Quick QUESTION � If I work stations with /QRP, do I still get credit for contacts made for 365 and other endorsements?

�

Today was not a very productive day due to absolutely horrible Band conditions. The park allowed us to extend our operating time until dusk (19:30 CST) to allow us to make some more contacts.

�

Things improved drastically in the evening and was able to actually work Paula 2 times� once full steam ahead and once while she was QRP. Amazing antenna she has. We operated at 5w the entire day and our batteries work flawlessly through the entire operating period.

�

Rest assured we will be activating MP08 more than once this summer and I will announce those dates as I confirm them with the park. I apologize for not hearing the few of you who noted an attempt was made. Cannot control band conditions and atmospheric noise was horrible with a +9 noise floor. NO voice contacts were made. All contacts came digitally so kudos to the digital operators!!

I'm looking for you. Possibly too close if you're operating on 20M.

Just a FYI� We will be activating Shiloh National Military Park (MP08) or those working NPOTA.

Authorized operating hours are from 1100-1400 CENTRAL or 1600-1900 UTC

I WILL be working PSK-31 for the duration of the 3 hours � or until our batteries run out. I will begin with my KX3 (QRP) rig. If not too successful, I will plug in the TS-480 where I will have the full 100w (will not be running that obviously) available to me.

Please look for me as it should be fun and busy.

FYI also, there will also be VOICE contacts (by another amateur) during the same time period.
