The New England QSO Party will be held on May 5th and 6th, 2017.
It is 20 hours long overall, in two sections:
4PM (EDT) Saturday thru 1AM Sunday,
sleep for 8 hours,
and 9AM Sunday thru 8PM Sunday.
Operate CW, SSB and digital modes on 80-40-20-15-10 meters.
The NEQP is a great time to check out antenna systems and offers a moderately paced opportunity to work new states and countries. You’ll find a wide variety of participants, from newcomers to experienced contesters, all interested in making contacts with New England stations.
For each QSO, give your callsign, a signal report and your county/state.
