the means to setup a temp station that can operate on UHF

Have you looked at the EMCOMM Challenge Award offered in
this year's North Carolina QSO Party?
Please see: http://ncqsoparty.org/index.php?id=rules
We know that the qualifications for this award can be a
little confusing, here are the highlights:
1 - This is a tag-on award and is not a category.
2 - One emergency minded person pre-registers and becomes
the contact for his/her team.
3 - The contact person solicits individuals or clubs that
are or will be operating in one of the NCQP categories for
a county in the chosen emergency management area. (mobiles
or expeditions that will operate across area boundaries
cannot be used)
4 - When the individual or club submits their log they will
enter the team name in the Club field of their Cabrillo
file.(one team name only)
5 - Scores of the individual logs will be added together
to form total points for this award.
6 - When a winner is chosen the contact person will receive
the award and can share between participants of the group.
As to date we have not received any pre-registrations. (see
rules page linked above)
This is a great opportunity to test portability, preparedness
and for leaders to learn more about their resources.
As part of the digital operations W4DW and NC4QP will include
MT63-1K. Stay tuned for possible schedules.
Tnx es 73,
