That was fun, even though dinner guests arrived and I only had 40 odd minutes
to operate. Made an even 50 QSOs. How about a weekday evening next time with
a 0100 start for West Coasters getting home from work. How about an earlier
start Sunday. 73. Ken, AB6FO

Had a great time...actually spent more time that afternoon doing antenna
work than operating the contest. It was nice that people actually used 40m
this time, as 20 started to die around 1:30 Z.
	Only got one Butthead. The most popular/mutated name seemed to be 
Curly/Curley...several times both myself and the station I worked both had
the name Curl(e)y. I worked the original Curly...I wonder where the others
came from?
	Total up to 118 from 99 last time...will send log as soon as I finish
typing it into the computer. CU in the CW SS!

Ha - I got Butthead for someone's #1 so I know who started it...
Curl(e)y and Linda were the most popular names I got, I never
heard my own come back except once as Derk - at least I didn't
get transmuted to Nerk this time.  Derrick stayed around OK, 
though, and the original owner of that name gave me 11 Qs, the
same as Tree did, and 10 from AA6KX.

Was Ind a real name, or was that someone mixing up name/state?

I think I heard G4BUO hanging around on 40m - Trey was going to
be visiting him before next weekend.  Suspicious?

It occurred to me that if I sent "Ed" every time I worked someone,
everyone would end up sending Ed to everyone else (except the people 
I never worked - I counted 25 distinct calls this time).  It's scary
to think that you have the power to introduce a virus in this way.  Of 
course, you'd be disqualified, but this is probably the only contest
where one person has this much influence.   Not that I'd ever do a
thing like that, no siree, heh heh.

Thanks to all for the Qs - nominally 125 this time, up from 105 last
time around.  Tree sounded like the winner from the start - I got #134 
from him with 15 mins still to go.

Regarding your questions about how to feed two beams together:

The purists will say that you need some matching lines to keep the 
impedance OK when feeding both antennas together.  I won 4 SS contests by 
using "tee" connectors to tie NE and West beams together!  Sometimes the 
SWR doesn't react well, but if the antennas have good SWR to start with, 
it seems to work OK with both combined.

Since you are not stacking for gain, just feeding two antennas for 
coverage, don't worry about coax lengths.  Just do it!

With the CQ WW Phone only days away, anyone like to give their 
predictions for what will happen?

I see K1AR at K1EA leading a YCCC sweep of the top 5 spots in Single Op.

I see 10 meters being good enough for some nice country totals but not 
the mega QSO numbers of previous years.  The spoils will go to the ops 
who can keep an eye on the band while doing something else.

We are organizing a YCCC "team" entry.  Any other clubs doing the same?

A USA multi-multi will make 5BDXCC.  The low bands are going to be too 
good not to!  How close can they come to 6BDXCC??!  Maybe the PJ1 or EA9 

Good luck all around!

Hi John...I thought that someone might catch that. It took a lot of restraint 
not to just send BUTTHEAD and leave it .... .. The worst that could happen is
that Tree would disqualify me, but with a 30 minute late start I was not going
to "win" anyway (just what do you win if you win?). Bragging rights, I suppose.
You can sure tell that the MUF is sagging - 20 was rather flaky with most of
the W6s skipping over me again. Final score of 91 for 90 minutes of operation.
I had a QSO with Trey (he was at F6BEE's contest station). He says to be sure
and look for EA9UK next weekend. Good luck CQWW.

Subject: Phasing Dissimilar Antennas
Message-ID: <9310251432.AA28101 at>

My intuition tells me that your two dissimilar yagis will work as
independent antennas provided that 1) The impedance is
the same at the T-connector, so that the power is split equally, and
2) The antennas are pointed in VERY different directions, such that
the pattern of antenna 1 is down -20 to -30 dB in the direction that
antenna 2 is pointed in.  In this case, you won't have to worry about
the effect of constructive or destructive interference caused by the
different phase relationships between the yagis.  If you try pointing
both antennas in the same direction, all bets are off - you now have
to account for the phase relationships at the antenna feedpoint.

Of course, unless you use the OH2BH method, you will be putting 3 dB less
signal into each antenna than if you fed them separately.

Message-ID: <9310251634.AA11056 at>

This is the last file I'll send out before the contest.  It has the
following differences from the version dated 18 October 1993:

25 Oct 1993:    * Added the following Antarctic stations: CE9AP(13), CE9OH(13),
                  CE9SAC(13), CE9SDJ(13), DP0GVN(38), IA/I3JPA(30) and LU4ZS(13).
                * Changed name of Germany to Fed. Rep. of Germany. (AK1J)
                * Removed TO from prefix list for France.  These stations are
                  Departements d`Outre-Mer and Territoires d'Outre-Mer, that
                  is, all overseas French territories.  If you work a TO station,
                  make sure to get the QTH! (F5JTL)
                * Added GM4CAQ to list of GM/Shetlands stations. (GM0ECO)
                * Changed default CQ zone of 4K4 from 19 to 18.  Make sure to
                  ask any 4K4 station you work what zone they are in. (N2AA)
                * Added UX to prefix list for Ukraine.  Removed UX2 prefix from
                  Kaliningrad (UA2), UX8, UX9 and UX0 prefixes from Asiatic RSFSR
                  (UA9) and UX1N prefix from Karelo-Finish Republic (UN1). (NT2X)
                * Changed VP8GAV from Antarctica to S. Georgia.

GL in the 'test!

Subject: FAQ:  How to obtain CTY files for CT
Message-ID: <9310251702.AA13184 at>

[NOTE:  latest CTY files are dated 10/25/93]

Here are a number of sources for the CTY files for CT.  The CTY files should
only be used by REGISTERED users of CT - if you are not currently a
REGISTERED user, see the end of this message for information on how to
obtain CT.

The CTY files I maintain are:

	IARU.CTY 	for IARU HF Championship

In addition, I also try to keep CTYHDG.PRE updated so that you can use the
CTYHDG program to put beam headings right into your .CTY files.

You can obtain the latest files by:

1.  Anonymous FTP

2.  Telephone BBS

	K1EA:	508-460-8877	(download CTY.EXE, or update CT)
	W6GO:	916-992-0923	(download CTY.ZIP)


	I post updated CTY files to CQ-CONTEST at TGV.COM usually starting
	one month before the major DX contests (CQWW, ARRL, IARU HF
	Championship, WAE).

4.  US MAIL (as a last resort)

	Send $1.00 and a blank formatted diskette to:

		Jim Reisert AD1C
		181 Littleton Road #320
		Chelmsford, MA  01824-2662

To obtain CT (latest version is 8.44), contact:

        K1EA Software
        A Division of Harvard Radio, Inc.
        5 Mount Royal Avenue
        Marlborough, MA  01752-9650

If you have any questions, comments or corrections to the CTY files, you can
send a message to me at "reisert at" or on PacketCluster(tm) to
"AD1C > NO1A"

Subject: CQWW Contest Ops needed....
Message-ID: <9310251711.AA11357 at>

The Aspen Contest Club has lost a couple of our usual operators 
due to various unforseen problems.  Anyone interested and
can get to Colorado for this weekend's contest to operate 
would be appreciated by the group.  

Contact George Noyes, W1XE if you're interested for further
information and logistics....

The contest station is located near Snowmass (Aspen), Colorado.
Transportation can be arranged from Denver or Aspen.
