The 2010 Minnesota QSO Party is just a week away! This is the twelfth year of sponsorship for the Minnesota Wireless Association and we expect yet another strong turnout of activity. We look forward to having you join us this year.
Please check out the MNQP home page for the latest information. Follow the links to MNQP from:
We should have at least ten mobiles traveling the state, and along with fixed and portable stations, we expect 100 percent coverage of all 87 Minnesota counties. There are plenty of tools to assist in locating the activity, including maps, spreadsheet tools, and APRS equipped mobiles.
There is a link to some of the free and available logging programs which support MNQP also.
We are excited this year to have a first time MNQP mobile participant designated as a Mobile GOTA ("Get on the Air") station, equipped with the assistance of some club members.
We have also encouraged through the Minnesota Emergency coordinator to activate some stations around the state as an exercise for HF preparedness, and also an opportunity to have some fun!
Please drop me an e-mail if you have any questions.
Mark your calendars and join the fun!
73's, Mark - WA0MHJ
