The Adventure Radio Society Spartan Sprint for February took place last night. It’s a two-hour monthly event that happens on the first Monday every month. This one has been going on for a long time and while participation isn’t as great now as it once was, there are a core group of QRPers who have kept it together these many years.

I usually forget about it until it’s too late but last night I participated from the shack using the KX3, five watts, and dipole at thirty-feet.

I managed three contacts, all on 40 meters.

  • W5QLF TX 5W
  • WB5BKL LA 5W
  • N0TA CO 5W

Log and soapbox submitted. I’ve put this one on my calendar because I’d prefer to not forget it again. It’s exactly the kind of radio activity I enjoy, a short sprint. I’d like to get back to operating this one from the field during warmer weather. CQ SP next month?
