Hot Bands For NAQP

The North American QSO Party starts at 1pm local EST tomorrow and band conditions are hot thanks to solar flares this week.

Right now DX Summit says the SFI is 150 with an A index = 3 and a K index of 0.

NAQP is an excellent contest for newcomers. It’s SSB on 160-10 meters and the exchange is your name and section. For me that’s Peter in Ontario.

With conditions like these, anybody with 100 watts (the contest power limit) and a dipole is going to have a blast.
