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.
