Dear Contest Club Official:

Club Competition in the California QSO Party has been supported for many years, but traditionally only a handful of larger clubs in California tend to compete each year.   To encourage more small-medium club participation for 2017, we’ve created three new competition categories:

  1. “Small” = the 10 highest scores from a club whose members who submitted their log in the Small category will count for this competition category.
  2. “Medium” = the 35 highest scores from a club whose members who submitted their log in the Medium category will count for this competition category.
  3. “Large” = clubs may combine the scores of any number of their members

All CA clubs are eligible to compete in CQP, except for NCCC, which sponsors the contest.

Plaques will be awarded for each of the 3 categories for both California and Non-California clubs:  a total of 6 awards.

Further details can be found on the CQP website:

Date-Time Reminder:  1600 UTC October 7, 2017 to 2200 UTC October 8, 2017

We hope to see many members of your club on the air this October in the 52nd running of the California QSO Party!

73, John, K6MM CQP Chair
