2013 Kansas QSO Party Mobile Routes

We have covered all 105 counties (both CW and SSB) for the third year in a row!
This year we are trying a CW Mobile Window of .35-.40.
Listen for the CW mobiles every .5 kHz in this window.
We'll see if it works!

Updated : 24 Aug 2013 7:30am

Changes since August 20 :
NU0Q/N0U significantly revised his route - posted 20 Aug
N0UTK/K0O moved more counties to Saturday - posted 21 Aug
W0R added Wyandotte to make all 105 counties active by mobiles - posted 24 Aug

Please fill in the county activation form or email your route to kansas150 at hotmail. Include your operating mode (SSB CW BOTH) and a list of your counties in the order you plan to visit them. Break your list down into Saturday and/or Sunday. Update me with changes as they occur.

Thanks in advance to all the mobiles and fixed stations for making this happen!
