SINGLE-OP:

stations;
- Shall keep a separate log for each transmitter;
- Each transmitter must have at least 10 minutes between band changes;
- May operate for the entire 12 hours of the contest.
Team Competition:
You may wish to form a team with fellow NAQP participants. If so, your team must consist of 2 to 5 single operator stations whose
individual scores are combined to produce a team score. Although clubs or other groups having more than 5 members may form
multiple teams, there is no distance or meeting requirements for a team entry.
Teams must be registered prior to the start of the contest. Use one of the following on-line forms to register your team:
CW Team Registration: Registration Form;
SSB Team Registration: Registration Form;
RTTY Team Registration: Registration Form.
These team registration forms automatically provide confirmation of team registration by returned e-mail.
All radio transmitters, receivers and antennas used by an entrant must be associated with one station, either at a fixed
geographical location or as a mobile/portable station. A station may be operated remotely. Use of multiple stations during the
contest, whether directly or remotely operated, is prohibited.
A valid contact between a North American station and any other station.
You may work a station once per band.
Exchanges:
North American: Operator name and station location (state, province or country);
non-North American: operator name only.
If the name sent is changed during the contest, as sometimes happens with multi-operator stations, the name used for each QSO must be clearly identified in the log.
Points for QSO:
1 point per QSO.
Multipliers:
U.S. states (including KH6 and KL7), 13 Canadian provinces/territories (British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba,
Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI, Newfoundland/Labrador, Yukon, NWT and Nunavut) and other North American
countries.
District of Columbia counts as Maryland.
Non-North American countries, maritime mobiles and aeronautical mobiles do not count as multipliers, but may be worked for QSO
credit.
Score:
Multiply total valid contacts by the sum of the number of multipliers worked on each band.
