Fwd: Ohio QSO Party - Saturday, August 22
- The Ohio QSO Party is great fun, even for out of state entries. Hope
many West Michigan hams can try it out. Best bet to work Ohio is 40
metres during daylight and 80/75 metres in late afternoon and into the
73 de n8xx Hg
==== attached Message from K8MR ================
I'd appreciate it if you could pass along this information about the
upcoming Ohio QSO Party to your local contest clubs and state qso party
lists and reflectors.
As mentioned below, there has been some confusion arising from a local
dispute up here, so we do want to get things cleared up to the outside
Thanks a lot!

I'd like to invite all of you to join us for the Ohio QSO Party, on
Saturday, August 22. The OQP runs from 1600z to 0400z Sunday. 80
through 10 meters, phone and CW, with multipliers counting on both modes
(for a total of 88x2 = 176 possible from outside Ohio).
Full info is available at http://www.ohqp.org THIS IS A CHANGE
FROM LAST YEAR.
We in the Mad River Radio Club, the sponsor of the OQP since 1999, for
various reasons decided to move the administration of the OQP to this
new site from the old one (www.oqp.us). The holder of old site has
tried to take over the running of the OQP from this old site, which
remains online. So please be sure to change any old bookmarks you may
have had. We regret the confusion arising from this, please bear with us!
We in Ohio have likely supported your state's QSO party in the past - so
we hope to have lots of your guys showing up in our logs on August 22
(and indeed in past years we have seen very good activity from many of you!)
See you on Saturday, August 22 !

President, Mad River Radio Club
