Fall has finally shown us some cooler weather. That means it is certainly time to play some radio outdoors!

So set your alarm clocks and plan on joining us at 0730 local time at Cracker Barrel in Sanford, FL for breakfast and some show ‘n tell of your latest rigs and QSO’s.

Let’s hear about your Peanut Power Sprint stories. Mine was not so hot… broken connection on my balun meant I lost an hour due to bad antenna and high SWR. By the time I switched to an EFHW, I only had time to make a very few contacts. What is your tale of woe? or success?

After breakfast and lots of storytelling, we’ll adjourn to Sylvan Lake Park and be setting up around 0900 local time. Watch for our callsign tags and antennas, but normally we set up at Picnic Area A unless it is reserved. If you don’t see us, check Picnic Area B and C to find us.

Love to have guests and friends come along to see how ham radio using low power can be a great hobby, especially combined with being outdoors.

p.s. There are a couple QRP rigs for sale… FT-817’s in great shape. Contact Ron Eike KA3PSO or Mike (YouTubeMan)Ramos KK4KWZ for info. See QRZ.com for contact info.
