I gotta ask, how does one search the Group's yahoo messages for a specific
topic, e.g. the word "sprint" ?

Hi Terry

I thought that I'd provide come contacts (as opposed to actually entering the sprint) but you were the only contact that I was able to make.

OT: For Sale, Vibroplex "Champion" Bug

Jim Sheldon
 

Paring down my collection just a bit -- On the block is a nice Vibroplex "Champion" model, vintage 1962 in good operating condition with an extra weight to slow it down some.  Base is grey crackle finish and there is a bit of rust on the screws that hold the rubber feet on and on the base under the feet.  I've cleaned it as well as possible with mineral spirits.  Owing to it's age, there are a few bits of the crackle finish that are missing or showing wear and some blemishes in the chrome plating.  This is totally normal on one that's this old.  I've had it on the air and it runs just fine.
 
I'm going to list this on the Elecraft and Flying Pigs reflectors as well so if anyone is interested in it let me know soonest.  Off the list to keep the clutter down please.
 
I'm asking $100 plus shipping (USPS Priority Flat Rate with insurance will run around $12.50 if I remember right).  Cash, USPS Money Order or PayPal (Gift or add 5%).
 
First "I'll take it" (by date/time on the email) gets right of first refusal.  Pictures available on request.

OT: Retracting the Vibroplex "Deluxe Original" bug for sale ad.

Jim Sheldon
 

Just got done cleaning this key up and it cleaned up WAY too pretty not to keep.  I've decided to keep it and sell one of my older, "plane Jane" models instead.  Going to list that one for sale in a separate email a bit later.
 
Sorry for getting somebody's hopes up.

nvis antenna did better than vertical on sprint 4x4

Phil Anderson
 

Hey Bart,

I forgot to mention that the noise here was less on my home-brew NVIS dipole
than on the expensive SteppIR 33 foot vertical fir 7122. Hm. May switch to the alternative
currency that guys are using on the web now.

unc Phil.


Re: WQ5RP #30

Phil Anderson
 

Hey Bart, looking at my log I worked both you and Terry. Fun huh.
So I worked 4SQRP # 30!!!!! Does that count toward another W25 along
with WA0ITP already worked? Ha!

By the way, I noticed that there was confussion on what message
to send on each sprint qso. The download I read said to send
"RST, SPC, and 4X4?" RST, of course is aok. I found the definition
for SPC lower on the downloaded instructions and used KS as you did.
But what the heck is 4x4? Some were senting their NR # for 4sqrp, some simply
sent their power output (even if a member) and some simple sent
4x4 specifiically. I guess it really doesn't matter. Does 4x4 have a specific
meaning? It was probably in the sheet and I missed it! I'm getting older!!!

I think I need to have a big burger for supper! HI.

72, Uncle Phil

4SqrpGroup #30!!!!!



What a hoot!!!

W0IIT
 

Hi all,

Yes, it was a hoot to work Johnny AC0BQ, Phil W0XI, Terry WA0ITP using the club call, and Dave W0CH on 7.122 in less time than it takes to write about it!! Lots of fun but man condx were TUFF here in the Pitts. A thunder boomer had just passed and I was still listening to it when the sprint closed down. Didn't work many Q's but had a blast.

By the first Saturday in Nov. thunderstorm should be rare:-)

OT: 1969 Vibroplex Original Deluxe for sale

Jim Sheldon
 

I have a 1969 Chrome base Vibroplex "Deluxe Original" model Serial# 260100 for sale.  This key has the black knob and thumb piece and was made as a "Radio" bug as it doesn't have the telegrapher's "Circuit Closer" switch.
 
This key shows only minor wear from use and is in nice condition.   Asking $175 shipped and insured.  I will also follow Vibroplex's instructions to remove and wrap the lever arm separately so it doesn't get damaged in shipment.  I will email pictures on request.
 
Cash, USPS Money Order or PayPal accepted (PayPal gift or add 5%)
 
Offering it here first and if no interest, I'll list it on the Elecraft reflector Monday.
 
Please contact me off the list if you are interested

I will be mobile for the first two hours. Pointed west for the first hour and then (bummer) pointed back east for the return trip.
I'll be running the IC-703 to a homebrew Hustler type antenna and exercising a "new to me and my stables" straight key on a leg strap. It's all interstate driving so I should be fairly active.
 
Hope to work a bunch of you.

....4 State 4x4 QRP Sprint....

....(4hours/best4bands)....

Date: October 5, 2013 (1700 to 2100 UTC)

Bands: 160, 80, 40, 20, 15, 10m

Stations are asked to call: CQ 4s de ______.

A simple exchange:

4sqrp members send: RST, SPC, 4x4

non 4sqrp stations send: RST, SPC, power

(working a station not in the QRP Sprint

requires you to get the station's RST, SPC,

and their power for your log)

(SPC = State/Province/Country)

Sprint rules:

1)Maximum power is 5 watts.

2)each contact is 4 points.

3)each 4sqrp contact = (4x4) = 16 points

4)turn in your best 4 bands of contacts - 1 contact

with a station per band.(a station may be worked

only once per band, the mode is your choice)

5)field stations add 444 bonus points to your total.

6)frequencies: on or about the normal QRP

frequencies for each band and mode, WARC bands are

not to be used for this Sprint.

7)Only 1 transmitter per callsign at a time, no multiple

operators using the same callsign.

8)A Cyclone-40 transceiver contact is 444 points per

QSO for each station. Cyclone-40 station must disclose

the use of the transceiver to allow stations a

chance at the bonus points. Cyclone-40 CONTACTS DO NOT

COUNT AGAINST THE 1 CONTACT PER BAND. This is a bonus

of QRP using a 4SQRP kit.

More info:

4X4 Sprint -
An Outdoor Operating Event on the 1st Saturday in October from 1700 to 2100 UTC.
