The North American QSO Party CW Contest is this weekend: 1800Z, Aug 7 to 
0600Z, Aug 8

Some reminders and updated info regarding this contest:

Maximum power: 100 watts output (there is no high power category in the NAQPs)

Team Registration: All teams must be registered prior to the start of the 
contest using the form available at: http://www.ncjweb.com/cwnaqpteamreg.php

Log Due Date: August 21, 2004 (14 days after the contest)

Log Submission:
Preferred Method: Use the web form available at: 
This form is designed to upload your Cabrillo log directly to the log 
checking database. The primary reason to use this form instead of e-mail is 
that it eliminates e-mail delivery problems and provides you with immediate 
confirmation of receipt, or a list of Cabrillo formatting problems with 
your log.

Other methods:
E-mail to: cwnaqp at ncjweb.com
Use Web-to-Cabrillo form available at: 

Logging Problems:
The most common Cabrillo formatting problem is with the inclusion of the 
name used in the sent exchange. If the QSO lines in your log look something 

QSO: 14000 CW 2004-08-07 1800 WA7BNM Bruce A Horn CA N4PN       PAUL Ga

you haven't properly configured your contest logging program. The QSO lines 
should look something like:

QSO: 14000 CW 2004-08-07 1800 WA7BNM BRUCE CA  N4PN       PAUL Ga

Also, please pay attention to the CATEGORY: line in your log. It states the 
power level used during the contest. If it contains HIGH instead of LOW or 
QRP, we will assume you used more than 100W during the contest and will use 
your log as a check log.

Proper Cabrillo formatting for the NAQPs is described at:
