Special CQP Wine Award

The top 20 CA and top 20 non-CA Single-Op stations will receive a personalized bottle of NCCC Private Reserve California Wine. Winners under the age of 21 will receive a non-alcoholic personalized award.  The NCCC Private Reserve California Wine is graciously donated by Twisted Oak Winery. Twisted Oak is located in the Sierra Foothills of California and produces wine made from grapes like Syrah, Grenache, Viognier, and Tempranillo. Twisted Oak is owned and operated by NCCC Member Jeff Stai, WK6I.

Certificate of Achievement

If you submit a CQP Log, you will be eligible for a personalized CQP Certificate of Achievement. You can print your certificate online.

CQP T-Shirts

CQP T-Shirts - Like the wine, each year’s T-shirt is a special vintage.  All entries qualify for the special CQP T-shirt -- no minimum number of QSOs needed.  The 2018 CQP T-Shirt color will be MEDIUM GRAY.   Place your order for a T-shirt by sending an email to shirts@cqp.org stating the sizes and quantities for each size (M/L/XL/XXL), the call sign of the CQP operation, the call sign of the person placing the order, and the address to ship to.  Send payment, $15 ($20 for DX entries), either via PayPal [using this email address: paypal@nccc.cc ] -- or a check to: NCCC, c/o Tom Carney, K6EU, 1545 Elwood Drive, Los Gatos, CA 95032.  All orders are due by January 31, 2019.

NOTE: You MUST send that email order to shirts@cqp.org to trigger the order. If you don't, your order will not be processed.

Worked All California Counties Award (WACC)

The NCCC offers the WACC (Worked All California Counties) award for anyone working all 58 California counties anytime, as part of CQP or other operating.  See the WACC web page for more details and an application form.

Distribution of Awards

Our log-check team endeavors to do its best to publish results as soon as possible after the CQP.  The bulk of the awards will be mailed out if recipients don't pick them up at an NCCC meeting or IDXC in Visalia, CA in April or the Dayton, OH Hamvention in May.  E-mail to CQP Info to let us know if you can collect your awards at one of these two conventions.
