SINGLE-OP - Off-times must be a minimum of 15 minutes. Use of spotting nets (operator arrangements involving assistance
through DX-alerting nets, Packet Cluster, CW Skimmer, self spotting, etc) is not permitted. SO2R operation is perfectly
acceptable.
SINGLE-OP-ASSISTED - Off-times must be a minimum of 15 minutes. It is okay to use spotting networks, packet cluster,
CW skimmer, RBN and other similar alerting arrangements, but self-spotting is not allowed. SO2R operation is perfectly
acceptable.
MULTI-ONE - The single transmitting operator cannot be replaced before 10 minutes after their first transmission. There is no
time limit on band or mode changes. Other operators can listen, spot, or perform any other station function except transmitting.
MULTI-MULTI - There is no time limit on band or mode changes.
SPECIAL CATEGORIES:
EXPEDITION - California County Expedition (CCE) - A County Expedition is an operation from a temporary location using temporary
antennas -- and operation positions installed no more than one (1) week prior to the contest period -- using temporary antenna
supports (natural supports like trees permitted). CCE stations send only ONE county per exchange, including those on a county
line.
MOBILE - "Mobile" means operating in or on a movable vehicle, independent of all commercial power sources, and able to travel
at any time without having to disconnect any wiring or change any antennas in order to move to another location.  
Note: California stations that change counties are considered to be a new station and may be contacted again for point and
multiplier credit. The Mobile station which makes the most total QSOs during CQP wins the Mobile plaque.
SCHOOL-CLUB - School entries must use the appropriate school call sign and operate from the campus station if one exists. Any
school club members may operate including students, faculty, staff, and/or alumni.
SPECIAL OVERLAY CATEGORIES:
YL Operator:
Only YLs entering in single operator categories are eligible for the YL Operator award; those working as part of Multi Op teams
are not eligible.
Youth Operator:
A Youth Operator is an operator who is younger than 18 years old in his/her local time zone on the last day of the contest.
Only Youth Operators entering in single operator categories are eligible for the Youth Operator award; those working as part
of Multi Op teams are not eligible.
New Contester:
- Open to any station in California who submits a log for CQP with at least 100 Q's;
- Must attest that they have never submitted a log with 100 Q's or more in any contest;
- Station antennas limited to a single tri-bander and wire antennas or verticals and wire antennas;
- Only Single-Operators are eligible for the New Contester Award, not a member of a Multi operation team.
CLUB COMPETITION RULES: Club Competition is encouraged. Club members can submit their logs for the club competition by entering the club name in the Cabrillo file "club" field. CQP is not an ARRL sanctioned contest so some CQP rules are different from the ARRL rules for club competition. Many of these rules are meant to encourage county expeditions and mobile operations to insure that all California counties are well represented in CQP. Please read these rules carefully before entering your Club in CQP Club Competition for 2015. 1) US and Canadian clubs must be affiliated either with the ARRL or the RAC. Other countries should abide by their own amateur radio club rules; 2) These large, regional California clubs are not eligible for CQP club competition: NCCC, SCCC, NCDXC, SCDXC; 3) Clubs without a geographical basis and which do not hold in-person meetings are excluded. Such clubs include FOC, CWOPS QCWA, FISTS, SKCC, etc. If you have any question about your club's eligibility, please contact us at: info@cqp.org; 4) The definition of the "club circle" for all participating clubs regardless of size is 175 miles (280 km) in diameter -- the same as the ARRL circle for large clubs--with the following exceptions: - County expeditions to sites outside the club circle may still contribute points to a club total; - A club member who resides outside of the club circle but who travels to a station within the circle or who operates from a county expedition may contribute points to the club total; - Mobile operations that travel outside of the club circle can contribute points to the club total. 5) Points earned from multioperator county expeditions may be awarded Proportionately to a clubТs total. Example 1: if a multioperator county expedition has 10 members and one of those members belongs to Club X, club X may receive 1/10 of the points earned by that expedition. Example 2: If a mobile operation has two members and one of those members belongs to Club X, then Club X may receive 50% of the points earned by that operation. It is the responsibility of participants to inform contest officials of any proportional contribution. 6) Clubs should be selected on the CQP Log Submission Page. Claims for proportional points must be made in the "SOAPBOX" field. 7) Points earned operating from a fixed (i.e., non-expedition, non-Mobile) outside the club circle cannot be claimed for club competition. 8) Entrants must be members in good standing of their respective clubs prior to the start of CQP competition.
Stations outside of California work as many California stations in as many CA Counties as possible. 
Stations in California work everyone.
All CW contacts must be made outside the Phone sub-bands except for 160 meters.
Stations may be worked once on CW and once on Phone per band.
Exchanges:
California stations: QSO number + 4-letter county abbreviation. 
Stations outside of California: QSO number + 2-letter State, Canadian area abbreviation, or "DX".
Points for QSO:
2 points per Phone QSO;
3 points per CW QSO.  
Multipliers:
California Stations:
Count U.S. states (50) and Canadian Provinces (8): MR, QC, ON, MB, SK, AB, BC and NT where:
MR - Maritime provinces plus Newfoundland and Labrador (NB, NL, NS, PE);
NT Ц Northern Territories (NT, NU, YT).
Maximum of 58 Multipliers
Note: Although the "CA" abbreviation is not used as a multiplier in this contest, the first valid CA county logged will
count as the multiplier for California. California stations must log all CA contacts with their 4-character county abbreviation;
everything else as two characters, including "DX" for all stations outside of the U.S. and Canada.
Non-California Stations:
Count all 58 California Counties for a maximum of 58 multipliers.
Score:
The finals score is the total number of QSO Points multiplied by the total number of multipliers (58 maximum).
QSO Points = (CW Qs x 3 pts) + (Phone Qs x 2 pts)
Final Score = QSO Points  x # Multipliers
