I created an IOWA QSO PARTY tool that will help operators determine when the 
mobile stations will activate each county. This is a visual aide created from 
the itineraries posted to the mobile website. 

Download the Excel workbook from here: http://tinyurl.com/yzwaezb

Five mobiles posted an itinerary and will cover 75 of the 99 Iowa counties 
tomorrow. The workbook lists the counties alphabetically in a column and the 
contest timeline across the horizontal axis in 5 minutes increments. It looks 
similar to a player piano roll, with the mobiles represented by colored bars 
(the "notes")! This tool shows graphically when to expect a particular county 
to be activated and which mobile callsign to be listening for.

Good luck to everyone in the first annual Iowa QSO Party...
