written and takes a different approach than the study
materials I used for my US exams. I studied the question bank (and found a
few with clearly wrong answers.) So I was well prepared for the Basic exam.
The Friday before CQWW Phone I sat down in Robby's dining room and took the
exam. 100 multiple choice questions and you need 60 to pass. After grading
it Robby walked back in the room with a stern face and said, "You got a 39."
Now believe me when I say Robby is one of the all-time pull your chain
sarcastic dry wit humor experts. So I was certain he was kidding me. But he
said, "No, you better look at the answer sheet and see what you did wrong."
To say I was mortified was an understatement. Robby, Luigi, AA1AA, and I sat
down to go over the questions and answer sheet.

Robby read the first question and said, "I would have gotten that wrong
too." Same thing for the second question. Then it became obvious the answer
key didn't match the exam. WHEW!!! Robby called the guy who he got the exam
from and the guy says, "Yeah, I thought I had one answer key that didn't
match the exam, but I didn't know which one." Great.... I had brought the
question pool with the "correct" answers with me, so we went over the exam
questions, matched them up to the pool questions and re-graded the exam.
Turns out I got a 92.

Then Robby suggested I take the Advanced exam. I said, "If I do I'll really
get a 39 since I didn't even look at the material or the question bank."
Robby said I had nothing to lose and it didn't cost anything, so I took the
exam, 50 questions, found I knew some of the stuff and guessed a lot. This
time Robby came back not looking so stern and said, "You got a 76." So
hopefully I'll be VY2TT in CQWW CW.

I was an operator at N4PN this weekend and I unintentionally transmitted on 
the wrong 40 meter split twice (I blame it on lack of sleep on Sat 
night)...it was an honest mistake on my part but I am sure this is not the 
type of operation you are talking about....EVERY US ham who operates 40 
meter ssb in a contest has done it at least once...aw, come on, admit it...

I think the discussion on qrz.com is pretty well balanced and civil.  No
reason to call them clowns.

Contests put a lot of pressure on the bands.  We should acknowledge that not
everyone shares our passion or willingness to put up with QRM.

Play hard, play nice.  Work more CW.

The beauty of this is US stations calling the DX on their frequency i.e. out 
of band, and asking them to "listen up."  Heard this more than once.

I can see it being mistakes, I can see it being some people trying to "slip
one in."

Any time that I've been CQing outside the U.S. phone bands and asked a U.S.
caller if they were entitled to operate there, it seems the reply, either
explicit or implicit, was that it was MY fault for operating there, even
though I'm perfectly entitled under Canadian law.

Sorry guys, there are times in DX contests when it pays to slip below the
U.S. phone band (we don't have subbands in law any more) to run JAs or
Europe, particularly from here, particularly on 15. Please don't yell at me
to "move up!" The runs won't last that long and I'll have to go back to
working above the bottom edge soon anyway, so just relax.

Be all this as it may, I'm not going to get my mic cable in a knot over
this. If you want to call me outside the band, call me.

It's your licence and your log at risk, not mine.

Well, sorry Randy, I call 'em as I see 'em.

Of course not everyone there are clowns, but, I honestly think the guys there 
who want to limit our contesting to partial bands, are, well, clowns. (and 
other things not printable on the reflector) Period.

Not making a statement, merely an observation....

Or - how about prefixes only in DX contests (since there isn't any

You're right, Ron.
Many U.S. guys called in below 21150.
Talking about 21198 - I didn't have a chance to work XX9C  'cuz Stateside
guys were calling him one after another... Lots of mistakes. :-))

Without comment on the actual issue, you broke the rules, and any
statement to the contrary is incorrect.

Unfortunately, none of us "makes" the rules. This would result in
bedlam.

If you don't like the rules, it's always your choice tostay out of the
contest.

Even if the manufacturers don't provide a way to lockout unwanted portions of 
the band, contest software could help out.   

An example would be to set the contest software to only allow moving the 
radio's TX frequency from 21200 to 21450, then if  PJ2T is spotted on 21150 in 
the SSB weekend, it could prevent you from calling, or at least warn you when 
you select the spot.

One problem with the band map and need QSO/mult windows in CT is that they do 
not display the TX frequency if they are different than the RX freq.

Don't some cluster software programs let you specify a range of frequencies to 
filter (in or out)?  That might be another way to handle it.

It'd still be easiest if the radio itself could be set up to prevent TX out of 
band mistakes.

Good for you, George.  You are entitled to do whatever you want.  Packet 
during SS is a bottomless pit of lazy operators, and it starts merely hours 
into the contest.  I've witnessed the harassment (*) given to people who 
put out spots without the sections in them.  I don't understand why it's so 
darned important.  IMHO, getting a clean sweep has been totally minimized 
by the use of packet.  Thank heavens that the ARRL finally outlawed using 
DX packet clusters to work QSOs in Field Day a few years back.

I operated this weekend and made the same mistake there operating 40M and 
forgot to split the  freq once. so I was told by the freq police that I was on 
the wrong freq. But what I really wonder is the stations that run on like 
14.150 20M or within the 3khz space. they should no better because then they 
are on the fringe of the band calling cq there all weekend long.

fwiw and not that it excuses out of the band xmitting but i did found myself
while searching and pouncing (which i did a whole lot more than normal due
to poor cndx in the NW) tunning right past the US band edges while listening
in the headphones and gazing somewhere else and not the vfo dial wanting to
call stns out of the US band!!
ie below 21200 or 14150 etc...... an easy trap to fall into but still not
excuseable!!
admittingly tunning down to 21113 a bit much!!

Even if the IARU band plan is a recomendation I find it hard to
understand why in this case RAC doesn?t follow it.
Things like this makes it confusing for people and the trend not
to follow international band plans will increase.
It?s no better for Sweden,  we don?t dived bands in mode
segments, i e on 15m it just says I can use 21000 - 21450
and use any mode.

Perhaps not everyone shares our passion.  True.

However, there seems to be an underlying opinion
on the part of those who oppose the presence of 
contests on their frequencies that contest activity
should be regarded as a nuisance, trivial in its 
importance by comparison to the more important
activities of rag chewing and the pursuit of their 
own ideals of the perfect contact.

I remember having a conversation on the air about
this in the early 70's.  In those days WCARS 
dominated 40 meters in California during the days 
all year except for the twelve daylight hours of Field 
Day.  Once per year 40,000 or so American hams
dominated every band and every mode making FD 
contacts.

His contention was that his attempt to use WCARS
contacts and a phone patch to avoid paying a $1.20
for a long distance phone call (within California) to
another ham was third party traffic and therefore a
public service, thus being more noble and pure.  His
conclusion was that WCARS should be given a 50
KHz wide contest-free bandwidth.

Of course, I had to mention that FD is an emergency 
preparedness drill, and the most successful of its 
kind in North America, and that his $1.20 phone
patch was less than a noble effort at public service.

The only reason that contests put a lot of pressure 
on the bands is that a lot of hams operate contests.
Yes, contests are a little unruly by comparison to
activity that takes place on uncrowded bands.  A
certain "randomness" prevails, making it necessary
to accept the danger of occasional interference in
order to make contacts.  Occasional to nearly 
constant.  But lets face it -- the interference is there
because there are a lot of active hams on the air 
during contests, and band crowding is a problem
to the contester just as it is to the non-contester.

The very best solution to interference during 
contests is called "time diversity".  If you choose
to not participate in contests, then choose a 
different time slot if you want to avoid the band
crowding.  To ask that your personal interests
should be held above those of the contesters by
reserving frequencies for your personal use is
certainly presumptive.

Hi All:

JUST off 18 hours plane ride from Ascension Island, with K6NA and N6ND.  Our
3 man M/2 from  ZD8Z was a blast, and pleased to provide the double mult to
so many of the "deserving".  And even to those somewhat less
deserving..............

Probably the singular most humorous event for me during the contest was an
encounter with the 15 meters operator @ the USA's biggest M/M station (call
signs omitted to protect the guilty),  boldly,asking me to QSY from a
frequency that I had occupied for the better part of an hour.  When I
replied, "xxxx, you're not even bothering me", he said  "And you're not
bothering me either, Jim, but your pileup is, please QSY".

THINGS I WISH I HAD SAID DEPARTMENT:  "Now, xxxx, you probably have a
(minimal) comprehension of what the rest of the USA has to endure with your
constant M/M CQing, and the pileup YOU bring in to the USA QRM envelope".

Thanks for making my day.

This is taken care of in some logging/packet cluster software.

In the logging program I use, OOB spots show up in RED with an X next to it.
40 phone spots without qsx do show up this way too, but at least it's really
hard to accidentally select an oob freq.

eHam just ended a "survey" that asked a related question, "Are there too
many HF contests..."  It was interesting to note that the results were
balanced for quite a while - about 50/50 - for many, many days, then the
anti-contester vote shot up to a 58% to 42% lead by the end (maybe in the
wake of CQWW).  And the entire time, the number of comments posted by
contesters FAR outnumbered those of the anti-contesters, and it was pretty
civil.  Read into it what you wish.

I do too.  There are a couple of issues at work here.  Those with more
maturity
in this hobby (wasn't that diplomatic George) realize that a broad signal
means
that less signal is being delivered within the target bandwidth.  That means
wasted
power and LESS effectiveness (not to mention SOUNDING crudy).  More often
than not, when I have been alerted to my poor signal quality it has led me
to find
other problems, usually intermittents in the antenna system.

We aren't talking about people who call on the wrong VFO.  We are talking

For the newbies, a few sweepstakes hints Tree left out are:

1. If the station you are working sends sect? and you don't know yours,
   choose from the following: NL, NWT, QC or WY, selecting a different
   one when asked.

2. If the station you are working sends ck? send the last four numbers
   of the last check you have written.

3. If you hear qsy, that means the frequency is yours, I am qsy'ing.

4. QSO B4 or B4 means I'll be looking for you on the other four bands,
   please work me.

Good luck and see you on the funny farm!

The assertion that "weekend operators" lives are ruined by contests is
absolutely absurd.  Us contesters know that there are really only 6 weekends
where the fone bands are overrun by contesters doing what we do, precluding
what they do - on 'their' frequencies .

Those 6 contests are: CQWW SSB, SS SSB, ARRL DX SSB, WPX SSB, Field Day
("it's not a contest":ARRL), and IARU.

The last two are unique in that both modes are being used.

CW is generally not a problem.

The way I do the math, the non-contesters have 46 weeks every year without a
major contest.  Granted, there seems to be some sort of minor contest every
weekend, but they do not take over the entire SSB allocation on all bands
like the above.

The issue is that these non-contesters use frequencies that are also used
during contests, and they feel that they should have the right to those
frequencies all the time.  Herein lies the absurdity.  Unfortunately, it
seems that some amateur radio 'leaders' feel the need to pander to these
individuals that complain as if they represent some large voting body.  They
don't.  They're a vocal minority of self-centered egotists that use the old
"squeaky wheel gets the grease" logic.

The reality is, there are other modes people can use during contest time.
There are other bands that can be used; WARC, VHF/UHF, low bands during the
daytime, high bands during the night time, etc.  The claim that they cannot
operate is totally specious.

It's high time that the 'leadership' recognize the bleating of these 'sheep'
for what it is.

Hi Pete,

Interestingly PJ2 was a rare mult this past weekend.  We missed it on 5 
bands, only working one on 10m.

Seems that ease of operation has translated into poor or sloppy  operating 
technique.  After having operated in multi environments for many years and 
having observed lots of poor operating practice related to packet, I guess I 
just need to add this on to the list.

Maybe someone should write a book entitled "Packet assisted 101" to help both 
neophytes and old vets do a better job using what should be a great tool.

A half-hour or so after I had *dug* my way onto 21200.5 (OK, it was 
luck) and started running, I was essentially asked, by probably that 
same xxxx (who is ALWAYS on 200.5), "Are you going to be there all

not Guam.  If you are using CT, type:

During these 6 weekends the non contestors can use the
WARC bands, so it is really a non issue.

The very best solution to interference during

reserving frequencies for your personal use is
certainly presumptive.

----------

On the QRZ survey there was a similar message (time diversity) from W5HTW.
In these times when common sense is more precious than bagging that last
section with 5 minutes to go, it was great to read his post along the lines
of what you mention above. He is not a contester, but seems to co-habitate
well on the same planet with same. Fancy that.

As far as pressure on the bands--it seems there must always be a lot because
every few weeks I get a letter saying we are going to lose our
frequencies--send money. I say the more pressure from "within" the bands the
better. There's plenty of pressure from "without" to grab our freqs, or so
I'm led to believe. If I was one of the guys in charge of frequency
auctions/allocations and I tuned across the ham bands and they just happened
to be full of stations hollering "Ur Figh Nigh Kilo" I would be frightened
and move on to other less active parts of the spectrum to put on the
chopping block.

We might see you this weekend from the new NorthCentral Montana section
where we had absolutley no degrees this morning. We now have 10 deg F. Still
time in these perfect conditions to do some antenna work.

All the best,

Message-ID: <20021031101512.D21756@cs.utexas.edu>

     For many years now, during the ARRL November Sweepstakes, college 
and university clubs have gotten on the air from campuses around the country 
to compete against one another.  This year, the Collegiate Championship is 
on 2-3 November 2002 (CW,) and then the weekend of the 16-17 November 2002 
(phone.)  Some of the schools will be entering S, others will be M, U, A, B,
or Q.  Many will be sending older check numbers, reflecting their early 
contributions to ham radio through organized on-the-air activity.  Look for
checks in the teens, the twenties, and the thirties!  Details are online at 
http://www.collegiatechampionship.org/

     So far, the following are known to be planning to operate the contest,
in either CW, SSB, or both modes:

  W0YC University of Minnesota 
 K5UTD University of Texas at Dallas
WA1VMU Boston University
  W5AC Texas A&M University
  N5XU University of Texas at Austin
WB9QFW University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point
 W4AQL Georgia Tech
KB1GTB University of Connecticut School of Law
 W0EEE University of Missouri at Rolla
  ...and certainly several others...

    If you don't see your alma mater or local college on the list, help
encourage their ham radio operators to get in on the fun!  It's still 
over two weeks until the phone contest weekend - plenty of time to get
a plan together.

I think a little leniency should be granted when someone uses the wrong
VFO.  I've done it when operating the graveyard shifts in a contest and
with very little sleep in the early morning hours couldn't figure out why
the EU 40 meter SSB station on 7046 listening on 7222 wasn't answering me
when I called. He didn't respond till I switched to the correct VFO!  So
at least when I finally worked him, I was legal.

Before the flames start too much on my next comments,
understand that I am mainly a CW operator, who is
getting interested in the digital modes also.

Maybe part of the solution to operating out of band is
to reaccess the US phone band limits.  Take 15 meters
for example.  SInce the ARRL helped to kill the Novice
license 10 years ago, why do we need 100 KC of CW only
at 200 watts between 21.100 to 21.200.  Remember that
during the CW CQWW contest.  When a US station goes
above 21.100, as they will if we get any decent
propogation, turn off the amp.  Same for
28.100-28.200.

There really is no reason today for having a "Non US
phone band" like there may have been in the past.  The
days of the US ham having the good equipment and the
rest of the world having to operate on junk are over. 
Hams in JA, EU, Asia, SA are using stations that would
put many US hams, myself included, to shame.  

There is no reason we could not drop the bottom of the
US phone band to 21.150, or .140, while saving a few
KCs for the novices that still remain.  There are a
few, I worked one last year on 15 CW.  Same for 80
meters.  I believe we could easily drop phone down to
3.650 or so, which would eliminate much of the split
operation now needed there.  We already have the
3.500-3.600 segment for CW, and 3.600 -3.700 is pretty
much a vast wasteland here in the US with little CW or
digital operating taking place.  Ditto for 14.100 to
14.150.

Lets get with the times and get the US phone bands
readjusted, especially now since we are handing out
general and extra class licenses to anyone who can
sign their names, and these new operators, for the
most part, are not running CW for obvious reasons.

John, NE0P makes a good point. ALL of the bitching is about SSB use.
And a careful
glance at the call signs of the individuals bitching should give a
pretty good hint as to the license class.

First they are "given" licences, and then complain about interference
to their plug and play radios, and inability to work DX during DX
contests.

I fully admit to having my "senior moments", but there must be a
comparative "moment" yet unheard of for these people.

I have to go along with Dallas here. I've told more than a few (mostly
wrongcoasters )
that they need to check their signal, and not once have any replied
with anything other than "thanks..will check it out"

If you don't tell them, how will they know?

I'm surprised that no one has commented that on 21000.5 or such, you
are absolutely 
out of the US band according to both ARRL and FCC announcements. I
believe (???) they state quite emphatically that 2.5 kc up from the
bottom is the absolute minimum.

Heck, at .5 up, you wouldn't be legal even on LSB!

I have gotten two replies from two people that belive it is ok to operate
14.150 USB because there will only be a signal above 14.150. But let me ask
you this are your radios calibrated with scopes to make certain they are not
starting out transmitting below 14.150 I ask.  I am a general operator and
many Extra and some dx stations are operating sometimes on the US
extra/general fringe such as 14.225. so do I call them or not? I need that
country. And I also ask this why is it every time I call CQ contest at 7.229
LSB the people from the WAS net at 7.230 tell me that  I am interferring
with the net?  If  theory holds true then everyones interference is really
not interfernce just god propogation splattering over above the LSB
signal....I am pondering to wonder doesn't propogation have anything to do
with weather you can hear anyone even though thier calibrated signal is
doing what it should.

Same thing happened to me calling the T88  this weekend  on 40.  We all get 
brain cramps working split on 40...especially if you do only 40 for the whole 
weekend.  I think I heard just about every big multi-single and multi-multi 
do the wrong VFO thng over the weekend on that band....and lots of the big 
gun single ops too.  It happens to all of us.  A gentle "wrong VFO W1ABC" is 
all that's needed.  No need to get nasty.

Nat,

You have clearly landed on the issue of whether or not to include the section 
in the spot.  Your toungue-in-cheek suggestion of only spotting the prefix in 
a dx contest actually has some merit; doing so would lead to a reduction in 
the number of broken-call-spots.

But back to the central issue of including sections in the spots.  For sure, 
my position of only posting calls and not sections does not sit well with 
those who are perusing spots for section mults.  And, for that I incurred 
untold rath in the last SS when I did that.  [I also got a great deal of 
support for my actions as well.]  But not to worry, this year I am not going 
to use packet so my spots will not be there.

But to complete my thoughts.  I consider the section information something 
that must be copied correctly when a station is worked.  The same goes for 
serial no. and check.  Heck, if I bother to post the section in a spot, I 
might as well go ahead and complete the job by posting the the other info as 
well.  And, of course, that is why I draw the line by posting only the 
callsign, frequency and time and not a pennyweight more!

Yes, I know this is controversial, but so be it.

73, Geo...

Well, I don't see what would be wrong with 21000.5 As long as you're
keying waveform is reasonable and you're not sending faster than 100
wpm. ;-)

No, that's not stated emphatically by anyone. 

In practice and to be clear, on USB, how close one can hug the low edge
comes down to the sideband supression and frequency accuray of your rig. 

> Heck, at .5 up, you wouldn't be legal even on LSB!

Huh ?!? 

Wrong sideband or wrong edge. 0.5 kHz up from the bottom on LSB is most
definitely out of the band!

I am pretty sure you are wrong about 28100 and above.  You are
absolutely correct about the 200 watt power limit in the old Novice band
of 21100 and above.

On 15 meters, Ed, you would have more of your SSB signal out of the band
on LSB than when you are on the usual mode of USB.  What you have to
really watch on 15 meters (and 20, too) is the upper limit of the band. 
There seem to always be stations above 21347 and often also above 14347,
although less often than on 20, probably because there is more
non-contest activity on contest weekends on 20 than on 15.  A few years
ago, I and many others, got OO cards for quick replies to a DX station
operating about 14348 in a DX Contest and I have been much more careful
about that since then.

Hope to see you this weekend as guest op at W4AN in ARRL SS CW.  Have
fun.

73,


John, K4BAI.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] New Contest Logging System
Message-ID: <LPBBJJHKFOOEGKEBKHOJEELIEJAA.kg5u@hal-pc.org>


Due to the increasing difficulty, cost, resources, and time computers are
causing in amateur radio contesting, our club has determined there is a need
to economize and simplify.

Therefore, the goal is to remove all computers from amateur radio contesting
by Dec. 31, 2002.

Instead, everyone will need to purchase an Etch-A-Sketch for contest
logging.

There are many sound reasons for doing this:

1. No software problems; Everyone will be using the same system.
2. No technical glitches causing lost logs.
3. No more wasted time reading and writing emails or playing solitaire when
you should be CQ'ing or S&P'ing mults.

 Frequently Asked Questions for Etch-A-Sketch Technical Support:

Q: My Etch-A-Sketch has all of these funny little lines all over the
screen.
A: Pick it up and shake it

Q. How do I turn my Etch-A-Sketch off?
A: Pick it up and shake it.

Q. What's the shortcut for the Undo?
A: Pick it up and shake it.

Q. How do I create a new log?
A. Pick it up and shake it.

Q. How do I set the background and foreground to the same color?
A. Pick it up and shake it.

Q. What is the proper procedure for rebooting my Etch-A-Sketch
A: Pick it up and shake it.

Q. How do I delete a log on my Etch-A-Sketch?
A: Pick it up and shake it.

Q. How do I save my log on my Etch-A-Sketch?
A: Don't shake it.

Enjoyed your post about the station that owns the bottom of the band... 
 If we all had that much aluminum I think we would try to do same, too!

But Jim, how did you Californinas do from Ascension?

Inquiring minds want to know!

I have never seen this figure written anywhere.  I have worked many DX
stations up about 0.7 kHz from the bottom of the CW band.  This should be
adequate if you're not sending at 200 wpm!

100 Hz is a litle too close to the band edge for my taste, though.

I don't see this at all.  Each and every QSO in SS is valuable.  I would
think one would want to work anything that is spotted in order to maximize
their score.  If it turns out to be a mult it's a bonus.

As far as I can tell, the only place this argument has any merit is for
those that are persuing 80/80.

John,

I agree that phone bands should be expanded to reflect the bulk of activity 
that has come to pass as ham radio these days.  But you miss the point.  Too 
many people were either sloppy, confused (I recieved a report today thru a 
friend that someone who called just plain didn't know it was out of bounds to 
work us at 21135), or just plain greedy.  I think those are the real issues.

Of course.. if the message was signed by Larsen
E. Rapp W1OU then we all should know that our
tongues should be pressed quite firmly against
the inside of the right cheek. (in the mouth...
the mouth! HEH0

And if you need to know who W1OU is... check QST
(any April issue) back in the 60's and 70's.

I recall one of his articles where he provided a
great technical tip! His advice told us that we
can increase the strength of our RF output signal
levels  by using different diameters of coax. 

Start out with RG8. THen go to RG58, then RG141.
The electrons will be compressed as they move
from the larger diameter cable to the next
smaller diameter cable which will make them
increase velocity which will make them fly off
the antenna much much faster!

Ok.. remove tongues from right cheeks!

I am a newbie and not set up to be a serious contester--software, etc. 
However, I like working contests for several reasons. First, MOST operators 
in contests are very good and it is a pleasure to hear them go at it (and 
work the ones I want to). Second, you can pick up some mighty interesting 
locales by careful listening. Third, it's fun to pick out weaker signals 
among the strong and try to raise those stations. Fourth, by the closing 
hours of the contest, you can be welcomed with open arms.

What I don't like about some contesters is their splatter on SSB aggravated 
by shouting into their mikes. How this leads to higher scores, I do not 
knoww, and I abvoid these foplks.

I think that we should go below 3700 to 3650 at least.
 Here is one reason why.  On other bands, like 40, 15,
10, and even 20 (without the novice band), the
convention is to have 100 kc for CW operation, then a
novice band, and then phone operation.  Well on the 80
meter band we have 100 kc for CW operation, and then
another 75 kc until we get to the novice band.  We
should at least take advantage of that extra unused
spectrum.

Nothing wrong with operating on 21.347 and up a
little, unless your sideband extends for another 100
kc-I heard a few close to that last weekend.

Message-ID: <20021031214609.19886.qmail@web40708.mail.yahoo.com>

Now that we are coming up on the weekend where ARRL
sections receive more attention than anything else,
does anyone understand any rhyme or logic when it
comes to creating ARRL sections and/or mults for the
November SS?

For example, a few years ago they split Washington
into EWA and WWA?  Why split this state and leave more
populous states-like Illinois and Ohio as single
sections?  I think it could be justified to split
Illinois into 3 sections: Chicagoland, Northern
Illinois, and Southern Illinois.

Why was NNY created?  There aren't that many active
hams in NNY to create a new sections.  That is usually
one of the hardest US sections to get in the
Sweepstakes.

Why was PR split off from the rest of the West Indies
section?  Same for why Newfoundland and Labrador now
counts separately from Maritimes sections.

Lets hope they dont' split Newfoundland and Labrador
apart, or split up VY1, VE8, and VY0 into separate
mults or a sweep will get really difficult.

Glad we don't have the KZ5 section to chase anylonger,
that makes things easier.

I guess I am really curious as to what warrents a new
section creation?  And why haven't some taken place in
some of the larger states?

My keying in full break in with the 756Pro-II is choppy...like the weighting 
is way too light.  I suspect it is due to some kind of a PTT timing problem.  
No adjustment I can make in the radio's KEYER menu or with the "BK IN DELAY" 
control makes any difference.

Does anyone else experience this?

Message-ID: <3DC1E138.7020700@tampabay.rr.com>

While achieving a Sweep is part of what many feel SS is about - as far 
as scoring, looking for that last section versus running sections - your 
bigger score will come from running stations!

The major contest software programs have a mult is owrth this many QSOs 
screen section - wqhen you approach the sweep note the increase in your 
score that non mult Q was and then when you do work another you will see 
that it is not - you said

"one's ability to do well is severely curtailed."

as reagrds not sweeping - I wholeheartedly disagree... having done SS a 
lot, inclduing a threepeat in multi-single,  after only landing in the 
SINGLE OP Top Ten once, as a fourth place finisher who was the only Top 
Tenner not to Sweep I can say - do the math...  The winner is based on 
scores, not on Sweeps - the Sweep is a personal goal but is NOT 
mandatory and you are NOT severely curtailed by missing one!

See everyone this weekend - I will be in the rare West Central Florida 
Section!

Perhaps, but adding the section into the spot certainly doesn't hurt
one's score either.

Overall, yes, but in the beginning of SS, one mult is worth far more
than one QSO. Therefore, if one has only limited operating time, it's
better to get lots of mults and some QSOs rather than few mults and many
QSOs.

> the Sweep is a personal goal but is NOT

Alright Jim, prove me wrong. If you make it into the top 10 for any
category in SS CW this weekend, I'll agree with your statement that
sweeps are not necessary to win. After all, you have a good station and
you are a good operator, so if making the top ten does not mandate a
sweep, you should be able to prove it.

Message-ID: <01d601c27be4$ea414060$1d2c58db@master>

Hi All

A reminder that the 2002 Oceania DX contest is happening over the first two 
weekends of October.
This will be the 66th Oceania DX Contest - lets make it the biggest and best 
yet!.

PHONE Contest: 0800 UTC Saturday 5 October to 0800 UTC Sunday 6 October
CW Contest: 0800 UTC Saturday 12 October to 0800 UTC Sunday 13 October

The rules are similar to last year except that Single-Op Single Band logs are 
required to record ALL
contacts made by the station, both on the band chosen for the entry and on any 
other bands.
Furthermore, we are looking for as many logs as possible to be emailed in 
electronic Cabrillo
format - to help the Committee process the logs and get the results out more 
quickly.

There are 7 new plaques/trophies available to the winners in various entry 
categories. We will
also award certificates to the 3 top scoring stations in the Non-Oceania Single 
Operator All
Band category.

The full rules are available from 
http://www.nzart.org.nz/nzart/update/contests/Oceania or,
alternatively, forward a request to octest@nzart.org.nz for a copy of the rules 
to be sent to your
email address.

The contest is supported by most of the popular contest logging packages 
including CT, Writelog, TR
Log, and SD Logger. See 
http://www.nzart.org.nz/nzart/Update/Contests/Oceania/software.htm for more
information about the compatibility of the various software packages.

We are working hard to promote a good turn out from Oceania stations. You can 
expect to find some of
the rarer Oceania prefixes - e.g.,
VK8DA, Darwin Amateur Radio Club, PH and CW
V63SC, Micronesia, Op JM1LBO, PH, 15m and 10m
3D2/W7DRA, Fiji, PH and CW

Remember that, as well as being a great opportunity to work Oceania stations, 
this contest is also a
good time to check out your station and start "warming up" for the CQ WW 
contests!

We look forward to seeing you in the 2002 contest. Please direct any inquiries 
to
octest@nzart.org.nzart

OK, I will ask the obvious question. What does WAE/RADXC do different. From 
out here in the middle of nowhere the European contests are often difficult 
to work from behind the east coast stations so my experience with them is 
very limited. How do they distribute the results? Publishing them in the 
organization's magazine is the obvious choice. That is the least expensive 
way for them to do it. But you seem to be saying that it is done 
differently over there. Before I can form an opinion I need more information.

Message-ID: <OF4E39B3D1.678E9795-ONCA256C45.001AB472@aap.pwcinternal.com>

Reading the Oceania DX Contest multiplier rules, I'm considering signing as
a portable prefix " VI2".  This is a valid ham prefix here in VK and our
ACA have the VI prefix  currently on issue to 3 ham stations in VK with
expiry dates after the Oceania contest.  I checked the AX ham license
prefixes on issue in VK as at today, and none came up....

The reason I'm asking is that I recall Jim VK9NS fell foul of something
like this a few years back.  Figured I'd pop the question and arm myself
with re-prints of the current VI licenses and fend off any detractors up
front.

I'm keen to get another Oceania prefix alive.

"it might have a lot to do with how it is presented to them"

which is a very true sentence. So it is a challenge to guys like us
to make some of our younger friends understand where the fun is 
instead of feeling bad and just letting them talk BS about something 
they dont actually know much of.

That requires a bit more of a positive attitude.
Which is missing in this whole discussion, anyway.

>>Things has to be changed and not stay like
>>they've always been, because times are changing.

Yes but you will never change anything in this world by just bitching.
You will only change it by thinking up something better.

You stated some very true and valid points in your emails.
See, you already changed N0FP's mind.

Now if you had to choose between writing the following 2 letters to CQ 
to explain what the problems are, in your point of view. 
In one letter you abuse them etc. 
In the other letter you find a nice and polite way to explain all your 
points. 
Which one do you think they are going to throw away unnoticed?

Well I guess it will still be quite difficult to change their mind but
I think you get my point.?

>> I'm 19, and when all those older guys past away I wonder who 
>> will I talk to?

Comon, dont be so negative.
I guess it is up to us to make this hobby stay around a bit longer.
It probably still has a chance. Like sailing has a chance in todays
motorized world, too.

BTW, I am now 30 years old. Damned, its going faster than you think :-)

73s and CU on the air! (which is where the real fun is, not in the stupid
results book... ;-))

Subject: [CQ-Contest] ARRL Discrimination
Message-ID: <009501c26922$c8fe2aa0$d29c0ec3@shack1>

 Jim, K1IR makes a very persuasive argument in my view.  I am a non US
contester but I am also a fully paid up member of the ARRL and intend to
remain so. I would gain nothing myself from an earlier release of contest
results to non members. Though.......

"I'd like you to come play my game, but by the way, I'm not going to tell
you how you did until a month after everyone else, unless you pay me some
money", is a position which has a rather ugly feel to it.

There is no denying the ARRL has to operate viably as a business and has
therefore to maintain focus on securing its revenues, but this is not a good
way to aim to do it.  Someone's thinking is badly off track here.

There are many members of the contesting community around the world and many
more who may be attracted to contesting who simply don't have the luxury of
being able to afford to pay for ARRL membership.  For the ARRL to take steps
to further disadvantage these folks is IMHO unnecessary and wholly
undesirable.

For my money as a member of ARRL I would like to see staging of results
release abandoned forthwith and all efforts applied to finding ways to
further speed up results publication.  We all hate the long wait for results
to appear.

Thanx to all who emailed me direct and on the list as well about my question 
about headset mic vs. boom mic.   Almost without exception it was suggested 
that I go with the headset.  Lots of good advice and the benefits/drawback 
of each.  This list is a good resource for the contest community.   Will be

Ok, here is my take on the situation. My guess is
that members (who pay somewhere around 40 
bucks a year now I think) get a month's advance
peek at the scores.

Personally, I wouldn't mind if they let everyone look
at the same time. No biggy to me. But, if the stations
that are non-members get to look at the scores one
month later, what is so bad about that? Maybe as
an ARRL member, that is one of our "perks" for our
membership dues?

I just don't see the big deal about having to wait a
month to see the scores. This is sure a lot faster
then when we all had to wait for months to get our
QST to see the scores.

OK, I will ask the obvious question. What does WAE/RADXC do different. From 
out here in the middle of nowhere the European contests are often difficult 
to work from behind the east coast stations so my experience with them is 
very limited. How do they distribute the results? Publishing them in the 
organization's magazine is the obvious choice. That is the least expensive 
way for them to do it. But you seem to be saying that it is done 
differently over there. Before I can form an opinion I need more information

Barry's Role Model perception is skewed by his youth.

In the 50's and 60's,CQWW mailed a book to contest entrants with all scores
and winners.  WAE was ok too!
Now they are the best, along with the Russia Contest.
It's all changing quickly.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] Operating Chair Idea
Message-ID: <001101c2696e$23b552c0$3ea0cad5@host>

I needed a different operating chair - the old typist's chair I used wasn't
really comfortable for long periods. No spare money to buy a new one... Then
an idea occurred - car seats can be very comfortable, and I had a few spare
in a couple of old cars on the property. So I removed one of the seats,
found its centre of gravity by balancing the seat over a thin piece of 2"x1"
wood strip whilst sitting on it, then welded a couple of 9"x2"x1/4" strips
to the base. These were bolted to the old typist chair's swivel base, and
hey presto, a brand new operating chair, very comfortable, and still with
it's reclining back and headrest.

If you are going to try this, there's one area that can be critical - the
angle of the seat to the ground. If you look at the base of the seat on most
chairs, i.e. the actual surface you sit on, it is generally parallel to the
floor. However some car seats are not parallel, but tilt up at the front.
You will need to correct this otherwise the front of the base will push up
on the back of your thighs, which isn't comfortable over long periods.

Typist's chair bases are very handy, for their wheels and swivel facilities,
but if you don't mind a fixed chair, then a simple set of legs for your old
car seat could be made out of a variety of materials, such as wood, rebar,
tube, or box-section. If you've got a tidier yard than mine, and don't have
old cars gently rusting back to nature, your local car-dismantler will
probably be able to provide a variety of seats for small amounts of money.

If you do have money to spare, the most incredible operating chair is 
the Herman MIller Aeron. It's also dispalted as artwork in the MOMA. 
See http://www.hermanmiller.com/CDA/product/0,1469,c201-pss1-
p8,00.html

They are frequently available used on Ebay, as a lot of liquidated 
dotcom companies bought them for their employees.

I've never had a sore butt or numb leg after a weekend of contesting 
using an Aeron. In the past, I've switched back and forth between 3 or 4 
charis thourghout the weekend, and even stood for a while.

eligible, and blank paper logs, at no charge to the participant, of
course. Now, it's all web based, with instant confirmation of
submitted logs, high claimed scores, etc.

Hello Hrle ,
Some of your statements are really correct, but you extremely
exaggerated the situation in the Ukraine. :-)
Your conception is really overdone. I guess it is in fact not
far away from croatian. :-)
Most of our active contesters do have the Internet, clasters, etc.
Most of us use good equipment, good antennas, stacks, etc.
May be some stations are in poor conditions, but please do not
extend it on all of our contesters and lay it on thick.
CU in the contests.

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.

You know Vlad, you are right. In East Europe MOST of the active contesters
run good stations, having internet, and probably save some additional money
for the DXpeditions.
Why do we have to worry about those little tiny signals?! They're probably
just misserable loosers that havent achieved anything in their lifes.
Who cares about them!
CQ Magazine is money making magazine, why do we expect them to sponsor the
CQWW contest? After all it's just one of the lines written in the invitation
(rules). Anybody even read the rules? Nah...

Thank you for showing me that everything is so great on this world and that
sometimes even the little things cant help.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] CQ WW SSB CONTEST - OP NEEDED
Message-ID: <3D9A76C1.91303DA8@dayton.net>

We have lost one of the ops planning to travel to Costa Rica for the
TI5N entry as a multi-multi station in the CQ WW SSB contest.  This was
due to business meetings scheduled for Sunday of the contest and Monday
that could nt be rescheduled.

We would like to replace this op.  Hopefully we can find someone with
some good contest experience and capable of running pile ups.
Consideration will be given to one with low experience but may have
mostly all assignments in slow periods.  An op could demonstrate ability
by ops before the contest.

Money matters - for a six night stay the cost is $500 which covers bed,
meals, some beverages, airport transfer and equipment use.  Plan approx.
$25 exit fee and  and funds for touring, gifts,  etc.  Group cost will
be in the $30 range.  The $500 is adjusted $75 for each day more or -$75
for a each day less.

The main body of ops will arrive on Wed. Oct. 23 and depart on Tue. Oct.
29.

Airfare - I only have information from Dayton and as of Sunday, a good
fare was in the $530 range.  Most major airlines have non stop flights
from some hubs.

The stations will include 756Pro's, 940's and a mix of several other
models.  As planned each band will have its own amp and most will have a
selection of antenna.  Logging will be with WriteLog.

For more information on the station and host, try:

http://www.qsl.net/ti5kd/contest.htm

For more info on Costa Rica just try a search with Costa Rica and you
should get a number of travel and related pages.

For anyone who would like to discuss this further, please call me at
937-434-9616.

Message-ID: <20021002124010.27008.qmail@web13306.mail.yahoo.com>

First, let me state that I don't have as great a
station as many do, but I have one that works for
me. I either operate as part of the M/M world or
I do it as a SO.

I agree with Vladimir! The key, here, is rather
than make distinctions about the level of
resources a station may or may not have available
one should emphasize that it is what you DO with
what you have that matters.

The 'little gun' or 'popgun' station of limited
resources works at pefecting skills and abilities
to achieve some kind of goal for themselves. 

To call someone who has limited resources (as
Hrvoje puts it "...those little tiny signals 
...hey're probably just misserable losers that
havent achieved anything in their lifes. Who
cares about them!') those kinds of perjorative
terms only serves to further divide our group.

Trust me.. and you can verify this with ANY
contest op who is seriusly looking for a good
score..  

ANY station who is competitive in a contest
SEEKS, WANTS, and DESIRES as many of those 'tiny
signals' as they can get. As we say. 'Q's Is
Points!' It doesn't matter what class of station
you may have.. trust me. If I'm operating in a
contest, I want every Q I can get. Loud, weak,
whatever. No station who is active in the contest
shares the view that a 'tiny signal' is worthless
or indicative of an operator/owner that is a
'loser'. Just the opposite! 

Many times I've struggled for minutes to pull a
'tiny signal' out of the noise becuase I WANTED
to make the Q. Regardless of whetheror not it was
a mult.. 'Q's Is Points!'  

For all you know,that 'tiny signal' may be a
skilled QRP enthusiast of great resources trying
out a milliwatt transmitter into a dipole to see
how it works.  Blanket, perjorative statements
add nothing to the debate.

One thing to remember is this.. there are MORE
multi-multi stations looking for ops than you may
know about. I can't speak for European folks, but
I know here in the States EVERY M/M wants to have
new blood coming in to train and have for thier
station. I would have to bet that the European
guys and other Countries are the same way. The
geographical limitations and reduced station
numberes may necessitate differnt methods of
contact, training, and assilimation of folks, but
there is NEVER a shortage of need for ops.

Quite a few active constesters do not use
Internet, clusters, or other assistances. They
like being unassisted in their efforts. They may
submit thier logs via the Internet or by mail,
but they don't use it themselves.

Rather than case perjorative words which tend to
divide our community of contest aficiandos.. why
not attempt to encourage them to operate and
plant a few seeds?

Just one ham's opinion. Feel free to fire back.

Cancel your subscription and wait to see the results on
the web.  Seems pretty simplistic to me.

BTW what the hell is the purpose of this thread anyway?
What does it add to contesting?  Why don't you folks
who prefer to bash people/organizations/things start a
reflector and have at it.  But in the meantime please cut
the crap if you don't have something to add to the hobby.
Yeah, I have a delete key but frankly my finger is sore from pushing it so
much when I read emails on this reflector.  I believe there is some protocol
for the type
of messages that are permitted isn't there?
And, yes again, I will unsubscribe very soon if the nonsense continues - as
will - I'm sure many others.

IMHO

Any idea why RW2F won plaque for Europe Multioperator Unlimited in

I've just downloaded PDF file...
In WEB Scores, RW2F is multi/single, not multi/multi or UNLIMITED??

Or, I've missed something?...

Best I can tell, Oceania stations need prefixes as mults.
I've not been able to verify this with total confidence.

I've poked about lots of Oceania sites and still am not
100 pct satisfied that my interpretation is correct.

If you need prefixes, I'll be in your contest signing
NG6O, a club call. If I don't receive confirmation thsat
prefixis are meainigful to OC stations, I'll still be there
signing my REAL call K6KM.

Wot's up mates?

Hello!

It seems that I will be on a business visit in Nice during the 
week before CQ WW CW. I am looking for a QTH that I could guest 
operate for example on 21 MHz single band in CQ WW CW. Do you

Subject: [CQ-Contest] 1 Week until the 45th Annual Pa QSO Party
Message-ID: <01c301c26c00$525b2520$03010a0a@office1>

Warm up this weekend with the Ca QSO Party -- and then come out next week
for the 45th Annual Pennsylvania QSO Party, sponsored by the Nittany Amateur
Radio Club, will take place October 12th & 13th.  Look for activity from all
67 PA counties; from an assortment of portables, mobile & rover stations;
from special event stations; and from stations sitting on county lines.

While much of the activity will be on 80 and 40 meters, you will find
stations to work on all bands, and all are welcome!  For the in-state
participants, the multipliers are the total number of counties AND the
ARRL/RAC Sections (including 1 for DX), so all stations everywhere are
eagerly sought.

One of the unique things of this contest is the Special Event Bonus
station -- a different one every year, this station not only highlights the
sponsoring club or organization, but is worth 200 points per QSO.  This
year's Special Event Station is W3FRC (operating from the K3ANS
superstation), highlighting the 75th Anniversary of the Frankford Radio
Club.  The FRC is offering their own set of awards during their anniversary
year, so if you're looking for FRC members to work for these, the Pa QSO
Party gives you a perfect opportunity to do so!

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

...and look for me during the contest weekend.  Due to some scheduling
concerns, I will probably be operating my home station.  But look for my
club's two club stations, N3SH/3 Clarion/Forest County Line, or WA3SH/3
Westmoreland/Somerset County Line; and for club member N3ZNI (with KB3GOT) &
former member N3WAV running around mobile throughout the 33 counties of
Western PA.

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 one last one right before the contest.

Yes, mate, mulipliers are indeed different prefixes for both OC and 
non-OC stations.
And you count the same prefix on two different bands as two multipliers, 
unlike WPX contest.

Visit International Contest Calendar (www.vk4dx.net) for more info.

==>ARRL SURVEYING MEMBERSHIP ON FUTURE CONTINUING EDUCATION COURSE
PREFERENCES

The ARRL is surveying its membership regarding which future on-line ARRL
Certification and Continuing Education (C-CE) courses hams would be most
likely to take. The list of possibilities ranges from antennas to VHF 
and UHF operation. The Web-based survey 
<http://www.arrl.org/members-only/cce/ccesurv.html> is now open for 
input. The survey period will end October 27.

"The C-CE program has been very successful," said C-CE Program 
Coordinator Howard Robins, W1HSR, who notes that thousands of hams have 
registered for ARRL's on-line classes since the C-CE program began in 
late 2000. The C-CE program's first offering--selected as a result of 
membership input--was the Level I Amateur Radio Emergency Communications 
course (EC-001). The League now offers three levels in emergency 
communications and expanded course offerings to include Antenna 
Modeling, HF Digital Communication and Satellite Communication.

"Our plans are to make several additional courses available in 2003,"
Robins said. "The survey results will guide the C-CE program in 
providing courses of demonstrated interest to ARRL members."

Members will be asked to rank the various possibilities in terms of the
likelihood that they would take the course if it were offered. The list
includes Antennas 101, Basic Electronics, Trouble Shooting, Test
Equipment, Radio Propagation, VHF and UHF Beyond the Repeater and
Contesting 101.

To learn more, visit the ARRL Certification and Continuing Education Web
page <http://www.arrl.org/cce> and the C-CE Links found there. For more
information, contact Certification and Continuing Education Program
Coordinator Howard Robins, W1HSR, hrobins@arrl.org.


"Contesting 101" could be interesting!!

Message-ID: <001401c26db5$d1944ae0$37096cd8@jallen>

I would like to apologize for the dupes during CQP to the many that I hit
twice.

My Omni-V does not talk to the software, and I had trouble remembering to
switch the band and mode in the software so not only were there dupes, but
some of my logging will be in error.

Don't worry, I am sure that you will get credit for your QSOs...

I have sent a note in with the CQP log, asking the checkers to assign errors
of band and mode to my log, treating your logs as correct.  I know of only
one QSO that disappeared from my log (a 20 meter QSO with KA6BIM), and
another QSO that wanted to be the same number as the one that preceded it
for some unknown reason.

The cause of all of this is being addressed.... The microcontroller in my
Omni-V is being updated to Version V.9 and will be able in the future to
communicate with the software.  I am only one component short, a hex
inverter, 7417 chip.  My local Radio Shack does not carry them.  Does anyone
know of a supplier with no minimum order fee for a single chip... I hate to
pay $20 for one IC.

Thanks for your patience with me during CQP.

Conditions to/from YT were the PITS!   I think that the combined QSO counts
of VY1JA and VY1MB was something less than 350 QSOs.  The challenge of
propagation makes it interesting.  I love contesting anyway!

Message-ID: <012a01c26e22$f16a1580$0100007f@adams.net>

Top Ten reasons to work the ILLINOIS QSO PARTY on October 20:

10) Warm up for Sweepstakes.  Sunday evening rate the way SS would *like* to
be!

9) Only eight hours.  Doesn't alienate family.

8) Starts at 1800Z.  Lets you go to church first.  Pray for "sweep".  See
number 6.

7) You worked CQP and didn't get a "sweep".  Frustrated.

6) You worked CQP and *did* get a "sweep".  Prove you can do twice as well
(102 counties in IL).

5) Reward the 12-15 mobiles that will be crossing the state.

4) Ferret out a county-line portable sitting in a corn field (explaining to
sheriff why he's there....)

3) Shock a first-time in-state IQPer with his very own pileup.

2) Qualify for a certificate or a "Taste of Illinois" award (we produce
honey here, not salmon....)

1) Sunday afternoon/evening contest stimulates brain --- jumpstart for
Monday morning.

ARRL VHF/UHF Contesting and Awards Survey

NEWINGTON, CT -- October 7, 2002 

With a higher proportion of VHF-only licensees than ever before, one might 
expect that VHF/UHF contesting would be experiencing a surge in popularity. To 
the contrary, while the total QSOs being made in the multi-band contests seems 
steady, the number of logs - and thus the number of serious participants - has 
fallen off considerably since 1996. This has led the ARRL to ask you for your 
thoughts on why this might be happening and how to best address and reverse the 
trend. We'd also like to hear from you about the ARRL VHF/UHF awards program in 
general. 


The survey is the result of a request from the ARRL Board to look into ways to 
increase participation. It is being sent to a random sample of regular 
top-scorers and average participants, regardless of their score, plus clubs 
that regularly participate in VHF/UHF club competitions. Our interest is in 
gathering information we can use to improve the participation and quality of 
both the various ARRL VHF/UHF contests and the ARRL VHF/UHF awards programs. 
The detail and quality of information in your answers is especially important 
to us. 


The Survey - 

The survey is organized into several areas of inquiry. The first group deals 
exclusively with contesting: 

Existing contests - how can their formats, rules, or reporting be improved such 
that activity and log submissions are increased? This survey refers to the 
following ARRL sponsored contests: January VHF Sweepstakes, June & September 
VHF QSO Parties, August UHF Contest, 10 GHz and Up competition, and the Oct/Nov 
EME Contest 

New contest formats - are there new formats that would be attractive to the 
existing contest community? 

New participants - what improvements or additions to VHF/UHF contesting would 
attract more operators to the sport? How can these operators be reached? 


A second area of interest is the ARRL VHF/UHF awards program and increasing the 
level of interest and participation. The existing awards such as VUCC, WAS, and 
DXCC, are derivatives of the HF awards program. There is some concern that 
these awards either have too high an initial qualification level or may be 
missing some interests of VHF/UHF operators. There are two groups of questions: 

Existing awards - how can their rules or categories might be improved so that 
more activity is encouraged? 

New awards - are there new award programs that would be attractive to VHF/UHF 
operators? 
Responding 


Each topic has a series of questions related to either VHF/UHF contesting or 
awards. Please select the answer that best matches your position or situation. 
Please feel free to extend your remarks (use additional pages if necessary). 
Your detailed comments are very important. 

The survey is downloadable as an Adobe Acrobat file on the web at 
http://www.arrl.org/contests/announcements/vhf-survey.pdf 

It should be completed and returned by regular mail to: VHF/UHF Survey, attn: 
Wayne Mills, N7NG, ARRL, 225 Main St, Newington CT 06111. We would like to have 
the returned surveys by October 31st. You may copy the blank survey and 
distribute it to other amateurs, particularly to operators that may not be 
active in VHF/UHF contesting now. A summary of the results will be available in 
the future. 

Thanks and 73

Subject: [CQ-Contest] W6UFT in CQP02 (long de W1HIJ)
Message-ID: <f6.22b30d5a.2ad34665@aol.com>

Hi all,

Thought I'd share some of the experience in the weekend's contest. This is 
the first time I've done CQP seriously since 99 and since we're on "firsts" I 
thought I'd go all the way. So, the radio was a new one (Yaesu FT897); I was 
using a new version of TRLog; this was the first time I'd ever done a 
signifcant effort with QRP; and it was the first major effort from the new 
QTH in Upland with the first contest using the Butternut HF6V which is 
installed on the roof.

So here's the station setup:

Yaesu FT897 running at 5W powered by an Astron supply. Antenna is a Butternut 
HF6V mounted on the roof with its base about 28 feet above ground. One radial 
each for 40, 30, 20, and 10, with a single "radial" made of 3 inch wide 
copper foil, 50 feet long that stands in for 80 meters. The computer is a 100 
MHz Dell laptop interfaced to the radio for both radio control and for 
keying. Software is version 6.70 (latest) of TRLog. There's a second computer 
that usually is connected to the internet for real time propagation numbers 
(flux updated every minute), but I don't bother with packet since I find it 
more of a distraction than anything else.

I got my hands on the new radio on Wednesday before the contest and spent 
that evening and Thursday evening figuring out its quirks and setting up the 
menu options (there are 91 of them!) to suit my style. I also got the latest 
version of TRLog (v6.70) on Thursday, so I spent a bit of time that evening 
checking out any new options, programming the CW memories and figuring out 
the interface between the computer and the radio. (Since the 897 is so new, 
Tree hasn't seen one yet, but the interface is the same as the FT817, more or 
less).

Saturday AM I had to take Emily (KF6SGV) to the airport for a trip to the 
east coast and I was back home about 0800, rarin' to go. The solar numbers 
were "OK", but with the flux between 150 and 160, a planetary A that was at 
40 (with a K of 4) until 21Z on Saturday, dropping to 21 for the rest of the 
weekend, and a K that varied between 2 and 3, I knew it was gg to be a bit of 
a struggle.

Conversations on the QRP issue with a few people in the week before the 
contest had me convinced that I'd spend most of my time doing S&P, and I 
wondered how well my concentration would hold up since I've become "rate 
addicted". As it turns out, what everyone says about QRP being a mental game 
is exactly right. Think that you can run and you can. Think that you're 
"weak" and you will be. The only differences I found between QRP and QRO 
were: be prepared to call several times if you're trying to get through to a 
desirable mult; and don't even think about trying to hold a frequency against 
competition. There were several times when I'd be running (well, "walking" is 
more like it) and someone would appear on or within a couple of hundred hertz 
of me. Usually it was the likes of N6O who undoubtedly simply couldn't hear 
me back scatter or short skip. The solution? --- move, and move now; staying 
only wastes time and raises blood pressure. 

I'd done some research and decided on a goal of 75,000 points for the 
weekend. The number was chosen to give me a margin of a few thousand over the 
score needed to capture the 2nd place slot for all-time QRP records (1996 
thru 2001) which was 72,748 set by N6WS in 99. There was no way with my 
antenna set up that I could challenge N6MU's record of 144K set in 00.

So I started on 15 CW and had a pretty decent hour of 55 with 30 mults. 
Around 17Z I went to 10 CW in the hopes that it might be usable (even with a 
poor A & K) but the result was a second hour with only 30 Q's in the log. 
Back to 15 CW at 18Z. Still gg pretty well and I put 32 Q's in the log in 
about 35 minutes ... Then the totally unexpected happened ... 

I heard a man's voice saying "Hello?" or something similar. Remember, I'm 
here alone in the house. Thinking it's a neighbor (the back door to the patio 
is open), I call out "Just a minute, I'll be right there" and untangle myself 
from headphones and various coffee mugs and step out into the hall ... and 
what do I see? HOLY HANDCUFFS, BATMAN!! It's a San Bernardino County 
Sheriff's Deputy, 9mm drawn and pointing my way!

Well, my mama didn't raise no fool! I know when to freeze.
 
"Hands up", he says ... I do and right now. 
"Lift your tee shirt", he says. (I'm wearing a long Chicago Bears shirt 
that's outside my jeans) 
"With which hand?" I ask, not wanting to make a wrong move. 
"Doesn't matter" ... I comply. 
"Turn around" I do. 

Satisfied that I'm not armed, the 9mm goes back into the holster. WHEW! Then 
we get on to matters of ID and the fact that I actually live here.

This is the ultimate in penalty for RFI. Turns out that on 10 meters, somehow 
even 5 watts was enough to turn on the alarm system, and THEN tell the 
monitoring company that the garage door had been opened (it hadn't). They had 
called, but I couldn't get to the phone fast enough during my 10M adventure. 
Naturally they aren't going to leave a message (the bad guys hate to be 
interrupted with phone calls), so when I checked the machine and it was a 
hang up, I just thought it was the usual solicitor. The alarm company also 
has my cell phone number and they called that too, but of course I had turned 
it off because who wants to be interrupted with calls during a contest?

Naturally, my next call was to the alarm company to tell them to ignore any 
alarms for the next 30 hours. "I'm testing some special communications 
equipment" I tell them. Yeah right!!!

But in the best tradition of Murphy, I "just deal with it" and get back to 
15M. Albeit I had now lost a half an hour of prime time.

So now it's a matter of slugging it out on 15. It sort of dries up and I go 
up to 15 SSB at about 1930Z and spend a frustrating hour or so making 25 Q's. 
 I do pick up three new mults including NH and VE1, so it's not a total loss. 
Back to 15 CW, and a move to 20CW at 2130Z. I stay on 20 for an hour and pick 
up 4 more mults including AZ and NM on short skip.

Overall rate is not great. But then I don't really expect it to be. Running 5 
watts to a vertical just "ain't the same" as 1500 watts to a log periodic at 
130 feet!

Back to 15 CW at 2230 ... kinda worked out it seems, 10 CW ten minutes later 
for few Q's then 20 SSB for some S&P. Talk about an exercise in futility ... 
way too many big guys for me to be heard. 20 CW is a bit better, 18 Q's in 15 
minutes. I skip to 15 CW to see if it's still there, one Q, it's not. 15 SSB, 
NADA -- one mult and 5 Q's.

Down to 20 CW at 00Z ... Ah, that's better ... Stay there for 90 minutes and 
add 70 Q's and 1 mult. Not a barn burner, but better than I expected given 
the station setup.

But now, the stomach wins out. Time for something to eat. So I take an hour 
off and settle down to some really good microwaved stuff!  :>)

Back on at 0230Z. Listen to 20 CW ... pretty much gone. Up to 40 CW, my 
favorite band. However, this is the first time that I've really tried to 
exercise this antenna on 40 and I really don't know how it's going to play. I 
stay on 40 for a bit over 2 hours and pick up another 90 odd Q's. So I'm 
averaging about 40 per hour. Since my "goal planning" said I need to average 
around 26 or 27 per hour for 20 hours, I'm satisfied. In addition, I pick up 
two new mults, VE4 and VE8 (thanks to J, VY1JA for hearing me and calling 
in!) At 05Z I work WC7S in WY and decide to call it a day.

At bedtime then, I'm at 58.5K points with 400 Q's and 51 mults, substantially 
ahead of the plan to reach my goal.

Up again at 13Z and on the air at 1320. Now comes the slog ... As a quick 
summary here are Score, Q's and mults at the beginning of each hour:

14Z     61880     415/52 (got UT)
15Z     67652     453/52
16Z     69524     465/52
17Z     71292     482/52
18Z     73476     497/52
19Z     77327     516/53 (got ND)
20Z     84425     545/55 (RI and finally MS)

I decided to quit at this point. Had just about 20 hours in and only two more 
hours left anyway.

Final breakdown was:

The end result??

1. More fun than I've had in a contest in a long while (except for FD in 
Puerto Rico, but that's another whole story) and it re-energized my interest 
in "solo" contesting.

2. The FT897 worked better than I expected. I'm glad that I bought one.

3. As always I discovered some things about the station and a new set up that 
need fixing, but that's always one of the side benefits.

4. I achieved my point goal (and then some). But I got beaten out of the 2nd 
place all time QRP score by Wes, W3SE who also did QRP and posted a great 
102K points. That's OK. If I'm going to get beat, I'm glad that it's by a 
friend and a co-operator at N6ME.

Thanks to everyone for all the Q's. It was a blast!!

Subject: [CQ-Contest] M/2 in CQWW - Re Additional multipliers stations
Message-ID: <008501c26e4f$416672a0$c01238d4@wally>

Hi,

Since we have been discussing the question about additional transmitting 
multiplier stations in M/2 Category in CQWW 2002 with my friend LZ2UU I have 
sent a question to Bob K3EST.
The answer was - stations in M/2 can only use additional RX multiplier finding 
stations which are NOT allowed to transmitt. Only two running stations are 
allowed to transmit at any given moment.
I am posting this since this is not well defined in the rules for 2002 and 
different assumptions are possible ( saw similar comment from US on the survey 
about M/2 category on www.contesting.com).

Last year I operated /7 from Jackson Hole, WY during CW SS.
I did not have a good location as the noise level was high.

Some one on this list sent me email last year after the contest
noting they could help me this year.  Sorry to say that after
several computer replacements and failures I no longer have
that information.  If you sent me email last year, I'd appreciate
a ping so that I can get started for this years /7 operation from WY.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] JARTS RTTY Contest October 19-20
Message-ID: <004d01c26e6d$4b35c1a0$6401a8c0@don>

I just wanted to remind everyone that the JARTS (Japanese Amateur Radio
Teleprinter Society) World-Wide RTTY Contest is being held on October 19 &20.

This will be the 11th annual JARTS contest.  This is a very fun RTTY contest and
one of my favorites.  There is a lot of activity.  Last year the top 13 
contestants made
over 900 QSO's.

The exchange is a simple RST and AGE.

Official rules in English at http://www.edsoftz.com/JARTS/2002/rules2002.html.
Official rules in Japanese at http://www.edsoftz.com/JARTS/2002/rules2002j.html.

If you do not already have contest software for this contest, the author of 
MMTTY
(which is the best RTTY decoder available for free in my opinion) has written a 
new
program called MMJARTS which is specifically written for this contest and uses 
MMTTY with a sound card.  It's available at http://www.qsl.net/mmhamsoft/.

For WriteLog users, I've placed contest message examples on my WriteLog website 
at:
http://www.geocities.com/writelog/.

For those that wish to get started on RTTY, please refer to my "Getting Started 
on RTTY"
tutorial at http://www.aa5au.com/rtty/.  This tutorial is geared toward using 
MMTTY as
the program to get you started on RTTY.

I'm happy to help anyone who wishes to get started on RTTY.  However, I have to
warn that I'm very busy in my regular job trying to re-establish communications 
to the
oil & gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico after Hurricane Lili.  I hope to have 
this stabilized by
next week and plan on taking a few days off before the contest to recuperate.

I'm very much looking forward to this year's JARTS contest.  I hope you can 
join us!

My original destination has been undergoing a QSY and a major upgrade and
won't be ready 'til ARRL DX, so I'm scouting for something to hold me over;)

Probably stateside since that's what I was planning on $$-wise to begin
with. I do enjoy CW, but phone is the preference whenever I'm going to a
station I've not been to before, or using software I've never used before.

I've got feelers out locally (Pacific NW), but haven't heard anything yet.
I've got time blocked out for both modes, but can probably only *travel* for
one or the other, not both.

I'm no K1AR or N6TR, but nobody's ever kicked me out of a chair, either:).
Recent gigs have included NQ4I, J6DX/J68ZM, W7RM, N6TR, K7AW.

I've always used TR, save for one experience with CT during WW PHONE last
year. I've been an apartment dweller for years, the only equip I could bring
would be a pair of Heils and an old laptop. The last rig I owned was a C
Line which I sold to K7NT a few years ago;)

If anyone has a spot for an upper middle level appliance operator kind of
guy.. let me know;)

*Oh yeah.. ya probably don't want me on the low bands. Very little
experience there;)

Are you...

      for hours? 
--> 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
