W4NC 2023 QSO Parties

February 25, 2023 @ 10:00 am February 26, 2023 @ 8:00 pm

Every February hams in the Carolina’s come together to participate in each other’s QSO Parties.  South Carolina leads off on Saturday, February 25th and North Carolina takes over on Sunday, February 26th.  A QSO party is a statewide event with the objective of contacting as many stations as possible.  It has become a FARC tradition to host an open house at our club station for both those days.  We cordially invite club members and non-members alike to join us at the Red Cross building at 650 Coliseum Dr. in Winston-Salem.

Attendees will get a chance to operate our station on both days and either learn or hone their amateur radio contesting and operating skills.  Newbies are especially invited to learn good operating procedures from more experienced hams and see how much fun operating in QSO parties can be.  The QSO Parties schedule is as follows:

South Carolina:        Saturday February 25th from 10:00 AM until 9:00 PM EST

North Carolina:         Sunday,  February 26th from 10:00 AM until 8:00 PM EST

Doors open about 9:00 AM each day.  Please join us for an hour, a day or both days and have fun operating the station or just stop by for a cup of coffee, a doughnut and some in-person rag chewing.
