Re: Wednesday evening 40m nets

Wayne Dillon
 

Good morning AJ,
You're going to find this hard to believe (I find it hard to believe sometimes!) but the antenna is a Half-Size G5RV mounted along the ridge-line of the roof, actually inside the attic! Since my big outdoor antenna came down in late December/early January I was forced into a compromise - So up went the 1/2 size G5RV and on I went. From my experience so far it's working and working well it seems. The antenna is orientated North-South and puts a fairly good signal into Europe on 20m.
In the interests of full disclosure, I was running just shy of 1 watt last night, so I was pretty pleased with the results. Noise on the band last night was horrific around me but we made it. Thanks for hanging in there, great contact.
72/3 es God Bless de Wayne - KC0PMH

Second Sunday Sprint

John Lonigro
 

This coming Sunday is the 2nd Sunday of the month, which means it's time for the SECOND SUNDAY SPRINT (SSS). This month's sprint falls on Mother's Day, which may create a conflict for some. If you can't work around the celebration, please remember to keep your priorities straight! Your mother/XYL will understand (hi).

Here are the details, which should be familiar to all by now:

Date/time: Sunday, 11 May, 2014, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm CDT (0000 - 0200Z Monday).
Bands: 160M through 10M, no WARC bands or 60M.
Frequencies: The usual QRP watering holes - don't forget 7122 kHz and 3564 kHz.
Power: 5 Watts maximum.
Mode: CW or sideband.
Exchange: RST, SPC, and member number (members) or RST, SPC, power (non-members).
Calling CQ: "CQ 4S" recommended.

Note: Contacts with the same station on different bands are allowed. In case there is any sideband activity, the sideband and CW portions of the same band count as two separate bands.

Reporting:
Add up your QSOs for each band/mode and send them to me. I'm requesting one additional piece of data: your QTH. It is interesting to see how widespread participation is in this sprint. Note: QTH (other than SPC) is not required for your exchange (not prohibited either). Just include YOUR QTH in your report.

With that in mind, a typical report would be:

Name: Fido
Call: K9MUT
QTH: Branson, MO
4SQRP number: 5280
Results:
40M CW: 2 QSOs
40M SSB: 1 QSO
80M CW: 1 QSO
80M SSB: 1 QSO
Total: 5 QSOs

You do not need to list the stations contacted. But if you make an exotic contact, you might as well brag about it in an optional bragging section at the bottom of your submittal. I'll include comments when I report the scores (no extra credit).

When you've totaled your score, please send it to: secondsundaysprint@4sqrp.com. Put "Sprint" in the subject line. Please avoid "replying" to one of my emails. The sprint results go to a separate mailbox. Send the results before Wednesday (between 9:00 Sunday night and midnight Tuesday night). I'll tally everything and publish them on this reflector as soon as possible, probably Wednesday morning. I suggest you send them in shortly after 9:00 pm Sunday so you don't forget. If you see a mistake or omission when I publish the results, let me know and I'll fix it.

Please keep this email until after you've submitted your score for Sunday. Remember, the person with the most SSS contacts between November, 2013 and September, 2014 will be allowed to use the club's callsign, WQ5RP, for the 4X4 sprint in October, 2014.

BONUS, THIS MONTH ONLY!!!!
If you happen to be a MOTHER (and a radio amateur), I will DOUBLE your May score. Unfortunately, I noticed that Father's Day is on the 3rd Sunday of June, so there will be no similar bonus next month (sorry).

The SSS rules are posted on the 4SQRP website, under "4SQRP On Air Activities", just in case you deleted this email.

72 and good luck in the contest,

John AA0VE
SSS Coordinator
