    Florida QSO Party

    Since the re-introduction of the Florida QSO Party to the contest scene in 1998, the Florida QSO Party has become one of the fastest-growing and most popular State QSO Parties around today.
    This is due, in part, to the tremendous effort by the mobile teams to activate as many counties as they can in order to allow those participating from out-of-state, to achieve a county “Sweep” (working all 67 Florida Counties). Florida stations operating from home are also valuable, since that increases the chances that stations will work all counties!
    Regardless if you are a serious or casual participant … from Florida, or from outside of Florida … the Florida QSO Party was designed to be a FUN operating event. Why not give it a try?

    —————————————

    The Charlotte Amateur Radio Society is preparing for our Summer Field Day Event on June 25 – 26. Every June, more than 35,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio’s science, skill, and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933 and remains the most popular event in ham radio.

    Field Day is a 24-hour event. We will begin our setup on Saturday morning at 9:00 am. Lunch will take place at 12:00 noon and first contacts begin at 2:00 pm. We will operate for 24 hours and take down the equipment at 2:00 pm on Sunday.
