Re: Prizes from OZARKCON 2021

Ed Meyer, WG5F
 

UPDATE:
Many of you have received your prizes which were shipped directly from 4SQRP kitters, and individual donors. 
Thanks to all the 4SQRP'ers who took care of those shipments!

I just dropped off 87 packages, bubble mailers, boxes, etc at the Tulsa OK post office.   
If you won a door prize that I'm shipping to you, you should start seeing notifications that you have a package on the way. 
A few emails went out on Saturday regarding this Monday shipment, but the rest were suppressed until Monday evening... 
So, we'll see how fast USPS is able to process that buggy full of mailings.   
In case you don't see any status on your tracking number for a day or two... keep these FAQ's in minds:

Keep in mind that USPS can often take up to 24 hours to update tracking statuses. There are a few reasons why your package status may not be updated right away:

 

  • If you drop your package off after hours, USPS won't scan it in until the next day (this is not the case for the 4SQRP packages)
  • It's in queue at a USPS facility
  • The postal workers scanning packages simply didn't get to it that day
  • Due to record-breaking volume, we’re also seeing a lot more instances where local Post Offices ship packages out without scanning them initially. In most of these cases, it’ll take a couple of days for the first scan to show up and mark the package as “In Transit"
So, it might be a few days - but pretty soon almost all prizes have now been dispatched.
I have two or three prizes with addresses that were rejected and I'll reach out to those QRP'ers ASAP for updated information.
I also need to get the DX Engineering gift certificates in the mail - they sent us physical certificates, so I'll forward those via USPS.
This has been a learning adventure...
By the way - it took me an extra week to get the mailing done as I could not order mailing labels and #0 bubble envelopes from Office Depot or Staples for same day pick up.  So I figured, ok, Amazon prime says they deliver next day, and they were considerably less expensive.   IT TOOK AMAZON 4 DAYS TO DELIVIVER!!!! Ugh.
So - the first time I had the chance to work on this was this weekend.
I really am sorry it's taking so long. 
I know you guys all know what problems the pandemic has foisted upon us, but I didn't see this on coming.
(Really, no labels and #0 bubble envelopes at Office Depot/Staples?  Really?)
Y'all enjoy your prizes !

OzarkCon 2021

Mike - WA0ZOG
 

I'm going to take a quick moment to say thank you to everyone who worked so hard to put on the event and the individual sessions.

Everything was really nicely laid out and well done, and the content was very well thought out.

I was also very shocked to win the Cric-Key, and it was shipped quickly after the event was over.

To me, this just shows the quality of the group and the folks that volunteer to keep it going.

It's really nice to see a group of this size working this hard to put out such excellent kits and conferences, and it makes me glad to be a part of it in any way I can.  Thanks again!

72,
Mike, WA0ZOG


Re: Prize mug ready to ship

Bob Parr
 

How are you making these?  Are these decals applied or getting them made in such a way as to be dishwasher safe?   I might be interested in buying one with my London Calling or BJ agent Certificate on the back side.

The 15oz custom mug won by K3YQU, John is done and ready to ship.
Stay tuned next year for another chance to win a custom mug at Ozarkcon. 

I also figured I should build one for myself commemorating my first "London Calling" event.

2021 Sasquatch Stomp Scores Posted

Wayne McFee
 





Hello All,

 

We have posted the 2021 Sasquatch Stomp scores in a pdf file on the Sasquatch Stomp page here:

 

https://sites.google.com/site/pnwqrpgroup/sasquatch-stomp

 

This year’s top scorer was Bill, WA7NCL, with a score of  -374,115 points.  Congratulations, Bill.  Mark, K7NEW came in second and Jack, W7LD came in third.

 

Numbers were definitely down this year, both in terms of contacts made and the number of score sheets turned in.  Having the sunspots totally disappear on the day of the event was no doubt a factor in that.  We will hope that conditions improve by next time, and they should.

 

A big thank you to everyone who participated.  A special mention for John, AL7JK, who listened carefully up in AK, but had no contacts.  Thanks for being there, John.

 

73,

 

Wayne  NB6M

 

 

 


Thank you for IC-705!

AG4CC
 

My grand prize arrived late Friday, and I haven’t stopped playing with it. 

Thanks again to the club for providing this fantastic surprise, and to Ron AG1P for the excellent shipping job. 

I will be in the Run for the Bacon tomorrow so look for me on 40m trying to avoid contest and SST activity. If you haven’t tried this Flying Pigs event, or it’s been a while, give it a go. 

73,
Karen AG4CC 


FDIM Updates

nm0s_qrp
 

Many, many things have happened in the past few weeks as FDIM planning wraps up.  With five weeks to go before the May 22 date, it's time for an update!
First of all, we have had very generous donations of door prizes, which will be announced during the break times between presentations.  We also have a GRAND PRIZE that will be drawn at the end of the presentations, an ICOM IC-705! 

Prizes have been donated by Etherkits, FiveDash, NM0S Electronics, Breadboard Radio, 4 State QRP,  HF Signals, 3rd Planet Solar, MFJ, ARRL, and ICOM.  Thanks to all who who have come forward with donations!  Any other businesses or individuals who wish to donate a door prize, please contact me!

We are very gratified to see the number of registrations that have come on already.  We are on track to matching the number of registrations that we would expect on a normal year!  We will close registrations at midnight, CDT on May 15.  The web link to the FDIM presentation will be sent out shortly afterward, along with a .pdf of the Proceedings. Go to http://qrparci.org/fdim to register!

At 7:00 PM CDT, after the speakers' forum, the evening informal Q&A will open.  Here, speakers, vendors, and clubs will have an opportunity to speak briefly, and answer questions.  This event will run as long as we have folks wanting to talk!  I'm going to invite all of our QRP clubs and vendors to make sure they have a representative signed in to participate

I look forward to seeing you all at our FDIM event!

President, QRPARCI

Nice to meet you on the Net Johnny.

 

Good job on pulling my Bayou Jumper signal out of the QSB soup. I’ll have to get used to sending without a sidetone ‘til the Soup’er Upper kit is available.

 

I really enjoy being part of the 4SQRP group – Great bunch!

Finally made it !  There was about a two minute window on 40m where Johnny’s signal was readable and it started strong and wilted..... heard the BJ, mine is 80% assembled.

On 80m Johnny’s window was 20 seconds...... heard his call and that was it.

5w on a wire not bad from Florida to Kansas.

Thanks for your efforts Johnny.
