Michigan QSO Party
The Michigan QSO Party Awards Program recognizes entries for their accomplishments that year through a variety of plaques and certificates.
The winners of each major category will be awarded a handsome plaque engraved with the year of the contest and the details of the winning effort. Plaques will be awarded in the following categories:
High Score - Michigan Single Operator - High Power
High Score - Michigan Single Operator - Low Power
High Score - Michigan Single Operator - QRP
High Score - Michigan Multi Operator - Single-Transmitter
High Score - Michigan Multi Operator - Multi-Transmitter
High Score - Michigan Mobile - Solo Operator
High Score - Michigan Mobile - Multi Operator
High Score - Michigan Emergency Operations Center Station
High Score - Out of State Single Operator - Eastern Region (see note *)
High Score - Out of State Single Operator - Western Region (see note *)
* For purposes of the Out of State Single Operator award, the "western region" is defined as those states which lie entirely or mostly in the Pacific or Mountain Time Zones. This includes the states of AZ, CA, CO, ID, MT, NM, NV, OR, UT, WA and WY, plus the Canadian provinces of SK, AB, BC, NT and YT. All other states and Canadian provinces are located in the "eastern region", which in general covers the Eastern and Central Time Zones.
A special plaque for 'MiQP Rookie Of The Year' will be awarded to the highest Michigan Single Operator score submitted by a first time MiQP participant. To be eligible, the entrant must put the word "Rookie" somewhere on their summary sheet or in their electronic log file.
The certificate program recognizes single-operators at the local level, and additional recognition overall in the non-single operator categories. The following certificates will be awarded:
The top single-operator score in each Michigan county making at least 50 QSOs.
The top single-operator score in each state or Canadian province making at least 25 QSOs.
The 2nd and 3rd place scores in the Michigan multi-single, multi-multi, EOC, mobile-solo and mobile-multi categories.
The 2nd and 3rd place single-op scores outside of Michigan from the Eastern/Central and Mountain/Pacific time zones.
The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place DX single-op entrants.
The top Club Competition score (in-state and out-of-state).
In addition, the contest results will recognize the top three stations (both in-state and out-of-state) ranked by the number of Michigan counties worked overall. The top station (both in-state and out-of-state) will be awarded a certificate.
The MiQP Awards Program is supported by donations from clubs and private individuals from within the state. Groups or individuals who wish to contribute towards the MiQP Awards Program should contact MiQP Awards Manager Mike Van Buren, WD8S at email@example.com.
Note: The MiQP Committee reserves the right to refrain from awarding plaques in instances where there were fewer than three entries within the category.
