As the long, dog-days of summer begin to come to an end it marks one of my favorite operating activities and that is the Colorado QSO Party. While I’m not a native to the Centennial State, I am always proud to represent Colorado and this year marks the 140th anniversary of statehood.
The 2016 Colorado QSO Party takes place on Saturday, 3 September beginning at 0400 UTC (7 AM to 10 PM MDT). I have a few mid morning commitments which I need to take care of, but KDØBIK should be on the air shortly after the lunch hour.
Perhaps it is naïve to anticipate better band conditions for next Saturday. After all…..
But I for one will be giving it a solid effort from the basement ham shack located in grid square DM79np. I hope to work you in the 2016 Colorado QSO Party.
