The 2012 edition of the Texas QSO Party rolls this weekend with 19 mobiles
and 46 fixed stations teaming up to put all 254 counties from Anderson to
Zavalla on the air with a good mix of SSB and CW. Take a look at the
coverage map and other info on the website www.txqp.net to see
who is going to be on from where and what modes they'll be operating.

Rules of engagement: See the website www.txqp.net

Session 1: Saturday 9/29 1400 UTC- Sunday 9/30 0200 UTC
                   (Saturday 9am -9pm CDT)
Session 2: Sunday 9/30 1400 UTC - 2000 UTC
                  (Sunday 9am - 3pm CDT)

Send paper logs to:
         TQP Committee,
         24415 Deep Meadow Dr
         Tomball, TX 77375

Email logs to: no5w.chuck at gmail.com

Note that both of the above addresses are new for this year so make sure
you double check before sending your log. Logs are due October 31.

Here's an opportunity to see if you can work more than 200 counties in a
single weekend. It's only been done by a handful, the all-time leader being
K4OJ who worked all 254 way back in time, and in recent years only
WA3HAE(227), KB9OWD(217), N5LZ(213), KV8Q(213), WA6KHK(212), VE3KZ(210),
and K0DEQ(200) have reached the 200 county level. So tune in to the Texas
QSO Party this weekend and give it your best shot at making the "Lonestar
200 Club".
