GE Ron,
 
That was easy, thank you.  All I could see was "Search Groups" beside the field.  I'm looking for Walter's SSS rules so I can talk it up during the week, and send some info to Bruce Horn for his calendar, and also to Dave Martin.  He has a way of making announcements pop up just before the event. 
 
Just had a nice QSO with Rich, K8MEG, our first one.
 
Tnxc again es ttul.

Go to group page. Click on conversations.  The search bar at top of the page should say “search conversations”

I gotta ask, how does one search the Group's yahoo messages for a specific
topic, e.g. the word "sprint" ?

4x4 from Orlando

Kelly E
 

Nice day to be outside here in Orlando. Sunny, some clouds and 84 with a breeze and low humidity (for FL anyhow). Bands were not great but had moments of decent conditions. 40m was a ghost town here so I stayed on 20m all day. Got a late start so started with an EFHW but noise was bad and sigs were in the noise. So pulled out my jumper dipole and hauled it up about 33 ft with ends to crappie poles at 17 feet inverted vee style. Still had high noise which is probably result of Tropical Depression Karen and the storm up in the heartland that kept some of you off the air. Just a constant level of static that made listening for long periods tedious.

Only managed 9 contacts--7 4x4 but had fun with all, including a 20 min ragchew with a KY station who asked me what 4S was about. Nice fist and he is a QRP guy so pointed him to the website. His MFJ at 4 watts sounded fine in FL.

Strong sig of the day was Randy WB4QQJ who had to be running about 10KW. His signal was so strong that my AGC would lock up and I'd have to wait a few seconds every time I swept across his signal. I thought he said he'd be mobile for the event? QRP my foot.... :-) hi hi. KV6Z almost the same at times but lots of QSB from the OK stations today. Weakest sig of the day was another Orlando station... K2WO about 6.7 miles as the crow flies. Who'd a thunk it?

Nice to be out by the lake on a fall day. Thanks for the effort to make this happen and hope to get back up to Ozarkcon soon.

72,
Kelly K4UPG

club call, and Dave W0CH on 7.122 in less time than it takes to write about it!!
Lots of fun but man condx were TUFF here in the Pitts. A thunder boomer had
just passed and I was still listening to it when the sprint closed down. Didn't
work many Q's but had a blast.

Hi Terry

I thought that I'd provide come contacts (as opposed to actually entering the sprint) but you were the only contact that I was able to make.

OT: For Sale, Vibroplex "Champion" Bug

Jim Sheldon
 

Paring down my collection just a bit -- On the block is a nice Vibroplex "Champion" model, vintage 1962 in good operating condition with an extra weight to slow it down some.  Base is grey crackle finish and there is a bit of rust on the screws that hold the rubber feet on and on the base under the feet.  I've cleaned it as well as possible with mineral spirits.  Owing to it's age, there are a few bits of the crackle finish that are missing or showing wear and some blemishes in the chrome plating.  This is totally normal on one that's this old.  I've had it on the air and it runs just fine.
 
I'm going to list this on the Elecraft and Flying Pigs reflectors as well so if anyone is interested in it let me know soonest.  Off the list to keep the clutter down please.
 
I'm asking $100 plus shipping (USPS Priority Flat Rate with insurance will run around $12.50 if I remember right).  Cash, USPS Money Order or PayPal (Gift or add 5%).
 
First "I'll take it" (by date/time on the email) gets right of first refusal.  Pictures available on request.

OT: Retracting the Vibroplex "Deluxe Original" bug for sale ad.

Jim Sheldon
 

Just got done cleaning this key up and it cleaned up WAY too pretty not to keep.  I've decided to keep it and sell one of my older, "plane Jane" models instead.  Going to list that one for sale in a separate email a bit later.
 
Sorry for getting somebody's hopes up.

nvis antenna did better than vertical on sprint 4x4

Phil Anderson
 

Hey Bart,

I forgot to mention that the noise here was less on my home-brew NVIS dipole
than on the expensive SteppIR 33 foot vertical fir 7122. Hm. May switch to the alternative
currency that guys are using on the web now.

unc Phil.


Re: WQ5RP #30

Phil Anderson
 

Hey Bart, looking at my log I worked both you and Terry. Fun huh.
So I worked 4SQRP # 30!!!!! Does that count toward another W25 along
with WA0ITP already worked? Ha!

By the way, I noticed that there was confussion on what message
to send on each sprint qso. The download I read said to send
"RST, SPC, and 4X4?" RST, of course is aok. I found the definition
for SPC lower on the downloaded instructions and used KS as you did.
But what the heck is 4x4? Some were senting their NR # for 4sqrp, some simply
sent their power output (even if a member) and some simple sent
4x4 specifiically. I guess it really doesn't matter. Does 4x4 have a specific
meaning? It was probably in the sheet and I missed it! I'm getting older!!!

I think I need to have a big burger for supper! HI.

72, Uncle Phil
