Way to go Doc!! You're getting a great run at it...
keep it up.
sometimes listening to a contest will help too..
sometimes jumping into a few will help too..
you already have a good idea what to expect.. and
if you miss it the first time.. all you have to send is a "?"..

Way to go.. you're well on the way now!!

Have a great day,

This may be something that is well known, but was new to me:  In learning to use Morse, I decided to augment Just Learn Morse by finding and listening to slow code nets.  As I listened, found that I could copy some simple words and I started writing them down.  Sometimes I could figure a whole transmission because the mising letters or even whole words could filled by the context of the sentence of message...I found I could literaly "fill in the gaps."

NAQCC mW Sprint

Gary KF7WNS
 

Worked the NAQCC mW Sprint last night.  What fun, but not for the faint of heart.  It's a grueling two hour test of patience and stamina.  Also takes a good imagination to fill in the dits lost to QSB.  W2SH/Charles you had a great signal here in Oregon for about five seconds.

June SSS Results

John Lonigro
 

This is a new low for the SSS. Two people sent in scores and three people had soapbox comments. The storms won this month, although WD9F Woody's three QSO performance catapulted him in the standings to number 7. KV6Z Bill increased his lead over Terry by snagging one QSO. And W2SH Chas at least gave it the old college try. I'm sure others did as well. As we all know, it's not nice (or wise) to fool with Mother Nature.

Before the July SSS, someone needs to send some burnt offerings to Thor (we are getting desperate here).

Hope everyone stays safe and dry. Please avoid flooded roads, unless you are in a boat.

Skeeter numbers issued starting Sunday

Larry Makoski <w2lj@...>
 

To all QRPers!

The 4th Annual NJQRP Skeeter Hunt will be held on Sunday, August 9th. In keeping with tradition, Skeeter numbers will begin to be issued on the First Day of Summer, which is this coming Sunday, June 21st.

You don't have to wait until Sunday to send in your request! Just send an e-mail to w2lj@..., to request a number, along with your name, call and the state you will be operating from. Whenever you make your request, from now until August 8th, you'll receive a confirming e-mail, along with your Skeeter number.

All the details for this soon-to-be Summer classic, can be found at www.qsl.net/w2lj

There are a few minor rule changes this year and they are detailed at the Website. And remember, the NJQRP Skeeter Hunt is an SSB friendly event - there is a SSB category and even a mixed category for those who would like to give their microphones a workout.

Hope to see your e-mail in my inbox!

Kinda tough on 80M tonight, lotsa static crashes and qsb.  I gave everyone a 579 because they had to be that strong for me to hear them over the noise.  Many thanks to Bill, Paul, and Darryl for making it in tonight.  The A index is currently at 14 and headed down ( I hope).  40M shouild be much better tmrrw morning,  cu there.



Thanks gents.
