Hi Y'all,

Anyone up for a project?  I have a TS 930 that has low output.  Power supply voltage is good so I don't know if it's a bad contact or I fried something.  Really love the radio and would like to get it back on the air.  Don't want to send it out and will reimburse for your trouble.

Thanks
Rob Deyo K4MBZ

Morder code ninja is good. Also, CWops has plenty of CW Academy CW resources (e.g. audi files) you can download to listen to. However, nothing beats real on-the-air practice in the novice bands. Especially the 40 mtr band day and night. It just takes Practice Practice Practice!

Actually, downtown Lenoir City will be closed off from Kingston Street to “C” Street, cars, lined up along the curbs, vendors and exhibits down the center of the road. It’s the Annual Fall Festival…….happens every year. I was hoping to get TLARC involved in this by setting up a booth….might be a good way to show off the Club.

TN QSO Party

Juan Lopez
 

TLARC Members,

The QSO Party starts at 2:00 pm EST today and runs to 11:00 pm EST. Make an effort to get on as many bands and modes to hand out QSOs. You can work both out of state and instate stations. There are quite a few people that will also be county hunters. Please visit TNQP.org to review the rules and suggested frequencies for today. This makes it easy for others to find you calling CQ TN QSO PARTY. Remember to submit your log with credit to TELLIOC LAKE ARC. 

Look for me on all bands operating CW and SSB using the club call KN4DUA from Hamilton County. Please spot me if you hear me.

Hi all,

 

If you haven't seen it yet, MFJ Enterprises is offering a free 160-page PDF book called "73 Dipole and Long-Wire Antennas".   All you need to do is sign up for their free email newsletter - good deals are often offered and you can cancel it later if desired.

 

It's an old book (1992) but these kind of antennas don't change much 😉  Here (attached) is a page from the Table of Contents.  Good stuff.

Re: TN QSO Party

Jeff Buffington N4POD
 

I would beg to differ.  FT8 and FT4 are acceptable digital modes, however, ALL digital modes are equivalent.  If you work someone on FT8 on 20m, you can't work them again in RTTY, because you've already worked them on 20m "digital."  I plan on using FT8,  possibly FT4, and maybe even do some SSB.  Now as for how to configure it... I'm still working on that part.  🤔

From the TNQP.org rules:
QSO Points:
3 points per QSO regardless of mode.
Repeater QSOs DO NOT count (this includes packet digipeaters). However, direct station-to-station packet contacts do count.
On all acceptable bands, CW and other digital modes count separately. For example, you can work W9WI on 3540 kHz CW; 3585 kHz Baudot RTTY; and 3820 kHz SSB, for three contacts on 80 meters. All digital modes besides CW are equivalent. If you work W9WI on 14085 kHz Baudot RTTY you cannot work him again on 14070 kHz FT8 for point credit.

Bruce,

 

Good Question, FT8 is not a mode authorized for points in the TNQP. There is no provision to send the proper exchange. Out-of-state operators send signal report and state (not ARRL section) while in-state sends signal report and the four letter abbreviation for county. If you are on a county line, you can send all the counties (sometimes 2-3). Digital modes allowed are RTTY, PSK31, FSK441, JT6M, etc. because they can accommodate these exchanges during the TNQP. Hope that clarifies the FT-8 question for you.

Juan,
It looks like you can get points using FT8.  I looked on the www.tnqp.org site but I couldn’t find any information on how to configure WSJTX for the contest.  Would you know where to find that information?  I am not sure how the four letter county abbreviation works with the FT8 exchange.
