4 QSO Parties this Weekend Covering 16 States.

This weekend (May 1 and 2) is the “4 QSO parties in one” weekend.

This includes the New England QSO Party (6 NE states), 7th Call Area (8 states), Indiana and Delaware.

QSO parties are a great way to pick up states you need to WAS on different bands. With better propagation lately, you may even be able to get some 10 meter states.

To make it easier to log, the organizers of these four events will all accept logs with contacts of the others. They will filter out the ones that matter to them. Both TR4W and N1MM support a combined log (including full dupe checking and multiplier counting). In each program, you use the contest name of IN7QPNE (yes Delaware is included in there too if not in name).

As a special treat, the Delaware QSO Party only will allow FT8/FT4 contacts. It is a bit strange in how they do it so read the rules but do not be surprised if you see stations calling CQ FD this weekend on FT8 (again, read the rules here

Start times are as follows:

Delaware QSO Party: 1700Z, May 1 to 2359Z, May 2 (1:00 PM EDT start)
