July has been a big contest month for QRP!

We’ll meet for breakfast at 0730 EDT in our regular spot: Cracker Barrel in Sanford, FL for some coffee, grits & biscuits and lots of DX and homebrew project bragging. We might even solve some pressing world problems.

Not an early riser? No worries!

At 0900 you can find us setting up our rigs at Sylvan Lake Park. Check for us at Picnic area A and Pavilion 2 or nearby. Here’s a map of the park layout.

All are welcome, bring a QRP rig if you want, or find someone that’ll let you try out their gear. All modes and skill levels are welcome! We love to help you figure out how to get started in ham radio and portable QRP (low power) operation. See ya Saturday!

Per our regular practice, the June Outing is to participate in a local club ARRL Field Day rather than our monthly QRP Portable outing at Sylvan Lake Park. Use what you have learned about portable operation to assist those that only do it once a year. It is also a great opportunity to show off your antenna launching skills and other expertise.

Help promote our hobby by welcoming curious visitors and answering questions. Here’s a great link for those that want to pursue learning more.
