Texas QSO Party is This Weekend!
David F <davidftx@...>
The Texas QSO party is this weekend. This is a very civilized contest where the object is to work Texas Counties.
DATES and TIMES: Saturday September 27th from 0900 Texas Daylight Savings Time until 2100 TDST. You don't have to stay up all night to work this contest. Sunday September 28th from 0900 TDST until 1500 TDST. Very doable hours.
The Point: The point is to work as many Texas Counties as possible. You can work the same station on different bands. Look for Rovers, mobiles who drive from county to county and work as many stations as they can until they get to the next county. Look for KK5LO, Walter Hock from Hondo as one of the mobiles.

Obie, N5VYS, Jay, K0BCN and I will be W5RTA at the STXDXCC Club Station in Bandera County. Anyone who wants to work the TQP from that location for a couple of hours contact me.
I just heard that Bob W2IK is heading west to Garner State Park,
which is a county that doesn't have much of a ham population, so it
would be a great contact for filling in that blank.
