The 365+1 is what John said. But maybe a bit of
background will be of help.
It all started with David' s - KJ4IZW - "fiendish" 24/7
award which requires a PSK31 QSO in each 1 hour block in
the week or 168 different hour blocks (24 x 7). Any band
and you can work the same station in different hour
blocks. That is not an easy thing to do! It not only
requires weird hours and going without sleep, but you have
to learn a lot about nighttime propagation and when you
can work to where. Having friends (like here on the list)
to set schedules with really helps. It also helps if you
are retired and don't have to get up to go to work in the
morning. Hi hi! Not a lot of members have done it....only
30 out of over 2400 members at last count.
After I completed the 24/7 and got caught up on sleep, I
got to feeling like "what comes next?" I was looking back
at my log and was surprised to find that I only was doing
a PSK31 QSO about 160 days out of the year on average.
Seemed like having a PSK31 QSO on each day of the year
might be a good idea for "what comes next?" So I
suggested it here on the server, and several people
thought it might be fun and increase the amount of PSK31
activity. Only one problem....2016 was a leap year and
would have 366 not 365 days. Hence a special notation for
working any Leap Day and the 365+1.
The official start was January 1, 2016. Any PSK31 QSOs
since that date count. There is no end date that I'm
aware of. If you miss a day you can fill it in next
year. The idea is to fill all the slots - 365+1. A few
did it "clean sweep" in 2016. Others have from just one
day to many, many days to fill in during 2017 to complete.
When you upload your log to David's 070 Awards Progress
Checker (as opposed to the KJ4IZW Contest Scorer) it
automatically calculates your progress. Just cli! ck on
the 070-365 option on the Awards Progress bar and it open
a page showing you the complete listing and status of
everyone. Find you call and click on it and it displays a
matrix of the days you have worked and the days that are
Good luck! And I hope you find it as much fun as I did!
