Hello Gary, K4VIG

It was nice to briefly meet you Sunday night.  I hope we can cross paths and have a chat some night.
I'm often ragchewing on 80M (mostly) or 160M in the evenings.

I know what you mean about novice days, but as good as my novice memories were, it takes nothing

Well,
  Not a trace of you here in WI, Bill. I heard a bit of ITX once.
  I then moved down to 80 meters and called CQ before net time to see if anyone was  lurking. No response. The Reverse Beacon Network spotted me 12 times with my Butternut vertical, and 17 times with my Carolina Windom 80, though!
  By 80 meter net time the NA boys were taking over, no net was found.

Hi Bill. I tried several times to check in but there was much qsb. I’m in Grand Junction, CO again living in my sons yurt with the XYL. Cozy!  

I was just 5 watts using my HB1B and a slanted 1/4 wave with tuner. I heard someone below us quite loud. I’m just 12 wpm. 

73’s all. DMR is fun too.

Carl,

The reference to the novice days brought back some wonderful memories.  Got my novice 61 years ago this spring.  Enjoying the 4sqrp group.

Re: On Air Operating

Carl Gansen
 

I know my view might be an over-simplification but in general QRP sucess is dependant on NOT getting run
over by big signals, and moving around and listening. Avoiding the 1 Khz "channels" tends to put you in a place
that others don't use and in a place where those tuning/listening for weaker signals are more likely to find you.
QRP enthusiasts, like the 4 States group, the Flying Pigs...  seem to understand this  very well and it is part of
why I enjoy participating in their events.

I offer, as a bit of evidence, for the 1 Khz channel theory, is that I routinely call CQ in between integer Khz frequencies
and I fairly often get a reply way off frequency and if I check, it's on the nearest whole Khz.  In a few cases, the replying
station told me that I was off frequency. 

It is an interesting phenomenom to me. Maybe, it's my early novice days where I'd call CQ and look +/- as much as
10 Khz for a reply because, back then,  we  novices were all rockbound.  I was anxious for the day that I upgraded and
could spin a big knob on my radio and move to another frequency and not be stuck on a "channel" defined by the few
precious crystals I could afford as a kid.

Second Sunday Sprint

John Lonigro
 

I hope everyone had a chance to record their scores, because I tabulated the results this morning.  The winner for January is Carl, WB0CFF, which seems fairly normal.  Carl will receive his January certificate shortly.  In 2nd place is a newcomer, Gary, K4VIG, who just recently joined 4SQRP.  Welcome, Gary.  We could use more competition.  Hope you become a regular.

There were 14 people total who participated.  A couple had nothing to show for their efforts.  Keep trying.  The point totals are about half of what they were last year, which might be a result of the poor propagation conditions.  Remember, the more participants we get, the better your chance of snaring a contact or two.

72 until next month,

John, AA0VE

Re: On Air Operating

Thanks Carl, good to have a bit narrower spectrum to search for those elusive QRP signals in. I'll keep an eye on 1811-1814.
Last night on 80, I called QRL four times before I called CQ and finished with a string of dits on top of me. So I moved up two and tried over again fully expecting that that was his frequency too.

Hello Gary,

I tend to avoid integer value frequencies like 1810 Khz, 1813 Khz...  In this day of digital dials, settling on an integer value
increases the chance that someone will inform you that you are on THEIR frequency, or have someone tune up over you
or call CQ on top of you.  With the exception of QRP guys or contesters, it seems everybody else has gone to 1 Khz channels.
My efforts seem to be more fruitful using frequencies like 1811.65 or 1811.35 or some such value...Being far enough from the 
1 Khz "channels" that my selectivity can ignore them, yet carry on a QSO.  The region from 1811 to 1814 has been good QRP
calling area for me.
