OPERATING CREED & STRAGETY


Operated by Max VE6RST

Everyone on the operating team contributes to making the team effort a success. Each team operator is "charged" with a specific task to make it all happen. Our operating creed is very much tied to a winning attitude and effort.
• WriteLog the logging software, running in a CT compatible mode
• Operating stamina, the competitive edge of staying in the chair when the band conditions get rough or slow
Through the course of the contest (it is a 48 hour event) all the operators "cycle thru" the various team tasks. That being run station op, multi stn op, spot stn op and logging support. It is imperative that the run and multi stations be staffed and focused for the entire 48-hour event. I cannot over emphasis this number one operating strategy! Also keeping in mind that run, multi and spot positions must "work" together to maximize the score.
We use the packetcluster to its full extend, all spots are chased and re-confirmed. Yet, never losing sight of constantly searching the bands for multipliers for the full 48-hour period. We have a mild understanding of the propagation for our location that occurs during this 48-hour contest and have developed an operating plan to this end. We hope to "fine tune" the plan for the loss of 10M prop anticipated for this fall and ensure that 40M is mined for every Q and multi.
The first 24 hours of operating will set the stage of a winning effort. The second night will separate the “men from boys” and the last daytime operating hours will be a race to the finish.
