Short note – The Club“Shack” at St. Norbert College will be open for the Wisconsin QSO Party. They will be using the Club Callsign.
When filling out your log sheet, be sure to include everyone that was operating, not just the operator whose call you used.. that way if your station gets an award, everyone that worked it, will be eligible.
