NJQRP Skeeter Hunt - tomorrow!

Jeff Logullo N0̸MII
 

Hi everyone,

Tomorrow's the annual NJQRP Skeeter Hunt -- have you applied for your Skeeter number yet? It's not too late! Send your email to request a number RIGHT NOW and you'll get one in time for tomorrow's contest. See below.

I decided I'd work hard to get a low number this year... and I succeeded. :-) 

Hope to hear and work other SLQS members tomorrow. Here's to good weather and good propagation!

72,
Jeff N0̸MII

Subject: [FPqrp-L] NJQRP Skeeter Hunt - tomorrow!
Date: August 15, 2020 at 6:35:14 AM CDT

Tomorrow, Sunday August 16th is the 9th running of the NJQRP Skeeter Hunt.

277 of you have signed up for Skeeter numbers, so there should be lots of activity out there. Our fingers are crossed that the Propagation Princess will be in a good mood and will cooperate. This is an all time record number of Skeeters - NJQRP thanks each and every one of you for participating. It's not too late to sign up for a number, I'll be issuing them right up to about 10:00 AM EDT tomorrow for any late comers - just send an e-amil to w2lj@... and I'll send you an e-mail back with your Skeeter Number for 2020.

If anyone is fuzzy about the rules, please visit http://www.qsl.net/w2lj - the rules are easy and not cumbersome. The exchange is easy and the main goal of this exercize is to provide ample fun - no jumping through hoops here.

Lastly, in these COVID times, please remember to stay safe. Back yard operations with a temporary antenna and a power source other than your home's commercial mains count as portable for the Skeeter Hunt. No need to go off into the public if you feel safer at home. If you do venture out, please keep yourself safe by observing your area's restrictions (i.e facial coverings, social distancing and above all Common Sense). We at NJQRP want to have you all back next year for the 10th Anniversary of the NJQRP Skeeter Hunt.

Go out there, be careful and have fun! Hope to hear you and get your call signs in the log!

In the FWIW column: I get the same SSB/noise QRM here in west TN on 7.122.  I presumed it is coming from S.A. but who knows.  Maybe someone with a directional antenna could help pinpoint it.  

Changing frequency seems a viable idea.

In the future if the NCS is similarly QRM'd, I would hope he would consider a QSY to a nearby frequency sufficiently lower.

Anyone in the group (US hams) have an unbuilt QRPometer kit they would sell?  Green board if possible?  Please let me know price if you .  Prefer to pay via Paypal.

 

Reason for wanting an unbuilt one - I do 3D printing and I'd like to be able to really closely refine the dimensions for the 4 corner screw holes and the exact size of the panels themselves.  I need this to help with refining the design of a 3D printed case for the QRPometer that I did earlier with the loan of a completed QRPometer from Larry Hastings, AB0AH.  His had the black PC board and I’d like to use the green board version to make sure the final case design will fit and look good on both versions.

 

Email me with any details please tow0eb (at) cox dot net so as not to clutter up the reflector

 

Thanks — W0EB
