and Summary Sheet
The first Zombie Shuffle in years that shows what QRP can do with with good propagation. 15M
was open for some and 20M was "long" until well after sundown, giving QRPers a chance to work from NH and FL to HI
and AK. A fun day on the bands, indeed. The "CQ BOO" on 20M and 40M almost sounded like Field Day at times. You still got your crummy
band bonus, however.
We had plenty of new stations this year who tried QRP for the first time and were impressed,
and CW Academy students (and others) that accomplished their first CW QSOs ever. Thanks to all who accommodated the QRS stations to
help them have an enjoyable first few QSOs. Always nice to see new CW ops and experience the joy of QRP on the Zombie Shuffle --and of course always fun to work our old QRP Zombie friends as well.
Kudos to our bonus stations.
Quite a few spent many hours on the air passing out those extra points for plenty of high scores. And working Igor, Lurch or Draq.
Just too much fun, the anticipation of what Zombie name you'll hear next ... even if it took a repeat or two. That's a keeper.
Certainly more fun than the "5NN TU" contests. Thanks to all who participated and hope you all had plenty of Zombie fun in one of
the most pointless and silly CW events, and QRP to boot!
