Re: DOUBLEHEADER SPRINT = Where is everybody?!

Stan,

Had nine QSOs in the space of an hour and 20 minutes on 40m earlier this evening, then either the band died about 0300 UTC  or everybody went to 80 or 160.

Had a community Holiday party earlier, Got on about 10:30.

Worked KI0HZ and KD9ADB on 40m and have not seen any other traces.

Would love to grab some 160M for my Top Band Endorsement.

Gimme a holler!

Subject: [070Club] STARTS TOMORROW - DOUBLEHEADER TRIPLE PLAY LOW BAND SPRINT !

The Ø7Ø Club DOUBLEHEADER TRIPLE PLAY LOW BAND SPRINT – Starts Tomorrow

This is a 3 day event – Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings in US.


Sprint Rules – Work a 6 hour block each UTC Date. For Scoring, your 6 hour block will start with the hour you select on the Scoring page and continue for the next 6 hours. You may have only one “Block” or “Block Portion” on a given UTC date.



Work each station once per band. (Same station, same band, different day is a dupe!)



Open to all licensed radio amateurs. Using 40M, 80M and 160M.

(The on-line Scorer did not perform correctly for the Triple Play in November. Results were prepared manually by Rick, N7WE. Thank you, Rick!

- Hopefully the on-line scoring will be correct for this contest.)

This event will again test your ingenuity and stealthy antenna talents. But with 3 bands to choose from, you can optimize your luck with propagation.

And it will again be worth pursuing, in order to grab that Top Band Endorsement Sticker with 20 QSOS on 160M. And 160M QSOs count as 3 points each. Only 43 of our 2,706 members have earned the Top Band Sticker.



It is helpful to post your intentions to QSY on the Reflector. Also, be sure to use PSKReporter and to Spot calls seen. We need all the help we can get.



This is one of our most popular contests. Last year, 37 logs were submitted. Matt, W5MMW, won Top Dawg honors and First Place in the 50W  category with a spectacular 90 QSOs.



Let’s see if we can beat that turnout.
