The NEQP is next weekend from 1 pm PDT Sat until 10 pm and 6 am PDT Sun
until 5 pm. This is the second best US QSO Party after the CQP. (The 7QP
is also on Saturday.) I will be driving the WA1Z rover for Bob. (WA1Z is
the Super Check Partial guy.) I hope to hear some SoCal guys.

I hope everyone is thinking ahead to the New England QSO Party on May 4th
The NEQP is a great time to check out antenna systems and radios outside of
the major contests. Plus - the focus will be working you. Activity is
usually very good - there's also the Italian DX contest the same weekend,
the on Saturday you'll be able to catch all of the W7 multipliers in the
We're working to make sure that all of the New England counties are active
again this year and would appreciate your help. Get on for at least an hour
or two and join in on the fun. Please let me know if you can put in any
time at all so we can work on activity from the rarest counties.
Oh yes, the NEQP is also lots of fun when mobile. Every time you cross a
county line the pileup starts over again. It's amazing what a 100w radio
and mobile whip can do.
The contest is 20 hours long overall, in two sections with a civilized
break for sleep Saturday night. It goes from 4pm Saturday until 1am Sunday,
then 9am Sunday until 8pm Sunday.
Last year we had logs from more than 50 YCCCers - and 400+ other stations.
You'll find that many of the participants will turn into future big gun
contesters aftere\ they figure it all out!

See if you can set a record or two!
Will you be QRV?
