If you haven't been to FDIM and Hamvention; and need a little QRP or
Amateur Radio "fix", then this event is for you! If you were lucky
enough to attend; then what the hey! Stay awake for a few hours more
and join us this Sunday night for the monthly Run For The Bacon! Maybe
you can put that new key, paddle or accessory you just purchased to good
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 EST (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 March 26th 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!
