hello fro Alabama, USA!
« on: December 28, 2013, 17:05:23 UTC »
I wanted to introduce myself to the group.  My name is Randy Bright, AK4QK and my QTH is Jacksonville, AL USA.  I have been an amateur radio op for around 3 years now and interested in QRP almost all that time.  My main QRP rig is a KX3 fed by a 204' G5RV  for base use.  I have a variety of random wire, end fed, magnetic loop and vertical antennas for portable use.  I also have a FT817nd that I use for QRP.  I'm looking forward to participating in the group!

Hello, Randy, and nice to meet you via the site. 

Can we set up a schedule to work each other on 80 meters?  I have a small QRPp rig that I would like to work you on and I would think that a 2XQRP contact on 80 at this time of the year would be a breeze. I would be using battery power and a 144 foot long doublet feed with TV twin lead (300 ohm) and a tuner.

My little transmitter is crystal controlled and I have the following frequencies available:

3.579 MHz

3.560 MHz

3.561 MHz

3.480 MHz

3.575 MHz

Could we work out a schedule for 80 meters to make a contact soon?
