No radio tonight at all Johnny, except DMR.  I am in the hotel and it has been storming all day.  I didn’t brave an antenna.  I might not be welcome back if I blow out a window with a lightning strike!

We have another round of thunder storms approaching from the SW again tonight.

The 3rd or 4th night this week!

I doubt they will pass over in time for the Net.

By chance they do, I will post again on the reflector.

If your in the clear and want to give NCS a shot, go for it!

Thanks Jim. I have it right in the log - just not on the e-mail! Good thing my ears are better than my eyes!

Well the 80 meter net was something of a surprise. I had a lull in the storms and after hearing Bill KV6Z so well on 40, I thought I would give NCS a try on 80. I must admit though the QRN was vicious.

Checkins:

WD0WF - Jim, MO
KV6Z - Bill, OK
WB0CFF - Carl, MN

Gangue,

The FDIM Buildathon project has pretty much been put to bed. I have prototype kits and O*Scopes in the hands of the volunteers and we have been talking over the build and challenges of the Buildathon. All currently available information is up on the Buildathon page: <http://www.qrpme.com/?p=product&id=F19>

If you are registered for, picking up or simply interested in the Buildathon project, you should go to the web page and check out the documentation. For the registered builders, you should wait until just before FDIM and print out the very latest in documentation before you head off to Fairborn. I expect there might be some last minute Buildathon instructions posted as we develop a strategy to get everybody out of the Buildathon in a decent time frame. I don't want to be helping builders finish their builds at midnight! It is an ambitious build as I always try to present a unique, playful yet very useful kit for the Buildathon.

The $50 price tag is a little steeper than usual, but then again, everyone will be heading home with the pretty neat (if I say so myself) O*Scope FUN kit AND a pretty nice, fully assembled eminently portable oscilloscope from Circuit Specialists! They sell the scope alone for $40 in their catalog! I bought one from them at the Rocky Mountain Division Convention last year. On my way home from ABQ, I dropped into Point Texas to visit my friend Chuck, W5USJ, and he loved it. He already had one of the stripped down models from some China seller that didn't come assembled in a really nice case and had a wacky probe with j-hook ends. The CS model comes fully assembled in a really nice case and had a real live scope probe! So I gave mine to him to play with and perform comparisons. I think it was a clear winner as it is his preferred toy now.

Here is the link to the O*scope: <https://www.circuitspecialists.com/dso150_shell_oscilloscope.html>

I just checked and they are currently out of stock until after FDIM. I made a special deal with them for the units included in the Buildathon so I could include them in the Buildathon package and still offer an incredible price for the Buildathon. We have a full room of builders and a waiting/pickup list of 11 Qrpers! There is no room at the inn, so to speak, but I will have some Buildathon kit/scope bundles to sell at vendor night and over in the fleamarket..... My supply of scopes  is NOT unlimited; however, so if you think you might want to pick up one at vendor night you might be able to pick one up....... If you definitely want one, you might want to buy it now! I already have 11 reserved and counting. I will shut the web page off when I run out of scopes. I will create a new page for just the Buildathon kit pretty soon and while the price will be reasonable, it will NOT be anything close to the deal right now!!

GE Everyone,

 

Just a reminder that you only have 10 more days to submit logos for the contest. Some have already arrived and we thank those generous people for submitting them!

Subject: [4SQRP] ANNOUNCEMENT - THE GREAT 4SQRP LOGO CONTEST

 

GE Everyone,

 

Four State QRP Group has launched a new educational initiative - 4SQRP 4 Kids.  We would like to have a custom logo to use with the program, one that will signify that an education program is a legitimate 4SQRP sanctioned event.  In order to maximize the funding for OzarkCon and this kids program, we thought we would have a contest among our members to come up with an awesome design rather than engaging commercial artists.

 

Here are the rules.  A member or someone in his/her immediate family may submit one or multiple logos. By looking at the logo, it should be evident that it represents a children’s program sanctioned by 4SQRP.  Deadline for submitting entries is 2359 hrs on May 15th.  Submissions can be made by email  to me at  ag1p@... or mailed to:

 

Four State QRP Group

Logo Contest

PO Box 478

Waldport, OR 97394

 

Winner must be willing to transfer ownership to us so the logo can be trademarked to protect our kids program.  The winning entry will receive their choice of a 4SQRP Hilltopper 20 or Hilltopper 40 transceiver, plus a matching 4S-Tuner (Pun intended).  The decision of the panel of judges is final and the winning entry will be announced by June 1st.

 

Any questions should be directed to me at my email address above.
