Written by DL1YFF   

Due to our corprate identity we have our RRDXA badge. Meanwhile we have many new members who have not one yet, or some badges might have gone lost. So there obviously is a demand for new RRDXA badges. This is the occasion to order a new badge. It will cost 10 Euros and it will be available to Ham Radio, where you can get it.

 

 

 

Please, make your obligatory orders with call and name via e-mail to my address This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

As an exception I shall send you the badge (e.g. if you cannot visit the Ham Radio). But then shipping costs mut be added. All details later.

All orders until May 15th at the latest (deadline). Then I shall order.

Thank you and best 73

de Hans, DL1YFF

Problems while uploading your score ? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   

Hi Folks,

some users who use Internet Explorer have reported problems when they enter and submit contest scores. The error message looks like "SQL Error 1064 .....". After some research I could locate the relevant lines in the code but cannot fix the problem immediately. As long as I have it not fixed on the server you can use the following work-around and modify your browser settings:

Open Internet Explorer, then go to
-> tools -> Internet Options -> Privacy (tab). Here you set the slider to "low". Restart Internet Explorer and the error will not occur anymore. I will let you know when I can fix the problem on the server.

Dear Contester,

we are QRV in the CQWW CW 2009 Contest with A31A. Please keep our call in mind and please have a look for us as we will especially try to call for EU on the lowbands. But this will be a big challenge to get through the european contest QRM. But we hope that at least some QSO's will be possible.

At the moment we are QRV as 5W0NM, mainly in CW. EU is good to work at grayline on 40m and 30m.
