Greetings contesters...

The 2011 MnQP will be on the air for the full 10 hours, starting at 
14:00 UTC, tomorrow. You are bound to hear a lot of "racket" from us up 
here in the frozen wasteland they call Minnesota! There will be at least 
13 mobiles and more than 50 fixed stations who promise to make this a 
memorable experience!

Check out the MWA web site and select the MnQP menu.  www.w0aa.org  You 
will find an interactive Activity Map that provides APRS tracking, as 
well as the mobile routes painted on top of our state map. Counties are 
color coded to indicate expected level of activity. Red ones will need 
closer attention so you don't miss the opportunity to get it logged.

You will also find a menu of county names and their 3-letter 
abbreviations... click one, an information bubble will pop up on to map 
to show you where it's located. It will also show you all the mobile, 
rover, and fixed stations that will operate there. In addition, you are 
going to find their estimated window of activity and what mode(s) to 
expect each station to be using.

The MnQP rules encourage you to spot all the MN stations (sorry, no 
self-spotting allowed though). It's a PARTY! And parties are supposed to 
be fun! We hope you have fun working all of us tomorrow!
