Hi All,

The California QSO Party is this weekend - Oct 2 @ 16Z (12PM EDT).

Check out the county operating plan at:


Bob, N6TV has done another excellent job of filling out the counties
with expeditions and mobiles.  (If you're in CA, and haven't submitted
your county operating plan - please click to:http://cqp.kx7m.net/cqp2004.html
and let us know).

Full rules, awards descriptions, 2003 results, etc can be found at:


Listen for W6OAT/M (+K2RD, AI6V) as he moves county to county.  New serial
numbers, new county designation.  Can you work him in all his county stops?

California stations - Call CQ and listen for the club stations - at least three
are putting out an effort to win the Club competition.

Many stations have spent the week trying out equipment for county expeditions,
determining the best operating position, working on getting a slightly better
location, few more feet of mast, more watts out, etc.  Lot's of interest in
trying to make VHF and 160M contacts this year. 

Should be excellent fun and chance to see the rate meter move up a bit. 

Please join in!
