BCQP 2018 Results — please tell club members


Everyone who submitted a log electronically in BCQP 2018 will be receiving a similar email with links to results information. But I want to let clubs know, too, so that individuals who didn’t send in a log have access to this year’s results for future reference.
Please feel free to forward this email to members of the club and/or mention at your next meeting.
The BCQP homepage is http://orcadxcc.org/bcqp.html and all info can be accessed from there. Or use the links below for specific content.
2018 Report
BCQP is the only regular on-air event that puts BC in the spotlight. I can’t say this strongly or often enough. And the support and encouragement offered through local clubs is so important. Thank you for keeping the BCQP profile high. But let’s build on the momentum and build the profile even higher for 2019.

BCQP Promotion

The most important thing to know is the date and time of the 2015 event: February 7, local time, 8am to 8pm (UTC 1600z Feb 7 to 0400z Feb 8).

Rules, tools, helpful hints, in-depth event analysis/reports and scores from past years, examples of the lovely photo-based certificates and plaques… all available for viewing from links on the BCQP page of the Orca DXCC website. Go to Orcadxcc

As always, top scores in every class receive a one-of-a-kind certificate showcasing beautiful BC . It’s a different photo every year and taken especially for the BCQP certificates and plaques. Definitely shack-worthy.
