The gang is gathering again for another day of QRP in the Park.
Olon and his new rig setting up!
Carl and Manny check Alex’s 20m setup!
At 0730 EDT, we’ll meet for breakfast at our usual spot, Cracker Barrel in Sanford. After some show and tell with our coffee, greasy eggs and biscuits and gravy we’ll head west to Sylvan Lake Park. We normally are in Picnic Area A and by the lake if the spot is not reserved.
This Saturday is also UCF’s twice a year tailgate. If you are an early riser, go check out the goodies there and join us at the park at 0900 or so.
Remember all bands, all modes are welcome and we don’t have rules, officers or dues to get in the way of the fun.

April was a good time in the park and we had decent weather and bands to help us enjoy QRP in the park again.

So we will be doin’ it again Saturday 11 May 2013. We start with breakfast at Cracker Barrel in Sanford at 0730 EDT and have some show n tell time over food. Bring something you built, bought, or want to brag about. I’ll have the latest issue of QRP Quarterly so you can see some of our Group members photos that started their modeling careers.
About 0900 we should be starting to set up our gear in the park at Lake Sylvan Park. Normally if the site is not reserved, we are in Pavilion 2 at Picnic Area A which is on the far side of the park. Follow the signs or see this map link.
We welcome your ideas on other locations for portable ops. So please let us know where YOU would like us to work in the months ahead.
All bands –All modes — No Dues — No Officers — No Rules – JUST FUN!
Kelly K4UPG for the Group!
Want to get your rig ready for the next Central FL QRP Outing scheduled for Saturday 13 April?
Get some practice this Saturday (6 April) with two QRP events on the same day!
Listen up for other CFL QRP ops and our fellow Space Coast QRP gang and try out your new antenna or rig in the QRP ARCI Spring QSO Party . And while you are out there practicing, you can also score some points in the RaDar America Event and help our QRP brothers in the FL Panhandle (like Greg N4KGL) score some points with his Pedestrian Mobile rig.

Remember, Saturday 13 April, we will meet at 0730 EDT at Cracker Barrel in Sanford, FL at the NE corner of I-4 and SR-46 for breakfast and show n’ tell. Wonder what gear will show up this time? One of the new MTR’s perhaps? I hear that K3RLL and WB4MNK have built some filters to test out and see if we can eliminate some cross band interference. Sweet!
About 0900 EDT we’ll set up in the park. If our favorite spot in Picnic area A is reserved check for us in area B or C… if all fails, we’ll move west to the next park at Markham Woods. We’ll try to monitor 146.52 and the LMARS repeater at 146.805 so give us a shout.
Remember all bands, all modes are welcome… no rules, no officers, no dues, just fun… come and git ya some!
