New England QSO Party


New England (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI and VT) stations work everyone and send RST and 3-letter county, followed by your 2-letter state. Multipliers are the 50 states, 14 VE provinces and DXCC countries per log. DX mults are be tagged *dxccprefix in the log.

You do not enter anything in the `State` field when working non-NE stations. Enter the State or Province sent to you into the `SPC/DX` field and just hit <Enter> or <Space> for the `State` input. The same goes for DX stations being worked. SPC = State Province County.

I have not coded anything for mobiles and do not know what that situation produces while logging.

Others work the 6 NE state stations only and send RST and State/Province/DX. Multipliers are the 67 CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, VT counties per log.

The received exchange is a three letter county abbreviation, plus a 2 letter state. The abbreviations are listed in the NEQP rules and in the datafile [neqp_co.txt] . GenLog does not check the spelling of QSO exchange information that you enter!  {Worked} + {To Work} should be 67. If not, an entry is probably mispelled.

QSO points: PH=1 point, CW/DIG=2 points.
Score = QSO points  X  Multipliers.

Note:
The 5 character countystate can be entered in the county field as one entry. Or, enter the county and the state separately in the 2 fields provided. Be familiar with this before logging.

Your state (entered in the setup field) is the key that tells GenLog what end of the QSO you are operating from.
