No no no, don't do that, we won't get an opinion until at least April... (didn't say which April though).

Subject: [4sqrp] Result of survey

 

If you recall, I asked if anyone had strong opinions regarding whether
the SSS is held on the 2nd Sunday of September (in conflict with Brutus)
or the 3rd Sunday (no Brutus conflict). Here are the results of that
informal survey:

The opinions could be grouped into the following two subgroups:

1) Don't let Brutus push you around. Keep the SSS on the 2nd Sunday.

2) It's only one week different. Please move the SSS to the 3rd Sunday.

I counted the ballots (twice) and here are the results:

Number of people wanting to keep the SSS on the 2nd Sunday: 1

Number of people wanting to move the SSS to the 3rd Sunday: 1

This hotly contested survey ended up in a tie! I decided to only count
the votes of those who usually participate in the SSS. The indisputable
winner, using that criterion, is that we should move the SSS to the 3rd
Sunday of September.

So, barring any cries for a recount (hanging chad, etc), the Second
Sunday Sprint will be held on the third Sunday of the month, which is
the 20th. For this month only, consider it the September Sunday Sprint
(SSS), not the Second Sunday Sprint.

My thanks to all (both) of the voters for their participation. I guess
Brutus is just too big to ignore. I let him push the contest into the
following week. I will send my usual reminders during the week of the 13th.

72,

John, AA0VE

Danny,

 

Sorry I lost you in the QSB on 20 Meters this afternoon. You were 559 at peaks. Maybe when band conditions are better, we can have a longer QSO. I was in the parking lot on lunch break, using my KX3 to a Buddistick temporarily mounted on the roof of my Jeep.

 

Take care es CUL,

Re: Seeking retired 4sqrp Kit -- HAM CAN

John Lonigro
 

Ken:

I looked online and I think I can easily fit the hamcan radio in one of their flat rate boxes for $6.00.  I believe the actual ham can will fit as well.  So if you are interested, I can sell you the complete, but not working, ham can radio for $8.00, postage included.

So if you are interested, I'll dust off the radio and get it to you, complete with instructions, once I receive a check.  Otherwise, I might still dust it off but will otherwise put it away for a hamfest some time.

73,

John AA0VE
