There may be some of you who can't open and view the workbook. I have 
created web pages of the four worksheets of interest. Probably the most 
useful of them will be the one named CHART, although the other three provide 
different views of the same mobile activity.

Click on the URL below and then click on any of the new files you find 
there. The page will load into your browser window for viewing. Be sure to 
scroll around (down) because these worksheets have more information than the 
screen can display.

2010 Minnesota QSO Party participants...

I uploaded the latest version of the MnQP County Coverage Excel workbook 


Take a look at the worksheet named "CHART". It shows mobile coverage on a 
5-minute timeline, left to right. When two mobiles activate the same county, 
this overlap is highlighted in yellow. The other green tabs show the mobile 
itineraries in a variety of different tables. The yellow tabs are the 
individual estimated itineraries posted by the mobile operators.

If you have any trouble downloading this file, please let me know. This is a 
new web site for me and there was one instance where a file became scrambled 
for some unknown reason.

For stations outside MN working the QSO Party this weekend (Sat 8 am to 6 pm 
CST), this workbook can help you work a sweep of the 87 counties in our 
state. The mobiles are concentrating on the less populated areas so you will 
notice Ramsey and Washington counties are not covered. This is the St. Paul 
area and those counties will be covered by many fixed stations.

The MnQP rules can be found here:  http://www.w0aa.org

Most mobiles will be equipped with APRS. You can track them in real-time 
here:  http://www.w0aa.org/roverMaps.htm

Good luck and I hope to put you into my log!
