      > of this event would like to see as many Michigan stations on the air as
      > possible. It is the activity of the Michigan stations that will make
      > this event a success. This event, like other state QSO parties has seen

      > within your club? Are there others in your club that would consider a
      > mini expedition for a portable operation in one of the Michigan counties
      > with minimal activity?? The name of the game is to have fun and make
      > Michigan "Radio Active" on April 19th. Hope to hear you on the air!
