Hot off the press - from Paul, NA5N, and Jan NØQT:
Countdown to the 16th Annual Zombie Shuffle - A unique on-the-air
event exclusively for QRP Zombies
The whole world seems to be getting full of zombies. But - we’re the
originals!!! QRP Zombies since 1998.
WHY ZOMBIE SHUFFLE?: Because Zombies don’t sprint.
THE ZOMBIE SHUFFLE is an annual event for QRPers to get on the air, have some fun, and rack up a really big score in spite of what your CW or operating skills may be. It is normally held on the Friday before
Halloween to avoid the CW SS contest. It is administered strictly
through the QRP-L mailing list.
Date: Friday, October 25, 2013, from sundown (Suggestion - 6 p.m. Local time) to Midnight.
Rules? (or, in case of Zombies - Suggestions?) Dig here:

Portable delta loop feedpoint/insulator & balun. Balun is in the pink container. Coax will attach where red & green wires are on front bottom, and feed through the balun which is plugged in on the backside, and then to the antenna wire (green) which is fed through some of the mounting holes on the sides for strain relief.
The arrangement should provide flexibility to allow other wire antenna types and baluns (2:1, 4:1, etc.) to be used. The other mounting holes will be used for support cord. Apex of the delta loop and other corner will be set/hung by large clothing buttons.
Perhaps an expensive approach if you had to purchase the binding-post wall plate, but I was given a bagful by a fellow ham, so the price (for me) was right.

It seems every day now another Flying Pigs QRP member is announcing the arrival of his 'Flying Pig Rig' on the FP reflector. The concept for the kit is to provide members 'no-brainer' high quality 5W CW transceivers - all running on the exact same frequency - 7030.7. Seems like a great way to foster increased interaction between members. As I said, ‘no brainer’ - no variables, no searching involved. Just flip it on and start calling. No doubt at some point I’ll add this kit to my arsenal during the year.
