Is. No3: AO-7 Distance record? [UPDATE]




Hello folks,
 
great competition!  FB ! Here I've NEW updates about   
the "longest distance"  QSOs via  AO-7. 
Actually, I've a few comments and I need your opinion
in order to realise and make much better this list.
Feel free to send me your comments, ideas, QSOs + QSL cards
to my personal Email (sv1bsx@yahoo.gr).

Now, my first comment is about this idea.  I had a draft notice
in my PC with "longest distance QSOs via AO-7". Just before
2-3 days, John LA2QAA wondered in our Sat-Forum (Eu-Amsat),
if his QSO with AJ9K it was (or not) the "longest distance QSO".
That was the begigning for me in order to realise and publish a list,
so John's question it was the "trigger". (good-one John!)

2)ES1RF, Genna, he told me about inaccurate distance in 
a contact of list. He was probably right. So I need to
check carefully all entries, that is too difficult.
(Check please carefully your contact, before send it to me).

3)Today I received the Emails of i8CVS, Domenico. He 
send me also 2 nice QSL cards for QSOs via AO-6 & 7. 
So, as Domenico wrote and suggested in a way, it is 
necessary to have the QSL cards in order to confirm  the 
record-list & QSOs. I agree 100%.
I think nowadays that is very easy job. You can send me your scanned 
QSL card through an Email, as Domenico did it.
Thus,  the list will be much more accurate and valid.
Very soon I will make a Web-page with this list and QSL
cards. A  mere example -under construction this moment- is here:

http://sv1bsx.50webs.com/oscardx/odx.html

4)It will be more informative list, if including additional
infos. I believe some "fields" like the Report, Mode, Smode 
are absolutely necessary. May be the Power-OUT as well. 
Another suggestion is about a small description of used antennas.

5) Someone asked me if is possible to create a "trophy", or 
award. OK, nowadays it is easy to design and make an Award. 
But I wondering: this ranking is not stable, we have active 
Satellites, so the record-list  is impossible to stay unchanged for ever.

Today PH7AT & Wb4LHD  are shared the 1st place. 
If after 2, 3 months,  two other operators achieve a bit  
longer-distance QSO than PH7AT & WB4LHD,   what must 
to do?  If I have printed the PH7AT & WB4LHD's Awards  for the 1st place, 
the next Hams will also have on their Shacks another "1st-place" Award !!?
Right ?


6) I suggest to replace the "longest distance QSO" with "ODX"
(Oscar-DX) abbreviation (tks to ES1RF).

7) I have also suggestions for:
I) A new "WORLD-RECORD ODX"  record-list 
(definitely via HEO... where are you AO-40? )

II) Record-Lists for FO-29 and other Satellites. However I don't know
if we need too many Lists for each one Satellite or is enough
a single List for all LEOs... let me know.

That's all folks ! Thanks for reading.

73, Mak SV1BSX
