A 3-way club competition between NCCC, PVRC and SMC Reference: http://ncjweb.com/naqp/ A. Dates Includes all 6 NAQPs in 2017 Winter January 14: NAQP CW January 21: NAQP SSB February 25: NAQP RTTY Summer July 15: NAQP RTTY August 5: NAQP CW August 19: NAQP SSB B. Scoring A score is calculated for each club for each NAQP event as: Log Scores * Multipliers: (Sum of scores of all club logs) * (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 participant and receive credit for his/her score.  Club members who submit additional single operator logs using different callsigns will receive credit for the additional scores but will not count as additional participants. Multi-Two: Score and participant contribution is calculated on a percentage member basis.  Example: if a M2 entry scores 200,000 and 3 out of 4 of the operators in that M2 are club members, then the score contribution to the club is 75% of 200,000 or 150,000, and a score of 50,000 is assigned to each of the three club members.  A M2 operation can only generate a single participant counter and, in the example above, the 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 score and an additional, fractional participant counter sufficient to increase their total 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 participant count greater than 1 for a given NAQP event. Any participant who runs high power in NAQP as a check-log station will be counted in the club participant multiplier total, but will contribute a score of 0. NAQPC Points: For each contest, the club with the highest club 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 2017 NAQP club winner.  In the event of a tie, the club with the highest score total from all club logs for all six contests will be the winner. Score and NAQPC point tracking will be done using a spreadsheet shared between club leadership. 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. C. Eligibility Any club member in good standing is eligible to contribute a score to his/her club total.  The participant must be a club member at the time the contest takes place.  Scores are not calculated retroactively if a participant joins a club after having participated in a contest, but can contribute a score for future NAQP’s. 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 a participant is a member of more than one of the clubs in the NAQP Club Challenge, then that participant's score will be given to only one of the clubs.  The deciding factors will be what club he/she most associates with currently, and/or to which he/she resides closest. Participants must submit a log to the NCJ in order to be eligible to contribute a score to his/her club. D. Rewards Winning club gets possession of the traveling NAQPC trophy. E. Misc This club competition between SMC, PVRC, and NCCC 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.
