Re:CQ WW WPX RTTY 2008 - 2008/02/03 20:59 Salut à tous.
Je viens de lire les "WPX Strategies" de Don/AA5AU lors
du WPX 2005, quelques bonnes idées.

http://www.rttycontesting.com/contestnotes/2005_wpxrtty.htm

Pour ma part voici ma sédule.

0000  -  0200 40m
0200  -  0500 80m

1400  -  2200 20m
2200  -  0200 40m
0200  -  0400 80m

1400  -  2000 20m
2000  -  2200 40m
2200  -  2359 80m

Il  y aura des QSX pour 15m entre 1400 - 2000
Evidemment tout peut varié selon la propagation. Il y aura
aussi des pauses d'inserrées ha ha!

Faut pas oublier qu'il a des points supplémentaires pour
les QSO en 40 et 80m et les autres continents.

Je serai en SO1R HP - J'espère avoir la TH-2 sur le sud installée.

Quelqu'un a-t-il des suggestions

73, claude VE2FK

Re:CQ WW WPX RTTY 2008 - 2008/02/03 22:37 Ben oui Claude, garde c'est facile , le sud est normalement à 180 degrès alors, tu prends une boussole....hihi
Ok sérieusement , bonnes nouvelles Victor if you're there it will add to the fun!! Parlé à Bob AXO qui me confirme il sera là!! Wow on va être un bon groupe!

Don AA5AU a plein de bon conseils et c'est plaisant de le lire, il est toujours très 'fired up'.  L'année passé on a fini côte à côte et j'aspère pouvoir le battre cette année.

Pour le WPX malgré notre position géographique assez désavantageuse (??!!) ces jours-ci, on a quand même un avantage sur nos voisins amirequins. En effet même si la propagation avec l'EU devait être mauvaise ou de courte durée, le nombre de stations US est généralement très grand dans ce contest ce qui nous donne une grosse cible pour des 4 pointers en 40 et 80 alors qu'eux en contactant les stations US n'ont que 2 points. Il y a aussi bon nombre de prefixes seulement aux USA. L'importance des low bands est là et il faut bien calculer quand abandonner 20M pour aller jouer sur 40 et 80. Beaucoup de stratégie.
De mon côté je ferai mon possible en espérant que le qrm habituel me laisse tranquille.
Bonne préparation à tous.

Re:CQ WW WPX RTTY 2008 - 2008/02/04 13:00 J'avais une question par rapport aux 30 heures allouées. Mais, en relisant le post de Claude, ca correspondait pas mal aux heures que je pensais faire. En gros, il faut 18 heures off, je prévilégie de beaucoup des bons Zzzz(7h) et une heure pour diner, une heure pour souper. Ca fait 9 heurse X2 = les 18 heures off obligatoires.

Re:CQ WW WPX RTTY 2008 - 2008/02/04 15:49 From Radio-Sport site:

RTTY Ops Eye More Broken Records in 2008 CQ WPX RTTY

By Jamie Dupree NS3T, radio-sport.net  



After a series of records were broken in last year's CQ WPX RTTY contest, the logical question to ask is what will be shattered in 2008, as the growth in RTTY contests continues.

The defending champ is Ed Muns W0YK, who last year piloted P49X in Aruba and set a new Single Op High Power record to 9,981,738 points - 2.7 million more than the old record.

"Year by year, contest by contest, participation continues to grow at an amazing rate in RTTY contests," Muns told radio-sport.net. The three major RTTY contests (CQWW, CQWW WPX and RTTY RU) have all had record number of logs."

Last year in fact saw a 27% jump in the number of submitted logs for WPX RTTY.

"RTTY is very accessible without having to learn the code and is often more productive than phone in making QSOs from modest stations," Muns added.

More than ready for the WPX weekend is Tyler Stewart K3MM, who was the top scorer in both the US and North America in 2007.

"There are a few special considerations for RTTY WPX," Stewart told radio-sport.net. "Double points for 40 and 80 meter contacts, the 30 out of 48 hour time limit, and allowed spotting assistance for single-ops."

"With double points available on 40 and 80, you have to try and maximize your low band effort," said Stewart. "I will tolerate up to about a 40 percent slower rate on low bands versus high everything else being equal."

One op trying to chase down Stewart will be Dennis Egan W1UE, 6th in the world in 2007.

Operating this year from the station of K1TTT, Egan says his goals include "work Europe whenever possible" and "maximize rate."

"Europe has the easiest, faster 3 and 6 point QSO's available from my location," said Egan. As for maximizing his rate, "I can expect that every 3 QSO's will produce a multiplier. More Q's, more mults."

Like K3MM, Egan says one must take advantage of double points on the low bands as well.

"I've tailored my off times to expected lowest QSO rates and no propagation to Europe," said Egan.

One important thing to remember for single operators in WPX RTTY is that there is a 30-hour time limit. All off times must also be at least 60 minutes in length.

"With 18 hours of off-time required, it's very difficult to pick your off-periods," says Stewart K3MM.

"As an SO2R operator, you have to consider overall rate on both radios, so if there aren't 2 active bands during some period of time, that's when I'll be looking to take an off-time."

CQ Magazine reported that about 60 operators in 2007 exceeded 30 hours of operation. If that happens, then all contacts after the 30 hour limit will be deleted from your score.

Along with K3MM and W1UE, the call K4GMH of Mike Sims can be expected a lot in the pileups this weekend.

Sims finished 5th in the world last year, and along with W1UE, was one of only two operators to claim more than 2,000 contacts in the 2008 ARRL RTTY Roundup.

"The number of stations participating in RTTY contesting continues to grow," said Sims.

Sims says many of the "new calls are those of CW and SSB contesters trying out RTTY contesting and new amateurs exploring RTTY as a HF operation option."

When asked about RTTY contest growth, the theme from operators all over the world has been the advances in computer software that have allowed many more to get on the air.

"Technology has made it easy to get on RTTY," said Sims. Computers, sound cards and excellent free RTTY software are major factors in the increase in RTTY activity."

As for propagation this weekend, if it's anything like recent weeks, the high bands won't be as active.

"With relatively low SFI numbers, there is probably no good reason to even go to 10 meters," says Stewart K3MM, adding that "productive time on 15 will be limited."

"However, you will want to keep an eye on spots for single-banders, new mults, or the indication of a band-opening."

Re:CQ WW WPX RTTY 2008 - 2008/02/07 22:37 Great news Alexei!!
GL all. I know we are not expecting gud conditions with high numbers for A and K indexes but then again, what else is new!!

NP. We can make WPX score and mult by using just NA prefixes))))

Re:CQ WW WPX RTTY 2008 - 2008/02/08 16:30 Et maintenant, que la propagation soit avec les VE2, et que nous soyons évités par les bugs informatiques!

And now, may propagation be with the VE2's, and have no computer bugs!

Bonne fin de semaine, have a nice weekend!

Re:CQ WW WPX RTTY 2008 - 2008/02/08 19:49 Je l'avais vu venir. Plein de problèmes avec mon ordi, la Rascal qui déclenche le PTT 10 secondes après que je le demande, la microkeyer quant à  elle refuse de libérer le PTT à la fin de la TX, bref, je suis très décu mais j'abandonne.

J'ai pas eu de probleme cette semaine pourtant.

Que ce soit clair: le RTTY SO2R, ca prend un ordi puissant sinon vous allez blasphêmer.

Tant qu'à passer pour un lid, je vais passer du temps en famille.

Bonne chance à vous autres!

Re:CQ WW WPX RTTY 2008 - 2008/02/09 22:11 C'est currieux, moi aussi j'ai des problèmes avec le PTT qui reste
en ondes à la fin d'une transmission, il me faut à chaque fois peser
sur le TRANSMIT du Icom pour canceller... suis en train de devenir
fou. Là je ne sais pas si c'est à cause du Laptop, nouvelle version
de N1MM, du RF etc.  Je vais faire une recherche apres le concours.

J'irai me chercher un P4, 3.0G à Québec en mars.

On s'en reparle, 73

Re:CQ WW WPX RTTY 2008 - 2008/02/10 08:43 Ton microkeyer Claude?

Le même problême que moi alors.  J'étais un véritable QRM ambulant.

Je soupconne un manque de ressources de l'ordi. Faut dire qu'il a 10 ans. Aussi, win98 est définitivement révolu.

Je serai prêt pour le BARTG, je mettrai en service mon laptop. S'agit de savoir comment faire du SO2R avec une seule carte de son. Ca peut etre t'intéresser aussi Claude.

Re:CQ WW WPX RTTY 2008 - 2008/02/10 09:50 Non ici j'ai pas le microKeyer en service, j'utilise le PTC-II  TNC DSP.
C'est autre chose...

REndu à 681 QSO à 0949   mais je prends ça relax...
