Re: PROPOSAL: 4SQRP TO ND SPRINT

Jay Bromley <jayw5jay@...>
 

HI Uncle Phil,

Well if that doesn’t work, you might consider the K3UK sched page.  There are two active hams in ND that frequent the LOTW part of K3UK’s site.  One I am very familiar with is KD4POJ, yes he is 4th area call in ND.  Dwayne is active mainly on two modes CW and RTTY.  The other ham I don’t remember his call, but funny he doesn’t do CW, but does do SSB and has been on some of the JT modes.  Both guys are first class at trying to help hams get ND.  Sadly I don’t remember any active QRPers in that state, but I am sure there are a few?? 

 

Gud luck and 73 de w5jay/jay..

Hello 4SQRPers...8/9/14

I'm proposing a one or 2 hour sprint in a couple of weeks
between 4SQRP members but to include hams in ND. Let's call
it the "4SQRP to ND Sprint." I can make contact with
ND coordinators to set this up. What say yea? I'd be willing
to keep score and report back.

I must admit that I have a motive; I'm short one state toward WAS;
yup, you guessed it, ND.

What do ya say? What time of day might be best? 7-9 PM and a weekday?
Proposed CQ  e.g 4SND K, exchange: CALL, RST, ST, NAME.
Any contacts between 4S and ND stations worth 2 points,
all other contacts 1 point

Unc Phil, W0XI

Maybe make it a monthly event with the "most wanted state." However I happen to agree with ND right now, because I too need it to finish one WAS. I worked two ND stations in the past couple of weeks, but apparently neither use LoTW :(

I was just checking my single band and mode WAS numbers for a triple play and actually KS-OK-AR-MO, show up pretty regularly also. I also finished two WAS awards this week. LOTS of awards out there, just not enough coordination between electronic logging services. That one the last one was NE.

Nets also do not upload their contacts. That could attract more people to a net that did, especially on the close in states.

I don't know how to use all of these reverse beacon things, so I just have to depend on finding them on and working them. Seems like I also lack TX to confirm on some band or mode on LoTW to finish yet another band or mode. I am working on LoTW and eQSL awards both. Until I get a few of them whittled down, I am not going to start chasing any new ones. I also "so far" am on track for the Centennial WAS award.

Is there any place, where a person can set up schedules or make requests for states ? I think such a web site would be VERY popular.

After 49 years as a ham and having worked thousands and thousands of stations, last year I set ALL of my logs back to zero, to see what it is like for a new ham today to get these awards. Also for my own benefit, since I have never chased and collected any paper. Today, in fact, just a few minutes ago I just reached 1,000 confirmed contacts on LoTW.

Hi Scott,
 
There's Sam's Photofacts at

BTW, it was nice to work you on 20m yesterday. You were a new one for me toward the "W25". Thanks.

There used to be a company in North or South Dakota that had schematics for nearly everything. Maybe someone has the email address?

Question about a qrp rig

Tom Crow
 

Hello to everyone in the group.

I recently purchased some qrp radios that belonged to Paul Daulton (K5WMS). (silent key)

One of those is a Centennial SSB (REV 1) 40 meter radio, which was designed by Mr. Daulton. 

My question is, does anyone know where I may be able to obtain a schematic for this rig? I have googled and binged and haven't gotten anywhere.

Was it ever in production (it appears he had the board made by Far Circuits, haven't been able to find a valid email address)?

I have seen the schematic for the 80 meter SSB/CW rig, but its a good bit different.

this one is SSB (no CW)


I appreciate any and all assistance on this


Tom

DON'T FORGET!!!

The Second Sunday Sprint is tomorrow, 7:00 - 9:00 PM CDT. If you've misplaced the rules, they are posted on 4SQRP.COM, under "4SQRP On Air Activities". And they haven't changed lately.

Good luck in the contest!

Re: Suffix/Prefix

Jeremy Utley
 

In most cases, it's not the ITU who defines whether it's a prefix or suffix, it's entirely defined by the treaty by which you are given reciprocal privledges, or what the "hosting" country designates.

Just as an example, a BC, Canada ham in the US would sign VE7XXX/W7 - because that's what the treaty allowing reciprocal privledges between the US and Canada defines.  For CEPT, or IARP, those treaties specify that the "hosting" country comes before the callsign - I.E. G/NQ0M or whatever.  If you're not under reciprocal agreements, the "host" country can either assign you a full callsign from their own block, or they can say that you use a Prefix/HomeCall.

At least, that's the way I understand it!

I believe you are correct. It was about that time the ITU changed the international regulations to require the prefix rather than the suffix.

I'm pretty sure I remember, when I was a youngster on the air (1960s), stations would add the country identifier after their callsign: K4AXF/HC3.  It wasn't until the 1990s that I started hearing: HC3/K4AXF.  Or is my memory faulty?

Re: /mm this morning

Donald Sanders
 

Correct, that is why I sign HC4/W4BWS.
However, as I read and understand the way the FCC stated the Part 97 rule, 
If you add a prefix or suffix that is assigned to another country it is not legal.
