County Data
County Map

This page provides information you can use to plan your strategy in ways that will maximize the number of counties that are activated during the QSO Party. We hope you find this data useful for your planning purposes, but if you'd like something more, please let us know - we are open for suggestions on how to make it better.

These county activity tables show activity for each of the last twelve years: 2013 - 2024. The Total Q's column is probably the best indication of activity in each county and the tables are sorted on that column. Note that, except for the last column, all data is based on the sent exchange information in the logs received. The Rcvd Q's column is the number of times that county was received by stations that submitted logs. If you want to download the table data, here it is in Excel format.

In 2022 there were four counties that had no contacts (as in zero) by a fixed station since 2013. Three of these counties saw fixed station activity in 2023 - Taylor, Menominee and Jackson. Shawano was the remaining unactivated county, but that changed in 2024 with activation by two portable stations. Thanks to the stations that did these activations!

If you need a detailed map of a Wisconsin county, check out the Wisconsin DOT website.

Once again, thanks to everyone for doing such a great job of covering our counties, both fixed and mobile. WIQP would not be the same without you. Please keep up the good work - it is greatly appreciated!

And if you're not already a member, please join our Mailing List (email reflector) to catch announcements and some banter on what others have in mind in the weeks before WIQP.
