Between 1st November till the 15th December 2014 I will be operating with special event call VP8LP/100 to commemorate the centenary of two naval battles from World War 1
Battle of Coronel http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Coronel
Battle of the Falklands http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Falkland_Islands
Please Note: VP8LP does not respond to people who call using only their suffix.
Good operating tip would be to give your full callsign once, then listen 4-5 seconds to see if I have heard you or am replying to someone else before you make a second call.
I consider stations who call - call - call repeatedly without pausing to listen to be QRMers
AND WILL BE IGNORED.
My cards are printed by Gennady, UX5UO
Please note I do not upload logs electronically. The reason for this is because requests were coming in for uploads to too many different QSL systems, for example LOTW, EQSL, QRZ, Clublog and so on. There is alwaysa huge amount of email requests associated with log uploads and my hobby is amateur radio, not email, so I have decided I will not upload to any systems to avoid this increasing problem.
I have also recently had a number of Bureau cards returned undelivered, which is a waste of cards and effort, so unfortunately I have to say I will no longer respond to cards sent via the Bureau - direct cards with sufficient postage and self addressed envelope only please.
I do apologise having come to this decision.
I am a supporter of the DX Code of Conduct:
I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.
I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.
I will not trust the DX cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.
I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.
I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.
I will always send my full call sign.
I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously.
I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.
I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.
I will not transmit when the DX station requests geographic areas other than mine.
When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.
I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.
I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.
