The NOCC: NAQP Online Club Challenge
The Potomac Valley Radio Club welcomes all contest clubs to compete in the NAQP Online Club
Challenge starting in January 2023. This event encourages not just rivalry between clubs, but also
challenges individual club members to increase their BIC (Butt-In-Chair) time as they observe their score
in real-time on the online scoreboard relative to their neighbors.
How do you contribute your NAQP scores to your club? You must report your score in real-time to the
Contest Online Scoreboard. Sign up for the Contest Online Scoreboard by creating a scoreboard profile
and following the instructions for your logger at https://contestonlinescore.com/blog/documents/.
Make sure your logger is configured with your full club name (for example, in N1MM+, under Config-
>Change Your Station Data in the “Club” field).
While each NAQP is going on, compare your score on the Contest Online Scoreboard’s “Club” tabulation
to those with similar stations in your club and competing clubs. Every time you feel a need to get up,
look at how close the guy is right behind you and know that he and others will probably pass you up
while you’re taking a break.
How are club results computed? The day after each NAQP, the NOCC coordinator (PVRC for the first
year) will check club score totals by viewing the “Club” tab for the recently completed contest. Single-
Op, Single-Op Assisted, and M/2 scores all count towards each club’s total for the contest which are
recorded in a spreadsheet and tracked at https://pvrc.org/nocc.html
Total Contest Online Scoreboard points for each club will be summed for all six calendar-year NAQP
events: January CW and SSB, February RTTY, July RTTY, and August CW and SSB. In late August, the final
NOCC club totals will be announced by the NOCC Coordinator.
