I received a letter from the Englewood Amateur Radio Association with the results of the 2009 NJ QSO party. The good news is that the EARA received more logs this year than in the past. The bad news is that participation still seemed light.
The top NJ scorer was N2MM from Burlington County. There were no entries from Middlesex County (mea culpa !!!). In fact, it seems that only 7 of New Jersey's 21 counties were represented.
The NJ QSO Party for 2010 is tentatively scheduled for the weekend of August 21st and 22nd. I am going to make a point of putting Middlesex County on the air this year. Maybe a portable QRP effort? Hmmm ..... maybe from the Edison Memorial Tower in Menlo Park, where the light bulb was invented. Back when the Piscataway Amateur Radio Club was in full swing, we operated a special event station from that site. It was a blast.
More about this as August approaches.
