Thank you to all who participated in the 2016 running of the NJQP! And a special thanks to those of you who submitted logs. 2016 was a special year for us here in BCRC as it marked the 5th year we have sponsored the NJQP. The awards are being processed.
Congratulations to this year’s winners! Carol N2MM took top honors in NJ, followed closely this year by NNJ top scorer Mike WS2E. The number one spot from outside of NJ went to Steve KZ2I, with Marc W4MPS a close second. Both KZ2I and W4MPS worked all 21 counties – an NJQP sweep! The gavel this year belongs to top NJ club Sussex County ARC, and the Delaware Valley Radio Association finished second. An interesting side note about DVRA; they recently completely rebuilt their club station and their goal was to have it completed by the NJQP! They made it! We appreciate the special effort!
Have to give well deserved recognition for another special effort by two rovers - K0BAK who covered NNJ and K2AA/R who covered SNJ. Thanks guys! And also thank you to SNJ SM Skip N2EI who once again sponsored the plaque for the top SNJ station, and to Steve K2SO for sponsoring the top scoring NNJ plaque!
As mentioned above, this was our 5th year sponsoring the NJQP. In our first year, 2012, there were 39 logs submitted, 22 from NJ and 17 from out of state which represented 12 states, 8 counties, 2 Canadians, and no DX. Five NJ clubs were represented. This year, 2016, 102 logs were sent in, 36 from NJ, 53 from out of NJ, 6 Canadian, and 7 DX which represented 17 counties, 25 states, and 12 NJ clubs! Thanks to all of you, the NJQP is growing! We’re still small potatoes, but interest appears to be increasing. BCRC is doing a better job too. In 2012 our club bonus station K2TD made 65 QSOs which appeared in about 1/3 of the logs. In 2016 K2TD made over 500 QSOs in about 2/3 of the logs.
Just one note with regard to logs; several logs were received with no power level so we had to place those in the High power category. On the other extreme we had 6 QRP entries, so this entry category continues to grow. The NJQP continues its growth. Let your ham friends know so they can join in on the fun. The Burlington County Radio Club looks forward to hearing you on the air for NJQP 2017 – mark September 16-17 on your calendar! Until then, 73 and good DX!
