Message-ID: <199403152023.PAA12029 at>

        Has anyone had any experience with VHF/UHF TV mast mounted
        being a source for creating intermod products?
        I had one turn into a 144 MHz transmitter a few years back,
        I think my neighbor has one that allows the local broadcast
        to mix right into the 80 meter band.  Of coarse every harmonic
        our multi multi operation seems to be enhanced by this preamp
as well.
        Do you know of a high quality preamp that I could install in
        of the possible defective one?  
        I think I can install a good hi pass filter at the antenna
prior to
        the preamp and band-aid this preamp, but I want to be sure
        I mention the problem/ solution to my neighbor. 
        As they say "You have one shot".....
        I want to make sure it fixes the problem......
        Reply to me, I'll post to the group.

I just want to second what eric has said.  i was a distributor of hearing
protection devices years ago and learned a lot about hearing loss.  what
we do to our ears in a contest would be classified as industrial noise. 
In his biography, W6AM said that if he had his ham radio career to do over
again, he would not use headphones due to the hearing loss.  my advice,
keep the volume down as low as possible.  i have noticed at m/m and m/s
that a lot of the ops have it much louder than it really needs to be.  and
like eric sez, use hearing protection when you are around loud sounds. 73,

  CQ-CONTEST at TGV.COM Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) List
		   Revised:  February 9, 1994


CQ-CONTEST at TGV.COM is an electronic mail reflector dedicated to hams
interested in all types of amateur radio contesting.  This is a good
place for score reports, expedition rumors, and other contest-related
discussion or announcements.  This forum is more like the NCJ than
QST; INFO-HAMS at UCSD.EDU and are good places to
look for a more rounded discussion of the hobby.

Although there is overlap between contesters and DXers, CQ-CONTEST is
not a DX-oriented group.  DX at UNBC.EDU is an electronic mail mailing
list dedicated to the discussion of DXing.  For details on how to
subscribe to this and other mailing lists, consult the List of Lists
at the end of this message.

Each message you send to CQ-CONTEST at TGV.COM will be sent out to all
the other subscribers, kinda like a 2-meter repeater that has a
coverage radius of 12,000 miles or so.	Think of sending mail to the
list as the equivalent of an ANNOUNCE/FULL message on PacketCluster.
Use regular email to send a message to a specific individual.

Electronic mail is also different from packet radio, in that many
subscribers receive their email through commercial services such as
CompuServe and MCImail.  In essence, many people are paying for each
byte of every message sent to CQ-CONTEST.  In order to minimize
spurious messages, follow the operating hints detailed below.

How do I join CQ-CONTEST?

Subscription management is handled automatically by a program that
answers mail send to CQ-CONTEST-REQUEST at TGV.COM.  Send a message to
CQ-CONTEST-REQUEST at TGV.COM that says SUBSCRIBE if you wish to join the
group, or UNSUBSCRIBE if you want to drop out.	The Subject: line is
ignored.  Messages sent to CQ-CONTEST at TGV.COM are broadcast to *all*
readers, so don't send subscription requests there.

What are the suggested "operating practices" for CQ-CONTEST?

Put your name and call sign on every message you send.	We don't all
know everyone by just a call or a nickname.

Use a subject line that indicates the true subject of your message.

Wait a while before answering someone's question.  Six other people
have probably answered it already.  Most answers should go directly 
to the person who posed the question, rather than to the list.

Unlike PacketCluster, many people pay $$$ when they receive messages.
Some people pay per message, some per byte.  Therefore, please take
this into consideration when writing a response.  Would you pay $0.50
to read the message that you just wrote?

Eschew flamage.  If someone sends a flame to the list and you can't
bite your tongue, send your flaming reply directly back to the flaming
individual, not back to the list.  No one wants to pay $1.00 to read
these messages (the original flame + your reply).  Treat flamers the
way you would 2-meter repeater jammers - ignore them.

Make sure there is something of value in each message you send to the
list.  Avoid messages that are a complete reprint of someone else's
message, with nothing but "I agree" or "Me too" added to the bottom --
not much value there.

Some people pay by the byte, so when following up to someone else's
message, be sure to include only the essential pieces or thread of
the note.  Don't include those 20 extra header lines that your mail
gateway tacked onto the original message.

How can I find out the email address of a particular contester?

John Pescatore, WB2EKK (pescatore_jt at, and George Fremin,
WB5VZL (geoiii at, maintain fairly current lists of 
contester email addresses.  Send a note to them asking for their
lists.  You can also get a list of registered CQ-Contest subscribers 
by sending a message to CQ-Contest-Request at TGV.COM that says REVIEW.

How can I find out more about the Internet?

Pick up a copy of the book _The Internet Companion_ by Tracy LaQuey,
Addison-Wesley, ISBN 0-201-62224-6.  If your local technical book
store doesn't carry it, you can order from Computer Literacy,
2590 North First Street, San Jose, CA 95131.  Their phone number is

Message-ID: <2D875D87 at>

I don't think K1VR and N6BV had anything to say in their QST article (unless 
I overlooked it) about rotator control in a stacked setup.  Is it possible 
to modify commercial controllers (such as those for the CREATE RC5 series) 
so that they can control either or both rotators in a 2-stack?  What do the 
big multis do with their 4-stacks.  Inquiring minds want to know.  Replies 
direct please -- I'll be glad to collate responses to save reflector

Message-ID: <9403161733.AA22203 at>

Several people have asked me recently about results on the California
QSO Party, from the first weekend of October.  The results were published
in the March issue of the Northern California Contest Club newsletter,
and I know the NCCC has printed enough of these newsletters to send one
back to each person who sent in a SASE with his log.  I don't believe 
these results have gone out yet, though, so herewith is an unofficial,
partial transcription of the out-of-California results.  This report was
generated by my simply typing off the newsletter, and I'm aware I do make
typing mistakes.  So please don't hold errors against me.  

The Number One out-of-state score was 134,328, submitted by KA9FOX
operating from W0AIH.  The number two score was 120,466, turned in by
VE7NTT; the number three entry was K4LTA, with 111,592 points.  The 
sequence thereafter was K7QQ (98,542), K9BG (96,744), K0PP/7 (85,158),
AA8AV (84,274), N8LXS (83,752), N1CC/2 (82,766), VE4GV (78,648), 
KE9I (76,676), WA0AVL (73,359), WA4PGM (70,818), NX3A (70,354), N9JF

This means that even though you find some juicy multipliers on another
band, you can not change bands until you have been on your original band 
for at least 10 minutes. This does not prohibit a Multi-Single station
from using a second (or even a third) receiver. A Multi-Single station
can have only one transmitted signal on the air at any given time, and
once they have made a band change, they must stay on that band for at least
ten minutes.

I just received the latest issue of NCJ and to my surprise the editor attacks 
the new 36 hour format of the WPX contest proposing going back to the 
old 30 hour format. He says "it is time to acknowledge this rule change is a 
dog and go back to the old, superior 30 hour format" and ironically 
presents the "top six great things about the new 36 hour format".

Well trey in my opinion you are wrong.

Let's see your reasoning one by one:

"6. The east Cost now gets to win this contest every time too, just like 
virtually every other DX contest".

	- Welcome to the real world trey. Anyway I guess fact finding 
was probably not your objective.  And by the way the real world is not the 
east coast or the west cost or the USA . Don't forget this is a world wide 
contest - world wide contest - by contrast to a domestic affair. So if you 
want to propose changes to a world wide event keep your perspective there.

"5. Single-band entrants now get to spend six more hours on marginal and 
dead bands."
	- In 1992 I broke the 15m EU SSB record as CT2A under the 
new format (and under the old 30 hour format for that matter) and I had no 
dead band to worry about. What you should say is that conditions are 
going down and the HF bands will close sooner but that is a totally 
different story.

"4. 20 additional operations from the Caribbean could mean 120 additional 
multipliers in a real DX contest - an increase of 20%, 20 additional 
operations from the Caribbean could mean 20 additional multipliers in 
WPX - an increase of 2%!"

	- " (...)a real contest(...)". A real contest???!!! What is this? It 
seems you inadvertently reveal your sentiment towards the WPX. 
Therefore I can only deduce your conclusions are biased. Please don't 
compare the WPX with the WW or any other contest. They are different 
and that is where any comparison ends. Please if you don't love it don't 
touch it.
	And do you think 2% increase is not good enough? I don't believe 
in spectacular changes. They only work in the minds of the derelicts. Like 
Confuncio I think the best way to get somewhere is by taking the first step 
and then one at a time.

"3. Expeditions have increased a whopping 0%"

	- Well ... this is your only point I have little to say. First show us 
the results and in a couple of years you can hardly assess anything.

"2. Records are now meaningless."

	- But of course. But from now on they will be meaningful. Just 
have a look of what happened to the javelin competition in athletics.

"1.More 0 - point QSOs are now possible."

	- But this is great. In the WPX this means you can find more 
multipliers, increase your score, have more fun.

	Well Trey going back your reasoning I cannot find any good 
reason for your attack on the new WPX 36 hour format but to speculate on 
the lack of material for your editorial.
I believe CQ magazine should be congratulated on increasing the time of 
	As far as I am concerned I only devote seriously to 48 hour 
format contests. I still think 36 hours is not enough.
	And they told you right that one of the reasons for change was 
pressure from DX-Peditioners to get more fun out of their tremendous 
expense to be fighting for top slots among other reasons.
	Myself since I only have time for 3 vacations a year, and since I 
will be P40V and PY0F this fall I had to decide between going to EA9LZ 
for WPX and going to France skiing with my friends. I chose the later 
because 36 hours is still not enough.

The IBM QSO Party SSB is 0Z March 19 to 24Z March 19.  This year for the
first time IBMers are allowed to work non-IBMers in the QP, so if you
are tuning the bands on the 19th and hear me (or other people) calling
CQ IBM, please give us a QSO.  Exchange is RST, QSO Number, and QTH.

Unfortunately, logs are not officially accepted from non-IBMers (I hope to
get this changed for next year), but if any non-IBMer wants to send me 
a log, I'll send you back a list of the results.

Hope to work some of you this weekend.

P.S. IBM QSO CW is April 9 UTC.

Subject: K8AZ ARRL SSB Contest Results
Message-ID: <199403171253.HAA23414 at eeyore.INS.CWRU.Edu>

Someone asked about the K8AZ breakdown for ARRL SSB:

160m	23	19
80m    102	53
40m    156	69
20m    874     121
15m    746     122
10m 	81	43
     1982      427     =    2.53m

Operators:  K8AZ K8NZ WT8C NX8R K8BL

Conditions were lousy, especially on the 2nd day.  We are very proud to
be holding a score this close to the East Coast stations.  It's 
definitely time to turn the 10m 5/5/5 S-SE.  Just no EU on 10m all weekend.
Class of Station:  Multi-single.
