I am going to need HOA antennas for at least about 3 to 4 mo. I have 20 and 40 dipoles on hand that I can put in my attic under my standard composition shingles roof...or I could put up a backpacker 10/20/40 Endfedz up there.  Any suggestions or observations?

Need help with software for Modular 40 meter CW transceiver from Aug 2016 QST

N4DR
 

I have the 40 meter Modular QRP CW transceiver from the August 2016 QST. Does anyone know where I can
find a copy of the firmware? It was working fine until I recently took it out of mothballs, only to find the software 
was corrupted and it did not work.
Thanks in advance for any help .

73,

Re: Ozarkcon 2021

I will mark that date on my calendar and will try to "attend".  I've wanted to attend one of these in person, but have found it difficult to get away that long, as I am caregiver for my wife of 55 years.  So sorry the in-person event had to be cancelled again, but it is probably best for all of us.  Jane and I have nearly completed the on-line course in learning to be hermits! Since March 1 she has only left the house for necessary medical appointments.  I make fast trips through a grocery store with a list arranged in the order of the store's layout; I try to minimize my exposure so I don't bring any bad cooties home to Jane, who is so susceptible to disease (and allergic to flu shots). A virtual event would be perfect, especially being able to plan for the date this far in advance.
Canton OH Chapter 21, QCWA, has been having weekly informal gatherings via ZOOM; they are a great wAy to get together.  We have a number of members join in who cannot normally attend due to distance.
After many years, Jane got her license (KC8IEE). She understands the need for an occasional key, etc.. I try to reciprocate by honoring her desire for a new crockpot or toaster oven, etc., occasionally.  This has worked for us for 55+ years!
I am looking forward to seeing you on April 10!

Hello Mike
Yes! 
I would appreciate you help very much.
I am a ver inexperienced Zoom user.
I’m assuming we will use zoom 
For Webinar and will need to buy a user license.
The club will take care of this, Ron our treasurer has some Money.

I have been looking at the GQRP model from last year.

I’m lining up speakers and will ask them to “record” their presentations.

Do I need to have them do any thing 
Other than that?

Thank you very much Mike
I’m sure we will visit more in the near future!

P.s.  nice to work you on the Jan SSS.  You and a K3Y/4 was about all I could manage.  Band was so noisy.  I could see the 4s signals buried in the noise on the IC7300 but just couldn’t pull them out of the mud on 80 mtrs.

SSS Results for January

John Lonigro
 

January started off quite a bit better than last January, in which the winner had only 6 QSO points and there were 5 non-zero entries. This year, the January winner (John K4BAI) had a whopping 28 QSO points and we had 13 participants.  Perhaps the propagation gods are waking up??  And, since this is the first month of a new year, that means John is leading in the annual contest as well.  That is sure to change though.  Carl WB0CFF and Carl AA5VE (I like that call) both had 20 or more QSO points.

Congratulations to John. He will receive his January certificate shortly.  And congratulations to all 13 participants.  Here's hoping the participation continues at a high level all year long.

With Ozarkcon officially canceled for 2021, we probably should think about an Ozarkcon sprint for part of that weekend.  After Johnny comes out with the club's virtual Ozarkcon plans, I'll try to come up with a sprint that dovetails with his plans.

I’m glad you liked the key, it is a nice memory from the past.
  
I sat beside Jerry at Ozarkcon during a build a thon several years ago, he was a character!

I know what you mean about the keys and or the cost when it comes to the XYL. Mine has sort of made peace with it. She knows that these “new” Toys come and go from time to time.

We will have a real Ozarkcon again soon I hope. I think the group is wanting to get together in person and

Sorry you have to cancel but maybe I will be able to attend for the first time.  Ozarkon has been on my bucket list for years but can’t do that and Dayton/FDIM both.  I will be very happy to pay whatever fees necessary to attend this year.  I am looking for incense that smells like solder to have going in the background to use during the videos (like even the smell of popcorn enhances the experience of watching a movie on TV).

I received the Black Widow key kit yesterday.  Thanks for leaving it in the original mailing envelope.  I am sure that enhanced the value of it.  My wife saw it all and asked how much...... and then asked how many CW keys I needed...... both very touchy questions to an old ham.  I was kind and didn’t ask her about how many cookbooks (that she doesn’t use) and other items that have collected in our home for 47 years...... she almost laughed when she asked the question though.  Good mood and a good day for ham radio.

The first QSO Today Expo was a great success with over 16,000 attendees and the March 13-14, 2021 event is anticipated to be even larger. The QSO Expo team has been working hard to make this upcoming Expo even better with new speakers, panel discussions, kit building workshops, and much more. 

Anyone can attend from their home or office. 

Early Bird Tickets are just $10 (to help cover the cost of this event, $12.50 at the "door") and include entry for the Live 2 day period as well as the 30-day on-demand period). Registration can be found at www.qsotodayhamexpo.com

The ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio® in the United States, is a QSO Today Virtual Ham Expo Partner.

At the Expo, amateur radio operators will be able to:
  • Learn from a packed line-up of 60+ renowned ham radio speakers such as Bob Allphin, K4UEE, on “My Favorite DXpeditions to DXCC Top 10 Most Wanted”; Michael Foerster, W0IH, on “Using the Arduino In Your Shack”; and Ron Jones, K7RJ, on “3D Printer Basics”.
  • Take part in Live virtual kit building workshops. Kits will be available for purchase and delivered to you in time for the Expo so you can participate and build from the convenience of your home.
  • Walk through the virtual exhibit hall filled with popular amateur radio suppliers. Watch live product demos of the latest equipment. New video technology will be used to provide a better experience for attendees to engage with exhibitors.
  • Outside of our virtual auditorium is a virtual lounge with tables and chairs for live video chats to allow a “hallway meetup” experience.
  • Prior to the Expo, take advantage of our new speaker calendar technology to download speaker times in your local time zones to your Google or Outlook calendar. You’ll then have a complete schedule of the sessions you want to join.

If you’ve never been to an in-person Hamfest or Expo, you can participate from the convenience of your home or office without spending a dime on travel! This platform simulates a full convention experience with an exhibit hall and exhibit booths staffed by live attendants, speaker auditorium with live Q&A, and now our video lounge. 

And remember that you can return over the 30 days after the QSO Today Expo to listen to speakers you missed during the Live period, explore, and re-engage exhibitor offerings.

Flexradio is the Expo’s Platinum Sponsor and Gold sponsors as of this time include Elecraft, RFinder, and Connect Systems.

Go to https://www.qsotodayhamexpo.com/ now to learn more and get registered!

We look forward to having you join us at Expo for an amazing and engaging experience.

This platform simulates a full convention experience with an exhibit hall and exhibit booths staffed by live attendants, speaker auditorium with live Q&A, and now our video lounge. 

And remember that you can return over the 30 days after the QSO Today Expo to listen to speakers you missed during the Live period, explore, and re-engage exhibitor offerings.

Flexradio is the Expo’s Platinum Sponsor and Gold sponsors as of this time include Elecraft, RFinder, and Connect Systems.

Good Evening Group 

Well I was hoping that I would not have to make this announcement, but due 
to the continued spread of Covid and the delays that have been encountered getting the vaccinations 
rolled out, we have decided to Cancel the in Person Ozarkcon for 2021,
that would have been in Branson, Mo. 

But, as an old saying goes, when you get handed Lemons, make Lemonade?

Well this is not exactly Lemonade but something a whole lot better!

We're planning to host a Virtual Ozarkcon via one of the social media platforms and disturbed via the World wide Web.
It will be very similar in format to the in person Ozarkcon 
except we will be able to view it from the safety of our homes. 

The Virtual Ozarkcon is planned for the Second weekend of April, on Saturday the 10th of April. We moved it forward a week since Easter weekend is the 3rd and 4th. 

We're working on the details and more details will be posted as soon as they are available. 

We will have a great lineup of speakers with a wide variety of Qrp presentations for you to enjoy. 
We plan to have a Wackey Key contest, with Video clips to be submitted online, as well as
the long standing and very popular Home Brew contest. 

We have decided to hold off on the Buildathon this year since we can't be in the same room together.
Who doesn't enjoy the smell of Melted solder and burning rosin?

We haven't decided if we will have the K0N ops on the air but we will let you know. 

Anyway, that's all I have for now. 
So stay tuned for updates as they are available.

Stay healthy and I will see you all at the 2021 Virtual Ozarkcon.

I received an e-mail purportedly from 4SQRP Owner saying I am or will be suspended from this site because I supposedly sent a spam e-mail which appears to be about a 40 meter endorsement for Bert Banlier F6HKA.  No such e-mail came from this computer.
Has anyone else on here gotten anything like this?  It couldn't be a phishing e-mail inasmuch as I haven't bought or sold anything here, so the scammer wouldn't get into my bank, credit card, etc. if I stupidly clicked on on if the blue links in that e-mail.  One of them was the message about the award...they could have copied a legitimate 4SQRP award message title and are using it as the title of a link to some sort of malware.  The other link was "Resume Subscription"
I haven't deleted the message yet, as I don't know if someone, the owner or moderator wants to review it or has some instruction on some e-mail address where I should forward it so the source can be tracked.

Thanks Johnny!  That’s a big relief for us old folks in our 80’s.  Really looking forward to the virtual Ozarkcon 2021.

P.s.  nice to work you on the Jan SSS.  You and a K3Y/4 was about all I could manage.  Band was so noisy.  I could see the 4s signals buried in the noise on the IC7300 but just couldn’t pull them out of the mud on 80 mtrs.
