Contest Station Descriptions 3.0
I am pleased to announce the Version 3.0 of my Contest Station
Descriptions files are now available. Since the release of
Version 2 in early February, the data in the files has continued
to expand. I now have references for 400+ US/Canada and 120 DX
contest stations. Additionally, 175 records have been updated or
checked since the Version 2.0 release. All in all, the files are
developing into a great reference work for the inquisitive
contester. For example, in the US and Canada the files contain
the records of 28 stations with 15M stacks having 12 or more
total elements. If you are planning on getting your 15M antennas
updated for the returning sunspots you might want to take a look
at your competition.
As with the last release, the files are available for FTP
downloading thanks to the help of KM9P. If you have FTP
capabilities I highly recommend you obtain your copies of the
files this way. The particulars are:
* FTP Server: ftp.akorn.net (Login as anonymous with your e-mail
address as your password.)
* FTP Directory: /pub/HamRadio/Stations
* File names and types:
CONTXL41.XLS Excel 4.0 Format 166KB
CONTXL51.XLS Excel 5.0 Format 186KB
CONTWD21.DOC Word 2.0A Format 249KB
CONTWP51.DOC WordPerfect 5.1 Format 310KB
The spreadsheet formats are much more usable than the word
processing formats. Spreadsheets let you easily move around the
records from cell to cell. Because of the way the text falls in
the tables, the word document are now 33 pages long and is not
the most convenient way to review the information.
If you do not have FTP access I still can e-mail the file to you.
Just reply to this message and make sure to let me know the
* What file format you want?
__ Excel 4.0
__ Excel 5.0
__ Lotus 1-2-3
__ Word 2.0A
__ WordPerfect 5.1
* What file encoding do you need?
I hope you enjoy looking through the information in these files.
If you can add anything or just have any suggestions, please send
me a message.

everyone else has....)
