Just a friendly reminder that the 2009 Missouri QSO Party (MQP) is underway.
Missouri QSO Party is sponsored by the Boeing Employees' Amateur Radio Society (link). CW frequencies are 40 kHz from the lower band edge. SSB frequencies are 1880, 3980, 7180, 14280, 21380, and 28380. Exchange is RST, serial number, Missouri county, or state, province, country.
- The object of the contest is to work as many stations as possible during the contest period, to provide all licensed radio amateurs outside the state of Missouri the opportunity to work Missouri counties, and to provide all licensed radio amateurs in Missouri an opportunity to work other states and countries.
- The use of spotting assistance or nets (operating arrangements involving other individuals, DX-alerting nets, packet clusters, etc.) not physically located at the station will be permitted.
- Contacts through repeaters, digipeaters, and gateways will not be permitted. However, the use of these means to solicit a simplex contact during the contest period will be permitted—stations may spot themselves.
