Obviously there is a lot of RTTY contest activity in AL. NAQP RTTY is
February 29-March 1. I am sure ACG will have teams in that one. WF4W
will register SECC teams for that one. Remember, you do not have to be
within the club circle or even be a member of a club to be on a team.
It seems to me that GA and Carolina RTTY ops could put together some
very good RTTY teams to compete with ACG teams and nationally. Please
let WF4W know if you would like to be on a SECC team and whether you
will be full time or part time and low power or QRP.
2. Straight Key Night
K4BAI 19 19 6:21 GA
3. QRPARCI Pet Rock Sprint
K4BAI 35 27 28,350 5W QRP 3.0 GA
4. Adventure Radio Society January Spartan Sprint
K4BAI 30 30 Tubby 2.0 GA
Also, in Tuesday night's QRP Fox Hunt, I worked 63 stations + the two
Foxes = 65. Conditions weren't too good. Pretty much worked all areas
except W6/7 and VE. No long skip noted. Thanks to K4NM, K4PIC, N3TL,
K4JPN, AB9CD, N4SAM et al for QSOs. A full report has been posted to
the qfox reflector. If you are not subscribed to that and would like a
copy of the full report, let me know and I'll send you one.
This Week's Contests:
1. NCCC NAQP Practice Sessions. 0230-0259Z Friday and Saturday
(Thursday and Friday local time). Usual NAQP rules. No dupes. Low
power. 10-160M CW. Exchange: Name + SPC.
2. SNS slow speed NA Sprint Practice. 0200-0215Z Friday (Thursday
local). 80-40M. Max power: 100W. Max speed: 22 WPM. Exchange:
both calls, #, name, SPC. Dupes OK after band change or one intervening
3. Thursday night QRP Fox Hunt. Two foxes will be QRV 0200-0330Z
Friday between 7030 and 7050. 5W maximum. Exchange: RST, SPC, Name,
4. Michigan QRP Club January CW Contest. 160-6M CW. 12Z Sat to 2359Z
Sun. Exchange: RST + SPC + MiQRP Club # or power output.
5. North American QSO Party. 160-10M CW. 18Z Sat to 06Z Sun.
Exchange: Name + SPC for NA stations. Only Name for non-NA stations.
(My contest software wants something in the SPC space, so I put "DX" in
there. I usually delete the "DX" in the Cabrillo log before submission,
but I doubt that is necessary.) Maximium time for single ops: 10
hours. Maximum power: 100 watts. Teams of two to five single ops may
be registered. ACG teams registered by WA1FCN; SECC by K4BAI. For
SECC, we have 8 stations so far and I'd like to have at least two more
and, ideally, a lot more than that. We have 8 for each mode (CW and
SSB). I will register the CW teams Friday, so please e-mail me ASAP if
you can participate and would like to be on a SECC team. Again, you need
not be inside the SECC circle or even be a SECC member. Just let me
know your call, name to be used, SPC and whether you expect to be full
time or part time and whether you expect to run low power or QRP. This
is a fun contest with a lot of band changing possible since mults (NA
SPCs) count per band. There is always a lot of activity. No QSY rule,
so you can practice running or search and pounce or both.
6. Straight Key Century Club Weekend Sprintathon (SKS). 00-24Z Sun.
160-6M CW. Exchange: RST + Name + SPC + SKCC# or "none." The sponsor
requests "real" RST reports. Extra points for QSOs with LW3EX.
Hope everyone has a good week and weekend and makes a lot of QSOs.
