encounter another pair of traffic signals.  Turn left at the second of
these signals onto Burntwoods Rd.  Follow Burntwoods Rd for 1.7 miles
and turn right on Hobbs Rd.  Park in front of the towers.

Directions to W3LPL from I-70:

Exit I-70 at Route 97 South (Exit 76) towards Olney.  Follow Rt 97 for 2

South MD Regional Meeting Minutes, 3 May 1999 by Barry Shapiro, WR3Z
ShapiroBJ@navair.navy.mil

Meeting was held at the home of Wayne Rogers, N1WR.  Attendees were:
Barry, WR3Z; Wayne, N1WR; & Chuck, N3WZR.

N1WR reported his intent in operating the WPX CW contest this month. 
Intended station improvements include fix up of recently bought Drake
twins as well as a linear amplifier.  Wayne also has thoughts of
stringing out receiving antennas for 80/160.

N3WZR reported his recent successes after putting up a Double Zepp
antenna for 80.  Chuck began a new job on 3 May in Columbia which will
result in much longer commutes from his Lusby home.  Eventually, his
family will move 'up the road', possibly southern Anne Arundel county,
where he will set up a
new station.  Until then, Chuck will continue to perform his duties as
President of SPARC, including coordination of this year's Field Day.

WR3Z reported his intent on operating WPX CW at WR3L.  Barry also noted
current improvement activities taking place at the base MARS station,
including both HF and VHF/UHF antennas.  The major job remaining is to
fix the station's log periodic and rotor.  Barry will be at Dayton again
this year with Rob, ND3A, who will be coming back from KH6 for a short
vacation.

It was decided that this meeting would be the last regional meeting for
the contest season.  Beginning in the fall, we will be switching over to
quarterly meetings (September, December, March, May).

at Crossroads Shopping Center in Cary.

PVRC OTH Meeting of 28 April 1999 by Andy Anderson, W3XE

15 seems to be the magic number as on this day we again had 15 hardy
souls who braved the bright sunshine and fresh air to get to The Holiday
Inn for lunch.  One person who was missing was Bill Long, W3EIV who has
cancer in his kidneys.

If you have time give him a call or send him a card to try and cheer him
up.

Not to be outdone this day Jack, W3TMZ took a group picture so if you
need something to scare your children or grand children you might
contact him for a copy.  He used two cameras so that if the group
shattered the lens he had a backup.

It was nice to see Hugh, W3ABC back amongst the active and find that he
is slowly returning to his old self.  Among the notables attending was
Ken Miller, K6IR who has been chosen as "HAM OF THE YEAR" by the Dayton
Hamvention group.  Lawrence, W3GN was up to his old tricks, trying to
sit on a moving target.  Fell flat on his keyster.  To start the show
Henry, W3UJ tried to pour hot coffee into his pocket.  Guess he was
going to take it home to drink.  Then there was the Florander who is
here for the summer.  That is Dale, W4DM.  Oh yes I got back from Texas
$600 under budget.

Very important!!! If you plan on attending one of these future feature
luncheons please let the host know in advance as seating sometimes gets
confusing as we all sit at the same table and shout back and forth.  Of
course the OTH Gang has its share of hard of hearing people.

The Attendees:  Hugh, W3ABC.  Bill, W3AZ.  Jim, W3CP.  Lawrence, W3GN. 
Jack, W3TMZ.  Henry, W3UJ.  Tony, K3WX.  Jim, N3YDT.  Dale, W4DM.  Ben,
AA4XU.  Howard, W6AXX.  Ken, K6IR.  Bob, W2BZR.  Mike, W3MC
For # 15 the Host Andy, W3XE.  73 and see you on the low end

NW MEETING MINUTES, MAY 18TH by Dave Blanchard, N3II
We missed you Greg... there were 6 members in attendance with 2 visitors
attending their 2nd meeting. We did not have a quorum so we did not vote
Tony and Nat in .... they intend to attend Frank's meeting next month.
In attendance were: Tom WD3A Bob W8ZA Ben N3UMA Tony W3/G4KLF (A45ZN)
Dave N3II Wayne N3UN Tony ex- K3CQX 2nd meeting Nat KB3CBW 2nd meeting.

No business was discussed other than ordering our food and beverages
from a lovely young lady named Jen.
 
1. The Magic band was discussed extensively (6 meters) MUF... e-skip ...
f2-skip ... accomplishments over the last 4 cycles ... stories from A4
land by Tony (G4KLF).

2. War stories about the RAF Omani Air Force US Air Force were
exchanged.

3. Antennas were discussed of course.

4. Ben (N3UMA) was looking for a partner to work the VHF contest in June
from Gambrils.

5. PSK31 was brought up ... only need a sound card and an interface to
the mike connector on the radio?  Info at the members page of ARRL. 

We all enjoyed the informality of this meeting and accomplished little
despite the lack of leadership.

PA-PVRC MEETING AND ANTENNA RAISING, May 8, 1999 by Steve Cutshall,
K3TZV.


A meeting of the PA Chapter of PVRC was called to order at 9 am at the
home of Wally Rumble, AA3RC, 2004 Carlisle Road, Camp Hill, PA.  Members
in attendance were NE3H, K3SWZ, KC3TL, and K3TZV. 

The first item of business was conducted this was Wally's second PA-PVRC
meeting and he was voted in a member by those in attendance.  Wally
lives in Camp Hill PA and is an extra class operator. He has achieved
DXCC and is quite active on the ham bands. He works as a guard at the
Camp Hill State Prison.  He's been licensed several years.  

Wally's errecting a 50 Ft aluminum tower (made by Universal) and has a
new Froce -12 C3E to stick on the top. He's presently using a Gap
Vertical on the bands and also has a G5RV dipole.  We got the tower
erected and the 24 ft mast inside the tower, but a problem with the
Tailtwister rotor and a heavy downpour curtailed completing the project. 
I might also add that the project sits in that status right now as Wally
is waiting a hearing in June to obtain a zoning variance.  After the
tower base was installed the (one of 2) zoning officer showed up and
informed him that he had found several problems with the permit that
they were about to grant and they wanted Wally to obtain a variance to
the code to meet a the little quirks of the law.  Hopefully all will be
wrapped up by mid-june that Wally can get on with his new beam.

We expect to have another meeting at the next "work party" and see some
other faces from the PA group.

(This is a great idea!  PVRC'ers getting groups together to help
prospective members to get on during contests. editor)

TIDEWATER COLONY MEETING, MAY 18, 1999 by Don Lynch, W4ZYT

The new meeting place for the Tidewater Colony Chapter of the PVRC is
The Family Buffet, Virginia Beach Blvd at Newtown Road, and meeting time
is 1830 dinner, meeting at 1925.  The PVRC chapter meeting is held in
conjunction with the monthly meeting of the Virginia DX Century Club.

A short meeting was held with the DX Club meeting on Tuesday, 18 May. In
attendence: W4HM, K4UX, WB4DNL, W4PRO, W1WTG, K1KO, W4JLS, AF4CD, W4SD,
NW3K, W4ZYT, and KT4P (ex-W4HIR).  

Plans for the Field Day operation as W4DZ were briefly discussed - this
will be at K4UX's site, and we anticipate 2 stations: one CW and one for
the other mode.

W4ZYT gave a program on his visit to Ireland and operation as EI2IM/p,
and on his and W4SD's operations as VO1AA for the '98 SSB Sweepstakes
(from Signal Hill, St John's Newfoundland), and also the 1999 ARRL CW DX
Test as KG4DZ from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

K4IX recently underwent surgery. Members were updated regarding his
condition and it is noted he hopes to make a Field Day operation.

All members were reminded to submit all logs, and to indicate PVRC
membership accordingly.  The meeting was adjourned at 2040.

PVRC SWVA Chapter, March 19 by  Jerry Haislip, K1SO

(Sorry, but the March minutes were lost somewhere on my computer.  The
April meeting occurred while we were in distribution phase.  Glad to
catch up and see that SWVA is a happening. - editor.)

Potomac Valley Radio Club Southwest VA Chapter meeting held at the
Western Sizzlen, off Interstate 81 in Christiansburg, VA, on March 19,
1999.

The regular (dinner started at 6:00 p.m.) monthly meeting of the
Southwest Virginia Chapter with Coordinator John Mitchell, K4IQ
presiding, was held in the Christiansburg area, giving members in that
portion of the Chapter shorter travel time.

Attending the meeting, John/K4IQ, Buddy/W4YE, Michael/N4GU, Nat/N4EL and
Jerry/K1SO.  Introduction of visitor John Lido/KU4YL, formerly of NJ now
residing in Blackburg, VA.  John came at the invitation of Michael/N4GU. 
John is a somewhat new ham with many interests, one of which is
contesting and the other perked ears when he told about a project he is
starting into Contest Logging software.  Being a Software
Designer/Developer, John has knowledge in the computer end and wants
input from contest operators to get the best possible results.  Things
we might need and would like to see added that other programs do not
have.  If you have input, drop John/KU4YL a note via his Internet
address KU4YL@goof.com, let him know what you want to see in logging
software.

Under Old Business: Reports of past contest activity from members
present.  Both K4IQ and W4YE worked the ARRL DX - CW and Phone contest.
Buddy/W4YE stated he did well in the CW part and operated low power in
the Phone portion doing fair.  K4IQ operated Single Op-High power in the
CQ 160 SSB and placed third in PVRC.  W4YE said he did work that contest
but only limited time.  No other member had reports to give.

New Business: Upcoming Contest activities were discussed - who would be
operating and in what contest.  The events discussed, CQWW WPX SSB (as
well as, the Phone portion of the WPX later in the year).  The
inter-club competition of the 5 million awards was talked about and
members were reminded to submit their scores for credit.  Both K4IQ and
W4YE have significant scores bringing them within range of this award.
Buddy/W4YE reminded the group of the upcoming Virginia QSQ Party, 
although not a PVRC contest, it is fun and great to get new operators 
into the action without pressure.  Could mean future members.

Dayton was the next issue of topic, John/K4IQ had plans, as well as,
K1GG (who was not at the meeting but would be with K4IQ's group). 
Jerry/K1SO would be going. Michael/N4GU was still in the planning stages
and would know soon.  The last of the formal business was handled when
the April meeting time and place was chosen.  It will be at Shoney's in
Salem, VA.  Dinner at 6 p.m., meeting at 7 p.m., on Friday night April
30, 1999.

The meeting was then open to discussion of a tower addition on the
current antenna system of Buddy/W4YE.  With the combined experience in
the group an engineering solution was quickly proposed. John/K4IQ was to
stop by and give the project a quick eye and report back if positive
results could be obtained with the addition.

After all business concerns had been handled, the group then discussed
some articles read in various publications.  As a result of some of the
articles, the discussion of some new and old rigs on the market took
center stage, with the popular consensus seeming to be the 1000MP.  The
always present antennas topic was also discussed.  Also a question about
PVRC logo articles ordered came up.  Had anyone in the SW VA Chapter
received anything?  This would be checked on and results reported back. 
The meeting adjourned at 8:45 p.m.

SW Virginia Chapter meeting, 4/30/99 by Buddy Smith, W4YE

The April meeting of PVRC/SW as held at Salem, Va. at the Shoney's
restaurant.  Present were:  K1GG, K1SO, K4IQ, N4GU, and W4YE.

Prior to the meeting, N4GU ably demonstrated eating jello using a straw. 
This proved a big hit with John's (K4IQ) children!   Mike has several
talents totally unrelated to ham radio!

After a fine meal, Chairman, K4IQ began the formal meeting.  John
reported on his recent visit to central meeting and interesting
conversations with all present...especially W4RX  (a long time friend of
W4YE I might add).  John enjoyed the video of Jeff Briggs station
(K1ZM).

The subject of building our membership was a major topic.  Our chapter
is small and while there are not great numbers of contesters/DXers in
this area we want to invite a few potential members to our next meeting. 
John will contact K4MX and Gordon will work on WA5FAC.  Mike noted two
friends in Blacksburg.  John noted that we have some great leads on a
number of people and we should try to get them to summer meetings. 

The second topic of discussion was the consideration of awards within
the chapter as well as some intra chapter incentives on a handicap
basis.  John will explore this idea with the central troops.

Questions came up concerning PVRC shirts, mugs and name tags. It was
hoped that they would arrive before the Dayton hamfest.  At least four
of the SW VA group will attend Dayton and hopefully PVRC will have some
type of sign in sheet.

The recent Va QSO party was discussed.  N4GU was high station in the
chapter here.  Mike had over 500 QSOs.  His "thrill" for the contest was
having a higher number than W4MYA at one point...this lead was short
lived however!

The 50th Anniversary PVRC book was discussed.  Buddy noted that he had
heard nothing in a long time about it.  It was suggested that he check
the PVRC web page for info.

Upcoming contests;  WPX cw...some showed interest in this event.

Antenna work for the summer is needed at K1GG, K4IQ and W4YE.  Our next
meeting is May 21 at Steak and Ale in Roanoke at 6pm.   John will host a
summer picnic at a TBA date.

PVRC - Southwestern Virginia Chapter - Meeting of May 21, 1999.
by Jerry Haislip, K1SO

The May meeting was held at the Steak and Ale on Route 419 in Roanoke,
Virginia.  Members on hand were: K4IQ, John (SW Coordinator); W4YE,
Buddy; K1GG, Gordon; and K1SO, Jerry.  One guest was present, Ray
Crampton, AB4YZ from nearby Daleville.  Ray introduced himself and the
members gave Ray information on the finer points on becoming a PVRC
member.  AB4YZ has been a Ham since 1956 and enjoys Contesting and
Special Events operations. He is an active member of the Roanoke Valley
Club, is married and has three sons, one of which is also a Ham, Ray,
Jr./KN4SK, Ray was welcomed by all.

Dinner was served at 6:00 p.m. followed by the monthly meeting at 7:00
p.m.  A discussion of past contest was held and all members were
reminded to send all their scores to W2GG.  The 5 million total was
reviewed and K4IQ stated SW group looks very good with some nice scores.

Dayton was then discussed and from the membership of SW group, 4
attended the 1999 Hamvention.  K4IQ, K1GG, N4GU and K1SO all traveled to
Dayton.  All signed up at the Daily DX booth on the PVRC sign-in sheet
and attended the Hospitality rooms at the Crown Plaza.

Buddy, W4YE - made a visit to Laurel, Delaware and made a stop by W3PP
Contest Station.  Had photos of his trip to show.  The meetings for the
summer months will be suspended in favor of the summer events for the SW
group (Picnic) and the visits to W3LPL station will serve as a meeting. 
Up coming contest were discussed and Buddy W4YE reminded every one of
the PVRC reunion.  Everyone is looking forward to WPX-CW coming up and
again scores should be sent in to keep our count up.

With no further business the meeting adjourned and moved outside the
Steak and Ale for some enjoyable conversations.  Time and place of the
next meeting will be sent out via e-mail to all member.
SHORT NOTES by the editor

Jay, WX0B of Array Solutions (see his ad in the May Newsletter or at
www.arraysolutions.com) says that he will give PVRC members a 10%
discount on purchases made before June 30th.  All should be grouped into
a single order and one check sent.  Contact K3DI for details.

Regional chair persons.  Please review information for your
region/chapter/etc on the reference page and pass any corrects to the
editor.

All members are requested to review the membership roster that was
mailed with the May issue and let W2GG know of any changes or additional
information.  We are especially eager to chase down addresses that are
listed as unknown.

Rob Shapiro, ND3A/KH6 reports that he will be operating in the 1999 CQ
WPX CW contest as WH7Q from the island of Maui as single-op, all band,
either low power or high power TBD when he gets to Maui.
(nd3a@hawaii.rr.com)

Pud, W3YD passes along word that Marty, K2PLF, will be returning to the
area from California and eager to reactivate in PVRC.

Presorted Mail (formerly called Bulk mail).  For a year we have been
getting the 18.3c "automated rate" for 3.3 ounces because we bar coded. 
The Arnold PO finally discovered that the 18.3c rate required that we
bar code with Zip+4+ECR (Enhanced Carrier Route adds two digits that
allows an automated sort in the ordered delivered) and have a Coding
Accuracy Support System (CASS) certified mail list.  The Postmaster in
Arnold suggested I contact the area "expert" in Baltimore for advice. 
The latter suggested that the CASS certification would be expensive for
only twelve mailings.  We would need to pay a commercial service
quarterly to certify that the address and zip codes agree and to obtain
an updated ECR number.  Plus we would need to find special software to
print the Zip+4+ECR code.   His recommendation was that we use the 23.5c
rate for up to 3.3 ounces which requires that we presort (easily done in
dBase) and do some bundling though we don't need to bar code.   I will
probably continue to bar code because I think that will mean there will
be one less mail gobbling machine that our Newsletter will go through. 
I'm glad the jumbo May issue got through the system at the lower rate!

PS: I use "c" in the Newsletter instead of the cents symbol.  The symbol
might get lost during electronic transmission.

Here's a reminder that members can request an email copy of the PVRC
Newsletter to be sent directly by requesting it via email to
wilder@clark.net (or k3di@arrl.net).  Please state your email address
because it may be different than address in your message header.  You
will still receive the paper edition.  The PVRC Newsletter is also
posted at www.pvrc.org.
