Amateur Radio This Week: #17   Leave a comment

This week, I started out by knocking out my NM QSO Party log. I submitted it a mere few minutes before the deadline, claiming 53,370 points. I made 191 QSOs from 8 counties, picking up 35 states, and 2 Canadian Provinces.

I checked into the Albuquerque SCAT Net at least once last week as well, announcing the Socorro amateur radio test session that occurred on 4/24.

Speaking of which, we had our licensing exam, and several folks from my amateur radio class took and passed the Technician class exam! I am watching to see when their licenses are in the FCC database.

Thank you for reading my post.


NM QSO Party – Planned Route   Leave a comment

Here is my planned route for the NM QSO Party:


At first, it seems pretty boring and short, which it is. However, I will have just completed an overnight shift at work, so I’m not going to promise more than 6 or 7 hours of driving after that. Even so, this route will let me run:

Sandoval, NM
Bernalillo, NM
Torrance, NM
Guadalupe, NM
De Baca, NM
Lincoln, NM
Chaves, NM

Depending on how I feel, I can expand this trip in several places and perhaps get a few more. If you request a specific county or band, let me know via the comments section, and I’ll see if I can swing it.
