Arizona QSO Party in 2016? PDF Print E-mail

Yes!  Yes we will!

Due to circumstances not entirely within our control, we are very late getting 2015 scores, results, awards, plaques and certificates distributed.  Our deepest apologies for the inconvenience.  Rest assured, results ARE being worked and should be out the end of the month (July).

That being said, we are getting inquiries whether we'll be having the Arizona QSO Party in 2016.  And the answer is:  of course, we will!  A representative will be at the Williams Hamfest July 22-23 to provide rules, distribute flyers, and answer any questions regarding the Arizona QSO Party.  This website will be updated as soon as possible with 2016 rules and flyers, with planned operatioins to follow.

Thank you for your understanding!

AE4M

FIRST AZ QSO PARTY

K3TW

BAND CONDITIONS WERE ONLY FAIR THIS YEAR.

K4VBM

ENJOYED MY 1ST ARIZONA QSO PARTY! GREAT FUN!

K6CSL

I WAS RAISED IN PHOENIX. IT'S ALWAYS NICE TO WORK STATIONS IN MY "HOME" STATE. 73'S, BERT, K6CSL

K7ANT

I only got to work a few hours.  I had lots of fun from here in Navajo county. Will try to work it longer next year.

K9GDF

ANTENNA IS RAIN GUTTER AND DOWNSPOUTS.

KB1VUN

TOUGH CONDITIONS ON SATURDAY, SEE YOU AGAIN IN 7QP

KD5ILA

GREAT TIME.  WORKED ALL I HEARD.  VERTICAL ANTENNA DOWN SO ALL CONTACTS MADE ON 160M DELTA LOOP HORIZONAL AT 10 FEET.

KD5ILA

KD9AEZ

First contest ever!  JUST HAD A LITTLE FUN OVER THE WEEKEND! 73

KD9DEY

I'm new to contesting and logging software (N1MM).

KG7ULZ

Am newly licensed.  My first log submission.  Great (first) contest!  I worked mostly the club station K7T, only a few at my home.

KK6PLG

Really tough band conditions on the west coast this weekend :)

N1CC

WRITELOG DOES NOT SUPPORT AZQP.  CREATED WITH PAQP TEMPLATE, THEN CORRECTED.  PLEASE NOTE THAT THE 5-CHARCTER AZXXX WOULD NOT WORK IN THE WRITELOG AND WAS ENTERED AS XXX AND THEN CHANGED TO AZXXX MANUALLY.  NO SCORING IS DONE BY WRITE LOG, THERE IS NO SUMMARY SHEET THAT FITS.  NEVER HEARD THE BONUS STATION.

N7MZW

KENWOOD TS-950SD, HEIL BM-10, AND G5RV UP 50 FEET, RUNNING N-S AT 6,053 FEET ELEVATION FROM LARAMIE COUNTY, WY. APARTMENT QTH.

N9WL

THANKS FOR THE NEW COUNTIES.

NA2X

KENWOOD TS480HX - 200W, 40/20 FAN DIPOLE, DRAKE MN2000 TUNER

VE8NSD

MY FAVORITE EXCHANGE: I GIVE THE GUY HIS INFO; SERIAL NUMBER AND NOVEMBER TANGO. HE RESPONDS WITH "THANK YOU FOR NORTH TORONTO."   I'M GONNA BE GIGGLING ABOUT THAT FOR A LONG TIME!

W1END

RIG WAS FTDX5000 AND BUTTERNUT HF6V ALL-BAND VERTICAL.

W7ON

RULES PROPOSAL:  AZQP WOULD BE MORE REWARDING AND ENCOURAGE MORE AZ OPS IF COUNTY MULTIPLIERS WERE ALLOWED FOR EVERYONE.  IN-STATE QS ARE FAR MORE DIFFICULT THAN OUT-OF-STATE QS AND SHOULD BE REWARDED WITH A MULT.

W8KNO

Ran assisted so I could be SOSRTwoContest, only did it for 1 1/2 hrs.  Enjoyed the QP even though conditions were not great.  Thanks to everyone who worked me.

WB6ETY

I WORKED EVERY STATION I CALLED; ALL FIVE OF THEM.  WISH I HAD MORE TIME.

WN7Y

We had a good time and I got two brand new hams in the shack during the contest to make some contacts!

WX7JM

Hello, I have participated in the contest and I wanted to send you the logs from the contest to see how I did against the rest of the operators. This was my 1st QSO Party from AZ so I had lots of fun.  73's!
