OK, here are more details............

Everyone plays... Outdoors, Indoors, QRP or higher power, CW, SSB, even DIGITAL!.. There is even QRO!


Sponsored by the North Georgia QRP Club (nogaqrp.org), this sprint will be held on Oct. 6, 2018 from 6PM to 8PM EDT, (Oct.6, 2018 - 2200z to 2359z).

Your QSO will be worth more if you have a Peanut number;  You now keep the same number each year..
To check to see what your number is, go to: https://tinyurl.com/y5xws6xu

This short sprint is different from most other QRP QSO events.

1. It is open to all amateurs at any power level. We do this to attract some new folks to QRP while running their comfortable power - QRO (<= 100 watts pls). All are welcome. This is a fun event, not cut-throat!

2. It is a short sprint lasting only 2 hours and not tying up the entire afternoon. Although a brief sprint, please run reasonable CW speeds so that all can copy.

3. It starts late in the day (right after close of CA QSO party!) which means we start at 3PM PDT, later than most contests.

4. There are 5 categories covering a variety of situations - the prestigious category in the Peanut Power 1W CW, 2W PEP SSB or less and operating from the field....it's the GOOBER CLASS! SOTA/POTA anyone?

5. Certificates will be awarded for each of 5 category winners (minimum 3 entries per category).
   
6. Sprint encourages SSB as well as CW contacts. The exchange: RS(T), State/Province/Country (S/P/C), and your Peanut Number or Power.  Call CQ NUT and have FUN!

7. Multipliers count each band/mode. Work GA (or any other S/P/C) on 3 bands and 2 modes (SSB and CW/DIGITAL) = 6 multiplier.  Puts emphasis on switching bands and modes during the event. Check SSB on the quarter hour.

8. We encourage activity on all 3 permitted bands - 80M, 40M, and 20M. CW: 3561 khz, 7061 khz, 14061 khz SSB: 3999 LSB khz, 7999 LSB khz, and 14339 USB khz.  Spread out from those frequencies.

9. Logs are not submitted - simply a score - but keep your log, in case it's requested for verification. Watch the NoGaQrP (nogaqrp.org) website for results. There is an online score calculator. It's all on the website - http://nogaqrp.org/PeanutPower/ppsscore.php

10. Work stations holding a Peanut Power Number (PPN) for 7 points. Stations worked not having a PPN (they will send power instead) yield 3 points. Yes, QRO stations may request a PPN. Remember, you do not declare a category until you decide to send in your entry. If you get halfway through and change your power, simply enter in a different category than you originally thought..

Peanut numbers are now permanent.  Don't know or remember your number?
  See https://tinyurl.com/ybwarlh5  If you have requested a new number this year, this page will be updated before Sunday, Oct. 6

To request your PPN, send an email to NoGaNuT Pete at kj4ym@...    Requests for special numbers may no longer be accommodated. Remember to include the phrase - "PEANUT POWER NUMBER" in the subject line of your request.  But even without a number, get on and make some contacts, just send your output power followed by a W.

Dang, those goobers are tasting great! http://tinyurl.com/olkg4za

A Siglent SVA 1015X Spectrum & Vector Network Analyzer image
sent to me by Ken, WA4MNT, shows that the second harmonic
is down more than 50dB from the fundamental.

This has got to be much better than the other kits that

Re: Peanut Power RULES! Oct. 6

Found out the links I sent out for the PPS were not up to date, so try these:

BY CALL

BY NUMBER

Check the BY CALL first to see if you have a number already (you use the
same number as last year).  Then if  not, ask kj4ym@...
for a new one. 

Hope these links work.

Happy Peanutting,

Way too funny !  Hope the paddle wasn’t hurt.  At least you got to WCF at an S8.

I am always reluctant to throw out my Call when there’s a Net as it’s not good etiquette so I just listen for the QNI, hearing none I stand by.

73,

John


If you need a parachute and don't have one you probably won't need one again.

I bet those random S8 dits may have come from me. Here in St. Louis, I never heard Johnny. However I copied W2SH (NJ) strong as ever. When I heard Chas' transmission, I shuffled some papers on my desk and dropped a pile on my paddles (oops), unleashing a short string of dits. So that was probably what you were hearing.

I also heard WB1GYZ in CT, but it must have been in QSO with someone right after the net.

I made my cricket so that I can use any crystal :) And other nonsensical folly :)

Frank Artieta
 

Hello :)
I now have SIP sockets installed on all my crickets
I am sure there are lots of options as far as sockets for crystals !
I do not like the new DIP socket !
I likely do not understand How to make the DIP sock work properly ?
I think I would bend up my little crystals !
I adapted a FT43 socket to plug into the SIP
Or I can plug the little crystals into the SIP socket quite easily
Now I can use all my crystals !
I often think maybe I ought to choose what I think is the best frequency
ans solder the crystal in permanently !
After all :) A huge part of fun from a lot of my QRP comes from the fact that I am rockbound !
I think maybe a problem with QRP operation is that maybe we're spread out too wide across the Bands
I mean of course  QRP operators who would like to work other QRP operators :)
Like a cricket to cricket :)
On 80 meters I think I will stay on the colorburst frequency 3.579
On 40 I think it will be 7.122 !
I do not have any QRP gear that works 30
I think I might wait to see if we get out of this deep ditch before I become infatuated with 30 meters :)
Anyhow :)
A a specific frequency and time would work wonders for QRP to QRP contacts :)
I yesterday reinstalled my antenna !
It is a 135 foot dipole fed by 450 ohm line
I surly hope conditions improve as we start moving forward towards winter !
72 73 88 and I know no more :)
