NEQP Update

Legendary callsign W1FH will live again during the New England QSO Party TNX to Trustee Bob, W1YRC, and Will, K6ND, who will host the operation.  Old time DXers will recognize Charlie Mellen’s famous W1FH callsign at the head of the Honor Roll for decades.  See QRZ for more W1FH history.

W1FH will be a multi-single operation at the well equipped K6ND (& K6NDV) Mendon, MA QTH — just over the state line from Cumberland.  NB1U will also be in the chair possibly making a serious challenge to perennial multi winner K1TTT.  Will is looking for more operators.  With W1AN in Ledyard, CT, this makes two CTRI multi stations that will be open for anyone in the club to operate who does not now have a station.  Contact John or Will if you wish to join in the multi fun.

CTRI is out to set the NEQP club record.  The focus is to get ALL club members QRV — whether from home or from a multi station — with big scores, medium scores, little scores all.  Especially if you’ve been inactive of late, CTRI wants YOU to heed the call.  See the post: “NEQP: 1 Million or Bust” for details.

CTRI now has several members with out-of-district callsigns, e.g. K6ND.  This may be a disadvantage in NEQP.  Members also hold a bunch of “club” 1-land calls that may be borrowed for NEQP.  W1xx [at] cox [dot] net is the clearing house for both calls made available by trustees and stations seeking 1-land calls.

If you have not as yet advised the club’s contest manager (same e-mail address as above) of your NEQP “QRV-ness,” he anxiously awaits to hear from you.  NEQP is May 7 -8.  Make your plans now.

73 & GL!
