The rules have been posted for QRP To The Field for 2019. I seriously doubt that i will be able to participate this year as the scheduled date is Saturday, April 20th - which is also Holy Saturday of Easter Weekend.
At any rate - here are the rules (as per NA5N) for those who are not otherwise occupied:
It's now spring (though hard to believe in some parts of the country) and
April is almost here. Time for QRP TO THE FIELD.
The 2019 QRPTTF Rules are here:
I've received several emails regarding this years QRPTTF, like:
1) My favorite forest and campground burned down and now closed
2) Go for a water theme as my town is still under water
3) The bridge leaving town to my favorite spot is still closed
4) Can't travel too far these days - pick something close
So on the side of caution, this year's QRPTTF is laying low and pretty
easy ... "Any Ole Park" from the empty lot down the street to a recognized
park. Can be close to home for safety for those in flood areas and closed
highways. And of course, SOTA operations are invited as always.
Last year's QRPTTF the solar flux was rock bottom at 64. The USAF is
predicting a solar flux of 74-78 and Kp=2 for April 20, so at least some
improvement to daytime HF. Maybe we'll get a little solar flare to kick it
up even higher (actually been a few solar flares past couple of weeks).
So get your field gear out of winter hibernation and give it a checkout for
73, Paul NA5N
So there you have it, for your edification.
