Don't miss the Georgia QSO Party this weekend. Saturday 1800-0400Z and Sunday
We have worked hard to make this version of the GQP enjoyable for all. We have
commitments to have all 159 Georgia counties on the air (a first) with many
mobile/rover operations. We even have some "hired guns" coming in from out of
state - NY4N and W3DYA. Regulars like K4BAI and N4PN, who activate lot of
counties will also be active.
We are trying to make this year's version enjoyable for everyone by striving to
have a high level of activity to keep you interested. In exchange for your hard
work we are offering some special prizes
for the stations that work the most GA counties. (in addition to our plaques)
Outside of Georgia
1st place - Most GA Counties worked (by a outside of GA Station) - A box of
Elberta peaches from Lane Packing. One of the largest packers in the state.
Shipping in late May/June when in season
2nd place - GA Gift Basket
3rd Place - GA Gift Basket
4th Place - One pound bag of GA pecans

Sometimes being in a border state for a state QSO party is a big disadvantage.
Everyone is having fun on 20 meters while those signals from GA are skipping
over you. We haven't forgotten about you guys. We have encouraged all our
mobiles to try 40 meters from the counties they visit. Also, see the special
prize that will be offered to keep you motivated.
Top 5 scores from stations located in one of the 5 states bordering GA -
Old Fashioned Brittle - Good Ole' Fashioned Georgia Pecan and Peanut Brittle
See http://gqp.contesting.com/GQPPrizes2.htm for the rules for these prizes.
