You can work us once per band/mode at each County stop. You can also see our Rover plan with the stops marked-off at: (see below)

Special QSL cards will be available, and there will be a special certificate for working K2AA/R in all Southern New Jersey counties!

Where we will be operating:

We are planning to be on two bands simultaneously – one station on 40 meters using a full-size ¼ wave 40 meter vertical antenna, and the other on 20 meters with a small tri-band yagi antenna. We may move, conditions depending, to other bands, but the NJ QSO Party rules only permit contacts on 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 Meters.

Look for us at or around (primarily 40 & 20):

Band Phone
40M 7.190
20M 14.250
15M 21.400
10M 28.400


     New Jersey stations send RS(T) and county
     US/Canada send RS(T) and state/province.
     DX stations send RS(T) and “DX”

Also, work the Burlington County Radio Club “Jersey Devil” station – K2TD – for a 100 point bonus! The complete rules and scoring information are available at:

Looking forward to seeing you all on the air for this years' QSO Party!
