The New England QSO Party is coming soon – it starts on Saturday! We’d sure like to see some additional activity this year – hope you can get on and make at least a few QSOs – or encourage others to do so.
It runs from 2000Z Saturday May 2 until 0500Z Sunday May 3 (4pm EDT Saturday until 1am EDT Sunday) and 1300Z Sunday May 3 until 2400Z Sunday (9am EDT Sunday until 8pm EDT Sunday).
Suggested frequencies are: CW – 3540 7035 14040 21040 28040, SSB – 3850 7280 14280 21380 28380. ** Now that the broadcast stations are mostly out of 7125-7200, try 7180 on 40m SSB.** Digital QSOs count the same as CW QSOs
New England stations send signal report, county and state, and can work anyone, including other NE stations.
Please send in a copy of your log – certificates will be sent to those with more than 25 QSOs.
The full rules are available on the NEQP web site at http://www.neqp.org
