A comparison... the Florida QSO Party and the Minnesota QSO Party.

The Florida mobile participants are probably starting to apply sunscreen 
lotion and getting ready to roll on Saturday. As you know, the Minnesota 
QSO Party is held in the dead of winter. It's the first Saturday of 
February each year. Weather conditions are always a concern to the MN 
mobile corps. And navigating through our snow-swept 87 counties can add 
another level of 'operating' challenge. It goes without saying there's 
an extreme contrast in weather conditions between these two events.The 
following video was captured during one mobilers route in northern 
Minnesota in 2007.


Here's hoping all FQP mobiles have a safe, enjoyable outing this weekend!

P.S. We're still trying to figure out who scheduled the MnQP in the dead 
of winter!
