YLISSB QSO Party Guidelines:


1. Any and all within confines of license, no repeater use.

2. 14.332 for DX and handicapped may initiate contacts during the
normal course of rotation as long as a control station is taking
a log.

(Note: A log does not consist of 1 or 2 check-ins and nullifies
contacts for QSO Party).

14.332 shall remain open as long as there is a willing control

Contacts initiated on 14.332 by US members to any station do not
count for QSO Party purposes.

3. Check 40 and 80 meters on the hour, 15 meters on the half hour.

Awards Applications:

1. May be sent in the form of cassette for those members who are
unable to write their contacts. We will happily score your
worksheet as this is a party and those who wish to participate
should be able to do so.

Don’t forget to indicate the time of your contacts.

2. Only a YLISSB member may win the ZL award.

3. WAC determines continent; DXCC determines country status.

4. KH and KL count as both DX and US.


1. YL/OM family relatives only.

2. You may work N4KNF/N4ZGH as one team.

3. You do not have to work N4KNF again if you work DL1TJO to count
as an additional team.

4. Do not have to reside in the same QTH.

5. All persons participating as partners or teams must let the
chairpersons know who their team-mates are PRIOR to the start of
the QSO Party.

6. When only one log is submitted in the event of a previous
request of team/partner status, credit will be given for
"single" category only.
