If you don't use an exotic contest logging package, such as DX4WIN or WriteLog, this guy will sell you access to all his software for $49.00 or you can buy it contest by contest fro $6 to $10 a contest. His packages are intuitive and easy to use. I particular like his stuff in a multi user environment where you have different user with different skills. We use his Field Day software (network version) because almost anyone can sit down and start using it with about 60 seconds of training.

January 2008 Contest:

SSB: 1800Z January 19 to 0600Z January 20, 2008 (Third full weekend in
January)

5. Entry Classification:
1. Single Operator:
1. One person performs all transmitting, receiving, spotting and
logging functions as well as equipment and antenna adjustments. 2.
Use of helpers or spotting nets, regardless of the mode of communication
(e.g. PacketCluster) is not permitted. 3. Only one transmitted
signal allowed at a time. 4. May operate 10 out of the 12 hours of
the contest. Off times must be at least 30 minutes in length.
5. Multi-Operator Two-Transmitter:
1. More than one person performs transmitting, receiving and logging
functions, etc. 2. A maximum of two transmitted signals at any given
time, each on a different band. Both transmitters may work any and all
stations. 3. Shall keep a separate log for each transmitter. 4.
Each transmitter must have at least 10 minutes between band changes.
5. May operate for the entire 12 hours of the contest.

Bands: 160, 80, 40, 20, 15, 10 meters only, except no 160 meters for the
RTTY contest. You may work a station once per band. Suggested
frequencies are 1815, 3535, 7035, 14035, 21035 and 28035 kHz (35 kHz up
from band edge for Novice/Tech) on CW; and 1865, 3850, 7225, 14250,
21300, 28500 kHz (28450 for Novice/Tech) on SSB. When operating on
160-meters, please respect the DX window of 1830-1840 kHz and keep SSB
operations above 1840 kHz.

1.
Exchange: Operator name and station location (state, province or
country) for North American stations; operator name only for non-North
American stations. If the name sent is changed during the contest, as
sometimes happens with multi-operator stations, the name used for each
QSO must be clearly identified in the log.

2. Multipliers: Are U.S. states (including KH6 and KL7), 13 Canadian
provinces/territori es (British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan,
Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI,
Newfoundland/ Labrador, Yukon, NWT and Nunavut) and other North American
countries. District of Columbia counts as Maryland. Non-North American
countries, maritime mobiles and aeronautical mobiles do not count as
multipliers, but may be worked for QSO credit.
3. Output power must be limited to 100 watts for eligible entries.
Use of external amplifiers capable of more than 100 watts output is not
allowed.

Re: d-104 mike

Jim Hargrave
 

Larry,

The D-104 can be made to work on most any AM/SSB rig. I bought mine in the
early 1960's and have used it on many rigs, including the HW-32 (20m SSB)
and the SB-401 (SSB). However the pickle handle PTT would not be very
efficient for CW keying on the HW-16..(:->.

I still use the D-104 daily as my main Mic. I am currently using it on my
Yaesu FT-920 and I also modified one for my Son-n-laws Icom IC-756proIII. We
both get good audio reports.

My D-104 is still original and I use a homebrew outboard impedance matching
amplifier for the solid state radios. Over the years, I have successfully
installed and used mine on the following radios: Collins 32V2 & KWM-1,
Heathkit SB-401 & HW-32, Swan 350, Kenwood TS-120, Icom IC-735, and Yaesu
FT-920.

If you or anyone else is interested in the D-104 amplifier, I have uploaded
the information with schematic to the files section of this reflector.
