REPORTING CLAIMED SCORES FOR PVRC 5M AWARD CREDIT

To participate in the 5M Award, it is necessary for each
participant to report his claimed score to Bob Dannals, W2GG.
The preferred route is by email <[email protected] or [email protected]>,
or by posting to the PVRC email reflector (see notes on joining
the reflector on the PVRC reference page or web site).  Scores
reported on the packetcluster or on the 3830 Archives
(www.contesting.com) are not guaranteed to be found, especially
on the latter due to the large volume of scores reported
following each contest.  All scores sent directly to the email
address are acknowledged by return email.  Scores posted on the
PVRC reflector are all read but not acknowledged individually by
return email.  Check the score summaries (printed in the
Newsletter or posted frequently to the PVRC reflector).  If your
score does not appear, let Bob know.  It is not possible to read
the final contest results printed months later in a magazine and
seek out participants' scores.  You are your own advocate in this
regard, so please remember to send them to Bob before the contest
deadline.

NORTHWEST MEETING NOTES FOR NOV 02 by Ed Steeble K3IXD, Chairman

The NW region met at City Buffet in Frederick, MD on 19 November
2002.  In attendance were: N4MM, K8OQL, W3LL, K3WC, NE3H, AD3F,
N3VOP, K2PLF, W3KHZ, N3FX, W2YE, K3ZO, W3ZZ, N3HBX, W8ZA, K3IXD,
and W3EKT.

The business part of the meeting:

1) We voted on the applications of: K1RH, Rob Heath; K3ZE, Al
Bisasky; NX3K, Ken Skrivseth; KB3DVC, Ed Rummel; and N3TZA, Joe
Craven. Welcome to PVRC and we look forward to your contributions
in the club competition contests.

2) The attendees were reminded about the annual PVRC Holiday
Dinner on December 9, 2002. RSVP to K4VV via email.

3) N4MM said that the WRC03 conference has begun and of interest
to this club was the push to get world wide excusive usage of the
40m band. He reported that the DXCC desk is now processing
submissions dated September 25th.

Around the table:

N4MM, John operated in both SS CW and SS SSB.  K8OQL, Jerry
operated CQWW SSB at W8ZA's.  W3LL, Bud operated SS and CQWW.

K3WC, Dusty reported that his 6m rig and 6m amp are still in the
box. He has an Omni 6+ for sale.

NE3H, Joe is moving his packet node because it is too time
consuming to get to the current location. In CQWW SSB his amp
quit.

AD3F, Gene is now the owner of a slightly used ICOM 746PRO and
really likes the DSP capabilities. And having 6m and 2m enabled
him to enter the September VHF contest; however the 6m antenna
was his 40m antenna and the 2m antenna was a loop. He is
gathering information about building a 6m beam. That sparked a
discussion on the pros and cons of using a gamma match on VHF
antennas. He was talking about building the NBS, 3 el, 6m beam.

W3EKT, Ed said his NBS, 3 el, 6m beam uses a gamma match and he
used it for successfully  roving, and from the home QTH he has 99
countries confirmed. He is still waiting for that 100th card!
Lately he has been chasing band countries. (PS - On Saturday, the
100th 6m DX card arrived in W3EKT's mailbox.)

N3VOP, Mike said he took his station to the Carroll County Radio
Club hamfest for a club competition entry in the CQWW SSB
contest. He did some part time operating at K3PZN, the Carroll
County Radio Club's station, for CQWW SSB. In CQWW SSB, from
home, he worked 74 sections with a long wire in the trees.

K2PLF, Marty announced that Yaesu quickly repaired his power
supply. He is very pleased with their repair service. He operated
CQWW SSB from home and thinks that being packet assisted got him
75 extra multipliers. In SS SSB, he doesn't think that "U" class
is worth it.

W3KHZ, Art reported he now has worked four countries and four
states on 6m. He helped operate K3PZN in CQWW.

K3FX, Tony set out to increase his SS CW QSOs this year and
succeeded!  He was on for SS SSB.

W2YE, Dick has an Alpha 91B which replaces his Heathkit SB1000.
His ICOM 756 is at the factory so he used his ICOM 735 in SS SSB.

K3ZO, Fred operated CQWW SSB and said 10m is still the band. His
advise is to get on 10m in the early morning and search and
pounce starting at the low end and going all the way up (maybe to
28.900 or more). In SS CW he had 50 more QSOs than last year. He
will be on for CQWW CW.

W3ZZ, Gene is recovering from successful hip surgery. For CQWW
SSB he operated 10, 15, and 20m. His 40m and 80m antennas weren't
working, but the 80m antenna has since been fixed. He did a part
time effort in SS SSB to help the club's overall score. Gene said

this year's Leonid meteor shower wasn't as good as last year's
(and he reported 30 or 31 QSOs, more than anyone else at the
meeting). He asks for reports for his QST World Above 50 MHz
column.

N3HBX, John entered CQWW SSB in the single band, 15m, catagory.
KD4D did SS CW and SS SSB from John's QTH and had a better score
this year which they attribute to having SO2R capability.

W8ZA, Bob again hosted a multi-multi effort from his QTH with
K3DNE, K8OQL, K3IXD, WD3A, and N8II plus himself as the
operators. He was pleased with the new phased 80m wire verticals.
He is now studying the NCJ article about feeding phased
verticals. The 10m low pass filter burned up during a 200+ run.
For SS CW and SSB he did a casual effort.

K3IXD, Ed has returned his MFJ 434 voice keyer to the factory for
repairs. Others mentioned that, they too, had problems with their
MFJ voice keyers. He was going to enter SS SSB but due to
operator errors (which are too embarrassing to document) and RF
into the computer, he quit after 19 QSOs. With advice from W4MYA
and some on site instructions from WD3A, he has the W3SO
computers networked; and identical software on all four of them.

Discussions:

There were excellent discussions on how to find a frequency to
call CQ. In summary, on 10m you may end up very high in the band,
but that is OK; and be on 10m when it opens. If you have a good
station, be there hour early.  Start low in the band and tune up
working everyone, when you come to a clear spot, stop and call
QRZ; don't waste time just tuning, looking for a clear spot. It
helps to spot all the PVRC members you hear, even in the contests
like ARRL DX. Those spots are displayed world-wide.

Regarding SS, there was a comment that a new, general strategy
may be needed. The guidance used to be search and pounce for the
first hour or two, then start calling CQ. But today, there
doesn't seem to be as many stations on and those CQing in the
first hour are the serious stations that will be there through
out the contest.  Therefore begin by CQing and use the second
radio/vfo to search.

There was a short discussion on how to get new members and also
increased participation in club competition contests. No
conclusions except that no one present wants to spear head an
effort.

NORTHWEST MEETING NOTES FOR DEC 02 By Ed Steeble, K3IXD, chairman

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.

PVRCNC MEETING MINUTES FOR OCTOBER 2002 by Guy Olinger, K2AV

PVRCNC met at Ryan's Crossroads Plaza in Cary on October 3rd.
Attending, in no particular order: Bob N2NFG, Brian K3KO, Jeff
NX9T, Will WJ9B, Jim K4QPL, Nate N4YDU, Bert N4CW, Alan KO7X, Guy
K2AV, Wes K4WES, Jim WW4M.  Meeting called to order at the usual
time with the usual results (chair gets the razz).

Around the Horn:

N4YDU in the IARU, IOTA with KO4PY. Set up out on the banks,
reported that there were clouds of mosquitoes and conditions
sucked, but failed to mention whether the two phenomena were
related, which started another one of those interminable cause
and effect discussions at the south end of the table.

Also reported some kind of zoning problem starting up for hams in
Franklin County.

N4CW will be down east (that's up in Maine for rednecks) for a
month.  Main exercise had something to do with spackle. Whether
that was for walls (for a whole month?) or something unprintable
in these pages not determined. Subsequent reference to VHF test
non-sequitur.

KO7X was on in the sprint, further demonstrating the effect of
southern weather.

N2NFG had various tower, antenna and horticultural woes,
interrelated to a surprising degree. Does plan an antenna party,
but assured us that the Garden Club format will not be used for
the morning.

K3KO took down his 10m antenna and sold it to N4YDU. Nate was
immediately warned to disinfect it for amplifier cooties before
taking it home by the south end of the table, who interrupted
their statistical consult on mosquitoes and band conditions for
the purpose.

Brian also told a fetching story about a mockingbird hopping up
the rungs of his tower. No doubt mocking the hazer.

NX9T reported that he needs a beverage, but would have to run it
downhill, requesting commentary on efficacy of same. South end of
table abandoned mosquitoes and band conditions for new discussion
whether downhill polarization is vertical or just downhill.

WJ9B reported on WAE and first encounter with QTC's. Comment was
that he appeared sane and in remarkably good health, considering.

K4QPL did the WAE and Sprint and reported the results of homebrew
SO2R box version 11.2c.

K4WES did the WW RTTY. No fires, blown traps, amps or any such.
Are you sure it was on, Wes?

WW4M wants to watch (not operate) a RTTY contest, with the
intention of getting his feet wet. South end of table reminded
him that oil on the shoes went out with heavy metal, it's all
electronic now. North end got off on tangent about exactly how
one WATCHES an RTTY test.  Unwittingly resurrected the
TR-vs.-WriteLog-ish flap on which is the best RTTY program.

N4YDU asked people to watch out for NR3X which might be him.
South end of table interrupted their polarization debate to
strongly advise Nate NOT to use this call in the SS.
Since the south end of table had been effectively adjourned since
mosquitoes and band conditions, north end adjourned to
miscellaneous BS and scientific discussions, whereupon all polar
differentiation ceased.

PVRC/NC MEETING 12/12/02 by Pete Soper, AD4L

PVRC/NC chapter meeting Thursday December 12 at Raleigh Six Forks
North Applebees Attendees: K2AV, K3KO, K4QPL, KO4PY, N2NFG,
N3NPQ, N4TL, AD4L Regrets: WW4M, W2CS, W9JB, KO7X, K4TMC, NX9T,
and N4CW.  (This was a "small meeting beats no meeting" makeup
for the December 5 regular date preempted by the ice storm and is
mostly a reconnaissance report as we  look for alternatives to
Ryans for some future meetings)

I arrived in time to catch the tail end (last 45 minutes) of a
heated technical discussion between K2AV and K3KO about where RF
current flows when the coax is run inside a tower leg or some
such. I was too involved with the waiter trying to get a decent
beer to hear the conclusion about where the current really flows
but perhaps Guy and Brian will be submitting an article to "QST"
to get this down for posterity.

About the beer. After going around the houses I established that
the beer selection at this Applebees looks like this:

                - Killians

There were two or three industrial and light industrial solvents
for sale too but I won't mention them. The beer score is thus 3
on a 100 scale. Still, the Killians was better than a pine cone
in the eye and of course all the friendly faces made this a minor
point.

They had a superb mixed appetizer plate with yummy ribs, breaded
cheese sticks, "cheese inside pastry" , and chips and dip with
hot peppers. My shrimp platter was OK and overall I rate the
place 70 for food.

The room was about the right size for a well attended meeting of
18-20. This evening it wasn't exclusive but there was just one
other patron with us the whole time (from her expression she was
perfectly mystified by our conversations!) There was no smoking
and no noticeable smoke in the room.

The noise level coming in from the rest of the restaurant was
just on the verge of being a problem but the noise going the
other way with the usual 20 of us for something like a Carnac
description of the N4AF exploding balun might constitute the
bigger concern. I can't recall if there are doors.

No problem with separate checks. The service was satisfactory.
Getting too/from the place was trivial. Traffic was heavy but
moved at a decent pace. On a rainy night coming up from south
Cary it would of course be painful though.

K2AV described some of the wild wire antennas at the N4AF station
and went into detail about the extensive testing Howie did,
modeling exercises and lessons learned about long booms (I seem
to recall the boom on the 20m yagi to Europe is 160 feet but I
may have that confused with the 40m quad).

But we mostly yacked about the storm and also got the scoop on
N2NFG's unfortunate house fire (Bob's having a new home built
now). Lots of storm war stories, the best one being the tree that
massacred K4QPL's wife's car coming down more or less where Jim
had been standing a short while before and forcing him to stop
and think about mortality. N3NPQ and I couldn't resist a little
shop talk about the new Linux interprocess lock primitive but we
kept our voices low.

Back to Carnac Reports next year, best wishes to all!
