I always thought having some kind of partnering category would help
get people involved.  It would be fun to find a novice/tech, work
with them and get them in a contest.  There would be some kind of
scoring arrangement where they competeted both as a single op
and as a 2 person team.

PS: I agree 100% with N2AA about the money stuff.  This is not something
we should be doing for financial gain.  It should be fun and if it isn't,
go find something else that is.

Message-ID: <Pine.3.89.9406032141.A8918-0100000 at world.std.com>

My love affair with my Create RC-5A rotator may be coming to an end.  The 
aluminum housing did not hold up well over the past winter.  All of the 
rotator plate bolts stripped out of the bottom housing.

I called the US excvlusive distributor, EDCO.  They quoted me $200 in 
labor to repair.  As for parts, the tech told me he would have to order 
them and "see how much they cost."  Sure wish I could get my customers to 
buy a line like that!

So...I am looking for anyone who has a junked Create RC-5 rotator I could 
buy for parts.  Or...I am looking for suggestions on a rotator that can 
handle a 205CA and 40-2CD on top of a windy hill.

We have an excellent opportunity coming up soon to mentor newcomers to
HF contesting.  Take the opportunity to put these newcomers behind the
microphone on 75, 40, or 20 SSB with a mentor sitting next to them
during Field Day.  Don't send them off to the Novice tent or VHF tent.
The exposure to the HF contesting should give the type of exposure that
might motivate a newcomer to upgrade to a higher license class and
enjoy contesting from his home station.  Fun and excitement is the
motivation, not money or material prizes.  Gene Walsh is 100% correct.

I think the most important thing to encourage/create interest in
contesting is to invite a newbie to your shack and do a multi-single with
them.  Pick a contest that you don't usually go full tilt in and guide
them through.  Two newbie's is even better because they will have some
peer support as opposed to feeling "on the spot".

The monetary thing would probably not attract the new blood we really
want.  It might even damage the existing group by creating unnecessary
squabbling. (Is there such a thing as necessary squabbling?)

However, the "Rookie of the Year" type of award is a really good thing. 
Many local/regional clubs sponsor this type of thing.  I think that's
really done best at the local level, anyway.  National recognition will
follow.  This also means that the newbie's need to be included in the
local club events.

It's alright for you guys down south to talk about moving this contest 
forward a month each year, but what about up here in the Great White 
North where the temperature could be -40C? 
Do we get bonus points for being insane enough to operate under those

Does anyone have current info on the static buster product. It is a
device which looks similar to a rubber duck antenna which bleeds
electrostatic charge. The company was at the 1993 & 1992 Hamvention but
not this year. I called the number from literature I picked up a couple
years ago (in Elizabeth KY) but that number is no longer good. Any help
would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

                    TOEC FIELD CONTEST

This contest is sponsored by the Top Of Europe Contesters (TOEC)
in Sweden. It is intended to focus some interest to the field-award,
issued by the Swedish national amateur radio society.

The contest is divided into two separate events, one for CW and one
for SSB.

SSB:  2'nd weekend in June, Saturday 1200z - Sunday 1200z (not until -95)
CW:   4'th weekend in August, Saturday 1200z - Sunday 1200z

1) Single Operator. Packet Cluster is allowed in all classes.
   a) All band
   b) Single band
   c) Low power, only all band. Maximum output power 100 W.

2) Multi Operator. Only all band. All stations must be located
   within 500 meters diameter.
   a) Single Transmitter. Stations must remain on a band for at least
      10 minutes. Faster QSY allowed only for a new multiplier on
      another band.
   b) Multi Transmitter.

3) Mobile stations. Only single op all band.
   If more than one field is activated, all stations may be
   contacted once per field and band. The log must clearly show
   the fields activated.

The winner in each country (or US/VE call area) and class will
receive a certificate, providing that a resonable QSO total has
been acheived.

160 - 10 m bands are allowed. (Not 10, 18 and 24 MHz)

Keep the following frequencies free from contest traffic:
CW: 3500-3510, 7000-7010, 14000-14010, 21000-21010, 28000-28010
SSB: 3600-3650, 3790-3800, 7040-7045, 14100-14125, 21100-21175,

Mobile stations includes both  /M and /MM stations.

RST + field letters according to the Maidenhead-system, i.e. 59 JP
(two letters)

Each field worked gives 1 multiplier per band.

Fixed stations
QSO with station outside your continent gives 3 points.
QSO with own continent (including QSO with same country) gives 1 point.
QSO with /MM station gives 3 points, regardless of QTH.

Mobile stations
All QSO's gives 3 points.

Each station can be contacted once per band.
Exception: Mobile stations (both /M and /MM) may be contacted again,
           providing that the mobile station have changed field since
           the previous QSO. These additional QSO's gives no QSO
           points, only multiplier credit.
     Note! Mobile stations may credit QSO points for additional QSO's.

Final score:

Multiply the total QSO point score with the number of fields worked
on all bands.

The log must be checked for dupes, correct scoring and multiplier
credits. Indicate the multipliers only the first time it is worked.
Use separate logs for each band.
Include a summary sheet with the regular contents, and a dupe-sheet
for all bands with more than 300 QSO.

The log may be submitted on DOS-formatted disks. Use ASCII, CT or
N6TR style files. Name the file with your call. (i.e. SM3SGP.LOG)
Enclose a signed summary sheet. Send a SASE or SAE+1 IRC if you want
to get a confirmation that the log has been received.

Logs can also be submitted via e-mail (Internet or X.400)
Send the file in the same format as above to one of the following

I may take a couple weeks off and head to the Yucatan this fall (our 
family is in serious need of hammocks...  so the trip isn't frivolous!  
:) ).  By some strange bit of luck, I may plan the trip to take place around 
the CQWW SSB weekend.  

Does anyone know of a station (It doesn't have to be great - 100 watts 
and antennas that will radiate some of it) in Merida or nearby that would 
accept a guest op for the weekend?

If not, maybe I'll have to take another trip to Morocco.....  God, I 
love vacations!

stinko, pew, barf, waste of time, frustrating
The flatlanders in the SE USA had almost no E skip; the
mountaintop expeditions said they made their Q's on scatter
and tropo.  I refuse to even post my single band 6m results, but I
am curious how the rest of the country fared with propagation.
I heard W3EP/4 in and out all weekend and couldn't get them to
hear me.

I wasn't aware that new hams were being kept from the low-band mikes 
during FD (except, perhaps, on 75, where the ops ALWAYS seem to be a pair 
of old fogies, one chomping a cigar and both overweight; the cigar-eater 
always glances at visitors to the tent with a look that threatens to 
become malevolent if you aren't someone he knows, and keeps the log 
covered so you can't see how few Qs they really have). I've operated 
with at least six large groups (4A or more) and a couple of smaller ones, 
and the new guys were always paired-off with an experienced op at the SSB 
stations. Usually, they merely log for the first few hours; but 
eventually (usually right after dark), they also operate. CW is a bit 
different; not so many new guys even want to work CW, much less in a contest.

The real problem I've seen is that the old fogies pass on their crummy 
contesting techniques AND ideas of miraculous FD antennas to the new 
guys (why do you think the log is always covered in the 75 tent each 
year?). Few clubs/groups are fortunate-enough to have a contester who is 
savvy to showing members how to work contests efficiently; and even fewer 
contesters are willing to go against the old fogies' "words of wisdom" on 
a Windom as an efficient FD antenna.

As of 0900EST Monday morning, only one score has been posted on the 
Megacluster (covering New England down through, sometimes, northern NC 
and west to WV and up the middle of PA). K3ZO said "Conditions on 6 and 2 
could have been better", a CLASSIC understatement in my opinion.

On the other hand, had conditions been better on 432, I would probably 
have died from excitement! They really weren't that good, but my hearing 
ability improved so much after installing my new FO22 that I was 
astonished at what I could now hear.

Otherwise, I totally agree...condx are best described by Tom's first 
sentence. However, we in Northern Virginia finally got a little bit of 2M 
tropo to W1 during the last hour; unfortunately, activity had pretty much gone
to the boob tube by then.

I'll post scores from the Megacluster here when I get a few more.

And here all the time I thought the logs were covered to keep from getting
cigar juice on them.

Preliminary scores for some stations in STX. I expect to have more definite 
scores (and maybe breakdowns) later in the week. Standard band letter 
indications apply.

Station (+multiops)         Score     Bands            Section

W3XO/5 (+K5LLL, KB5NFN)     ~80K      ABCD9E           STX

W5KFT (+WB5VZL)             ~181K     ABDE ?           STX
(I'm sure George will post their true results)
