Thanks to W3DYA/M from Texas(14), W4SIG/M from Tennessee (8) and
K4ZGB/M from Alabama (7) and to 7 Magnolia State fixed ops for six
new ones leaving 24 yet to be crayoned-in.

From Georgia it is essentially a one band (40 meter) contest and for
"No Phone Extras" like me it's CW only. CW = SSB = 1 point ... hmmmm.

See you in 2012. Thanks to all the organizers and ops.

Mark, W4UCZ

Enjoyed following the mobiles around. 20m & 40m were difficult at times into
WTX. Worked the following mobiles: W3DYA (20), W4SIG (12), K4ZGB (7).

15 was open all day. Thanks for all the QSYs. Top mobile for me was W3DYA with
31 Qs followed by W4SIG with 23 and K4ZGB with 22. 73...

Sorry I couldn't participate more -- Had to prepare for NAQP. Thanks to all of
those who provided me with fun!

If multipliers count by band then my score is 7440 with 62 multipliers. Back to
Mississippi entertainment: food.

Thanks to all the MS stations that came out to play and made it fun.

It would be helpful to have standard abbreviations for the counties.

A few combinations can be confusing; GRENADA/GREENE, MONTGOMERY/MONROE, etc.
(I don't use logging software).

Having been involved in the organization/administration of the British Columbia
QSO Party a few weeks ago, I have a soft spot for stations calling CQ in a QP,
especially those calling (and calling and calling...) without any takers.
Picked up all the Mississippi stations I heard. Called CQ for a while, just in
case anyone in Mississippi was listening for the Pacific Northwest, but only
attracted one station from the state. Hope all participants had fun.

Only part time, but still my second best MSQP score. Propagation is definitely
on the way up. Had a nice long run on 20 meter phone around midday. Plenty of
CW ops too, as always. Thanks to all who participated! 73,

K2, 5w, verticals. The rules were a little unclear. A mobile was claiming dupes
in different counties. Are counties counted only once per party? But fun
K4ZGB   Mobile LP   18,9122011-02-28 15:16:46
Thanks to all that followed me through 11 counties. I had a little difficulty
with software and a new laptop through the first three counties, thanks for
your patience during that time.

FT1000MP, Alpha 78, 1 KW, TH6DXX. Heard only W5UE very weak on 20 during this
year's contest. Time was limited. Hope everyone had a great time. Look for
the GA QSO Party (50th Year Celebration) on the second weekend in April. 73,
John, K4BAI.

Operated CW and fixed stations were few, the few mobile stations drove fast and
made it interesting. Need more fixed CW stations. It was 2 band contest for me.
Now to get ready for the FQP.
