October 12, 2013 QRP Outing & QRP Events

Posted: October 4, 2013 by cflqrp in Events, Ham Radio, QRP

Cooler weather is slowly returning to central Florida. Come join us in the shade by the lake for some QRP portable activities.  We know that some will be joining the Melbourne Hamfest searching for parts and gear but we’ll still be active on the air at our normal hangout spot in Sanford.

Meet with us at Cracker Barrel in Sanford, FL at 0730 for breakfast and show n tell. At 0900 we should be setting up at Lake Sylvan Park. We try to meet at Picnic Area A unless it has been reserved. If you don’t see us there, check out other picnic sites and watch for our license plates and antennas.

September had quite a few QRP sprints and contests. Some of us enjoyed the QRP Afield and NAQCC and ARS sprints and are waiting on scores. Our date in October falls on a busy weekend that should have some activity to work even if band conditions are poor. Click the links below for more info.


Get Boy Scouts on the Air!

Another service and operating activity opportunity is October 19th when KK4VB and K4UPG invite you to join us at the American Legion on Goldenrod Road, Orlando to demonstrate Ham Radio to Boy Scouts during the Jamboree on the Air.  Many hams are former boy scouts and scout leaders and it is a fun way to encourage our young men to consider technology and science careers. If you are interested, leave a comment or send an email to us so we can let you know our schedule.

CU there and on the air–72,

Kelly K4UPG for the group
