Over the past week I’ve been notified that I have been mentioned in both CQ and QST magazines. In the March 2011 issue of CQ I’m mentioned in the article on the 2010 CQ WPX CW contest because I ended up in 1st place US in the Rookie category. The article also indicates I apparently receive a plaque for it which is sponsored by K6DBG (Chris) so thanks for that! I’m no longer eligible to claim Rookie status so I was lucky to sneak this in before I get lumped in the middle of the pack with everyone else.
In the April 2011 issue of QST Magazine is an article by WB8IMY (Steve) on the digital mode JT65. In the article Steve mentions my maidenhead grid square site at http://www.levinecentral.com/ham/grid_square.php as the grid square is important for use with the software that is used. Thanks for the mention Steve!
Looks like I might be able to sneak in some radio time in the BARTG RTTY contest but just on Friday evening for a short time. The rest of the weekend and contest I’ll be unavailable and with one of my daughters. I just need to remember to mentally adjust GMT to Daylight Savings Time which kicked in last weekend. The BARTG starts at 0200z which last week would have been 9pm EST and now is 10pm EDT.
