Just a quick heads-up, I've got DXMaps running at the moment (shhh don't tell the boss!) and 10 seems to be open to Europe at the moment. Of course, I'm stuck at work...

RMRc 14.0625 - 2300z

Dale Putnam
 

Tues... a great brand new day... right? Well.. ok.. new day in REGULAR time.. and that means our RMRc net will be meeting at2300z, so please drop by and practice your cw skills at your speed. You can use a straight key or paddle or bug. I have a new antenna, that may help a bit.. and I am also trying to get another one repaired, wx permitting. This is a sponsered net by the NAQCC, however the intent is cw practice, therefore, if band conditions allow, we'll run qrp, if not..I will run a bit more power. The practice is for cw.. not weak signal. You may use qrp,.. because I don't mind weak signal practice, and I also want to practice my cw... if you have checked in, you know exactly why. IF you don't hear me on 14.0625, you may want to try on 7.0625 at 2345z if the 20 m net runs past 45, I'll try to get to 40 as quick as possible. We have two nets to practice on... and that is to allow as many as possible to practice. Someone said that we don't do anything, and to respond 
to that, I would like to practice with the exchange of station descriptions.. and oh yes.. and... because we are getting close to Thanksgiving.. what is your all time favorite dessert for Thanksgiving dinner?
See you Tuesday afternoon/evening.

Have a great day,

Re: W0O

We didn't realize until the evening of October 30th that we (our club has a preponderance of Extras) had inadvertently listed SSB frequencies for forty and twenty-meters that were not within the General sub-bands.  We immediately corrected the frequencies on our QRZ.COM listing, but some stations may have been looking at the earlier-posted frequencies.  Our apologies, as well as a promise to be more alert next year.

SSB operations commenced at 1700Z (noon CDT) on Halloween and continued throughout the night until approximately 4 a.m. local time.  The rig was a Yaesu FT-900 at 100 watts (kindly provided by WAØZOG) and a three-band dipole.

CW operations also commenced at 1700Z on Halloween day, beginning on twenty-meters and moving to forty meters in the late afternoon when twenty played out.  We alternated between forty and eighty meters the rest of the evening, using the frequencies listed on QRZ. com, until closing down at 0400Z Friday (11 p.m. CDT Halloween night).  The rig was an Elecraft K3 at 100 watts to a Carolina Windom at 40 feet.  Several CW operators manned the key(s) with varying degrees of proficiency and speed. 

We interrupted CW operations for approximately 20 minutes at 0100Z (8 p.m. CDT) in order to activate the two-meter repeater station situated at the same desk so as to accommodate local hams wanting to work us.

I want to express my appreciation to those who spotted us on various sites throughout the day and night.  It was obvious when spotting had occurred as we would suddenly get VERY busy.

Preliminary counts look like a pretty even fifty-fifty split between CW and SSB for a conbined total of over 300 contacts.

Information about obtaining a QSL card can be found at the QRZ.COM website under the call sign WØO.

Fill one out.. it won't hurt, nor does it cost anything.
Good Hunting and good Luck too.!!

SS at WC7S short time

Dale Putnam
 

Well.. ok.. maybe just a "Wha"... 

with 54Q 35 mults and a score of 3780... I know that isn't very much,...
compared to all the rest.. but in my defense, I was testing a new antenna, I only spent 1:40 on the air. 
made some adjustments Sunday, and tried it again... First try was Saturday evening.. not good.
Sunday after the changes.. oh yeah!
Had runs kof 69/hour over a 10 min period, with the new antenna... on 40 at 0140z after the changes.
Was fun... had a look ... at 10 but didn't stay long, 
The new antenna has a lot needed to be done to make it permanent, but the parts have arrived, and 
as soon as they are prepped, and the weather relents a bit... (35 - 45 mph) they'll go up. 
  This is a way too quick a test to evaluate much. But to draw a conclusion now.. I'm very encouraged.
And will proceed to construct the rest of it... 
I'm thinking it isn't for the faint of wire, tho... in my estimated "FINAL" design, it will require 1500ft of wire. 
This is the 160-10 version.. if you are interested in only 80 - 10, it can be shrunk a lot. 
More info to follow, after additional tests and contests are accomplished. More empirical evidence gathered.

Just had to share, hope I didn't bore anyone....


Have a great day,

Hi Geo....

The 2n4416 listed in the Mouser catalog is a jfet but in a metal can. Perhaps the jfet in a TO-92 plastic pak, the 2n5484, would
be a substitute. I use the later all the time. Nice part for battery op'd units.

Tom et. al.,

The sad thing about these beautiful works of American labor was that back in the 80s and 90s a person could have filled their home with these radios. I spotted two sitting in a man's garage and found out I could have them for the price of loading them in my pickup. He didn't want to throw them in the dump. I hate to think of what happened to them but I knew what would happen if I showed up with them:-) We lived in a very small house and I had already turned one bedroom into a radio, computer, workbench play room. I was pretty sure that showing up with two console radios would be pushing my luck even with a very forgiving wife.

I remember my folks telling of the time when they were thinking of buying their first TV set. My grandparents did not think tv would catch on and bought a new floor console Philco.. The old radio lived in my room as I grew up.... Heck it even had short wave bands and more importantly it would pick up WHB 710 on your radio dial. I listened to the TOP 40 ..... My sister still has the radio and the last I knew it still worked.....
