Whether you are looking for some Louisiana parishes to fill in your
county hunter log or just enjoy breaking the pileups on mobiles as they
travel around from county to county (parish to parish in LA) there's a
full cup of gumbo waiting for you this weekend with at least 6 mobiles
roving the byways and bayous of the Pelican state.
KU5B, K5END, N5NA, W3DYA, KB6UF, NO5W, and possibly others will be out
and about with plans to activate the entire slate of 64 parishes. To see
details of these plans point your browser to http://laqp.eqth.net/ where
you'll find parish overlay maps showing whose going where, in what
order, and the routes they will be taking. Several of the stations will
also have APRS capability for your viewing pleasure.
The party starts at 1500 UTC Saturday and runs until 0300 UTC Sunday.
Detailed party rules and guidelines are on the LAQP website at
http://www.qsl.net/kd5wdy/LAQSO_/laqso_.html. Look for us low in the
band (020-030), if the activity from the weekly major RTTY contest is
too strong on the guideline frequencies.
Laissez les bon temps roulez, ya'll. Hope to see you there.
