N5SJ will be in town Thursday, so I thought it would be a good time to get together for lunch and talk about things VHF.

We will meet at Pho Thien An restaurant, 7010 Central SE at 1130. This is the restaurant formerly known as Que Huang, where I have had lunch with many of you before. New name, slightly different menu, but still good food.

Let me know if you think you are coming so I can tell them how many to set up for.

See you Thursday! - Duffey KK6MC

Re: CQWW VHF results database

Keith Morehouse
 

To amplify, the 2018 scores have this option and it will be available going forward.  The data is available for 2017 and will be added ASAP.  It's doubtful any score before 2017 will have this option.

CQWW VHF results database

Keith Morehouse
 

I noticed that there was no club information present with the CQWW VHF on-line databases, so I contacted the new 'boss', K9JK, and requested that he look into making it available.  It turns out the info was in the database, just not visible. 

Now, you have the option to display club data for all entries by selecting the 'SHOW CLUB" click box in the SELECT FILTER window.

Re: KK6MC/r in January Contest

Michael Daly
 

Keith,

I have an 18 element 432 beam up about 60’.  Without too much effort I could add another.  But I think we can work with what I have . I did Santa Fe, Flagstaff and wet central AZ on 432 in the last contest.

My question to Jim was about his extended band coverage – is it worth it – and his answer was yes.  I have a 222 converter, but still in the box.  Someday…

Fortunately there is no limit on EIRP, more elements in the air can work wonders. I have made to path through the mountains from Socorro to El Paso (250km+/-) on 432 cw with my 50w, an old piece of RG8X and 6el @ 15'. Perseverance and dumb luck can work wonders.

 

From Gallup Mike should be in good shape to work stations on high ground all the way to Phoenix at least. Probably more available stations than NM and CO combined.

Mike, if you're thinking about adding bands, with how strong you are on 2M, I'm sure we could work on 432 easily (depending on your power out - I have a KW) and probably on 900 and possibly on 1296.  If I recall correctly, you are louder on 2 then W7QQ, given equivalent power and I can work him on 432.  I think we have a better geographic path between us then I do to Santa Fe.

 

Of course, I need to put the other antennas back up, but the equipment is here, including the high power - KW on 432 & 900 and 150W on 1296.

Your VHF Rover outings are simply mind boggling!
The effort you put into planning, preparations, and the scale of each trek
