Please give us Photos and/or Videos of your NCQP 2018 operation! You can post photos to the NCQP Facebook page or the Yahoo Groups site. That’s probably easiest. We also have a Flickr page:
For larger files, like raw video, email Marc at: firstname.lastname@example.org and he’ll give you his DropBox account info. Photos or videos submitted do not have to be studio quality, nor do videos have to be edited. We’ll work on editing the images and videos when received. If there’s any question about how to get something to Marc, just email him at the address above.
The NC QSO Party 2018 cranks up at 1000 Eastern and runs until 2000. Can’t wait to see you all on the air!
Fire up your favorite logger, run it in QSO party mode, and make some Q’s.

The 2017 County Activity stats are posted on the County Activity page. While you’re there, browse the map of current operations planned for 2018. There’s still a lot of gray for us to fill in!
New to the 2018 North Carolina QSO Party is the “CAROLINA” Spelling Bee. Simply put, work counties in North and South Carolina where the first letter of the county name is contained in “CAROLINA” After all the letters are worked, you are eligible for a great certificate designed by our own NCQP artist extraordinaire, Marc, W4MPS, and be entered into a random drawing for a fabulous prize. Here are the particulars:
Work at least one QSO in each of the 8 required counties where the first letter of the county name is contained in the word “CAROLINA”
There are two A’s so there must be two different counties worked starting with the letter “A”
Counties included are all 146 from NC and SC. Your 8 letters can be all from one state or mixture of both.
You must participate in NC and SC parties and submit your regular log electronically via the website(s) to both. Even if all your 8 counties are in one state, you still must submit a log to both in order to be eligible. When submitting, click the link on the log upload page and fill out the electronic form. You will be asked which 8 counties you worked and your contact information.
Your personal certificate will be emailed to you in PDF format for printing or archiving at your discretion. You will also be entered into a random drawing for a $50 gift card for the Wireman! Winner will be announced at the time of results posting.
Have fun and see you in the event February 25! Marty / W4MY
