2008 Michigan QSO Party Photos

Back to 2008 MiQP Main Page


After a last minute plea for photos just before this report went to publication, a bunch of people sent pictures - THANKS!  The best photos are scenes of the operator(s) in action at the rig(s), shots of antenna erection, or perhaps of the station itself.  The MiQP committee would like to encourage participants to submit photos of their MiQP operation.  The easiest way to do this is to attach photos along with your log submission, however photos can be received up until the beginning of July.  Please plan to submit some shots of your activity along with your log in 2009.

The photo above is of K9TM's dipole antennas at his portable location in Monroe county for the MiQP,  The upper antenna is a half-size G5RV dipole for 40/20 meters about 25' above the ground.  The lower antenna is an AI1H broadband dipole for 80CW/75SSB, about 5' below the G5RV.  Both antenna are supported with a single rope, which was tossed up into the tree by hand.  These two antennas were good enough to allow Tim to make almost 800 QSOs with just 100W.
