Welcome to the FPqrp Club
RUN for the BACON
Autolog for March - 2019
N5GW, Gene, 5W fpqso=14 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=2 spc=14 total=616
KX3 to pair of doublets. I started out on 20M but heard no oinks. Moving to 40 yielded five Q's, but the real pig pen was 80 M for 11 Q's. I made a few calls on 160M toward the end, but nary a grunt or squeal was heard. Overall it was good to hear so many piggies for a change.
K4BAI, John, 5W fpqso=12 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=10 total=370
Nothing on 40 in first 15 mins, so went to 80. Went back to 40 around 0200Z and worked AB9CA/7 in AZ and KF7WNS in OR. QSOs on 80: 11. Called on 160M but no other stations heard there. See you all next month. Look for the GA QSO Party April 13 and 14. 73/72, John, K4BAI.
WB9HFK, Mark, 5W fpqso=9 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=2 spc=9 total=261
Only heard 1 station on 40M - K3RLL and we had a successful QSO. I CQed for quite a while and was unable to stir up any more business. 80M much better and thanks for all the QSO'es.
Look forward to next months Run! 72, Mark WB9HFK
K3RLL, Don, 5 fpqso=9 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=8 total=224
K3 to two highly compromised HOA-restricted black pseudo-antennas.
Conditions seemed better than predicted on QRZ.Com but contact rate didn't seem to match RBN. Seems that RBN has been my 2nd most reliable contact next to KB1M. (SMILE)
Great to work K3JZD, former neighbor and SOTA guide.
Thanks for the contacts, fellow piggies. 72 oo ... Don
k4wy, Jack, 5 fpqso=8 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=7 total=168
FT 817 and inverted L. So, it was a tough wallow from my QTH. Put out an oink on 160 heard a lot of farmers and some Canadian bacon but no takers, 40 same way. 80 meters was good with strongest oinkers from K4BAI, N5GW and WB9HFK.
72s til next time!
KA2KGP, Tom, 5w. fpqso=8 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=7 total=168
Sloppy mudpits here in the WNY pigpen. Only a few oinkers heard on 80m. and one big boar grunting on 40m. Rig: ICOM IC-7000 at 5w. into G5RV up 25 ft. 73 to all us piggies.

WB0CFF, Carl Gansen, 5w fpqso=6 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=6 total=108
I could only do an hour tonight. 20M and 40M produced nothing. All QSOs were on 80M. 72 Carl
KI5II, Jim, 5 fpqso=6 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=6 total=108
Good to hear Lloyd again. Its been a while. Got on too late to work 20 so just tried 40 and 80. Hope to be here next month. 40 M full wave delta loop and 80 M EF wire.
KB9W, Dan, 5w fpqso=5 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=5 total=75
Worked K3RLL on 40 meters with a good signal but unable to find any more piggies so went to 80 meters after a half hour and found four more K3JZD, K4BAI, N5GW, & KA2KGP with a lot of QSB but good signals. Called CQ FP a few times in the last hour but was not hearing much of anything. CU next month, 73 Dan
KF7WNS, Gary, 5W fpqso=4 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=5 total=65
Worked as long as I could. All 40m... nothing heard on 20m.
K3RLL heard 539
WA4AAK, Evan, 5W fpqso=4 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=4 total=48
Enjoyed my first Flying Pigs adventure - will apply for membership for next time. Worked 4 pigs on 80m: K4BAI, WB9HFK, K3ESE, and N5GW. Thanks!
KB1M, walt, 5W fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=3 total=30
A very quiet barnyard on 40 only heard few southern states FL,MS,LA. N5GW was very loud for a short time even with the poor conditions. Thanks for the Qso's. 72/73 Walt
K3JZD, Jody, 5w fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=3 total=27
Not much RF in or out of my QTH this evening. One on 40m & two on 80m. Jody - K3JZD
W4KRN, Karen, 5w fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=3 total=27
Only heard K3RLL very weak on 40m. Worked the 3 usual piggies K4BAI, N5GW and WB9HFK on 80m. Maybe better luck next month. 72 <('oo')>

Only time for 3 QSOs (7 minutes). Thanks to Gene N5GW, Mark WB9HFK, and John K4BAI. Hope for more time next month. 72 and OO. Peter (and my cat, Henry, who was sleeping on my chair making me stand. CATS RULE)

I had no luck tonight. No one heard me and I could hear no one else. Better luck next time.
k3ems, George, 5 fpqso=0 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=0 total=0
Limited to 40 this Run- didn't hear a thing. In fact- I mixed the days up, made a few CQ FP's on SATURDAY night and had no luck there either.
