Florida Swamps are Skeeter Heaven!

   Please don’t forget that Sunday after you get home from church is the start of the 2nd Annual NJQRP Skeeter Hunt QRP Sprint.

   Last year Kelly, K4UPG brought home the wallpaper for the highest score for FL. Since I’m not a serious contester that should give the competitors out there the courage to get on the air and go for the gold! Theme this year is water… so plan to operate next to a body of water and portable for some extra multipliers. Blogger Larry, W2LJ is the coordinator and sparkplug for this event. If you like his blog let him know when you make a QSO with him. He is a great QRP operator and will be out with his new KX3 so give a listen for a fellow QRP portable op!

Looking forward to FOBB stories from you this Saturday morning.
