(non-Members substitute power level for NAQCC Nr., e.g. 5W, 1W, etc. Be
sure to add the W.)
QSO with a Member, 2 points.
QSO with a Non-member, 1 point.
Each USA state
Each VE province
Each country except W/VE
All multipliers count only once in the contest.
If you use only a straight key for the entire sprint, multiply your
score by 2.
If you use only a bug for the entire sprint, multiply your score by 1.5.
If you key with anything other than a straight key or bug, there is no
SWA - simple wire antennas - for those using a simple wire antenna per
GAIN - gain antennas - for those using other than a simple wire antenna.
The purpose of having a special award is to perhaps award a certificate
to someone who knows they can't win one of the regular 1st/2nd/TNW
certificates, but would still like one of our beautiful NAQCC
certificates to display in the shack. Our special award this month goes
to the one with the highest score using 4 watts or less power. If the
highest scorer wins a 1st or 2nd place certificate, then the SA goes to
the next highest scorer.
Continuing this month we are giving away a set of CD's to one
participant according to the following rules:
1. The participant meeting the requirements below and posting the
highest score will be the winner of a set of CD's in the following
months: July, August, September, October, November, January, February,
March, April, and May.
A. Requirements: The participant must be a NAQCC member and can not have
won a CD set previously. Previous winners are:
K4BAI (Jul 07)
K1EV (Aug 07)
B. If the highest scorer does not meet the requirements, then the CD set
winner will be the next highest scorer who does meet the requirements.
REMEMBER: You HAVE to be a NAQCC member to be eligible to win the CDs;
and there's still plenty of time to join before Tuesday night's sprint.
