No HF here. I monitored 50.130 for most of the day as I did work around the house.  I had a single ssb QSO with NM5WB in Rio Rancho.  He called CQ on that frequency about once per hour without any more contacts as far as I could tell.  In the early evening I asked him what he had managed on 6m.  Besides me, he worked AI5I on 50.125.  I had the beam pointed at Arizona.

Weather for NM QSO PArty

James Duffey
 

Snowing a bit here but not bad and some ice. If weather gets worse as we travel north, I will change my route and go south, so my route may change from what I published. Look at APRS.fi for my location.

I think that the worst of the weather will be gone by the time we get further north, but one never knows. - Duffey

too. Keep a log (including time, band, and mode for each QSO), and we
can help you submit an official entry later if you need help. The
exchange for those of us in NM is name and county, and the folks
outside of NM will send name and state (or Canadian province or DX

N5SJ/M itinerary - NM QSO Party

Here is our itinerary for the NM QSO Party Saturday. Mike N5SJ will operate while Ken, KG5IDN will drive the Cool Bus. If propagation is good, you should be able to find me pretty much anytime around the suggested frequencies. I will also have APRS so you can track our progress.
This will be a kind of a test for the new antennas. Using the Reverse Beacon Network we compared the verticals to a 40 meter dipole up 35' and were pretty close, amazing ourselves. We will see what the real world has to say about that.
Please do not text or call during the contest about arranging QSOes or frequencies as that is forbidden in the rules. There is a suggestion in the rules about NM stations going to the suggested operating frequencies at the top of the hour to work other NM stations, and I will try to do that.

We will operate mainly 40M CW and SSB and 20M CW and SSB.

It easy for us to get behind or ahead of schedule, so don’t hold me to this exact schedule, but we will try as best as we can.

Time in (UTC/MDT) County Time out (UTC/MDT)

1400/0800 Sandoval/Bernalillo 1445/0845 45 min.

1445/0845 in motion Bernalillo 1530/0930 45 min.

Re: New Mexico QSO Party -- Next Saturday!

Michael Daly
 

Ken, KG5IDN, and I will also be roving in his Cool Bus. Ken has improved his antennas substantially and we are looking to make many Q’s on 40 & 20.  Please keep your ears out for us.  No six meters this time.

6M SSB most certainly WILL work very well within the state and four corners area and CW even better.  Ground wave and ionoscatter are good modes for a pair of well equipped stations. Unfortunately, just like most times when there ARE good conditions, it appears to be more popular to hang out on one 'channel' running slow digital rate 😉

 

I had suggested times for 6M activity during the QSO party but there was little to no follow up conversation.

 

I'll be watching for NM stations on 40M the first couple of contest hours and  also chasing Duffy around.

Greetings —

 

The 2019 New Mexico QSO Party will help fill the HF and 6 meter bands next Saturday, April 13.

 

Will you and/or your amateur radio club be joining the fun with hams across New Mexico, the nation, and globe?

 

If so, please let us know which county/counties you’ll be operating from, whether for a couple hours or the entire event (even if tentative), so we can reflect it on the County Activation Plan list/map found on the NMQP website.

 

We are striving for all of New Mexico’s 33 counties to be on the air during the event, and hope you’ll help us achieve this goal again by joining in the fun.

 

Please see the announcement below and visit the New Mexico QSO Party website, at www.newmexicoqsoparty.org, for complete details.

Fellow New Mexico Hams --

The 2019 New Mexico QSO Party takes place Saturday, April 13 from 8:00am MDT until 8:00pm MDT, and all Hams across New Mexico are invited to participate.  Amateur radio operators from across the United States -- and the world -- will be seeking New Mexicans on HF and 6 meters during the event period, looking particularly to work hams in as many New Mexico counties as possible.  The Land of Enchantment will essentially be the "DX" on this day, making for a great time for all who participate.  Last year hundreds of amateur radio operators around the world participated, including 98 New Mexico hams and 18 New Mexico amateur radio clubs.

We are looking for hams within each and every one of New Mexico's 33 counties to participate in the 2019 New Mexico QSO Party, whether for just a few convenient hours or for the entire 12 hour period.

This is a super event for new and experienced hams alike. Operate from the comfort of your home, or combine forces with hams in your club as a club activity.  Invite a group of friends to your shack.  Hit the road as a mobile station and activate multiple counties which create much needed -- and appreciated -- point multipliers for everyone who participates in the QSO Party.  Use this event as an opportunity to introduce a neighbor or friend to ham radio.  Or rally friends and club members to set up, Field Day style, as part of the special expedition category.

ATTENTION HAM CLUBS: The New Mexico QSO Party is a superb club-building activity, and there are two special awards available just for clubs.  The first is a plaque that will be awarded to the New Mexico club with the highest aggregate score submitted by its members. Another plaque will be awarded to the New Mexico Club whose members activate the highest aggregate number of New Mexico counties around the state. It doesn't matter what operating category your members participate in, or for how long; each entrant just needs to clearly mark their club name in their individual logs and your club will be automatically entered. Complete details in the New Mexico QSO Party rules.

This year's event is hosted by the Valencia County Amateur Radio Association.  Great-looking plaques will be awarded and participation certificates will be available for those desiring one.  Complete details, rules, prize information, and more can be found on the New Mexico QSO Party website at www.NewMexicoQSOParty.org

Are you planning to get on the air and operate from your home shack, with friends, alongside your club at its club station, mobile, or portable?  Even if tentative at this point, please visit www.NewMexicoQSOParty.org and let us know what county (or counties) you plan to operate from so we can list you on the NM QSO Party website’s activation table and interactive map.  Our goal is to have as many hams as possible operating from all of New Mexico counties during the event.


Please help spread the word about the 2019 New Mexico QSO Party.  With your help we look forward to all 33 counties being activated this year.  See you on the air in about a month!

This year's event is hosted by the Valencia County Amateur Radio Association.  Great-looking plaques will be awarded and participation certificates will be available for those desiring one.  Complete details, rules, prize information, and more can be found on the New Mexico QSO Party website at www.NewMexicoQSOParty.org

Are you planning to get on the air and operate from your home shack, with friends, alongside your club at its club station, mobile, or portable?  Even if tentative at this point, please visit www.NewMexicoQSOParty.org and let us know what county (or counties) you plan to operate from so we can list you on the NM QSO Party website’s activation table and interactive map.  Our goal is to have as many hams as possible operating from all of New Mexico counties during the event.


Please help spread the word about the 2019 New Mexico QSO Party.  With your help we look forward to all 33 counties being activated this year.  See you on the air in about a month!

My take on this thread is that there is no need for me to waste my time looking west on 6 meters for my remaining WANMG grids on MSK144 or FT8 this coming weekend.

Hi Mike —

Yes, that is correct.  Name + County/State/Province/DX Entity.  Using the name within the exchange has been to do something a bit different, even a bit more personable to many, than the nearly always constant “59” or “5NN” that’s used in other events.

All of the logging software out there that supports NMQP is expecting the exchange format above.  We plan to look into how FT8 could fit into the event in the future.

The 2019 New Mexico QSO Party will help fill the HF and 6 meter bands next Saturday, April 13.

Will you and/or your amateur radio club be joining the fun with hams across New Mexico, the nation, and globe?

If so, please let us know which county/counties you’ll be operating from, whether for a couple hours or the entire event (even if tentative), so we can reflect it on the County Activation Plan list/map found on the NMQP website.

We are striving for all of New Mexico’s 33 counties to be on the air during the event, and hope you’ll help us achieve this goal again by joining in the fun.

Fellow New Mexico Hams --

The 2019 New Mexico QSO Party takes place Saturday, April 13 from 8:00am MDT until 8:00pm MDT, and all Hams across New Mexico are invited to participate.  Amateur radio operators from across the United States -- and the world -- will be seeking New Mexicans on HF and 6 meters during the event period, looking particularly to work hams in as many New Mexico counties as possible.  The Land of Enchantment will essentially be the "DX" on this day, making for a great time for all who participate.  Last year hundreds of amateur radio operators around the world participated, including 98 New Mexico hams and 18 New Mexico amateur radio clubs.

We are looking for hams within each and every one of New Mexico's 33 counties to participate in the 2019 New Mexico QSO Party, whether for just a few convenient hours or for the entire 12 hour period.

This is a super event for new and experienced hams alike. Operate from the comfort of your home, or combine forces with hams in your club as a club activity.  Invite a group of friends to your shack.  Hit the road as a mobile station and activate multiple counties which create much needed -- and appreciated -- point multipliers for everyone who participates in the QSO Party.  Use this event as an opportunity to introduce a neighbor or friend to ham radio.  Or rally friends and club members to set up, Field Day style, as part of the special expedition category.

ATTENTION HAM CLUBS: The New Mexico QSO Party is a superb club-building activity, and there are two special awards available just for clubs.  The first is a plaque that will be awarded to the New Mexico club with the highest aggregate score submitted by its members. Another plaque will be awarded to the New Mexico Club whose members activate the highest aggregate number of New Mexico counties around the state.

KK6MC/M IN NM QSO PARTY

James Duffey
 

Here is my itinerary for the NM QSO Party. I will have a driver, so if propagation is good, you should be able to find me pretty much anytime around the suggested frequencies. I will also have APRS so you can track my progress, but no guarantee as to coverage as some of the route is through remote and lightly populated areas. Please do not text or call during the contest about arranging QSOes or frequencies as that is forbidden in the rules. There is a suggestion in the rules about NM stations going to the suggested operating frequencies at the top of the hour to work other NM stations, and I will try to do that.

I will operate mainly 40CW and 20M CW and phone. The antenna is a bit narrow banded to operate 40 phone with good results, but I can try low in the band, if you want to try a qso. I had marginal luck with that in the OK QSO party.

It easy for me to get behind or ahead of schedule, so don’t hold me to this exact schedule, but I will try as best as I can.
