TARS is sponsoring another club contest. This contest will be based on the annual Florida QSO Party, April 25-26. Like last month’s club contest, TARS members will compete against each other within the framework of the international Florida QSO Party. The object is to work as many hams in as many states as possible.
Certificates will be awarded to the highest scores in the following categories:
- High Power (First and Second Place)
- Low Power (First and Second Place)
Certificates will be presented at the June TARS meeting.
Complete rules are provided in the previous post. The TARS rules will be similar to the regular Florida QSO Party rules, differing only in matters pertaining to TARS. The Florida QSO Party rules and full information about the contest can be found at http://www.floridaqsoparty.org/.
Logs must be submitted in Cabrillo format to Stan Zawrotny, K4SBZ, at K4SBZ.Stan@gmail.com within seven (7) days of the completion of the contest. Participants may submit logs to the sponsors of the Florida QSO Party as well as to TARS.
Further information can be obtained from Stan, K4SBZ, at K4SBZ.Stan@gmail.com. I have prepared a contest guide with additional information about how to operate in the contest for those who are new to contesting. It is in the second post before this one.
Have Some Fun
State QSO parties are fun contests. They are easy to do. Make one contact or a hundred. Let’s put Leon County and Tallahassee’s neighboring counties on the map this year.
Join the Fun!
