The Alabama Contest Group is proud to announce the 5th consecutive 
running  of the Alabama QSO Party (AQP) on the first weekend of 
June (4th and 5th this year).  

The AQP dates back to as early as 1963 when Governor George C. 
Wallace signed all the certificates for the winning and high scoring 
participants.  The AQP dates back prior to this but I have not been 
able to find any documentation on previous activities.

For 2011 we have a full slate of awards that includes 24 Plaques for 
entries both inside and outside of Alabama.  There will be Certificates 
for high score entries both inside and outside of Alabama.  Last year 
we issued over 125 certificates. 

Rules, past results and information are at currently shown at  

"County Activity" continues to grow.  Even though we have/are facing 
very high gas prices, you will find that there are 11 mobiles that have 
committed to providing CW and PH QSOs (perhaps both)  to those 
that participate in the AQP in 2011.  Several of these mobile will be 
from Florida, Tennessee and Georgia as well as Alabama mobile.  We 
definitely appreciate the help from our neighbors.  

Collectively these mobiles will be providing contacts in over 125 county 
locations.  Additionally, we have many fixed stations that will also be 
passing out tons of QSOs from Alabama's counties.  There are 
several Alabama local club stations that will also be active again this 
year.  We have commitment from a couple of college radio clubs as 

As you prepare for the beginning of the CQ WPX CW this weekend, 
on behalf of the men and women of the Alabama Contest Group we 
wish you the best of luck in this world event.  After the smoke settles 
from WPX perhaps you will find a little time to join us in the Alabama 
QSO Party next Saturday, Jun 4th.
