QCWA Bulletin 2018-004 - Beta Version - QCWA QSO Party Logging Program

Thanks to the programming efforts of Yuriy Grishin, VA6ABR, QCWA now has another option for logging the QCWA QSO Party event.

This software is in a beta testing stage, and all feedback is greatly appreciated for improvements for next year. As well, Grishin has made his source code available to anyone wishing to making further improvements on their own accord.

To download the beta version go to https://mail2.ca/~ygrishin/public/qcwa-qso-logger/

The 2018 QSO Party begins on March 10 at 1800z, and runs for 24 hours. More information can be found at http://www.qcwa.org/qso-party.htm

At this time we have the following scheduled for activation of W2MM.

1800Z - 2400Z Saturday: Doug W6HB from the Battleship Iowa in Los Angeles

0001Z - 0300Z Sunday: (Saturday evening local) - Chapter 45 group from Lake Monroe, Florida - led by Rich WA3SXX

1300Z - 1800Z Sunday: Chapter 45 group from Lake Monroe, Florida - led by Rich WA3SXX

Stations who work W2MM during the QSO Party can claim 100 bonus points, thus making it a very popular call sign to work during the QCWA QSO Party.

Let the fun begin!
