Hi Stan,

1.  Sure, do operate as a mobile, and send in a log. And operate from home as well.  I’ll defer to our log checking expert should he say otherwise, but a QSO made as a mobile in your home county may show up as a dupe in the home station log, and/or for the guy you work. There is no penalty for anybody if this happens, just no credit for the second QSO.

2. Yes, the highest power used is what determines your category. You don’t get to run low power except when you can’t bust the pileup for that rare multiplier  :-)

On the way home I was going to participate in the OHQP as a mobile, maybe just from noon to 1 o'clock or so. But when I get home I was going to operate from my home station. I should be able to keep track of my contacts while mobile. Should I just send that in as a check log? And then send in my home contacts as my actual entry? Or just refrain from operating mobile at all for the contest? What should I do?
