That's a double-edged sword. While it might reduce the GreenieHunters™, the numbers of insurance Qs will skyrocket, especially on the low bands. I've said for years that the Clublog guys ought to have the option of band and mode checkboxes (work the DX on 20 phone and you get a check in the PHONE section and in the BAND section under 20. No grid/matrix, just a mode section and a band section. Or have another one with only one checkbox (MIXED) if the DXpedition is activating something like BS7 or P5 and doesn't want band-chasers, but rather to maximize uniques.

Pete,

What does the leaderboard and insurance Qs have anything to do with each other?  One could still find out if his contacts are in the log without the use of the leaderboard.

I like your idea of the band and mode checkboxes.  Have you provided your suggestion to Clublog?  If not I encourage you to do so.

Why no CW so far?  Guess I was mistaken....... thought Zorro favored CW operation.

I hope he does CW also.  All the crap on 20 meters USB at nite is unreal.  It's disturbing the net-nutters way of life with the pile up spread so we have to put up with their childish behavior.

Hi

i have to go with W8JX, keep the 811H or go for the AL80B.
I have an AL572B(CXE) amp, wich I had gone for the AL80B, a bit less power , but much more reliable as the AL572B amp.
But yrs ago the AL80B was more expensive as the AL572B and the 3-500 tubes were more expencive to as for 4 x 572B, now it is the other way around it is very hard to find decent 572B tubes now.

Some card checkers will handle cards by mail.  Email the nearest one and ask.  If he does, mail him the cards and the paperwork.  Include an SASE to return the cards to you and an ASE to send the application to the ARRL.

Maybe one of your cards has a glitch and requires additional scrutiny.

The thing is, lightning will hit where it hits, and there is NOTHING that will help a direct hit... 

A direct hit will likely destroy the antenna and coax but proper grounding can minimize damage to the building by giving it a low impedance path to ground without following the coax into the building. Then again, most lightning damage is caused by induced currents from a strike to something else nearby and proper grounding can prevent damage from that in many cases.

A PE probably won't sign anything guaranteeing that the antenna can't cause any damage to the building but he may state that your antenna installation meets accepted safety standards and is properly bonded to building steel in order to minimize any lightning damage to the building.

 

These are good points but if a hit occurs they will blame antenna and bill its owner for all damages and given the potential of a multiple family building there is a lot that could be damaged and one is foolish to accept that liability. Ham radio is not worth that.

BTW........ The leaderboard function on clublog will NOT be active.  BRAVO!

That's a double-edged sword. While it might reduce the GreenieHunters™, the numbers of insurance Qs will skyrocket, especially on the low bands.

I worked Nigel on 17m at 1949z on Sept. 11th. Three calls with the amp, and confirmed via LoTW within 36 hours. Didn't need it for a new one but it'd been a few years since my last ZD9.

He's booming in on 12CW now as many are saying. Very easy to work.

"...as some of us are still NOT retired and have to WORK during the day (12m & 17m)..."

I've been in ur situation many years ago and also missed a lot of good DX during the time when I had to work! But, I made out and caught them during the early evenings, or when changing my kids diapers at 3 AM! Also, we did not have the WARC bands then to help out when propagation made those bands useful.

Look for them on CW to give you the best chance! I usually use SSB as the last resort or in the case of E30FB, the only chance so far!

Does the problem occur on 10 meters? Have you tried this with a dummy load? The reason I ask is to make sure the problem is caused by RF rather than some USB communication sent by the radio that corrupts the program.

When I judge new software, I use three criteria:

1) Cost

I used HRD 6 in my comparison for two reasons.  There is no product support for the earlier versions, so I was unable to make it work with my system using HRD 5.  Also HRD does not even acknowledge the earlier versions on their website, so a new ham might not even know that there is an older, free version available.  Therefore,:  DXL free, HRD $99.95 (less 15% 9/2014) and $49.95/yr for continued support and upgrades.

HRD v5.24.38 is still out there. Here is one of many places: http://www.iw5edi.com/software/ham-radio-deluxe-5-download-links. No, you can't get "official" support from HRDSoftware, LLC, but there are still plenty of users here and on QRZ that use it that should be able to help you. If they can't, then at least you are not out anything other than your time.

While there are certainly many changes (improvements?) in HRD v6.2, you only have 30 days to get it up and running on your system and decide if it suitable to your needs. While v5.24 may not have all the "bells & whistles" as v6.2, it is similar enough for you to determine if it is right for you without being crippled by the 30 day limitation. The good news is that if you do eventually decide that you want the latest (and greatest?) version of HRD, the transition is fairly painless and seamless from v5.2 to v6.2.

Even then, I strongly urge you to take full advantage of the 30 day trial period before sending them any of your hard-earned money because once they have it, you will never see that money again. They are quite clear about this and they are unwilling to make exceptions under any circumstances.

2) Customer Service

I required help in making both programs work to my satisfaction. HRD provides a forum that took several days for approval to post questions, and they do provide customer support by phone and email.  In my opinion, they need to make it easier to find the customer support information.  Clicking help and support while in HRD only provides a link to the HRD forum.  I accidentally found the phone number and email customer support info in small letters under the license key manager.  But once I found that, I was able to get courteous, accurate answers to my questions and help to make HRD work.

I am glad they were able to answer your questions to your satisfaction.
