NA QSO Party (CW) today with RGO One

I plan to operate several hours today in the NA QSO Party and will be using the RGO One.

This is a fun contest for several reasons:
  • Lots of participation
  • Only 12 hours long
  • Both high-speed and slow-speed ops
  • Easy exchange
  • 100 watt limit

Details of the contest are here (pdf). It begins at noon CST and ends at midnight.


  1. I operated about 9 hours using my K3. Lots of fun...

  2. It was fun. I operated sporadically but hope to devote more time to this one next time.

  3. Dear John,

    I will be participating in FOC Marathon this weekend (31Jan-2Feb) all bands. I will be happy to make QSO as I will be using also RGO ONE to test it in real traffic. Do not worry that it is only for FOC members. Do not hesitate to call me if you will hear me. CU, Petr OK1RP

    1. Sounds good Petr - I'll set an alert for your callsign so I'll know when you're spotted to the DX Cluster. Hopefully, propagation will be good to us!
      73 and GL in the contest,

      John AE5X
