Walt; you need to re-read my post/suggestion!!!!
 
I am NOT proposing we get a QRP entry in to the WRTC - Sean Kutzow, the originator of this idea, suggested we set up a WRTC-like event --- read my post again...it 'splains my/Sean's initial thoughts on how to get it going!

From what the World Radiosport Team website reads, we
have passed the Qualifying time limit, which ended March 2013.

The station requirements are from the "Hell NO" section of
my little mind. Read them for yourself....

If someone wants to take this on for 2014, I say go for it, but
it very well could be 4 more years until the next event that we
could be qualifiers.

Thoughts on a QRP WRTC-type event?

What if we came up with a simple set of rules, found a common place to operate
this "event" and invited 12-15 QRP ops, on a first-time basis, who would be
interested in trying it out as a concept?

NAQP CW this year is the first weekend of August (3-4). If we found a couple
campgrounds in some centrally-located place (Kansas, MO, someplace else?) with
similar terrain, came up with some rules and conditions of oversight, would it
be worth trying just once to see how it goes?

Some of the "rules"???:
- 5 watts max power as measured from coax output of rig.
- 150' of wire for antenna, 3 antenna supports max. Do with it what
you will.
- Computer logging/sending of CW permitted. No internet spotting
assistance.
- Would feedline count as part of the wire limit? If so, how do we
address those who want open-wire
vs coax feedline?
- Teams or singular participants?
- find a fairly large locale where the entrants could be provided
sufficient space to set up their
antenna(s) and operate - get some "support" from manufacturers in the
form of providing tents,
portable power, food, potties, etc.? The participants, for the first
year, would bring their own rigs,
I'm guessing..
- In preparation for future events and as the initial event unfolds, have
some savvy people watching
and observing so that future rules on operating oversight/inspection
during the event could be
documented?!?!
- Look at obtaining sponsorship from equipment sponsors?!?!?!

If this is going to happen, it will need to start coming together very soon.

QRP ARCI said they'd be interested, "after some of the details had been hammered
out,"
Sean Kutzow from ARRL thinks it's a great idea but he's busy back "at HQ" so he's
asking me to run with it

Re: Late 40m net

Sam Neal
 

Hello,

You are not the first and you won't be the last! hi

After happily acquiring a Nye-Viking KW antenna tuner several years ago, I used it with a full sized 80 meter extended double Zepp, 330 or so feet, fed with 450 Ohm ladder line. It attracted lots ( and lots and lots and lots - ect ) of static electricity, so, until I could attach an antenna grounding switch, I layed a screwdriver under one output post and over the other and then grounded one side or the other of the output. Definately not lightening protection, but you didn't hear those frightening sparks inside the tuner when a T-storm was nearby.

I went to the shack and proceeded to work some HF DX but noticed the tuner loading had changed, but they still came back, usually first call. Later I found I had forgot to remove the screwdriver and unground the output.

73,

Sam Neal  N5AF

Re: Proposed New RadioSport Event

Dale Putnam
 

This looks like a great fun event, one that just might put QRP in the forefront.
I can hear the comparisons being made already with the difference in scores, antennas, siting...
one note on siting............... maybe we would like to have a bit more separation between stations?
Even low power, when close, can be negative to the other contestants... kinda like Field Day with a
lot of tx on the air.
Wouldn't need to be a lot of distance.. but a bit of a spread would be nice.
Kansas has some wonderful locations, some are in nature reserves.. and national parks.
Or the right time of year, and a visit to "Big Brutus" might work?
 
If I were limited to two antennas... I would choose a vertical and a dipole.... just thinkin out loud.
 
Some clubs that may be interested in pitchin in... might be the same ones that stand up to the larger hamfests?
They are accustomed to making BIG things happen... and this.. could turn HUGE.
 
just thinkin....

Have a great day,

Hey, not to worry Wayne,
Twice I've worked somebody on my dummy load. Once was embarrassing. I was practicing with a new bug sending from a NC Wildlife Magazine. A gentleman finally managed to get my attention and told me I was 579 in VA and wanted to know if this was a NC Wildlife bulletin....
Another was Bert,W5ZR. He told me I was "down a bit".
I'll listen louder next week..... ;-)

Hi Johnny,
 
I think the absorption level was so high that my signal wasn't travelling very far. My first clue was that my noise level was S1-S2. It's never that low when the band is better. I heard very few sigs in the CW segment and it was vry quiet all over 80M tonight.
 
Hopefully it will be better next week.

Man 80 was really poor tonight. I dont think anyone heard me calling CQ for the
first 15 minutes. I was abpout to turn thye rig off and heard Scotty, NU0S, in
Lincoln calling me. He was in the clear, abt 579 and sounding good. Thank you
Scotty. A few more CQ and I shut it down.

At net time the A index was 12 !!! No wonder the band was dead.

Thanks to all who listened for me, we had a lesson in propagation tonight. Glad
to see that Wayne had some 40M checkins.

cu next week, I hope.
