Big Brutus draws near... Roll call?
I am looking forward to the Brutus bash this year, and its drawing close!
Was out in the warm weather yesterday getting the van ready and a few other
things done that needed doing.
I have reservations made for Thursday night thru Saturday night. I may
not get there until Friday night, depending on some things going on.
Wondering if we could have a roll call of who is going to make it, when you plan to
Hope to see a large turn out, and some new faces!

Unless the weather is totally crappy that weekend, I plan on being there. I'll most likely arrive Saturday morning around 9 or so and will either sleep in my SUV or a hotel in Pittsburg.
If I make it, I will have some really good 12 volt, 9 amp hour, tab terminal sealed lead acid batteries with me. These will be offered for $10 each or 2 for $15 and all will be tested and fully charged.
I'm bringing my Elecraft KX3, PX3 and the KXPA100 amp along. Yeah, yeah, this is a QRP outing but I'm also going to be running some antenna tests on a rapidly deployable portable/emergency 31' extendable, helically wound fiberglass pole/antenna. Might need the 100 watt power level to keep some skeds and for 80/160 meter early morning tests.
The station will be available for anyone that doesn't own a KX3 or has never had the chance to operate one. Not trying to sell them, just give people a chance to play with a really nice rig.

QRP....."More smiles per Watt"JOHNNY AC0BQ ..
I'm hoping to put in an appearance, sometime Saturday. If anyone (or knows anyone) who's interested I'll bring along my AL811 amp (2 tube 600 watt version) for sale or trade. I've tuned it up into a dummy load and it works as it should. One meter lamp is out. other than that it works as it should, it's been in the shack since I emigrated to the US in 2002, never had a reason to use it.
If you want me to bring it along let me know.
