ARRL Contest Update

Upcoming Contests – Things to Do

Three words: ARRL Phone Sweepstakes! With recent conditions, 20 meters may not need to be the slugfest it sometimes can be in this domestic contest, as stations will be able to spread out. Remember, you can work a station once per contest.

For a bit of a warm-up, give the JIDX SSB phone contest a try — the exchange is your RST and CQ zone. The only contacts that count for points are between JA and non-JA operators. If you’re going to try for the highest points-per-Q band, make sure you’re aware of the JA 160-meter phone bands.

News, Press Releases, and Special Interest

Users of the VE7CC packet cluster noticed that on Saturday they were temporarily being connected to AE5E’s packet cluster instead. British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest experienced a wind storm that disrupted commercial power over a wide swath, and VE7CC.CC was one of the casualties. The VE7CC server’s DNS fails over to AE5E’s node. Ron Stordahl, AE5E, noted in an email on Saturday that at one point, over 1,700 users were connected to his node. After 19 hours, VE7CC’s power returned. New connections are once again being served by VE7CC.CC.

Bruce Draper, AA5B, recently passed away. Bruce was a past editor of NCJ, as well as a past editor of the Convention and Hamfest Calendar in QST. Ray Sokola, K9RS, noted, “Over the years, Bruce distinguished himself as both a single operator and multi-op contester. I was privileged to be part of many multi-op teams with him and appreciate those memories. He was a great teammate, and I will miss him.”

QO-100 is an amateur satellite in geosynchronous orbit over Africa. Its footprint doesn’t include North America…or does it? A recent AMSAT-UK article speculates that it may be possible for a station on Signal Hill in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, to successfully communicate through it. To spur attempts, AMSAT-UK and the British Amateur Television Club (BATC) are sponsoring the QO-100 Challenge for North America, with trophies awarded to the first station that:

  • Completes the first two-way contact via the QO-100 narrow-band transponder when operating from Newfoundland
  • Completes more than 100 two-way contacts via the QO-100 narrow-band transponder when operating from Newfoundland
  • Completes the first two-way DATV contacts via the QO-100 wide-band transponder when operating from Newfoundland

Subsequent operations from Newfoundland will also be eligible to apply for a special certificate, according to the article.

Rob Fanfant, N7QT, currently on a DXpedition in Palau (T8), points out: “When using FT8 to call a station in Fox/Hound mode, make sure you’re picking a transmit tone that’s at least 1100 Hz. In Fox/Hound mode, the Fox will only respond to stations above 1000 Hz. If you call too close to 1000 Hz using radios that are slightly off, the Fox may not hear you.”

The third annual TRX Tower Rodeo Challenge on December 2 – 3, 2022, features seven two-person crews assembled from different sectors of the professional tower-climbing industry, including communications workers, utility workers, and first responders. The competition includes challenges that go beyond mere towers. This year there will be situations involving rooftops and building edges, mobile elevated platforms, and sponsor-promised surprises. Spectator interest has grown with each event, so this year the competition will be live-streamed on YouTube. Last year’s competition is also available for viewing.

Sights and Sounds

K3LR may have done it again! This team achieved the #1 multi-multi USA claimed score in the 2022 CQWW Phone Contest. This year marks the “diamond” 30th anniversary of multi-multi operations from K3LR.

Michael Walker, VA3MW, opining on 10 meters when it’s open: “If you haven’t ever been through a solar cycle peak, you are going to be in for a nice ride. You can work the world on 10 W and a dipole. Even today signals are over S9. These are not the days for FT8. These are the days to drag out the microphone. You can even cut down an old CB beam and work anyone QRP. Get on and make some noise!”

Results and Records

The raw results for the recent CQ WW SSB Contest are now online. As with any list of raw scores, these will be adjusted as necessary by the contest sponsor. You can see some of the pre- and post-contest tweets by searching for #cqwwssb, #cqww, and #cqcontest on Twitter.

Operating Tip

Copy and Log What is Sent

This topic is a perennial: Modern logging programs do a great job of providing copying aids in the form of check databases and call history files. When a call sign is typed into an entry window, a look up against a side database is performed by the logging program, and information about that call sign is displayed, which can include location, exchange, and so on. Some logging programs will even pre-fill the appropriate form fields in the entry window before the other station has sent it. It’s vital to log what is sent by the other station, not the pre-filled information. It’s OK to ask the other station for a repeat, but always remember that the sent information has precedence over the pre-fill.

Technical Topics and Discussion

Practice! Practice! Practice! That’s how you can improve your CW skills, and using MorseRunner as a training aid is one way to do it between contests. If you like to tinker, MorseRunner source code is available with MorseRunner Community Edition, and the project is seeking quality contributions pertaining to improving the end-user experience, bug fixes, support for alternate operating systems, and integration with popular logging programs.

Prosistel Rotator users may find Eugenio Morales’, EA7HG, Visual Rotor project of interest. According to the website, it uses an Arduino Mega 2560, a 4.3-inch touchscreen, and various board-level modules to enable control of the rotator via the screen, serial/USB, or even via Android device.

Older radios can be a lot of fun to restore, align, and get on the air. Using them for DXing or contesting can sometimes be difficult, however, because modern features like CAT control, frequency memories, or even second VFOs can be lacking. The UDVBM-1 project, a Universal Digital VFO and BFO Motherboard, was born of the creator’s need “to replace the drifty VFO in one of my rigs with a digital solution.” Combine the ever-popular Si5351 PLL with an Arduino Nano, Arduino Pro Mini, or Seeed Studio’s XIAO MCU (ESP32-based). Appropriate source code is available in a GitHub repository.

Tree rings may contain historical records of past cosmic events. Research done by the University of Queensland indicates that “huge” radiation storms affecting Earth may have left evidence in the form of carbon-14, which is filtered through trees, among other things. Trees from thousands of years ago are available for study, and they seem to show that Miyake events “have occurred approximately once every thousand years.” The researchers also find that these events are not correlated with sunspot activity.

John Fallows, VE6EY, has blogged about a NanoVNA Current Choke Test Rig project by Mark Smith, N6MTS, to enable quick “design and test of all sorts of common-mode chokes in your home lab.” The accompanying video shows how to test common-mode chokes using this or similar setups.

Getting Ready for Next Year

After any major contest, there’s usually a flurry of posts on 3830scores.com about the contest and the support groups for various radios or logging software packages. Whether it’s participants still excited about a great contest experience, those that worked through an issue, or those that still need to work through some issues, there can be a lot of information to go through. It’s great material to read for the next contest.

Here’s an example: On the N1MM Logger+ Groups.io web page, there has been a discussion about how to make CW Sweepstakes messages have slightly longer spacing for improved readability for the long Sweepstakes change. Definitely one to remember for next year. There’s also a discussion about how to properly set up N1MM Logger+ for Sweepstakes, pointing to the section in the documentationN1MM Logger+ changes frequently, so it follows that this information occasionally changes, too. Always good to read it before the contest.

And here’s the best part: you can go back to last year’s post-contest discussions to get ready for this week’s contests!

 

That’s all for this time. Remember to send contesting-related stories, book reviews, tips, techniques, press releases, errata, schematics, club information, pictures, stories, blog links, and predictions to contest-update@arrl.org.
