|7QP - the 7th Call Area QSO Party|
Late Rule Change per COVID-19 Guidelines
To help facilitate home operations, the following 7QP rule changes will be in effect:
- 7th area Multi-Operator stations will be allowed to operate from multiple QTHs as long as all stations are located in the same county and give the same state-county five-character exchange.
- Non-7th area Multi-Operator stations will be allowed to operate from multiple QTHs as long as all stations are located in the same state and give the same state report.
The intent of these changes is to allow operators of multi-operator stations to each operate from their home station while still being able to enter the multi-operator category under a single callsign. Stations operating in this manner must share log data to avoid DUPEs, have only one transmitted signal on any given mode/band combination at a time, and submit a single, combined log.
