It's a good use of ithe club callsign, but K0B is good also, and may be better.  Many hams chase special event call signs.  An announcement on qrp-l, QRPspots, QRZ, and any other big reflectors should be done a coupla times a day on Thurs, Friday, and Saturday.   As condx continue toward the weekend, this should insure lots of contacts.

As a reminder, the club call can be used by any member, maybe those at Brutus could use K0Bm and members elsewhere could use WQ5RP.  This would make it a large 4sqrp effort and Brutus could become an outstanding Fall Adventure, year after year.

Have a great time, I'll be with you in spirit.

Joy, and I should be in Pittsburg about mid-afternoon on Friday. Not going to camp out this year.

We plan on being at Brutus Saturday morning.

Fwd 2016 Peanut Power Sprint

konewt@...
 



The Bees have swarmed and the Skeeters have been hunted. 

The Labor Day Festivities are behind us and with less than 3 weeks to go-

Now it's time for a little snack - The Peanut Power Sprint!
 
Everyone plays... Outdoors, Indoors, lo/hi power... There is even a QRO category.
 
 
Sponsored by the North Georgia QRP Club (NoGaQrP), this sprint will be held on Sept. 25, 2016 from 4PM to 6PM EDT,
(Sept. 25, 2016 - 2000z to 2200z). Full rules are on the NoGaQrP website - http://www.nogaqrp.org/PeanutPower/rules.pdf

Your QSO will be worth more if you have a Peanut number; assigned new each year (see below).
 
The club is making this one different from most other QRP QSO events.
 
1. It is open to all amateurs at any power level. We do this to attract some new folks to QRP while running their
comfortable power - QRO (<= 100 watts pls). All are welcome. This is a fun event, not cut-throat!
 
2. It is a short sprint lasting only 2 hours and not tying up the entire afternoon. Although a brief sprint, please
run reasonable CW speeds so that all can copy.
 
3. It starts late in the day (right after close of TX QSO party!) which means we start at 1PM PDT, later than most contests.
 
4. There are categories for all situations - the prestigious category in the Peanut Power category - 1W CW, 2W PEP SSB or less
and operating from the field is the GOOBER CLASS! SOTA anyone?
 
5. Plaques will be awarded for each of 5 category winners (minimum 3 entries).
   
6. Sprint encourages SSB as well as CW contacts. The exchange: RS(T), State/Province/Country (S/P/C), and your Peanut Number or Power.
   Call CQ NUT and have FUN!
 
7. Multipliers count each band/mode. Work GA (or any S/P/C) on 3 bands and 2 modes = 6 multiplier. 
Puts emphasis on switching bands and modes during the event. Check SSB on the quarter hour.
 
8. This will encourage activity on the 3 permitted bands - 40M, 20M, and 15M. See the rules for the suggested frequencies for each
band/mode. Notice we are encouraging the now almost dead portion of 40M - 7061 kHz and up.
 
9. Logs are not submitted - simply a score - but keep your log in case it's requested for verification. Watch the NoGaQrP website
for results. There is an online score calculator. It's all on the website - http://www.nogaqrp.org
 
10. Work stations holding a Peanut Power Number (PPN) for 7 points. Stations worked not having a PPN (they will send power instead)
yield 3 points. Yes, QRO stations may request a PPN. Remember, you do not declare a category until you decide to send in your entry. 
If you get halfway through and change your power, simply enter under a different category than your original intention.
 
To request your PPN, send an email to NoGaNuT PeTe at Pete@... Requests for special numbers may no longer be accommodated.
Remember to include the phrase - "PEANUT POWER NUMBER" in the subject line of your request.
 
See the current list of Peanut Power Numbers here:  http://www.nogaqrp.org/PeanutPower/2016/PPN2016.pdf
 
Dang, those goobers are tasting great! http://tinyurl.com/olkg4za

Second Sunday Sprint is coming up

John Lonigro
 

Don't forget that this coming Sunday, September 11th, is the 2nd Sunday Sprint. I realize there is a slight conflict with the Brutus Bash - it happens every year, but must Bash participants should be home by Sunday night. Whether they are awake or not is a different question. Maybe this is a good chance for others to jump in and try to be the SSS winner for September.

There is another conflict this weekend, the MS150 bike ride, which I'll be participating in. I won't be home in time for the Sprint Sunday night. More importantly, I won't be around to send out the final reminders on Saturday or Sunday and might be too busy Friday as well. I'll try to remember to send out at least one more reminder in a couple of days. Please circle your calendar, put a string on your finger, or do whatever's necessary to remember to tune in Sunday night.

Thanks and 72,

John, AA0VE

Hello Chip
I would agree!
They are very high quality for the price.
You have to grab them very quick when he posts them or he sells out.

Thanks to Larry N0SA for making these paddles. I've had one for a few days now and really, really like it. Small, lightweight, with great feel. Beautifully machined and finished.

I kind of think he has under-priced it when you compare it to the competition.

Re: PSK try

I got on 3.580.5 at 9:00 pm last night (Thurs nite) till about 9:15 and saw nothing.
then went to 7.070.5 till about 9:30 pm
I didn't get the message out to the reflector till late ,so probably no one saw it.
No problem.....
We also had G1-G2 mag storm conditions , that didn't help.
Will try again next wed.
