Date   

Thank you for IC-705!

AG4CC
 

My grand prize arrived late Friday, and I haven’t stopped playing with it. 

Thanks again to the club for providing this fantastic surprise, and to Ron AG1P for the excellent shipping job. 

I will be in the Run for the Bacon tomorrow so look for me on 40m trying to avoid contest and SST activity. If you haven’t tried this Flying Pigs event, or it’s been a while, give it a go. 

73,
Karen AG4CC 


FDIM Updates

nm0s_qrp
 

Many, many things have happened in the past few weeks as FDIM planning wraps up.  With five weeks to go before the May 22 date, it's time for an update!
First of all, we have had very generous donations of door prizes, which will be announced during the break times between presentations.  We also have a GRAND PRIZE that will be drawn at the end of the presentations, an ICOM IC-705! 

Prizes have been donated by Etherkits, FiveDash, NM0S Electronics, Breadboard Radio, 4 State QRP,  HF Signals, 3rd Planet Solar, MFJ, ARRL, and ICOM.  Thanks to all who who have come forward with donations!  Any other businesses or individuals who wish to donate a door prize, please contact me!

We are very gratified to see the number of registrations that have come on already.  We are on track to matching the number of registrations that we would expect on a normal year!  We will close registrations at midnight, CDT on May 15.  The web link to the FDIM presentation will be sent out shortly afterward, along with a .pdf of the Proceedings. Go to http://qrparci.org/fdim to register!

At 7:00 PM CDT, after the speakers' forum, the evening informal Q&A will open.  Here, speakers, vendors, and clubs will have an opportunity to speak briefly, and answer questions.  This event will run as long as we have folks wanting to talk!  I'm going to invite all of our QRP clubs and vendors to make sure they have a representative signed in to participate

I look forward to seeing you all at our FDIM event!

President, QRPARCI

Nice to meet you on the Net Johnny.

 

Good job on pulling my Bayou Jumper signal out of the QSB soup. I’ll have to get used to sending without a sidetone ‘til the Soup’er Upper kit is available.

 

I really enjoy being part of the 4SQRP group – Great bunch!

 

72,

5w on a wire not bad from Florida to Kansas.
