Are you chained to your "QRP KiloWatt"? Have you ever wanted to try
milliWatting but were afraid that it might be too hard, or perhaps too
frustrating; or just plain futile? This Sunday evening the Flying Pigs
Amateur Radio Club International will be holding a special milliWatt Run
For The Bacon! This is your chance to see just exactly what less than a
Watt can do! This challenging, and perhaps eye opening, two hour QRP
CW Sprint, which is open to ALL radio amateurs, will last from 9:00 -
11:00PM EDT (0100-0300 UTC Monday).
It will work EXACTLY like a normal RFTB with one important exception -
you MUST run less that 1 Watt of power!
You may work stations once per band on 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 or 10
Meters. Suggested starting frequencies are 1.812, 3.562, 7.044, 14.062,
21.062, and 28.062 MHz.
The exchange is RST, S/P/C (State, Province, Country) and Flying Pigs
membership number. If you're not a member of the Flying Pigs, and would
like to be; then please click on the "membership" hyperlink on
Otherwise, non-members can just use
their output power figure.
You can report your score via the Autolog page which can be found at :
or you can mail your logs to the address given on the Autolog page. The
deadline for logs is August 12th at 2400 UTC.
Hope to catch you on the air Sunday evening - who will be named the "Top
Piglet of the Sty"?
