2003 OQP Results

It has almost become expected that the Ohio QSO Party means weird or lousy radio conditions. In the five years since the rebirth of the OQP, only 2000 produced "normal" conditions. We had major solar flares in 1999 and 2001, and a solar particle storm in 2002. But unlike previous years when we Buckeyes felt somehow picked on by the propagation gods, at least for 2003 we had only a run of the mill geomagnetic disturbance, much like those that afflicted the ham bands for much of the year, including many other contests. But in spite of all that, and helped by gorgeous weather here in Ohio, we had a pretty darn good time celebrating Ohio's Bicentennial.

Leading all single operators was Scott Lehman, N9AG, operating as W8EX in the High Power class from Darke county. Interestingly, Scott beat theQSO total of last year's winner (WX3M operating at W8AV) by two QSOs! W8EX did have ten more multipliers than W8AV had in 2002, which was enough to set a new record single operator score.

The low power winner, and second overall, was Mike Tessmer, K9NW, who operated from N8BJQ's station in Champaign county. Mike was also the low power winner in 2002.

The Ohio QRP category was won by Ethan Miller, K8GU, another repeat winner, from Holmes county. Second place was the all CW effort of W8TM in Hamilton county.

Last January Tim Mitchell, K9TM, reserved the special event callsign K8O, and then kept the news under wraps until OQP time. He invited 3 Michiganders, K8CC, KT8X, and W8MJ, down to join him at his Lucas county QTH (only about 500 feet from the Michigan line!) and proceeded to demolish the multiop record. The number two score was turned in by last year's winner, AD8J, in Jefferson county.

Winning the mobile category, in another repeat victory, was the team of K8MR and W8DRZ, who operated from 21 counties in southeast and eastern Ohio.

The Ohio YL award, new in 2003, was won by Carolyn Donner, N8ST, from Brown county.

For much of the OQP, close in qsos on 40 meters were a major challenge. This made it tough for guys in Ohio to work other Ohioans. But if you were 400 miles or so away, you had a good shot into Ohio. Located a prime distance away, and fully prepared to take advantage of it, was Jim Funk, N9JF, in western Illinois. He broke the existing low power out of state record by 50%, and came within 150 points of breaking the overall (e.g. high power) record as well. Hal Offutt, W1NN, had hoped to be operating from Ohio, but scheduling problems arose, so he operated from home in EPA and took second place. The top high power effort was by K9OM in Florida, which was also the third overall out of state score.

The winning out of state QRP score was from Dennis Cobb, WA8ZBT, in Texas. He's no foreigner to Ohio, having previously lived in Fostoria for 25 years.

The out of state YL winner was Louisiana's Deandra Norred-Forrest, KD5MDO. And despite miserable propagation to Europe for most of the contest period, Zoli, HA1AG, managed 59 Ohio qsos to earn the top score from outside W/VE.

Club Results

Once again the Ohio Club competition was won by the North Coast Contesters, led by the 232K point multiop score of AD8J. Within close distance in second place was the Lake County Amateur Radio Association. LCARA's efforts were again reflected in Lake county being the most worked county.

Winning the out of state club competition was the Society of Midwest Contesters, with a record breaking 128K total.

Who was Rare. Who was Not.

There were 24705 qsos reported in the 2003 OQP. SSB narrowly beat out CW, 12,435 to 12,270. By band and mode, we had:

     80   40   20   15   10
SSB 3186 5701 3374 169 5
CW 2468 7347 2366 86 3

The OQP log checking revealed qsos reported from 87 of Ohio's 88 counties. Missing in action was Madison county, located just west of Columbus. All the other Ohio counties had at least double digit numbers of reported qsos.

With the adjustment of the Canadian multipliers to reflect what Canada is really like (i.e. Labrador is really part of the province of Newfoundland, and we lumped together the three northern territories of Yukon, Northwest, and Nunuvut, where nobody lives anyway), we had all the multipliers outside Ohio worked! Of course there is lots of room for improvement, as there were only single qsos reported in Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, and the Northern Territories.

If you ever heard someone in Lake county working someone in Pennsylvania, that was normal! Lake, Lucas, and Cuyahoga were the most worked Ohio counties, with Pennsylvania, Texas, and Florida the most reported locations outside Ohio.

PRIZES!

A number of state qso parties have awarded small prized to top entries in their contests. Most notable has been the California QSO Party, which gives out bottles of wine. Not to be outdone, the OQP sponsors considered various things of note from Ohio, and decided we do have one thing unique and very dear to the hearts of ham radio operators - the Dayton Hamvention!

So we decided to award a ticket to the 2004 Hamvention to five out of state hams who made at least 200 qsos in the OQP. Along the way we decided to expand things, and award tickets to 5 more lucky folks from a pool of those who made at least 88 qsos. (88 being the number of Ohio counties; but the 88 qsos did not have to be from all 88 counties). A number of members of the sponsoring Mad River Radio Club chipped in to pay for these prizes. The winners were drawn by K8NZ, N8TR, and W8CAR during a lull in activity during the ARRL DX CW contest at K8AZ, and the winners are:

From the out-of-state 200+ qso group:

W1NN, K4BAI, NT5TU (operator of W5AC), K8IR, and N9JF.

From the 88+ qso group:

AB8NI, AF8C, NC8V, KW8N, and KV0T.

Thanks go to those MRRC'ers who donated to make the Hamvention ticket awards possible: K5IID, AC8E, AD8P, AD8J, AF8A, K8GU, K8MR, KU8E, N8VW, W8AV, and W8RU.

The winners will be mailed their tickets after Hamvention tickets are distributed, likely in April.

Anyone interested in helping sponsor these awards (and possibly expanding them) for the 2004 OQP, please contact OQP Chairman Jim Stahl, K8MR, at: k8mr@arrl.net

New for 2004

The OQP is adding a "Rover" class beginning this year. Although we have often loosely interchanged the words "mobile" and "rover" in the past, we will now have two ways to get out and see Ohio. Mobile will stay the same, limited to stations that are capable of motion (although they can operated while stopped) and also limited to 100 watts. The new Rover will be modeled as closely as possible to the definition of "Rover" as used in the ARRL VHF contests: one or two operators, transporting all equipment between locations in two or more counties. If you wish to lug a big generator and run high power, so be it. You may also make qsos while mobile between stops; just please let's have no last-hour-of-the-contest conversions from mobile to rover. (One difference from the ARRL VHF rovers: we will permit use of AC mains for power.)

Why? Lots of experience, both in the OQP and by other mobile contesters in other QSO parties, shows that while CW contacts are usually not difficult to make with a relatively weak mobile CW signal, it is rarely possible to attract much attention with a similarly weak SSB signal. So people operating phone rarely get the benefit of those travelling through the rare counties of Ohio.

The rover class will permit someone to stop, quickly put up a simple antenna (say a dipole up 25 feet) and have a pretty decent signal. It also will let people get out and enjoy the thrill of operating from some rare counties, in multiple locations, without the need or expense of mobile antennas, a rig small enough to fit in a car, or the hassles of mobile ignition (and other) noise, etc. For a solo operator who wants to travel but does not want to operate while driving, it will let him make up for the lost time of driving by being a lot louder when he does stop.

[image:54,right,5]What can be done as a rover? We have a good example right here in Ohio. Ralph Matheny, K8RYU, has been doing just that for the past few years, putting some of the rarest southern Ohio counties on the air, on both CW and SSB. Under the new system, K8RYU would have had a combined score of 116,280 vs. a sum of 42,662 from his six individual scores.

[image:56,left,5][image:55,left,5]Although we referred to simple antennas, Ralph's are anything but. Check out the photos of his installation. With that system, it's clear he does not operate while driving!

IF YOU LIKED THE OQP, YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE...

The Michigan QSO Party. Also sponsored by the Mad River Radio Club, it will take place on Saturday, April 17 (Noon to midnight, EDT). The format and rules are virtually identical to the OQP, and a number of those who were active from Ohio in the OQP will be traveling north to operate from Michigan. Full details are available at: www.miqp.org

And don't forget that many of the active out of state participants in the OQP are actively involved with QSO Parties in their own states. Make a point to get on in these events and say thanks to them for their activity in the OQP!

Thanks to

This year the OQP log checking was done by Pat Collins, N8VW, who is also the chief web guy for the OQP. OQP Committee members AF8A and W8AV chipped in, with Gary, AF8A, doing much of the precontest publicity and maintaining the list of OQP records.

Everett Jackson, WZ8P, is the one who handles the beautiful plaques for the category winners. Note that Everett is in the printing business - if you need top quality work for your local club or any other reason, check it out with him. OQP Chairman K8MR handles the complaint department.

Thanks to the various clubs from around Ohio who sponsored the plaques, and most of all, thanks to all those hams, both inside Ohio and out, who braved the often trying conditions last August 23 to make the 2003 celebration of Ohio's 200th anniversary a lot of fun for all.

We hope you will all join us for the 2004 Ohio QSO Party, on Saturday, August 28. Note to Mr. Murphy: the real date for you, and you only, is September 28!

AD8PLots of fun in spite of the daytime band conditions
K8AJSThe G5RV antenna that worked so well in Radiosport wasn't the right choice for Ohio QSO Party. I thought it would have more high-angle radiation than it evidently did, but working the Ohio mobiles on 20 and 40 meters was very difficult. Worked lots of stations in the deep South, Plains and West Coast, though...hi. My Ohio county total wasn't good, worse than last year, I believe. I had a great time, the rates were much better here after the sun went down, and 80 meters was the band with the best. My total on 80 meters was done in much fewer hours than the time I spent all day on 40. Next year I'll make sure I have some dipoles close to the ground, so I have better luck with the Ohio mobiles.
K8IJI had a great time operating portable from my sister-in-law house in Ohio. 20M was terrible, 40M was great. Many thanks to all. Vy 73, Charlie
K8RT YL/XYL Contest Party. Club effort.
KB8UUZ Lots of fun! Started slow, but got better. Looking forward to next year!
KJ9C/M Tough to hear the OH stations. Also tough to make this look like Cabrillo. 213 CW/45 SSB=471 QSO POINTS, 19 counties, 44 S/P, some DX as well.
KV0T My first time, what great fun!
N8UW 1ST QSO PARTY TS570D 100W -> G5RV @ 30' CASUAL WITH A COUPLE BREAKS - LOTS OF FUN, THANKS
N8VZ This is my contribution to the Athens County ARA club score -- N8VZ
W8AL A portable station was set up at the club yearly picnic, using an IC-706 with a Carolina Windom antenna. Fun was had by all !
W8EXWhen my host, N8NR, went to have dinner with K9NW host, N8BJQ, K9NW and I should have swapped stations. Conditions not so good for short skip or DX, but were outstanding to Pennsylvania!
W8ID Had a great time even with low score! Is there an award for low score??? Hope so, I have a wall all picked out for it! Got a kick out of people coming out of the woodwork to get Seneca County at the last minute! K8ARL
W8KEN Very poor band conditions!
W8KNO By what I heard, the signals were there but my antenna was not high enough. Hope to hav a new computer by next year. Lost my laptop and tower due to a power surge.
W8TK One could rack up a nice score working only K8MR/M!
W8WEYL/XYL Contest Party. A good time was had by all.
AD6WL Conditions were not so great but the operators were. Thanks to the Mad River Radio Club. It was nice to hear KW8N put Erie on the air the last couple of hours of the contest.
HA1AG Condx was vy bad, congrats to W8CAR for the great mobile operation!
K0HW Tnx for the contest, wish I could have spent more time on it. See you all next year.
K0LWV Good contest - low noise here, had fun.
K2PS Hadn't intended to operate this contest, but TOEC was a flop (no prop to EU this AM), and I happened to tune across some OQP activity, so I figured why not? Turned out to be a lot of fun! Nice number of mobiles, K8MR, AF8A, W8CAR, KU8E, K8RYU, KJ9C, W8UE, WB6JBM/8, and AA8HH (hope I didn't forget anyone). They did a fabulous job - worked 80 of the 88 OH counties, missing CLIN (couldn't raise KU8E right at the end of the test), MADI, MARI, MERC, MORR, PREB, SCIO, WARR. And 20, 15, and 10 were nearly non-existent for the NJ to OH path. uortunately most of the activity was on 40 and later 80.
K3MD/3 Made around 8 contacts driving around town doing errands /m cw I did not log. All the best. John K3MD
K4UK Decided to run my K2 this year QRO at 13 watts, CW only. Enjoyed working all the mobile stations. Wasn't able to operate the whole period as my wife had accepted a dinner invitation for the evening.
K4XU conditions were not so good. Glad to give out OR.
K5OT Great fun following the mobiles!
K6DGW QUITE A FEW OH STNS ON. MOST WERE WEAK BUT TOTALLY WORKABLE, A FEW WERE REALLY STRONG (K8O) BUT IT WAS A FUN AFTERNOON AND EVENING. SPENT QUITE A BIT OF TIME WHILE EMPLOYED IN COLUMBUS AND DAYTON AND MADE IT TO AES IN CLEVELAND WHEN I JUST TRULLY NEEDED TO GET AWAY FOR AWHILE. HAPPY BIRTHDAY OHIO! HOPE TO CU IN THE CQP IN EARLY OCT ... I'LL BE AT N6A FOR ALPINE COUNTY.
K9DXR Fair condx, only running 100wts into a ground mounted vert.
KD5MDOVery small log, but perhaps I will qualify for out of state YL
KE9V Woke up this morning with a toothache. It never got better. All I could manage was about an hour on the air. The K2 at 5 watts and the dipole performed much better than I did.
KF4ZEO had fun
KG4NWSI really enjoyed this contest! It was my first time to work the Ohio QSO Party and though I didn't find a lot of people in Ohio on SSB those that were on were all friendly and seemed to be having fun. See y'all next year.
KG4RZH great fun on my Hallicrafters SR-160.
N2CU Ohio... too close for high bands :(
N4NTO Enjoyed the party!
N4PN Nice QSO Party. Nice to hear my old buddy Jim, K8MR in many counties. Thanks to all of the mobiles who really make the contest fun.
N9JF Missed Clinton, Madison and Morrow for a "sweep". Nice job by the OH stations!
NC6P Nice contest, hope to work you in October
ND2T A low-rate, relaxed few hours. The California to Ohio path was solidly open on 15M, but few 8s seemed to notice. Many thanks the fleet of mobiles, especially K8MR, KJ9C, KU8E, and W8CAR. See you in the California QSO Party 4-5 October.
NN5A I'll be back next year!
NO5W Great party and outstanding job by the mobiles that were out and about including K8MR, KU8E, AF8A, and the apptly named W8CAR. The mobiles really make these parties interesting and the 2003 OQP was no exception. Hope to see everyone in the TX QP in late September. 73, Chuck, NO5W
NU8Z Conditions into Ohio were very poor from south Michigan. It did improve on 40 in the early evening and on 80 late in the contest. Had fun!! I will be back next year.
VA3IX Did you ever have so much fun, under terrible condx?
W3BBO Thanks to all the mobiles who make the State QSOP interesting!
W4ARM Sure hope some consideration is given to adding operating time on Sundays!!
W4GFQ Tks for the great causal contesting.
W6RLL Lots of activity this year. Thanks to all who worked me.
W9RE Good activity wish I had more time!
WA5SWN I've hesitated about sending in my log - not many contacts, low score - but maybe you guys need to know that somebody in Kansas tried. My operating time was severely limited by thunderstorms, but I had fun anyway.
WA5TRX I had fun working the OHIO QSO Party. Found quite a few stations early in the contest. Bad conditions could have better. Found nothing on 15 & 10 meters. See you next year.
W5AC Big thanks to all the mobile guys..the 9 (mobile) stations accounted for 1/3 of the QSOs that I made! And without them I wouldn't have 39 of my mults. Thank you guys! 100 other Ohio Stations were worked, of which 9 came back to my CQ and didn't have a clue that their state QSO party was going on. 73, Dennis/NT5TU
W1NN I had plans to be mobile again in Ohio but things just didn't work out so decided to see what I could do from out of state. 40 Meters was very good from EPA during the day but as the evening wore on, skip lengthened out and I could hear very few OH stations. My last 40 Meter mobile contact was at 0214. I did what I could on 80 but my low antenna just doesn't hack it on this band.
VE7FO Well, the giant VE7 Multi-Multi station bombasts the airwaves again with one MkV running full out at 200W. Conditions to W8 were better than I expected so it never got really boring. Brenda (VA7CCF) would work 20 phone dry, I would do the same for cw and then it was her turn again. She left around 1900Z and I put a little more time in with a couple of breaks. I moved to 40 cw around 0010 and, while there were plenty of signals, no one could hear me. Once I switched from the 80 dipole to the 40 things got better. Heard some signals on 80 but they couldn't hear me.
