Spread the news around…

This year North Dakota and Nebraska will be holding their QSO Parties on the same date as the South Dakota QSO Party, so it should be a very fun time!

Don’t worry about duplicating counties as others schedules may change.

Working Counties

Here is a spreadsheet of those who have so far committed to working counties.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AlKA9cGslUe5dFNrcG5lZWdmRVAwbFprWlQxaS0yOHc&usp=sharing 

Please feel free to edit and add your planned counties. It will help if you can add the approximate time you plan to be in a county so those looking for you can have a guide…

Its only a guess how long we will be in a particular county as we all tend to stay longer if the bands are favorable.

You can find the rules at the Dakota Territory DX and Contest Club Website.

The SDQP takes kind of a light-hearted approach and we don’t mind making fun of ourselves a little to draw attention to this event…

We change certificates every year to hopefully keep others outside SD interested in working us..

Hope to hear you on the air!
