Hello Idaho Ham's...  Every year the Idaho QSO party gets bigger, every year more and  more of you help make it successful.
This year, due to the ARRL's GRID CHASE contest, the IDQP should go stratospheric.  Idaho is RARE, that makes our Grids RARE,
There are thousands of Ham's out there looking for grids. We have the opportunity to activate some good ones.  You Rovers should be a real commodity!! 
You guys that live in scarcely populated grids will generate pileups. In fact if you live in Idaho you will generate pileups. so be cool and collected..    
Every Idaho Ham is invited to enter the IDQP,   if you make a thousand contacts or just one you're helping make it a success.
Due to the GRID CHASE,  the character of our contest might change a bit. Our rules stay the same
  One Note:  be aware, you need to be a LoTW user, to reap the benefits of the grid chasers .. 
  SO, sign up to day !  Signing up isn't instantaneous, it takes several weeks,  so start now ..
  You don't need to be a  ARRL member to use their LoTW system.
