In the interest of stimulating activity amongst new hams, the Michigan
QSO Party offers a plaque for the high score achieved by a MiQP rookie
single-operator ("rookie" being defined as someone who has never
operated MiQP before, either by themselves or as part of a
multi-operator team). This is a really beautiful plaque, like all the
others awarded for MiQP. Certificate are also awarded to the 2nd and
3rd place rookies. However, in recent years, the interest in Rookie
competition has dwindled. In fact, nothing was awarded (the plaque or
certificates) in 2014 because no Michigan entries claimed rookie status.
Whether this lack of interest is due to poor publicity or some other
impediment is hard to tell. However, this has led to some discussion
about discontinuing these awards within the MiQP Organizing Committee.
So to stave off the extinction of these awards, if you have a ham buddy
in Michigan who likes to operate HF, and has never operated MiQP before,
why not twist their arm and get them on the air this weekend? Send them
to the "In-state Operating Tips" link in the "Contents" section on the
MiQP home page http://www.miqp.org to arm them with some strategy, and
they might even win some really spiffy hardware or a certificate for
their efforts. This should be an exciting weekend what with all 83
counties planned to be on the air, and the availability of the Cabinet
To claim rookie status, all a rookie entry must do is put "ROOKIE"
somewhere on their paper summary sheet or in their electronic Cabrillo
log file entry.
