CountiesThe object of the Florida QSO Party is to activate each and every one of the 67 Florida counties on the week end the Florida QSO Party is held (on April 29 & April 30 (2017) this year). The pages below explain more about working the Florida QSO Party and the Florida counties themselves.
- County Activation Form – Input form for those inside Florida who’ll be activating Florida counties.
- K0RC FQP Excel workbook (poke around for a few other goodies)
- Counties On The Air – This is the official list of Florida counties along with the 3-letter designators for each county. This list contains links to the activation plans of FQP participants inside the state. Please keep a copy of this listing nearby when you are operating. There is a link on this page where you can download a PDF file which you can print out for your operating position. Having the incorrect designators in your submitted logs will cause you to lose points.
PLEASE NOTE: Many of these announced operations will be part-time efforts only. If YOUR county (or the county or counties you’re planning to operate from) is/are already listed, please don’t let that stop you from getting on the air anyway! Also note the mode’s being activated – someone may only be doing SSB or CW (or both) – so feel free to fill in any gaps you can.
