I was on 40m until the 80m net, heard 2 single “CQs” and then silence, kinda like letting the air out of a balloon.  80m here was S8, ESP heard some parts not much else.

Sooner or later we’ll make it from Florida !

40 meters was a wash out. 
No stations heard. 

80 meters started off better, and then my QRM pulse jumped up to S8 and that took care of me hearing anyone else. 
Its a pulse that will jump up to S8 for a period of time, then stop, then come back again. 


Check In's were:
Paul WA9PWP 
and 
Glenn N4MJ. 
I think I heard Chas W2SH trying to get in, but my QRM was over powering him.

Nothing heard on 40m.  On 80m WA9PWP was 569; N4MJ was 559 at best but suffered deep QSB.

ACØBQ was 339.  I dropped my call only twice.  Good ears, Johnny.

Ozarkcon 2020 tidbits

Walter - K5EST
 

Hi All, yes the Ozarkcon Team has been busy with the
details of the greatest venue of QRP fun in mid-America.

The Speakers this year are in line with the last couple of 
years and many are known worldwide for knowledge and
their activity in QRP.

The webmaster will soon be receiving the data to put
the Ozarkcon website into operation. We will need to 
proofread and make a few adjustments, then a notice
of "open for pre-registration" will be sent to the reflector. 
Please allow us just a little more time to get things finalized.

The Stone Castle Hotel is still on winter break but you
can reserve rooms during normal weekday hours by
calling (417) 335-4700 and asking for the 4 State QRP
block of rooms.

More tidbits to follow later.

73,
Walter Dufrain - K5EST - QRPcw

February SSS Winner

John Lonigro
 

The February Second Sunday Sprint results are in. This month's winner is John Laney, K4BAI, with 20 QSO points.  Congratulations, John.  The February scores were quite a bit higher than January's. Last month, 6 points was enough to come in first (out of 9 entries).  This month, 6 points gets you tied for 8th place (out of 12).  The overall winner at this early stage of the contest is Carl WB0CFF, but only by the narrowest of margins, a single point.  In one month, John vaulted from last place (didn't participate in January) to being one point from the lead.

Congratulations to all who participated.  John will receive his certificate shortly.

72,

John, AA0VE
