Just doing a little research with FQP less than two months away....in the
first two years of its parenting the Florida QSO Party the Florida Contest
Group has been fortunate to activate all of Florida's counties...it was
close last year with a tummy ache almost causing our demise...

I got the following from the county hunter guys web pages...

The County Hunter Web Most Wanted Counties
The following counties are needed by 3 or more people
The numbers in parenthesis indicate number of people needing county

FL : Baker (3), Bradford (3).

...the Killer Bees, eh

Baker is west of Jacksonville

...Bradford is South of there near Gainesville....

Do we have a mobile crew yet for the NE corner of the state????  Any
Georgians motoring South?

If you are going to be operating in the FQP from Florida please check into
the FQP web site listed below and log in your plans...this will better help
us construct our mobile efforts where they are needed!

If you are a Florida Ham who would like to be rare DX for the weekend, or
your club would like information on operating and need some pointers, check
out the website or feel free to contact me!

I will be at the hamfest next weekend in Fort Walton Beach...if you would
like more information on the fastest growing QSO Party look for the guy in
the orange shirt!

Remember, only

48 Days

Until the Florida QSO Party!

Spread the word!
