Alright little kiddies... (Oh my... I had a teacher in high school that always called us that. It had implanted itself into my brain, biting and tearing, until one day... one long and happy day... I could use that single phrase: little kiddies. Now it's gone, for good I hope.)

Logbook of the World is up and running for AJ4IJ. If you've been wanting my confirmation via that, you now have it... provided you're in my log.

I'm so excited about it, and now I can say I have worked all the continents (minus Antarctica), since Japan is confirmed via LoTW. Congrats to Me!! Party Party!!

*doing the worked all continents dance*

-- What's that?? WAC doesn't recognize LoTW??? What a crock of 3 dits, 4 dits, 2 dits, and a dah!

Oh well, I've confirmed them in my eyes! I didn't want no stinking $13 cert anyway. hehehehe

*LoTW FTW Dance!!*

31 Flavors - Upcoming Contest

Ooooooooooh... digi-contest.

The PODXS 070 Club is hosting their 31 Flavors contest THIS weekend (Saturday, April 11th, 09). You don't have to be a club member to participate. Hours of ops are from 12:00pm - 18:00pm YOUR LOCAL time. The rolling start gives everyone a fair chance!

Try your hand at many PSK modes -- BPSK31, QPSK31, BPSK63, QPSK63, and BPSK125. According to the site... The wise contester will use as many variants as possible!

Unfortunately, you probably won't see me working this one... *boo hoo*

I worked the Valentine Sprint, had a wonderful time making TOP YL! But I have to take turns, and it's my OM's turn to work this one. So please look for AJ4JD (member #865)!

For official rules, visit here.

Good Luck!

LoTW: Soon... Soon

For those I have previously contacted... and for those I will work... You'll be happy to know that I will soon be using Logbook of the World.

I'm waiting on my postcard, then my email, and then I'll have everything set up.

Thanks for your patience with this Behind-the-Times YL.... hahaha

But... by the way... I still LOVE receiving QSL cards. :)
