The April 2017  issue of QST NFL is available at the NFL Section Web Page - 

Greetings North Florida Hams!  Welcome to the GREATEST HOBBY IN THE WORLD!

I guess summer is here already.  At our portable op last Friday, it was 84 degrees. Two weeks ago, working in Maryland, it was 19 degrees and I watched 18 inches of snow fall!  Living in Florida is nice! 

This coming month sports the 20th Anniversary of the Florida QSO Party, administered by the Florida Contest Group.  This is a fun event that runs for short period of time for two days, this year April 29 and 30.  More information is available at .

Some upcoming events….the annual Florida Hurricane Exercise will be in May, also the Dayton Hamvention in it’s new digs (Xenia, OH), Four Days in May (FDIM) QRP gathering during the same time/location. 

Not a lot going on locally this time of year, and I am quite busy with work and some work-related travel – yeah, I’m retired!!  (Almost!!)  I apologize for the “short” message this month.

That’s all for now……I will be at the DEARS (Disney) meeting on April 12th.  I am also scheduled for the Orlando ARC for May 3rd.  More to come.  I hope to see you and say, “Hi” face-to-face!

Get involved, get active, get happy!  Stay safe, get on the air, and have fun!!


73, Steve WB4OMM
