California QSO Party (CQP): Oct 4-5

1600Z October 4, 2003 -- 2200Z October 5, 2003

Sponsored by the Northern California Contest Club (NCCC)


Start your contest season with a “big bang” in CQP 2003. Participation was up a whopping 21% in CQP 2002. Come join us and win awards (plaques and wine), earn a certificate, get a t-shirt and most importantly “have fun” in the largest state QSO party.


Stations outside of California work as many California stations in as many CA counties as possible (CW and phone, 160-80-40-20-15-10-6-2 meters). Stations in California work everyone.

* Complete and final rules and other information at

* Free logging software CQPWin at


The most plaques and awards in any state QSO party

* 34 Plaques (wood and metal, not mere wallpaper!)

* 40 Bottles of California wine (commemorative CQP labels with your call sign)

* Certificates to each and every entrant who makes at least 100 QSOs

Commemorative CQP 2003 T-shirts are available for purchase if you make at least 100 QSOs (waived for DX entries). Please include your size (M / L / XL / XXL) and $10 ($15 for DX entries).


The all-time CQP records for in-state and out-of-state are dutifully recorded and waiting to be broken at


Send logs to Alan Maenchen, AD6E, 3330 Farthing Way, San Jose, CA 95132 or email to
