Re: Field Day Operation remotely as a group

Ya made me look... 
I was not able to find anything about acronyms (prohibiting or discouraging) in regards to the club name.
Just that it had to spelled exactly the same or it won't get aggregated.
If you can send that info - it would be VERY much appreciated.
Thanks & 73,

Damn, I tried to join in, but had a friend drop by to pick up something and by the time I got back, and had a break from work, things were quiet already.  I thought I heard some slow CW, which would have been awesome.

Working here at 8500 feet is like being in a National Park, lots of clear skies,

i had to change the 1 Watter side tones to 714 Hz to get through the filter.

'NM0S' might look like an obscure call sign to you but NMOS was a

barely enough weight to keep a whip vertical.

Better ck ARRL guidance on name. I believe it specifically states not to use acronyms.

I'll probably be operating Field Day this year. 
It'll be a pretty limited effort from our place near the Lake (near Pryor OK).
My sons (both hams) are both in town and we may go multi op...  may not.
Since the 2020 rules allows for "Club" scores from multiple sites... would anyone else like to use the club-name "4SQRP" in their summary report to ARRL to combine scores for the Four State group?
I don't see that there's any limitation on how distant/close the individual stations have to be to use the individual/combo-group scoring.
If you haven't been aware, the ARRL is also allowing "points" to-from class "D" (home stations using commercial power) for 2020.
So no real requirement to go full blown emergency style operation this year.
I'll probably still go with battery power/solar/QRP.
I'm just not sure if i'll set up an emergency antenna or use the loop that's already in the trees.
In any case, i hope you'll get on for at least a little while and participate in the event.
If can satisfy many modes of operation and needs for states worked, or testing out antennas, etc.
No need to view this as a contest unless you have all those competitive juices flowing.
"IF" we decide "we'd" like to use the combo scoring for our club - all entries must use the same EXACT club name in their individual summary submission.
You still use your own call - and you get a regular individual score as well as contribute to the Club score.
I'd suggest "4SQRP" as the "exact" name.

First Day of Summer!

Larry Makoski
 

It's officially the First Day of Summer, and that means it's time to sign up for your official 2020 NJQRP Skeeter Hunt number. Join in on Sunday, August 16th for fun in one of the more popular QRP Operating Events of the Summer.

All you have to do is send an e-mail to w2ljqrp@..., and you'll receive an answer back with your very own Skeeter number. No, it's not necessary to have one to participate, but it sure adds to the fun!

For all the details about the Sprint - please visit https://www.qsl.net/w2lj/

And to see the Roster for those who have signed up so far, please visit https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1quCECsmE_cgHexgQhpkHeltX2cIlveSqI_tVqK1z0GM/edit?usp=sharing

I'm sure you'll recognize a lot of the names and calls there. This year's bonus qualifier - use a homebrew antenna for an extra 100 bonus points. Not that we have anything against commercial antennas, or their manufacturers - it's just that antenna making is one of the most fun parts of Amateur Radio and just about anyone can cobble up something!

See you all on the air on Sunday, Augyut 16th!

Larry W2LJ - Skeeter # 13
