Kansas to Offer State QSO Party in August

Stations working on their Triple Play Award or Year of the State QSO Party Award will want to be on the air on Saturday, August 29th and Sunday, August 30th as Kansas will hold their first QSO Party since 2002.  The 2009 contest is sponsored by the Boeing Employee Amateur Radio Society of Wichita, KS and the Santa Fe Trail ARC of Olathe, KS. 

Kansas Section Manager Ron Cowan, KB0DTI, said that interest has been high for starting the event up again. "I had many hams inquiring about the Kansas State QSO Party," Cowan said. "We are encouraging Kansas stations to "register" with us and work 20 meters in the afternoon hours. This will help to tackle the demand of the state -- and its many rare counties -- for several Amateur Radio awards, including the County Hunters, ARRL's Triple Play, and Year of the State QSO Party."

If you are a KS radio amateur or you will be active as a rover in the state of Kansas during the Kansas QSO Party - all 105 counties need to be activated!  Please send an email to to register your interest and document your county activation(s).


The Kansas QSO Party runs from 1400 UTC Saturday, August 29th to 0200 UTC Saturday, August 30th and from 1400 UTC Sunday, August 30th, 2009 to 2000 UTC Sunday, August 30th, 2009.  Active bands will include 160, 80, 40, 20, 15, 10, 6 and 2m.  Complete rules and forms can be found on the Kansas QSO Party web page at Don't miss your chance to work some of the rarest counties in the country -- get in on the fun of the Kansas QSO Party!
