There will be KØLD out there again this year. This will be a low key effort primarily tuning up the new vehicle/operating position. I will run three bands (20M, 40M , and either 80M or 15M for the third band.) CW only.

I will probably run 80M for the first and last two hours, and 15M in between.

APRS Tracking: WØWX-1

WØZDT (Formerly WØZZY) and ABØRE are planning a 12 county mobile run this year for MNQP. Last year we had some technical difficulties which prevented us from making any contacts at all, but this year we are hoping to repeat a fairly successful route we ran in 2015. We will be running under the Unreal Radio Club callsign WØWX, and using the name MATT. Hoping to hold down 7.227 and use WØWX 1 for APRS. We also need to wrap things up around 2100Z.

Planned Route: Aitkin, Cass, Hubbard, Beltrami, Lake of the Woods, Beltrami(2), Koochiching, Itasca, St Louis, Lake , Cook, Lake(2), St Louis(2), Carlton, Pine

APRS Tracking: KC0DMF-9

Craig KCØDMF, Frank NØSFF and Kevin NØXWJ join the ranks of other notable mobile teams for the Minnesota QSO Party!  We will focus on hitting most of the northeast counties of Minnesota.  We will be equipped for 80m - 20m SSB and drive a full route to help operators get all of the MN counties.  Our route may change due to weather or to take advantage of picking up more counties




Planned route: Morrison, Crow Wing, Mille Lacs, Benton

Scott-N0UV and Charlie, K0SV are planning a ssb rover op for MNQP. We are looking at activating Benton, Morrison, Todd?, and Crow Wing. We're still working out the details. We're looking at operating with 2 xmitters at the same time. 1 station on 20 ssb and the second doing everything else. We might even try cw depending on the need but it appears that this might be covered already. Call being used is K0ARF- name might be SPOT.








Planned Route: Carver, McLeod, Sibley, Renville, Nicollet, Brown, Watonwan, Cottonwood, Redwood, Murray, Lyon, Lincoln, Pipestone, Rock, Nobles, Jackson, Martin, Faribault, Blue Earth, Waseca, Steele, Freeborne, Mower, Dodge, Goodhue, Rice, Dakota, Scott

Final preparation is underway and it looks like everything is ready for Saturday! I'll be operating on-the-fly on 20 Meter SSB. I'm going to stake out 14.256 MHz as my freq and see if I can hold it for the contest. If I'm near your town, give me a shout! Good luck everyone! Rich







Planned Route: Brown, Redwood, Cottonwood, Murray, Lyon, Lincoln, Pipestone, Rock, Nobles, Jackson, Martin, Watonwan

APRS Tracking: W0ZQ-15

20M and 40M CW from each stop. Also 80M CW fro the early stops and the late stops. I expect to be in each county for about 30 minutes before moving on. Maybe 20M and 40M SSB as I drive, tbd.
