2018 MONTANA QSO PARTY CANCLED THIS YEAR!!!

By N7LT - Posted on 31 January 2018

There have been a number of inquires about the 2018 Montana QSO party to me directly via email. Earlier this year, due to other commitments, I notified the club that I could not do the QSO party this year. Since then, no one offered to take over so there will be NO MONTANA QSO PARTY THIS YEAR!

Hopefully somebody will take it over for next year. It's all set up to go, all you have to do is some paperwork and send out the certificates after the contest. I'll be glad to pass the documents over to whoever wants to run the MTQP in the future.

2018 Montana QSO Party

By W7YP - Posted on 23 January 2018

Unfortunately, we find ourselves without a coordinator to handle this year's Montana QSO Party. Life's demands required that Lyndel, N7LT, create some 'spare' time for other priorities and he reluctantly asked the club to find another coordinator.

While we weren't able to find such a person in time for this year's QSO Party, we do fully intend to return next year and thereafter; so, please look for us in 2019.

The club would like to take this chance to thank Lyndel for his years of service to the club and for the many years he spent managing the QSO Party.

Rick, W7YP
