VA QSO Party 16-17 March
Paul Wilson KI4PW
As mentioned on Tuesday night's net, the Virginia QSO Party will be held on 16 and 17 March. Operating hours are 10 am-12 midnight (local) on Saturday March 16, and 8 am - 8 pm (local) on Sunday March 17. Exchange is QSO serial number and three-character county or independent city abbreviation.
There are no rule changes from last year.
We always have strong showing with number of QSOs and logs submitted. If you are a club member, make sure you include "Arlington ARC" in the appropriate field of your submitted log.
I hope to operate for at least part of the day on Saturday and Sunday.
Last couple of years 80 meters has been the hot spot for in-state QSOs. Now that I have an outdoor VHF antenna I've upped my totals for 2m contacts. Calling frequency on VHF is 146.580 MHz simplex.
