TQP Has A New Sponsor!

The Texas QSO Party sponsorship has been assumed by the Texas DX Society, effective February 1, 2019. This website will remain alive until the new webmaster has fully vetted the new hosting arrangement. Thanks to everyone for your support and understanding while this transition takes place. Check back often for updates and new information for the contest this year.

Texas QSO Party

The Texas QSO party, sponsored by the Texas DX Society, a full-service ARRL recognized club in Houston, Texas, is scheduled on the last full weekend in September. We do this each year to encourage contacts between Texas amateur radio operators and amateur radio operators throughout the world. 

One of the planning goals each year is to have operators in each of the 254 counties in Texas. This is the best - and in fact it may be the only - opportunity to make contact with operators in some Texas counties. For more information on operator density in Texas, see the Where are all the Hams website.

TQP mobile operators, be careful and have a good time. Fixed station operators, get on the air and look for the mobiles! Regardless of how you like to participate, get on the air, make some contacts, and have fun!
