Message-ID: <199601230551.AAA08414 at borg.mindspring.com>

The number of uniques removed in 1995 for both CW and SSB contests was 5.
2 of these were probably busted calls that a unique program would catch.
There was only 1 contact removed from a USA/VE log that was a toss-up.  I am
expanding my mailing to each station so listed to give to give the
contestant all benefit of the doubt!

All of us bring up rare DX to increase our score or get an opening that no
one else nearby catches due to antennas, receivers, or just plain luck.
There is no penalty for this in the CQ 160 Meter contests because 99.99% of
the time someone else works the station or its obvious that one of the
operators of a multi station jumps in to work a new one or help a friend.  I
would expect to be much more lenient on 10 or 20 meters as I expect many
more uniques there.

We bend over backward to help on busted calls as these are honest mistakes.
However we do remove well over 50% of the busted calls because another part
of the information is wrong or its a dup once corrected.   Busted
information is just prevalent.   K5NA could be listed as TX when until this
year he was in NY.  I see many USA or VE hams listed as K or US or VE for
the mult.  These are all corrected and mults removed if necessary.   The
last set of busted information is "computer busts."  This could be typos or
the program overrides the correct location (as with KH8AC or KG4W) and/or
plugs in the wrong points.  These are all corrected.  Each year I threaten
to penalize those who do not check thru the computer print-out and correct
these glaring errors.   One last area of incorrect info is WAE or latest
DXCC mult identification.  Karelia was dropped from WAE, but many EU hams
did not know or did not correct.  A few still don't count MM correctly or
still try to take a mult for MM calls.  My feeling is that removing points
or mults hurts enough unless it is obvious that a contestant is trying to
beat the system  and having checked logs for several years this becomes very

The main area that I concern myself with is to make sure that there are not
calls in a log that are false!    The worst offenderI checked  was losing
well over 50% to non-matches before being disqualified.  Don gave me one log
that probably only had less than 30% of the claimed contacts as valid.

Once I let the computer do "all"  the checking then all human error will go
away!   What we don't know is what new problems this can create!

Good luck to every contestant in 1996 ...see you there.

Fellow contesters!

..here we go again.....

I appreciate this may not be on your "MUST-DO list" this coming
weekend, but if 160m gets dull...do listen up for us...slogging
away for the REF CW contest for 36 hours!

The rules (for stations outside: France, French overseas territories and
DA1/2) can be found somewhere in QST and RadCom.

For those without a copy...here are the basics:


      0600Z Jan 27 to 1800Z Jan 28

Mode: A1A  Bands: 80-10m


      single-op single band

      single-op  all band

      multi-op all band

Valid QSOs:

      French stations, including overseas territories and DA1/DA2 (French
      military stations).


      RST and serial number.

Valid QSOs:

      1 point for QSOs within own continent

      3 points for QSOs outside own continent


      (per band)

   -  French Metropolitan Departments
               (there are 96 including Corsica's 2A and 2B)

   -  DA1 and DA2
               (FFA: French Forces in Germany)

    - French Overseas Departments and Territories (within DXCC list):
              (DOM/TOM: FG,FH,FJ,FK,FM,FO,FP,FS,FT,FW,FY)

    - DXCC countries (excluding F,TK and DOM/TOM see above)

    - F6REF/00 (this REF station counts as an extra mult)


      Multiply the total QSO points by the sum of all multipliers.



             - top single-op (with atleast 100 QSOs)

             - top multi-op (with atleast 250 QSOs)

      and then for each other continent:

             - top single-op (with atleast 50 QSOs)

             - top multi-op (with atleast 100 QSOs)


I hope this is clear!

I do have a copy of the complete rules (including those for stations within
France, FFA and DOM/TOM)....they're in French...but if you'd like a copy..
drop me a note.

73 et a bientot!

Charlie Harpole writes, "Why doesn't a weather vane turn itself some
screwy way in a wind but instead points to the wind direction?"

This is a very illuminating question.  Imagine a "one-element" beam
with a symmetrical boom and one element on one end (nothing on the
other).  If you put this in the wind, it will swing right around until
the element is away from the wind, right?

Well it doesn't!

And that's the point of all the hoohah about cylinders in yaw, etc.
Try this yourself.  Make a bearing from a scrap board with a hole in it.
Trap it is the sunroof of your car.  Make a mast, boom and single element
from PVC pipe.  Place the mast in the bearing, you holding the bottom
end (a right angle handle helps you feel the torque better).

Drive carefully and see what happens.  What I found is that this
unbalanced "antenna" is happy with the element at the front or at the
back, and even has stable points at the 90 degree points.

What's this all mean?  Well, a weather vane isn't made by putting
a crosswise cylinder at one end to make it point in the wind.  It
has a flat cross section, and it works as you would expect.

So the genius of the question is that it points out that the cylindrical
structure doesn't work as you'd expect.  It works the way the 
aerodynamic wizzards predict.  But the experiment has no calculations,
no assumptions, just points the way to learning that things aren't
always as simple as we'd like.

I consulted the best research text I could find (Webster's Ninth New
Collegiate Dictionary, copyright 1985) to come up with the following answer:

VANE -- a movable device attached to an elevated object (as a spire) for
showing the direction of the wind.

>From this, I conclude that if the device in question pointed some screwy way
other than in the direction of the wind, it would not, by definition, be a
weather vane.  It would be, perhaps, an antenna.

You are seeing only the tip of my convolution here. :-)

Charlie, for what it's worth ($0.02), I far prefer Dave's engineering to the
bald, unchecked assertions that are often presented as fact here and
elsewhere.  As my favorite antenna guru says, "If you can't come up with a
physical explanation for why something happens, it probably doesn't."

The reason my (genuine Creative Labs Soundblaster) worked fine with
LTA's Contest Voice Blaster at the DOS prompt or when other programs 
ran, but not while CT ran, was the lack of the "EMM386.SYS" driver. I 
had "HIMEM.SYS" but not the other and for some reason this interfered
with message playback while CT was running. Running the DOS program
"memmaker" and letting it rummage through my autoexec.bat and config.sys
files was the cure, although I didn't know this ahead of time!

Thanks for all the support, folks.

>CQ 160 Meter Contests Director   

Gee, this scares me even more!  I think I like having a human involved as a
backup to the computer checking.  Seems harder to anticipate every possible
scenario for a unique or for a strange propagation path and write an
algorithm that anticipates it than it is to humanly view a qso and then
theorize why that may be a good qso or may be a bad qso.

Just for the record I hope you don't think I am picking on you, Dave.  As
far as I know you have been doing a fine job, although my last 160 contest
was in the N4IN era.  You just happened to have raised some issues that I
have thought about off and on for my many (36--although intermittent) years
of contesting.  Uniques are a worry especially in the world of multi-op
contesting since it is hard to know just how reliable all of the ops are and
most of my efforts have been as an operator at multi/multis.  

I hope to get my 160 4-square finished (radials) and repaired (lightning
took the phase box) and get serious about 160 efforts and the last thing I
would want to do is offend the guy who checks the logs!  HI!

A lot of the procedures about log checking have been somewhat mysterious,
especially in the past, but I find that there is a new era of trying to
explain it all with the article by Bob Cox on the CQWW checking in the CQ
Contest magazine and the articles in NCJ about how ARRL does it.  I
appreciate your comments about the 160 test and I hope the discussion that
it has generated has been useful to both you and the other competitors.

I have always taken the position that if our logs are clean and if the log
checkers are doing a good job, then we have a very good chance of winning in
a close race.  So I prefer intense log checking, I just don't want a good
qso to be thrown out because it might be bad.

Competent log checking is important and I can only guess at how much work
must go into the effort and how little appreciation is expressed to the log
checkers.  Keep up the good work, Dave, (and all the other log checkers) and
thanks very much for the insights your original letter provided.

        Don't let all the whiners stop you from the excellent tradition of 160
log checking that N4IN began.  I believe Don was the very first to do any
serious computerized uniques analysis, etc LONG before anyone else.  I
had the pleasure to enter the 160 contest continuously from 1986 through
1993, and NEVER felt the scoring was unfair in the least.  This contest
became my alltime favorite in part because I knew there was someone
like Don who would weed out any of the imaginary contacts some less
than scrupulous competitors might be logging.  I think the tradition
Don started, just like other aspects of Top Band, separates the men from 
the boys and the whiners from the achievers.  Keep up Don's great
tradition of maintaining integrity in my favorite contest!  I think he would
be proud of what you're doing.

Hello Folks,

        I'm planning on putting up a 40M 1/4 wave vertical in the woods
behind my house. I currently have a wire version hanging from a limb, but I
would like this one to be free-standing (or guyed if necessary).

        Does anyone have recommendations on material? I have looked at
aluminum tubing in 6 foot lengths. Since this could be nested with a fair
amount of overlap, it would seem to be pretty strong. What is the smallest
size I could start with?

        I also wonder about  TV mast, conduit or other hardware store
goodies. This antenna will subject to almost no wind (less than 20 mph), and
very little if any ice etc. 

        Any help on materials, or where to find some infromation would be

By the summary, I guess you can tell when we finally joined the 'party.'

Y'know, I really look forward to  NAQP simply because it truly is a fun 
event, and it doesn't take a lot of hardware to be competitive.  Take my QTH 
for example.  I have an oxidized trap vertical and a 300 ft. horizontal 

Let's start with the loop.

During a recent storm, one of the corner ropes had broken free of the loop 
and the corner of the wire was held up by a cedar tree.  Also knowing that 
the loop would not tune on 160 I wanted to put up an inverted L for 160. 
 Now was a great time to call bulls-eye Bob 'Sling shot' McKensie, K4MLR. 
Well, we got the corner of the loop back where it belongs; we had to give a 
number of strong pulls on the ropes for the wire to clear some branches. 

The L went up 'bout as good as one could hope, thanks to bulls-eye Bob. The 
vertical part went up a good 75 feet.  By the time I got the ground rod in 
and the radials run it was 2.5 hours into the test.  Time to run the coax to 
the house and start operating and maybe, just maybe running a frequency.

(Assume the position) 
WHHHACK ! Thank you contest master may I have another!!!!

Just like in the cartoons, the length of coax was about 2 feet short of the 
tuner!!  Oh, sure I had some other short lengths of coax, but no barrel 
connector! So I damn near herniate myself dragging the desk near the coax 
creating a heave in the rug for someone to trip over as well as still not 
having the coax laying flat on the floor.  I had visions of someone tripping 
over the coax and sending the tuner and rig through the air.  Having 
"solved" that problem, I was finally ready to operate ... more or less ...

I tuned the loop on 20 and heard N1PBT calling.  I replied. His response was 
something about a weak signal. Quick flip over to the oxidized trap 
vertical. His response, "that's much better." The exchange was completed.

WHHHACK ! Thank you contest master may I have another!!!!

Seems as though when we were trying to clear the branches, we had one too 
many pulls on the ropes and somehow the loop pulled away from the coax at 
the feedpoint.  I was tuning up the coax and not the loop!

Should have left well enough alone.  The loop worked fine for all 4 (four) 
of my Qs in the NAQP-CW last weekend.

OK, OK, I'll fall back on the L as I didn't think the oxidized trap vertical 
would cut it.  

WHHHACK ! Thank you contest master may I have another!!!!

Attempts to tune the L were met with the international sign of 'field goal' 
 by the tuner.  Very high reflected power.  After sucking dry an '807 in 
approximately 4.89 seconds (medicinal purposes - to try and get my blood 
pressure and frustration level "under control" - yeah, right!) I thought 
about the SWR for a moment.  The length of the L was correct, so I must need 
a better ground and maybe a couple more radials. I ran the radials and 
further tightened the pipe clamp to the ground rod.

WHHHACK ! Thank you contest master may I have another!!!!

I over-torqued the pipe clamp and stripped the turning screw.  Fortunately, 
I had a larger pipe clamp.  Having cleared that mess, I was able to get a 
reasonable SWR on the L.

Before I really settled in and while there was _some_ daylight left I 
thought I would pull the feedpoint of the loop down check the continuity and 
re-solder the feedpoint, if neccessary, and still be viable on 40.

WHHHACK ! Thank you contest master may I have another!!!!

The feedpoint corner is held up with 2 knotted lengths of rope. The knot got 
hung up in a crotch of a substantially sized branch of the tree. The 
feedpoint is, of course, too high to grab and cut  the rope.  After a period 
of pulling and tugging the southern pine would not give in to me.

Finally, at about 0130 I started operating for good exclusively on the L. 
 It worked fine on 75 and 160. Even had some minor runs with it.

Oh, by the way if any one heard some painful expletives and 'editorial 
deletions' on 75 at about 0230 that one would not normally associate with 
the 75 jamming crowd, yeah that was me.  The headset was on VOX when a 
hellacious ham-string cramp hit me.  I can handle just about any kind of 
cramp, but a ham-string cramp will bring tears to my eyes.

WHHHACK ! Thank you contest master may I have another!!!!

Does NCJ have a humor section ???
