How many folks know that the end of the world will be December 21, 2012
(At least some folks who studied a rock containing the Mayan Calendar
have come to that conclusion.)
You may have heard of NØD, a special event station to commemorate this
event. For details see http://www.nowzerodays.com/
But, if you're interested in a light hearted event, in celebration of
this same event, why not join a bunch of (at least semi) mad QRP ops for
the annual Zombie Shuffle? Why a 'Shuffle' you may ask? Because, silly,
QRP Zombies don't sprint! As Paul NA5N says, "There is no point to the
Zombie Shuffle whatsoever except to get on the air and have fun with
fellow Zombies and QRPers".
Details are at http://www.zianet.com/qrp/ZOMBIE/zombie.htm
Time is from 5 p.m. local time to Midnight local time (or anything
similar to that - shucks, this is a zombie event, and zombies are
immortal, have little or no sense of time). Call CQ BOO on or around
QRP "watering hole" frequencies of 14.060, 7.040, 7.030, 7.106, 3.560,
3.710, or anything that works.
Plus, this year and this year only, you can celebrate the end of the
Mayan Calendar and possibly the End of the World as We Know It!! You
surely don't want to miss out on that, HA!
Remember, this isn't a high-speed sweepstakes but a friendly little
contest. Please QRS for newcomers and us old skeletons alike :-).
And, above all, have fun!
HPE CU FRI, December 21.
