Wondered what happened to you last night Uncle Phil. JB came around for comments and you had done flew da coop. HI HI
 
Was nice to hear another Midwesterner check in along with the fellow in Missouri. I made mention to JB about the crystal pig rigs on 7.122 and hoped to hear some. We normally use whatever power it takes and were just experimenting with power levels last night.

Not sure about Walnut, but Arnie was able to hit the Pittsburg machine last year
with an HT. I dont remember if it was with the rubber duck or if he had to use
a gain ant. Maybe he'll jump in and tell us.

Randy,
Yep, and I like it, a lot. I will use it in the next sprint, just got to figure all the in's and out's and I'll be good to go. Not that it's complex, just a matter of time - or lack of it at the moment! If there was a store selling time I'd likely be it's best customer!
God Bless my friend and yes it was good to put your call in the sprint log as well.

Hi Jeremy,

"there's just no GOOD contesting software for Linux". That's okay cuz I'm not a very good 'contester' <evil grin>. The last time I bought and used *ANY* Microsoft stuff was NT Back Office. After I spent all that money and installed all the software Microsoft informed me that none of it would actually work until I bought even more software. So I used the basic NT stuff for a while and in the meantime I got up on top of Linux - which I was already running. MS dropped support for NT soon after I abandoned it anyway and I nave *never* looked back. Anything I can't run under Linux I live without. I notice that cave men got by just fine without computers. I'll get by without MS somehow. There is nothing in any of my computers from MS and hasn't been for quite a few years. I suppose that *I* am the Linux guy <grin>.

I am getting an old laptop ready to log during field operations and It will be running Linux. It's not a high powered machine and I don't want to use up it's resources managing WINE and Windows applications. I have been doing okay with xlog. I'll give CQRlog a look.

Brutus Bash

Jeremy Utley
 

Hey all!

Just got off the phone with the Brutus office, and got my spot reserved for the weekend! Am planning to bring the FT-817, along with my new "yo-yo" dipole antenna, based on this design: http://www.eham.net/articles/21744. I use a 20-ft telescoping aluminum pool cleaning pole as the mast, and each reel has 70ft of 26g "Silky" wire from Wireman coiled up in it to allow for 80m work. I'll also probably bring my 2m J-Pole and mobile radio to monitor area repeaters as well, so if anyone doesn't know how to get there, feel free to call in ( what's a good repeater from the site? One of the Pittsburg or Parsons machines maybe? Or maybe even the Chanute repeater, which I believe is actually near Walnut - Tom, I'd be interested to know if a person might hit the CNU repeater from the site - I could actually get the XYL on the repeater if I wanted!)

One question - what time does the office close in the evenings? I probably won't be down there until about 6:30 or 7pm Friday night - don't get off work until about 5pm, and it's a good hour and a half drive down there!

Jeremy

Hi,

I went to that page and took a quick peep. I see that it runs only under
Microsoft Windows. That's not a *bad* thing - if you run Microsoft
Windows. I do run 'some' windows programs in WINE which is a Linux
support system for that purpose. I prefer to use 'native' application
programs and I have several that are native to Linux. This is just a
heads-up to others who do not run MS Windows.

I'll have it running on the laptop and capturing all the frequency/mode data from the KX3 at Brutus.  Like Terry, I've been using ACLog since it came out.  I bought the CD way back when and all the upgrades still work just fine with the registration codes Scott sent me with the CD.  He's real good about "pay once and get pretty much lifetime upgrades."  Not too many other software companies do that, they give you a 1 year license and if you don't renew it, the software quits working.

If I manage to make it to BB this year I'll also have it set-up and running on my net-pad. In addition I have a little Toshiba Libretto, runs Windoze 98, on which ACLog V3.4 runs just fine.

I had tried mni logging programs sum of which were costly. Non seem to fit my needs. Then I stumbled onto ACLOG and at first loaded the free trial version. I cud set it up to look like my old ARRL logbooks. Thus it was easy to load some of my old paper logs into it. So I bought the full version. I am running the latest version now. No charge for any updates. Love it. I also have used it for more years than I can remember. Thanks Scott!  73 George/W2BPI

Hi JB,

I heard you on 7122 and came back. I did not realize that you were running a net and checking propagation.
I heard you , WB0QQT, and KG0YR in NE and MO. They make sense with the 40-M dipole.
I was running 10 watts with a YAESU FT-450D into a NVIS dipole - so surprised that I picked you up on west coast.
I would have expected to do better with the vertical............

Anyway enjoyed the contact. I am a member of the "4SQRP" group here in the midwest and we have a CW net
also on 7122 on Wednesday nights at 7:30 CST. You might check in.

Hope to work you again. TNX, Phil, W0XI, Lawrence, KS

Very interesting net experiment tonight!

Tonight's topic was QRO vs QRP. Several were QRP, but those that could varied power. It seems true that increasing power from 5 watts to 80 watts is only about 2 S-Units (12db).

Most reported about a two S-unit change, going from say 80 watts to 5 watts, or in my case, 99 watts to 5 watts. True, readability suffered somewhat, e.g., Steve went from 559 to 339, but that was because he was down in my noise level. After net Steve tried a 80m horizontal dipole, but his vertical was a 1-2 S-unit stronger signal.

Thanks to all for a very rewarding over-the-air confirmation of something I've read and wondered about for quite some time.

WA0ITP
 

Our own Max McCoy, KC0MAX, has a great article on page 68 of the September QST.  Max is a talented, well read, and award winning author, and this article showcases his skill.  He mentions the Group as being instrumental in his early QRP career, and his QRP adventures from Leadville, CO are highlighted in the article.  
 
Congratulations Max, it's good to see you published in QST!
