Michigan QSO Party

by N8NZB

Coming up soon is the Michigan QSO Party contest. It runs from noon to midnight EDT on Saturday, April 15, 80 to 10 meters phone and CW. This is a fun contest where, unlike other contests, everyone wants to call you. The rules are pretty simple. For every contact, you give a serial number and your Michigan county. The other station gives you the same, or his state or province if not in Michigan. You can contact a station once on each band and mode. Best bands are 20 and 40 meters in daylight, then 40 and 80 meters after dark. More information, including full rules and a list of Michigan counties, can be found at http://www.miqp.org/
