Welcome to the FPqrp Club
RUN for the BACON
Autolog for November - 2014
K9PX, Jim, 5w fpqso=22 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=18 total=1188
K2 & 80m loop. Nice to work both FP#1 & FP#2 tonite. QSO's: 40m: 18 & 80m: 4. Thanks to all.. 72, Jim
N5GW, Gene, 5W fpqso=16 fpdxqso=1 nonfpqso=0 spc=14 total=742
K1 and KX3 to CFZ. Started out on 20M and was glad to work KH6REO and three other piglets. Moving to 40M gave the most results, but only one 80M QSO due to QRN from local storms.
wb0cff, Carl Gansen, 5w fpqso=16 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=14 total=672
I was running my new toy, a TT Argonaut 6. I was hearing better than being heard on 20M and 40M. 80M was rough with 1 QSO. 40M was most productive.
wb4mnk, Art, 5w fpqso=14 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=12 total=516
Was fun to night and some good practice. Thanks to all who called me and the ones I just couldn't pull through we will make it next month I am sure.
First time trying my new 29' 6" vertical using a home made 9:1 UNUN. Rig FT-450 at 5W.
KF7WNS, GARY, 5W fpqso=13 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=12 total=480
Another fun night. 20M only lasted 30 min and 40 had QRN at S8, so it was quite a challenge. Thanks to all for your contacts. Heard Diz on 20M before the start, but band changed by start time. Rig here K1 and Inv Vee at 35'. 72's Gary
NQ2W, Will, 5 W fpqso=13 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=11 total=429
Ten-Tec Jupiter at 5 W to a 2-element mini beam (10,15,20) at 25 ft, an inv vee (40) at 40 ft, and a ground mounted, near-bottom loaded vertical (80). 3 QSOS on 20, 8 on 40, and 2 on 80. Signals were up and down on all bands. I received more RBN spots on 80 than on 20 and 40 combined, which is unusual. Doubles with W8DIZ and N5GW (20 and 40) and K9PX and WB0CFF (40 and 80). Loads of fun! Happy Thanksgiving! 72, Will, NQ2W
WØPQ, Dave, 5W fpqso=13 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=10 total=390
Four QSOs on 20M - Nine on 40M. Was fortunate to work FP#1 and FP#2 - W8DIZ and WB6JPM, both of Florida. Two 2-banders, WB4NMK FL and KF7WNS OR. Both bands were not populated by many. Missed K4BAI if he was on tonight. Rig here is a K1 to a G5RV up 40 FT. Hung up the head phones 15 minutes into the 2nd hour. Thanks to all. This old geezer is going to bed.
AD7AN, Tim, 5w fpqso=11 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=11 total=363
First run with the new rig. I think I did better than usual out here in the hinterland of Montana. My big dx was AL7JK and WB4MNK on 20meter.
W8DIZ, Diz, 5W fpqso=9 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=9 total=243
Great Fun! On 20 Meters, worked NQ2W, WB0CFF, KT1K, W0PQ and K7TQ. On 40 meters, worked WB6JBM (FP#-2) and K9PX. Time for a beer :)
Antenna was a 20 meter vertical dipole...not the best for 40 meters but it works. Rig was KX3.
Just worked NQ2W on 40 ...love this stuff
and one more LOL...N5GW in MS...what a fun night.
KA2KGP, Tom, 5 fpqso=9 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=7 total=189
Lousy bands in the WNY pigpen with low grunts and squeels from piggies here. Rig: IC-7000 at 5w. into a 160m. vert./longwire contraption. 7 QSO's ON 40M. with only 2 on 80m. A bad night in the barn yard!
K7TQ, Randy, 5w fpqso=7 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=8 total=176
A slow night here in ID. N5GW on both 20 and 40. Called it quits at 0315. Catch you all in December.
KT1K, Bob, 5w fpqso=8 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=7 total=168
Nice to be back after a couple of months...what an honor to work #1 and I agree BEER time or maybe a SCOTCH
wb6jbm, /rick, 5w fpqso=5 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=4 total=60
Got a late start, as i was in QSO w/CO8RRM @GTMO, lost AK3X due to QRN, which was high, along w/QSB all over. only running an Inverted V. Must put up Diz LOOP,,, Speaking of Papa,,, WORKED HIM!!! YAY!!!! wrk K9PX, W8DIZ, AB9CA, W0PQ, WB4MNK. QRT after about an hour, as it's bed time. It's great to be back!!! 72 & oo /rick wb6jbm
ab9ca, Dave, 5w fpqso=4 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=4 total=48
Tough night. The combination of QSB and noise was so bad I had to ask nearly everyone for lots of fills. Hope others had better condx. I quickly gave up. Only 4 in the log: KT1K on 20 and K9PX, W0PQ, WB6JBM on 40. Heard WB0CFF on 20; KA2??? on 40, but the QSB and noise kept eating the signal. Just not a good QRP night on the air from here on the Gulf Coast. Thanks for the few Q's I made and we'll hope for better condx next month. Rig was K2 at 5w to 100' wire about 60' up. 73 and GL to all . . . Dave, ab9ca/4
K3RLL, Don, 5w fpqso=4 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=4 total=48
K3 to nitetime only 4-BTV: Like Randy said, slow night in the barnyard, but happy for those loyal FPs who came back to me tonight. Was late getting on but doesn't sound like I missed a lot of excitement in the first hour. : -) Just wait 'till next month! oo
AL7JK, John, 2w fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=3 total=27
Set the HW-9 at 2 watts output to my 140 ft longwire antenna, and had a blast today. With the "unsettled conditions" wasnt hearing much until greyline enhancement occurred, 20 mtrs turned out the best for me inside the auroral oval. Want to say thank you to: AD7AN, KF7WNS and KH6REO for taking the time to pull me outta your noise level. See you all on the bands !
WB6HVH, John, 5 fpqso=2 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=12
New math. Subtracted 3 hrs from 9pm-11pm for west coast op times and came up with 7-9pm. Sheer genius. Got late start and of course no one was around during 'my' second hour!
k0mis, Mike, 5 fpqso=2 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=12
AK3X, Peter, 3W fpqso=2 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=12
Just a few minutes to operate. K9PX was loud as usual. WB6JBM lost me in the noise. Better luck next month. 72 and OO. Peter
