New Mexico QSO Party -- 2022 Results posted
The 2022 New Mexico QSO Party, which took place last April, was another great success and results have been posted! Hams from all over New Mexico, the United States, and the world took to HF, 6 meters, and 2 meters for a day of fun and enjoyment. This was another action packed year in terms of logs submitted, which we attribute to better propagation, hams rediscovering the magic of radio, and the super fun State QSO Party Challenge.
A huge thank you goes to the members and leadership of the Sandia Vista Amateur Radio Club (based out of Placitas, NM) 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.
Here are some statistics from this year's event:
— Logs submitted: 259
— Total NMQP QSOs logged: 7,392
— Unique New Mexico stations logged: 116
— New Mexico logs submitted: 46
