North American QSO Party – CW @
Aug 3 @ 13:00 – Aug 4 @ 01:00

The North American QSO Parties are favorites of beginners and seasoned operators alike. The NAQPs are low-power only (no amplifiers allowed) which makes for a lot more breathing room on the bands. Small stations can generate very effective �runs� in the NAQP contests. Multipliers count once per-band, which makes for an exciting format, as multipliers can be �moved� from band to band. The NAQPs allow stations from all parts of North America to be in the running for the top spots. The 12-hour format allows participants to do some great contesting, yet still have time for other activities during the weekend. Participants can enter in the single op or multi-op categories and also have the opportunity to combine up to five separate single op scores into a team score.January/February 2019 EventsCW: 1800 UTC January 12 to 0600 UTC January 13,2019 (second full weekend in January)SSB: 1800 UTC January 19 to 0600 UTC January 20,2019 (third full weekend in January)RTTY: 1800 UTC February 23 to 0600 UTC February24, 2019 (starts on last Saturday in February)July/August 2019 EventsRTTY: 1800 UTC July 20 to 0600 UTC July 21, 2019(third full weekend in July)CW: 1800 UTC August 3 to 0600 UTC August 4, 2019(first full weekend in August)SSB: 1800 UTC August 17 to 0600 UTC August 18,2019 (third full weekend in August) CW: Chris Hurlbut, KL9A, cwnaqpmgr@ncjweb.comSSB: Bill Lippert, AC�W, ssbnaqpmgr@ncjweb.comRTTY: Mark Aaker, K6UFO, rttynaqpmgr@ncjweb.com
