New NA Files For Ohio QSO Party
Beginning in 2012, the rules for the Ohio QSO Party were changed for
in-state (i.e., Ohio) stations only. In prior years, DX stations (which
send "DX" as their location abbreviation) had no value as multipliers
for the Ohio stations that worked them. Beginning with the 2012 OhQP,
"DX" now counts as a multiplier. Since non-Ohio stations can only work
Ohio stations in the contest, this change only affects Ohio stations.
In order to properly support the scoring for this new rule, the
operation of the NA Logging Program must be revised. QSOs with "DX"
stations (which formerly provided no multiplier credit) now need to be
scored appropriately. Fortunately, the NA program itself does not need
to be revised, but two of its support files for OhQP need to be updated:
OHQSO1.CRT The Contest Rules Template File for in-state (Ohio)
stations in OhQP
OHQSO.MLT The Multiplier List File for in-state stations
Simply download these files from the DATOM Engineering Home Page at
http://www.datomonline.com and copy them over the existing files on your
computer. These files will work with any NA 10 version, as well as the
free demo version on the OhQP web site. Again, only stations operating
from Ohio need these new files.
Good luck in the 2012 Ohio QSO Party this weekend, August 25, 2012,
starting at 12:00 noon EDST.
