The 2022 Florida QSO Party was held the weekend of April 30th – May 1st. 25 years – wow! Despite challenges from many angles – The sun, weather, etc… The 25th FQP was a huge success! The Out-of-State support combined with Florida’s over 100 fixed stations, 8 mobiles and 5 expeditions made for an epic weekend ! Logs are rolling in (see the Rules tab and page down to Reporting)
Since the re-introduction of the Florida QSO Party to the contest scene in 1998, the Florida QSO Party has become one of the fastest growing and most popular State QSO Parties around today. This is due, in part, to the tremendous effort by the mobile teams to activate as many counties as they can in order to allow those participating from out-of-state, to achieve a county “Sweep” (working all 67 Florida Counties). Florida stations operating from home are also valuable, since that increases the chances that stations will work all counties! Regardless if you are a serious or casual participant from Florida, or from outside of Florida, the Florida QSO Party was designed to be a FUN operating event. Why not give it a try?
