The 7QP multiplier files for CT were updated on 30 April 2006 to 
correct some mistakes in Arizona and Washington.  Please do NOT use 
the files dated 29 April 2006.

Here is yesterday's release notice again:

CT can be used to log the 7-Land QSO Party using the NEQP (New England
QSO Party) contest.  The multiplier files can be found at:


The web site for the 7-Land QSO party is:


(the following text is from the 7QP.TXT "readme" file inside the .ZIP archive):

There are two multiplier files in the archive:

     7QP.DAT     - multiplier file for outside 7-land
     7QPSTAT.DAT - multiplier file for inside 7-land

These files must be copied in place of the NEQP files that come with

     copy 7QP.dat NEQP.dat
     copy 7QPSTAT.dat NEQPSTAT.dat

The easiest way is to create an empty directory for logging the
contest, then copy the two files as shown above into this empty
directory.  This will prevent you from over-writing the real NEQP

When setting up the contest in CT, pick the correct contest name:

   * If you are operating inside 7-Land, select "NEQP (W1)"
   * If you are operating outside 7-Land, select "NEQP (non-W1)"

If you are logging inside 7-Land, CT will only accept a 4-character
abbreviation.  That's OK because it only counts the first two letters
of the abbreviation (the state) towards your multiplier total.  Those
outside of 7-Land can log the full 5-character county abbreviation.

Please send me any comments or corrections.
