CQP 2020 Begins:


The SEQUOIA Challenge

CQP 2020 includes a special award that commemorates the Northern California Contest Club’s 50th anniversary, while also celebrating California’s state tree, the mighty Redwood. 

Here’s how to get your colorful commemorative certificate:

  1. Participate in CQP and work a minimum of 100 QSOs.
  2. Work seven of the speciaal callsigns to spell out SEQUOIA. Look for special 1x1 callsigns ending in the letters S, E, Q, U, O, I, and A.  There will be three of each on the air, for example N6S, K6S and W6S, so there will be many ways to win.
  3. Turn in your log.





The tallest trees in the world are redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens), which tower above the ground in California. These trees can easily reach heights of 300 feet (91 meters). Among the redwoods, a tree named Hyperion dwarfs them all. The tree was discovered in 2006, and is 379.7 feet (115.7 m) tall.
