The Minnesota QSO Party is only a few days away! 
This increasingly popular QSO party runs this coming Saturday, Feb 4th from 
 1400Z to 2400Z.  A hallmark of MNQP is a large , dedicated corp  of 
mobiles roving all 87 counties in the state.  This year,  14  mobile teams are 
signed up - most of which will be equipped with APRS for easy  tracking.  Check 
out the Rover Tracking Site at:

All Mobile Stations" link to help you track them  through state on 
Saturday.  New this year is participation by ARES stations  throughout the state.  
Listen for those signing "ARES" as their name.
There's lots a ways to win in this fun event.  Besides certificates  and 
plaques, the top 20 scores from outside of Minnesota will receive a special  
gift package of Minnesota Premium Wild Rice.
