Hello to All 160 Meter Radio People, Contesters, DXers and others,
It is but a few days until the starting bell is gonged at the Club
at 15:00Z Dec 27. Please avail yourselves of the pertinent rules and
writings at the web site below.
Read the words carefully and you'll see that The Stew Perry Contest,
by The Boring Amateur Radio Club, is a groundbreaking contest where scores
related to a distance scoring mnemonic along with getting extra points by
a low power or qrp station. Imagine that! The station sweating and
straining the cochleas
to do the heavy lifting will receive extra points for making the Q. If
everyone who plays
sends in a log, no matter how short or seemingly unimportant, then the
will be even more accurate and true.
The actual contesters decide which heroic radio feats should be
awarded a plaque.
These Radio Stalwarts have suggested a category and sent in either $60 or
spur on the competition in selected categories. You can do the same. There
enough time! Just contact me below at the address listed way below.

Dr. Beldar-L1AR Top score utilizing temporary antenna. (All parts
of temporary antenna including radials must be installed after
Dec. 14, 2014. This antenna must be the only antenna for
TopBand at the station, and may be left up, because as we
all know, "temporary" means "until I die".)
Time remains to get a wire airborne and get on to play this weekend.
Volunteer your time carefully this week before the contest so that your
loved ones will cheerfully suggest that you go to your radio for The Stew
instead of making small talk about Great-Aunt Edith's predilection for
small creatures and the value of cleanliness.
Those sponsors who haven't yet remembered to send in the check please
remind yourself to do so as we do not wish to activate The Boring Amateur
Radio Club Committee on Collections. The members of this committee all
have funny looking noses and work a code that is different than the Morse
or American that we are used to using.
There will be another epistle similar to this very close to the
of The Stew listing the available plaques.
73 and I remain,
The Boring Amateur Radio Club Committee on Communications
