Object: For Alabama amateurs to make contact with amateur stations throughout the world. Stations outside of Alabama make contact with Alabama amateurs in as many Alabama counties as possible. Contest Period: 1600 UTC (11:00AM CDST), Jun 2nd, 2008 to 0400 UTC (11:00PM CDST), Jun 3rd, 2008. All stations may operate the full 12 hours contest period. This is a great way to work on your Worked All Alabama awards and also add to your county hunter total as the rovers in these state QSO parties can bring out some rare counties at times.”
Tilt-N-Raise and Alabama QSO Party
The use of the Tilt-N-Raise antenna mount in the Alabama QSO Party event is a great idea. You can use the Tilt-N-Raise to get your antenna up in short order and then you can concentrate on getting the rest of your gear operational. Think of the extra Alabama counties you and your group (if you are in one) can have in the logs. The antenna is a major part of an amateur radio station operating in Alabama QSO Party and the last thing you need to worry about is whether the antenna will stay upright during the Alabama QSO Party. If you have yet to buy a Tilt-N-Raise then just use our link to order a Tilt-N-Raise for yourself, then you can rest easy while working the Alabama QSO Party or any other radio event.
