Contest of the Month: Arizona QSO Party, October 11-12

Hams worldwide will be trying to contact Arizona stations during the AZ QSO Party.  This contest is fun because we become the hunted rather than the hunters, so there's lots of activity for AZ hams.   QSO Parties are very popular with "county hunters" from around the globe, so there will be DX stations as well as US stations seeking Pima County, AZ.  Contest rules:

Last year a group of OVARC operators made enough QSOs to earn a nice plaque for the club.  This year we plan to host OVARC members at W8TK's station, operating all modes, all bands.  This contest is not as frantic as Field Day, so it's ideal for operators looking for a lower-pressure experience.   We'll provide food and drinks.  Please email me if you would like to join the group:  This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you prefer to operate from your own station, put in a few hours for the glory of our state.  You'll enjoy!
