Louisiana QSO Party

Frequently Asked Questions:


Question

I am working on a work-all states/work all counties award. When will the N5LCC log be posted?

Answer

After the submission deadline (30 days after end of contest) the N5LCC log will be posted to LOTW.


Question

If I make a contact in the LaQP, do I have to send in a log?

Answer

No, you don't. The purpose of the LaQP is to give Louisiana contacts to everyone needing them and have fun. That said, we encourage everyone to send in a log as we have a number of certificates available for various categories. You just might win one!


Question

I'm a county hunter and need a few Louisiana Parishes (counties). How do I know if they will be on?

Answer

You can click the link above, "Announce plans for LaQP". There are lists of planned rover activations plus a map. ANY Louisiana station, rover or fixed can submit their planned operation (Parish, bands, times, etc) to no5w (dot) chuck (at)gmail (dot) com, be added to the list.


Question

What logging software should I use?

Answer

We have thoroughly tested N1MM and CQ-X (gps enabled rover logger by NO5W). These two packages are known to score correctly, based on current rules. Both also output a Cabrillo file, the expected method of log submission.
