I have questions about how to indicate whether I'm at my main house station, or portable. And, does it matter with regard to who I try to contact on the 3905 Century Club nets.
I did "Setup", "Station Locations" and have two stations. One, my house with lots of information filled in like State, County, Grid Square and "Station Call Sign" of WV0VW. The second station has less filled out and the "Station Call Sign" is WV0VW/P.
I assume when participating in a net I choose "Current Station Location". It seems that when I log a contact I will get a record of whether I was operating from "WV0VW" or "WV0VW/P", however a person logging me as a contact would never get "WV0VW/P" as my callsign. They would know I was portable because when the Net Controller checked me in they checked me in as portable.
Do I have that much correct?
When I fill out a QSL card for my contact that happened while Portable I will of course indicate that. (Actually, I have two different versions of QSL cards - one with my house's grid square, etc. and one with the word "Portable" prominent and space to write in location information.")
I was recently told that it makes sense to contact the same person twice on the same 3905 net - once when portable and once when not portable - that it somehow counts twice. Is that true? Does it make sense?
