Louisiana Qso Party – 2018

     To LaQP 2017 participants - I owe you an apology. I have had several "life events" in the past 12-18 months and getting the certificates out somehow kept getting shuffled to the back of the "to do" list. For this I am sorry. The color certificates were all printed and mailed. The winner's list has been posted - please see the link below.

     With no further ado, the members of the Louisiana Contest Club invite you to take part in the Louisiana Qso Party (LaQP) for 2018, which will be held on March 17. The event will run from 9AM Local to 9PM local. Complete rules are available in html or pdf at the links below.

     We are encouraging more LA stations to participate, and have contacted several rovers who plan to activate many Parishes (counties), including some of the more rare ones. Be sure to look for N5LCC, the bonus station, which will be running CW, SSB and RTTY, handing out as many contacts and bonus points as possible.

     Please remember, "Logs containing 26 contacts or more are required to submit electronically." Section 10 in the rules (below) give easy to follow instructions on submitting your log. The rules also list a number of categories in which certificates can be won.

     We have had a suggestion to consider separating "Digital" and "CW" into separate categories with certificates for each. While we don't want to make rules changes this close to the event for this year, we welcome your comments on whether we should consider this change for next year. Please send comments to: questions@laqp.org

     On behalf of the LaQP contest committee, we hope you will join us as we continue to grow the event.

Bobby, WM5H and Mark, K5ER
