The Georgia QSO Party is scheduled to occur the weekend of April 11th, 2020. Please help me communicate this information to your club about the 2020 QSO Party.
The state of Georgia has implemented a stay at home order thru at least April 13th due to the large number of COVID-19 virus cases in Georgia. This order is effective starting Friday April 3rd, 2020. Based on the travel restrictions in Georgia and the importance of rover operations in the GQP the decision has been made by the GQP leadership to shorten the 2020 QSO Party to a one day event. It will be held on Saturday April 11th, 2020 from 1600-0400z. Due to travel restrictions within Georgia mobile operations will not be allowed. Multi-Op operations will only be allowed if remote operation technology is used that will allow social distancing or if the operation takes place from a shared family station.
Since many counties will not be active this year since rover operations will not be allowed I encourage everyone to get on from home to increase activity in the QSO Party. If you have a club call sign it’s OK to use it and your home call sign at the same fixed location. You just can’t use both at the same time.
