A 3-Way Club Competition Between NCCC, PVRC and SMC   Reference: http://ncjweb.com/naqp/   A. Dates Includes all 6 NAQPs in 2019 Winter CW: 1800 UTC January 12 to 0600 UTC January 13 SSB: 1800 UTC January 19 to 0600 UTC January 20 RTTY: 1800 UTC February 23 to 0600 UTC February 24 Summer RTTY: 1800 UTC July 20 to 0600 UTC July 21 CW: 1800 UTC August 3 to 0600 UTC August 4 SSB: 1800 UTC August 17 to 0600 UTC August 18   B. Scoring An NAQPC Score is calculated for each club for each NAQP event as: Sum of the club’s NAQP log scores (per NCJ) * Number of Club Participants:   Single Operators: A club member with at least one QSO in the contest as a single operator will count as one Club Participant and his/her NAQP log score will be credited towards his/her club.  Club members who submit additional single operator logs using different callsigns will receive credit for any additional NAQP log scores but will not count as additional Club Participants.   Multi-Two: NAQP log score and Club Participant count for each operator is calculated on a percentage basis.  Example: if an M2 entry has an NAQP log score of 200,000 and 3 out of 4 of the operators in that M2 are club members, then the NAQP log score contribution to the club is 75% of 200,000 or 150,000, and an NAQP log score of 50,000 is assigned to each of the three club members.  A M2 operation will only generate a single Club Participant counter and, in the example above, the Club Participant count of 1 will also be split between the three club members (0.33 participants per club member).  M2 members who also submit a log as a single operator will receive credit for their second NAQP log score and an additional, fractional Club Participant count sufficient to increase their total Club Participant counter for that NAQP event to 1.    Those submitting multiple logs should keep in mind the NAQP rule that states, “Operators must use only one call sign per station operated.”    In no case will any operator contribute a Club Participant count greater than 1 for a given NAQP event.   Any station whose NAQP log is counted as a check-log will be counted in his/her club’s Participant total, but will contribute an NAQP log score of 0.   NAQPC Points: For each NAQP contest, the club with the highest NAQPC Score is assigned 100 NAQPC Points, the second place club is assigned 75 points, and the third place club is assigned 65 points.  Add the NAQPC Points together for each club for the six contests; the club with the highest NAQPC Point total will be the 2018 NAQPC winner.  In the event of a tie, the club with the highest NAQPC Score totaled for all six contests will be the winner.   NAQPC scoring will be calculated using a spreadsheet or database shared between club leadership. NAQP log scores used will be either "Preliminary Scores" on ncjweb.com, forwarded file of scores from NCJ administration, or published scores in the NCJ results article, whichever is obtained soonest and is in a suitable file format.   C. Eligibility Any club member in good standing is eligible to contribute a log for his/her club.  Each club will periodically furnish a club roster to the NAQPC Coordinator and update that roster as necessary to establish eligibility.  A club member must be listed on the club roster prior to a given NAQP contest for that individual’s log to be included in the NAQPC calculations for that event.  NAQPC Scores are not calculated retroactively; a club member added to a club roster mid-year will not have logs for prior NAQPs added to the club’s NAQPC Scores, but can contribute a log for future NAQPs.   There is no club circle rule like ARRL or CQ contests.  Any club member in good standing located anywhere in the world can contribute their score to their club, as long as they appear on their club's roster.  If an individual is a member of more than one of the clubs in the NAQP Challenge, that individual’s log will be counted toward only one of the clubs.  Absent specific instructions from that club member, the NAQPC Coordinator will assign that club member to a that club he/she most associates with currently, and/or to which he/she resides closest.   Participants must submit a log to the NCJ and that log must be listed in the NAQP results in order to be eligible to contribute that log towards to his/her club.   D. Awards The winning club gets possession of the traveling NAQP Challenge Cup.   E. Miscellaneous This club competition does not interfere with or replace the normal NCJ 5-person NAQP teams. It runs in parallel with those teams, and all participants may continue to submit their own 5-person teams on the NCJ web site independent of this club challenge.
