I can beat THAT!
I operated QRP portable in the 1993 June VHF QSO Party CONTEST. I made 24
QSO's in 17 grids on 144 MHz, and 7 QSO's in 6 grids on 432 MHz. Total
score was 874.
I got a certificate from the ARRL, "first place QRP-portable, Illinois."
Turns out I was the ONLY QRP-portable in 9-land!
And I almost didn't send in my log!
Just shows to go you...
