May want to wait about saying Dayton (Xenia) won't happen.  That's in May, approximately 2 months away.  Lots can happen in 2 months.

My wife and I have decided that, despite signing up etc, we will not be going to the 2020 Ozarkcon.  Very disappointing but, in view of the uncertainty around Corvid-19 and the increased medical risk for us, we just feel it wiser to forego our trip.

That means that I will not be able to help out at the kit building on Friday night. Darn.  I was really looking forward to that!!

We have, of course, paid our fee's and we do not expect nor want any reimbursement. The very best to all - stay well!!

California itself has about 200 of those cases. Everyone must do what they feel they need to do but I'm not letting a statistically non-existent virus tell me what to do. And I live in California!

Re: 40 AND 80 METER NET REPORT

John - KK4ITX
 

Johnny,

I appreciate your offer but It's really not necessary for me to check in so much as for me to try to figure out and get around the propagation issues.  One night I'll make it and it will be like a rebirth.  When Bill ran the Net he was in my "sweet spot" and it was way too easy.

I often set up WSPR on 40m around 3:00 Eastern and leave it monitoring and reporting the Spots as the Gray Line moves from Europe to the U.S.  I am just amazed at how quick the switch can be thrown off.

I also do QFOX and on Tuesday I got my first Pelt since Feb. 2019 on 40m and the Top Guns to my North & North East did not, usually it's exactly the opposite...……. just like Real Estate...…… location, location, location !

So it's all fun and discouraging at the same time and that keeps it from being boring I guess.

Take care,

John

Hello all,
  I have for sale my QRP Guys Digital Dial. Built into a heavy gasketed plastic box, wired with an internal 4xAA cell holder, power switch, and BNC signal input jack. The box is 4.5” x 3.5” x 2”. Set up as a frequency counter, but an IF shift could be programmed in if desired. Heck this could be the foundation for a rig in a box!
  I used it with an HW8 I no longer own. Will ship to US address for $35 check or Paypal.
