The 2019 New Mexico QSO Party, which took place last April, was another great success. Hams from all over New Mexico, the United States, and the world took to HF and 6 meters for a day of fun and enjoyment. A huge thank you goes to the members and leadership of the Valencia County Amateur Radio Association who sponsored this year's event, as well as to the individuals and clubs who sponsored this year's plaque awards. And, of course, to every person and ham club who participated in the QSO Party.
