Updated Jun 3rd, 2016

County Activity (Includes all stations thus far):
  • Those counties that are grey in color have no activity as yet.
  • Need as many operators as we can for all counties. So please consider operating from your home county.
  • If you can consider going mobile and cover a few counties, I am sure that it will be fun!

Station with a number in parenthesis (ie CALLSIGN/M(22)) indicates that this is a moble station and the number indicated the order for which they will visit the county. If you look down this page to the area where the mobiles are listed you will see their listing of the county in order.

    I (WA4DXP) have built the W4A page for this weekend's Alabama QSO Party on I'll be using that call. Take a look at QRZ.COM/db/W4A I have logo and other information about the event. Also a special QSL card for those who work W4A and want a card. This will be the first time I plan to work as much of the 12 hours as I can this coming Saturday. Will be on mostly 40 & 20 during the day and probably some of 75-80 in the evening. I'll be working SSB and CW, since you get another QSO credit for working the same station, but on a different mode. Different bands also count as another contact. Stations outside Alabama, try to work as many counties as you can for multiplier credit.
    See on you the bands on Saturday.
