It's always a pleasure to participate in the Michigan QSO Party - KC8A  Thanks to you and the OPARC gang for another fun weekend, 73 - WB8GOY  Sorry I could not work you more often (W8MB/m) but could not copy you till you were on your way home. Hope to see you next year, 73 - K8KIR  I enjoyed the opportunity to work the contest from the UP this year - WD8LCD at W8YY (Michigan Tech ARC)  Had a lot of fun but never heard you (W8MB), 73 - K8OOK/m  As always, one of the best state QSO parties going. Thanks to you and all the members of OPARC for sponsoring this event. Generally good conditions and increased participation make it a fun time for all - AC8W  I had a good time even though TVI & equipment problems cut my operating time very short. Looking forward to next year's contest - KI8W  Sorry writing a bit ruff - most QSOs were in motion - W8VSK/m

Just a note to say that I enjoyed the Michigan QSO Party very much. Wish I could have spent more time on the air, but was unable to because of my schedule on the ship. Still I enjoyed the contacts I was able to make. Did not hear one station on from Charlevoix County, my home county. The only questionable contact I made was my number 20 with W8PBO. First he was in Alger county in the UP, then (my number 27 the next day) he was in Macomb county near Detroit. He must have hopped a plane? Look forward to next QSO party for Michigan. My very best regards - K1HO/mm bear Bermuda  Thanks for the QSO party. CU next year, 73 - WA2ASQ  As always, the Michigan QSO Party is one of the best ones going. The participation by the Michigan stations is the highest of all the QSO parties that I work and I work them all. They are all to be commended for their fine turnout!!! - W2EZ  Worked four new counties! Lots of activity - wish I had more time to operate - WA2UDT  Thanks for a FB contest. Sorry I didn't have more time (3 hrs, 15 min) but enjoyed every minute. See you in October for the PA QSO Party - W3HDH  A real nice QSO party again this year. Hope to see you in the PA contest this year, 73 - WA3JXW  Activity was great again this year. A fun contest as usual. Thanks to the mobiles for many new counties. See you again next year, 73 - K3NB  The high level of activity made the event lively and enjoyable - NN3SI (W4KM at Smithsonian)  Good participation - wish I had more time to operate, 73 - WA3UNX  I was the contest chairman for the Virginia QSO Party. I can appreciate your efforts, believe me! Good contest you put on, 73 - KW4I  Propagation on 15 & 20 meters was really down from last year. Worked mostly 40 & 80 meters. Really missed N9AG. Hope he will be back next year - NA4J  Where was everybody up there? Must have been on 160 meters cuz I didn't hear many fols on 80, 40, 20, 15 or 10 meters. Take care and good to work you all, 73 - KF4WKA8GOM and N8ERV are real gentlemen & make ham radio a real pleasure! Tnx. How about this: I worked five stations & wound up working: A. 1x2, B. 2x2, C. 2x1, D. 2x3, E. 1x3. That's all the possible groups in the absolute minimum number of contacts! Interesting fact is that I hunted for all 8s I could find & just noticed this interesting result when filling out the log!! Do I get a special award for that (HI, HI)? - N5EYF  Enjoyed the party but not many Michigan stations heard here. Twenty meters was the only band much good. Forty and eighty meters were pretty well smothered in QRN; 21 MHz never opened at times I checked it. Anyhow, we'll keep trying and hope to see you all next time. 53rd year of "hamming it up" and going for at least60, HI - W5NR  The Michigan QSO Party is always an interesting operating program. Let me assure you that I don't envy the Michigan operators, the the number of QSOs in the neighborhood of one thousand, the job of working up the report for this QSO party - W5WG  MY first Michigan part from the other side, and I must say that things sure are different! I was hoping that I could break a hundred QSOs but I guess it was just not to be, I was somewhat disappointed with the level of activity on twenty meters. I did not hear many different stations on phone or CW. Were they there and pointing them beams to the southeast? I am not sure of the reason. Band conditions were also disappointing, fifteen meters was dead for most of the weekend and eighty meters doesn't begin to open up until 0300Z. I never realized it when I was operating from Michigan, but the contest periods definitely favor stations in the eastern time zone with regards to eighty meters. Never the less, I had fun working the contest from the other side and will try it again next year, which will hopefully be my last before returning to Michigan. Look for me from Houghton, or maybe portable Keweenaw in 1985! - WA8MAM  I hope that this qualifies me for a certificate for #1 in Illinois. Wish I could have had more time to be on for this FB contest - W9VEN  Another FB party. You seem to have a lot more stations on the air than most of the parties. Keep up the good work. As I have said two times before, see you next year - N0CLV  See you next year - K0KD  Very poor conditions so I only worked three stations. All stations signals were weak, but I tried HI HI - JH3DPB  Best QSO part of them all from a CW viewpoint. Conditions were very poor all day SUnday. Michigan stations scarcely heard but others coming in loud. As usual the mobiles gave us many extra points. Now 79 years old and a ham for 64 years, 73 - VE3KK (ex: GI2AUB, I1HXF, CT2AA, VE1MK & VE3CDK)

W8MB Activity Notes: The club station mobile and fixed made a total of 343 contacts from eleven different upper peninsula counties, starting from Houghton County Saturday and ending up in Oakland County late Sunday. Each contact with W8MB was work five points as the county changed. The club is planning on putting W8MB on wheel again for 1984 to activate more rare counties. Best 73 to all and Season's Greetings 0 K8ED, Contest Chairman of OPARC
