Invites You To
*** The Nebraska QSO Party ***
April 26th & 27th
1700 zulu Saturday to 1700 zulu Sunday
No point in telling you about this too early, right?
Yes, we're way behind on everything at NQP Headquarters, but we're getting
caught up now. Hey, I didn't get my FQP Certificate until just last week!
So we're not alone. It's been quite a year all around, hasn't it?
For complete NQP rules, details, paperwork & last year's results go to:
There are 93 counties in Nebraska but, as usual, don't look for all of them
to be active. We just don't have that many hams here, and even fewer
contesters; but you Sweepstakes guys already knew that. If you live near
Nebraska and have mobile HF capabilities, come on over and have some fun
Special Stations to look out for:
NI0DX - Might be active on 10 meters Saturday afternoon from Camp Cedars
Boy Scout Camp in Saunders County, and Sunday morning on the drive home
from camp. Let's pray for propagation on 10!
W7DRA - Mike from Oregon will be operating portable again this year (even
though we misplaced his log last year--SORRY MIKE! But he's coming back
anyway! Forgiveness is good. ;^))
K0AIR - Strategic Air Command Memorial Club may be operating again from
Douglas County's EOC underground.
And rumor mill has it that the famous K0USA may also be on the air so
everyone can ask what the heck "AKSARBEN" ARC means! (hint: get a mirror)
With FQP & NQP going on at the same time, work all of the Nebraska &
Florida stations that you can then sort them afterward and send in all the
logs. Just Call "CQ N-F QP" or maybe F-N QP! Just work it! See you in
