A new version of the OQP.DAT is available on the download page for the 2017 running of the Ontario QSO Party. The call signs of the bonus point stations has been updated. It also has two changes in the list of valid DXCC entities. Midway I. (KH4) and Kure I. (KH7K) have been removed as they were placed on the list of deleted DXCC entities by the ARRL.
April 5, 2013
Updated the PREFIXES.TXT and OQP.DAT file with new DXCC multipliers of: PJ2, PJ4, PJ5 and PJ6, PJ7, and Z8. The prefixes.txt file is for information only and is not used by the programs. Users who have the 1.07.1 version of the programs do not need to download the .zip file again.
April 3, 2007
Version 1.07.1 is now available for download. The changes are only in the post processing program. The export function creates a single output file when exporting multiple log files. The summary sheets show the day of the month on which a clean sweep was achieved in addition to the time.
March 27, 2007
Version 1.07 is now available for download. This release was needed due to changes in this years rules regarding scoring, allowed bands, and valid multipliers. If you use this software, either during or after the OQP, you MUST use this new release. Versions earlier than 1.07 will not score your 2007 entry correctly.

Version 1.04 is now available for download. This release consists of some minor bug fixes and clean up of some minor user interface issues. Additional changes were made as part of the plans to spin off the program as a general QSO party logging program. One of the more important changes allows recognition of a bonus point station whether it is fixed, mobile, or rover without the need to change any of the data files. The programs can also be used by SWL's.
October 22, 2002
This release consists of a few minor bug fixes, some cosmetic changes, and some enhancements. The enhancements do not change the way a user interacts with the program.
