The George S Ladd Radio Club (Golden Gate Chapter) invites all Telephone Pioneers, including former and current employees of the telephone related companies, and all other licensed amateur radio operators to participate in the 56th Annual Telephone Pioneer QSO Party.

We welcome contacts from non-pioneers as well!

The Telephone Pioneer QSO party combines Pioneering and Amateur Radio. It is a great chance to renew old friendships. Help us celebrate the Annual Telephone Pioneer QSO Party.

For the latest information and results go to:

If you are a chapter coordinator, please make every effort to contact all the Telephone Pioneer operators in your chapter.

Included with this letter are the rules, log sheets and a summary sheet. Please use the summary sheet!

The Telephone Pioneer QSO Party is scheduled for Monday October 19, 2020.

One complaint about weekend operating is the QRM with the various state QSO parties. The event will run eight hours with all modes running concurrently but scored separately.

There will be a special digital only session from 18:00 to 19:00 UTC. The increasing use of the digital modes, especially FT-8, will give all of us a chance to test its popularity.

Please give our announcement the widest possible distribution to all the known Amateur Radio Operators both pioneers and non-pioneers.. Thanks to all the previous coordinators who have made the TPQSO party a great success over the past 55 years.

For more information please call, email or write:
