NJQRP Skeeter Hunt - What's next?

Larry Makoski
 

Skeeter Hunters,

Wow! That was a blast! Even though band conditions were far from stellar (I'm trying to be kind!), there seemed to be a lot of activity - and that's because of all of YOU! Without you, the Skeeter Hunt would be a big nothing. All of you out there make it what it is - and I'm so grateful to all of you for that.

The next step is to submit your log summaries. This is not a complicated or arduous undertaking - NJQRP means to keep it "Easy peasy, lemon squeezy". No ADIFs or Cabrillos are needed - no jumping through hoops. Just send an e-mail to w2lj@... with the following (example shown)

Larry - W2LJ - NJ
Skeeter #13 - All CW
Single Op
Skeeter QSOs - 23
Non-Skeeter QRP QSOs - 5
Non-Skeeter QRO QSOs - (if any)
S/P/Cs - 18
Station Class Multiplier X4
Bonus - Yes or No as to whether or not you used a homebrew antenna.

Please feel free to include your soapbox comments and any photos you wish to share.

All this is due two weeks from today - August 30th, 2020. The Scoreboard will be posted over Labor Day weeebnd and certificates and the publishing of the Soapbox will follow soon afterward.

On behalf of NJQRP - once again ...... thanks do much for being there!

Larry W2LJ

No, John. It does not have to be.  There are four Station Classes in the Skeeter Hunt:

Station Classes and Multipliers
X1 Home stations - commercial equipment
X2 Home stations - home brewed or kit built equipment
X3 Portable station - commercial equipment
X4 Portable station - home brewed or kit built equipment

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.

I had some qrm at the beginning, but they either moved or quit transmitting.

I could QSY after I pick off the first round of check ins.

Although I QNI'd the 40m net (didn't bother to try the 80m net with just a dipole), I have never had such bad QRM from the Spanish-language SSB splatter that went down as far as 7,120.50 kHz.

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

I will be operating portable using my  PRC319:
Time  1600z;  Freq  14060 kHz +/- 2 .
 
The QSL card for this operation will be my Dinosaur Card.
Maybe you saw the latest TV Doc about the Corral Bluffs fossil site in Colorado.
That is Us, We have fossils!
Ice Station Zebra is only a few miles from the Florissant Fossil Beds.

I rented a house near the fossil beds years ago when I was stationed in Ft Carson.   I’ll be listening for you.
