Steve Schroder, KIØKY, Bill Bear, KCØQXX, and Royce Seymore, AAØJD, all long time MARC members, operated mobile for the Colorado QSO Party, held on August 30th. This year they opted for mobile operation; they used Steve’s HF-equipped truck as their station. They successfully operated from Delta, Montrose, Gunnison, Hindsdale, Mineral, Archuleta, LaPlata, and Ouray counties. Bill reports they had lots of contacts and worked hard for them. Several stations they contacted wanted the different counties, and one station actually stayed with them for all eight counties!
Imogene Pass Run Volunteer List as I have it. We have 1 ham at each station but several of these need a couple more. We could use help at the Start, Finish and Tomboy for sure. Please let me know if you can help.
The race is this coming Saturday (9/6) at 07:30 and there will be a weather report from the summit by 6:30 thanks to Matt and Lisa. I also need to get shirt sizes out as well so I will contact you if I don’t hear back.

Our July 18th meeting was a picnic at Rotary Park in Montrose, where we could visit with Bob and Connie Schaeffer. Bob, KJØG, and Connie, KØGAS, are founding members who joined the club when it first began over 50 years ago. Bob is not in good health, so this picnic was held close to Bob’s nursing home. Here are some photos from the meeting:
