Hi Mike,

It came up as I started typing "Sierra..." into the field. Pleasantly
surprised to see it listed. I didn't have to pull anything down.

3830scores.com is an unofficial scoreboard that Contesters use to post their scores after a contest. It allows you to see how you did immediately because getting official score results usually takes weeks if not months.

It will break-down the scores by Class & Power, score, and even individual. It also has a feature to compare your score against others. One of my favorites is reading everyone's comments.

Speaking of Clubs, be sure to include "Sierra Foothills ARC". You can then search in your browser other members who posted. So far, Dennis, WU6X, and W6EK are the only two who have posted. So get your callsign up there too. If you are curious, WU6X beat W6EK by a differiental of 3 to 1 :-(

Again, the url is https://www.3830scores.com/. If you have any questions on how to post, let me or Dennis know and we can walk you through it.

Hope to see your callsign up there soon!

ARRL - Quick Response

Michael - N6MRP
 

On Sunday, I submitted my Field Day contacts to ARRL in haste, only to find I input my call sign wrong. I sent a note to ARRL about the matter. By 9am today I got a response from Paul Bourque, N1SFE, ARRL Contest Program Manager - he had corrected my call sign in the ARRL database. I appreciate the quick response from ARRL!

Hi Orion,

My thanks to you as well for organizing this year's event.  Well done!

A question on submitting to the ARRL...  For the "message to the section manager or section EC" bonus points, they are requesting " Properly serviced copies of each message" be submitted with the report. 

I sent a Radiogram-formatted message to the EC (Greg KG6SJT) via Winlink, and he acknowledged getting it.  I also forwarded what I had sent (from the sent tray) to 3 others.  So I think that's 100 + 30 points.

Of the above, what exactly is a " Properly serviced copy"?

Good Morning Everyone!

First, Mark thank you for the kind words!  I am so glad you had a great time for Field Day this year!  I hope you made at least five contacts!  You would qualify for the Rookie award.  

Second, I will host another Field Day Q&A this Thursday, July 2, on GoToMeeting.com after the W6EK 2m Net with a focus on submitting to ARRL.  I will save my submission until then so you can see how it is done.

If you have specific questions before then, post them to this groups.io thread, i.e. hit the Reply link below, and I will be sure to be prepared.

Hello Mark,

Every point counts toward the aggregated club score. :)

On N3FJP Cabrillo submission page, you will note that it states that the Cabrillo form is no longer directly submitted for the ARRL Field Day from N3FJP and to instead to generate the "Dupe" file from the tab at the bottom of the page.  Press the Dupe button and save the Dupe file to your computer. Open the summary page report to see your breakdown by band and mode if you need a further breakdown of your contacts by band and mode.

Open the ARRL Field Day submission link:
then click on the Go To Data Entry button. 

Fill out the online form, claim your bonus points (attach documentation if requested).

Enter the QSOs and Power by Band and Mode. and attach the Dupe file (or a Cabrillo) 

Verify that you complied to the rules, then submit the entry.

If you need any assistance with the submission, give me a call.

Best Regards!

First thanks for the help and pointers in getting started in my first field day. It forced me to learn a lot about my radio and setting up an adhoc antennas for HF. I built a modified Fan Dipole that gave me 40m, 20m and 15m access to a limited degree. I could not generate enough signal to punch through the noise. But I learned that with a pile of speaker wire, some PVC and a lot of patience you can make an HF antenna which was a lot of fun.

 

As to the log,

 

I tried submitting through N3FJP, file->write Cabrillo so I clicked that and it says they don’t want that so I don’t know. I’m just skipping the whole ARRL submittal thing, sorry, just too confusing for a first timer.

 

The log (see attached) generated by Cabrillo(?) does not seem to have what you needed.  I grabbed a list from N3FJP that seems to have what you needed, pasted it into Excel and attached it here. Hopefully that is okay.

Greg,
I was going to work in some 2m ssb contacts but the thought of a manual entry made me think twice. As it is, I generated a “dupe sheet” from the n3fjp results and attached it to the entry form. But I can’t submit! Don’t know why. Anyone have suggestions?

ARRL ought to give a trophy if you work all sections.

Now the hard part...

Greg D
 

Hi folks,

So with Field Day 2020 in the rear view mirror, the hard part starts...
preparing the logs.

I have a combination of WSJT-X contacts (33) on the computer, along with
paper logs (23 + 1 satellite *). WSJT-X appears to be able to export
the logs in Cabrillo format, but how can I add my paper logs to them?
The common format might be a spreadsheet, a combination of the wsjtx.log
file copied into a spreadsheet, with the paper entries added by hand,
then exported to a text file. There's also the bonus points, for
Winlink messages, ARRL Bulletin, etc.

Does that work for both the club and ARRL?

Thanks,

Greg KO6TH

* Yes, one satellite, K5TA in NM! Actually there were two, but I
can't find the other station's call (ended in either RR or MM) among my
scribbles, and I didn't remember their exchange. Note to self: Get an
audio recording of everything. I have the equipment; use it!

It is not intuitive if you normally use the ACL by N3FJP.  The N3FJP Field Day contest log is a little different.  But works GREAT!
Here is the how-to that i found on the interwebs.

Re: ZOOM Room #fieldday

Gary and I will keep trading notes. We're both testing by setting up a couple of PCs using different Zoom logins to test the Interface between Hosts and participants. 
It's also simple to set up a separate test meeting in advance of the main show and have a number of folks log in to "kick the cyber-tires."

We were trading notes about using "breakout rooms" to enable logging assistants where someone could give the station operator a break and do his or her logging for them remotely.

Hi folks,

If you're interested in trying your hand at a satellite contact, or even
just listening in to what will surely be a bit of a zoo in the sky,
attached is some satellite pass information that might help you. The
two pass charts (Saturday 11am to 11pm, and 11pm to 11am Sunday) show
the various satellites that I have in my database (which needs some
serious cleanup!) on the vertical axis, and time going across the
horizontal. Circled passes might be the better ones, based only on how
high they are. No promises.

Also is an old copy of the AMSAT Satellite Frequency Chart, as a quick
reference. You will also need an idea of where the satellite will be.
Amsat.org has tools under https://www.amsat.org/ mouse over the
Satellite Info tab.

Enjoy!
