Kansas QSO Party this year, 2013, was held onAugust 24th & 25th. I operated as KØN.  From the early tabulations on 3830, it can be considered a huge success.

Thanks to all who provided a QSO to me and to all who were patient with me pulling calls through the QRM. Every QSO is appreciated. The object of the 1X1 callsigns was to provide operators outside of Kansas the opportunity to collect callsign suffixes to spell KANSAS or SUNFLOWER or QSO PARTY and earn a special certificate. Further, all 105 counties were activiated by the various mobile stations with many of the mobile stations using 1X1 callsigns.

Although I had more total QSO's this year, my score was less than last year due to the small number of CW QSO's and due to only 58 multipliers. In all, I had 1172 QSO's and 58 multipliers for a score (including 100 bonus points) of 148,348. Band conditions were not too good but 20 meters turned out to be the workhorse for me. Hats off to N8II who gave me CW and SSB QSO's on 80, 40, 20, 15, and 10 meters.

I hope everyone had as much fun and excitement as I did. This has become one of the more popular QSO parties not only for us in North America, but also for several in Europe and Asia. See you next year!

See http://ksqsoparty.org for the results later this year.

Originally licensed as KNØVXU in 1959 in Independence, MO, I have held KØVXU for over 54 years. As a young man I thoroughly enjoyed contesting and DXing but, over the years, have tried my hand at several other areas of amateur radio including rag chewing, handling written traffic, 2 meter VHF repeater operation, beacon operation on 10 meters, antenna experimentation, rig building, packet radio, RTTY, PSK31, SSTV, and other digital modes

My operation is pretty much evenly divided between CW and SSB, 160 meters thorugh10 meters. I enjoy contesting and DXing and belong to the Kansas City Contest Club and the Kansas City DX Club. Since my retirement I have devoted my energies toward achieving DXCC Honor Roll status. Because I didn't pursue QSL cards until a couple of years ago, my totals are slowly inching upward. Also, the sluggish solar cycle 24 has not helped matters. Hopefully, this won't be my last solar cycle. See you on the HF bands!

I QSL via Direct, LoTW, and e-QSL. and bureau, but I prefer LoTW
