Antenna inspection

Homebrew Buddipole inspection

Our little QRP group is having a ball. In August we had a good turnout for breakfast and a couple others joined us later in the park. Despite the hot humid weather at this time of year, we had a full array of antennas, rigs and accessories! It is a great way to learn some of the options for outdoor operation and see what can be done with lightweight equipment running low power.

We’d love to invite you to join us Saturday 8 September 2012 when we will be doing it again! We start at 0730 at the Cracker Barrel at I-4 and SR 46 in Sanford, FL. About 0900 we will move to the park at Sylvan Lake (about 5 miles west on SR 46) and if the space is not reserved you can find us in Picnic Area A next to the lake. Weather permitting we’re out there at least through the noon hour and if the bands are good, until the batteries give out! COME JOIN THE FUN!

Big Discussion Going On

All we need to do is…. to solve world problems and get a good SWR!

    Glad to see that Hippie Bear was a bearticipant for the event! I think that looked like his homebrew Buddipole.

    GRRRRRRRRRR!
