Hams planning to operate in MiQP are invited to check out the Planned Operations page (see the link just below the Michigan map at the top of this page). This page lists the 83 Michigan counties and the callsigns of stations planning to be active from each county. MiQP participants can take note of the listed callsigns from rare counties and be on the lookout for these stations during to contest to snag additional county multipliers.


*** New Multiplier for 2015 MiQP ***


MiQP rules require that when working stations outside of the USA and Canada in the contest, their location should be logged as "DX". For the 2015 MiQP, the contest rules have been changed to count "DX" as a multiplier, adding two multiplier opportunities for your score (once on CW, and once on phone). Entrants should not be concerned if their logging software does not count a "DX" station as a multiplier. They will receive multiplier credit for any "DX" QSOs when their log is re-scored by the contest committee.
