    Calling all youth hotshots!...
    As I have been part of NAQP (North America QSO Party) teams in the past, I was wandering if anyone would be interested in joining our team for the upcoming NAQP RTTY Contest. We could make future teams for CW & SSB too, but well try RTTY first. RTTY is almost like PSK31 so if you like PSK31, you will like RTTY too. You can run more power. You can run up to 100W only as with all NAQP Contests. It is a fun little contest and can help with WAS.

    The object is to work as many stations for NA on 10-80M in RTTY only. If you are interested leave a comment or email

    We will see how many people are interested in operating first. This is not going to be competitive, going to have fun and hopefully work some of you guys. 5 hams per team.

    Rules are at

    You ever operate RTTY before? You need software to do it, but thats easy and I'm guessing you already have it? OK I will keep it updated with other participants.

    Sign me up for SSB!

    Any PSK-31?

    How does this work? Are teams just different hams in different parts of the country or do they all gather together?

    Teams are from anywhere in the states or Canada. Contest is RTTY only very similar to PSK31. Objective work as many state provinces and states on different bands. 10-80M. Max power output < or = 100W. Work the station as many times as you want but only once per band. The team(s) will be the first 5 selected(if more we can make another team). Sorry for the short delay.

    The next SSB and CW NAQP are in the summer, sorry guys the idea just came to me now.

    Teams can be less than 5 if desired too. Our team will be composed of youth contesters.

    Right now teams temporarily are (for RTTY)
    1. VE6WTF - AB
    2. KC0VVU? - KS
    3. WQ2N - NJ
