YPlog; A review by Tom Alderman, W4BQF

YPlog* is a shareware multi-functional software program that provides
the capability for radio control, contesting, logging, award tracking,
dx cluster via packet or internet, real time grey line image of the
earth, CW generation via sound card or LPT, that holds weight ratio at
speeds over 100 wpm, integration with MMTTY, PSK31, CDROM call books,
rotor control, and numerous other features. YPlog is written to run
under MS Windows operating system and is compatible with Windows 95,
98SE, ME, NT, 2K, and XP. I have operated it under both Win98SE and
XPpro with no problems.

CONTESTING. Contesting features include 50+ contests in the contest
calendar (each contest can be customized so users can update rule
changes), complete display of points and multipliers, single operator -
two radio (SO2R) contesting, fully networked multi-multi or multi-2
contesting with automatic sharing of log data, simple button clicks
update one or all stations on the network with shared log information in
case a computer has been off-line for a period of time. Multiple
Cabrillo submission formats, CW keyboard with call send-ahead features,
complete contest keyboard custom configuration including TR and CT
keyboard layout emulation. Search-and-pounce (S&P) and/or Run modes
selectable and automatically configured to switch to S&P when tuning
dial is moved more than 5 kHz. Built-in voice keyer for SSB. RTTY
contesting is fully supported with the option of using traditional TU's,
smart TNC's, or sound card systems such as MMTTY.

FEATURES. Logging features include contesting, CW/SSB keyboard
messages, PSK31 support, RTTY, log printing, grey line (sun terminator)
image of the earth,CDROM (Amateur Radio Call Book, Buckmaster, and QRZ)
support, beam headings, dup-checking, QSL label printing, and export to
database. Award tracking is provided for DXCC, ITU/CQ zone, IOTA, Grid
Locator, and Counties. Multiple computers can be networked for SO2R
type of operation or to share devices such as packet cluster access or
rotor control. ADIF support, both import and export. Log View 5 and
plain ASCII import.

DEVICES. Device support includes TR-compatible CW keying and band
switching using the LPT port, SO2R control using the Top-Ten devices
DX-DOUBLER, internal W9XT voice keyer, external voice keying, various
forms of PTT control and CW keying using a sound card and simple audio
detector. The control panel works with all Icom, Kenwood, Ten-Tec, and
some Yaesu (FT-1000 series, including Mark V), FT-100, FT-817, FT-847,
FT-890, FT-900, FT-990 tested and supported).

REVIEW. I can not (and will not) tell you that YPlog "is the best" ham
software simply because I have not used all of the ham software that's
available, but I can tell you that, for me, it outperforms any other
software I have used. I no longer must have two or three computers
available for the different software; one computer running YPlog
provides me with all of the major functions I need and without
compromise. When you purchase YPlog, you get the total support of it's
author, Tony Field/VE6YP. For instance, when I first purchased YPlog
it's top speed limit was 99wpm. When I asked Tony if he could increase
the top speed to 120wpm, the following day I got a version that had a
max speed limit of 200 wpm! Following an update to TR and CT keyboard
emulation, I started using the updated version in a contest, only to
find out I could not get the CW speed to stay at a set speed. A quick
email to Tony and less than 30 minutes later I had a fix to the problem
and continued with the contest.

YPlog, when interfaced with my IC-781 provides me with VFO A and B
frequency readout in the control screen, A or B selectable, allows me to
select modes, select filters, use the wheel on my mouse to change
frequency, and I can flawlessly key the rig to over 100 wpm using the
computer sound card. You have a type-ahead buffer that is limited by
the amount of RAM available on your PC, you can have multiple 10-message
files saved, you can completely configure the keyboard to your personal
taste.

YPlog allows you to customize which windows and the number of windows
(of information) you have on your monitor. In my case for normal
operation (contest screens are set up quite different) I prefer to have
eight windows showing on my monitor. Control (shows radio information),
logging screen, CW screen, F-key buffer content, DX-cluster screen,
grey-line terminator, country worked/confirmed, and station
worked/confirmed. You can customize the size of each of these screens
also.

When I run contest from home, I do not operate in either a multi-multi
or SO2R environment so I have no practical knowledge of how well those
functions perform. However I've read comments from SO2R users and they
seem to be quite pleased with that function. I was getting very bored
with contesting, mainly because I never felt CT was very "user friendly"
so I therefore limited myself to the CQ DX and SS test. However after
getting YPlog configured and running my first contest with it, the
operation was so intuitive that suddenly I found I couldn't wait for the
next contest! Contest configuration is almost completely customizable.

You can configure your own keyboard layout, use the TR or the CT
emulation for key functions; you can customize the operation of band
mapping; double click to move to a packet spot, have automatic dupe
checking, quickly erase a log field, quickly or automatically switch
from the Run mode to the S&P mode, send your CQ or contest exchange at
variable speeds, and monitor your real-time score and your run rates.

The one thing I do not like about YPlog is the evaluation version. I
think it is too restrictive, to the point you can not try the CW
keyboard and all of it's functions, you can not simulate a contest so
you can try the contesting function and there are several cosmetic
features that are disabled until you register the program. Hopefully
Tony will soon release a either a time-limited or a log-limited but
complete evaluation version so you can test all of YPlog's features.

I think if your going to use a computer in your shack, you at least owe
it to yourself to try YPlog before you decide which is the "best"!

THE THIRD (AND LAST) TOWER GOES UP AT K3DI by Dick Wilder, K3DI

Climbers Frank W3LPL and Don K4ZA and ground crew Dave W3OQ, Ross W2OK,
Dan K2YWE, and Dick K3DI raised a 100' Rohn 45 in the morning of
September 28th and topped it off in the afternoon with a Force12 C31XR
14 element tribander. The other two towers are 80' of Rohn 25 with a
HyGain 40CD2 2-el 40m on one and a HyGain TH7-DX tribander on the other.
At the present two wires are up, an 80 meter half wave folded dipole and
160 meter "T" which is really a 5.2 MHz half wave with a feed line of
70-feet of shorted RG-58. Additional wires, especially for 160, are
planned.

The shack has two operating positions with room to add a third. I am
looking for operators for all of the club competition contests listed on
the reference page. During this season I expect to enter all contests
as unlimited to help the maximum scores and so new operators can become
good with CT.

As yet I only have made brief inconclusive on air comparisons of the
C31XR and TH7DX. During the CQWW-Ph the C31XR and non-members W4EE and
SM0WKA (aka SM0W) and members W3ICM and K3DI piled up the largest score
yet from this station. After the contest I asked Teemu ("Tom" is his
radio name) SM0WKA how he learned to speak English so fast seeing it is
his third language. (His Finnish family emigrated to Sweden.)
Grinning, this 20 year old replied that in language lab he played the
English tape at double speed. Thanks to W3LPL who had a full staff and
passed Teemu to me.


Carroll County PVRC Meeting Minutes
By Jim Nitzberg, WX3B Oct 18, 2002

In attendance were the following members:
WX3B, AK3Z, N3SB, NY3A, N3VOP, W3ARS, WX3F, AA3XZ, and W3SY.
Guests: WA3G, N3WM, K1RH, K1RH/XYL, and K3ZE

This was our First fall meeting þ and of course the main topic of
conversation that could be heard echoing around the table were station
improvements, past, present and future. The table was buzzing with
plans for the upcoming CQWW Phone and Sweepstakes competitions.

This was WA3G, John Lynchþs first meeting!
John is interested in becoming a PVRC member and expanding his
contesting abilities. He will be available during the upcoming season
to help out team WX3B. Weþre hoping for a good score from John during
the Sweepstakes event this year. Welcome John, and weþre looking
forward to having you as a member.

Rob Heath, K1RH and his wife Theresa were delightful dinner guests þ and
this was Rob's second dinner, but actually his third meeting. Now we
just need to vote him into the club so he can begin contributing. Rob
is looking forward to contributing scores to PVRC þ and he is testing
out his new secret weapon: the Heil headset!

This was also K3ZE's (Al) first PVRC meeting. He is very interested in
joining this group and we're searching for his second meeting so he can
be voted into the club þ hopefully BEFORE you read this article. Al is
also a member of the Carroll County Amateur Radio Club.

John, AK3Z is making statements about his 160 Meter inverted L again.
WE suspect he's gearing up for the 160 contests. It's good that thereþs
another station in Carroll County with a big signal on 160.

Steve, NY3A is enjoying the fruits of his two networked logging
computers running writelog. Steve uses two computers to control his
SO2R station. Steve is actually considering running high power for
Sweepstakes/CW this year.

Steve, N3SB is getting excited about his upcoming Dxpedition to VP5 for
the ARRL DX CW contest. In addition, ANOTHER toy has landed on his
doorstep þ and Icom 781. This new radio will be making its debut on the
10 meter operating position at WX3B.

Bill, N3WM came to be with the Carroll Country Group because he knows us
well. While he dabbles in contests þ we have to set the hook and get
him VERY interested in contesting. He already has many of the symptoms
of a contester (runs his own business, is an executive at the radio
clubþ) so itþs just a matter of time before he's recruited!

Steve, W3SY has also been contemplating what he could do to have more
fun in SS/Phone this year. His answer involves running a KW and
entering SS in high power mode. We also see that Steve has the
limelight in November QST for humorous correspondence about breaking
those BIG pileups!

Brian, AA3XZ mentioned that he might try and participate in sweepstakes
from his home. Also, the Carroll County Amateur Radio Club is doing a
Sweepstakes effort in phone this year.

Clint, W3ARS talked about his 432mhz antenna(?) and of course Clint
will be active from both his home station and the Club Station K3PZN
during Sweepstakes.

Mike, N3VOP mentioned the Carroll County Hamfest at the end of October.
He is in charge of the special events station which should have a very
special time since it is CQWW weekend.

Larry, WX3F visited at the beginning of the meeting but due to work þ he
had to leave early. Larry, weþre counting on you for those 1,000 SS
QSOs!

Jim, WX3B has decided that 2 element Quads are great antennas. The 10
meter operating position now generates a respectable signal thanks to
Lightning boltþs best þ a monoband quad up only 33 feet. It packs a
SERIOUS punch, and to Europe it's almost always louder than my Yagi up
55 feet.

After the dinner - a group of us adorned to WX3B to do some OPERATING!
John, WA3G was keeping 75 meters active and working Europeans by the
handful. NY3A got on 15 meters and proceeded to work JA, Tonga and a
few others. W3SY was cracking pileups on 20 meters. And Rob, K1RH
could be seen tinkering around with 40 meters þ but I donþt know if he
made contacts! It was a good test of band pass filters around the
shack. The evening didnþt end until well after midnight and many QSOs
in the logs. It was good seeing all those positions operating þ Now if
I can just keep people in those chairs for the other 45 hours during a
real contest!

Our group announced a regional Sweepstakes Award program during our
meeting. Al, K3ZE has volunteered to produce the very farmable award
certificates, complete with full color PVRC logo þ to be signed by Jim
Nitzberg and Brian McGinness. An award will be issued to any Carroll
County PVRC member who submits their Sweepstakes score. Special
recognition will be given to those who are first time contributors. In
addition, there will be several other awards to be finalized before the
competition. Best wishes to all for the upcoming contest season!

CVCC MEETING 10/8/2002 by John Youell, W4TNX

The þpre-meetingþ at the þCrazy Greekþ restaurant had 22 people present.
Steve (K4EU) came down from the Culpepper area and brought our guest
speaker, Ken (K4ZW). Paul (K4JA) and Bruce (W3BP) came down from the
Callao area. We overflowed our normal corner alcove into three tables in
the þcivilianþ area. Several others joined us at the regular meeting
place and counting the couple of folks that joined us for supper, but
couldnþt make the meeting, we had about 30 present for the evening.

Bob (W4DR) opened the meeting at 7PM with greetings and in keeping with
our recent format, we did introductions around the room asking for a
recent good or bad radio related experience. Bob started with the good
news that he has now received his 10M P5 QSL. Jon (W4HZ) hopes to have
his new rotator up in 2 weeks and AC (W4HJ) has been off the air
recently. Ronnie (WU4G) has been QRX radio while in the job hunt mode
and Tom (K4JM) said hi and was glad to be here. Marie (K4KML) worked Sri
Lanka for a new one on 15M and Becky (KS4RX) said the Virginia Beach
hamfest was a real disappointment. Tony (KC4AUF) worked JD0 (Ogasawara).
Paul (K4JA) said something like "nothing but a few small projects going
on" (anyone believe this?). Steve (K4EU) heard the P5! Seriously, Steve
recently returned from a trip to Kentucky, where he attended a gathering
of some of the Kentucky DX Association members, including his DX manager
of 25 years WA4QMQ. Steve presented WA4QMQ a plaque commemorating &
thanking him for his years of service. Ed (NW4B) said hi to the group
and Jim (KO4XB) said he didnþt get the P5, but got a P6 instead. AJ
(W4NM) did not go to the Virginia Beach hamfest (thatþs like our
Treasurer, saving his cash in case he has to bail us out!).

Jim (KZ5OH) is now back on the air, 1 mile or less from my QTH.
Fortunately, I havenþt heard Jim yet, but I'm afraid it's going to be
ear splitting when I do! Ralph (N4EHJ) got some new band countries (BCs)
and Roy (WK4Y) got 23 new BCs. Barry (KF4QQY) didnþt get the P5, but our
guest speaker Ken (K4ZW) got K4JA from his DX-pedition to JT land. Jason
(KG4PMJ) said hi, but no DX.

Bob (NK4H), uncharacteristically, (but probably owing to the HUGE
portions of food consumed at þthe Greekþ) had nothing to offer radio-
wise. Bob (W4MYA) said he hasnþt been doing much (probably only keeping
his dozen plus radios and dozens of antennas fed with RF þ I did hear
later that he þplayedþ in the WAE contest). Dave (N4DWK) has now hit 200
DXCC entities þ great milestone Dave! Puck (aka the Puckster, W4PM) said
he called CQ, but the P5 wouldnþt answer. Also, Puck pointed out that he
recently worked an 18 year old at 40 WPM on CW. Don (K7MX) worked a KH6
from his mobile and Dennis (N4DEN) has been keeping our cluster going.

This author, John (W4TNX) thanked the contributors to the þTNX DXþ
column of the CVCC newsletter and requests that input keeps coming as
well as any "member profile" information. Just as we were wrapping up
this phase of the meeting, Park (N4KFD) opened the door, introduced
himself and for his contribution said þLateþ.

Bob (W4DR) asked about recent contesting and the upcoming CQ DX SSB
Contest at the end of this month. W4MYA said he is ready to go for the
CQ DX SSB Contest as a M/M and that he did þplayþ in the recent WAE
contest. K4JA is 3rd claimed high score in the world in the WAE (way to
go Paul!) and is going to try the new M/2 class in the CQ SSB.

Dennis (N4DEN) reports that packet is going OK on RF as well as
Internet, but he could use any "dead" TNCs you may have.

AJ (W4NM) gave a Treasurerþs report and we are still solvent! This
author (and past ex-president) felt guilty about the way I left the
treasury, so I paid my 2003 dues tonight!

We have been looking for alternate meeting sites and Ralph (N4EHJ), Park
(N4KFD) and Dennis (N4DEN) had all done their homework and offered the
following options, respectively: Direct Health / Henrico Doctors Parham
Road, Mechanicsville near 295/Meadowville and Dennis's church near
Tucker H.S. (I hope I got most of that close to right - the info was
coming faster than I could take good notes). We decided that we would
try Ralphþs suggested meeting place next month, so will need good
directions in next monthþs newsletter.

Ken Claerbout (K4ZW) was the featured speaker for the evening. He gave a
very FB 35 to 40 minute power point presentation on his recent trips to
Mongolia in November of 2001 and September of 2002. There is no way that
I can give Ken due credit in a short write-up, so please take my word it
was a FB presentation. In addition to having some DXing fun and setting
a contest record from JT land, Ken helped his host Chak (JT1CO) install
a Titanex vertical for 80/160M. This should allow low-band DX'ers a
chance at zone 23 in the future. Ken had several slides of the local
hams and their þbeverages and beverage antennasþ, causes of local
þQRMooþ (harmful to beverage antennas), QTH's and beam antennas, plus
some tourist pictures of buildings, countryside, shrines and museums. He
also had a slide of an old JT club log with "W4MYA's" call in it. Ken
handled several questions throughout the presentation and was given a
deserving ovation at the end! Great job Ken!

The last order of business was a motion for the CVCC to endorse a
nomination for W4MYA to the CQ Contest Hall of Fame. This nomination was
carried unanimously and Bob (W4DR) will proceed with steps to elevate
our wishes to the PVRC to be a sponsoring organization for one of itþs
highest scoring contributors.

A good time was had by all and we look forward to an excellent contest
season. Stay tuned for directions to the CVCC meeting next month, it
will be at a different place (time also?)!

OCTOBER LARC REGIONAL PVRC MINUTES by Pud Reaver, W3YD

The Laurel Regional Chapter of PVRC met after the regular LARC meeting
Oct 23. Members in attendance included W3YD, KB3DVC, KB3BWR, KT3D,
KA8YPY, NX3K, K3HDM, W3DAD, N3TZA, and N3XL, who was attending his
second meeting and was nominated for membership. We have forwarded his
name to the Central Region for nomination; we are slowing approaching
the magic number (10) so we can vote in members by ourselves.

We discussed the upcoming major contests for us (CQWW, SS, and ARRL
10-meter), and reminded ourselves that participation with the club at
W3LRC did not rule out also working a few hours from the home QTH.
Pud/W3YD and Kevin/W3DAD will be doing this with back-up rigs, since
both have sent their OMNI VI PLUS stations down to Sevierville for
maintenance and tune-up. Dennis/KT3D will be trying out the N1MM
logging program he downloaded and hooked up to his Yaesu. Most others,
if time permits, will be helping the club W3LRC.

SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA CHAPTER PVRC MEETING MINUTES
by David Jones, N4JED, SWVA Sec

The Southwest Virginia Chapter PVRC met Friday October 6 at the Roanoker
Restaurant. Present were K1GG, WM3T and KF4OKG, N4EL and KA4BSA, N4GU,
N4JED, W4JAM and W0MAN.

Following an excellent dinner, Gordon K1GG started the meeting on behalf
of the nominating committee. New officers were proposed - Mike N4GU as
chairman and David N4JED as secretary. A unanimous vote followed with
the two taking office immediately after. Thanks were expressed to John
K4IQ for his hard work heading the chapter since it's formation five
years ago. Mike N4GU was also commended for his service as chapter
secretary.

General discussion followed ranging from VHF qso party to 80 meter dx
contesting. VHF contest activity appeared down and only two chapter
members reported operating. N4JED turned in a WAE and VHF score - though
small. Nat N4EL led a discussion on installing the new Rigrunner Power
Strip. Highly recommended it both operationally and construction wise.
Methods and strategies for operating 80 meters in contests were
discussed along with the difficulty of holding a frequency on the band.
John W4JAM discussed several of his operating experiences on 80 from
Florida and places and offered advice. Stacking and operating of
rotating dipoles on 80 were also mentioned. An impromptu vote of logging
software found CT and Writelog as the two top used programs with a
variety of other commercial and free programs cited.

Everyone was encouraged to participate in the upcoming contests and to
submit their scores regardless of how small. Members were reminded that
the Southwest Virginia Chapter was running its own 5 mil contest
concurrent with the PVRC program to encourage local participation.
Next meeting scheduled for Friday November 1 at the Roanoker Restaurant.
Holiday meeting to occur in January. Members were asked to check their
calendars and let N4GU know their availability. Meeting was adjourned to
the parking lot.

COMMENTS FROM THE EDITOR, K3DI

What can we do to boost our scores? Clearly the short range need is to
get more stations on, to operate more hours, and send in ALL logs. This
augmented by station improvements.

However, I suggest that we should not loose sight of the fact that
future years rely on our obtaining new members during today's battles.
I edit a monthly CONTESTING column in the AUTOCALL beamed to new Hams to
get them into contesting. (I'm begging for an article for that column.)
During a contest, I note stations in or near Anne Arundel county and
telephone them after the contest to talk about PVRC and operating at
K3DI. I picked up W3OQ so far.

What can you do? Perhaps you can enter less as SO or SOA, invite a
nearby ham over, hook his 100W rig to a spare antenna, and enter as
multi-something -- fun and more club points even if it's not a winner as
a station. Also, perhaps you have a chance to talk up contesting at
your local Ham club meeting and form a new chapter.

I plan on running as unlimited in ALL 5M contests. This will allow the
greatest flexibility in scheduling ops, the greatest points for PVRC,
and probably allow scheduling a new contester on slower bands while the
op develop interest and skills.

The prior comments are sort of traditional. A new thought is using our
postage imprint to cheaply send direct mail (200 pieces minimum)
solicitations to all non-member stations in our area who have submitted
a score in any contest. This effort would take somebody to extract
calls from magazine or internet contest listing.

The printing cost of the direct mail approach could be covered by
commercial advertising income from the PVRC NEWSLETTER. This will need
somebody to be the PVRC NEWSLETTER advertising manager. (It's overload
for me to do it.)

Perhaps the direct mail approach could be handled by three persons.
1. PVRC advertising manager.
2. Extractor of calls for results
3. Preparer of the mailer. I'll help.

I have one question. What is SMC doing that works?
