qrparci_350I will attend on May 18th – 22nd for the second time the Four Days In May event held by the QRP ARCI – American Radio Club International. A nice event to meet friends that have something particular in common… working QRP.

Again this year, the schedule is quite interesting. Thursday will be the conferences day. Eric Swartz, WA6HHQ from Elecraft will do the first conference. Last year, Eric was also invited to do the 1st conference when he finally announced a new K3S!

Many other interesting conferences will be held that day from 8 a.m. thru 5 p.m.

Here the schedule (may change without notice)

◾Opening Address (8.15am) 
◾Eric Swartz, WA6HHQ (8.20am) Elecraft
◾Scott Cowling, WA2DFI (9.00am) WSPR and the Raspberry Pi
◾Guy Hamblen, N7UN (10.00am) Summits On The Air ‘Ham Radio with Altitude’
◾Paul Darlington, M0XPD (11.15am) Occam’s Scrip – the minimalist measurement mindset

◾Grayson Evans, TA2ZGE/KJ7UM (3.15pm)
◾Rex Harper, W1REX (4.15pm) The Worlds’ Biggest Buildathon

Many other activities will also be held on Thursday and Friday nights. The famous “vendors evening” on Thursday. People will be able see and buy, before the Hamvention, all kind of products related to the QRP world.

And also the “grand banquet” on Saturday night with many prizes and awards! I hope to win another one this year! 🙂

Hope to see you there !
