[OhQP-mail] County Hunters' web site?

Yup, I looked at BROWn vs CLINton in the 2010 and came to the conclusion 
that I'd be much more sought after in BROWn county.

The reports for 2009 and 2008 didn't have a listing of rare counties, at 
least I couldn't find them.  (Why can't we have a text file, compatible 
with downloading into Excel or similar spreadsheet, to sort, etc., as we 
see fit, anyway.   Or, at least have similar data presented from year to 

After I figured that Blanchester was only a few miles from the Bott 
Wildlife Area (3.5 miles as the crow flies, a a bit less that 5 miles 
via road) in BROWn county, I might has well set up there, and set a new 
record for QRP in that county.

Since the Cincinnati Funny Modulation Club decided to stay in HAMIlton 
county I've not seen a fixed station in BROWn county.  I could have set 
up in CLINton county and set a new record for QRP, but there's usually 
two or three other fixed stations from that county, so BROWn is much 
easier pickings. ;)

p.s. I didn't find QSO's by county in the 2008 and 2009 results - please 
give me a link to these data.  They'd be very valuable to my searches 
for rare counties.  The results listings for several of the earlier 
contests are all but useless.
