The new rules are here. We can discuss the rules in this topic, thanks.

Nice idea Nicola.
My only suggestion is that under rule V.- B. Instead of limiting contacts to only once per member station, could it be 'once per band'? Club members are hard to find and once per band might increase the number of entries.

This is true, but the rule is intended to avoid agreements to rapidly increase the score. However, we could establish two rankings: a general ranking with multiple contacts ('once per band') and a special ranking without multiple contacts (a special award for solo sailing).

Another idea: multiple contacts are not allowed on the same day. ;)

I would prefer much simpler rules, for examples:

- No ITU/DXCC multipliers, it makes scoring complicated
- No exchange numbers needed
- 1 point for QSOs between the same country, 3 points for the same continent and 10 points for DX

Points are mulitplied by 2 when power is 1 Watt or below
It would be nice to see the number of countries worked in the scoring

Anyone want to comment on this?  :D

Nice ideas ....

But all a bit compicated ..... Very easiest way ..... No numbers .... all contacts counting you worked over the year with qrp power .... QSO with no members own country and/or own continet count 1 pont, no member from DX count 2 points, member from own country and/or continent count 3 points and member from DX count 5 points ..... Each contact QRP/QRP (no difference between members and no members) gives 1 extra multiplier (so aks the qao partner about the used power) ....

No upload of contacts allowed which you work in an official contest (like cqww, cqwpx e.g.) but pileup work for DX allowed

Power limits:

CW & Digitals: 5 Watt max.
SSB: 10 Watt max.

Only my 2 cents  ;) ;)

Yes, I agree. Contest QSOs should be excluded. But somehow there must be an extra bonus when you work a QRP club member. This is to encourage membership!  8)

Ok, but how could I manage so many logs? It would take a software...  ^-^

Please clarify Nicola - are credits only given for contacts with QRPC members?
