Las Cruces QRSS Mafia Attacks Pensacola!

OM Dave, WA5DJJ, writes to us about a different kind of SKN -- I guess this would be SLOWWWWWW Key Night!
Dear Bill,

Hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year.

I agree that Ashhar Farhan is one of the guys that I also admire
mainly because he is trying a valid approach to get amateurs on
the air. His designs are easy to construct, use simple common
parts and work well. I got really tickled when he said that he
kept his parts in two plastic tool boxes. I have so much I have
a hard time keeping mine in a garage with some spillage over to
the storage shed. But alas, I need to downsize.

Keep up the good work with SolderSmoke podcast. You are reaching
a lot of folks and also making a difference.

Our Las Cruces QRSS Mafia had a New Years 2012 on the air celebration
on 30 meter this New Years. We got 14 transmitters on the air and
managed to jam the Pensacola Snapper with so many signals that Bill
couldn't count them all. I attached the sheet I sent W4HBK to
mark the event. There wasn't much room left but others still got
in the holes. We did have a lot of fun plotting the event and getting
the 15 guys installing antennas, building transmitters, and programming
keyers. So, there was a lot of activity here to do the deed.

Anyway, Keep the soldering hot and the projects going. I like your
rebuild of your 17M transmitter. Nice project.

Take care and have fun in 2012.
