This is a really great event. The mobiles are out in force (at least 6-7 full time last year and the same this year) changing counties around every 30-40 minutes, so there are new stations and new mults available throughout the contest. This event now ranks in the top five US QSO parties. Put it on your calendar.

PS: I drive all the way from EPA to mobile in this one. I wouldn't do this for just any old QSO party!
