FYI, there are two events coming up that may be of interest to OhQPers:
1. The Michigan QSO Party: this Saturday, April 19, Noon to midnight EDT.
Also sponsored by the Mad River Radio Club, it has rules very similar to,
though not exactly identical to, those of the Ohio QSO Party. Full info is
available at _www.miqp.org_ (http://www.miqp.org) . The Michigan guys have
been very in the OhQP - here's your chance to return the favor!
2. Ohio’s first NVIS Antenna Day will be a great time to test antenna
designs, determine the best performers and compare your activity with other
groups around the state of Ohio! The event is open to ALL amateurs and
groups. Our goal is to put signals up from as many counties as possible.
Remember to bring food and lots of friends and take time to just get together in
Contact other stations and give ACCURATE signal reports for your logs!
Contact W8SGT at the Ohio EOC, and other fixed stations who will be able to
give you a good idea of your signal strength and geographic coverage area.
The event is not limited to Ohio- because in an emergency our contacts may
be directed at our neighboring counties and states! This is not a race or
points-scored contest, this is designed to be a fun, relaxed event with a lot
of experimenting. What it will give us should be a major step in
determining the best emergency antennas to keep in your Go-Box or comm vehicle to
be ready! The fact that Field Day is coming soon after is good, too!
Please take LOTS of pictures! We would like to see your group in
operation, and especially the antennas you built that were your best performers!
For more information see the Ohio Section web page.
Also, the logs have been checked and I am working on the writeup of the
results of the 2014 Ohio QSO Party. I hope to have them out within a week or
so. Thanks for your patience.
And if you have not already done so, mark Saturday, August 22, on your
calendar for the 2015 Ohio QSO Party!
