Louisiana Qso Party – 2017

     The Louisiana Contest Club is pleased to announce that all certificates for the 2016 were actually mailed somewhat earlier than the previous year, but sadly, the web site was not updated as often. We have been through some growing pains, but believe we have everything up to date and we are on track for smooth running of the event from this point on.

     With no further ado, we invite you to take part in the Louisiana Qso Party (LaQP) for 2017, which will be held on March 18. 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 want to recognize K5CM and the Oklahoma guys for continuing to work with us, in order to not conflict with local hamfests and to allow the rovers an easier time to participate in both events. 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
