[NA-User] PAQSO Party VE changes

New .CRT files are not necessary for this change.  In the PA QSO Party, 
NA get's its multiplier info from multiplier (.mlt) files, which are 
simple ASCII text files which can be easily edited with a text editor 
like Windows Notepad.

PAQP participants outside of PA using NA get their multiplier info from 
the file PACTY.MLT, which as the filename suggests contains PA county 
info.  This file does not need to be changed as it contains only PA 
counties and so it is not affected by the recent rule change.

PAQP participants inside PA using NA get their multiplier info from the 
file PAQSO.MLT.  This file contains PA county information, plus section 
and VE province information.  I'll update this file to the new rules and 
get it posted on the Datom Engineering web site 
(http:www.datomonline.com) in a day or two. I'll post an announcement 
here on the reflector so people will know the updated file is available.

Thanks for the reminder.

73, Dave Pruett, K8CC

>> Good day, all,
>> Starting this year, the PAQSO Party will be changing the multipliers for the VE Sections. While there is truly no standard listing, it does not seem fair to not use the 4 new Ontario sections as multipliers. In the search for a standardized listing, and with none found, we have decided to go with the Canadian multiplier list that the ARRL uses for most of it’s contests. Which are:
>> MAR -VE1 and VY2
>> NL -V01 and VO2
>> QC -VE2
>> ONN -VE3
>> ONS	 -VE3
>> ONE -VE3
>> GTA	 -VE3
>> MB -VE4
>> SK -VE5
>> AB -VE6
>> BC -VE7
>> NT -VE8, VY1, and VY0
>> N1MM N3FJP and Writelog have been advised, and if anyone has software they use, and would like me to advise the writers of the changes, let me know.
