2015 Idaho QSO Party schedule

Last Update: 13 March–added frequencies below

WW7D will be /M for the 2015 run of the Idaho QSO party. Last year’s run was a tremendously enjoyable blitz of 26 counties in south Idaho. In planning this year’s run, I spent some time trying to squeeze in an extra county or two, and succeeded in adding Lehmi County to the mix in exchange for a bit of sleep on Saturday night.

Here is what I have for a schedule. Updates, with a date, will be noted at the top of the page. The first column of times is the scheduled county line crossing. The duration of a stop on a county line or in a single county is shown in bold:

Frequencies
I’ll be on phone and cw on 80 to 10 (whatever band is open) looking for a slot in the “mobile window”:

Mobile Windows. Idaho fixed stations should not call CQ or “run” stations in this mobile “window”.

  • CW 7.025-7.030, 14.040-14.050, 21.040-21.050, 28.040-28.050 MHZ
  • SSB 7.265-7.275, 14.265-14.275*, 21.340-21.350, 28.480-28.490 MHz

*An exception is 20 phone, where I usually end up closer to 14.330, just to find a empty frequency.
