Ohio QSO Party

posted Aug 18, 2016, 8:26 AM by K8CY ACARC   [ updated Aug 18, 2016, 9:37 AM ]

The 2016 Ohio QSO Party will be on August 27, 2016.
Why join the party? To get on the air, have fun, and work a few (or many!) like minded hams
during the contest period. In the Ohio QSO Party (OhQP), Ohioans are the “DX” and are sought
out. Simple antennas can easily generate pileups or work most anyone you can hear, so get on
and join the fun!
