Future Awards 2022

Is there a discussion about future awards? I wonder if the committee considered making the Cycle 25 award an award for next year again. I know it's already extended until March 31st but I thought perhaps make it the annual award until at least 2025. My only criticism with it is there appears a bigge...

WAB conversion for electronic loggers

A program has been uploaded to the WAB Group reflector that extracts UK QSOs from an ADIF logbook download. The app creates either an Excel file with WAB data or populates most of the WAB award trackers including the 2020 HF and VHF/overseas/Data/ activators award trackers. Also, the decade award tr...

SS50 activation tomorrow 28th January 19

Hope to activate SS50 late morning tomorrow on 3.760 +/- .
Probably after 11am.
This is a test for my mobile radio set up and antenna on the car which has been out of operation for a couple of years so fingers cross
Perhaps some other squares in West Devon. We'll have to see how things go. M0BKV :D

50th Anniversary Award - Mode

is it possible to change the mode on the 'Gold' spread sheet to mixed or SSB/CW as I make many calls on CW, particularly SOTA and feel CW isnt really a DATA mode but should be included? Damian M0BKV

Conditions

A number of people have said "the worst conditions ever" but if propagation is poor how can we tell if its getting better? For me the 2 items of data from the solar weather monitoring agents that probably can tell the most are first the A & K indexs which tell about atmospheric absorpt...

Re: Net Control

Come on lads don't get upset just cause you had a difficult day. Net control, we know, can be difficult and I wish I could be as efficient as most of the controllers. I'm one of the worst offenders at popping down the bands and working a CW SOTA station when he pops up on the cluster hoping the wab ...

Re: Logger32 Ham Radio Logbook and Trig Points

I've just received permission to use the database from 'TrigPointingUK' so will be publishing the module shortly. Probably the coming weekend due to work over the next 3 days. If not contact me to obtain my Exel file that can be uploaded additionally to the already published files for WAB squares. O...
