Subject: Need op for 160m in southeast?
Message-ID: <199511280716.BAA09051 at vespucci.iquest.com>

Can anyone use another operator for the upcoming 160m contest?  I'm near
Huntsville, AL and can go any direction within a few hours driving.  I can
also do a single-op if a kind soul opens up their shack for me.

Took advantage of my son, Kevin (KB5WWA), having basketball practice
Friday night and asked him if he would let the chief operator and tower
climber work one for old time's sake.  It was a great fun-especially
spending a lot of time on 160 Saturday night and finding that I could work
most of what I could hear with ease. 

This was single operator, all band, high (SB220) power, no assistance, no 
strategy, no special diet, etc.


160      62       16         39     Shunt-fed tower with 4 radials
 80      87       19         51     1/2 wave "Inverted V" at 75 ft.

Subject: Paperlogs and CQWW
Message-ID: <30BB46CA at mail-pc.ms%graz.pseg.siemens.co.at>

Regarding the CQ-WW Contest I don't understand why I have to send all this 
paper logs when a disk will do it too and - I MUST send a disk if I have a 
score above average. I think its a waste of paper (much) and money (p&p, 
even more from foreign countries with a lot of QSO's (>4200) hi). For all 
 other big events (WAE, WPX, ...) it is enough to send the disk and the 
signed summery sheet or, even better, you can supply only by e-mail (my 
personal favorite).
Any reason for that, and don't tell me anything about integrity (Bob, are 
you reading) ?

Best greetings from Austria

          I have gone back through the QSL return rates from my previous posting
          and focused on QSLs from Japan. I have looked at the return rate as a
          function of the year I sent the cards to the buro. Unfortunately the
          distribution over the years is proabably too irregular to be
          statisitcally significant but it is interesting that the overall poor
          return rate of 37% is actually better that that for the years when the
          majority of cards were sent. As these were 1987 (35%), 1990 (23.1%) and
          1992 (34%) this tends to disprove the sunspot or slow response theories.
          I regret to say that I am left with the conclusion that JA's are not
          good QSLers at least as far as the buro is concerned for QSOs which
          would predominantly have been made in contests.
