The County Hunter Web Forum

The place to discuss issues affecting county hunting, or to just ask questions

Subject: Good points!

Message: Most here know this method--may not be for all folks for various reasons, but when running mobile and parked/stationary or as a passenger moving, I found taking a list/spread 'em out the most efficient method. ("QRZ list") No need for endless QRZs and the headaches of pileups--and saves precious minutes in a long run. Piece of paper, pencil, and copying just a few letters of each caller (when you know who they are) makes for an ENJOYABLE run. Was forced to use it back in the 80's-90's when a mobile run would net over 200 Q's. Also helps the weaker folks get quieter slots to sneak in. Plus let's say two call at once, getting both can be had most times. Also miss the days when CHing had good net controls, like ol' Ed--the blind ham, WA6VJP, on 20 CW. When weaker folks know relays will be taken, they'll usually hang back until then, easing the pileup and desperation to work the county.
