“The next Hawaii QSO Party (HQP) will be held the fourth full weekend in
August which is Aug 23-25. This year no more hurricanes (fingers
crossed) so no need to hunker down and stay off the air. There will be a
lot of activity out there to work. Hawaii stations work everyone.
Everyone else works Hawaii. Exchange is a signal report and your Hawaii

All the Rules and other info:

Please note that the Ohio and Kansas QSO Parties will also be active
that weekend. You can work as many of them as you want. The more the
better. Normally you would log an Ohio station as OH, but if they send
you their county name, you can log that instead and still get credit for
OH. Same with the Kansas party.

HQP is supported by many logging programs such as N1MM, Writelog,
Snookum (for Apple), N3FPJ, and others.

Please send all questions to
