I am pleased to present the Results of the 2017 QSO Party.

As you can see, 12 logs were received, a good representation of the number of
stations heard on air.

My sincere thanks to you all for your continued support and a special thanks to
David VK5PL. David is a recent member of  RAOTC and made a special effort
to join in for the first time.

I look forward to hearing you all next year.

All licensed Australian Amateur Radio Operators are invited to participate in the annual QSO PARTY sponsored by the Radio Amateurs' Old Timers' Club Inc. The event may be treated as a contest or simply enjoyed as a basic contact occasion.

As RAOTC members are amateurs with many years’ experience, most are likely to have older radios still in working order.  This QSO Party is a good opportunity to give them an airing; but you can, of course, also use your latest state-of-the-art rig.

Logs:
In order to acknowledge your participation, you are invited to send a log of your contacts
