Nebraska Hams Celebrate Nebraska’s 150th Anniversary!

Nebraska’s Hams will help the State celebrate throughout 2017.  Although commemorative contacts are encouraged from January 1 through December 31, the premier event is a nine day Sesquicentennial Anniversary Celebration Week QSO Party centered on the anniversary, March 1 (rules and information).  We will be connecting with hams throughout the world and making available a special QSL card to document QSOs (more information).

Throughout the entire year, Nebraska Hams are encouraged to use “/NE150” as a suffix to their calls, “KA0BOJ/NE150”, to recognize our celebration.  Also, Nebraska Hams are encouraged to activate historical or important Nebraska locations (such as Chimney Rock or the State Capitol) or to celebrate a theme (such as a Nebraska author) throughout the year (as well as during the QSO Party).  If you or your club are activating a site or a theme, please let us know and we’ll post it on this website.

To contact us, let us know about events, etc., please fill out the event/activity calendar submission form or email

Please check back to this website and our Facebook Group (@NE150Hams) for information on special Sesquicentennial Celebration QSL cards and on special site-related events.  We’ll get information posted as soon as we can.

This is an official Nebraska Sesquicentennial event sanctioned by the Nebraska Sesquicentennial Commission.
