SLQS Celebrates 25th Anniversary

On November 14th, the members of SLQS celebrated our club's 25th anniversary. The event was held at Syberg's Restaurant in Maryland Heights. Thirteen members attended the event.

To help celebrate our anniversary, the club provided a few special gifts for the members. Each received a new ball cap embroidered with "St. Louis QRP Society", our "peanut whistle" logo, and the legend "25 Years - 1987-2012". New name badges with the "25 Years" annotation were also presented. Special thanks to John Lonigro and Keith Arns for making these surprises for the club.

Finally, the special QRP operators were provided by the XYL of Chuck K6QKL. These figurines of "Mr. Peanut" are the original "peanut whistles", recalling our newsletter's name "The Peanut Whistle" representing low power.

Annual Tailgate Sale Just Ahead!

Coming in September! The St. Louis QRP Society is holding its annual Tailgate Sale the evening of Wednesday, September 18, 2013. From 6:00 p.m until everyone goes home.

We will be at our usual location - the south east parking lot of Florissant Valley Community College - just south of the new Engineering Building.

Never a charge to sell or browse. Bring gear to sell and money to buy more or better yet - do both! Plan to talk a lot about QRP and homebrew for starters or just visit for a spell.

Brats off the grill & sodas for the hungry and thirsty at minimal cost. Antennas and radios available for those wishing to get on the air or bring your own rig along.

E-mail for driving directions or more info.

Hope you can be with us.

Dave Gauding, NF0R
