^^ Saturday morning. 29 degrees. Time to fire up the wood stove and set up equipment.

^^Let the contest begin. Even with the wood stove it took awhile to get the tent warm. The 20 mph wind, along with the near freezing temp was not going to make things easy.

^^ Our cast iron camp cooks, Steve, WB7VEQ and Bob, W7RLS ditched the iron and gave us an indoor waffle breakfast. Waffles, bacon, sausage links and eggs to order. For some reason everybody wanted scrambled?

^^ There weren't any leftovers, so it must have been good!

^^ Saturday night supper was a whole roast pork loin, mashed potatoes and gravy, side dishes, and pie, cake and ice cream for dessert. 

^^ All in all, it was a great weekend.We didn't make a lot of contacts, but we never do for this event. It's always been a way of getting back in the swing of things with field ops, and enjoying the team company. We used up a lot of food, drink, firewood and propane. And had a great time doing it. See you all out there next year. 73!

          Idaho QSO Party 2024

    This year's Idaho QSO Party was held, as we have come to think is "normal", at Idaho Power's Cottonwood campground at C.J. Strike reservoir.

   Weather was a combination of cold, windy, sunny and rain showers. After all, it is still early March. We had a nice, warm (and large) white tent to keep the water and wind away, along with a really WARM wood stove to keep it toasty in the tent. (Anywhere within 10 feet of it was like being in a sauna!)
