Could only do a few minutes but always fun to do a CWT from someplace semi rare.
The E51 call is *horrible* for S&P!

I will miss the next 5 CWT's unfortunately. I will be on a research cruise to
10N, 125W out of San Diego from 16 Oct to 17 Nov then traveling to family
during Thanksgiving. I am bringing along a shortwave receiver on the cruise so
I will listen to CWT each Wednesday at sea. I will be on the R/V Roger Revelle.
We are taking a new high tech weather radar we built to sea to study tropical
convection. Should be fun but I will miss CWT and all the good ops and
friends! 73, Steve KW7Q

Despite the numbers, conditions not bad. Signals were down but readable and
steady. 80m was the best at this QTH is quite a while.

RF getting into my Winkeyer so did this one all on the paddle. Thanks for Q's,
lots of fun.

conditions on 40 meters.
NG7M   Single Op HP   8,0362017-10-11 21:03:32
40 seemed crazy noisy here in Utah... anyway... not my best night. I'll blame
it on the flare or something like that. ;)

Thanks as always for the Q's.

month or so.

Thanks for the fun night.

Whew, that was tough. No traction at all on 40, but some DX guys called in.
The band did not seem like it was open at all to the USA. Changed bands after
14 minutes!
The 80 meter vertical worked well as always. I'll be adding 10 more radials.

Tough condx tonight. Many strong signals on both 40 and 80 but many weaker
signals that were hard to pull through. Just couldn't get things going. QSY'd
from 40 to 80 at 20 past. Much better activity on 80.

Thanks to all who copied me under these condx.

KØWA   Single Op LP   3,8282017-10-11 21:05:24

Again, tons of fun.

And, for those who are even marginally interested, the 3 fingers on my right
hand (which I manglee on July 13 near the QTH of N5PHT in Texas when I was
involved in a freak accident while using a sliding compound miter saw) have now
healed to the point that I no longer have any stitches or brace of any kind.
I'm just going through hand rehab, but it surely feels good to be able to use
my paddles again and get my speed back up to somewhere near normal.

Thanks to all my wonderful CWT friends who have been so amazingly patient with
me during my recuperation and stumbling around with logging and sending with
just one finger on the keyboard. Ahhhhhhhh.

'Twas a fun day of CWT activities. I marvel at you guys who make greater than
100 Qs per hour! Wow! And, some of you are doing it with SO1R, to boot!
Double Wow!

It was terrific to hear the EU stations booming in tonight on 40m. Thundering
signals here on 40m from HA8RM, ON4UN, IT9MUO,and the ever-present Bert,

Just about the worst conditions I've experienced in a CWT. Kp=5, SSN=0.
Somehow, IT9MUO got through on 40, but Alf was really, really weak. I stayed
on 40 way too long, expecting that absorption would be very high on 80, only to
find 80 full of relatively strong signals. (I have instant band-switching
capability; I just have to learn to use it better!) Thanks to all who turned
up in spite of such dismal propagation!

VE7RAC(VE7FO)   Single Op HP   642017-10-17 19:54:52
I can hear everyone muttering, "Who the hell is VE7RAC? And how come I
never heard of him, especially since his exchange was in CWT format - Jim 1368
- and the number is in the range of CW Ops members?"

Well, to celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary there are quite a few RAC suffix
special event stations on the air until Dec 31. For details, including award
info, check out

I'm the designated VE7 CW/RTTY op for week of Oct 8 - 14 but, for family
reasons haven't been able to get on the air as much as I hoped. When I have
been on cndx were rather poor and my best rate was about 15/hr. So, tonight
I've got some time and I'm tuning across the HF bands and hearing virtually
nothing. Well, nothing other than furious CW activity with good signals over
relatively narrow segments of 40 and 80. OMG it's CW Ops with their weekly one
hour of CW mayhem. Say, should be able to make lots of Qs here, particularly
seeing as how I'm a member of CW Ops and know how CWT works. Even made 100 Qs
in one of their 1 hour segments some (better) years ago.

Just 2 issues. The Cabrillo file has to work for the RAC award adjudicators
and there's only 15 minutes left.

So, figured out the CBR file issues, got on and made 8 Qs in 7 minutes.

Thanks, guys.

You may well hear another VE7RAC next Wed.

73, Jim VE7FO
