Hi all, When XP SP2 came out I upgraded and had lots of unexplained crashes. On advice of Microsoft, I reverted back to SP1. Now that MS will be terminating support for SP1 in the near future, I'm th

In the latest update of the RUFZ Toplist, YT7AW is the first one to break 200 WPM (1097 PARIS = 219 WPM)! For those of you who were at my presentation at the Contest Forum at Dayton, you may recall h

I recall reading somewhere that an automatic tuner should never be used in front of bandpass filters and amps, too, as very high voltages can be generated as the tuner spins its wheels. FWIW, in 20 y

I look forward to reviewing this, Randy. I usually record the CW DX contests then go back and review them with the UBNs. What I've noticed is about 50% of my U/B calls were copied correctly by me, as

Nick, I agree with you. In a contest like CQWW CW, 30 seconds is an eternity and an unreasonable amount of time to listen to a freq. Do that, and you'll hear someone else grab it first. I always list

Pete, I disagree. While there certainly are no discrete quanta of DX station layers, there's no question that layers of stations are only workable when the path loss is less than x. As an example, lo

It is very rare to see a disqualification in CQWW results. Do they simply reclassify stations to the "correct" category or simply not publish their scores in the results? A listing with explanation w

Just like using a second radio, using packet is a skill. If used properly, it CAN be an advantage. If used improperly (just like a second radio can kill your run rate) it most certainly can be a detr
