just so you all know, it appears our own "babe-meister" was first in the
pileup with the discovery of TicketSavers......by the way this guy is in Ft
Lauderdale, not that that matters anymore...it is just an 800 number. To
others - yes the tickets are restricted (non-refundable).......BUT AT A
C-NOTE PER PERSON SAVINGS-HELLLOOOOOOOOOOOO NCCC.
I KNOW IT IS NOT APPROPRIATE TO POST OTHERS PRIVATE MAIL TO THE REFLECTOR
Oh, I get no respect! Actually, it was me who heard the Ticket Savers
on the radio and posted it to the reflector. Just thought I'd boost my ego.

Got back in town with lists and lists of stuff to do before
bailing out again in a month for several months. So ignored
the Sprint and did some NR contacts.
All S*P, E's can't call CQ. I think the contest period is to
long which spreads out the activity. Perhaps if this event is
retained, the contest period can be modified to concentrate
the activity over a single weekend. I kept running out of
stations to work.

Subject: Font & "Sun Time" Clock Questions
Message-ID: <m0rc5jv-000EAAC at dorite.use.com>
I use a Seiko Label Printer to print QSO Labels. The software runs under
Windows and I can use any True-Type fonts along with some fonts supplied by
The problem is, I've never seen a True-Type font with the SLASHED ZERO.
In the past the SLASHED ZERO was a dipswitch option in dot matrix printers
using their native fonts under DOS.
Does anyone know of a True-Type font that has the SLASHED ZERO????
Also another windows-related question - I recently saw a piece of Windows
software called "Sun Time" in a local store. Sun Time essentially was a
software Geochron Clock. Yes I have GEOCLOCK V6.0, but since Sun Time runs
under Windows, I wouldn't have to fool around finding a DOS SVGA Driver. I
wish I'd bought it, but let N9NS talk me out of it! Later the title was out
of stock and the store had no intention of restocking it. Has anyone
seen/heard of "Sun Clock" and know either the publisher or a location where
it may be purchased???
Thanks and 73 ---> Dave, W9ZRX (zephd at iquest.net)

Bummer of a weekend. Conditions seemed like they should be ok Friday,
but had problems getting a run. Noticed the SWR was aciting up now
and then. When I went to 40 it was better. Was looking good. Quit
about 11 pm local. Went to bed to get up and try my luck at Asia on
40 at 1200 UTC. Found LOTS of JA's passing out 599-001 ... what's going
on here, none were answering. Found the ZK3MM and put him in the log.
Sure wished the JA's stuck around to give me the 599-002. Went back to
bed until sunrise to try my hand at the high bands.
Saturday morning it seemed like it was in the toliet, and the SWR
was acting up. Like I could hardly copy WS7I, and normally he is LOUD
here. Next thing, smoke is comming out of the amp. rats.
Stop and rip open the amp. Lost a relay and a couple resistors.
Checked things out on the transciever and both the A4 and R5 were high
SWR. Went outside and disconnected what I thought was the coax to the
beam and water came running out. Checked the color, yep, it's black
not green so it must be coax and not garden hose. The R5 seemed out to
lunch also. You know, the front yard really needs to have the weeds
whacked down, so I get out the weed wacker. Take down the R5. Checked
the R5 at the R5 connector and all seem fine. Checked the coax from
the R5 to the switch. Hey, this looks okay. Some more checking around
and I found a bad right angle coax fitting in the shack. Put the R5 up
and and it played fine on the transciever. It was getting dark so I tried
40 on the HF2V Saturday night, but not much luck. Compared to the A4, the
HF2V never did play that well. Tried the R5 barefoot Sunday, but not much
Well, next year will be better. Hopefully ARRL DX will be alot better.
Ray, I liked my score a lot more before I ran WPXSCORE.EXE.
