PVRC/NC JULY MEETING ON 18TH AT N4CW
 
The regular PVRC-NC meeting scheduled for the first Thursday of July is
changed to be at N4CW's QTH on July 18th. Anybody planning to attend is
urged to notify N4CW in advance so directions to that location can be
provided. The meeting will begin at noon on July 18--lunch and
refreshments (beer and soda) will be provided by the host. There is no
mega station to demo nor a complex antenna farm...just a laid-back
get-together of PVRC contest aficionados.  You're welcome to attend. I'll
be sending directions to all that I get a response from. As for
scheduling, it's always something....that weekend it's a RTTY contest.
C'mon down...and let me know if you plan to.

WX3B, and WZ4A
 
President, K3MM, called the meeting to order at 2 PM or so.  We went
around giving our name and call sign.  Tyler noted a meeting in NC at N4CW
for July 18th, a meeting at W4MYA in July (see prior article -editor) and
at W3YOZ ("Fowlfest") August 15th.  Also, the joint meeting with FRC
September 12, at an FRC site to be determined.
 
The regular "general" meeting for September will be the second Monday of
the month, as usual.  The September one will be at our Virginia site,
Patrick Henry Library, Route 123, Vienna, Virginia, at 7:30 P.M.  An
informal pre-meeting dinner is held beforehand at Outback Steakhouse
nearby.  Presentation at the September meeting will be two radio single op
techniques, presented by K3MM and N3OC.
 
K3DI has worked out details with the postal service for bulk mailing.
W3CP reminds us he's our representative to the Foundation for Amateur
Radio (F.A.R., that puts on the Gaithersburg, MD hamfest, but also runs a
scholarship program and other good things), but could use another helper,
since he can't attend all the meetings.  N1KC has agreed to handle orders
for PVRC shirts, hats, mugs, and possibly various other items.  I think we
have some pent-up demand...things were delayed with the logo enhancement
the last year or so...he hopes to put in an order perhaps in September.
Contact N1KC for info, and he'll be putting out info through the normal
channels (e.g. newsletter and reflector, packet, etc.)
 
W3KN, an 18-year old member, son of longtime PVRCer W3MR, was awarded a
thousand-dollar ARRL scholarship.  Andy plans to attend Embrey-Riddle in
Florida in the fall.  Congratulations, Andy.  You can also find Andy
selling hotdogs at Baysox (AA minor league, Orioles farm system) games in
Bowie, MD during the summer.
 
W3LEO and W3CQH noted that the Governor of Maryland has declared Field Day
week "Amateur Radio Week" in the State of Maryland, apparently due to
W3CQH's efforts.  W3CQH displayed a nice certificate from the governor.
 
We noted the presence of half a dozen NC PVRCers!  Thanks for making the
trip, guys.  As you well know, we NEED you to win!  We'll try to get some
guys from the northern end of PVRC-land to come down to your summer event
too.  And.we can meet in the middle at W4MYA's.  Also, a few of our PA,
WV, and DE members were present.
 
Many PVRCers are going out for Field Day, some with the W3AO all PVRC
group and many others with their local clubs, etc.  We had everyone
mention where they'll be for FD -- must have been 15 different groups!
 
The missing logs in the 10M contest controversy was discussed, K1DQV
urging a strong letter to ARRL expressing our displeasure.  Roger was
reassured the dialogue has been engaged, with PVRC in the middle of it.
N4MM, who's on the League's Board, and a longtime PVRCer, assured us it
would be high on the agenda for the July board meeting.  Also, longtime
PVRCer K4VX is head of the Membership Services Committee and is well aware
of the situation.  In any case, PVRC was awarded the win in the medium
category by a decent margin over two Florida groups, the Florida Contest
Club (N4BP is one of them), and Florida Contest Group (K4OJ is one of
them), who came in second and third.  PVRC knows of 5 logs of ours that
were also lost.
All were email logs, not snail mail, interestingly.  It appears even if
all allegedly lost logs were added; we would still have the highest point
total.  And, adding in our missing logs would push us over 50 logs into
the unlimited category, all along, so we would win that and one of the
Florida clubs would win the medium category.  So, I think PVRC is not
adversely affected no matter what happens...but the Florida guys have been
pretty upset.  Congratulations to PVRC for another win.  Getting to be a
habit lately!  Other recent wins, '97 Sweepstakes and the recent VHF
contest.  Now 10M.  And we seem to have a potentially winning WPX total
too.  And, of course, this fall we go for the threepeat in SS! Let's get
200 logs this time!
Also on the ARRL Board agenda is the possibility of having out of area
Sweepstakes scores count (e.g. K4MA in KP2 for SS, W3LPL at KH7R in SS,
and other similar ones)...if the member is otherwise bona fide in every
way, etc.  PVRC made this suggestion.
K7SV notes the NAQP in August is a fun contest, and IARU is coming up in
July too.  For NAQP we can enter teams (I think it's five per team)...we
could have several PVRC teams in it if there's enough interest.
We voted in a number of new members, among them W2YE, W3KIT, KK5ZX,
WA4JUK, K1SE, WX3B, and NP3C.  I couldn't keep up so I know I missed a
few, which K3MM will have to fill in from the applications.
Meeting was adjourned.  I left Frank's at about 6 PM (the affair started
at noon) and there were still half a dozen hanging around in Frank's
basement at that point.  Had a great time.
 
OVER-THE-HILL LUNCH BUNCH June 18th by Ben Shaver, AA4XU

 
Here are the attendees at the PVRC monthly Over-The-Hill Lunch at Tom
Weston's Restaurant, Annandale, VA on Wednesday June 18, 1998. The last
amendment of the PVRC Bylaws makes these meetings official club meetings,
at which attendance serves for contest certification credit just like the
night meetings do.  Attending were: K6ETM George Sinclair; W3XE, Andy
Andersen; W3UJ, Henry Herman; W3GN, Lawrence Fadner; W4RV, Sam Brown;
W4DM; Dale Harris; W6AXX, Howard Leake; K3ZO, Fred Laun; and AA4XU Ben
Shaver.
 
PVRC/SWVA MEETING MINUTES, JUNE 12, 1998 by John Mitchell, K4IQ
 
Site: Western Sizzlin' Restaurant, Williamson Rd., Roanoke. 1800-2100
 
Attendees: W4YE, Buddy; K1GG, Gordon; N4GU, Mike, K3GX, Dave; K4IQ, John;
WA4BKW, Bill; K4EP, (ex-KF4JFG), Phil; KU4RG, (ex. KF4LBD), Anthony.
 
Membership:  This was KU4RG - Anthony's second meeting, and, after a
spirited introduction by W4YE, he was unanimously voted into Chapter
membership.  Welcome Anthony!  
 
Meeting Agenda: Since May was a busy month, and we had no meeting,
everyone had a lot to catch up on.  K4EP, N4GU and K4IQ related their
Dayton adventures, including their bewilderment that some of their
traveling companions just HAD to watch that last episode of Seinfeld.
Mike also told us about the Dunestar Bandpass filters he bought.  Gordon,
K1GG related some background on the FAIRS group that he volunteers with,
which is involved in amateur radio good will building between the US and
Ukraine. John, K4IQ described the scene at the hospitality suites, which
he attended nightly with fellow PVRC'ers W3YOZ and K4VV.  Attendees also
really enjoyed meeting up with Ivor, GI0AIJ, who was accompanied at Dayton
by Roanoke ham Jerry, K1SO, who had pictures of Ivor's antenna farm.
Jerry recently visited Ivor's fantastic QTH near Belfast, and has promised
to attend one of our meetings soon. N4GU has a neat web page with lots of
pictures from Dayton at http:\\lab.ant.ee.vt.edu.  Click on "personnel"
and "Michael Barts".
 
Gordon, K1GG, won the Virginia QSO party with a great effort.
Congratulations Gordon!  K4IQ took single operator high power for Virginia
section in the ARRL 160 test.  N4GU shared the latest NCJournal, which had
all the listings for the CW NAQSO party results.  The Southwest Virginia
Contest Conspiracy (all PVRC'ers) placed in the middle somewhere, and was
pleased with this first effort.  Buddy, W4YE was quite active in both the
WPX and ROTA, where he noted that 10M was a disappointment in WPX, and
that SWVA has a geographic disadvantage for ROTA, since we're beyond
ground wave, but inside the skip zone, for the Capitol area stations. K4EP
described his experiences working from Hatteras Island for IOTA, and
mentioned he may participate in the July IARU and IOTA tests.  K4IQ, N4GU,
and K3GX plan modest efforts for the VHF contest this weekend, and members
will be active from four different regional clubs for Field Day. 
 
We also discussed the summer format, with at least one picnic planned for
August/September, and some antenna parties.  We agreed to coordinate by
email to try to car pool to some of the main club activities.  Several
people commented that it would be good if PVRC'ers from other Chapters
could make a visit to one of our meetings, and that we should extend a
standing invitation for anyone traveling through the area to contact us,
and we'll arrange a meeting around their travel schedule.  We discussed
our organization and structure, and it was agreed that K4IQ would continue
to coordinate our activities, and that we didn't need additional offices
at this time. We've had a great first year at SWVA, and look forward to
even more growth and activity next season.
 
NW REGIONAL MEETING JUNE 16, 1998 by Tyler Stewart K3MM
 
The meeting was held at the usual QTH, Legend's in Frederick.  In
attendance were members: K3MM, W3EKT, K3IXD, N8II, K3SX, W8ZA, WD3A,
WA3IKK, NE3H, and K3LP.
 
WD3A reports that the NIST group will activate K3AA for field day in 3E
category.  Anyone interested in operating in air-conditioned comfort
should contact him!  Tom also made about 150 Q's in WPX CW and did a
little roving in the VHF contest with 22Q's and 7 grids! 
 
W8ZA played in the VHF contest.  Bob has new 40 and 20 meter beams in the
works.  He is acquiring another TS850 from W3LPL and will also operate
from K3AA in FD.
 
K3SX, Sid, reports working 3 VK's and a ZL in the WPX contest on his
160-meter band.  He also made 134Q's or about 8400 points on 6/2/and
220mhz for the VHF contest.  He now has 170 countries confirmed on 160M!
 
WA3IKK hasn't operated FD since 1967!  Comments from the MP reflector have
him worried about his radio's constitution.
 
NE3H gave up on RITTY and has gone back to running the Hal P38.
 
N8II did 130/18 in the PVRC Reunion and notes working DL8TWA running QRP
and a vertical on 40 meters!  In the VHF contest, he worked VP5, 3 CO's,
and 2 XE's on 6 meters.  Total 188/78 for 13,160 points.  He did about 100
Q's in WPX CW.
 
K3IXD went roving with W3EKT/R in the VHF contest.  He comments that bad
WX seemed to cut into the NE corridor activity.
 
W3EKT says K1TR reported 70-mph winds at their QTH!  For their roving,
they set up near Lancaster, dodging "road apples" all the way.  Ed won a
Teletec amp at Dayton and selected one to run on 432 to match his other
two.  Score was 700+Q's for 145k points.  His goal for next year is 1000
QSO's!
 
K3MM reports 4.3 million in the WPX CW contest.  He operated 2 meters at
K3MQH as usual with about 775 Q's and 68 grids, being absolutely shocked
when W5KFT called in from Texas during a very brief opening on that band!
He worked 3 others before it dropped out just a few minutes later.  He's
still trying to get some work done on the new tower, and has a new CC
XM240 to put on top.
 
WA3IKK and W3EKT made monetary contributions to the club at the meeting.
Meeting adjourned.
 
NOTES FROM THE RAPPAHANNOCK GROUP by Larry Schimelpfenig, K7SV
 
We just put a TH6 at the top of K4GMH's 120ft Rohn 25 stick.  He's up real
high in Stafford County with an excellent shot in every direction. At NJ4F
we completed a 5 over 5 over 5 stack on ten meters, and that should
complete antenna work there.  Except for maybe a temporary 60 ft tower for
a TH6 and a rotatable 40 meter dipole for the multiplier station, and some
more separate feed lines to the big tower, and maybe some better wires on
80!
 
FREDERICK HAMFEST MEETING - June 21, 1998 by Tyler Stewart K3MM
 
An impromptu meeting was held at the Frederick hamfest on Sunday morning.
This was W3IO, Burts second meeting, making him eligible for membership.
Also in attendance were members: K3MM, KA4RRU, K1DQV, K5OF, K3SA, K3UT,
WI2T, KA3QPG, W3CQH, K3SKE, and W3AZD.
 
SHORT NOTES FROM THE EDITOR
 
The paper edition of the Newsletter is now sent by bulk mail.  This
reduces the postage rate AND allows us to mail 3.3087 ounces instead of
one ounce at the basic rate.  The flip side is that we need your exact
address including your correct current zip code.  If the PO has changed
your zip code, please let W2GG know.  Your Newsletter will not be
forwarded but the Postal Service will feedback the corrected information
to me for a small fee.  Bob, W2GG maintains the PVRC database and provides
me with a current database file every month.
 
We heard from Eric, R3/K3NA.  He just got his Russian radio license, which
took about 4 months and cost $150 for a year.  He noted that US hams
should be happy with ten-year low-cost licenses!  Eric's email is
[email protected]
 
The 1997 Canada Day Contest scores are out and N4MM took first place USA
14 MHz single operator.
 
Eric, W3DQ, messages us from Australia that he was active from South
Africa and operated ZS98IARU at the ITU Africa Telecom '98 show from
Johannesburg.  He has purchased a Force 12 triband Yagi, and hopes to put
it up when he returns home in July.  He's looking forward to some
respectable scores from DC this coming season.
 
Brian Bayus, N1KC, has volunteered to open the PVRC store in late August
and says that he hopes to place orders soon afterwards to take care of
pent-up demand.  He said he is looking for ideas as to what types of new
items people may want, i.e. hats, mugs, pins, or whatever.  Brian's email
is [email protected], his home phone and fax is 703-264-1180, and he's
on packet.  Please note that N3OC continues to be the badge man and N3NT
QSLs. 
 
The July QST reported that PVRC won the 10M contest but several logs sent
electronically were lost.  It appears that the ARRL may find additional
logs and revise the results so it is important for all to be sure your log
is in.  How do you know if the League has your log?  K7CMZ tipped us off
to checking the ARRL web page at www.arrl.org/contests/claimed click on
the particular contest under LOGS RECEIVED.
 
The Maryland-DC QSO party will be held August 8th 1600-0400 UTC (the 9th)
and August 9th 1600-2359 UTC.  QSO parties are good contests for a new
contester to get warmed up on.  The exchange is QTH (State or MD county)
and category (club, QRP, mobile, Novice/Tech, & standard).  Frequencies
are 3920, 7230, 14268, 21370, 28380, and 50150 kHz on voice and 3643,
3701, 7035, 7126, 14040, 21115, 28040, and 28115 kHz on CW.  Also, VHF and
UHF.  The scoring is too complex to present here.  Sponsored by the
Antietam Radio Association, WA3EOP chairman.
 
Probably you Internet buffs know this but I just discovered that the
search engine, AltaVista (www.altavista.digital.com), has a translate
option between many world languages.  Great for reading contest rules not
yet translated into English.
 
Chas, K3WW, has announced that the joint PVRC and FRC meeting will be
September 12th at 1:00 PM at N3AD.  FRC recognizes that there is a
conflict with a VHF contest but other Saturdays had other conflicts.
Directions to N3AD's farm (not his license address) will be in the August
Newsletter.
