|CQ INQP CQ INQP|
The purpose of the Indiana QSO Party (INQP) is to encourage contact with Indiana amateur radio stations by other Indiana hams and hams worldwide. Stations outside of Indiana work Indiana stations only. Indiana stations work everybody, including other Indiana stations. See the rules for the rest of the details.
INQP 2017 takes place May 6-7 (the first Saturday in May).
The 2017 rules are now available. There one important change this year: The county name abbreviations have changed. The intent is that the new abbreviations will be more compatible with the other QSO Parties that occur at the same time as INQP.
Please announce your operating plans on the email reflector (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can see what others have planned on the Activity Map.
The INQP is a great time to work on your Worked All Indiana Award. It only takes 60 confirmed counties to earn the initial certificate. Your INQP QSOs count as confirmed QSOs toward your WAI. Just indicate the INQP QSOs on your GCR, and we'll use your submitted log to confirm the QSOs.
This year marks 200 years of Indiana statehood. In conjunction with the Bicentennial celebration, HDXCC is pleased to offer a pair of special certificates. All the details may be found here.
You are invited to join the INQP reflector. Post your questions about the INQP, make suggestions for next year, or just jump in the general discussion with other participants and the organizers.
