Date   
a little portable op today....

neil tanner <wa4chq@...>
 

Every Sunday, I go to visit my elderly parents over on Gwynns Island here in Mathews, Va.  Weather permitting I'll go out on their porch and do a little portable QRP operating.  Antennas will be either a wire up in the old oak tree and tuner, crappie pole supporting a wire and tuner or one of my DIY magnetic-loops....today I opted for the the crappie pole and wire.  Had one QSO 40m with W1PQO Tom in ME also QRP.   The rig was my HB1B running 4 watts and the key is my mini-cootie. 

OzarkCon this year.

Based on the time required to retrieve the oscillators, I must have done a better job of hiding them this year.
The successful hunters were:

John (K0JDL) from Augusta, Kansas
Joe  (K0NEB) from Lincoln, Nebraska

I was able to pry a few of their hunting secrets from these guys but, unfortunately, I am not at liberty to reveal them.

Great job guys!!! Enjoy your $50 gift certificates.

It is almost 10:00 at OzarkCon and I would like to share some of my thoughts of the event so far...
Different aspects of the event have moved along very smoothly.
Stone Castle has spend time and money on repair and improvements and it has not gone unnoticed (by me).
Stone Castle improved the sound system in the conference room and Greatly Improved the listen ability of the presentations.

Hello :)
I would keep it if it were mine !
You are correct
The bayou jumper is a great rig without the souper upper
But it is just a wee bit better with it !
For 20 dollars with shipping
You are actually just paying some one else ti take it !

I have an unbuilt Soup'er Up'er for sale. I decided I'm happy with my Bayou Jumper the way it is (nostalgic and fun) and will not be installing it. Price is $20, which includes priority shipping. Go to www.k4eq.net and click on "For Sale" for info on this and an excellent and loaded K1 I'm also selling. Contact info can also be found on the site.
