Good morning all,
It's time for another NCS to step up and run the 40m Wednesday evening net. I am stepping away from this duty, permanently, due largely to personal circumstances. I can't remember how long I've done it for but it's now time for another to shoulder the mantle and continue this excellent evening club activity.
I'd planned that the nets recommence on October 2nd. That's a couple of weeks to sort out another NCS.

Re: FS: The Deluxe Tenna Dipper

David Wilcox K8WPE
 

A real neat item.  I recently pulled my original TennaDipper and Deluxe TennaDipper out of a drawer and showed them to some club members explaining where we had been and come from before all the newer antenna analyzers.  Also showed them a noise bridge and grid dipper........ We didn't know that we were limited back then and our radios still worked well to communicate.  Now we fuss over reactance, swr, resistance vs capacitance, etc., and don't have time to get on and talk. Hi!  We get lost in the maze of Smith charts.

The Deluxe TennaDipper is still a good instrument for antenna tuning.

Congrats Guys!
Glad to hear there is some activity on the bands.
Good to see some new call signs on the log.
Hopefully Winter will bring us some better propagation?

Well, who says the bands were bad last weekend? We had 12 people make
entries for Sunday's SSS and only one of them failed to make any
contacts. We also had three people who entered the contest for the
first time: David (K5IX), Mark (WG8Y), and Ed (WG5F). Welcome to those
three. The winner for September was John (K4BAI) with 25 points. John
was followed by Bill (KV6Z) with 21 points and Chas (NK8O) with 14
points. The overall leader for 2017 is Bill (KV6Z) with 149 points,
followed by John (K4BAI) with 107 and Chas (W2SH) with 106. In fourth
place overall is Gary (KF7WNS) with 95 points. With 3 months to go, I
believe each of these 4 people has a chance of finishing the year in
first place. And, barring a major upset, all but one will get a
certificate (1st, 2nd, or 3rd). This could be an exciting race to the
finish!

John (K4BAI) should expect to receive his September first place
certificate shortly.

Thanks to all who participated in the September SSS.

Until next month, 72 to all.

Hello Chas,

Will there be any nets tonight? I was on 80 meters last night and while the band wasn’t busy, I managed a few QSO with my K2.

If anyone is calling the nets, please let us know the times.

Sorry I forgot to mention that I was referring to 40 mtrs. Yes there has been some propagation on 80 and 20 mtrs.

Suggestion: can the current "4SQRP - Four State QRP" group's description be modified to add the URL of the club's web page?

I expect that the Facebook group might attract some newcomers... seems to me we should inform visitors of the Facebook splash page to visit the web site, where they can learn all about the club, even if they don't click "join".

Same here. Due to circumstances beyond my control this was the first 
time I've ever missed one. I plan to be there next year, though.

"but that to participate you have to agree to Facebook's terms of service and interact with an advertising company"

Sorry folks who feel this way, but what do you think Yahoo is?  Where do you think they make their money?

Yahoo, AOL, and their new owner Verizon could not really give a crap about Yahoo Groups, which has been a neglected platform already.  

I quote Steve Buscemi in Armageddon:  "OK folks, It's time to embrace the horror"

Facebook is far from perfect but very accessible and much more mobile friendly.  Personally though, I'm waiting for that perfect Yahoo Groups alternative. Groups.IO is not it.
