I can’t find the like button so I’ll have to send a virtual like to Steve and a bunch of likes to the organizers of the OHQP.  QSO parties are one of my favorite activities and are largely the reason that I was able to get WAS.  I’m glad Ohio is one of the more active ones.  Those of us in the Delaware Amateur Radio group always look forward to putting up a big score and I hope that other clubs and individuals in the state enjoy it as much as we do.  It would be super neat to do a rover through the less-populated counties; maybe someday.

And Steve, I remember hearing you pretty well last August with my rather low-level station so you being barefoot isn’t hurting you too much.  Anyway, good luck with the amp.

There are a lot of other folks out there that should take a lesson or two on how to throw a State QSO Party.  Just because you pick a date and time for a State QSO Party doesn’t mean that there will be much activity.  Take a look at the 3830 Reflector and view the results from some of the other states to get an idea of how well the OHQP organizers have managed to get activity and participation.  Well done gents.
> I would also like to thank the mobiles and rovers for their efforts.  These are the guys who really make a difference in the overall qso count and multiplier count.  Let’s hope that in 2017 we can get another half dozen or so mobiles and rovers out there.
> I’m already looking forward to 2017 OHQP.  This year I hope to put up some kind of better antenna for 40 and 80 meters, and maybe I will even have my amplifier up and running by then.  For those of you who have been following the saga of my errant amplifier, it is still stuck in Costa Rican Customs but I have been promised that it is going to be released soon according to the freight forwarder.
