  • GA looks for States (51),

  • Provinces (13),

  • And DX.

    • DX are not mults, but count as QSO Points

  • Everyone else looks for GA Counties (159)

  • Rovers are “new” as they change counties

  • Mults are per mode, but not per band.

  • Points – PH=1 CW=2

  • See gqp.contesting .com for full rules and a list of counties and provinces

  • Operating Hints

  • You send and Log:

  • “W4AW 599 BIBB”  (or the actual county you are in)

  • GA Stations- Do not send GA in the exchange, always send a county.

  • You do not have to add any /M,  /COBB, or other suffix to the call.

  • You Receive and Log:

  • “W0BH 599 KS”  -when working an out of state station

  • The location should be one of the 51 State or 13 Province abbreviations.

  • -ARRL sections should not be used.

  • We do sort out "VE3" as "ON" and some other variations for Canada.

  • MD is separate from DC.

  • When working a DX station, log "DX" as the location, not the country prefix.

  • “PA3ARM 599 DX” -as an example of what you would log.

  • We do also check for slips here and try to fix them if we can.

  • When working another GA station, Log the County abbreviation, not "GA"

  • NE4S 599 COBB - for example

  • If the station does not send the County, you can log "GA" as a last resort.

  • You will get credit for GA as a state multiplier worked when you log a GA county.

  • GA counties are not multipliers for GA stations, but do count for QSO points.

  • This last item gives rise to the oddity that "GA" should not be in any of the logged Qs for GQP. But GA should be used for Location in the header.

  • Out of state stations and DX should sent their locations as in the examples above.

  • The list of Abbreviations and Multipliers is at http://gqp.contesting.com/Rules.htm

  • along with the full rules.

  • Log all the dupes, it is faster and is sorted out in score processing.

  • Do your best, the score process is very forgiving.

Use the standard 2 letter postal abbreviations for the states.

Alberta [AB] for (VE6, VA6)

British Columbia [BC] for  (VE7, VA7)

Manitoba [MB] for  (VE4, VA4)

New Brunswick [NB] for (VE9) 

Newfoundland/Labrador [NL] for (VO1, VO2)

Northwest Territories [NT] for  (VE8)

Nova Scotia [NS]  for (VE1, VA1, CY9, CY)

Nunavut [NU] for  (VY0)

Ontario [ON] for  (VE3, VA3)

Prince Edward Island [PE] for  (VY2)

Quebec [QC] for  (VE2, VA2)

Rovers…. They make it fun!

  • Rovers may use a driver and be Single OP

    • Rover must do all operating and logging

    • Safety first, some laws may apply here

  • Rovers are not classed by power

    • Run as much as you can

    • All are grouped together for awards

  • A rover may also submit a separate home log

    • Home county is not in the Rover Run Log.

    • Saturday day on the road, Sunday at home

      Fixed stations are grouped QRP/LP/HP

    • 5W/150W/1500W

  • Fixed Stations may split to CW and PH

    • But not enter as Mixed also, Qs are to be used once

Now That’s a Rover!!

3 el A3 with 40M kit

30 foot Pneumatic mast

Ft1000mp, 500w TenTec

(I wish I had it back!! NE4S)

  • Rare Counties

  • It seems that the one we miss is the "rare" one. 

    • It is hard to say what misfortune befalls the rovers or why no fixed station got on the air from some counties.

  • At http://gqp.contesting.com/RareCounties.htm is a historical record of counties we have missed in recent years.

  • A good route would be one that visits a few of those counties that had 0Q's or have a low ham population as part of a trip you would find enjoy.

  • We try to coordinate activity of Rovers and Fixed operation. Please let us know of your plans at [email protected] as soon as you can.

  • Fixed and Rover can also post listings at [email protected]

  • Middle and Southern counties “tend” to be missed.

  • Burke was only 2010 miss

  • Terrell and Twiggs were the only ones missed in 2009! Echols, Atkinson, Wilcox, Seminole, Berrien, McDuffie, Glascock, Hancock, Lincoln, Charlton, Jasper, Jenkins, Screven, Burke, Brantley, Elbert, Hart, Franklin, Jones, Putnam, Dade, Baldwin, Pickens, Liberty, Stephens, Richmond, and Columbia have been missed in prior years.

  • Put some rovers on the road

  • Get your club and county members active

Top Pic: Tad, WF4W, and his portable station in rare Seminole Co.

GQP

  • Remember to use your “Official” club name when entering your club.

    • Everyone spell it the same way, avoid abbreviations.

    • Use ARRL registered Club name if you have registered

    • Send a note to [email protected] to get yourplan posted on the web site.

  • Help is available for log problems (Late, Missing, Didn’t do a log, ???)

    • Contact NE4S [email protected] ASAP after the Party Dates.


Slide10 l.jpg
GQP

  • If your club was not entered in last GQP---

  • Perhaps scores went to other area clubs

    • SECC – SEDXC – Local – County

    • SECC and SEDXC are NOT eligible for club awards

  • In March or early April have a GQP presentation at your club meeting.

  • Use this PowerPoint, or invite one of the GQP Team to your meeting.
