2020 SCQP “RARE” County Bonus

Allendale, Barnwell, Hampton & Jasper counties tied for being our least contacted county title last year, so this year you will receive 50 extra bonus points for each valid contact with amateurs located in these FOUR RARE counties. These bonus points will be calculated by the SCQP scoring system. Do not be alarmed if this bonus isn’t scored by your logging software.


The NAQP RTTY contest runs from 1800z  on Saturday for 12 hours. There will be much more RTTY stations on the air during this period, so we need to adjust our band plan for CW contacts. We would recommend that Mobiles operate between 25-35 and fixed stations start at 35kcs. Also, remember to spot yourself on the SCQP Spotter Page (link in left column) so that folks can find you wherever frequency you may use.

The SCQP is an approved
