School is back in session for most of our families in the area. We are getting closer to fall and the slowing down of the everyday thunderstorms too. Time to play radio in the park once again.

Meet us for breakfast at the Cracker Barrel in Sanford, FL at 0730 and bring something for show and tell! Love to hear some of your favorite FOBB or Skeeter Hunt stories!

About 0900 we will be in Sylvan Lake Park setting up. Look for us at Picnic Area A (Left after the soccer fields and follow to the end by the lake) If that area is reserved we’ll fall back on area B, or C. So take a drive and watch for our antennas and license tags.  Skeeter Hunter K4UPG

NJQRP sponsored the Skeeter Hunt again this year and despite being driven off the air by lightning after 2 hours it was a good event. 158 QRP Ops registered as Skeeters and some were pounding in from as far away as Iowa with 599+ signals. How did you do in that event? Coming up this September 28th is the North Georgia Peanut Power Sprint.  They are an active group that are often on during other QRP contests either as individuals or with a club station. Let’s practice up and give them some activity. K4UPG is Peanut #29 this year and will be looking for ya on the air.

Have already heard from a few people who plan to join us Saturday 23 August 2014. Hope you will be there too! Let’s make some QSO’s.
