Subject: Oops! CQP E-Mail Log Correction
Message-ID: <9510092220.AA22931 at greylock.local>

Here's a correction to my previous posting re CQP e-log submisison.

> Note that there were two e-mail addresses circulated for logs:
>     cqp-1995 at
>     nccc-cqp at

Bzzzt.  The first one should be:

    cqp-1995 at

Mail sent to the address will probably bounce.  In that
case, just re-send to the correct address.  Duh.

Sorry for the confusion.  73.  --John/K2MM

Thought I sent this out but got a rude error message back.

Is there a really good reason why you can't run a 922 on CW with the MODE SW
set to the SSB position??

If so, is there a good fix for amp is out of the question, yl
just bought new furniture.

Subject: Contest exchange?
Message-ID: <9510091625.ZM21872 at>

How much do you send when correcting an incomplete or busted call?

On CW, my relatively recent practice has been:

Him: K1ABC
Me:  K2ABC 5NN3 (or whatever)
Me:  K1 TU AA6MC

or on SSB:

Him: (garble) ABC
Me:  ending ABC, 59 3
Him: K1ABC 59 5
Me:  K1, thanks, QRZ?

I'd like to survey the forum community's practice in this area.  I have in the
past tended to use the CT AUTOCORRECT feature which will resend the entire call
on CW, but recently in an attempt to speed things up I've started to manually
send just the part I got wrong, prefix or suffix.  But a contester who I
greatly respect discouraged this practice, in essence saying that I hadn't
completed the required exchange.  Another contester I greatly respect
abbreviates this even further, as:

Me: (garble) ABC
Me:  ABC, 59 3
Him: K1ABC 59 5
Me:  AA6MC

What do you say?  Please send your opinion to me, I'll tabulate the votes and
share the summarized results.

What happened to propagation?? Almost no one on 160, either!
Conditions were el-stinko!!I can't believe I missed Hawaii again
(plus a few others!). I even turned the beam West and called CQ,
to no avail - just worked lots of 5's off the back! Still, lots 
of fun. I had some great runs. This is ALWAYS a great contest.
I hope I can put in the full 24 hours next year (this year was
about 15). At least the station performed flawlessly!
