Re: VHF contest experiences?

John Klem
 

Saturday was a pretty good day.  I was able to work quite a few in all directions on 6 m FT8 from the DM56/66 line south of Bloomfield, then moved to just DM66 for more.  I had a few SSB QSOs to 6 land in the evening, but despite huge signals just couldn't sustain that.

I came home, got 4 hours sleep, and then drove to the DM85/86 line between Tucumcari and Clayton for a late start Sunday.  Things were much tougher there, with marginal conditions on 6 m and almost no cell service.  I was informed by a polite but humorless rancher that the first spot I operated from, which I thought was a county road, was a private road.  The second spot was right next to power lines that were somewhat noisy.  To top it off, my 6 m antenna developed an electrical problem (that I haven't yet had the right combination of time and courage to fully investigate) that required me to quit in the late afternoon.

I had zero QSOs above 6 m, which is a real problem considering the additional effort required to carry antennas for 2 and 432.  So I will be addressing that one way or another in future contests.

161 QSO points, 83 multipliers, 13,363 points, give or take.

Trying to attempt different things in the VHF/UHF contest, so I did a SOP operation
instead of my usual rove, which has been on hiatus during the pandemic.
Eventually I want to mount a full out SOP effort, but thought I would try a dry
run, not too far from home, with my rover setup. I set up on the Sandia Crest,
which is a tough RFI & intermod environment. I had surplus cavity filters
for 2m and 70 cm which helped a lot. 50MHz had a few problems with weak intermod, but it was possible to work around them without a big impact to the score. 2M with the filter was good, but I didn’t think I was getting out as well as I thought I should.  Not use what the problem is. 432 was also good on Sunday, but on Saturday I had serious intermod problems. Not sure what the difference was, but I parked a bit further away from the tower farm on Sunday. 222MHZ was useless with a 10dB over 9 noise level. People could hear me, but I couldn't hear them. Very frustrating, but now I know I need to get a filter for 222MHz for serious work from where I would like to operate.

I had intended to run the WSJT digital modes to see how they worked with QRP,
but I had problems with both computers, one hardware and one software, so that
was out. I think I missed out on a lot of grids by not having that capability;
so that also goes on the list of things to improve. I could receive OK, and on that basis, I think if I had been active on FT8 I could have doubled my score or better. 

I had some short and weak Es openings, but there was not a lot of activity on
SSB and CW to match the openings. It is a sign of the digital times I guess. I got out better than I thought I would with QRP, and only on occasion did I have to resort to CW to work an SSB station when I was weak there. But, there seemed to  be fewer SSB OPs that were willing to do cross mode QSOs than in he past. On my attempt to work a fairly strong multi-multi station on CW when they were on SSB, I got a "please try us later when there will be a different operator who knows CW." OK, I get it, I am becoming an anachronism. 

I was pleased with the score and feel more confident with a future more serious
SOP effort. According to the ARRL.org web page, it is a new NM record, but I think that their record stats only go back as far as there are digital logs, to 2002, and that there was a bigger score put up in the 90s.

I will probably be back for a full scale rove in the July CQ WW VHF contest. - Duffey

Re: VHF contest experiences?

I was at the K5QE limited multi-op (6/2/222/432) in EM31 (Texas) and spent most of the time on 6m. The Es was not very good for most of Saturday, but FT8 worked nicely in the marginal conditions yielding plenty of multipliers. Exactly what it was designed for. We had a nice ssb run on Sunday morning when I was sleeping. I stayed up the entire previous night working MSK144 meteor scatter and it was very productive. I also made about a dozen FT4 QSOs during the contest when conditions allowed and activity was there. We did work a few NM grids, but propagation was largely into the east coast and midwest, at least when I was operating. 

Lost the 6m amplifier just 8 minutes into the contest, but they had a direct replacement installed and running within 20 minutes! It was like watching an Indy pit stop. This is a SERIOUS operation. We still wound up with 208 grids on 6m.

New Mexico QSO Party -- 2021 Results posted

Brian Mileshosky
 

Greetings —

The 2021 New Mexico QSO Party, which took place last April, was another great success and results have been posted!  Hams from all over New Mexico, the United States, and the world took to HF, 6 meters, and 2 meters for a day of fun and enjoyment.  This was a record breaking year in terms of logs submitted, which we attribute to better propagation, hams rediscovering the magic of radio throughout a year of COVID restrictions (thankfully on the outs), and the super fun State QSO Party Challenge.

A huge thank you goes to the members and leadership of the Taos Amateur Radio Club who sponsored this year's event, as well as to the individuals and clubs who sponsored this year's plaque awards. And, of course, to every person and ham club who participated in the QSO Party.

Here are some statistics from this year's event:

— Logs submitted: 320 (Most ever)
— Total NMQP QSOs logged: 10,197
— Unique New Mexico stations logged: 90
— New Mexico logs submitted: 60
— New Mexico club affiliations reported in logs: 15
— New Mexico counties activated: 32 of 33 (DEB appears not to have been activated)
— US states logged: 50 of 50
— Canadian provinces logged: 6 of 13
— Countries/DXCC entities logged: 29

Complete results, broken down by operating category and special awards can be found under the "Results" link at www.newmexicoqsoparty.org  Photos contributed by those who participated have also been posted and can be viewed by clicking on the “Photos” link.

Congratulations to all!  Plaques and participant certificates will be produced and delivered in the coming weeks.

The New Mexico QSO Party returns on the second Saturday of April 2022 -- we hope you and your club will join the fun.

73,
Brian N5ZGT

I am going to try something different this contest.

I will be operating QRP Portable from the Crest. I will operate from the
lower parking lot on Saturday and from the upper parking lot on Sunday. The
lower parking lot is likely to be less crowded on Saturday, but paths to the
west are limited. On Sunday I can probably get to the crest early enough to
get a parking spot on the upper lot, which has much better paths to the
west.

I will operate 50MHz to 1296MHz, 10 W per band, SSB, CW, FT8, FT4, and,
optimistically, MSK144. Yagis on all bands.

This is practice for a more ambitious effort at a later date. - Duffey KK6MC

W0AMT in the June VHF Contest

Jonathan Fox - W0AMT
 

I am going to Mount Sedgwick (W5N/CO-001) on Saturday. The grid is DM55we. I plan to be on at the start of the contest and will stay for a couple hours weather depending. I am hoping to work into Arizona from there.

I will setup somewhere in the south valley or southeast mesa on Sunday. Most likely DM64qx.

I will finish the contest in my backyard which is DM65rd.

I will have 6, 2, 222, and 432 QRP. I will use a PAR Moxon for 6, Dual band Elk Antenna for 2 and 432, and a 4 element WA5VJB for 222.

Contest roving

John Klem
 

I'll be out this weekend roving during the ARRL June VHF contest. 
 
Saturday at 1800 Z I plan to start on the DM56xo/DM66ao line.  From this location I'll be giving out DM56 for the contest, but both DM56 and DM66 for anyone who wants a QSL.
Depending on how things go, I may or may not move at some point to DM66bm (not on a grid line).

Sunday I'll be operating from the DM85/DM86 line near DM86ja.  My starting time is TBD, but I don't expect it to be early.  It looks like there are two accessible and well-separated points on the line, and I will try to operate from both of them, giving out DM85 from one and DM86 from the other for the contest.

I can operate any mode, but based on past experience DM85 and DM86 are going to be pretty lonely except perhaps on the digital modes.  I'd be happy to try MSK144 (possibly backscatter) or Q65 with anyone who is relatively close but too distant or obstructed for decent troposcatter.

The best way to get my attention (I am hoping) will be on Slack VHF-Chat rover-raregrid.  I will also post updates to Slack NMVHF chat when I move, but not watching that.  I should have internet in DM56/66, but I'm not so sure about DM85/86.  If I'm absent from Slack on Sunday you might try one of my phones at 505-373-4671 or 505-339-5411 (text or voice).

I'll be on 6 (new 3 el. yagi), 2, and 432.

ARRL RF Exposure Presentation via the ADXA Meeting

Bill Mader
 

Good afternoon Folks,

 


Wednesday afternoon we held our monthly meeting on Zoom with nine participants.  We had a guest from OR and a NMVHFS member from FL in addition to our regular members.  I played a new video from the ARRL Learning Center on RF Exposure and the new FCC rules on that subject.


The following attended:

N2GG, Gil, Kent OR

K6IR, John, Kent OR

N5SJ, Mike, Gallup NM

KS5Z, Terry, Lubbock, TX

K5WY, Ty, Los Lunas NM

WB2FKO, Mike, High Springs FL

AG5S, Alden, Santa Fe NM

KG5IDN, Ken, Rio Rancho NM

K8TE, Bill, Rio Rancho NM


I think Tom, K5TEE, of Albuquerque also tried to check it.  I didn’t spot him on Zoom but I did notice a message in my inbox from Zoom.  I received an audio notification whenever someone new logged in.  I apologize if I missed you, Tom.  He and I go way back to our auto racing days.


I included the locations of the participants for fun and to show that distance is no longer a barrier.  Considering “DX” is in the middle of our Association’s acronym, this seems significant.  I played a YouTube video that had participants from CT and MA to viewers from four other States, thanks to the Internet and the technology that supports and uses it.


The rumors about Zoom’s security issues are 98% users’ problems.  They upgraded their security long ago and Zoom is safe application/service used world-wide with great success!  Unless you don’t have a computer or Internet access, there is no valid reason for not joining us the last Wednesday of each month other than your choosing not to do so.


In case you missed the presentation Wednesday, here are some points of interest regarding the current FCC rules on RF Exposure:


New or changed stations must be complying now!

For stations built prior to 3 May 2021, 3 May 2023 is deadline to complete your assessment.

Use http://hintlink.com/power_density.htm for an on-line RF Exposure Calculator.

https://hamradioschool.com/rf-exposure-evaluating-your-station/ is a page with pertinent references and a link to an Excel spreadsheet you can download for use without Internet access.

The link to the free ARRL RF Exposure "book" is: http://www.arrl.org/rf-exposure.  This “book” does NOT contain the updated FCC rules effective 3 May 2021 but is otherwise extremely helpful.

https://www.eznec.com/eznec.htm free version good for modeling antennas like loops, dipoles, small Yagis, etc.

Radios "Marketed prior to 3 May 2021 are 'pretty much' grandfathered."

Remember, evaluation is required, but not measurements.

End-fed antennas and feedlines that are grounded are not necessarily safe due to common mode current.  They require current chokes.  Grounded doesn't necessarily "sink" the RF on the feedline to ground, eliminating RF near persons.

Transmission lines to truly balanced antennas do not radiate RF.  However, our antennas may not be perfectly balanced.  Consider using an MFJ-852 for detecting RF on coax and other cables to determine if you have an RF Exposure issue.

Contact the ARRL Lab if you get in a jam with some weird antenna situation, i.e., not included in the “standard” calculators.  http://www.arrl.org/arrl-assistance

Instruct family members so they are aware to avoid hanging out close to antennas.

Yes, we need to evaluate portable or temporary antennas.

Regardless of false rumors you and others you know may have heard, 5G has more sites, but is safer, not more dangerous, because it uses lower power.

Conduct the evaluation based on the worst case (longest transmission time and/or nearest distance).

Tonight's presentation will be from the ARRL on RF Exposure Rules.  From the ARRL web site:

"The FCC has announced that rule changes detailed in a lengthy 2019 Report and Order governing RF exposure standards go into effect on May 3, 2021. The new rules do not change existing RF exposure (RFE) limits but do require that stations in all services, including amateur radio, be evaluated against existing limits, unless they are exempted. For stations already in place, that evaluation must be completed by May 3, 2023. After May 3 of this year, any new station, or any existing station modified in a way that’s likely to change its RFE profile — such as different antenna or placement or greater power — will need to conduct an evaluation by the date of activation or change."

The video I'll run does an excellent job of explaining what we need to know and due.  It runs just over an hour.  I hope you'll join us tonight.  I'll open the Zoom meeting at 6:15 this evening.

Hello Mike,
I'm interested in the G5500 rotator. El Paso is a LONG way from me near Nashville, TN. If you'd consider taking the rotator to a FedEx pack/ship store, I'll cover the costs.
Would $500 cover the rotator and shipping to 37076?

Thanks,
