Tres de Mayo is QRP To The Field.

Spanish explorers gave the St. Andrew Bay near Panama City Florida its present name in the 1500's as they explored the northeast gulf coast. I am planning to operate QRP TO The Field on Tres de Mayo or May 3rd. I will be headed to Sandy Point at St Andrews State Park on the bay. I like Sandy Point because good deal of the azimuth is salt water. The Spanish tie in will put me in the QTTF Fiesta Category. See See this link for all the rules. The RaDAR Community will be having their Monthly On The Air Meetup to coincide with QRP To The Field.

The weather looks promising for Saturday. I hope to be on the air 1400 - 2000 zulu. I anticipate being around 14.060 and checking 21.060 and 28.060 for CW and 14.285 and checking 21.385 and 28.385 on SSB. I will do a CQ RaDAR on the hour and CQ RaDAR SSB on the half flush out RaDAR Operators. The band will vary. 

I am looking forward to many QSOs and will enjoy the outdoors. Join in if you can!
