The following is a link to map that shows the rover operations for the MiQP.
It was created by Uli KK8I.

Good Luck and hope to hear you on April 15th.

It is Sunday April 16th, and I was with the USECA club at Metro Beach for the MiQSO Party all day yesterday... I have no idea how we scored in the contest, but we had a BALL working it! Now that was REAL radio - a bunch of hams out in the open air with the sun in our face all doing what we love - "playing radio"!!!
