Not a bad haul this morning. It has made a difference starting a half hour earlier. At exactly 1601Z the QRN came on like gangbusters. I think we had all hands in except for Bob/W2EUU and Dave picked him up.
TKS for the QSP’s Dave/Raj. Note, and all should shun him, Ralphie reported when asked what he did for Linda for their 49th anniversary he took her to Mc D. Shame be upon him. (See Ed. Footnote)
All stations prior to the QRN we decent except for NMA/NMR.

Condx were fair. Makes a big dif starting at 0830 my time. At 0900, or just a few minutes past that, the QRN started. We had some QRM from SKCC’ers but I was able to filter it out. Only prob with that is that once I throw on the 500hz filter the filter attenuation drops a weak signal even more. Some highlights...the Admiral is getting his teeth cleaned but I’m doubting that will improve his hand (Paw) sending. Tom/K4NMR had pneumonia but is doing better. I recall one of our guys being on vacation in HI and catching pneumonia. That didn’t end well. Lots of reports of severe wx on it’s way. Finally heard from Ralph and he and ms. Linda are celebrating their 49th anniversary. time flies when you have sneakers.
Jack and his bow are decreasing the bear population in Canada.

13 CG CW operators gathered 137 contacts during our CG Special Event. All QSL cards from those operators have been sent to the contacts.
The voice/digital folks had 359 voice and 208 digital contacts during the same period.
The hours of operation were from 1400Z 4 August until 0400Z 5 August.
Conditions were very trying. The majority of the CW contacts were on 14052 kHz.
Hopefully next year the conditions will be better.
A congratulation to all those that participated for the contacts and endurance…

WOW was I surprised to be first in the cluster to get on. I was using my new ALS-500M electron burner at 300W this morning and it worked. Don't know my signal strength but I could hear my signal via internet Remote Ham Radio station in W1 country. Happy with that.
Still under a cone of silence receiving anything live so the RHR is my receiver when I'm at home.
Thanks for NCS Dave and signal reports are welcome.
I could barely hear Dave up in Ok. He was coming in pretty good at QSA1 and the heavens opened causing heavy rain QRM as I sent my report. I could tell he responded but could not copy at all so had to QRT. Usually Rajah is Q5 but not today.
Type your paragraph here.

Good Larry. Did you evacuate during the storm or stay and ride it out.
Ralph did you hear the chief. He was doing the thong trick way back when he was aboard tankers. Too much sun. Here in the NW it’s rust that gets to ya. Our suntan lotion is WD-40.
OK on the new meds Smokey. Keep a close eye on that. Also Fred. It wouldn’t take a genius to realize we are all geezers.
I got my typewriters fixed and ready for next week. Be gentle.
Sorry I missed the net ….. all is okay at my QTH I suffered NO storm damage and my antennas and tower are intact …. I never lost power the whole time (amazing because I normally lose power if a seagull craps) …. see everyone next week
DE K4NMR 73's
After reading your last email Ralph I'm amazed that you are still functioning. I was kind of curious how a LTCOL can be selected for Gen and skip over COL. It's the same as a CDR going to Rear Admiral. If I hadn't done the duty dit dah for some many years, years and more years I would get frustrated at times. With youse guys in attendance it's always a pleasure even when things don't go according to plan.
I'll be curious Ralph how the shots go and what the MRI shows. I'm scheduled for an app't at U/W on 28 Sep and I think it'll be shortly after that that they take the knife to me. Plus they just seem to keep cutting on Raj. Is that a cancer things Raj or are you just trying to lose weight the hard way.
We didn't hear from Larry/KR4X this week. Hope he's OK. Also Tom/K4NMR but it might just be conditions...

Fred here. Smokey, I wasn't so luck. Got a stent on Tuesday of this week. They let me loose about 8pm, but was readmitted at midnight with breathing problems. Finally released about 4pm on Wednesday. Mary Ann and I are on Amtrak heading to South Portland for the reunion.

Another trial. I compounded my own problem. The last 4 or so checkins I copied in upper case on a conventional typewriter. lots of %&^$##&* and stuff like that. Being a well trained duty dit dah I never looked down at what I was copying so I was a little surprised when I looked over the copy. I had to interpret a bunch. Weak sigs again of course. And again the QRN started just after 9am. Thanks Raj for the QSP’s.

Smokey I could tell you were in there on 7mcs. Heard some V’s.

Not great comms but better than the usual 0900 start time. The fluctuation in sig strength is amazing. You can be QSA5 in one second and QSA2 in the next. Dave is back so I get the complete wx report oh joy.
That wx report teaches one thing...you can’t anticipate. Damn I’m sorry I asked Dick to put the Admiral on. I take it back Dick. I couldn’t get into his rhythm at all until way down his commentary. Maybe if he goes to remedial code sending and I go to remedial code copying we might be able to get together.

Difficult net made easy by Raj doing a lot of QSP’ing. Thanks Raj as I said ‘that’s why you’re the chief’. Strange condx. I didn’t hear K7DCG at all. K7SXN was barely noticeable in there, K4NMA wasn’t really that bad. I lost him at the end of his epistle but otherwise he had a decent signal. Ram/K4WIP just keeps coming through same with KR4X. Also didn’t hear Ted/W6VXP. I think I got about half of the checkins and Raj got the other half. O’yeah ralph/W8BHJ was very weak. Onward and upward. I won’t be here next week but there will be someone up there to take the punishment.

Another somewhat tough go. Thanks to Dave and Raj for the QSP’s and timely info. Smokey I had you at QSA4 but you might have been having some keying probs. Did you run into Smokey the bear yet. He might take umbrage to your name there. Dennis I heard you on 14 at about 55 past at the same time as Smokey. I asked you to QRY2 but apparently you didn’t hear me. I also heard you on 7mc but again I don’t think you heard me. Ralph called before the net, ZTA5, and said he had to take ms Linda to a dr. app’t and would miss the net.

May 25, 2017.
Have you ever had one of those days when things just go to s---. This net was one of those times. I won’t be here next week. I’m being recalled to RM school for remedial instruction.
Not only were signals terrible but right in the middle of the net I some how hit the caps function on the IBM selectric. The type ball I use goes nuts when it is in ‘upper case’. You can’t read a good many of the characters. So I’ll do my best in deciphering.
KE7A had the only good signal of the bunch. I was surprised that Dick/K6KSG was so weak. He usually booms in. Raj was QSA1 but mostly steady. Dave/K4NMA started out QSA2-3 and then went right into the mud. Ralph was QSA1/nil when he called in but was QSA3 when he sent his info. Ted/W6VXP came up late. Earlier he was nil but later QSA3. Dennis/K7DCG was nil on 14 but OK on 7mcs.
OK enough excuses here’s my best attempt at deciphering .. O’yeah and right in the middle of this cluster you know what the type ball in the IBM would not seat. So I have another typewriter and I was changing that out during the net. Chief can I have a couple days leave…

ZUT Net comments via cyber-signals ----
We will be on the road to Estes Park next Thursday. I'll tune in NET on the truck IC7000 but doubt I'll QSO net. June 29th we will be settled into Yellowstone in the middle of our 5 day stay, so MAYBE get to NET then.
Not even 1800PDT and already dark as 2200. . . . clouds are uber thick over here. Time to walk off dinner.

The end of the story !
When Fred ended my turn I shut down and we headed ford Bob Evans
(10 min from the house here in Lakewood) The lunch crowd had not fully
taken over. Ms Linda chicken fried stake etc...me ! Fish (cod) FF, kolslaw
Bannnnana bread - nice meal, good waitress $8 tip and doggie bags
What transceiver were you using ?? your keying sound was different today,
you were S4 very nice up here on the North Coast.
WX sunny clear temp 88 deg
hope all is well
NMJ CGRADSTA Ketchikan - nice duty for a single guy like me, good fishing with
the rec boat assigned to NMJ - Bert Howell RMINC had to come and get me out of
jail downtown, he and my uncle Jack Breschini W4 Bosn were friends, so Bert gave me
a good ass chewing and said this better NOT happen again !! I got lucky and never got
caught again. the Mail (not male) lady and I became s thing over time she bought me
a brand new VW bug, shortly after that I got orders for NMH, she called the OIC
Mr Vokle I ended up paying her back $2,020 full price for the vw. I drove it back to NMH
At NMJ Spiker, Bischof, a GREAT bunch of RM's -Obs/Amver periods were wars with
NOY, (kodiak) NMW------
I went to NMJ on occasion when doing Background checks on RMs when I was D17(oil) CGI. SE Alaska had some of the most remote and isolated sections of the country. Travel was always and adventure with float planes, ferry boats, HH3, 95 footers and 727s float/amphib planes and Twin Otter air craft. Trips to Matlakatla were an adventure before the Air Sta moved to Sitka. Occasional flights at 25 FEET AGL to stay VFR under the fog/clouds...
