Once again, our Central Florida QRP Group will take to the park and play ham radio! But this weekend promises a good mix of on air contests that will be challenging and fun for all.
One event is the annual QRP To The Field Contest sponsored by the AZ Scorpions QRP Club. Click the logo for a link to the rules for this one!
This one is always fun and the times allow for QSO’s from coast to coast. So charge up your batteries, clean your ears so you can hear the weak sigs and get out of the house and make some RF. If nothing else, give some points to the serious contesters.
Not to be left out, this is also the weekend for the FL QSO Party. Standby for STRONG LOCAL SIGS, Mobiles and snag some rare counties and sharpen your contest ears. Links to the rules…
While it is a bit of a longshot due to all the other contest activity, the Swiss Amateur Radio Society has an event this weekend too.
Who wouldn’t like making a contact with a Swiss op? Watch 10 and 15 meters for openings to the EU.
We’ll start with Breakfast at 0730 at the Cracker Barrel in Sanford, FL. That is time to brag about your latest QSO, DX, rig or new toys. About 0900 you can find us at Sylvan Lake Park setting up and operating. Check Pavilion 1 at Picnic Area A first. If it is reserved, we will be nearby, just cruise the picnic areas and look for antennas, ham license plates and a bunch of CW sounds.
We welcome all modes, do request you keep the power down for the purpose of not blowing out nearby ops front ends and sensitive gear. Come find out what we’re all about. We enjoy meeting other hams and ham wannabe’s too.
