Michigan QRP Club's Annual Contest Tonight

w2sh@...
 

I don't recall having seen an alerting message posted here by what is probably the oldest U.S. State QRP Club.

A four-hour sprint, it begins fairly soon, at 2300Z today running until 0300Z tomorrow.

Viz. http://www.miqrp.org/contest.html for particulars.

There is also the ARS Spartan Sprint running from 0100Z-0300z this evening.

Change of plans here.  Got a reservation in the Budget Inn Columbus for Friday night.  Will be at Brutus around 9 a.m. Friday, stay in Columbus Friday night and go home Saturday evening.  Bringing at least one case (8) and maybe a half case more of 9 amp hour batteries (these are almost new, having been pulled from an X-ray machine that had to be scrapped shortly after they were installed.  All tested good and will be fully charged when I get there.  $10 each or 2/$15 or what'cha got to trade?  I'm open to just about any kind of deal if cash isn't an option - This is, after all, supposed to be a fun hobby - LOL

Hope everyone is planning to bring some items to show, tell, or sell.  I'm going to have some Heathkit stuff, including 2 HW-16's and a matching HG-10 VFO.  All are in working order altho I haven't tried one of the 16's myself.  The VFO and one of the 16's have been verified as working and I have many QSO's on the 16, which  was purchased from Nick Kennedy, WA5BDU, at Ocon 2013.  I can hook them up if you want to try them out.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again this year. 
Hope this note gets thru Yahoo's filters.

Re: Bulders list on Four State Website

Rich Fowler <k8meg@...>
 

Thanks Larry, I think Bob might help out in this case. The two live reasonably close and it will probably work out.

However, Website builder listing could use a couple more volunteers. Some of those listed have slowed down for one reason or another. Red light or Yellow light. Send an email to Dave Martin or volunteer on the reflector.

Four State is a pretty tight group so posting on this Yahoo reflector works!

I don't remember who is doing the website, but I would like my name removed from the Builder List. I have several uncompleted kits that I'm having trouble completing. I'm having some vision problems right now and small items become a blur. Magnification helps but just lost the motivation to build that I used to have.

If you would like to build an SS-40 and SS-40HT for a fellow Four Stater, please send me an email and I'll put you in touch with the fellow with the need for a builder.

I should be pulling in sometime Friday afternoon, assuming no major problems on the way home from Washington.  Do not know if I will be bringing the KX3 or not,depends on when I get back.  Am bringing about 30 brats from the meat market in Iola for Johnny to cook Saturday night.  See y'all there!

Jeremy, NQ0M/7 (at least for now).

Hi Terry,

Planning on getting down there Thursday evening, if weather looks promising.  Supposed
to be rainy here most of the first part of the week.  If its crummy yet, I may wait til Friday...

Not sure what I am going to bring along.  Might try to tailgate flea Mkt. a few items, but not sure which yet.
 I have an IC-703+ that I might bring along, an Elecraft K2-10 with SSB, Audio filters, internal tuner.  Might bring a KX1 - 4 bands, with internal  tuner and paddles, or some other odds and ends.  

I had to send my K3s in to have a thermal problem corrected and it will not be back home 
in time to bring it along.  It supposed to show up sometime  Friday!   Gaaah!  Most likely 
it would be late in the afternoon.  
It would have been fun to see how well it could hear in a low noise area with a couple
of antennas running diversity RX.

Hi Group,


I am looking forward to the Brutus bash this year, and its drawing close!  


Was out in the warm weather yesterday getting the van ready and a few other

things done that needed doing.


I have reservations made for Thursday night thru Saturday night.   I  may

not get there until Friday  night, depending on some things going on.


Wondering if we could have a roll call of who is going to make it, when you plan to

arrive, ect. 


Hope to see a large turn out, and some new faces!
