I guess that you would have to disqualify 40% of this team because they operated
from doesn't seem fair to the rest of us, does it???

  K2MM/KI3V report that 146.58 is coordinated for PacketCluster use in 
  the SF Bay area/northern Nevada.

An announcement of suggested FM times/freqs should include something 
along the lines of "if these frequencies are not recognized voice simplex 
frequencies in your area, try the next lower coordinated voice 
frequency".  This would also address areas with 20 KHz spacings where (I 
assume) the standard frequencies would be 146.42 or .44.

Or we could just keep 146.58 as a suggested frequency, and put the word 
out in the SSTV community.  They could have a ball operating a contest 
that would piss off the folks that think they own that frequency.  As for 
the contesters, could they find an OO in their ranks to send out notices 
to the SSTV turned contest fiend crowd?

Message-ID: <9412092044.AA07449 at>


I need to find out mailing address or QSL manager for the following
stations.  After the CQ-WW CW contest, I checked latest 1995 Callbook, 
DX Bulletin, DX Magazine, QRZ DX, DX Newsletter, QSL Info-Server on
INTERNET, and Packet Cluster, but could not find any information
about the following stations.  If anyone can help me out, I will be
really grateful.


For the following two stations, I found their QSL Managers, but
could not find the mailing addresses of these QSL Managers:

OM8A via OM3RM

Thank you very much!!!

Rich, I never got an OO report as a novice, but my 7179 XTAL got me some
mail from the FCC in Washington state!  I didn't go near 40mtrs for some
time after that,HI!  1970, I believe, A Globe Chief Deluxe and a

Of course I've had this happen to me. I find it most commonly occuring on 
40 SSB where multiple DX stations may be using the same listening freq 
without knowing it.
I remember specifically this happening with GW8GT on 40 SSB, telling me I 
was a dupe. I told him I3xxx was using the same listening freq and that's 
who I worked. Then he worked me "again."
If someone tells me I'm a dupe, but he's not in my log, I explain that to 
him. Most of the time, he'll then work me. But there are the occasional 
pig-headed types who won't (or maybe don't understand enough English). It 
that case, they're just being stupid - cuz if he ain't in my log, I ain't 
in his! Just hope it's not a new mult...

Sorry for my previous posting about QSL information to this group.
Many of you reminded me that this is not a right place to ask such
a question.  I apologize for my not being careful.

Good for Jim Stahl to recognize the positive aspect of FM use in
VHF/UHF contests! As for those who "abhor" FM simplex (not ALL
weak-signal fans, by the way), well...just don't use it.

I need a sturdy, small, lightweight TNC I can take along with an HT and 
laptop so I can log into PacketCluster<tm>s when I'm on the road.  If you 
have good/bad personal experiences with any of them, please e-mail direct 
-- I'll summarize.  Thanks very much.
