Back on topic

Back to Amateur Radio.

This weekend is a busy one if you're a QRP contester. Tomorrow is the QRP-ARCI Memorial Sprint as well as the Bubba Sprint sponsored by the Arizona SQRPions. Also tomorrow is the New Jersey QSO party. This is not a QRP Sprint per se; but it is a significant event, nonetheless. Then on Sunday night, to round things off is the monthly Run For The Bacon Sprint, which is sponsored by the Flying Pigs.

I am hoping to set up the NorCal Doublet in the backyard and get a few hours of the Memorial Sprint in as well as the Bubba sprint (they run at the same time). Later in the evening, after the kids are in bed for the night, I hope to get in some operating in the NJ QSO Party. Sunday night is a no-brainer. Since I'm the contest manager for the Flying Pigs, you can bet your bottom dollar that I'll be active in the RFTB.

My goal this weekend is to get my QRP CW QSO toal back up to where it should be. July was a slow month for me, radio-wise. Besides going away on vacation, it seemed that something came up each time I was to attend my normal monthly operating events. My QSO total for July was below average (for me) and I have some ground to make up if I hope to make my goal of 2006 QSOs in 2006.

Hope to hear you on the air tomorrow!
