We dont foresee any rule changes for 1999. Just remember that every club station that you work is worth five (5) points. County line stations will give you one QSO number, but you count them for a QSO from every county. And for a possible multiplier from each county.

 

The 1999 Michigan QSO Party is the third weekend in April 1999

Operating Periods:

1800Z April 17 until 0300Z April 18, 1999

1100Z April 18 until 0200Z April 19, 1999

 

The Michigan Single Operator Stations

This year the Bay Area DXers club station WB8DX, operated by Barry, K8BK, had the high score for the state. The race for second was close with K8JM from Lapeer coming in second with EMARC club station K8EPV, operated by Stan, AC8W in third place. Forty one Michigan stations this year were in the Single Op class.

WA8DX/K8DD opr. Had a great time - fun to be a club station. K8EPV/AC8W opr.

 

The Multi Operator Stations

This year there were 6 multi op stations - the same as last year. The Hazel Park crew put W8JXU on the air for a first place win. With the 1 point per QSO from county lines, the XXX teams took second place and got a certificates for their counties. The W8MRM crew is doing a great job training operators and should be a force in the upcoming years. N8SE from the Salvation Army Corps in Mt. Clemens did a fine job for their first try at the QSO Party.

Soapbox: The multi ops were speechless!

 

The Mobiles

This year there were fewer mobiles, but higher scores! The N8FYL team (N8FYL & NW8W) narrowly out scored the KT8L team (KT8L & KG9LF), winning by working more 5 point club stations. K8SWD was right behind them. This was definitely the closest contested class in the QSO Party.

Soapbox: 

All marked dupes are same station, same band QSOs from different counties,.used LOG-EQF, didnt have a way of handling that. KT8L(Common problem with non-contest loggers. You could put the call in with a /county as in W8XXX/CALH, W8XXX/STJO, etc. The NA Logging program has MI QSO Party built into it and makes it very easy to log QSO Parties. Ed.)

 

The QRPers

Again this year QRP was a serious class of operation! K8CV took top honors with WQ8RP, The Michigan QRP Club Chapter II station, run by N8CQA in second place, with W8SFF right behind him and K3WWP right behind them. Again it shows how much the club 5 pointers are.
