It's less than two days to the 2004 Ohio QSO Party - this Saturday, August  
28, from 1600z to 0400z August 29 (noon to midnight EDT).
Full rules, information, operating aids, etc., are at the OQP web  site,  
_http://www.oqp.us_ (http://www.oqp.us) 
Exchange serial number and QTH (OH county, or for others  
80 - 10 meters, multipliers by mode. (88 counties x 2 = 176 possible mults  
from outside OH).
A lot of the fun in any state QSO Party involves chasing the "clean  sweep" 
of counties. A state map showing the counties is a big help, to see  the jigsaw 
puzzle pieces fall into place as you work the counties, and to  anticipate 
the mobiles' routes.  An excellent source for such maps  is:
This has county maps for all 50 states; just click on Ohio for an OQP  map.
We will have a great crew of mobiles/rovers covering the entire  state. We 
expect all 88 counties to be on the air. We hope you'll  be there to work them 
on Saturday!

OQP Chairman
