New Mexico QSO Party -- This Saturday!

Brian Mileshosky

Greetings —

The 2022 New Mexico QSO Party hits the HF, 6 meter, and 2 meter bands this Saturday from 8:00am MDT until 8:00pm MDT.

Our goal is for each of New Mexico’s 33 counties to have as many hams as possible operating throughout the event.  We have a number of empty counties to fill on the map, and some counties needing additional operators. 

Do you plan to participate...even if just for a short while?

If so, please let us know what county/counties you may operate from.  Even if your plans are just tentative at this point.  We will add your name and callsign to the county activation table and interactive map found on the NMQP website.  This information stokes participation from around the nation and helps the event’s mobile operators plan their routes around the state to activate counties needing more activity for all to enjoy.

This is a super event for new and experienced hams alike. Operate from the comfort of your home, combine forces with hams in your club as a club activity, invite a group of friends to your shack for a multi-op operation, hit the road as a mobile station, or rally friends and club members to set up -- Field Day style! -- as part of the special expedition category.

This year's New Mexico QSO Party is sponsored by the dedicated members and leadership of the Sandia Vista Amateur Radio Club.  Check out for additional details, and please invite other hams, mobile ops, or local clubs you know to participate in this Saturday's event.

We look forward to hearing lots of action on the bands.  And don't forget to submit your logs by April 23 (see rules for details)!

Thanks and 73,
