Wow! What a weekend coming up! We have the QRP-ARCI Memorial Sprint,
the Bubba Summer QRP Sprint, the NJ QSO Party as well as the NAQP/SSB.
And then to round things off, this Sunday evening, the Flying Pigs
Amateur Radio Club International will be holding its monthly Run For The
Bacon. This is a friendly, two hour QRP CW Sprint, which is open to ALL
radio amateurs, will last from 9:00 - 11:00PM EDT (0200-0400 UTC Monday).
You may work stations once per band on 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 or 10
Meters. Suggested starting frequencies are 1.812, 3.562, 7.044, 14.062,
21.062, and 28.062 MHz.
The exchange is RST, S/P/C (State, Province, Country) and Flying Pigs
membership number. If you're not a member of the Flying Pigs, and would
like to be; then please click on the "membership" hyperlink on
http://www.fpqrp.com/. Otherwise, non-members can just use their output
You can report your score via the Autolog page which can be found at
or you can mail your logs to the address given on the Autolog page. The
deadline for logs is August 27th at 2400 UTC.
As like last month, the top three scorers will win a certificate. Keep
in mind that anyone who participates in 10 out of 12 RFTBs this year
will earn a special Certificate of Merit at the end of the year. So
please use the Autolog if you've participated; but were unfortunate
enough to make any contacts. In this case, trying helps!
Hope to catch you on the air Sunday evening!
