Yeah I'm with you on that one Johnny, don't suppose it'll do much good though. I had an issue posting pictures to my album in the group, I had to begin a new album. Yahoo has a penchant for making changes without any consideration of the possible consequences, they're that big so what do they care if tick-off a few users?
Good luck Terry, I hope it get's resolved.

4x4 Sprint

John Lonigro
 

I've received a request to verify the date, time, and rules of this year's 4x4 Sprint. I'm still working on the rules, which will be very similar to last year's but hopefully easier to understand. The date is October 3rd from noon - 4:00 pm CDT, which is 1700-2100 UTC. That will pretty much remain constant over the years. Note: Unlike the SSS, this sprint is on Saturdays.

I hope to get the rules and contest announcement finalized this month and will have them posted in the Banner when I do. I'll also send some annoying reminders via the reflector, much as I do for the normal Second Sunday Sprints.

72,

John AA0VE
4SQRP contest coordinator


August Banner is up!

Jeremy Utley
 

Hey Everyone!

The August issue of The Banner is now up and ready for your consumption!

http://www.4sqrp.com/TheBanner.php

From the Index:

Building a Copper Pipe Hentenna
Road to the NANO Keyer
HF Activity this past month
3-D Printing
KB6NU's Column
From The Editor

A big thank you to everyone who sent articles for this month's issue!
I love to log into the mailbox and see a lot of submissions!
Remember, this is YOUR newsletter, I just put it together for you!

Also, keep in mind that the September issue will probably not come out
until after Brutus. The wife and I will be traveling from August 30
to September 10, and immediately after that I leave for Brutus on the
11th-13th. So if I feel up to it, I'll try to put it together on the
evening of the 13th, otherwise it will be the 14th.

Also, want nice pictures for the front page! Shack pictures, nice
looking keys, recently finished kits, anything ham radio related is
great!

Thanks for your support, everyone! It's greatly appreciated!

Jeremy, NQ0M


Last reminder

John Lonigro
 

This is the last reminder to send in your SSS score. As of this morning, I've received scores from five people. I'll wait until tomorrow (Tuesday) morning before updating the spreadsheet.

Nick is correct.  You may not change the data base or the technique
used to test
you.

Another program that you can use for single callsigns is 'morserunner'.
It is a contest simulator, but do not let that scare you.

Bring up the program.  Unselect all the boxes on the right hand side like
QRM, QRN, LIDS, ....  QSB and Flutter.  Reduce the Activity to 1.

You set your call, cw speed, CW pitch and RX bandwidth in the upper
right boxes.

You can set the Run time to a time that you want to practice.  Start
with a value like
10 or 15 mins.  Work your way up to a marathon.

Next go to the upper top left menus and pull down Run.  There is an
option for
single calls.   This is the one that you want.

Hit the Run button on the lower right.  With your headphones you will
here a hiss
like a  typical receiver with atmospheric noise.  Hit return and you
will send CQ.

Then the fun begins.  A station will come back to you at the speed you
set or lower.
You type in their call and hit return.  The program will send their
call, then like a true
contester it will send 599 and then a Nr, starting with 001.  But
beware.  The program
uses cut numbers.  So s for 5 and t for 0.  The rest are normal.

This program teaches you to use some function buttons to resend some
of the
information requested by the station worked.  A log is kept in the
main window
and you get to see your errors.  Don't worry about the score and don't
send
in the results.  They don't take them any more as the source to the
program is
in public domain now.

This program will remind the old timers of DR DX from the Commodore
computer
days of old in the late 70s and early 80s.  DR DX was probably the
best training
program ever for contesters.  IMHO

FYI

enjoy

Thanks Nick,

Yea, guessed so. I'm getting used to it so will continue. I also use NU-MORSE for call practice and it too has it's character of "extras." Oh well. It's life.

Anybody using the RUFZ program for drilling on copying call signs?

Recall that 'Amateurfunkrufzeichen' translates roughly to 'amateur radio
call signal.' Breaking it down Amateurfunk translates to amateur radio;
ruf is roughly call and zeichen is roughly signs.

Anyway, I have been using this to try to improve my foreign call sign
copying and would like to reduce the number of more complicated calls it
automatically generates. That is I want to keep the calls simply, like
AB1ED and not AB1ED/etc.

Anybody know how to reduce the call sign set in that program as per
above to single calls?
