Always happens. Got a phone call and I have had something come up.
I'll probably get on later this evening when conditions are better
anyway.

Sorry about that.

Well when we went to Atlanticon they charged admission but handed or shipped everyone a club kit, taking place of a group build. Instead of shipping door prizes, if the usual merchants offered a modest discount code to attendees they might get a lot of business.  just wild ideas,  think practical.

this is a fantastic idea to use technology to gather us together.  I watched many of the recorded GQRP presentations - they were indeed presented live -- and a moderator (they may have used a different one for each presentation) took questions at the end - they spent a lot of time with dialog. 

if you make it too fancy it may fail -  so go simple with the approach.  something like zoom allows everyone but the presenter to be muted (great idea!) and then use the chat window to take questions.  if audience is well-behaved then consider unmuting everyone after the presentation. 

somehow offering an open house to let folk interact is a nice touch, but format needs some thought. 

while you all will miss being in Branson live -- its a long trip from the east or west coast.

Re: Ozarkcon 2021

Tom Sevart
 

Hi guys, sorry I haven't responded in a while but I've been pretty busy here.

I saw the announcement about having three judges choosing the winner of the wacky key contest. I was thinking for the homebrew contest it would be neat if we could set up a website with the pictures or videos of the different projects, and then have people vote for their favorites on that webpage. However, I have very little website or HTML programming ability so I wouldn't be able to set it up. Nor would I have an idea how to prevent fraudulent voting. So perhaps it might be a better idea to use the three judge method for the homebrew contest as well. After the contest is over and winners selected, then perhaps we could showcase all the different projects on a webpage, like on the Ozarkcon or 4SQRP website.

Just throwing around ideas here, nothing's set in stone.

Finally !

John - KK4ITX
 

Just finally broke down and ordered my BJ,  I think it was the color that twisted my arm or perhaps the nostalgia surrounding the concept.  I really didn’t need another transmitter but this one is unique, has some power and may turn out to be a favorite for some QRP field work.

At my rate of project completions it should be ready for our summer trips to Minnesota and Maine....... wish me luck  !

Hello gang,
  The EZkeyer III is great, but if you want a “vintage” electronic keyer for your “vintage” QRP rig, I have just what you need! It is a Ham Radio Center of St. Louis Ham-Key HK-5A. It came in a deal with some other items, and I don’t need it. Yours for the cost of shipping!
  It cleaned up very well and it works! BUT the internal C cell holder is corroded, and several back panel jacks are badly corroded. Besides being a great keyer, I think the real value is in the Ten Tec case and the Curtis 8044 keyer IC inside!
  Contact me directly, for a picture.
