> Hi,
> As a reminder, the North American QSO Party CW and SSB contests are
> scheduled as follows:
> CW:  1800Z, Aug 6 to 0600Z, Aug 7
> SSB: 1800Z, Aug 20 to 0600Z, Aug 21
> Complete rules can be found at:
> http://www.ncjweb.com/naqprules.php
> Teams, consisting of up to 5 single operators, must be registered prior to
> the start of the contest using the web form available at:
> CW:  http://www.ncjweb.com/cwnaqpteamreg.php
> SSB: http://www.ncjweb.com/ssbnaqpteamreg.php
> The start-of-the-contest deadline for team registration will be strictly
> enforced. Team members are not limited to a single geographic area or club
> membership.
> The maximum power for all entry categories is 100W. Single op QRP entries
> are limited to 5W. Submitted logs that indicate "HIGH" power will be
> interpreted as representing the use of power greater than 100W and will be
> used as check logs.
> Please submit your logs for either mode using the web form available at:
> http://www.ncjweb.com/naqplogsubmit.php
> You will receive an immediate detailed response of any problems found with
> the formatting of your log or a log summary/acknowledgement if everything
> is OK. The deadline for log submission is 14 days after the contest (CW:
> August 20, SSB: September 3). You may submit corrected logs via the web
> form up until the submission deadline.
> Certificates will be distributed electronically in the form of full-color,
> print quality pdfs immediately upon completion of log checking. For those
> who are unable to receive or print the certificate, a certificate will be
> mailed.
> How to increase your score:
> 1) be aware of the maximum operating time (10 hours) and off time rules
> for
> single ops. Periods of inactivity must be of at least 30 minutes duration
> to count as off time. Periods of less than 30 minutes are considered as
> operating time.
> 2) for all QSOs with North American stations, you must log the call, name
> and QTH (state/province/country) of the station you work. The QTH may be
> omitted for QSOs with stations outside of North America. "59" or some
> other
> signal report will not be considered a name.
> 3) be sure to log the correct band for each QSO, particularly if you use
> multiple radios or change bands often during the contest.
> 4) during the SSB contest, be sure you log the correct name. Many names
> sound similar on HF SSB: Ken/Kim/Kent, Joe/Joel, Dick/Mick/Vick, etc.
> 5) be familiar with the standard 2-letter postal abbreviations for US
> states and Canadian provinces. Although you don't have to use these
> abbreviations when specifying the QTH for a QSO, the use of a wrong
> abbreviation may result in an unintended QTH (e.g. use of AK for Arkansas,
> when AK=Alaska).
> Have fun!
