Welcome to the FPqrp Club
RUN for the BACON
Autolog for November - 2020
n0ta, John, 5w fpqso=15 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=2 spc=15 total=705
First timer - fun!
VE3KZ, Bob, 5W fpqso=15 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=2 spc=13 total=611
Nice bunch of operators. A little too few on 20m and 40m was getting crowded. See you all next month!
KB9W, Dan, 5W fpqso=9 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=9 total=243
No luck on 20 meters this month, but 40 meter was best finding piggies between the RTTY and SST. Was able to find a few more QSO's on 80 meters at the end.
It was fun as always. 73/72 and CU next month. Dan ... oo
k4wy, Jack, 5 fpqso=11 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=7 total=231
IC-705 - 5 watts and dipoles. Good wallow tonight. 40 was oinking early and then went to 80 to wrap it up. I had more north - south contacts tonight than usual. Missed the midwest qsos. until next time 72's
K3JZD, Jody, 5w fpqso=7 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=2 spc=9 total=207
Three on 40m, then six on 80m. Tough to make time for an early event. Extended my EFRW from 59' out to 107'. But did it by making a 90 degree turn in the middle. That seemed to help on 80m. I guess more wire in the air is better no matter how it is run. KX3 - 5w. Jody - K3JZD.
KB9BVN, Brian, 5 fpqso=9 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=2 spc=7 total=203
40m was best place for me...not a great number of contacts but good fun anyway. Was hoping for more Piggies in the Zoom Room...maybe next month!
W0ITT, Gary, 4W fpqso=7 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=3 spc=7 total=168
Back after a while away from the RFTB. I fired up my ancient CRK10-A crystal controlled radio, had a good time on 7033 until some other events moved in :). Antenna inverted vee at 32 feet.
Good to hear/work some of the old crew, and welcome to the new fellows.
See you guys next time.
72 de Gary W0ITT 3988
N4SO, Ken, 5W fpqso=5 fpdxqso=1 nonfpqso=4 spc=6 total=144
It was mostly clear below 7.040 before SST... Onward to
next month. Excellent signal from Gary, W0ITT.
K4BAI, JOHN, 5W fpqso=7 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=2 spc=6 total=138
Wonder how DX is defined for this sprint? Did not count VE3KZ and VA3NU as "DX." If I shorted my point total, someone please tell me. Could operate only 42 minutes before got the chow call and came back to the rig for the SST. The suggested frequencies for SST are 7030-7039. Obviously, they will sometime get higher than 7039, but I'd expect up from 7040 kHz you could find a clear frequency. No sigs on 20M here tonight. All QSOs on 40. Called CQ about 10 times on 3560+. bbut it was too early, I guess. 73/72, John, K4BAI.
KD4MSR, SCOTT, 5W fpqso=6 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=7 total=133
My first RFTB as a new Pig. Worked N0TA, K1LB, K9UCX (non-mbr), VE3KZ (who I thought was VE3KZX), W0ITT, AB9CA/5, and KD4ORO. All good ops and good sigs. But, I really only heard about 3 or 4 others who couldn't hear me. Bands seemed odd to me. The CW Ops K1USN slow speed test overlapped with us. Tnx to all who worked me. KD4MSR
KA2KGP, Tom, 5 fpqso=7 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=5 total=105
What a crazy night. So much QRM form RTTY & SSS that I barely heard the grunts & squeels from the pigs out there.
Only 7 piggies in my log. Nasty conditions & QRM. Rig: IC-7000 at 5w. into G5RV up 25 ft. in high winds here in the WNY pigpen. 73 to all us pigs.
W0DCX, Dave, 5W fpqso=5 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=4 total=64
Thanks for the bacon. Especially the Canadian bacon.
VA3NU, Larry, 5 fpqso=5 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=4 total=60
40M was not too bad tonite but had to dodge RTTY and then SST activity.
IC7300 into a 40M EFHW at 25'.
n0mii, Jeff, 5 fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=4 total=40
Sandwiched between RTTY and SST :-) but still a fun sprint! Think this was my first Run for the Bacon. Will be back. Oink Oink!
ab9ca/5, Dave, 5w fpqso=2 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=3 total=21
Limited by antenna tonight. Was only on 80 and there for only a while. Thanks to those who heard me. Dave ab9ca/5
AG4CC, Karen, 5 fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=18
K2 into 58' wire with 9:1 unun
K1LB, Woody, 5 watts fpqso=2 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=12
Thanks gents in OK and GA on 20m. If I could score points from working RFI, I'd be all set! Thanks everyone and 72's, Woody in the Silver state.
AL7JK, John, 5w fpqso=1 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=1 spc=2 total=8
Didnt have any luck on 20 mtrs, my signal was louder in Japan than in the lower 48, 40 mtrs opened up the last 30 min or so. Worked KF7WNS & W7SOM, thanks for digging into the noise floor for my weak signals! 73 to all, C U on the bands. de AL7JK
WB0CFF, Carl Gansen, 5 fpqso=1 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=1 total=3
I had other things going on tonight. I did make a quick sweep of 40M and heard/worked Jody, K3JZD and heard nobody else.
K0LAR, Scott, 5 fpqso=0 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=0 total=0
I missed the whole thing due to the time change. I guess I will try next month.
