Hello everyone

Rebecca VA7BEC here, contest coordinator for the British Columbia QSO Party. 

Hope 2015 has started out well for you. Also, hope the year brings good band 
openings when you need them and provides lots of contesting fun.

BCQP 2015 is just around the corner!

Key Details
Date/Time: 1600z Feb 7 to 0400z Feb 8.
Objective: BC stations can contact anyone anywhere. Stations outside BC must 
catch the attention of BC stations.
Exchange: Stations outside BC give RS(T) + state/province. BC stations will 
give RS(T) + three-letter code representing the federal electoral district in 

New in 2015
The plaque program has been expanded!! There are now EIGHT sponsored categories:
Top Score BC, Top Score Canada outside BC, Top YL Score, Top Score USA, Most 
Federal Electoral Districts Worked, Top Rookie, Top DX and Top Mixed Mode (new).

The reward for participating? Fun at the radio, of course. 
But we also have unique photo-based certificates for top scores by stations in 
BC and outside BC in all categories. Photos are different every year and taken 
especially for the event -- start a collection!

Rules and tools, including multiplier list and an at-a-glance summary of 
same-day events and their respective exchanges, and examples of the lovely 
photo-based certificates and plaques are available for viewing from links on 
the BCQP page of the Orca DXCC website. Go to http://www.orcadxcc.org/bcqp.html

There's lots of activity the Feb 7-8 weekend, which means plenty of Q potential 
on phone, CW and digital. From a British Columbia perspective, participation 
from everyone everywhere is absolutely welcome. Even if BCQP is not your target 
contest of the weekend, if you hear a BC station calling CQ BCQP, please drop 
by. If one of the other QSO parties is your focus and you are in the host 
state, BC stations will be able to trade a Q with you. Participants in the 
10-10 contest or even XE RTTY can also benefit from a trade. It’s a win-win 
situation for all events on the air.

GL es 73,

Rebecca VA7BEC
