NAQCC Contest KB9BVN on 14/11/11
NAQCC Sprint Wednesday night!

The November sprint is this coming Wednesday evening local time (8:30-10:30 p.m. E.D.T.), which is Thursday, November 17, 0130-0330z.

I will refer you to the proper URL:

There you will find all the details as to time, frequencies and other important information.

Certificates: SWA (simple wire antennas) certificates by call area, VE, DX, and if anyone has a 160M gain antenna, a certificate in the GAIN category as well.

Prizes: A prize of a set of bug/paddle handles or a K1/K2 knob insert donated by master woodworker Gregg WB8LZG is awarded for each sprint to the winner of a random drawing among all participants. Previous winners are not eligible.

This is a monthly event that caters to the CW veteran, the CW newcomer, straight key and bug fans. All are welcome to participate (this includes QRO); but you must use QRP power levels to compete for awards.

If you are not already a member of NAQCC... membership is FREE! Just sign up on the NAQCC website ( and you will receive a handsome certificate, with your membership number which is good for life, plus a starter kit.

Field Day WA0ITP on 29/7/11
I was at a Field Day gathering about 20 years ago and we needed to get the antenna in the tree. So we tried to tie a string to a rock to throw over a branch and it just wasn't working out too well. One of the guys pulled the biggest wrench I have ever seen, from his truck. He tied the line on the end of the wrench and threw it as hard as he could...we all watched in silence as it made this high beautiful arc up toward the branch of our desire...missing...and coming down through the windshield of his truck. DOHT!!

I use my Elecraft K1 or my K2 for all of my QRP Contesting. Great radios.
