It's In the Bag Now

Well HAM fans, the PODXS 070 Three Day Weekend contest is over. That's right at 23:59 UTC the 3 Day Weekend finished. Robin (AJ4IJ) and myself had an absolute blast. We both ended up with a total of 166 contact each believe it or not. However, I have to bow down to her as she ended up with a couple more multipliers than I did and 200 extra bonus points than me. So congrats to you Honey, you wopped the tar out of me. Hi Hi.

It was a very fun contest and I would like to thank everyone that contacted us both. We can now enter the Coveted LONP club. What's that some of you may ask? It's the prestigious Loyal Order of Narrow-Banded Phaseshifters. This is an award given to all 070 members for contacting 100 070 members on PSK31.

Well I've stared at a computer screen for far too long this weekend as you can imagine so I'mgoing to go QRT and say 73 to all. Catch you down the log and hope to see you on the waterfall again real soon.

The 070 3 Day Weekend Contest

Sorry I've been away for so long. Let me tell you, it's been crazy hectic around here. Anyway, this evening started the PODXS070 club's 3 Day weekend contest. For all those into PSK you should really look into this club. This contest is focused on 070 members contacting other members, so unfortunately if you aren't a member this contest wouldn't be fun for you.

Regardless of the fact, Robin (AJ4IJ) and myself are participating and have already racked up a quite a few contacts. However, I have to work in the morning and must retire at this time. However, we will both be back "On The Air" tomorrow. So all 070 members keep an eye out for us. we will definitely be on 20, 40, and 80. If 6, 10, and 15 are open we will be there too. Regretfully we do not have an antenna for 160 at this time so it's out of the question at this time.

Good luck to all my fellow 070 members and see ya on the waterfall tomorrow.

73 de AJ4JD,
