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.
