HOA != no radio, it just means you have to be more creative and work with what
you have.  It's not perfect, but I've been able to get around the world.
PSK-31 is a big part of that success.  Digital modes let you do things that
would not be possible with voice.  :-)

Pretty much did same thing and I had days when I didn’t know if I was coming or going.  But I completed it faster than most.  Completing 366 with the terrible conditions we have now it a better feat.

Hah!  I spent a lot of time napping on the couch to get the 24/7 award.  Wake

up every hour, check the waterfall, go back to napping.  If I got lucky early

in the hour, I could get a solid 90 minutes of sleep before trying again. :-)

 

Definitely a marathon, not a sprint.

*GOOD JOB, Steve*.

Looks like your latest upload got you the 4 missing dates and gives you the hard to get *366 Award*.

It also looks like you should be qualified for the *Clock and Calendar Award* since you do have the *24/7 Award* already.
Very cool, indeed. It's a long road, but worth the investment. :-)

That may not be a bad idea. I'll have to see if I can put something together
that can plug the holes if it can't be fixed otherwise. Replacing the scorer
is going to be something else I have to address sooner or later; might as well
be sooner.

Considering the recent "challenges" with the club, it's entirely likely many of
the contest scorings may be busted.

Time Blocks

 

After posting my topic "confused", I don't feel alone.  Looks like this topic is not new and will probably surface again.  When I went to upload my log I realized that the scorer wanted three logs, one for each day.  Since the scorer knows the rules and enforces them, why not let the scorer do it's job and determine if it's a dupe.  It probably takes less time to give the exchange than explaining the rules and if the station is ignored and they keep trying it messes things up for everyone.
Since the purpose of the contest is to get as many stations on the air it doesn't make any sense to label a contact with a station you worked the day before a dupe.  By doing that you are going into a new day knowing 70 or 80% of the stations are dupes.  That's not a lot of fun.  Imagine what it would be like to score the contest if we have to go to manual scoreing.
