The 2009 running of the NA QSO Party is tomorrow

This timely reminder from a buddy of mine...........

Great contest - 100 watts max, no amps - single op only, no packet spots -
easy exchange, just your name & state.

If you can't operate the entire contest, no problem, just join in and pass
out a few QSOs.

I worked exactly one hundred Q's in three hours of casual operation

It was fun and a good refresher for the big contest in November !
