  > KS9K (op N0BSH)     785 X 443   =  810,690
This was a 40 meter single band effort.

  > WE9V (at KS9K)     1674 X 696   = 2,653,152           
This was a 15 meter single band effort.

Both efforts break the previous 9-land records.

"I'm too short for QRO"

I resisted every effort to turn on the rig this weekend... the new YL in my
life -a FOX!- is requiring more skill, timing and determination than the WPX
could have possibly needed. Is there some PED trainer for winning over YLs? 
I guess I've spent too much time running and now I need to search and POUNCE!
 I guess I should move this to the Dating Reflector.  ;-)

This is just a hair over the existing W1 record.  Hopefully it will
stay that way after the bogus mults (xx/AE, NP4IW/6, etc) are removed.

At the last minute, discovered that WPX M/S isn't CQWW-style, with
a separate mult station.  Oops!  Good thing N1HFE read the rules!

Also couldn't get CT (8.53) to do serial numbers right - it wanted
separate numbers per band.  Ended up with post-it paper over the
log window's serial numbers, and notes to use the summary window's
"ALL" number instead.

Discovered in CT that, after doing control-rightarrow to the announce window,
pressing pgup switches the spot filtering between mults-this-band to
mults-all-bands, qsos-this-band, and qsos-all-bands.  We find a new 
feature each time out...

More on CT to the CT reflector, when I get a chance...

were right on target for breaking the 1.5mil score level until murphy
stepped in.  My radio stopped functioning at 10z Sunday morning.  Looks
like the pass transistors in the power supply gave up the ghost.  I'll be
back next year to try again :-)

Subject: CW Internet Sprint contest
Message-ID: <9403281805.AA19411 at cmicro.com>


Contest period: 00:00:00Z to 02:00:00Z on Sunday Apr 3rd (Saturday local)

Bands: 40 and 20 meters only.

Max power output: 150 watts.

Exchange: Consecutive QSO number (starting with one), name and state
          or province or DXCC country (if outside W/VE).  The name for
          the first QSO is your name.  For every QSO afterwards, the name
          you send is the name you received in the previous QSO.

Call: CQ INT

The standard sprint QSY rule must be followed.  Both callsigns must be
sent during the exchange.  Only one signal at a time please and all QSOs
are to take place on CW.  All information submitted must have been decoded
during the contest.  The use of post contest detection or verification
techniques or systems is not allowed.  Also, do not make round robin
type QSOs.  It will be very easy to spot these with the names floating
around.  A round robin QSO is one where you should QSY, but instead
hang around to work the station who is QSOing the station you gave
the frequency to.

You may work the same station multiple times provided they are separated
by at least 3 other QSOs in both logs (regardless of band).  For example,
if WN4KKN and N6TR had a QSO, they both must work at least three other
stations before they could work each other again.  Changing bands does
not eliminate the three QSO requirement.

You must not work the same station or stations using any kind of schedule
or system.  It is the intent of this rule to make sure we don't run out of
stations to work.  It is NOT the intent of this rule for you to change how
you would operate the contest if dupes were not allowed.  If, in the log
checkers opinion, you have not lived up to the intent of this rule, your
log will be disqualified!!

Total score is the number of contacts you make.  The same penalities used
in the sprint contests will apply to busted contacts with the following
exception: If any information is miscopied, it will be removed from both

Please refrain from using vulgar or inappropriate names.  If you receive
one of these names, fell free to either edit it or replace it with your
starting name.  Make sure to make a note in your log so we know what you did.

Logs must be sent in ASCII format via internet to n6tr at cmicro.com within
72 hours of the end of the contest.

Logs must show the band, time, station worked, number sent, number received,
name received and QTH received for each QSO.  Also, please tell me the
name you start the contest with.  I will assume the name you send is the
name received on your previous QSO, so you don't have to show that.

Results will be publised on CQ-CONTEST.

Good luck, tell a friend and HAVE FUN!!

Subject: 6D2X arrl ssb band totals
Message-ID: <199403281907.AA03593 at zoom.bga.com>


i thought some might find this intresting. 
i have spent the last two years operating the arrl ssb dx contest
from 6D2X-ray.  last year we operated in the multi/2 class and this
year we entered the M/M class.  

our M/M effort should really be best described as M/3 as we only
had 3 stations on during the contest.  anyway here are the band
breakdowns from the two years. 
	93		94
160      531             760
80	1371		1679
40	1850		2033
20	2114		3251
15	3536		3839
10	4217		2267
tot    13619           13819

the most notabicle thing from the above numbers is the diffrence in
10m condx.  most of the 10m score this year was made via various
forms of scatter ie. back, side, forward etc. 
this makes for slow rates indeed. 
also it must be noted that anytime that we were on 10m and 15m - this
means all day long - we were using a butternut hf6 on 20m! 
now to the point of all this - both years we really tried to 
give out the freq of the other stations so that folks would 
work us on more than one band.  so the question that i had was
"how many people did we work on more than one band?" 
so here are the numbers - 

		93		94

unique calls 8735              7991 

6-bands       113		182
5-bands       192		248
4-bands	      329               319
3-bands       588               749
2-bands      1388              1471
1-band       6125              5022
so on more than one band 
             2610              2969 
of course i am sure that there are a few broken calls - but i found
this kind of interesting to look at.  thanks for all the contacts.

Subject: Gerrymandering club areas!
Message-ID: <9403282000.AA19762 at thomas.ge.com>

Sure, the proposal to exempt some clubs from the 175mi rule sounds interesting.
But it would raise more problems than it could possibly fix.  I could see my
club, the YCCC applying for compensation for the part of our radius that covers
Long Island Sound and the offshore waters, and the off shore areas around Cape
Cod.  Maybe we could get the rest of Northern VT and NH added, there are some
members up there that are outside the radius.  Or would we be better off 
getting more area in central NY or down into NJ?  Maybe we could get credit
for all of Maine if we try to even out the populations of the different club
areas like they do congressional districts... but we would probably have to
give up New York City or maybe Albany to another club.  How would the FRC and
PVRC draw the line where they overlap?  should they get compensation because
their radiuses overlap?  Maybe we could tie it to propagation, and give
the black hole clubs bigger areas so they could improve their club scores?
I think the whole idea of the ARRL radius limit is to keep club competition
down to real clubs, not just groups of contesters spread all over the world
adding their scores together to beat some other group that does the same.  
maybe 175mi isn't the best, it is still a very long drive to attend even 2
meetings per year for those near the edge, but i don't think there should be
exemptions from it for special cases... after all, every case is a special
case if you look close enough.  We could end up with a mess like the DXCC
country rules that have been interpretted all sorts of ways over the years to
add various 'countries' to that list.

Well, it's not exactly the largest score you'll ever see...less than 10k
points...but unless another group enters a m/m score, it will be the
record for the 7th district!

Myself and three nine-year-olds went at it for several hours on Sat and
Sun afternoon.  Competitiveness was dampened considerably by an absolutely
gorgeous weekend and the boys were more interested in playing outside than
sitting in the shack...where are their priorities? (:-)

However, I got the shack wired up so that I can run two low-power
stations, each with a PC running N6TR, and my pair of headphones able to
switch between either rig.  One boy was tuning and the other was getting
help in working a pileup.  The remaining boy was pestering me about when
HE was going to get to operate.  I felt like I had taken three young
fishermen out and ran into a school of hungry perch. Yow!  You get the idea.

Their most enjoyable feature, however, seemed to be using the "Gab"
functions to send messages like "Work somebody, butthead!" to the other
station.  It seems that we never really do grow up, do we?

They'll be on again in Field Day and before you know it, there will be
another three or four Novii loose and wondering why they can't work
anybody in Sweepstakes in the Novice Band!

P.S. I wonder if they really did set a record...were there any other
7-land multi-multi's out there?

Called it quits Sunday morning after about 28 hrs of operation or so.
Thanks to my JA XYL (Akiko/WH0AAM) for letting me play during the contest.

Additional Comments:
The W7RM QTH is like a "DisneyLand for Hams".  Rush is a good cook, too.
If I were "really" a good contest operator - I would have been "dangerous".
I am in awe of the truly Great Ops in this contest.

Paul- We encountered the same serial numbers by band problem with CT in
our M/S effort from 6E2T, except you solved it more innovatively. We
assumed CT was correct until someone dragged out the rules and we found per
band serial numbers were only for M/M stations. Steve VS6WO had the
reverse problem at VS6WO M/M. CT showed their serial numbers as
consecutive throughout contest without regard to band, but they needed
serial numbers by band. This leads me to believe the code was swapped
somewhere during the version 8 revision. Any more info on this or how to
fix? 73, Larry N6AZE

Dave- This debate sounds like the constitutional convention all over
again! I think gerrymandering is NOT a good idea, for whatever the
ultimate rational purpose. But let's try this-- state constest clubs for
ARRL/CQ competition. You PVRC and FRC guys benefit from the 175 mi rule
because you can cumulate regional club scores across state 
boundaries in states that happen to be small and close together. In CA and
FLA and TX (with the biggest ham populations by state, BTW) we cannot even
have clubs that include active contesters more than 175 mi from contest
centers. Also, I'm reminded of the wisdom of BAKER v. CARR-- one man one
vote. Maybe the ARRL as a national organization should start thinking about
"One ham, one vote" in the revision of some of these rules.

	Maybe the ARRL as a national organization should start thinking 
        about "One ham, one vote" in the revision of some of these rules.

But of course votes from Extras and contesters should count more, and . . . . .

I am glad that most of the comments I've read here on e-mail lately do not
buy into squelching the competitive nature of our sport.  I had read with
disdain several months ago the attempt to do the impossible ... equalize the
competition to encourage participation.  The latest thread suggests that we
should look at splitting single-op categories into single transmitter and
multi-transmitter.  From my perspective, it's just one weapon in my
contesting arsenal.  A 100W transmitter to an auxilliary antenna as a second
station will do wonders for your score.  The challenge we face as competitors
is overcoming the fundamental obstacles to using these skills.  We are faced
with 1)technical challenges; 2)physical and mental challenges and 3)monetary
and space challenges.  Number three is perhaps the most difficult to get
around, but as KM9P pointed out, it doesn't take much!  Numbers one and two
are the ones that true contesters will relish in attacking.  

The goal of most contesters is to improve their score by whichever way they
can within the letter and spirit of the rules.  Hardware is one way. 
Learning band conditions thoroughly to different parts of the world is
another.  Using computers if it helps the score.  Multiplexing with two
radios.  These are all ways to help you do better against the guy across the
street.  It encourages inventiveness, increases technical knowledge and
pushes the skill base to the limit.

Breaking the single-op category into single transmitter and multi-transmitter
reduces the incentive of mid-level contesters to take the next step towards
increasing overall ability.  The overall level of competition may hence
eventually be reduced.  Keep the single-op category the same.

     to do with someone hearing my big sig!!

Entering in a new catagory, Most well known personalities worked.
KM9P, WN4KKN, AA6TT and the coup de gras:  CALLED BY K1AR!!  We're not
worthy! We're not worthy!

Fun Stuff.  First real experience with paths other than the short ones,
which never seemed necessary from W1 land.  Can't wait to inherit the
family home in CT!!!  Friday night thought 15 single was poor choice.
Only a few JAs on backscatter, and a few VK and ZL contacts.  Saturday 
went much better with good NA mults, and some EU.  JA run was decent.
Sunday had a good EU opening, and Asia came up around 2300 to make the
last couple hours fairly productive.  Most surprising contact was RK0AXX,
over the pole after the band seemed dead.  Tried to use the '1000s dual 
recieve to find new mults/piles, some success, need more practice :).

Many thanks to Alan for yet another guest op opportunity from K6XO.
