Awards bring more enjoyment to contests. Participants earning first place in the NM QSO QSO Party’s operating or high score categories will receive a plaque that’s suitable for hanging proudly in their shack or club house. Winning multi-op teams will receive a single plaque to share amongst their team. If a plaque for a particular category does not have a sponsor by the time logs are scored, a color certificate will be awarded.
The New Mexico QSO Party welcomes individual hams and amateur radio clubs to sponsor a plaque for one or more of the available categories. If you would like to sponsor a plaque, a small contribution of $25 will cover its cost ($19 for the plaque, $6 for packing and shipping). Sponsors will be recognized on the New Mexico QSO Party website as well as directly on the plaque they sponsor (see picture below). Any remaining sponsorship funds once all plaques have been delivered will be donated to ARRL’s Spectrum Defense Fund in the name of “Friends of the New Mexico QSO Party”.
