As most of you know, the NAQP CW contest will be held this weekend (August 
2-3). Please be aware of the following:

1) Output power is limited to 100 watts. We will also recognize QRP 
entries. High power entries or entries that use assistance, such as Packet, 
will be classified as check logs.

2) Teams must be preregistered before the start of the contest (i.e. 1800Z, 
Aug 2). Please use the team registration web form available on the NCJ web 
site, rather than directly e-mailing me. This will insure that you receive 
confirmation of your registration and that your registration won't get 
lost. The registration form can be found at:

3) After the contest please e-mail your log to cwnaqp at ncjweb.com. Do not 
use any other e-mail address. Although we currently accept a variety log 
formats (as long as they are ASCII text), we prefer Cabrillo-formatted logs 
because it greatly speeds up the process of handling your log. Even if you 
submit a Cabrillo log, please look at it before submitting it to insure 
that it contains the required information. Common errors are logs that 
include a signal report in the exchange info (a signal report is not part 
of the NAQP exchange), or logs that include the contestant's full name 
(e.g. Bruce A. Horn) in the exchange instead of the name exchanged (e.g. 
Bruce). Also, please make sure that times in your log are in UTC.

4) If you logged on paper, please use the web form available at:
to convert your log to a Cabrillo log. If you are unable to do this and 
must submit a paper log, send it to:
Bruce Horn, WA7BNM
4225 Farmdale Avenue
Studio City, CA 91604

5) The deadline for all logs is September 1, 2003. In order to shorten the 
turn around time for log checking, we will be more "hard nosed" about late 
logs than we have been in the past.

6) The rules for the NAQP contests can be found at: 

7) After the contest, a list of logs received will be available at:

Since not all NAQP participants subscribe to this reflector, contest clubs 
should make sure their members are aware of these reminders.

I hope everyone has a great time!

The January 2003 NAQP CW results will be posted to the NCJ web site shortly 
and will appear in the Nov/Dec 2003 issue of the NCJ.
