Re: Second Sunday Sprint Results

John - KK4ITX
 

It could be that the propagation is inching up some.  I have participated several times without reporting no score.

Again last night, Johnny came booming in at S8 and was completely gone in a second and a half on 40m.  20m simply has ZERO noise and not even Digital chatter...... told my XYL that we must live in a Black Hole !

Hope to make the 40 Net tonight.

In September, we had 14 SSS participants, which I thought was very good,
until October came around.  This month, we had 16 participants, which is
close to a record, which is 17 for 2020.  I don't know the reason for
the sudden upsurge in participation, but I'm not complaining.  Maybe the
pandemic is making everyone bored.

The winner this month, with 24 QSO points, is Nick Nichols, WB5BKL.
Congratulations to Nick.  He will receive his certificate in the email
shortly.

Also, welcome to Steve, WB5CTS.  While he's been a participant in the
past, October was the first month he participated in 2020.

The big news for the month is there is a tie for first place for the
year.  With only two months to go, both John, K4BAI, and Chas, W2SH,
have 144 points.  In third place is Nick, WB5BKL, with 128 points. Carl,
WB0CFF, is also within striking distance.  It's not likely, but it's
possible we could end up with a 3- or 4-way tie at the end of the year. 
There won't be any playoffs or sudden death contests to determine the
overall winner.  Regardless of how many people end up in first place
after December, all will get a certificate declaring them a "Co-Winner
for 2020".  Then, after a few brief moments of fame for the winners, the
spreadsheet will be cleared out, ready to start anew in 2021.

NAQCC 16th Anniversary

John - KK4ITX
 

The NAQCC is celebrating their 16th Anniversary this week with a CW Sprint from 8:30-10:30p Eastern on Tuesday, October 13 (yup tomorrow).  Here’s a page of more information: http://naqcc.info/sprint_rules.html this should give you all the info needed to join in.

You don’t have to be a member to participate and you don’t have to even be good at CW because almost everyone is there to help you learn and appreciate CW.

So dust off your key(s), turn off your “heater” and drop your power down to 5w...... it should be a good time !

73,

John

Re: 4S tuner

Curt M.
 

I have both tuners and I use them both.  The 4S tuner works well but the capacitors on my need worked back and forth every now and then to clean them.  One is worse than the other. Typically the next time I use it if it s a few weeks later I have to do the same thing. Other than that it works very well. It’s also very fun to build.

Welcome Jerry! 4SQRP has grown well beyond the boundaries of the original group. I'm sure you'll have fun using the tuner.

I’m looking forward to receiving my 4S tuner to go with my MTR3B. I’ve been using an Elecraft T1 but feel a more hands on approach would be a better option for me.
Thanks for allowing me to be part of the group even though I’m from Georgia 😉
