I have never worked the SSS, and not sure I'll hear anyone way out here in southeast WA State, but I'll be on. Licensed in 1963 too, CW skills not what they used to be either. I'm just happy to be here.

Everett:
Thanks for your comments.  You are more than welcome
to send or
receive as slowly as you wish.  Your score is better
than mine.  I
have a combination of conflicts and a lousy antenna. 
Nobody had
better complain about you sending QRS.  The SSS is
really just
motivation to get people on the air, not a cutthroat
contest.  The
more you operate, the faster you'll eventually be
able to copy.
I'm pretty sure the rules will change for 2018,
allowing 10 Watt
sideband QSOs.  Nobody has been against that rule
change yet.  The
CW portion will remain the same.  I'm waiting for
the new year
because I don't want to change rules in the middle
of the contest.

Hi John



I will be on the SSS with my BJ. I have
really
enjoyed it. My first ticket was in 1963. I
am ok with
the SSB power change to 10 watts PEP. My cw
speed is way
down as my mind does not process things as
fast as they
use too. My lowest score was 0 and highest
score was 3.
Who cares, I will be on the SSS. I hope to
work you and
guys and please don't get mad if I ask
you to QRS. I am
in it to have fun and not to win it.

Folks:



The SSS (Second Sunday
Sprint) is
especially early in the
month this

time.  It's next
Sunday, October 8th. 
As usual, it runs from 7-9
PM

CDT.  The complete rules
are available
on the 4SQRP website.  They
are

also available on the result
reporting
site, which is

www.qrpcontest.com/4sqrp. 
As a reminder
to the  sideband members of
the

group, this contest is NOT
CW only.  The
QRP-ARCI uses 3985. 7285,
and

14285 kHz for areas to look
for sideband
activity.  I suggest we use


those same frequencies for
any sideband
activity during the SSS. 
As I

mentioned before, if you do
try
sideband, make a note of it
in the

comments section of your
score report,
even if your score is 0
QSOs,

just to give the rest of us
a gauge on
the activity level. 
We'll keep

the maximum power level at 5
Watts this
year, but I'm seriously


considering upping that
level to 10
Watts (sideband only) for
next

year's contest. If you
have strong
feelings either way about
this

potential change, let me
know.
