Our 2012 Spring QRP IN THE PARK event & Fox Hunt was a
huge success and it was nice to see many new faces out there
and sharing the afternoon with us. If you missed this event,
We hope you can make the next one. Keep watching this
reflector for the summer QRP schedule.
We certainly had a wide variety of antennas, rigs, and
operating modes in play during the event and had some nice
DX contacts to boot. As always our digital operators seem to
have the edge when it came to working DX!
Here is a short list of some of the stations worked by our
VIGILANT QRP'ers for the event.
Our fox hunting combo at the park proved to be a great
success with many new hams trying it out for the very first
time. Thanks to Mike W8DER and Tom K8TB for putting in the
extra effort and setting up the hidden transmitters. It was
We want to thank all who donated extra food, soda, desserts,
chips, hot dogs, buns, etc, and manning the grill, with out
your help these events would not be possible.
