The 16 mobile stations have been fueled up, had their radios and APRS 
checked out, and they have applied a liberal amount of Sun Screen!  
(Well, it's normally 20-below zero this time of the year, but we're 
looking at 40 degree temperatures up here this weekend. That's shorts & 
sweat shirt WX to us!)

There are 41 fixed stations signed up to activate their counties and 
many others will participate in the 2012 MnQP again this year. All 87 
counties are accounted for.

Last minute adjustments have been made to schedules and you can download 
PDF files to help you work toward a sweep. Grab you copy of version 
2.0.6 from here: *http://tinyurl.com/7zf9txu*

Tomorrow morning at *8:00 am CST *Minnesota will be on the air! Track 
the mobiles current position at anytime, using APRS too.


It has been reported that a last minute vehicle change was necessary by 
the *NØIJ & NXØX* team after discovering problems with the drive train. 
Apparently a few critical parts were not located in time for the MnQP 
this year.

Good luck, have fun, and see you tomorrow!
