Please report your score to https://www.3830scores.com/

Please send in your log, no matter how big or how small here: http://www.b4h.net/hqp/hqpsubmitlog.php

Non Cabrillo logs of any format can be emailed to me directly although Cabrillo is much preferred.

The only changes from before is a new definition of the district boundaries which are based on zip codes. A map can be found here: http://www.mapability.com/ei8ic/maps/hawaii_qso_party_regions.php

While most QSO parties use their counties as multipliers, here in Hawaii we only have five counties so we've expanded the multiplier list to use “districts” instead which roughly follow the ancient Moku.

Also, the KS and OH QSO parties will be running at the same time. There's no problem working those folks and logging them with the county names they give you assuming your logging program allows you to do that. Send a copy of your log to those QSO Party organizers and also to HQP at the above URL Note, if you work someone in Lana'i please use the abbreviation LNI rather than LAN which may be confused with LANE county in Kansas.

All digital modes are considered “digital” so there are three modes to use: CW, Phone, Digital.

Hopefully, the WX will cooperate and we'll have some excellent conditions.

With Aloha,

Alan AD6E / KH6TU

HQP Chairman
