Colorado QSO Party


CO stations work everyone and send Name and county. Multipliers are the 50 US states + DC + 14 VE + DXCC, per mode - CW, PH and Digital (RTTY, PSK).

Mobiles: Change your sent county in the logger when you log QSOs in a different county. You can do this without exiting the logger.


Others work Colorado only and send Name and state/province/DXCC. Multipliers are the 64 Colorado counties, per mode - CW, PH and Digital (RTTY, PSK).

Digital modes are shown as RY in the Cabrillo file. Work county line stations as 2 QSOs.
QSO points: CW/Digital = 2  PH = 1. Work stations on 3 modes.

Power mults: 3 for 5W or less, 2 for 150W or less and 1 if more than 150W was used. Click the [Multi/Bonus] button to setup TX power multiplier. Re-load log to update score.

Score = (QSO points  X  mults)  X  the TX power multiplier.

County abbreviations are normally the first three letters of the county. Check the list for exceptions.
