Has anyone had the problem with CQ WPX that I have?

Last year I Federal Expressed my CQ WPX log to CQ.  I never appeared in the
standings, and they later said the log was not received.

This year, I Federal Expressed the log along with a return enveope to
indicate receipt.  The envelope was never returned.  I checked with Fed Ex
who said the package was delivered.

I tried faxing several times to confirm receipt, but never received a

Am I doing something wrong?  Next year I may try sending by email

Tnx, Beryl

A few of the boys came over this weekend to work the contest.  Here is
what happened at Station K3LR:

10 meters K3UA single band  10 hours oping
          137 QSOs   113 mults     16,000 points

15 meters WR3G single band  18 hours oping
          501 QSOs   313 mults    162,500 points

20 meters NI8L single band  15 hours oping
          949 QSOs   455 mults   1,045,000 points

40 meters K3LR (WX3N op) single band  1 hour
           72 QSOs    57 mults      19,000 points (low power)

WR3G operated most of the weekend, sticking it out when things were
very bad.

NI8L and K3UA stopped when the K index went to 5 Saturday around 22Z

WX3N was passing by on Interstate 80 and stopped at the K3LR rest
area, made some Q's caught 4 hours of sleep and traveled onto K%ZD's

It was fun to watch.......

Back to the antenna projects!

Well, Mr. Coronal Hole sure took care of us again, didn't he?  We were
having another one of our 20-meter low-power derbies up here in
Washington, but attendance fell right off after Saturday morning.  Friday
night sure was fun, world-wide.

390 Q, 266 M = 201k 20-m, low-power

This weekend is surely cursed by the Propagation Gods...what is it, four
bad years out of the last five?  Pshaw!

How to obtain VPED?

[FTP]	You can always get the latest version of VPED by anonymous ftp
from the primary archive site;
	IP address:
	directory:	/pub/radio/vped
	filename:	(ver 1.05, for example)

[Mail]	You can also get VPED by mail. Send mail

	To: ped-request at

with body lines,


to get through from which you can
reproduce See instructions given at the beginning of the
first file. If you don't have UUDECODE or UNZIP, see the Appendix.

How to exchange information about VPED? (PED Mailing List)

Other useful commands you can mail to the above address include;
	help		(help for available commands)
	index		(index of available files)
	info		(info about PED Mailing List, PED, and VPED)
	subscribe	(subscribe to PED Mailing List)

We have created the PED Mailing List for PED/VPED users to help each
other, exchange information and share knowhow. You are welcome. The
author is also subscribing to the list and communicating with the
users, but he is NEVER OBLIGED TO SUPPORT users in any sense.

The manuals probably need improvements. Your feedbacks are welcome.
Send them to PED Mailing List <PED at QED.LASER.EE.ES.OSAKA-U.AC.JP>.

VPED would be much real if you can use voices from nine different
persons. The maintainer of PED archive is planning to make a common
place to exchange your VD files. If you don't mind, please contribute
your own VD file to the archive. The announce will be made when the
place is ready. Stay tuned!

Appendix: How to obtain UUDECODE and UNZIP?

If you get PED/VPED files by mail, you need UUDECODE. If you don't
have it, you can get it by sending mail

	To: ped-request at

with body lines,

	get uudecode.doc
	get uudecode.dbg

Save UUDECODE.DBG on your DOS and feed it to DEBUG (which should be on
almost all DOS) by typing


This will make UUDECODE.COM in a minute.

Just in case you don't have UNZIP, you can get it from the same place
in the same manner with the body line,

WOW!  Even with absolutely the worst conditions I've ever seen
in ANY contest EVER, I had one of those "miracle" non-stop
130-hour openings into Europe that never quit late night Sunday.
Europe was screaming in like I've never heard. 

North America, on the other hand, was barely there.  As expected,
100 watts just doesnt cut it over the pole.  Never will.

Hope the good folks at CQ list us in Asia this year.  Two years
running we've been wrongly listed in the results as Oceania.  
If, however, they would like to consider us as Oceania, I will be
only too happy to re-score my log.  :-)
