Subject: [MRRC] New OhQP Website
The OhQP has a new website.
Please visit http://www.ohqp.org <http://www.ohqp.org/> to see the results.
Note: If you have bookmarks to pages other than the home page, they should be deleted as they will no longer work.
So what’s different?
The site is now optimized to work better from your smartphone to your tablet to your desktop/notebook.
A printer icon has been added to most pages allowing the page to be formatted and printed. Look for the icon near the top or bottom of the page.
Graphic contest has been cut to a minimum except where it is necessary. The purpose of the site is to convey information, most of which is textual in nature, and it has been optimized to accomplish that task hopefully in a visually coherent/pleasing manner.
Results are now available in table form to be viewed online going back to 2002. One no longer needs to download the full-writeup/pdf to see line score results for a given year.
The Records page now includes a table of Ohio County records by entry category. This replaces the Ohio map and hover method that was used in the past.
Log Submittal - Improvements were made to do more checking on the browser side to verify all fields were filled in correctly before allowing submission to the server.
A Photo section has been added and photos received this year are playing as a slideshow. If you’d like your photo included, please send it to photo at ohqp.org Countdown to next OhQP has been added.
Solar-Terrestrial Data has been added.
Contest calendar has been added.
ARRL News has been added.
Many things have changed behind the scenes that will further enable us to do more for OhQP web users while also helping us with maintenance.
What’s the same?
Nothing was lost, all the same content from the old site remains available.
Results articles are still available for download.
The Records page continues to show overall category record holders in Ohio/North-America/DX.
Submit and View Plans is still available You can still get your 2015 Certificate online Submit your log and view logs received
We hope you enjoy the site and find it useful. Thanks for your continued support of the OhQP.
