Contest Exchange

Ray James <gm4cxm@...>
 

I'm looking forward to the contest on Sunday but consider the need for
a serial number within the exchange could be reviewed in future?

The basis for my conclusion is:

1. The scoring is based on points per Km so the qso count does not
come into the equation.

2. Some folk (including myself) may prefer the mystique of not knowing
how well/bad they are doing in relation to others!

3. Exchange of calls, signal report and locator only could possibly
encourage more non-contest participants to come on and give points
away.

4. Exchange of the above would lead to shorter contacts and more time
to find a new contact on that band or more time to qsy to another band.

Just a thought.

Hello again contesters,

Here's the final and updated activity list for Sunday's Low Band
Microwave Contest.

Many thanks to those of you who sent in the information that appears
below.

The additions to the original list are at the top.

Please note my own change of location. I will now be on from IO93EH98,
Houndkirk Moor, just 20 minutes from home :-)

Please try to come on if only for a short time. The portable stations
in particular would welcome contacts to justify the effort made to
get out on what might be a cold and rainy day!

Some of you may receive this twice if you get a direct version as well
as the one on the UKuG Microwave Reflector.

Scatterpoint delivery .. email address needed

Peter Day <microwaves@...>
 

The emailed Scatterpoint I sent to DL8HCZ at: funk-telegramm@t-online.de
has just "bounced"!

Does anyone have an up to date email address for Joachim or, perhaps if you are in DL land, could you contact him via landline for the info I need?

Many thanks, Peter,

UKuG Proceedings 2005-6

Peter Day <microwaves@...>
 

To all UKuG members:

I have just collected the Proceedings book from the printers today and will be bringing 100 copies along to the Microwave Round Table at RAL in just over a week's time. I have more but intend to sell these by post to other members who cannot get to RAL. The print run was limited so it's a matter of "first come, first served"!

The price at RAL will be £5 a copy, a little more than last year due to increased printing costs.

The book will also soon be available by post but, as I have yet to cost out the postal charges, all of which have been raised by the Post Office this month :-( , you will have to wait a few days for details.

You may, of course, email me right away to be put on the list for a reserved copy and I'll let you know the amount to send as soon as possible. I already have around a dozen people on the list.

I'm quite delighted with this year's edition and wish to thank Steve, G4KNZ, for putting it together so well. I would also like to thank all the people who contributed articles to it. Without them there would be no Round Table meetings and therefore no "Proceedings".

The contents of this year's Proceedings are listed below.

Best wishes,

Peter, G3PHO

April Scatterpoint posted

Peter Day <microwaves@...>
 

Hello UKuG members:

I've just posted Scatterpoint today. The paper versions went out by First Class post or Airmail at 1pm local time while the email version was sent between 710 and 7.20pm, a few minutes ago.

If you do not receive your email newsletter within the next 24 hours just wait awhile, say until Sunday evening, before emailing me for a repeat posting as emails with attachments can sometimes get delayed in cyberspace :-)

As the catering is outsourced and the contractor has recently changed, this year if we want the catering staff to be there and access to the canteen I will have to pay for them to come in specially, cost circa 130. That is under 2 each but we will need to find it somehow.

So, do people want lunch? Should we ask for a donation towards the cost?
