August Second Saturday Sprint

I hope everyone had an enjoyable time with Flight of the Bumblebees last weekend, and of course we're all looking forward to the Skeeter Hunt on the 20th. Right in between those two is this month's Second Saturday Sprint on the 12th. Details and rules are in the left navigation under About Community.

Mark your calendars for 2 hours of QRP fun and, if you don't have a member number to submit a log, send an email with your name and callsign to qfo.sss@gmail.com. Hope to hear you on the air!

Skeeter Hunt

I just realized that I haven't posted anything about this year's Skeeter Hunt. Mark your calendars for August 20 and get your request for a skeeter number in to W2LJ. Details are at the link.

SYBO - We Missed It

I just read on QRP-L that Scorch Your Butt Off was yesterday. Too bad it's the first time I'd heard about it or I would have posted the information. I wasn't able to operate the RaDAR event on Saturday because of rain so it would have been nice to get out on Sunday for a bit.

Entries Due For July Second Saturday Sprint

Just a reminder that, if you participated in last Saturday's Second Saturday Sprint, entries close at midnight this coming Saturday, July 15.

Good morning and I hope everyone in the US had an enjoyable July Fourth celebration. A belated wish for an enjoyable Canada Day to our friends to the north.

This Saturday, July 8 is the next Second Saturday Sprint. For the first time this year I'll be able to participate and I hope to work a number of you. Rules are located in the About Community link on the left navigation. Don't forget that all contacts count and information about that is located in the rules and FAQ.

Once you have a number, they're good forever, or until the sprints expire - whichever comes first. Hi

June 2017 Second Saturday Sprint Preliminary Results

My apologies for the late report on last month's sprint. I haven't finalized everything, but have enough information to make a preliminary announcement of the results. Congratulations go to Don Gibbs KK4QAM on his first place finish in the QRP category. I'll be posting the final results in the next day or two.

I'm hoping that this is the last month that I'll be strapped for time as my move to Tennessee is finally complete. My XYL and I still have a lot of unpacking and other work to complete, but we won't be spending as much time on the road. We put on about 6000 miles going back and forth between Wisconsin and Tennessee and sadly there's not much way to speed that up without a lot of tickets. LOL

I'll be making the announcement of the July sprint in the next day or two. Mark your calendars for July 8!

I hope everyone has a happy and patriotic Fourth of July.

Just a reminder to those who participated in last Saturday's Second Saturday Sprint. The entry form stays open for a week following each sprint, so this month's sprint entries will close on Saturday June 18 at midnight. Be sure you have your entry in before then.
