POTOMAC VALLEY RADIO CLUB NEWSLETTER, FEBRUARY 2003

Message from Jack Hammett, K4VV, President of PVRC

Happy New Year to everyone in PVRC. I am honored to be intrusted
with the role as president.

PVRC continues to evolve and expand its reach outward while
growing our stations and engaging new members. The regional
cells of activity are pushing our frontiers to the edge of the
circle and beyond. Many of our individual members are building
skills and systems to be more competitive. Our champion
contesters are reaching new levels of excellence while setting
the pace and giving us all the example and the mentoring to push
ahead. The regional leaders are also building a social fabric
and spirit and interest with meetings and antenna projects and
mutual commitment.

I am excited about the progress you have created in PVRC.
Congratulations to the team of officers and trustees and the many
volunteers and especially the operators who put the points on the
board and the station builders and champions who lead the way.
PVRC is evolving and getting stronger, but our competition is
getting tougher too. I look forward to working with you to build
our capability and competitiveness--with some fun along the way.


EDITORIAL; WHERE IS THIS NEWSLETTER GOING?
by Dick Wilder, K3DI, editor

Increased cost of reproduction and postage has caused many radio
clubs to switch from postal mail to Email for delivery of their
newsletters. However, for the clubs I've observed, they had paid
either 37 or 60 cents postage and usually carried little or no
advertising. Conversely, we pay only 27.8 cents postage for up
to 3.3 ounces with advertising revenue covering more than half of
our costs. The club newsletter is now positioned to generate a
profit! But, I have found that I don't have the time to give
good service to advertisers and I see a considerable need in
having an advertising manager to give that good service to our
advertisers. Recent experience has been that as other Ham
newsletters are "bailing out" and advertisers are rushing to the
few remaining paper newsletters. Please notice that we added two
additional advertisers this month!
Please discuss this at meetings and on our reflector and give
feedback to the board. Should the PVRC NEWSLETTER become a club
profit center, augment the club income, and cover the current
donation short fall? Or, should the PVRC NEWSLETTER go
electronic?


TREASURERS REPORT by Dave Baugher, WR3L, Treasurer

PVRC would like to thank W8JVP, W8ZA, KT4W, N4MO, W4HM, WA4BKW,
N3BF, W3YOZ, W3DAD, AA4KD, W4RX, WA7LT, K4UX, ND3A, K9GY, and
K4FPF for the donation.

Please don't forget we still need donations to help pay for the
newsletter, awards, insurance and a few other necessary expenses.
Our income for 2002 was approximately $3000 less then 2001. Our
expenses were $1000 less so it left us with a net loss of about
$2000. This is not an immediate problem, as the treasury is
fine. We don't need a profit but we do need to be stable.

We no longer get credit from ARRL for renewals, so please send
them direct when you receive them.

Badges are still a problem with our "Badge Man". He says he
needs a part for his equipment that he cant find and at this time
can only make the generic badge. I'll keep after him to so he
knows we need the blanks.


CARROLL COUNTY PVRC NEWS by Jim Nitzberg, WX3B

VP5LP DXPEDITION. Carroll County PVRC Members going on VP5
DX-Pedition! It is with a great deal of exitement that I
announce my first ever DX-Pedition/Vacation to North Caicos (VP5)
during February 12th to February 19th!

The following PVRC members are traveling: Jim Nitzberg, WX3B;
David Collingham, K3LP; and Steve Beckman, N3SB. We also have
good friend and experience contester Larry Pace, N7DD from
Arizona joining us.

We will be active on all bands before and after the ARRL DX CW
contest, and we will be signing VP5/{Our Home Call Sign} during
non-contest times. During the contest, we are going to operate a
Multi-Two using the contest Call VP5LP (I wonder where we got
that idea?). QSL route is via Terry Hines, N4ZH. Many thanks to
Terry and NCDXA for his assistance with this important job.

Please work us on all bands, and spot us! I hope to hear many of
you on the other side of the pileup for the first time.


NORTHWEST MEETING NOTES, DEC 2002 By Ed Steeble, K3IXD

The NW region met at City Buffet in Frederick, MD on 17 December
2002. In attendance were: K3IXD, W8ZA, K8OQL, N4MM, K2UOP,
W3EKT, N3VOP, AD3F, K3DNE, WD3A, W3LPL, K4FTO, W3KHZ, K2PLF,
N3OK, N3HBX, W0YR, and N8II.

The business part of the meeting:
1) We voted on the applications of K4FTO, Art. Welcome to PVRC
and we look forward to your contributions in the club competition
contests.
2) N4MM reported that the DXCC desk is now processing
submissions dated September 27th.
3) N4MM said the January QST is out and ARRL is looking for feed
back on the new style, contest write up. The contest details are
on the web.
4) There were inquiries about the status of the PVRC shirts,
etc., orders. No one present knew the answer. (K3IXD will try
to remember to call K3SKE before the next meeting and get an
update.)

Around the table:

K3IXD, Ed said he got his repaired MFJ 434 voice keyer back from
the factory just in time to give it a work out in the 10m
contest. He also operated for about an hour in the PSK-31 Death
Match Contest. In networking the W3SO computers, he found out
the later releases of CT are able to direct a gab messages to a
given position (end the message with CNTL-Enter instead of
Enter).

N8II, Jeff has been in a lot of contests this season, all low
power except for the 160m contest.

W0YR, Mike was glad to be in town on a third Tuesday so he could
attend another NW meeting. He visited ON4UN and showed pictures
of the 3 el 80m beam installed there. Mike was at WRTC and said
everyone should try to attend one of the events sometime.

N3HBX, John lost four antennas in the ice storm.

N3OK, Scott is doing more contesting now that he has joined PVRC.
He has his wire antennas on pulleys and uses paint cans, filled
with sand, as counter weights. No problems with the ice.

K2PLF, Marty said he returned his MFJ 434 voice keyer to the
store for a replacement, then had to send that one back for
another. He had sent the second replacement to MFJ for repairs.
He was on for the 160m and 10m contests. He dropped his wire
antennas and as a result didn't have any icing problems. He said
that N4RV is looking for operators for the ARRL DX CW and SSB
contests.

W3KHZ, Art reported that family illnesses have limited his
operating time. His 2m and 6m beams are still on the ground.
He doesn't think the weather is bad enough yet to put up a
antennas.

K4FTO, Art didn't have any problems with the ice since his
antennas are in the attic. He said a neighbor is having some 2m
cable interference problems. The cable company came out and
after the checks said all was OK. Art was advised by several
present to enlist the aid of the FCC.

W3LPL, Frank said K4ZA operated the 10m contest from his QTH. He
has been remodeling his basement ham shack.

K3DNE, Ed operated 10m and SS contests from home. He ran high
power in the 10m contest this year and said it was a lot easier
to make QSOs. He has a new 2m amp. Ed said he uses Writelog's
interface to the computer sound card for voice keying.

WD3A, Tom did CQWW CW from home. He said Writelog is able to
copy 40 wpm CW under weak signal conditions. He uses as 200MHz
computer. He helped K3IXD network the W3SO computers.

AD3F, Gene operated in the 160m contest. His antennas did
survive the ice storm. He is building a 6m beam with some advice
from W3EKT.

N3VOP, Mike lengthened his long wire antenna from 75 feet to 125
feet and used it in the 10m contest. He is forming a team to
operate the Carroll County radio Club station, K3PZN, in the
January VHF contest.

W3EKT, Ed had his 6m cards checked by N4MM during dinner and
achieved 6mDXCC. Congratulations, Ed! His antennas survived the
ice storm. He's been traveling and missed the 10m contest.

K2UOP, Tom survived the ice storm but the elements on the beam
were really drooping. He has been in all the contests this year.
He reports his QSOs are up since he has been doing more CQing and
less S&P. He, too, reported a problem with his MFJ voice keyer.
He started out with a 432 and finally MFJ replaced it with a 434.
He raised his beverage off the ground and laid it across the top
of the orchard trees (about 5 feet off the ground). It is
hearing better on 160m and is now good on 80m too.

N4MM, John survived the ice storm. He was on for the 10m
contest.
K8OQL, Jerry hasn't been able to operate a contest since CQWW SSB
due to other obligations.

W8ZA, Bob was first snowed in then later iced in. The ice storm
caused an element on a 15m beam to bend where it drooped and
rested on a guy wire. One of his 80m slopers broke. And his
beverages was sagging until the trees straightened back up. He
operated in the 160m contest, but illness reduced his operating
time in the 10m contest. He had troubles with the ARRL robot
accepting his 10m log (using CT 9.71).
Discussions:

W0YR, Mike wondered why PVRC doesn't have RTTY contests count
towards the 5M award? N4MM said it might be easier to get PVRC to
do that if we got ARRL to make RTTY a club competition contest.
Then it was mentioned that the IARU contest should be considered
towards counting towards the 5M award. Suggestion made to write
to the League and to talk to the PVRC Officers and Board members.

AD3F, Gene talked about his quest to slave the VFOs in his ICOM
746PRO. This is to over come the problem that the ICOM 746 and
ICOM 746PRO do not have a separate receiver antenna input (i.e.
for a beverage). Searching the web and in talking with others he
hasn't gotten a solution yet. However, he did discover in
reading the QST review that a quick offset can be programmed. He
is hopeing that an offset of 0 (zero) will work. Some others at
the meeting will check to see if that option exists on the ICOM
746 too. When he finds a solution, he will post it to the PVRC
e-mail reflector.

Next meeting:

The next meeting is January 21st, and it is at the City Buffet,
1306 W. Patrick Street, Frederick, MD. 301-682-6066. It is in a
small shopping center. From W. Patrick Street, turn up McCain
Dr. (the Mountain View Diner is on the corner), then turn right
into the shopping center, then turn left and search for a parking
place. The City Buffet is tucked back in the left corner of the
shopping center behind Mountain View Diner; you can't see it from
the street.

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 7:00 PM.


LAUREL JANUARY MINUTES by Pud Reaver, W3YD

The Laurel Regional PVRC Chapter met on Jan 22 after the regular
LARC meeting. In attendance were W3YD, WI3N, KT3D, W3DAD, N3TZA,
KB3DVC, NX3K, KA8YPY, and KB3BWR. The contesting for the current
quarter was discussed, and we decided to participate in the
ten-ten, CQ-160-SSB, ARRL International DX SSB and CQ WW WPX
contests. Members were reminded that almost every weekend has at
least one contest (foreign or domestic), and contesting for "the
heck of it" can be a lot of fun.

We voted to have LARC join the DXCluster, so if you see spots
from W3LRC .. that's us! Dennis/KT3D gave a demonstration on
some of the nuances of the N1MM logging program (which seems to
be the local favorite these days) and Kevin/W3DAD demonstrated
PILEUP (CW.)

Our next meeting will be after the April 23 LARC meeting ... all
are welcome, of course.


SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA CHAPTER PVRC January Meeting Minutes
by David Jones, N4JED

Southwest Virginia Chapter PVRC met Friday January 3rd. at the
Roanoker Restaurant. Braving the cold were K1SO, K4IQ and his son
Cory, N4JED and his son Robert, along with W4YE and his wife
Sarah. Regrets were sent by K1GG, N4GU and WA4BKW (who messed up
his priorities to attend his own birthday party instead).

Another excellent dinner was had by all followed by discussions
of all the contests and scores that had taken place since our
November gathering. Copies of W2GG's score summaries were passed
around along with our in-chapter 5 Mil competition results to
date. N4JED-David brought in the certificate he won for the 2001
ARRL 10-Meter Contest. He received it three days before the 2002
test - "First Place, Single Operator, Mixed Mode, Low Power,
Virginia Section". The first International Contest he had placed
in. He thinks he got beat this year by a non-PVRC station
located halfway between the Roanoke and Richmond based chapters
(hint at meeting attendance rules).

A general discussion of contests and state qso parties followed.
Several chapter members are also busy collecting counties and
K1SO-Jerry described a recent mobile county dxpedition he went
on. It was noted by W4YE-Buddy that in the 1950's the VA QSO
Party was called the VA Free-For-All. Buddy also brought in a
copy of the early Potomac Valley Radio Club membership
certificate. Several in attendance expressed an interest in
having one if they were still available to active club contest
participants.

Very few local members participate in the VHF contests and only
N4JED-David at the meeting announced plans to be on some January.
K1SO-Jerry worked the last test but will be out of town for this
one. The 160 CW will occur before our next meeting and most
present plan to operate.

What type of mobile antenna and where to best mount it on a 'Vet
was discussed for the benefit of K4IQ-John though it is not sure
he was convinced to add the equipment. His son Cory did not want
to give up the seat for the rig. Most everyone present has mobile
HF gear on hand but about half still have not installed it in
their vehicles. Various antenna configurations and manufacturers
were mentioned with several manufacturers in NC highly
recommended.

Best regards were given for all who were not present. The next
meeting of the Southwest Virginia Chapter PVRC will be held
February 7th. at the Roanoker Restaurant. So mark your calendars.
March meeting to also occur at the Roanoker and look for April's
meeting to be held in Lynchburg - site to be announced. The
meeting then adjourned to the hallway and check-out counter for
more radio tales as the parking lot was a bit to cold and snow.
