Interesting blog post

News from friendly sources tonight:

As pointed out to me by my friend Drew W2OU - this was posted Sunday on the "DC to White Light" blog:

The following was posted to QRP-L by Hank N8XX today:


The Stew Perry Top Band Challenge is this coming Weekend. It starts at 1500Z December 29 and ends at 1500Z December 30. One may operate a maximum of 14 hours during the 24 hour period.

The call 160 meters "Top Band" but I figure this will need adjusting, since we will soon have an allocation around 500 KHz, or 600 meters. But, for now, let's let sleeping lies dog (or some converse thereof).

Details of this event may be found at

The scoring is a bit convoluted, and the scoring team does all the scoring, so I'm not worrying about how this is done.

BUT, it DOES have a QRP category, and one gets a multiplier for operating with <5 considerably.="considerably." even="even" may="may" p="p" platform="platform" scoring="scoring" the="the" watts="watts" which="which">
So, why not crank up the wavelength to about 166.666 ⅔ and give it "ye olde college try."

Thanks to both Drew and Hank for some interesting stuff.
