For any and all State QSO Party buffs.  I just ran across these Changes 
to 7QP Rules. FWIW.

It is never to early to start thinking of your plans for operating in 
the 2013 7th Call Area QSO Party, set for May 4th 1300Z Saturday, to May 
5th 0700Z Sunday.  A few new items to note:

There is a new 7QP web site so change your bookmarks -


This year the organizers have split the Mobile and the County
Expedition categories.  Here's the latest scoop:

Season's Greetings!

After considering several suggestions, the 7QP rules committee has
split the County Expedition and Mobile categories. This should level
the playing field a bit in these categories. Complete rules are on the
7QP web page.

7th-area County Expedition (an operation from a temporary location
using antennas installed for the contest period, using temporary
supports or trees): single-county, county-line (must be within 500
feet of the line); single-op, multi-single, multi-multi

Mobile (station must be self-contained and capable of motion)

   a.  single-op (one person, unassisted, performs all operating,
logging and driving functions and, for safety reasons, may operate
only while parked)

   b.  multi-op (any other mobile operation)

Power: high-power, low-power, QRP

Mode: CW, Phone, Digital, Mixed

I hope this works to foster more single op mobile and more county
expeditions. This change will be communicated to the various log
programmers and all the magazine and web-based contest calendars.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
