When are the rest of the QRP gang showing up?

WHAT: The Central Florida QRP Group is hosting the First GatorCon gathering of QRP operators. This is an opportunity to meet others that share our interests in low power ham radio, portable operation, battery and alternative power for emergency communications, homebrew equipment, being in the great outdoors, and fun! Bring your rig for show and tell times and to operate (no electric mains available, so bring your own battery) We will have drawing for a “outdoor” prize and some special antennas for you to try.  SMOKETESTING starts at 1000 EDT, come watch the fun!  HISTORY and new CON ACTIVITY pages posted!

WHEN: July 11, 2009 is the date! We’ll start setup at 0830 EDT and operating should begin by 1000 EDT. We’ll officially end at 1800 EDT but you are welcome to stay if you desire. Park closes at 2000 EDT.

WHERE: PAVILLION #5,  at Moss Park, 12901 Moss Park Road, Orlando, FL. This is in SE Orlando area just off SR 417 and Narcoosee Road.  The park is an Animal Preserve and Bird Sanctuary and is full of great options for the whole family.
