Bonus Stations Needed - Three Day Weekend 2019

Requesting Bonus Stations for Three Day Weekend Contest for 2019

It’s that time again! We need Bonus Stations for our 2019 Three Day Weekend contest.  Last year’s Bonus Stations did a bang-up job, and they are welcome to volunteer again. We’d really like to see some of the new guys take this opportunity to expand their world, also.  Last year we had 80 logs submitted. That is up 35% from 2017. We can exceed that if we try!

Last year’s Top Dawg and 1st place Bonus Station was Steve - VA3TPS - from Fenelon Falls, ON Canada.  That was the 4th year in a row that Steve has captured Top Dawg and his 3rd year as top Bonus Station. As much as we’d like to see him win again, it’s about time he was seriously challenged.

If you are interested in becoming a Bonus Station for 2019, send an email to Matt, AK4MK, at  info@... or respond here on the reflector.  He will attempt to ensure that stations are spread around for all to enjoy. Please respond no later than May 19th, so that we have a chance to incorporate the Bonus Stations into the Contest Rules and scoring software on our website.

The Three Day Weekend for 2019 begins the Friday after Memorial Day, May 31, at 0000 UTC Friday (Thursday evening in NA) and runs through 2359 UTC Sunday, June 2, 2019.

Contest details and rules may be found here: Three Day Weekend

Let’s make this another record turnout year and show the Propagation gods we care not for their negative attitudes.

73!

Not much on 20m

Jerry N9AVY
 

Or anywhere else on bands.  Pickins are slim.   Did work a couple stations in AR QP, a special event in TX and one new 070 # . 

 

Seems like 20m is in & out ; one minute you hear a station and by the time you answer them, they’re gone.

 

Hope condition improve soon.   Have been seeing Italian station around 3 PM CDT , but they a few.  I’d have the 20 by now , but missed bunches of them in last couple weeks.

Sitting here for last ½ hour trying to work IT9GHW who was mostly 599.  Too many Europeans calling him or it must have been one-way propagation.  Finally lost him.  During that time also saw IT9PQO a few hz. Lower.  Sure wish we have good conditions again because I really don’t want to fire up amp.

Volunteer Monitors

Interesting Announcement from the Weekly Newsletter. I would love see some PSK operators jump on this. Since I am in Canada, I dont think I would be eligible.

ARRL Invites Applications for Volunteer Monitor Positions

ARRL is now accepting applications from individuals interested in becoming part of the new Volunteer Monitor program, a joint undertaking of the FCC and ARRL. The program seeks volunteers who -- working under the direction of ARRL -- will monitor and survey the Amateur Radio bands both to detect improper activity and to recognize exemplary on-the-air behavior.

Prospective Volunteer Monitors must be ARRL members. They will undergo a training and certification program administered by ARRL, and will be vetted by ARRL through at least one oral interview and a preliminary evaluation by ARRL staff. Such requirements will continue for Volunteer Monitors once they are selected.

Volunteer Monitors will serve 3-year terms at the pleasure of ARRL, and ARRL will reserve the right to terminate the participation of any Volunteer Monitor for any reason.

Volunteer Monitors must be able to utilize state-of-the-art receiving equipment and to access no-cost remote receive sites, if requested. Applicants must possess strong writing and communication skills and an understanding of the importance of thorough documentation. They must have basic word processing and data entry skills and be able to send such information, including recordings, to ARRL electronically.

Applicants must have no history of warning letters or other enforcement-related action from the FCC, must hold a Technician or higher class license, and must have been licensed for at least 3 years.

Applicants should send applications to volunteer-monitor@... for processing.

In February, Riley Hollingsworth, K4ZDH, was named to oversee the development and implementation phases of the Volunteer Monitor program, which will replace the Official Observer (OO) program. Hollingsworth once handled Amateur Radio enforcement for the FCC.

Re: Volunteer Monitors

Jerry N9AVY
 

It’s an updated, revamped version of the old Official Observer Program.  I was an OO for a few years and felt that minuses outweighed the pluses.  Others may have different results. 

 

This new program removes the personal aspect which may be a good thing because some OO’s received death threats and other forms of harassment over the years.

 

Being in Canada Steve, you might no be eligible, but it would hurt to check with ARRL HQ since you do have a U.S. license and you might have to cross border once in a while.

#525 SK

It is with sadness that we report the passing of Mark Crosbie, N8MNI #525, on 1/25/19.

Mark was very active in all the club activities, and a pleasure to work with on the bands. He will be missed by all.

This is sad news, indeed.   Mark and I had many nice rag-chews on 20M PSK31.  

I missed our chats when Mark became less active.  I remember seeing his callsign CQing for an hour or so on 20M FT8 last fall, but I was unable to work him. 

I found this obituary for Mark:


Rest In Peace, old friend.  I’ll miss you.

Thanks for the post and this is very sad news. My most sincere condolences to his family. I have Mark in the log 20 times on 6 bands with 2 modes(PSK31 and FT8) dating back to 2007. He was a great op and will be missed.


Rest in peace Mark,
