Ozarkcon 2019

Walter - K5EST
 

Thank you everyone for making this year's Ozarkcon the absolute very best. The speakers were so impressed at the attention of the audience and participation of questions.

There are some very wonderful seasoned QRPers that could not attend this year and hopefully next year we will see them as they recover from illness and surgeries. 

I am mailing out some 4SQRP kits tomorrow then turning into a couch potato for a day or two   LOL.

The volunteers that make the Ozarkcon event a shining Star are super workers and I am honored to have been a part of the group!

winner for the year.  That, plus composing a monthly email to the club
with the results, is pretty much all I do.  Oh, and I also try to
kickstart the standard time vs daylight saving time controversy about
twice a year (hi).

Thanks again and don't forget the contest a week from today.

Thanks to all who made this a very pleasant OzarkCon. Arrived home safely and now I'm going to relax for the rest of the evening - unpack everything in the morning - LOL.

I forgot to mention that Ozarkcon was again a great experience for me.  While Walter K5EST spearheaded the event, I know there were countless others who helped make the event a success.  Thanks to all.

Re: Hidden Oscillators Were Found

Hi Jim.

The smaller one was in a book on the bookshelf in the Building 1 second floor common area (across from the elevators). Remember in Junior High School when you cut out the insides of a book to hide that transistor radio? - same method.

The larger one was placed in a fake rock and placed on the far side of the back parking lot. I covered the wire with pine needles and I'm told that it was stepped on twice. (The act of stepping on it changed the signal strength and that's what gave it away.) Dang it - I wasn't going to give away any hunting secrets!

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.

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.

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.
