https://www.qsl.net/wb5ude/kc6wdk/transmitter.htmlThis one peaked does 500mw,  after you time it measure capacitance and put a fixed cap in it, a simple attenuator would knock it down to your specs.

Good nets.
  It was nice to catch Terry WA0ITP before the 80 meter net.
  FYI here is my “QRP station” that I check in with. The HB-1B with my N3ZN  “ZN QRP” paddle. For a better look at that key, go to n3znkeys.com and put my call sign in the search box at the top of the page.

Peanut Power Sprint this Sunday - Oct. 4

Jim Stafford W4QO
 

The Bees have swarmed and the Skeeters are frozen. Now it's - The Peanut Power Sprint!

Everyone plays... Outdoors, Indoors, lo/hi power... There is even a QRO category.  https://www.contestcalendar.com/weeklycont.php?mode=custom&week=next#10776  for a quick summary ….. except one slight change this year: it’s 80, 40, 20.

Sponsored by the North Georgia QRP Club (NoGaQrP), this sprint will be held on Oct. 4 from 6PM to 7:59PM EDT,  Full rules are on the NoGaQrP website -  http://www.nogaqrp.org/PeanutPower/rules.pdf

 

Your QSO will be worth more if you have a Peanut number; if you have one from previous years, use it.  Or request a new one from KJ4YM@... or pete@...

The club is making this one different from most other QRP QSO events. Note: SSB!

 

1. It is open to all amateurs at any power level. We do this to attract some new folks to QRP while running their comfortable power - QRO (<= 100 watts pls). All are welcome. This is a fun event, not cut-throat!


2. It is a short sprint lasting only 2 hours and not tying up the entire afternoon. Although a brief sprint, please run reasonable CW speeds so that all can copy.

3. It starts late in the day (right after close of CA QSO party!) which means we start at 3PM PDT, later than most contests.

 

4. There are categories for all situations - the prestigious category in the Peanut Power 

category - 1W CW, 2W PEP SSB or less and operating from the field is the GOOBER CLASS! SOTA anyone?

 

5. Certificates will be awarded for each of 5 category winners (minimum 3 entries).

   

6. Sprint encourages SSB as well as CW contacts. The exchange: RS(T), State/ Province/Country (S/P/C), and your Peanut Number or Power.  Call CQ NUT and have FUN!


7. Multipliers count each band/mode. Work GA (or any S/P/C) on 3 bands and 2 modes = 6 multiplier. Puts emphasis on switching bands and modes during the event. Check SSB on the quarter hour.

8. This will encourage activity on the 3 permitted bands – 80M, 40M, 20M. See the rules for the suggested frequencies for each band/mode. Notice we are encouraging the now almost dead portion of 40M - 7061 kHz and up.

 

9. Logs are not submitted -simply a score - but keep your log in case it's requested for verification. Watch the NoGaQrP website for results. There is an online score calculator. It's all on the website - http://www.nogaqrp.org


10. Work stations holding a Peanut Power Number (PPN) for 5 points. Stations worked not having a PPN (they will send power instead) yield 2 points. Yes, QRO stations may request a PPN. Remember, you do not declare a category until you decide to send in your entry.  If you get halfway through and change your power, simply enter under a different category than your original intention.

 

To request your PPN, send an email to NoGaNuT PeTe at Pete@... Requests for special numbers may no longer be accommodated. Remember to include the phrase - "PEANUT POWER NUMBER" in the subject line of your request. See the current list of Peanut Power Numbers here:     https://www.dropbox.com/s/qoqkq4sa6tq4jrg/ PPS%20Numbers%20by%20Call%202019.xlsx?dl=0

Banner-Transceiver Kits

Keith Arns
 

Greetings,
For the November Banner I would like to do another survey, this time on transceiver kits.

What was your favorite transceiver parts kit that you built and enjoy operating the most.  Must be a parts kit; KX3 doesn't count but a K1 or K2 does.
Provide a short reason why you chose this kit.

Please do not respond here but send your response to editorqrpbanner@...

Regards,
Keith Arns
