There was a very good dialog started after the 2007 event and it sort of quietly stopped. Each of us needs to go to the forum and reread those posts and start over aga...

Just received this reply from Keith N1AS and posted it here with his permission. Yes, I suppose it is time to begin thinking about it again. My first question is whether or not I want to be involved as the "1" coordinator. I was reluctant last year and this will be no different. Next quest...

Weekend Sprint Idea(s)

Bill, Back in January, Rodney N4RAY had an idea to have a sprint or get together using the SKCC SK numbers. There's about 80 of those keys around now. We could maybe work the keys or key numbers into a weekend sprint. Maybe add up the key numbers or how many SKCC keys you worked or a bonus for key t...

After a couple of weekend sprints, I think it is a good thing. I like being able to pick my operating times.

The only dislike is the 4 hour run all at one time.
Would you consider making it any 4 one hour periods?

Yea, probably in the comments would be just fine. That is what ARRL does on SKN. Then everyone who does not have a website can get a Picasa account and post their pics to it. Or send them to me and I'll put them on my account under one file name, and leave them up for a month or so. Could also trans...

If you guys want my test spreadsheet, be happy to send it to you. You can mess with the formulas and stuff to see the results I checked the weekend spring results and saw the same as you. the QRP station would have moved up a spot. The factors can be developed for all power levels, just takes a litt...

By using the dB gain in power as the determining factor for scoring, I made the following formulas in Excel: 100 watts is the figured as the normal power used, power levels under 100 watts will increase in points and power levels over 100 watts will decrease in points. ((20x10)+(+20+25))/(dB)x50 I u...

That's a neat idea.

I wonder if this could be meshed with the Weekend Sprint some month.

Already have me trying to remember what's in my junkboxes.

The W and N prefixes are also available for use so if the K3 was taken we could use one of the others.

I think we need to reserve them ASAP to insure we have them.

This also brings up another concept for the QSL cards. By arranging the cards in a verticle row it would spell CENTURYCLUB.

Interesting concept

I copied this post from the Weekend Sprint. While working the SKS Weekend sprint I came accross the OKQP or Oklahoma QSO Party. They are using 1x1 calls with the suffix that can spell Oklahoma if you work all of them. Check: http://okdxa.org/web/html/okqp.htm Neat idea. Can we work that into the spr...

Bill,

March is St. Patrick's Day.
What kind of Irish theme could we think up?

Extra points for working someone of Irish decent.

Samuel F. B. Morse was born 27 April 1791.

We could make the April weekend sprint something to do with S. F. B. Morse.

Shouldn't there be 60 count spaces plus the 2 bulls?

The outer ring is doubles.
The small mid ring is triples.
All other space from inside the outer ring to the outer bull ring is singles.

This could lead to an entire new way to contest. Have real time scoring so the first to reach 0 wins. Use Googles online spreadsheet that would be open to all and every time you make a contact enter the numbers in real time.

Now how do I get a ton80?

Detrick, OK, very simple to use. So younger ages will yield a larger score. Please tell me how you made the top 2 rows stay in position while I scroll down the sheet? Can I do that with the bottom also, so the totals always show? I am not an Excell expert. I learn every time I use it. I have modifie...
