The 2017 PAQSO Party
October 14 and 15, 2017

We are always on the second full weekend of October every year


The 2017 Party Rules have been posted on our website

Not much has changed in the rules except the Bonus Station

The Bonus Station for the 2017 PAQSO Party is the Frankford Radio Club, and will be operating under the callsigns
W3FRC, W3F, W3R, and W3C

The Records have been updated for the 2017 PAQSO Party.

We had some long Standing records fall this year, and a few super Ops continue to break their own records

PAQSO does not have an assisted class, so spotting is allowed

PAQSO Party Spotting page is here

We now have a Facebook page at Pennsylvania QSO Party
