BC QSO Party 2014


Hello everyone near and far,

BCQP 2014 is coming up this weekend: 1600z Feb 1 to 0400z Feb 2.


BC stations give RS(T) + federal electoral district

Out-of-BC stations give RS(T) + province/state/DX

BC stations, you can contact anyone anywhere. Q potential is huge, especially if you CQ. Stations outside BC, you are on a treasure hunt to find as many BC stations as you can.

Regardless of where you are, the rewards for getting on the air are as varied as your locations, and the Qs you make may be ones that create memorable moments for radio amateurs new to our hobby.

Tangible Rewards

Certificates: Photo-based certificates and Orca-themed trinkets for top scores in every mode and power class

Plaques: Stations outside BC have a chance at six plaques: Top Score Canada outside BC, Top YL Score, Top Score US, Most Federal Electoral Districts Worked, Top Rookie (new) and Top DX (new)

Hope to hear you. We’ll have a(nother) whale of a good time!

73 and GL,
