Re: Brutus bash - got it booked!

I have used the hayfield, cornfield, the south end of the parking lot, and even a gallon jug - all ok at night :o)  ok ok too much info I know.

"Wish they would leave the door open to the inside facilities"  I think this would allow access to the whole museum so I'm sure they won't do that.

Arnie You're not camping in the Transit this year?

Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Hi Group,

Just got off the phone with the "PTB" at Brutus and have a tent spot
reserved.  $7.50 a night doesn't seem bad. I think it is the same as last year.
 I do hope that they have done something with the outies though..
  Last year a 4 AM trip to the "spider shelter" in the dark with nothing but my 
camp "head light" to see by made me think that the field across the road would
have been a better idea!   Wish they would leave the door open to
the inside facilities... at least at night while the 4sqrp group is camped there!
First time Brutus bash campers be warned! ;P

I was going to stop by there this Friday on the way down to the Joplin
hamfest, but now that I have a spot reserved there is not really a need 
for it.. Although I still might stop by there since I will be traveling with my dad and
I think he might like to spend a few minutes looking at Brutus.  We will see
how time treats us on the way down.. if we are running early we might stop..
My dad is K0SCN, and while he would like to attend the bash,  he's 92 
and would probably not like sleeping out on the ground much:.. so 
this would be a chance for him to see it.

I hope to bring a few items to 'tailgate' again this year.  Not sure what yet...
Maybe a few kits that I have on the "yet to build" shelf should be brought out.
into the light of day for someone who might have a better chance of getting time
to put them together....

I Hope to see a few of the 4sqrp group at Joplin this weekend!

Thanks to you Terry, Dale, and Johnny for your well-wishes.  Also, thank you to Walt for the last 2 years of the Banner.  I just finished re-reading a lot of the back issues, and I only hope I can do as well as Walt did during that time – he left some pretty big shoes to fill!

 

Please everyone, let me know what *YOU* are interested in seeing out of the Banner!  As Terry mentioned, I can be reached for now at jerutley@... – Walt told me he’s planning to pass on the ozarkqrpbanner@... address to me as well, so you can use that too.  Let me know about your latest build projects, that funky antenna that shouldn’t work but does, funny stories, whatever the case may be!  September’s Banner is right around the corner!

 

Thanks again, all!

Yes a big signal.  I took my PFR3 to Blackwater Falls State Park and worked him also from our cabin.  I strung up an OCF dipole and exercised each of the bands on this rig.  Of course we hiked and saw much of this scenic high elevation (by east standards ...) place - and I just did radio in the evenings.CUL Curt

I honestly expected someone else to come out and jump all over taking over the banner!  I thought about volunteering when he first gave it up, but figured there’d be someone more active in the QRP scene than I am who would step forward.  I’d be willing to take it over, Terry!

The Group still needs a NL editor to carry on the tradition started by Walter, K5EST.   Pse someone volunteer, prior exerience isnt required and help and content for articles pictures etc is readily available.  Newsletters are the glue that holds organizations together, and we're so spread out and diversified that we the newsletter plays an  important role for us..  They are appreciated and read by all 800+ members.

Shoot me a note, and Walter and I will help you get started.

Thanks vy much.

Subject: [4sqrp] In Studying Morse Code................

Hey All,

I'm continuing to study Morse Code as a language. I find it an
interesting subject.
My end goal ~ maybe ~ is to improve my sending and reception up to 30
WPM and
be able comprehend rag chew reception at 90%, i.e. understand the
conversation
without writing down what I'm receiving. I'm NOT nearly there by a long
shot so far.
If you are so inclined too and wish to receive my frequent summaries
about what
I've found info wise or what I've found that works for me, email me and
I'll put you on my
outgoing email list on such.

Example: Practicing Receiving Call Signs:

I'm now solid at 20 WPM on 90% of them, decent at 25 but less than 30%
at 30.
Of course, listening on the air - given noise, RST, and quality of the
code from
the other end is not as easy; but we have to start somewhere.
Here's what I've found that works for me so far:

@ 20 WPM (don't practice any slower!), I use a call sign generator
program (NuMorse)
1. First relax; don't hold your breath,
2. Concentrate after the "de" if receiving off the air on the first two
letters that follow,
write them down as you receive them if you wish and then listen for the
number.
3. I write down the number as I'm listing for the last 1, 2 or 3 letters.
4. I then say the full call out loud; and then, look at the screen to
confirm.
5. I practice for 15 to 20 minutes a day most days, receiving a couple
of pages of them.
6. It was tough at first but came along faster than I thought it would.
7. Some other technique might work better for you.................

When receiving on the air signals, it is clear that different skills are
required for different
parts of the QSO: callsigns, RST numbers, abbreviations (e.g. QTH etc),
names, and common
exchanges (like WX, RIG, ANT). As such, I've found that it helps to
drill on each of these types.
For example, drill on sets of numbers, sets of common QSO words, etc.
I've published
the top 100 common words on the resources page at www.4qrp.com.

I found it really helped me on rig names to listen to the names for the
top six brands using
my NuMorse program using a text file. Example. KNWD, YEASU, ICOM, RX3, ETC.
I practice these names at random at 30 to 40 words per minute. I listen
for the whole
word and then say it. Same for antenna names: dipole, yagi, etc.

A big part of reception is preparation. For example if you are working a
contest,
read up on the exchange ahead of time, perhaps at:
http://www.hornucopia.com/contestcal/weeklycont.php
and practice a bit with it. I find it easier then
since I know what to expect, example. 55N, GA, NR 0012.

Accurate anticipation really makes the reception easier!

More detail next time.

Unc Phil, W0XI

PS: English is much worse:
How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same,
while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?
You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language
in which your house can burn up as it burns down,
in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which,
an alarm goes off by going on.
