Flipping 'eck Alan mate.....remind me not to try and be too helpful in future will you.

Spent nearly 40 mins scanning the bands to work some FT4/8 so I could get a log entry to check out QRZ!
(Weekends can be silly and most don't like being worked a second time?!?)

Finally got one, (Germany - new grid), on 17m so I could do a log upload..... All fine here. QRZ.COM updating log. 1f44d

Sorted it out now.
Friday i decided to turn the power down as low as it would go.
In my ft4/8 program JTDX i added /QRP on my callsign.
Just taken it off as a test and bingo back to normal.
Only had 100+ contacts lol but lost for ever now.

Ahh, that'll do it. Wink

I think you need to add a call with QRZ for it to recognise a now 'new' call and sure there must've been loads affected with their 'Q' special event Jubilee call signs.

Never mind Alan, lesson learned.


I upload all mine via the import function but that has prodded/reminded me I need to sort out some logging software for SSB contacts.

I don't even run JT Alert! 
(Should do, what with a new laptop and all.......only just got used to Windows again after my years on Linux!)

Just edit the ADIF file and take the /QRP out, then re-upload.

Nice straight forward suggestion from Jeff there for you Alan. 

Just make sure you back up your ADIF first!!!


Wanted to ask if you were adding /QRP not only for the low power working but to 'reinvigorate' your FT4/8 contacts?
(Only because I've spotted quite a few /QRP calls recently.)

Jeff
Thanks for the suggestion i did do that but didn't think to report back i should have done.
Victor
The qrp came about from my m8 who does it as well.
We both turned our power down as low as it would go to see where we got.
Me at 65ft ASL and him at 1000ft ASL.
Then i like you spotted a station with qrp at the end so i thought i would give it ago lol.
And the ret is history but i did get more contacts than him lol.

I guessed you'd have already thought about editing your ADIF Alan but still a great suggestion by Jeff nonetheless for those that may not know.

Well done setting challenges to keep up the interest especially low end QRP. I've been impressed with what you can do with 10 Watts and often turn down to five to see if it makes much of a difference.

Been having fun myself watching the waterfall after setting the colours to 'banana' and seeing propagation fade in and out. If you time it just right you can catch a station as their signal comes up with just enough time to bag a contact. If that fails I'll often send them the report cycle again during the fades to be able to compete the QSO cycle. That seems to help with those that stick to the 'three attempts' scenario as well, when they drop back to CQ you simply send the report again as another attempt. (Not all appreciate it though!)

Still not bagging Stateside here though despite PSKReporter showing reception reports from my signals over there(?)

Perhaps I need to upgrade my lawnmower lead? 

Nah, need a volunteer, the missus doesn't want to go back up in that loft and I still haven't explored everything it can do yet. Wink


Oh, talking FT modes and QRZ - what is it with ops transmitting grid squares that don't match their QRZ? Must have quite a few 'fails' from mismatch logs now. Then there's the Windows notification sounds coming through transmissions, the splatter from overdriven transmissions, the persistent CQ's without response from call backs, the pirate calls.........All part of the 'fun' I suppose. (We were after all 'new' to it once.)

Considering it's all supposed to be a 'sterile' mode of impersonal computer transmission I've been getting some nice mailings as well as comments in the log responses. Great to get a QSL card, a thank you, (got one for working a station multi-band), or even comments about working FT757 to FT757 and one op firing up FT8 on an old FT101zd. 

Not as 'impersonal' as it all first seems.  QRZ.COM updating log. 1f44d

The grid thing i don't know but when i first started QRZ had mine wrong no idea why and i don't remember putting the wrong one in but then you know what my memory is like lol.
Mailings just had one this morning from a station in Switzerland.
He was asking about the cobwebb.
He had worked out it was from Poland like his and he wanted to know how mine worked local.
He said mine was at 4m while his was at 14.5m and thinking as they where tested and setup at 4m was his to high.
I told him mine was no good local and the height of 4m was just where it landed.
Stateside i find if the cobwebb is not turned with the box pointing at the telegraph pole i don't get them the same but it is not supposed to be directional (i know the pole don't move but the cobwebb does turn lol tie wrapped to the swing ).
