John Lonigro
 

We had 10 participants in this month's Second Sunday Sprint.  The winner for July is Chas, W2SH, with 18 QSO points.  Congratulations to Chas.  He will receive his certificate shortly.

The overall leader for 2021 is Carl, WB0CFF, with 106 QSO points, followed by Glen, N4MJ (71 points), and Chas, W2SH (69 points).

Welcome to Gary, W0ITT, from Sturgeon, MO.  This is Gary's first entry in the Second Sunday Sprint and hopefully not his last.

Re: Magic Box

Doc: Curious to know the selling price as I have an unassembled magic box somewhere in storage and I might post for sale, assuming I can locate it. Thanks - John w4usf.   ( W4USF at ICLOUD DOT COM )

I’m not the one with a magic box to sell. Scroll down to the originator of this thread to see who is selling one. It looks like K5OSA has one to sell.

You can read all about the "Magic Box" in the kit section of the 4SQRP website.   It is a kit that was retired many years ago, yet every once in a while, someone is interested in obtaining one.  It was designed by K8IQY and lets you connect a transmitter, receiver, and antenna to it.  It acts as a T/R switch, making little QRP transmitters much easier to operate.  As I said, you can read all about it in the "retired kits" area in the kit section of the website.

Don't forget the July Second Sunday Sprint is this coming Sunday evening, 7-9 pm CDT (Monday 0000-0200Z).  If you don't forget to enter the contest, I'll try not to forget to score it Tuesday.
