Using the NA 9.15 template & multiplier files
1. Copy the .ZIP file to the directory containing the NA program. 2. Unzip it. 3. Run NA, and give the filename you want to use for the TQP. 4. For the contest, select "Tennessee QSO Party - TN stations" if you're in Tennessee, or "Tennessee QSO Party - non-TN" if you aren't. 5. Answer the rest of the NA startup questions. 6. Make adjustments to the CW messages as desired. 7. Good luck!
HINTS: If you work a mobile, enter an extra letter with the /M suffix. For example, if you work W4XYZ/M in Shelby County, enter his call as W4XYZ/M0. Otherwise, if you work him again in, say, Madison County, NA will consider him a duplicate QSO. Change this letter with each additional QSO with the same mobile.
After the contest, be sure to double-check the scoring. Contest programs have trouble properly scoring the bonus for 6 or more QSOs with the same county, and with crediting Tennessee, USA, and Canada as multipliers.
