On the air anyone?

Johnny AC0BQ
 

Good evening:
I was just wondering if anyone has been on the air today?
I was doing computer stuff this morning and 
40m was open to eastern MO and Central MI!
I worked a new CW op and a more seasoned one on 7.122.
Tells me I need to monitor more often.
I guess this proves the bands might be ok if we call CQ or monitor them now and then.
I plan to be listening on 40 tomorrow morning with coffee on hand.
Listen for me or call CQ.

New SMD "beginners kit"

Johnny AC0BQ
 

Bulk order of aa0zz receiver
8:03 pm
David .. Tom, WA0ITP, me (34)
Cynthia I am sure it's after business hours, but please let me know tomorrow if this worked. If not we will try something else! Thanks Johnny AC0BQ On Monday, September 12, 2016, Johnny Matlock



Good evening all:
We're thinking about offering a SMD "beginners" kit to our line up for those who have never tried, or want to try their hand at SMD kit building, without breaking the bank!

It would be a very small usable AA0ZZ  keyer that would fit in almost any existing QRP rig you may have.

It's foot print would be less than 1" square, powered by the rigs power, with 1 or 2 push buttons that would be mounted off the circuit board in a location that's convenient.

Very small, new technology, and something to use!
What do you think??

Nice idea, and the cost would allow building just for fun, even if the keyer was never put in a rig. Sure would like to see an 80 meter CW transmit...

I'm just north of Ron, AG1P, in Newport, Oregon.  Just about every day here seems to settle in the low 60's with a somewhat chilly ocean breeze!  We've been here a couple of weeks now, and will be here for the rest of the month before heading back to AZ.  Coming to Oregon in the summer is our annual event to get away from the AZ summer heat.  We love September here!

Clear night with gusty 15 mph north wind and down to 50 tonight. Certain weeds have already given up the ghost, but only the rare tree shows signs of turning.

Hints of fall here in mid-coast Maine!

You can look at the month's and cumulative results yourself at any time
by going to qrpcontest.com/4sqrp. However, for your convenience, here's
a quick summary:

9 people joined in on the fun, although a couple struck out - better
luck next month. While we can do better, 9 people is better than three
or four, which I believe we've had some previous months. If one more
person had participated, we'd be in double digits. Double digits should
be a goal for October. Remember, there is NO October 4x4 Sprint this
year. Participation in that sprint last year was so low that it wasn't
worth the effort of tabulating scores or providing certificates. This
October (next month), we will simply have another SSS.

The September winner of the coveted monthly certificate is Johnny
(AC0BQ) with 9 total QSO points, followed by Chas (W2SH) and Darryl
(KK5IB), each with 8 points.

As far as total score for the entire contest period is concerned
(November, 2015 to December, 2016) Chas (W2SH) still has the lead, but
Johnny (AC0BQ) and Gary (KF7WNS) aren't far behind (49 and 46 points,
respectively).

Paul (N0NBD) had a big uptick in his score, no doubt due to the new KX2
he recently purchased. Your rig must be working pretty well, Paul!

Johnny will be receiving his certificate shortly. Congratulations to him
and to all who participated. Until next month...

Hope I didn't let you down -- since you asked us to log in even if we scored zero... I did.I tuned around for > 30 minutes. Tried to work one guy but lost the fight with someone else.

But I was fried -- I was up early, had been to the Cards game, and by the time 7pm came around the beer was beginning to wear off :-) Next month I'll do better!
