PVRC NEWSLETTER - DECEMBER 2001

PVRC CENTRAL CHRISTMAS PARTY IS/WAS ON MONDAY DECEMBER 10TH.
In the event this issue arrives before the 10th; details follow the SCORES on

2001 SWEEPSTAKES AWARD NEWS

Congratulations to everyone who contributed to the massive PRC effort in this
year's Sweepstakes. With the log deadlines still weeks away, our preliminary
totals have already far surpassed SMC's winning effort last year. Will it be
enough? We'll find out, but in the meantime it's time to give out the
intra-club awards that were described in the October Newsletter.

For some of the awards N4ZR needs help, because figuring out who qualified
isn't obvious from score reporting alone. In some regions, we understand
region chairmen are already collecting and organizing their members'
information to make a joint submission, which is fine, but in others it'll be
up to you. Check with your region chairman if in doubt.

If you were a first-time contributor to the club score in Sweepstakes, or if
you want to be considered for the Top Comeback Award (best CW and phone scores
by operator(s) who haven't contributed a score since 1995 or before), N4ZR
needs to hear from you, because looking through 5 or more years of SS results
to determine who *isn't* there isn't practical. Similarly, if you didn't
report your operating time to W2GG, Pete needs to hear from you in order to
determine which level of the PRC Live Wire Award you qualified for. E-mail
him at [email protected] or send USPS mail to him at Rt. 1, Box 459,
Kearneysville, WV 25430.

IMPROVEMENT OF THE NEWSLETTER DISTRIBUTION by Dick Wilder, K3DI

The distribution of the PVRC NEWSLETTER by the USPS has been erratic. I hope
to improve the USPS service by asking for your help and then by improving my
mailing preparation.

You can help by looking at the cover of this issue and let W2GG know of any
changes in your mailing address even if, for now, the USPS seems to deliver
your mail with an old zip code, without your apartment number, or without
indicating you're on North whatever street. And, if you send Bob an address
change, please include the ZIP+4 (9-digit zip code), if known. We will catch
any missing ZIP+4 codes from www.usps.gov.

In preparation for this mailing, I borrowed the official club dBase-III file
from Bob and upgraded some half of the records found with 5-digit so this
entire mailing went out with only ZIP+4 codes. Various groups of Newsletter
were rubber banded in bundles and labeled per USPS publications found on
www.usps.gov and then placed into postal sorting trays that I take to the Post
Office.

The following is some background which has motivated upgrading addresses and
mailing preparations.

One of my frustrations is that my source of postal information, the Arnold PO
who issues our postage imprint, has supplied little and sometimes wrong
information to me over the years. I even had to go to another PO to get the
colored bundle stickers. Though the postage rate will still be 25.3 cents for
up to 3.3 ounces, improved handling can be expected.

My experience is that the USPS handles our PRSRT STD mail (formerly called
bulk mail) with automation and bounces mail that the computer can't handle.
An example of an inept computer algorithm is the rejection of Newsletter
addressed in the form of:
PO Box 73, 88 HAM ST,
HOMETOWN, MD 21111-0073

The computer rejected this by application two postal rules. (1) Both the PO
Box and Street may be given but delivery will be the address closest to the
city. (2) The ZIP code and address must agree.

The rejection was because 0073 was not the correct ZIP for 88 HAM ST; 0073 was
actually was ZIP code for the PO Box. If 88 HAM ST was deleted, it would have
been delivered to the PO BOX. If 0073 was deleted, it would have been
delivered to 88 HAM ST. Obviously, a human could have easily routed this
piece of mail.

Another piece of mail was rejected because the apartment number was not given.
It was a complex with four apartments in each building with all four boxes at
the same location. A human could have easily handled this piece.

About once a year, a Newsletter is rejected for no apparent reason. I then
request that the clerk at Arnold to resend the Newsletter in an USPS postage
free envelop. Dealing with the USPS and the PRSRT STD imprint is an ongoing
frustrating experience.

Two unrelated notes are:

1. The data upgrading and development of an improved mailing preparation has
caused this issue to go to the printer one week late.

2. The January issue will be one week late due to family holiday activity. I
expect to take it to the printer on Monday, January 7th.

using Delorme Topo Quads for assessing terrain.

SWVA NOVEMBER MINUTES
by Michael Barts, N4GU

The Southwest Virginia Chapter of PVRC met November 2, 2001 at Shoney's
Restaurant in Salem, VA. In attendance were W4MAN, W0MAN, K1GG, N4GU, K4IQ,
W4YE, KC9LC, K1SO, WM3T, and KF4OKG.

There was a lively discussion of the Field Day results. At least three
different local clubs were represented at the meeting and all had good
showings. W4YE promoted several 'handicapping' schemes to compare scores from
groups of different sizes and categories, all with the ultimate outcome that
his Franklin County club bested the rest of us. The K4VPI group consisting
mostly of PVRC members (N4EL, N4GU, and KF4YLM) scored a 5th in 2A-Battery.

The chapter was well represented in CQWW phone with activity from K1GG, K1SO,
W4YE, N4GU, W4MAN, K4IQ and WM3T (+KF4OKG). W4YE and WM3T complained of lots
of noise during the contest. K1GG commented on fading on 10m. WM3T
complained about all the confusion his call causes. There are probably a
number of stations that think they worked KM3T, YM3T, or M3T that will be
surprised when the UBN results are run. Copy what you hear, not what
MASTER.DAT says.

We beat the drums preparing for Sweepstakes. W4YE, K4IQ, K1GG, N4GU, and
KC9LC plan to be active during cw SS (tomorrow!). All in attendance plan to
be on for phone SS.

K1SO won an FT-100 at the Roanoke Hamfest back in August in a raffle. Jerry
was complaining bitterly about having to buy an antenna so that he can go
mobile. He received little sympathy.

W4YE announced that chapter member 5B4AFM/N1KH received a $1000 scholarship
from QCWA for this academic year, congratulations Stavros!

The next meeting of the Southwest Virginia chapter will be November 30, 6:00
PM at the Golden Corral restaurant in Roanoke.

SWVA CHAPTER MEETS AT ROANOKE HAMFEST
by Jerry Haislip, K1SO

The SWVA chapter of PVRC met on August 4, 2001, at the Roanoke Valley Hamfest.
Members present at the Hamfest were, SWVA chapter Coordinator and Trustee of
PVRC, John/K4IQ, members Buddy/W4YE, Mark/N2QT, Mike/N4GU, Anthony/WM3T,
Randy/KC9LC (who was seen leaving the Hamfest with some nice old equipment),
AB4YZ/Ray and K1SO/Jerry. Guest at the meeting was David/KK4WW from
Foundation for Amateur Radio Service (F.A.I.R.S.). David just returned from
his trip operating as J79WW.

With all of the busy schedules of members this seemed to be a great place to
hold the summer meeting. Contesting results were discussed concerning PVRC
ARRL 10 meter event. The high placement of John/K4IQ in the 160 meter Contest
and upcoming events.

Lots of the members of SWVA - PVRC chapter took part in their local Field Day
events. WM3T/Anthony talked about the great scores on CW the Franklin County
ARC had during the summer weekend. With CW ops like W4YE/Buddy, the scores
had to be good! AB4YZ/Ray and Jerry/K1SO took part in the FD event of the
Roanoke Valley ARC and felt the scores were somewhat higher than last year.
It will be interesting to see just how the clubs did in the annual event.

The next meeting of the SWVA chapter was not set and information will be sent
out by e-mail.

PVRC SOUTHERN MD REGIONAL MEETING by Barry Shapiro, WR3Z

The meeting was held on Monday November 5th at Adams Ribs in Prince Frederick,
MD. In attendance were Barry WR3Z, Mark KD4D and XYL Elaine N3PQW, Bob KF3AA,
Chuck N3WZR, Tom K3DSP, and Wayne N1WR.

WR3Z operated at W3LPL for CQWW Phone as one of the 40M ops. He also was part
of the WR3L multi operation at WR3L for SS CW. Barry plans to single op at
N1WR for SS Phone.

KD4D was part of the W3LPL CQWW Phone team as one of the 20M ops. Mark also
gave SS CW a try for the first time in 14 years. Mark operated single op from
the QTH of N3HBX and scored $173K for PVRC. Mark will be operating at W3LPL
and N3HBX for the upcoming contests.

KF3AA operated part of the CQWW Phone contest and has been very active with
the DXCC chasing during off times.

N3WZR has gotten the contest bug back and is working his way back into
operating some contests. He single oped CQWW Phone from the QTH of N1WR and
scored 722K for the club. Chuck is working to put back together a station in
Lusby, MD.

K3DSP has operated parts of all the major contests for PVRC. Tom has been
successful in using a "semi permanent" heavy duty rocket launcher and a recent
beam addition to provide scores for PVRC. These include 10K for a part time
SS CW effort and 576K for CQWW Phone. Of note (and congrats) also go out to
Tom - in approximately 2 years of DXing, Tom has received confirmation from
200 countries! Great job!

N1WR provided 127K for the club for SS CW and hosted N3WZR for CQWW Phone.
Wayne has been instrumental in setting up and providing maintenance for the
packet backbone from W3LPL to K4JA via W3YOZ and N1WR. Wayne also has
supported our local club in providing packet demonstrations as well as being
the VE testing coordinator in Southern MD. Happy Holidays to all.

PVRC CENTRAL CHRISTMAS PARTY - DEC 10TH

I don't expect you'll receive this issue before the 10th.

This issue will go to the printer at 9:30 AM on Monday morning December 3rd
and expected to be mailed late on the 6th or on the 7th. I will be surprised
if you receive it by the 10th. But, just in case the USPS gives a Christmas
present by providing us with SERVICE, here is the info for the party extracted
from material from K4VV.

The Christmas Dinner will again be at the Olive Garden on Route 7 in Vienna
again this year. The event is scheduled for Monday, December 10, 2001. We
will begin to gather in the bar about 5:30 or 6:00 PM for the early arrivers,
and migrate to the dinner area about 6:30 to 7:00 PM, and get seated and begin
ordering about 7:00 PM. The program will begin about 8 or 8:15 PM, featuring
Awards and a speaker TBD.

To sign up please give me an email ([email protected]) or pass a packet message to
N3OC. Let's talk up the dinner with our friends. Recall that family or other
interested guests are welcome.
