>Subject: Virginia QSO Party Announcement
>The Virginia QSO Party is only 3 months away. 15-16 March (local time).
>We are sending an email to all the amateur radio clubs in Virginia to
>remind them of the event so that you may start your planning.
>Why start planning now, you ask.
>Because there are several plaques being awarded which require some
>coordination and cooperation between members of your club. For example:
> "High Virginia Club - Virginia QSOs Only" only counts QSOs in the
>state of Virginia and the key is having many members participating in
>the Party and each contributing their log.
> "High Multiple Operator Single Transmitter Station" requires several
>operators to coordinate their schedules.
> "High Expedition" requires planning for one or more suitable
>locations in Virginia. Typically these are locations where we have had
>few if any QSOs in past Parties.
> Some of the single mode or band plaques like the "High Virginia QRP
>CW," or "High Virginia Single Operator Digital Mode" requires the ham to
>make an early decision as to the mode or band.
>So an early start on planning can only be beneficial. In addition, we
>hope that reminding hams of the event will foster increased
>participation as it has for the past several years.
>This year as for the last two years, we are offering to give a
>presentation to your club on the Virginia QSO party. This covers the
>rules and statistics from prior Parties. We gave this presentation to 10
>clubs in 2007 and to 7 clubs in 2006. If you have not seen the
>presentation before, please email me at nq4k at arrl.net and we will see if
>we can arrange a visit to your club.
>See you on the air!
>Chair, Virginia QSO Party
