Bob, W0BH, and his group continue to offer inducements for both in-state and out-of-state operators to work this active and very hospitable state QSO Party! Just look at the Rules as they evolve over recent years--nearly everyone gets some sort of prize in 2017... Chasing mobiles is always fun, but the KSQP webpage included an online spot page where anyone could enter a spot to find the mobiles in nearly real time. Drat! I didn't discover the page until Sunday morning! Many mobiles had surprisingly strong signals, but for those who didn't, they stuck with the QSO until both exchanges were made. FB ops! It would be helpful if mobiles would add a county abbreviation on, say, every other CQ. I'm always reluctant to make a call if I think it might be a dupe and waste the other chap's time... This QP has become my favorite single state Party, owing to the great organization, busy mobiles, and friendly ops who represent their state like gentlemen. I have wanted to operate the KSQP from Kansas sometime as a fixed portable from several sites during the weekend. Alas, we welcome hummingbirds every summer, and because they return to the spot where they were hatched, our population has grown to well over 100 birds this summer. We've seen scores of new youngsters this summer--next year's guests! I refill seven feeders twice daily (11 cups of table sugar daily). We live in the Outback, off grid, and there are no close neighbors who feed in the event we aren't here for more than a day. We are committed to keeping our little guests going without interruption. We will easily go through over 150 lbs of sugar this summer... The things we do for fun!! Thanks Bob and Gang for a great time! 73, dan
