As previously noted, COOKEN  members will be putting on a two station Licking County OQP effort this year.  It looks like the two will be split  - one CW and one SSB station .  While Licking Co is not exactly rare ( it was about the 11th  most active county in  last years contest)  - we hope to balance both modes, on 80-10.   

Depending on this years success in getting enough operators, targeting rare Ohio counties  might be on the radar for 2011.

I wonder what the ssb - cw mix of qsos was in 2009.  Im guessing it was  heavily tilted to ssb - despite k8MR's ( and others) efforts to the contrary.

Also, Im hoping we get some 15m openings into Europe this year, and maybe even 10m sporadic E, and have taken the liberty to notify friends at the UBA (Belgian Radio Club, similar to ARRL) about the OQP and how it enhances their chances to work new Ohio counties as well. Hopefully they will pass the word.

So keep an ear out for ONs' and other Europeans, as well.
