Congratulations, Keith.

Unless someone made a QRP entry from FULTon county in 2010 you should 
have set a record for QRP.  There's no LOW or HIGH records for FULTon 
listed either.  N8F (for FULTon County might be another choice) I found 
that N8Q was a good call for QRP - I used it in 2010 from HENRy county 
(my namesake - can you guess why I chose it?)  The 2010 records don't 
show on the Ohio Records map page yet.

I'm planning to be somewhere in SW Ohio next year (presuming I'm not 
pushing up tulips or in a psychiatric lockup - you do realize that all 
hams have to be a bit crazy, don't you? :)   My son and daughter-in-law 
live in Warren County near Mason, and there are many counties near them 
which have no, or very low, QRP records.

I've been operating QRP for a bunche of years, shortly after moving to 
Michigan and stumbling across the Michigan QRP Club.  I find it's almost 
as easy to make contacts @ five watts or less than with 100 watts or so.
