Arizona QSO Party-Club Campout!

October 14 @ 09:00 - October 15 @ 16:59


It’s that time once again.  AZ QSO Party.

October 13th, 14 and 15th.

Once again, we will be the bonus station, again.  I am hoping that we will have a larger turn out this year.  It would be nice to do some Digital as well.

This year we will not be renting the group site.  We will be using the individual sites.  So this will be a first come, first served type of campground.  You can’t reserve them.

Dennis mentioned that there is now a machine on site that hands out Red Rock Passes.  I guess they are $10 each, rather than the $8 for the Tonto Pass.  I will verify that through the Ranger just to make sure.
