Tom, how ya doing on 6M DXCC from Texas ?

Tony N5UD

Mobile?  1  DXCC  29 qsos, all USA. A vertical tuned sort of for 6m doesn't work very well.

From the house, 5 DXCC, with no real 6m antenna, or an amp that covers 6m. I use the internal tuner in the radio to make it happy feeding my T-8 log.

I have managed to work KH6 and S. Cooks Is. on 6m. Pure luck.

 In the past, on a couple of occasions, I've heard about Monk Apollo's RTTY being impossible to read because of a strange speed. That actually was not true during my QSO. However, he was using REVERSE RTTY. So either switch your software mode from RTTY to REVERSE RTTY or on your TCVR switch LSB/USB.

Congrats on the RTTY qso.

I haven't come across him running reversed, but he does use (or did) a 200Hz shift instead of 170Hz.

No I meant from the home. I have few mobile. I find that 6M is the real toughie for 100 from Texas. Likely much easier to do from EC these days what all with more worldwide 6M interest than say 25 years ago.

160M with good antennas at least is open to some place SR and SS during the winter.

Say does it seem 80M is noisier than this time last year ?

Maybe, I didn't spend a lot of time on 80m last year. I was makin hay on the higher bands while what little sun we had was shining.

A 6m beam is on my list after I get a 40m beam off the list.


And back to the thread topic, 9Z4Y, 40m LOTW.  New band confirmation, Challenge point #2402/2312.

A challenge point on 15 meters from 2003:

Station
Call Sign       TF3W
DXCC       ICELAND

Worked       AB8MA

Date/Time       2003-10-25 16:44:00
Mode       SSB (PHONE)
Band       15M
Frequency       21.19700
QSL       2017-02-09 20:28:27

So you have a confirmed QSO on 15 SSB on 21.197 MHz?   



OOPS. Worse than the NIL I once got from a Canadian station. Color me green. Smiley

Sorry. Didn't mean to make light of it.   I guess just don't try and use it for an award.  Or I guess you could remove it from your log, and resubmit your LOTW log, and it would not show up as confirmed.

If no one is doing it that way, there is a probably a very good reason.

I just hope this doesn't hold up my NEXUS application (NEXUS is designed to speed up border crossings for low-risk, pre-approved travellers into Canada and the United States.).

You cannot edit your LOTW log, the main reason Vlad has stopped using it.

I didn't mean edit your LOTW log.  I mean, edit YOUR log, then resubmit your TQSL'ed ADIF file and upload that.   If LOTW does not find a match, then it can't be confirmed.

It is his QSL record that has that frequency, not mine. LoTW only matches the band.

5A1AL is now on Clublog and has just set up OQRS. Instead of using a QSL manager, he will now be processing QSL cards and LOTW uploads himself.

https://secure.clublog.org/logsearch/5a1al

At the moment, I only see the bureau option. I suspect 5A1AL hasn't yet finished setting up the OQRS, or he might have overlooked the direct option.

Just sent my LoTW request for 5A1AL to Randy W5UE a few days ago. Hope it still works for requests before Feb 10th 2017.

I've been seeing a lot of confirmations from 3, 4, 5 years ago showing up lately.

I worked 5A1AL Abubaker a few hours ago on 17 Meters CW, and the Q is already confirmed in LoTW on my upload!

Wayne,

Thanks for the info. That's a huge improvement from just a few years ago. My first 5A1AL QSO needed to be confirmed via a paper QSL card which took well over a year to arrive. Now Abubaker uses LOTW and does uploads himself and OQRS is available, too.
