Call Book CD

Can't recall where I originally read the posting someone made abt the 
"new" 1996 Radio Amateur Call Book, so if this msg is out of order here, 
my apologies in advance!

I am VERY disappointed since purchasing the  "Summer Edition. Fully 
Updated" <Title description>. No way is this a "Summer Edition", unless 
of course that refers to when it was sold instead of when the data was 
last compiled. I have TWO other CD's with more current info. Sorry Call 
Book, but once bitten, twice shy.

It was pointed out that the built in search stops at 25, so
all the ties for most spots were a function of the technique used.
The good news is that the totals are not dramatically different.

K6D     27
K6N     26
K6R     28
K6T     33
K6V     26
K6Z     26
W6F     31
W6I     30
W6K     31
W6P     27
W6V     28
W6W     27

So K6T was the most frequently spotted station (heard no speculation
as to who that might be).

I understand the point of view, but in a masochistic sort of way, I like a 48
hour no-limits single operator contest too.  It's the same reason people run
marathons I suppose.  When it's all over you're beat to a pulp but it feels
sooooo good!

I say use of packet during contests and making "other-band" skeds and QSYs
are for whisses, puny ops., sissies, nerd pluses, and the like.

Gimmey it raw, please.  de K4VUD

P.S.:  What a pleasure to operate IARU without all those pushy,
inconsiderate operators and their over-blown 
signals from the "top" stations.  Hurray WRTC, do it again and again!!!

I got another suggestion of how to get non-contesters to join in the
contest fun:  be considerate and polite to "    "      when they call you
and say things like, "What is the exchange"  etc.  And, the standard for
politeness in S. Am. is much higher than US, so take it easy on them and
they will join the fun too, maybe.  73, K4VUD

What WWW location has the details of who, where and when for the WRTC. I am
curious about the differences in the 40 meter signals from the various 1x1s.
Did anybody check the stations out before the test?

I'm kinda new to this e-mail/internet stuff so please bear (bare?) with

The IARU contest this weekend was an outstanding event. To all of those
involved with the WRTC: "Well done". Lets not wait another 6 years to do
this again.

I managed to work 14 (quit laughing!) of the Team Stations from the east
coast with my Argonaut 515 (I saw a snicker...) at 2.5 watts output
(yeah, your linear filaments run more power than that) and a TH7DX @ 52
feet all on 20 meters. Only had a few hours to devote to the contest but
had loads of fun and it was a very positive experience.  I guess I
qualify to get a WRTC letter opener. Now I have something to open my
e-mail with.

Thanks to all.

OK If no one else will start this thread I will.
W6V was KF3P and KR2

Anyone know who any of the other stations were?

Like many others, the WRTC'96 was the primary reason for my
participation in this year's IARU test.  When the final
results are tallied and announced, along with identifying
who was operating under which 1x1 callsign, I'd be interested
to know two or maybe three other bits of info:

1) callsign of the host station (they deserve kudos for their 
   hospitality - don't ya think?).

2) the call of the judge/ref at each 1x1 (kudos again)

3) the actual city location of each station - since they were
   actually scattered through-out the greater San Francisco
   Bay Area ... it'd be interesting to see what happened (speaking
   as a former resident of that area ....).

Also ... one more time ... a list of names/calls of the guys who
pulled it together.  BIG time kudos to the likes of AA6KX, W6QHS,
W6OAT, etc .....    Makes me proud just to have even worked them.

Congrats and 73 to all,
Portland, Oregon
Proudly wearing my old NCCC badge around the house!  :-)
