DM86 activation needed for 6M big sig K1TOL

Keith Morehouse
 

6M DXer K1TOL worked W7D in DM47 for his next-to-last FFMA grid.  The only one he currently needs is DM86.

Is there someone on here with a 3 or 5 el beam and 100W+ who might be able to head that way for a day or two and try to hit some propagation for Lefty.  E season should easily run through the 2nd week of July, but the earlier the better.

You would need to coordinate directly with K1TOL on this.

FYI: VHF grid chasers interested in (rare) grid DM47 can try to catch

W7D there in the early morning hours on Thursday 12 June. They are

running 1 kW on 6 and 2 with big antennas and can be worked in DM65 on

USB. Look for them on 144.200 and 50.180 (alternate 50.185) and FT8

50.313. Also on MSK144 50.260 and MSK144 144.150 although they are

probably too close for meteor scatter in most of NM.

aa5b vhf contest

Bruce Draper
 

Just 6 meters for me, and only 5-6 hours. Ended up with about 120 QSOs. Spent more time than that over the weekend building a 6-element 6-meter yagi from wire, rope, and pvc, but that’s a story for another time...

I was determined not to let this be an FT8 contest for me, but ended up on 50.313 much of the time anyway. Had the most fun when there was coast-to-coast activity on cw and phone on Sunday. 

Aside from all the other reasons not to like FT8, here’s another — call it dynamic range, for lack of a better term.  When the signals are clean, a few big stations in the same town can coexist on the cw and phone bands. When W5ABC is 30 dB over S9 on 50.130, just move up to 50.140 and it usually becomes a non-issue. But on FT8, as it is practiced now, everyone is in your passband and it is very difficult to copy the weak signals (and isn’t that what the WS in WSJT is all about?) when the radio’s gain is reduced by the cross-town guy who is literally 50 dB louder. We need another 1 or 2 watering holes, spaced maybe 20 kHz apart. Maybe someone will get that going by the next contest.

Hi Steve,

That was a pretty neat Q on 2 meters early in the contest. Looks like we have a path.

Sorry you got called out but tu for ur service on that fire. We take it for granted but some body’s got to do that work.

Sunday morning, when I was in DM54 on Highway 117, I pointed the beams your way and called several times. Then, when I was returning from there, a convoy of Forest Service/Hot Shot vehicles passed me and I wondered if you had gotten called out. Hope Field Day and CQ WW VHF will be better. - Duffey

Well, I thought this year would be different.

I am an emergency employee of the US forest service, doing comms work on big forest fires, as needed.

Up until last weekend, it has been a very quiet fire season. Guess what changed around 4 PM on Saturday ? I have been working in Catron county since early Sunday AM.

Don't have my very limited log with me. Made some 6 meter FT8. A few 2 meter SSB. Working W7QQ was a pretty good haul from DM52XT.

Maybe the CQ VHF contest will work.

Mike,
Just so I am clear, - this is moving to a Slack channel and replacing the PHP based chat page?

I would like to try upgrading the NMVHF chat page to a full-featured
slack channel.  Click or copy the link below to do the free sign-up;

If so inclined, there is also a slack app for your smartphone (that
admittedly I have not tried yet) that bypasses the need to be on the
NMVHF website. You'll have direct access anywhere you have cell
coverage. Might be more useful during contests and for alerting people
to Es openings when they are away from email.

This is an experiment with invites sent only to subscribers of the nmvhf
mailing list. Please let me know if you have questions or problems. If
there is a consensus, we can transition from our existing simple and
somewhat buggy web app to slack for a better experience.

Just so I am clear, - this is moving to a Slack channel and replacing the PHP based chat page?

I would like to try upgrading the NMVHF chat page to a full-featured

If so inclined, there is also a slack app for your smartphone (that
admittedly I have not tried yet) that bypasses the need to be on the
NMVHF website. You'll have direct access anywhere you have cell
coverage. Might be more useful during contests and for alerting people
to Es openings when they are away from email.

This is an experiment with invites sent only to subscribers of the nmvhf
mailing list. Please let me know if you have questions or problems. If
there is a consensus, we can transition from our existing simple and
somewhat buggy web app to slack for a better experience.

Re: K5TA VHF test

You did well for your first outing. Your efforts were much appreciated by me. Sorry I did not have time to get 1296 up and running. 

I didn’t realize that you were using two different rigs, but I should have. To get front end protection, key the PTT on both rigs simultaneously but only use the mic or key on one rig. 

Looking forward to you roving. Rover to rover QSOs are always a blast.

Everything worked perfectly, and my new IC-9700 really performed well.  I was chicken, however, so whenever I transmitted, I disconnected all the antennas for the *other* bands.  Not that it really affected my score, since the activity on 144 and 432 was pretty thin.  Didn’t really need to rx on main and sub receivers simultaneously.  Never managed to find a single Q on 1296. 

 

Not a serious or full-time effort in any way – mainly a “teaching moment” – self-education.

 

Nice to work Duffey at all of his stops (but not exactly all band/stops).

 

Onward and upward for future events.

Re: N2IC VHF Contest

Sunday morning, when I was in DM54 on Highway 117, I pointed the beams your way and called several times. Then, when I was returning from there, a convoy of Forest Service/Hot Shot vehicles passed me and I wondered if you had gotten called out. Hope Field Day and CQ WW VHF will be better. - Duffey

Well, I thought this year would be different.

I am an emergency employee of the US forest service, doing comms work on big forest fires, as needed.

Up until last weekend, it has been a very quiet fire season. Guess what changed around 4 PM on Saturday ? I have been working in Catron county since early Sunday AM.

Don't have my very limited log with me. Made some 6 meter FT8. A few 2 meter SSB. Working W7QQ was a pretty good haul from DM52XT.

Maybe the CQ VHF contest will work.

Can confirm that each workspace requires separate login.  There is a very active slack workspace that has been setup for VHF weak signal with several topical channels.  You can get access here:
