I had to leave quickly after Ozarkcon wrapped up since the wife & kids & I had tickets for the Dixie Stampede, so didn't get to search for the transmitter. Where was it hidden?

Hello Marty
Well it's the new release of a really cool 
80 meter 1/2 watt transceiver that was used for the build session this weekend at Ozarkcon.
The kit page will be up early this week on the 4sqrp web page.
Sorry I can't find the link to the page at the minute!

You know in years past I've seen people post that they arrived home safe and wondered why? That is until last year (we were in an accident on the way to Ozarkcon 2016). 


I have to say I have a whole new meaning  with that phrase. We arrived safely to Ozarkcon and arrived safely back home. What a great weekend. It was one of those deals that helps you to put some of the past truly behind you. 


Now I'm looking forward to the next Ozarkcon!

NAQCC April Sprint this Tuesday Evening

Larry W2LJ <w2lj@...>
 

On Tuesday evening, April 11 (4/12 UTC), we will have our landmark 150th regular monthly sprint.
We want to celebrate this event by giving away a prize worth $150 to one member-participant!
But there is a catch, we will only have a prize drawing if we get at least 150 submitted logs.
You don’t have to be an experienced contester or a high speed CW operator to participate.
Just get on the air, make at least 1 sprint QSO, and submit your log, and you will be eligible for the prize drawing.
So mark your calendar and get ready!

EDT - 8:30-10:30PM, CDT - 7:30-9:30PM, MDT - 6:30-8:30PM, PDT - 5:30-7:30PM),
which translates as Wednesday, April 12th, 0030 to 0230Z in all cases.

For all the "official" information, please go to:

http://naqcc.info/sprint/sprint201704.html

There you will find all the details as to time, frequencies and other important
information.

This is a monthly event that caters to the CW veteran, the CW newcomer, straight
key and bug fans. All are welcome to participate (this includes QRO); but you
must use QRP power levels to compete for awards.

If you've been hesitant to join in our sprints because you hear other sprints
running at breakneck speeds, have no fear. Our sprints are geared to the
newcomer to CW and/or contesting. Virtually everyone including the many veteran
contesters who regularly enter our sprints will slow down to YOUR speed to help
you make your contacts.

If you are not already a member of NAQCC... membership is FREE! Now is your
chance to join the largest QRP CW Club in the world!! We currently have 7100+
members in: All 50 States - 9 VE Provinces - 100 Countries. Sign up on the
NAQCC website today (http://naqcc.info/) and receive a handsome certificate,
with your membership number on it, which is good for life.

Come join us and have a real good time!

Sarah and I made it home fine, the wind from the south was a little stiff.

First I want to thank all that helped put on the Ozarkcon, I think it was a good one. A BIG thanks to the presenters and for saying YES I WILL!

Thanks to all that attended and I hope to see you all there next year. All the people including eyeball qsos with WQ5RP will get a QSL card. I will work on them this week. The card has been generated on the on-line QSL page. 

Thanks again to all and CUL the SSS starts in 39 minutes I'm ready de Paul N0NBD ar sk ..

Congratulations to Nick - WA5BDU for locating the Hidden Oscillator at OzarkCon 2017.
It took him only 20 minutes using a KX3 and what can only be described as "a scrunched up ball of wire attached to a dummy load".
Enjoy your Hy-Per-Mite kit Nick.

OK, I underestimated you guys.

OzarkCon Kit Build - 2017

dekle@...
 

The kit-building workshop at OzarkCon was a huge success!

Almost everyone left with a working Cricket - the new 4S 80-meter transceiver.
A BIG thank you to those instrumental in its success: David Cripe, Joy and Walter Dufrain, Gary and Martha Auchard, Dennis Gaskill, Johnny Matlock, and Terry Fletcher. (I hope I didn't miss anyone.)

I just wish there was a Certificate Program that would encourage on-the-air Cricket activity.

OzarkCon reference materials

Don Jackson
 

Well, another great year of OzarkCon has come to an end!

I enjoyed most talks and probably found NM0S's presentation on ham radio and scouts, his short preview of coming kits, and WD5AGO's presentation mostly about VHF and higher very interesting to me.  I'm sure, it's each to his own of what one enjoys or learns from the most.  Thanks to all presenters and also all who worked behind the scenes to make another great year.

I am writing this to say I'm looking forward to accessing reference material that speakers said they'd put on the 4SQRP website (or their own).  I would like to encourage for ALL to share their materials with us, not only because we didn't take good enough notes, but as reminders.  Yes, it is a little more work to submit your power point or other materials to the 4SQRP webmaster, and more work for him to place it properly for our access, but I feel it is well worth the effort as a follow up to great presentations.

If the presenter has a website of their own that they can put their materials on, that is great!  Make sure it is publicized.  Next best is on the 4SQRP website, and finally, if all else fails, I have room to post them on my web host provider's site and service.  Just let me know if you'd like to do that.

A lot of work happens in the preparation of any decent talk.  Don't let it disappear -- post it on the web!  My very old talk on QRPp/QRSs given to the old QRP conference held in Fort Smith in 2003 is still on line and still accessed by hundreds of hams throughout the world each year.  It is referenced through links by several well known ham website too.  I am just very happy that someone may gain something out of a talk given 14 years ago!

Share it!

72/73,

Don AE5K
