Information and Rules for QRP Afield

QRP Afield is always the third Saturday in September.

Date:  21 September 2013

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Time: 11:00 AM EDT to 11:00 PM EDT (21 SEP 1500Z - 22 SEP 0300Z)

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Exchange:

NEQRP members: RST, state/province/country, NEQRP Number

Non members: RST, state/province/country, Power

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Bands and Modes: 160M, 80M, 40M, 20M, 15M, 10M. Any mode (CW, SSB, AM, PSK, etc.); all count the same. Only one contact per station per mode per band. Standard QRP frequencies are recommended within each band (or generally accepted frequencies for those modes for which there are no specific QRP frequencies). But, please, let's spread out a little -- not everyone within a kilohertz of 14.060.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Scoring: Power/Location Multiplier:

  • 1 point per contact if you are QRO (above 5 watts) and operating from a permanent location.
  • 2 points per contact if you are QRO and operating from a field or mobile location.
  • 5 points per contact if you are QRP (5 watts or less) and operating from a permanent location.
  • 10 points per contact if you are QRP and operating from a field or mobile location.

All contacts must be made from a single power/location category (i.e., the category is to remain the same once selected). Final score will be the total number of contacts multiplied by the power/location category multiplied by the SPC multiplier (see below).

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Multipliers: Each S/P/C worked counts for one multiplier point and can be counted only ONCE PER BAND.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Submission of Results: Email your scoresheet with a copy of the contest log and (please) any comments/photos concerning your setup, location, experiences, etc., no later than 20 October, to: K1CL@arrl.net or mail your entry to:

Multi-Club Stations: Will not be permitted. That is, simultaneous operation of multiple transmitters (on the same or different bands) under a single call sign is not permitted. However, multi-operators per club call is fine, with one transmitter in operation at a time.
