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.

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...
