Thanks everyone on the Banner compliments. It's our club/group newsletter or nearly a magazine but it's fun and we have lots of great authors willing to share their projects! QRP, is real Ham radio!

I'm looking forward to putting faces to callsigns at OzarkCon!

Hi George,

Listening to you on 40 meters this morning in QSO with W8QP.
I tried to call you first but couldn't figure out which signal was your findamental
as you are radiating on the whole band 1.2khz apart.
Thought you might want to know about it before an OO sights in on you.
