So I just got my homemade buddistick built and an listening to HF (20 meters) for the first time today with my new radio. So there seems to be some QSO parties happening. They are referring to county designation . . . I have been google'ing for a list or something to find what my county is. No luck yet . . anyone point me to something that would tell me?

Thanks, Wayne

They guy I heard was in N Dakota. He was referring to his county as "designation MTN". So I assumed that maybe most counties had a "designation". Thanks for the Link!

Since you're not in one of the QSO party states you don't need to give your county.  ND, SD, and NE are looking for RST and ST.  MI is looking for a serial number and state.

You can find links to all the QSO party rules at http://qsoparty.eqth.net/.  There is a state QSO party just about every weekend.  Sometimes more than one, like today.

The rules will include the county abbreviations.
