Just wondering,   who is Armour?


Also, in case you wanted to know more,  here is a link to SPAM - 101.  Take note of the SPAM museum

in Austin, MN.   I have been by there, but didn't stop.  Not all that fond of spam. To much salt for my taste.


http://www.spam.com/spam-101


Oh,  and an interesting tidbitty,  4SQRP group member Darwin, W9HZC had a HAM CAN project of his on the JAN 2013 QST mag..  This was not the same circuit that the 4sqrp ham can used.


Counting down the days to OzCon!

Have a good week!

Final reminder for SSS this evening!

John Lonigro
 

This is your final reminder that the SSS is tonight (SUNDAY), from 7:00 - 9:00 pm CST.

Send your results to secondsundaysprint@4sqrp.com and put "Sprint" in the subject line.

Good luck in the contest and 72,

John AA0VE
SSS Coordinator

No wonder it felt so lonely in there - wrong night - what a bonehead.

On the lighter side - I got a new 4S member for the W25 (Bert N0YJ) and another one that needs his number (KE0N).
Between the SSB stations and the SKCC - WES guys running kilowatt stations, 40 was brutal.
Hope it's better tomorrow night for the real SSS. HI !!

Yeah, that is the best plan.  Rex has a great selection of stuff.  And heck, he even carries the Rockmites now that would fit nicely in a spam can.

Maybe a theme for a future sprint, extra points for food can rigs (ham, spam, tuna, etc.)??

Hello Rick, my thoughts exactly on the transceiver in a spam can.....I am wanting to build up a half watt or a 1 watt transceiver on 80 CW with VXO and speaker output.....40 meters or 30 meters is not a problem.....Even 20 meters.....My first thought was the QRP frequency of 10.106 MHZ.....A good VXO will cover the whole 30 meter band.....

Can you do surface mount parts?     I have had too many years of surface mount parts.....Let me rummage around in my library and see if I can come up with 2 or 3 good circuits.....

If the circuit board needs to use thru-hole parts, that is no problem.....Circuit boards will run about $5.00 each and take 4 or 5 days to get in quantities of 10 or more.....If the board are going to be surface mount parts, then I probably have all parts on hand already.....

I in NO way am wanting to compete with the 4sqrp kits, but, this sounds like fun.....Gary...K5QNM.

Yes on Woodpecker, very loud QRM on my thrown up Hillbilly antenna wire just for receiving temporary, though it was my antenna . Enjoy , AJ KF5ZYB - Ozarks


THIS IS SERIOUS: SSS is Tomorrow!

John Lonigro
 

With all the joking going around about people stuck in the Ukraine, I'm adding a slight twist to this month's SSS contest. Anyone who has a QSO with a 4SQRP member actually in the Ukraine during the sprint gets his score doubled! I'll have to think what evidence I'll need before accepting anyone's claim, but an email from the contact, asking for money, does not count.

All joking aside, the Second Sunday Sprint is tomorrow, 7:00 - 9:00 PM CST. Don't forget! If you've misplaced the rules, they are posted on 4SQRP.COM, under "4SQRP On Air Activities". And they are the same as last month's rules.
