The purpose of the Indiana QSO Party (INQP) is to encourage contact with Indiana amateur radio stations by other Indiana hams and hams worldwide. Stations outside of Indiana work Indiana stations only. Indiana stations work everybody, including other Indiana stations.
The INQP is a great time to work on your Worked All Indiana Award. It only takes 60 confirmed counties to earn the initial certificate.
Tilt-N-Raise and Indiana QSO Party
The use of the Tilt-N-Raise antenna mount in the Indiana QSO Party event is a great idea. You can use the Tilt-N-Raise to get your antenna up in short order and then you can concentrate on getting the rest of your gear operational. Think of the extra Indiana counties you and your group (if you are in one) can have in the logs. The antenna is a major part of an amateur radio station operating in Indiana QSO Party and the last thing you need to worry about is whether the antenna will stay upright during the Indiana QSO Party. If you have yet to buy a Tilt-N-Raise then just use our link to order a Tilt-N-Raise for yourself, then you can rest easy while working the Indiana QSO Party or any other radio event.
