Georgia QSO Party Rules


OBJECTIVE

For radio amateurs OUTSIDE of the state of Georgia to make contacts with as many Phone and/or CW Georgia stations in as many of the 159 Georgia counties as possible. Amateurs INSIDE the state of Georgia can make contacts with everyone.

CONTEST PERIOD

The Georgia QSO Party is held annually the second full weekend of April. There are two operating periods: 1800Z (2:00 pm EDST) Saturday until 0359Z (11:59 pm EDST) and Sunday and 1400Z (10:00 am EDST) to 2359Z. (7:59 pm EDST)

SUGGESTED FREQUENCIES

Look for SSB activity on the hour and CW on the half hour.

CATEGORIES

A ROVER station may have a non contest operating driver, for safety, and remain in the Single Operator category. If the Rover driver operates at any time in the contest, that Rover is in the Multi Operator category and enters as (RM).

ROVER stations must move the entire operating site at least 100 yards into the new county. ( Operating from a county line isn't allowed.)

It's suggested the ROVER stations send THEIR CALL/ GA County.

A specific callsign can only be used at ONE FIXED location.

NOTE: ASSISTED OPERATION IS ALLOWED - Nets and Spotting Clusters are allowed for all categories. Self-spotting is allowed. You don't need to submit your log as ASSISTED. Submit it as SINGLE-OP
