out of state finishers.
We also have 33 plaques (real lumber for your wall!) to award this
year. Thanks to all the sponsors. And, of course, certificates!
W6ZZZ and W0YK have added quite a bit of history and fascinating
statistics to the CQP web site. Take a look.

Club competition continues to be strong - the secret: The club with

N6TV has worked to get all 58 counties on the air - six to go!
So - come join the party, get into the fall contesting season,
and have some fun!
