Please be aware of a change in the preferred method of submitting logs for
the upcoming NAQP contests: all logs should be uploaded in Cabrillo format
using the web form available at:
http://www.ncjweb.com/naqplogsubmit.php (form will be available at the
start of the contest)
The same form should be used for all NAQP contests, regardless of mode. Use
of the form will insure that you automatically receive immediate
confirmation of your log and update the list of logs received on the NCJ
If you log on paper or use software that does not produce a
Cabrillo-formatted log, please use the appropriate Web-to-Cabrillo
converter available at:
If for some reason, neither of these options work for you, you can still
use the usual e-mail addresses, but handling and acknowledgement of your
log submission will be delayed.
Team registration. All teams (max of 5-persons) must be registered prior to
the start of the contest using the on-line forms available on the NCJ web site.
Classes of entry. There are only two entry classes for the NAQPs: single-op

class is multi-two.
Power: The maximum output power that can be used by any class entrant is
100W. QRP (5W) single-op entrants will also be recognized.
Op hours: Single-op entrants may operate for a maximum of 10 of the 12
hours of the contest period, with off-times of at least 30 minutes.
Multi-two entrants may operate for the entire 12 hours.
Log submission deadline: 14 days after the contest.
