Run for the Bacon: january 2011 - 2011/01/18 13:16 Hi All!

Since JP (VA2SG) and me will try again the FYBO (Freeze Ypur ... Off) this year I decided that I had to make some QRP contests to test the QRP station.

The Flying Pigs QRP Club organize each third sunday of the month their famous Run For The Bacon contest. As you can see they are very good at promoting the main theme of the club wich is the pig or more precisely the flying pig. The contest run from 21h00 to 23h00 EST.

The exchange is either the Flying Pigs member's number or output power.

So I made contacts on 80m only with 4 fellow Flying Pigs and 2 non-members in 4 different S/P/C for a total of 56 points.

I was connected to my expedition 80m dipole on a 16' extension mast.

So the Ft-817 is in good shape and ready to be used in the next FYBO.
