The Texas QSO party
September 29 @ 8:00 am - September 30 @ 8:00 pm
The Texas QSO party, sponsored by the Northwest Amateur Radio Society, a full-service ARRL recognized club in Northwest Houston, Texas, is scheduled on the last full weekend in September. We do this each year to encourage contacts between Texas amateur radio operators and amateur radio operators throughout the world.
One of the planning goals each year is to have operators in each of the 254 counties in Texas. This is the best – and in fact it may be the only – opportunity to make contact with operators in some Texas counties.
Change for 2018:
Texas mobile stations that change counties are considered to be a new station and may be worked again for QSO and multiplier credit. Texas mobile stations operating on a 2, 3, or 4 county lines may be counted as 2, 3, or 4 QSOs and multipliers. Separate log entries must be entered for each county/QSO by both Texas and Non Texas stations. County lines, whether water or land are defined as per County Hunter rules. A multiplier counts once, regardless of the number of bands or modes it is worked on.
