I like working state QSO parties, and last year, I had a lot of fun working this one……Dan
From Mark, WA0MHJ:
The eleventh annual Minnesota QSO Party is less two weeks away! There will be plenty of action with more than a dozen rovers traveling the state, along with fixed stations to ensure every opportunity for all of Minnesota’s 87 counties to be worked. We look forward to having you join us this year.
All of the latest information can be found by following the links from the MNQP home page. Check out the mobile coverage map for this years QSO Party. Also there you will find an APRS link, the mobile tracking tools provided by K0RC. An Excel workbook that provides detailed individual mobile routes, showing expected ETA and durations for each county can be found here.
For those of you who do not currently have a logging program, and wish to use one, a version of MNQP logger may be downloaded for free.
ARRL has declared 2009 the Year of the State QSO Party. Details of the rules and certificates are posted on the ARRL web site below. MNQP is a great way to start working towards this award.
