Re: Latest SSS totals and winner


At home it's a 111' wahr end fed with ladder line for 80, 40, and the WARC bands, the far end is about 70 feet up in a neighbor's tree.
For the first 4x4 last year I operated off the deck at my daughter's house near Iowa City.  The ant was an 84 foor wahr tied to the railing and the far end was about 50' up the the only tree on the block 
Nothing fancy for sure, and maximizes the fun to money ratio.  Come to think of it, that's one of the things that's so satisfying about QRP.
GL to all on Saturday.

Real radios weigh less than a pound.
I love this radio stuff !

Our callsign trustee, Bart - W0IIT, would you please

log Terry - WA0ITP using the group callsign on this

coming Saturday. 


If there should be incorrect totals above, please let me

know. I sure could have messed up!


All the station reports have been CW, with no SSB or digital.


Don't forget to use your Cyclone40 if possible, and Terry is

stepping up with his prize.


Also the now famous 4x4 QRP Sprint is October 5th, 2013

which is a Saturday afternoon!


Please watch the 4sqrp reflector for any updates. We may

Thanks to all that make 4SQRP on-the-air events a success!
