Texas QSO Party
sponsored by Northwest Amateur Radio Society http://txqp.net/
Operating times for the 2017 contest are from
1400Z on SATURDAY, September 23 to 0200Z on SUNDAY. September 24
and from 1400Z to 2000Z on SUNDAY, September 24.
Stations may work the entire contest period.
The Texas QSO party, sponsored by the Northwest Amateur Radio Society, a full-service ARRL recognized club in Northwest Houston, Texas, is scheduled on the last full weekend in September. We do this each year to encourage contacts between Texas amateur radio operators and amateur radio operators throughout the world.
One of the planning goals each year is to have operators in each of the 254 counties in Texas. This is the best - and in fact it may be the only - opportunity to make contact with operators in some Texas counties. For more information on operator density in Texas, see the Where are all the Hams website.
TQP mobile operators, be careful and have a good time. Fixed station operators, get on the air and look for the mobiles! Regardless of how you like to participate, get on the air, make some contacts, and have fun!
