(September 3, 2010) The New York QSO Party announces Rookie Operator class!

The NYQP has instituted a new entry class for operators that have received their Amateur Radio ticket since January 1, 2007. The Rookie Operator Award will feature a NYQP plaque to the operator with the best NYQP score for 2010.

Compete with others rookies that are also new to our great hobby. Let the folks with towers, amps and experience fight among themselves! Just follow the NYQP rules (http://www.nyqp.org/rules.php) and enter as a Single Operator using Low Power. We will take care of the rest.

With a QSO Party primarily for US/Canadian stations, signals are sure to be strong. See if radio contesting is for you (it was for me!). Learn about propagation, search & pouncing, running, logging software and more. You will finish a better operator... guaranteed.

This award can only be presented to an operator once. Will the very first honor be yours?  Learn more at: http://www.nyqp.org/faq.php 

Get ready for the NYQP! October 16, 2010. http://www.nyqp.org/
