W2RCA and the Radio Club of America invite all members and fellow radio amateurs to join in our Spring QSO party.
An SSB-only event, the objective is for members to meet and QSO fellow members, and for budding members to meet the RCA on-the-air.
We will do three bands, to allow East to West coast openings on the various bands: 75,40, and 20m. Feel free to make a QSO on each band as a separate contact. A certificate will be issued to the RCA member with the greatest number of combined 20M/40M/75M QSO’s, and to a non-member for working the greatest number of RCA members. A special bonus is given for working W2RCA, of 10 equivalent QSO’s. W2RCA will be on the air and looking for you!
We encourage everyone to go a bit beyond the usual contest exchange, and have fun rag chewing a bit.
W2RCA will issue special QSL’s to all who participate and we are looking forward to working you. BE SURE TO SPOT W2RCA so others can find the Club station!
