This Weekend In RadioSport | Tribal Weekend

RadioSport USA | Elecraft QSO Party.
Keyers sound Morse code while voices hail open frequencies and digital modes finalize the connection. The simplest form of human connectivity is the tribe. Elecraft nonetheless has built a community of loyal enthusiasts and its QSO party is an ultimate expression. It expresses one’s connection to the radio, and, in broad terms, to a group sharing a common interest.

The object is fun and why not? One goal is to collect rig serial numbers while logging old friends and making new friends. The event itself is open to everyone “no Elecraft radio required” while logged Elecraft serial numbers count five points and no rig serial number counts three points.

RadioSport USA | Second Class Operator’s Marathon Sprint.
I’m laughing with the let’s not take ourselves too seriously marathon sprint. How can one have a marathon and sprint at the sametime? They can and they are!

The point is, like other events, it is social connection via the airwaves that brings people together. I wonder which is first, our technology connecting with others, or people connecting with technology, in either case, it’s a ham radio tribal weekend.
