The FOBB is a contest put on by the Adventure Radio Society. These are the people who also host the spartan sprint once a month. The idea is to get portable and operate your radio. The FOBB and NJQRP Club Skeeter Hunt are the events that I actually learned radio doing!! I’ll never forget the first contest I took part in, I worked Greg Lane N4KGL. How he copied anything I sent and the fact I copied anything back is a miracle! But. . . I still follow Greg on Google+ and we trade emails occasionally. He has been a very helpful elmer over the years. You’ll hear him in my video! (This is actually just a bizarre coincidence! I happened to hit record right before he responded to me.
JD (K5HH) has been showing me up by Vlogging. I doubt I become a Vlogger, BUT. . . I did make a video of the contest and figured I would share with you. Check it out, share with your friends. Tell me what I can do to make it more useful for the upcoming Skeeter Hunt in the comments below!

I’m a relatively new ham. Got my license, joined a club and I’m having fun! I enjoy CW, pedestrian mobile, backpacking, and I dream of building radios at some point. At present I have a wife and daughters so my building time is limited.
