The 2017 FQP is in the books.  Thanks to everyone who participated in our 20th running!  Conditions were a struggle for most, producing scores that are down a bit, but we all made the most of it.

With 20 1×1 stations spelling “FLORIDA SUN” twice and 15 mobiles criss-crossing the state, plus many home stations, there was lots of activity.  541 stations spelled FLORIDA SUN with NS8O the first to do so in just over 35 minutes.  Here is the complete list of 1×1 sweepers: 2017 Sweepers

  Logs may be submitted by sending as an e-mail attachment to logs@floridaqsoparty.org or via other methods described in the rules.  So far, we already have 525 logs (not counting mobile counties) and over 107,000 QSOs represented in those logs. Every log helps, so please take a moment to submit yours.

  All-time FQP records are updated through 2016 (except for the individual FL Counties which are coming soon).  Check them out and plan your 2018 operating category!

  Thanks and very 73, Dan, K1TO

Some helps for the 2017 Florida QSO Party

Yes, paper logs may be submitted. Please send all paper logs to:
Via postal mail to: Florida QSO Party, c/o Ron Harps, K8NZ, 1997 Willow Glen Ln Columbus, OH 43229-1550.

QSL Procedures:

  • There is no need to send in your QSL cards this year. There is a QSL request form available for DX stations only available. For U.S. stations there is a form available for you to use for requesting QSL cards for the Spelling Bee stations.
  • Remember you must have worked at least one of each letter to qualify for the Sweeps certificate. This is not a participation certificate like you see elsewhere.
  • The form for the U.S. QSL request is only for 20 entries. If you’re wanting a card for both modes (and have worked FLORIDA SUN on both modes) then you can just send in 2 forms.
  • The DX stations may use the comments section of the form to request more than one QSL card but the log information must be complete when put into the Comments section.
