Well CQ World Wide DX SSB contest is going on this weekend, but I have been chugging away at completing the logs and uploading videos. The video above is Kishore working a contact. Below you can see Yang and Akshay working as well.

We had a very successful School Club Roundup this year. Below are some of our operating stations. The first graph is total time operating. The second graph is contacts (QSOs) per hour. Finally the last graph shows our activity over the week. We had a total of 905 QSOs to people in 89 different locations (US States, Canadian Providences, or Countries) of which 5 were clubs and 38 identified as schools. It was a very successful week and a lot of club members got on the air for the first time!

I am working on getting a few videos done from the Orlando Mini Maker Faire, but this week another event has my attention. This week is the American Radio Relay League‘s School Club Roundup. The School Club Roundup (SCR) brings the focus to elementary, middle, and high schools plus colleges and universities. The event begins on October 21st (yesterday) and runs until Friday. This is my 3rd SCR operating from the University of Florida. Our club station is W4DFU and we are the Gator Amateur Radio Club. Last year we came in 1st place in the College/University category in the fall and we came in 3rd place in the College/University category for the spring.

We are already out in full force. Check out the video above of us operating yesterday. We have over 200 QSOs! We plan on operating every day this week between 1400 and 1900 EDT from our club station, atop the dental school here at UF. Feel free to give us a shout! We would love to get you in the log! Best of 73s and Good DX!
