7 Area QSO Party




Greetings from the Flying Pigs of Clarksville Tennessee… We are in the field with the 7 th. Area QSO party. We were lucky to have our tail gate event moved back a week and that allowed us to get a little air time in the field. This year we tried to get some new blood involved. Our normal operation was from the Tail Gate Party that our local radio club (C.A.T.S. Clarksville Amateur Transmitting Society) puts on. This year the tail gate party was on a different day so our time frame was open. The 7 th. Area QSO Party is always fun and this year we decided to go to one of our favorite operating locations here in Clarksville, Fort Defiance. Fort Defiance is a spot that has plenty of room and is centrally located for the local hams in the area.
We started out by trying to gather some new hams to CW. We were happy to have several who were interested in coming out and some who wanted to get on the air.
We always start by going over to Mc Donald’s on Riverside Dr. here in Clarksville to get fortified with some hot grub and then it is off to the Fort to set up in the parking area. We use the overflow parking area at the Fort so that we don’t get into anyone’s way. Doc-NV4T, Terry-N5HOT, Jim-KT4FQ, Vince-KK4DYU, Richard-K4BLE, Mike-KG4MSR and I (John-KM6NN AKA: WA4PIG) all met up at Mc Donald’s and after a short meal we headed out to set up before it became hot enough to fry an egg on the pavement.
We made our way to the parking area of Fort Defiance and started putting out our tables, radios, and antennas. This trip we decided to put up canopy to protect us from the sun.
Mike and Richard set about putting up one leg of the OCF antenna and quickly got the throw line caught in the trees. They took over after I missed the limbs I was trying to hit….. It was fun watching some real experts at work….
While they put up the antenna Terry and I put up the canopy… now that actually took four of us to do but we got the ball rolling by getting it out of the bag… After the canopy was up we unfolded the tables and set up the power supply and assorted equipment to get on the air.
We always try to get Doc to make the first contact and he did not let us down…. K7WP- in Arizona, John was in the log. We started on twenty meters but soon changed to fifteen. Fifteen did not seem to be active so we went back to twenty meters and started mowing them down. While I was working Mike watched with anticipation. I could tell he wanted to operate. I made several contacts, then Terry jumped in and did the same. We could tell that Mike wanted to get on the air. We were more than happy to get him up and running. His code, on both receive and transmit, is a little slow but he had no problem using Terry’s straight key and the K3. The radio did a fine job of decoding the CW. With our assistance Mike started making contacts one after the other. He was able to make six contacts in no time flat. Between the whole gang we made fifteen contacts. Mike had that look in his eyes that can only come from getting on the air during a QSO party or contest. That was worth a million dollars…. The heat finally got to us and we closed down about 1630Z. When we finished, Mike had that look in his eyes that can only come from getting on the air during a QSO Party or Contest. That look was worth a million dollars. The heat finally got to us and we closed our station about 1630Z. What a day…. Thanks for coming along with us and we hope to see you on the air… 72 from the whole Flying Pig gang of Clarksville Tennessee…. Oink Oink
