2003 Oregon QSO Party

Oregon stations work everyone, others work Oregon stations only.


OR stations give RST and county, others give RST and state, province or country.

Count 1 point per SSB QSO, 2 points per CW QSO. No repeater QSOs. Work stations once per band and mode. Mobile stations may be worked again as they enter new counties. Contacts with/by stations located on the border of two counties count as two QSOs; 3 counties, 3 QSOs, etc. Non-OR stations multiply QSO points by the number of OR counties worked.

All stations may earn one extra multiplier for each 8 QSOs in the same OR county. However, county border stations may count one QSO (not 2/3/4) per contact towards this extra multiplier.
