K1USN Radio Club QRV for “Freeze Your Butt Off”

“Pi” Pugh, K1RV, writes on the K1USN mailing list:
Tomorrow we plan to operate outside at K1USN during the FYBO (Freeze Your Butt Off) [Winter QRP Sprint, 1400Z-2400Z, February 1, 2020]. I plan to bring my KX3 and will connect to one of the regular K1USN antennas. Can someone bring a large thermometer so that we can display the current outside temp?
All are  welcome to participate and to bring along your QRP portable radio/antenna to have some fun. As always, the coffee will be hot inside K1USN!
BTW, we usually keep things really simple and just do paper logging!
