QRP Skeeter Hunt on again August 21st 2022
Here is a great Nation Wide / World Wide QRP Event coming up on Sunday August 21st.
The New Jersey QRP Club is announcing the 10th Annual " Skeeter Hunt". The objective is to get QRPers out of their shacks for the day; and into the fresh air and sunshine, to spread their wings and fill the airwaves with "Skeeters". While commercial equipment can certainly utilized, bonus points will be awarded for those who personally home brewed their own or kit built their own equipment (equipment not built by the operator would not count as either home brewed or kit built - it would be considered commercial equipment).
This year, the event is to be held on Sunday August 21st, 2022. It will be a four hour sprint - from 17:00 UTC to 21:00 UTC (1:00 TO 5:00 PM EDT).
QRP stations who wish to be designated as "Skeeters" can get a Skeeter number by requesting one by sending an e-mail, no sooner than June 21st to w2lj@...
You do not have to operate portable to be a Skeeter! Please let me know if you intend to operate from a state other than your home state as listed on QRZ.
Skeeter numbers will be issued from June 21st (the First Day of Summer)
through the day before the event. August 20th.. Go Get Your Number...!!!

IT'S TOTALLY FREE and only requires an email being sent to the address included in the above note.
You get more points by contacting another Skeeter.. So we need a real SWARM of them out there...

you need to use plenty of "ON" as you want to get BIT by other skeeters...
