The NAQRP straight key Sprint



“ NAQRP straight key Sprint “


This contest was held on September 19th, from 8:30PM to 10:30PM (EDT).   I was not planning to join the contest and I was so happened to listen to the 40m band with the SW-40, Small Wonder Labs kit I built.


The SW-40 transceiver was mentioned in my blog on August, 2007 with pictures in the album on August 30, 2007.  It has the power of 2 watts and CW mode only.  My antenna was a loop tuned at 7Mhz CW band.  The following contacts were made.  I was amazed with the 2 watts generated by the SW-40 reaching about 2500 KM to 3000 KM of distance.

K6XT      CO.

N4BP      FL.

K0EVZ     NM.

KE4I       AL.


I was happy with the result although I was not submitting the log for the contest.

NAQRP straight key Sprint


私はコンテストには、あまり出ませんが、919日夜9時ごろ、私の組んだSW-40 QRP

CWトランシーバーで40mバンドを聞いていたら、NAQRPコンテストが行われていました。 SW-40は私のブログ20078月のページで述べましたし、写真もこのブログの830日のアルバムにありますので、見てください。


私の装備は:  Small Wonder Labs社のSW-40 CW QRP トランシーバー 送信出力 2ワット、 アンテナはループアンテナ(地上8メーター)で7MhzのCWバンドに同調をとってあります。  約1時間の間に取れたコンタクトは:


KI4GLH    TN. テネシー州

WC7S      WY. ワイオミング州

K6XT      CO. コロラド州

N4BP      FL. フロリダ州

K0EVZ     NM. ニューメキシコ州

KE4I       AL. アラバマ州


私のQTHからは2500KMから3000KMくらいは離れている局で、私の2ワットでコンタクトが取れ、満足でした。 相手局のCQに対し、私の方から、2ワットで返し、相手方から応答があった時は、気分が良かったです。 この瞬間がQRPの楽しみの一つです。

北米では、QRPコンテストは結構頻繁に行われています。 普通、QRPのコンテストは平日の夜、2時間くらいQRP局は一斉にコンテストに出ると、週末行われる、コンテストとまた違った面白みがあり、少し秩序があるコンテストのように、私には思えます。
