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 
web site.

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.

Other reminders:

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 
and multi-two. If you use Packet and/or have more than one operator, your 
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.

Cabrillo logs. Please confirm that your class and power are shown correctly 
in the header portion of you Cabrillo log submission. Some contest logging 
software defaults to HIGH power. Logs indicating HIGH power will be used as 

Complete rules are available at: http://www.ncjweb.com/naqprules.php

Finally, please be courteous to participants in other contests and to other 
non-contesters that are using the bands during the NAQPs.

Have fun!
