On Saturday May 2, 2015, HARC members set up transceivers north of Antimony, Utah for the annual Seven-Area QSO Party, usually called "7QP." The location put us at the line between Garfield and Piute counties, so operators could "give" others credit for contacting someone in both. The HARC team--W7GEM (Gregg McArthur), KF7ZMF (Marlene McArthur), KZ7Q (Brian Johanson), KZ1G (Jon Titus), N1YTE (Kurtis Constantine), and K7KKY (Jason Jensen)--started site "construction" on Friday evening and after a few glitches and re-engineering an antenna support, successfully set up several vertical antennas and horizontal dipoles.
The club has started to plan the 2016 7QP operation and has several locations in mind, along county lines, at a 3-point contact of counties, and in a rare Utah county. We welcome ideas from club members and county hunters. And we would like to have a few more operators and radios for the next 7QP outing. --Jon Titus, KZ1G
