A nice turn out with good radio conditions. I'm sure there a few that
haven't reported scores yet. Interesting that we had two families of
brothers participating this time (AA4LR and NJ8J) (K4BK and K4OD).
Also, welcome to KE4KWE for his first score contribution to the club not
on his customary mode of RTTY.
I also made QSOs in the NCCC CQ WPX Practice session on Thursday night
and in the QRPARCI Hoot Owl Sprint Sunday night, but didn't bring the
claimed scores in to the office today.
This weekend brings a number of contests that should be low pressure and
fun. Thursday night local is the usual NCCC NA Sprint Practice Ladder
30 minute run from 0230 to 0300Z on CW with the usual NA Sprint rules
but you can work duplicates if each has at least one intervening QSO
with another session. The QSY rule is also relaxed to one khz move.
The annual SEANet Contest runs on all modes 12Z Sat to 12Z Sun.
Exchange is RS(T) and #. You can only work SEANet area stations for
points. They are generally SouthEast Asia plus Japan, Korea, Australia
and the south Pacific, Philippines, Guam, Indonesia, etc.
RSGB and Region One of IARU have their annual CW Field Day contests 15Z
Sat to 15Z Sun. Exchange RST + #. Just answer anybody with a /P from
Europe and give them some points.
The QRPTAC Sprint is Saturday afternoon, 18 to 2359Z. CW only. Exchange
RST, Name, State, and Telephone Area Code. Bonus points for working
N3EPA. Sample log sheet available on website.
Monday night local (Tuesday 01 to 03Z) will be the June Spartan Sprint
CW. RST + SPC + power. I just got via e-mail a nice award for second
place tubby special call for the tenth anniversary contest in May.
Hope to see many of you at the Atlanta hamfest Saturday and especially
the SECC meeting in the bleachers at 11 AM, if I actually get there.
Also hope you all have fun and many QSOs on the air this weekend. If
you haven't been on lately, you have missed some really good conditions.
I worked my first Korea station (DS5USH) on 17 meters last night on the
first call. It was a special thrill since I was HL9KQ in Korea in
1968-69. Only later did I discover that I had worked Nam and three
others on 17 meters using my zepp antenna with the antenna tuner tuned
for 40 meters!
