In the non-repeater contests, do you change the 4 digits for each new contact, or keep them the same? I ask because I'll make up a sample to take with me, observing the rules about non consecutive numbers and not repeating a number in the group, of course, if I need to change it for each contact as, if doing it 'on the fly' I might forget the no repeated digits and no consecutive numbers rule in the heat of the moment.
I guess that, reading the rules for the Repeater contest, you need to use a different set of 4 digits per repeater, so if you use two repeaters you will have two groups of numbers and possibly a different resultant number from the addition process. So, where do you put the second set of numbers please, as the log sheet I downloaded only has one box to put them in?
Thanks for any help, advice or clarification on this.
I find the board a bit quiet as well, I'm used to the very active 4 Metre site!
Nice to have you call in and see 60% of the NE England population tonight on GB3KM webstream!!
Maybe see you on the next contest?
Rob (M0DTS) myself and possibly one or two more are looking to be/P on 8 July from North York moors.
It was a 1st to hear myself coming back via the internet on the 144.750MHz FM audio feedback on GB3KM tonight.
However, I don't think I'll be able to get a TV picture through KM under 'normal' conditions, so I'm planning to make some portable 23 and 13cm antennas and go /P somewhere a bit north of here during the Summer.
I now need to find a small, portable, 12 Volt powered TV to take with me.
I have often picked up small 12V B/W portables (5") from my local market, don't pay more than about a fiver! Make sure the audio/video sockets are on the rear.
Rob (M0DTS) has just ordered a colour 12V TV from ebay, brand new "Crown-CTF101-10-12V-Portable-Television-Caravan-Boat" for £35 +£10. A bargain.
Yes, I see them on the 'buy now' option.EddieG0EHV wrote:Rob (M0DTS) has just ordered a colour 12V TV from ebay, brand new "Crown-CTF101-10-12V-Portable-Television-Caravan-Boat" for £35 +£10. A bargain.
Maybe I'll go that route then.
