Hopefully some of you have saved something from this past weekend to participate in the
Alabama QSO Party on Jun 2nd.
This event is sponsored by the Alabama Contest Group.
We have a brand new awards program with certificates and plaques.
It looks like we may have all 67 counties active during this year event--been a very long time
