The following is the notes from January QRP ARCI Quarterly (QQ)
for the Sprint QRP ARCI CW QSO Party. If you are going to enter,
then send me email. I'll send you the forms you need at no charge.

Let's get this group out in full force and have the QRP Internet
Group take all top positions for this contest. The function here
is to generate activity and keep QRP alive. We really don't care
how we place, it's just for the fun. If we happen to place, then
some much the better for it. So, please, no contest flame wars.

gud luck in the test es cul, dit dit


    Spring QRP ARCI CW QSO Party

  Entry may be all-band, a single band, "HI-band" (20M, 15M,
10M, and 6M) or as a "LO-band" (160M, 80M, and 40M). All
entries will compete against other entries in their own class
of entry only. Certificates go to the top 10 scores and to the
top score in each single band, LO-band, and HI-band categories.

  Certificates for the top score in each class in each SPC
(state/province/country). The contest manager reserves the
right to recognize special significant entries with a certificate

  Entry includes a copy of the logs and a separate summary sheet.
Include duplicate check sheets with entries of 100 QSO's or more.
Indicate the total time-on-air, including time spent listening.
All entries must include a complete, legible, name, call, and
address. All entries must be received within 30 days following
the contest. Late entries will be counted as check logs. Members
indicate their QRP ARCI member number on all logs. Members and
non-members indicate their input or output power for each entry and
band. The highest power level used will determine the power multiplier.
Output power is considered as 1/2 of the input power. During the
QSO party, a maximum of 24 hours may be operated within the 36 hour
time period.

  Include a description of homebrew equipment, commercial equipment,
and antennas used with each entry. A summary sheet and sample log
sheets are available from the contest manager for an SASE with one
unit of postage. Include an SASE with one unit of postage in the
entry for a copy of the contest results. Results will be published
in the next available issue of the QRP ARCI Quarterly. The final
decision on all matters concerning the contests rests with the
contest manager.
