I can deeply appreciate the endeavor of launching a new QRP event! And any excuse to get outside and operate is a good one as far as I am concerned. I hope to get out next Saturday and jump into the fray. The AccuWeather outlook for next weekend in Central NJ is clear with daytime highs in the 60s (18C). So if that holds true, it can potentially be beautiful outdoor operating conditions.
As far as QRP events go - the more the merrier. Please consider joining in to make the 4 States QRP Group's new event a rousing success!
