|Kentucky QSO Party Operating Rules for 2021|
|Mode||CW, SSB, Digital (FT8, RTTY)|
|Bands||160, 80, 40, 20, 15, 10, 6, 2|
|Repeator Contacts||Not Allowed (any band)|
|Work Stations||Once per band per mode|
|Bonus Stations||W4NJA, KY4KY, K4KCG and K4MSU
Bonus stations may be worked ONCE per BAND and MODE for 100 bonus points per each QSO. For example, a station working W4NJA on 20M CW, RTTY and SSB would earn a total of 300 bonus points. Logging programs do not need to track the bonus points earned in each log. If the log is submitted as a Cabrillo file, the KYQP contest committee will calculate the bonus points earned and add those points automatically to each submitted log as the log is being checked for accuracy. The final results posted after the contest on the KYQP website will include the bonus points earned as part of each station final score.
This approach allows the bonus stations to change from year to year without having to ask the programmers of the various contest logging programs to update the scoring formula.
