QSO PARTY CHALLENGE
The NAQCC QSO Party Challenge is our version of the State QSO Party Challenge where only QRP CW contacts count.
Set Your Own Goal
For some, it's beating last year's score. Others are intent on hitting Gold or Platinum, edging out a friendly rival, or working the events with the bare minimal equipment. Just having fun operating is also acceptable.
Low-Key Contesting Practice
QSO Parties bridge the gap between our friendly sprints and “real” contesting. Speeds are generally lower and many of the in-state ops are more interested in filling the log for other goals or the joy of being the “DX” than racking up a high score.
Grab that Multiplier!
Even if you can't spend much time on a given weekend, fire up the rig long enough to grab two quick QSOs to earn the multiplier.
