Count Down to the Next Event - August 10th, 2024 !!!

The Maryland DC QSO Party is to promote HAM RADIO throughout the state of Maryland.and the District of Columbia.  The idea is to contact as many stations in Maryland and Washington DC.as possible

W3VPR is the host station for this event and by contacting W3VPR you will receive bonus points.

This event will get more MDC stations on the air and will give those out there that are COUNTY and GRID SQUARE hunters the opportunity to get some areas that may not be on the air as much.

This will be augmented by club members and others that will be in the ROVER class, moving from county to county to increase your chance of getting the low HAM population counties towards the mountains and the eastern shore.

Conditions permitting there could be up to 4 stations active under the W3VPR call on the bands that are specified in the rules. Each contact on a different band counts.

Be sure to read the rules and submit your entry in the time frame noted.
