As Chuck says, inquiring minds want to know, so here is my story
about the QRP Fall contest. I had a great time. I would like
to thank everyone I worked and apologize to everyone I did not
hear. I'll start modifing my Argosy as soon as I build a
workbench (but that's another stroy).
This was my first contest using a logging program (N6TR's) and it
was great!! I finished the interface box on Thursday. The box
keyed the rig and also allowed my paddles to be connected. This
was a big plus.
There were several big signals out there. Looking over my log
they were K8NQC, N4LH and N9ND to name a few.
I worked about 6 hours around a hectic schedule including an
overnight visit by my parents, my son's soccer game, a party
at friends and the Giants football game. There were several
times I would go down to the radio a make a few contacts before
anyone missed me.
Now for the summary.
Rig: Ten Tec Argosy
Ant: 3 elem Yagi up 35 ft / ground mounted vertical
Pwr: 1 - 5 Watts
81 Q's for 330 pts
Total (I think) 83,160
If anyone has a copy of the rules that were posted before the
contest could you mail me a copy. Also if there are any special
forms I need to fill out please include those.
I've been away from QRP for awhile and it was nice to get back.
As soon as the workbench is completed I'll even start to build
