New England QSO Party 4.3.6 Now Available & Support for Solar Eclipse QSO Party in VHF Software!

Home News

Hi All,

Just a quick note to let you know that....

In Region and Out of Region versions of the New England QSO Party Contest Software (4.3.6) are Now Available!

We've updated the in region and out of region versions of the New England QSO Party software (4.3.6) for the new abbreviations and rule changes. It is very important that you upgrade to the latest. The previous versions will still automatically retrieve the new abbreviation list on start, they will be able to log QSOs and appear at first glance to work fine, but because of the new, flipped state / county format, the previous versions will not work properly for anyone that does not upgrade.

As always, upgrades and new programs are free to registered users. If you are currently running a version of our software released after January 2021 and are Internet connected, each program should detect the new upgrade and offer to retrieve it for you on start. If you have any problem with the automatic upgrade, or you are running an older version, you can install the latest versions directly from the web site.

VHF Contest Log 6.6.8 With Solar Eclipse QSO Party Support is Now Available!

We mentioned that we've updated our VHF Contest Log (6.6.8) to also include support for the Solar Eclipse QSO Party in our January announcement, but it wasn't part of the title and a lot of folks missed it. While the SEQP includes HF, the existing grid exchange in the VHF software was the best fit for SEQP's inclusion. Just click Settings > Setup and select Solar Eclipse QSO Party in our VHF Contest Log to operate the SEQP.

And in response to the questions we always receive when we neglect to include the following in our e-mail announcements...

Package Upgrade Information...

If you have registered one or more individual programs and would like to upgrade to N3FJP's Software Package or N3FJP's Software Package and CD for full use of all our Amateur Radio software, we would be glad to apply the amount that you have registered so far as a credit towards that purchase. Please send us an e-mail directly and we'll let you know your balance.

You'll find all the details on the Register Now page at

Donations are Gratefully Accepted!

And in response to the often asked question for which Kimberly, Chris and I are very grateful...

"I know your upgrades are free, but I also realize how much time and effort support, coding these enhancements and new programs take and that your pricing policy doesn't fully reflect that. Can I send you something to show my appreciation for your continued efforts?"

Yes, thanks so much, your continued support in any amount is very welcome and deeply appreciated! You can use this page:

or send your contribution by mail, payable to Affirmatech Inc., to:
