PRESS RELEASE FROM WORLDSPACE CORP (plus edited material)

Robert Peterson (W3YY), received a promotion to the position of
Vice President, Broadcast Engineering at WorldSpace Corporation,
a satellite broadcasting company serving Africa and Asia. During
Bob's recent travels, he met with and entertained several members
of the Beijing DX Club, including BA1HAM, BA1FB, BA1RB, BD1CC,
BA1AJ/AB7PY, BA1MK, and BA1DU. He was also in Singapore during
the CQWW phone contest, but efforts to find a guest-op
opportunity failed.

PVRCNC MEETING FOR DECEMBER 6, 2001 by Guy Olinger, K2AV

Attending K2AV Guy, KE4GY Frank, N4TL Tom, AA4NC Will, K4HA Bob,
NX9T Jeff, K4NYS Chuck, K07X Alan, W2CS Gary, N4CW Bert, K3KO
Brian, N4AF Howie, K7GM Rick, K4QPL Jim.

Meeting called to semblance of order at 6 pm. Much discussion of
SS. Was only a matter of time until someone (different soul
every year) came out with the now mandatory standard "Barefoot
Sucks!" remark.

Good to see a contingent from the far eastern hinterlands:
Car-pooling K7GM and N4AF in attendance. Rick is keeping his
ritzy (and ham unfriendly) digs in Greenville and moving his
heavy artillery to N4AF to help prop up the NY4A wars. This
apparently includes amps, towers and antennas. Is this turning
into W3LPL south?

Got into discussion of 40m 5 element wide-spaced quad going up at
N4AF. It's strung from a catenary between towers, but if on a
boom it would be a 168' boom. Preliminary versions are remarkably
better than the shorty 40 at 130'. Works through to Europe during
daylight. K2AV using professional versions of modeling software
to work through issues. Will have a near-final version for the
ARRL DX CW. Aren't new toys fun?

NX9T has added 80 Inv Vee and 40 rotatable dipole. Some good
scores from over there, too!

K4HA has new 4 el's on 10 & 15 up.

AA4NC is becoming heavily invested in lightning arrestors. After
last year, this is a surprise? He needs spark gaps to protect the
spark gaps.

N4TL his a Personal Best in SS CW. Bert likes Tom's 756 Pro. You
guys should run coax between your houses.

K2AV has got lot of stuff buried in trench out to tower. 1 1/4
hardline, 5/8 hardline, controls, etc. Now to hook it up to stuff
in the house. Unfortunately, continuing illness of Mother-in-law
in western NC has occupied lots of time (as of writing, she had
passed away).

N4CW is writing a new book: Blowing up bias caps for Dummies.

KO7X working Saturdays, but will be on in the 160 tests with a
"mongrel dipole". Not real clear what it is a cross of. Search on
Google does not turn up any hits. That makes it the KO7X Mongrel
Dipole. Hopefully that's a 160 signal that's a cross between a
pit bull and a great Dane. K4QPL finally getting the SO2R box to
working. Think he replaced half the parts.

WW4M did real well at Brian's for the SS.

There must not be any places for Howie to go out east for junk
deserts that Lynn doesn't hear about it (don't you just love
small towns). Went out for desert FOUR (count 'em, 4) times.

Meeting deteriorated into misc. technical debate and scientific
BS around 7:30. Rumored that Howie took his fifth desert on the
way out but no way to independently confirm. K7GM isn't talking.

Next Meeting 7 Feb 02, 5:30 BS, 6 something Meeting, Ryan's
Family Steakhouse, Crossroads Plaza, Cary NC. (The January
PVRCNC meeting was canceled due to a winter storm.

CENTRAL VA CC MEETING JANUARY 2002 by John Youell, W4TNX

We had about 21 members and guests for dinner at the "Crazy
Greek" before the meeting. I think this may be a record, as we
overflowed to 5 tables! Dinner topics included the WX, 6 meter DX
and the excellent "2nd Peak" propagation on the high bands.

After dinner, we relocated to the normal meeting site and were
joined by several others. Sorry, but I do not have the sign-in
sheet by call sign and don't want to challenge this over 50 mind
with memory recall! Let me say that all the "regulars" were there
and several guests.

Some highlights:
* AC (W4HJ) had Frostfest tickets for the 2/10 event. Thanks
AC, as this will save us standing in the infamous (but
appropriately named) Frostfest line to get in! Note the date
change, as this is usually the Sunday of the VHF contest in
January.
* Bob (W4DR) gave an update on the status of the meeting site
and it looks like we will continue to have use of the Staples
Mill Church site for at least the rest of this "season".
* Bob (W4MYA) presented a "PVRC 5 Million" plaque to Ronnie
(WU4G).
* Packet updates were given by Ronnie (WU4G), Dennis (N4DEN),
Bob (W4MYA), Ralph (N4EHJ). Thanks to Paul (K4JA) for the
donation of additional license features to the AR Cluster
software for the club station, W4ML.
* Bob (W4DR) encouraged everyone to update their DX and band
country totals for the start of this year's club competition for
the "most improved" awards (band totals and % of needed band
countries).
* Dennis (N4DEN) will look into relocating the CVCC WEB
materials from Kyle's (WA4PGM) website (which will soon be lost
and included some tracking tools for these club awards).
* The program for the night was the East Timor videotape, which
was nicely done.

MEETING MINUTES - CARROLL COUNTY GROUP PVRC,
by John V. Chesley, AK3Z

On January 11, 2002, members of the Carroll County PVRC Group met
at Stables Restaurant in Westminster, MD for dinner and
discussion. In attendance were Dan Atchison, N3ND, Steve
Beckman, N3SB, Dave Blanchard, N3II, John Chesley, AK3Z, Stuart
Littman, K3STU (ex WB3P), Jim Nitzberg, WX3B, and Steve
Scheinberg, W3SY. The meeting started at 7:00 PM, over various
delights such as ribs, crab cakes, roast beef, and shrimp
cocktail along with some really good beer. The food was
excellent, and enjoyed in a fun, casual atmosphere that was
approved by all. The group would like to make this a regular
monthly meeting place in the future. After the meeting, the
group went over to AK3Z to have some fun checking out equipment,
antennas, and to further discuss contesting activities.

Dan, N3ND has been working on a few antenna projects and
investigating some possible new contest locations for his QTH.

Dave, N3II has been having loads of fun on 6 meters and catching
all of the latest openings on the bands. As one of the more
experienced 6 meter operators in the group, he was happy to offer
advice on antennas and equipment for the band. He is currently
using a Cushcraft beam antenna (height about 45 feet) with an
Icom 706 and has worked many countries and zones with only 100
watts.

Steve, N3SB has been enjoying his new toys, all purchased over
the past month and a half: a Kenwood TS950SD and a Kenwood
TS950SDX. He discussed the strengths and weaknesses of both
radios and has decided that both are worth keeping. He will also
be increasing his mobile activity using the Yaesu FT100 and Heil
HC4 boom mic.

John, AK3Z has been doing a lot of antenna work every weekend.
AK3Z now has a single elevated vertical that operates on 80, 40,
and 30 meters and is about 33 feet tall. Operation on 40 and 30
is great, but 80 could stand some improvement. An inverted L is
now in place that will operate as 3/8 wavelength on 160 and 3/4
wavelength on 80m. Switching and matching arrangements should be
completed by 1/19. More antennas for the low bands (40 and 80)
are planned. Equipment additions include an Icom 756 Pro and a
Kenwood TSB2000.

Stu, K3STU has been using a TS850 and getting lots of operation
in on 40m CW. More antennas and on the air activities are
planned as he returns from a long period of inactivity in the
hobby. Our impression is that he is really glad to be back.

Jim, WX3B is considering and extra AB577 at his location with a
beam antenna for 10. He is also looking for one more contest
radio to replace the Yaesu FT990 that he recently sold.

Steve, W3SY has a great location in Harford county with about 4
acres of land. He currently has an AB577 with a tribander that
was recently installed. His 160 meter horizontal loop is no
more. He has no plans to re-install it but is interested in more
antennas as time and money permit-possibly some beverages.


CENTRAL MEETING MINUTES FOR JANUARY by Brian McGinnes, N3OC

The central meeting was held in Temple Hills, MD at the Church of
the Nativity on January 14 at 7:30pm. Several had dinner
beforehand at Topolino's. In attendance were: KE3Q, N3UM, K4VV,
W3ZZ, W3AZ, W3DQ, W3TOM, K3ZO, N3OC, N3HXQ, WR3L, W3HVQ.

N3OC gave the president's report. The passing of both KE3Q's and
W3LPL's father were noted. Several PVRCers were able to pay
their respects to Rich's father.

The preliminary results indicate SMC has again won the SMC gavel,
even though we beat their last year's winning score. We believe
it boils down to number of logs submitted, and we fall short
there. It was noted that the "central" region was a particularly
poor performer, hi hi.

A lengthy discussion we held concerning SS participation. Most
felt what was lacking most was some form of personal contact
before the contest, probably in the form of a phone call.

The annual holiday dinner last month was a success, thanks to the
effort of K4VV, with help from others bringing AV equipment, etc.
Thanks to all who made the event a success. All comments so far
about the food and service at the Olive Garden have been
positive.

The new club officers and trustees are in place now. The only
change is the addition of W3PP and ND3A as trustees. There are a
number of new issues I will be bringing before the trustees
including recruitment of a new president and VP for 2003.

We have decided to add WAE to the 5m award starting in 2002.

A discussion was held concerning ARRL's movement to cut
production costs of QST be removing detailed section and contest
information. A number of members have objected to this. As a
result, I initiated a query on the contest club president's
reflector to see if anyone had any similar issues with their
membership. This evolved into a discussion among the presidents
and the eventual document that was presented to the ARRL board
being drafted by YCCC's president. It was signed by all 12
contest club presidents and we hope to be able to work with the
ARRL to find a solution.

A reminder to everyone to list your club as "Potomac Valley Radio
Club" on your logs. Do NOT use "PVRC" anymore. The robots are
checking this field in an attempt to automate the tabulation of
the club scores, and the process needs an exact match on the club
name.

Jack, K4VV gave a brief VP's report. Jack is back in business
after some surgery and doing well. Dave, WR3L gave the
treasurer's report. We are sound financially, and keep the
donations coming. PVRC will donate $50 to the PI4COM station
reconstruction. A suggestion was made to convert the newsletter
to an electronic format to save money. N3OC said we would look
at it again, but in the past the interest was limited. In any
event, we would probably need to purchase a software package like
Adobe or something to fully convert to an electronic format.
(Don't look for any changes anytime soon.)

The upcoming meeting schedule was discussed. The February
meeting is in Vienna, Va. The next Maryland meeting will be
March and we would like to have some kind of presentation. After
some discussion, it was decided to ask N3RR to give a
presentation on grounding at the March meeting, which he has
agreed to do.

Editors note: N3RR did an article on grounding for the June/July
2001 issue of this Newsletter. A summary of that article, with
references to his web site (http://www.erols.com/n3rr) will
appear as the CONTESTING column in the March 2002 issue of the
FAR AUTOCALL.

PS: I'm always looking for articles of interest to contesters
for publication in either or both this newsletter and AUTOCALL.

SWVA CHAPTER MEETING MINUTES 1/18/02 by Mike Barts, N4GU

The Southwest Virginia chapter met January 18, 2002, at the
Roanoker Restaurant in Roanoke, VA. This was the holiday
gathering for the chapter. There was a total of 18 in attendance.
Present were K4IQ, K1SO, N4GU, K1GG, KZ1A (visitor), N4EL,
KA4BSA, W4JAM, W0MAN, WM3T, KF4OKG, W4YE and XYL, WA4BKW, and
N4JED and XYL and their two children.

After a wonderful dinner, everyone gave a brief introduction and
update on their current activities.

K1SO has been running VA counties, driving for AB4YZ during a
recent outing.

K4IQ has been traveling to UT-land on business quite a bit the
last year but has managed to find time to erect a new 160m
vertical that he's anxious to try in the upcoming contests.

W4YE is celebrating his 50th year of being licensed.
Congratulations, Buddy! Thanks to help from AEP, his line noise
is much better. He can actually hear signals on the bands now.

WA4BKW had a lot of fun working the Lighthouse contest. They've
hired some help at work now so maybe he can get a few contest
weekends off. Bill also has a new Jupiter that he likes.

N4EL got on and had fun in the ARRL 160m contest for his first
time on the band.

W4JAM and W0MAN have been doing antenna work and have added an
AL1500 to the lineup. W4JAM put in showings for CQWW phone and
ARRL 10m.

WM3T was busy this fall doing both modes of CQWW and both SS
weekends, scoring a sweep on both modes.

KF4OKG has been providing the better half of the WM3T multiop
efforts and is looking forward to her favorite contest - WPX.

N4JED was on for both ARRL 10m and 160m contests. He complained
that K1GG was too loud on 160m for him.

KZ1A, Mac, is a refugee from YCCC now living in Staunton, VA.
This was his first meeting with PVRC. He is an experienced
contester and we look forward to his participation with PVRC.
K1GG did all the ARRL contests last year. He finally has a
Beverage antenna for 160m that works, despite that its not
straight. The local paper had a shot of Gordon's tower with
lights and a star on top for Christmas - as if the neighbors
hadn't noticed the 150 footer before.

Thanks to Anthony, WM3T, the Southwest VA chapter now has its own
email reflector up and running. This should make it easier to
keep everyone informed about meetings and other chapter business.

NORTHWEST MEETING NOTES FOR JANUARY
by Ed Steeble, K3IXD, Chairman, NW Region

The NW region met at Paradise Grill in Frederick, MD on 15
January 2002. In attendance were: W4XP, K3SX, W6NRJ, W3KHZ,
K2PLF, N4MM, K8OQL, W2YE, N3HBX, K3TZV, N3VOP, AA3XZ, K3ZO, W3ZZ,
N8II, N3YDT, W8ZA, K3TM, K3SKE, AD3F, K3IXD, K3LP, K3NA, and
KT4W.

We had 24 attendees this time. They came from MD, PA, VA, and WV.
My guess is they represented five different PVRC regions.

At this meeting we didn't go around the table as we usually do;
instead, to allow plenty of time for discussions about the emails
flying around the internet about removing contest results from
QST we:
1) voted in a new member, AA3XZ, Brian Kent.
2) listened to W3ZZ say there was no new news from CQ; however he
did remind us to get the logs in on time and only via email. He
said the received logs are "cleaner" now. And we learned that
K3ZO volunteered to type the CQ contest logs for anyone without
computer/email so the Spanish CQ magazine printed that and Fred
received 50 EA logs. It took him three days to enter the data.
3) Then we spent the rest of the meeting hearing from N4MM about
the statement that ARRL may delete contest results from QST. John
said:
A) The league finances are tight. There has been a deficit
the past three years. The league has hired a new financial person
and revenue is up.
B) Some of the emails we have read are based upon leaked and
distorted information.
C) If ARRL reduces the size of QST, it has to be in 16 page
increments.
D) The reduction in the number of pages in QST is
recommended by the Administration and Finance committee to the
board of directors.
4) From the floor it was suggested:
A) That ARRL hold forums at hamfests to discuss what to do.
B) That ARRL first put scores and write-up on the web and
then, after a year trial period, reconsider how much of the
contest results/write-up to remove from QST, if any.
C) If the scores were on the web, software could be used to
extract and format data that is more useful in planning strategy
and comparing scores between similar stations; it would save
digging through the scores.
D) That print copies of QST could be replaced by a "pdf"
file (i.e. delivered via the internet).
E) That web pages can not be read in the bathroom, in most
homes.

John, N4MM, did an excellent job of explaining the situation and
then answering all the questions.

The February 19th meeting will be at the Paradise Grill, 1275 W.
Patrick Street, Frederick, MD. It is in Frederick Shoppers World,
across the street from PEP Boys. (301) 682-6066.

The NW Region meetings are on the third Tuesday of the month.
Most arrive about 6PM for dinner and informal discussions,
the meeting begins at 7:15 PM.

LAUREL REGION MINUTES 01/23/02 by Pud Reaver, W3YD

Let me introduce Laurel to PVRC. Several years ago Rich/KE3Q
briefed the Laurel club on PVRC and made us a regional club
member. Although we have a small cadre of folks very interested
in contesting, most of us did not have stations, so that we had
to break up existing home stations to make a "club" station.
That has changed, and now the "LARC is in the hunt!" at W3LRC.
With Kevin/W3DAD and Pud/W3YD as driving members, Brian/N3OC has
re-blessed our outfit, and we had an organizational meeting at
the LARC banquet in Dec-01. Eight members signed the roster.

On Jan 23-02 we had our second meeting in conjunction with the
LARC monthly meeting. The below have the prerequisite two
meetings and will be submitted to the Central region for voting.
(LARC/PVRC is not ten strong yet, but I think we will be after a
few more meetings.)

After a very informative program on RFI by K3RFI/PEPCO, the
PVRCers convened and Pud gave a short run-down on PVRC, and such
as the dues and meeting obligations. LARC/PVRC currently plans
to hold formal meetings during or after the LARC meetings of each
first quarter of the month (ie Jan, Apr, July, Oct); and maybe
some special meetings or luncheons in between. Of course everyone
is welcome.

Beside Pud and Kevin, who were members of the Central region
already, the following five folks will be submitted for
membership: Frank "HD" Scott/K3HDM; Jim Cross/WI3N; Dan
Blasberg/KA8YPY; Ed Rummel/KB3DVC; and Dennis Fitzgerald/KT3D.
The following have been to one meeting, and will be voted on
after their next: WV3D, N3TZA, N5XNS, and NX3K. We were joined
by W3BE who mentioned that he has been a member for about thirty
years ... Pud promptly turned the gavel over to John.

Pud/W3YD (w3yd@arrl.net) is currently the POC, with Kevin/W3DAD
(karber@smart.net) a step behind. We're all looking forward to
having some good times contesting, either as individual entities,
or with W3LRC.


TI7/N4MO IN ARRL DX CW AND SSB:

Ron Uthus, N4MO, reports that he is now getting settled in Costa
Rica and will be on during the ARRL DX contests with low power
and wires. But, he'll return home prior to WPX this year.
