WOW  calling the Rocky Mountain Regional and Continental cw practice net.. 

Funny thing.. with 14 reporting station in the double digits over noise ... and only one station answering...

it is NOT band conditions... what is it? 

The one station that did call is in Ca.


I'll be on 7.0625 in 15 minutes.. we'll see how that works.




Have a great day,

Phil,

You can put the misc. stuff in your packed luggage, but you should take the radios on board with you.  Or at least that is what the TSA recommends. My radios (SDR, KX3, PX3, sometimes a hand-held) sometimes garner a small amount of attention, but generally it is not a problem.  Get either a tool bag, backpack or a gym bag, and pack clothing around the radios if the stuff is loose.  Leave the radios near the top.  That way if they lose your suitcase, you have the important stuff - clean underwear and the rigs.  The rest can be replaced.

I actually have gotten to the point of taking my backpack, with all the actual radio gear, laptop, and iPad,  and a carryon sized suitcase that holds my magnetic loop and most of the other things I need - mostly underwear.  I wear hospital scrubs 99% of the time when I travel so I just need clean underwear and socks.  It works for me.

Finally, Hamlog and Rumlog have versions for iPhone iPad.  I’m sure there are others. I found Rumlog easier to use but that’s because I also use it on my laptop (Macbook Air).

Hey All, 
 
Thanks for confirming that I’m still part of the group even though I’m 74.9999 years old, hi. 
 
About the GO BAG. I am searching for a sturdy but small bag/case I can “check” with the airlines. Here’s what I’m putting in it:~~ 
K1-4, K1-4 manual (maybe), SS-20 stepper supply, my older paddle (not my Italian one ), wire for 20-meter dipole, 
new 25’ batch of RS-213 from DX-ENGR with PL-259’s, bit of misc tools, extension cord.......log book. 
 
XYL (Pat) will have a laptop so maybe will get to log with that with a copy of my N3FJP program. Just a thought...........is there an I-phone app for logging? 
If not might have to develop one for next year, hi. 
 
The Condo is at the corner of the building and on the seventh (top) floor near the beach of Panama City, FL., facing south. 
 
If room, I’ll consider taking a Buddie Pole too for a beach run. 
 
Any thoughts? I’ll be on the air July 24 through July 29.

You might consider a small backback like people use at college, etc. That way if you end up having to walk around at the airport, your destination, etc. you can do so "hands free".

This scammer also posted the same message on the UDXF list. It seems like the last time I saw it on the 4SQRP list it was also on the UDXF list. I warned the UDXF list of the scam.

MODERATOR NOTE: Possible Scammer

Tim N9PUZ
 

GE folks. This is Tim N9PUZ, one of the moderators for the 4SQRP Mailing List.

Sorry for the most likely bogus message regarding items for sale. I have stopped that individual from being able to post while we attempt to contact them. Like several of you, I suspect it's a scam and if so we'll ban that address. For now, with their ability post messages disabled that should prevent problems on the list.

I was a little slow in reacting this time around. I had my eyes dilated at the doctor's today and am just now getting to where I can see well enough to read!

Re: Possible scammer at work

Don Wilhelm
 

Nate,

I would think it would be quite difficult to detect scammers when they sign up for a group like this. This is an "open group" rather than a "closed group" where everyone must be specifically invited by the moderator. As far as I know, there is no in-between ground.

What is important is that the moderator of the group has the ability to block anyone from posting. If this particular subscriber has not already been blocked, the administrator of this list is to blame. I have seen at least 2 posts (or maybe 3) from this particular scam on 4sqrp.

I have also seen this "offering" once on the KX3 Yahoo Group, and the moderator has blocked the scammer after the 1st post.

In this particular case, the address of the poster does not match the 'supposed' seller - that is an immediate clue that the post is a scam.

I cannot speak for those moderating QRZ.com and other "sell ham radio" sites, but as always it is "buyer beware". If it looks 'too good to be true', it likely is. Don't send money until you have checked it out - FCC database, QRZ.com, etc. If the seller demands a cash, bank transfer or USPS money order, be cautious. PayPal has resolution methods that work (I have personal experience, but only on minor amounts).

Most hams are honest, but it only takes one bad apple to spoil the whole bushel. Practice "safe computing", whatever that may mean in the situation.

Don W3FPR

Re: Possible scammer at work

Bottom line for me - If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

When the email address or physical address of the seller is different from the address listed in QRZ.com or the FCC database, it should arouse suspicion.

I can't imagine any one ham would have that many rigs for sale at one time.
An estate sale, maybe, but that would normally be clearly stated.

THINK, and be safe out there in internet land!
