2 Way QRP Award
It's easy to work a station running a KW and a huge beam with your QRP, but not so easy when the other station is also running QRP. This award honors your achievements in making such 2 way QRP QSO's.
Time Frame For Qualifying QSO's:
July 1, 2005 0000Z through the present
Basic Award Premise:
Make as many 2 way QRP QSO's as possible.
HAM YOU WORK:
Rag chew, DX, and contest QSO's are acceptable as long as you are certain that the other station is indeed running QRP. The same station can be worked more than once as long as it doesn't become a travesty where someone works their ham friend in town 20 times or anything like that.
QSO's with a NAQCC member: 2 points
QSO's with a Non-member: 1 point
QSO's with a DX NAQCC Member: 4 points
QSO's with a DX Non-member: 3 points
DX for North American operators (The U.S., Canada or Mexico) is considered as any contact outside the North American Continent, including the Caribbean. For European, South or Central American or Asian operators, DX shall be considered as any QSO involving a distance of 3,000 miles (4,828 Kilometers) or more.
