I received a message today from the Ontario Folks about their Ontario
QSO Party on April 20/21. This jogged the (lack of) grey matter
between my ears, and reminded me that we have the Michigan QSO Party
coming up on April 20, from 1600Z, until April 21, at 0359Z. That's
noon to midnight Saturday, EDT on Saturday, April 20.
I'd encourage any and all in Michgian who have a HF station to operate
during this contact. If you have a club station, gather a bunch and
operate as Multi-Operator, either single or Multi Station.
I'm planning and annual QRP-Dxpedition to a "fairly rare" county which
has a non-existent or no record for QRP fixed station operation.
Looking around, I found that Ionia County is a nice choice, right next
door to Kent County. I'll be operating a few miles south of Saranac
with my "mighty five watts" on both SSB and CW. Please look for me,
I'll be running with the QRP Amateur Radio Club International Club
Station Call K6JSS/IONI.
Please "talk up" MiQP at your next club meeting in April. Also, ask
your fellow hams to join in the contest. Lettuce make MiQP 2013 the
biggest and best ever!
