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!
