I think the 50 contact requirement should remain. Easy enough to get,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
especially during a club event. I was able to very *VERY* casually work 5
stations I'd never worked before last night between 8 and 10 pm local on 40
and 80 meters. Personally, I'm a lot more interested in quality members
than the quantity of them.

PSK contacts and 1 confirmed?only
070 requires QSOs prior to becoming a member to become an active 070active
with 070 and PSK?or
even a few hours but with FT8 taking the front seat for most used digitalthat
contests are open to anyone wouldn't that make more sense?on
the right side of the Home Page "Who's Online" most times there is betweenfor
membership to anyone with no hoops to jump....just request membership thenand
PSK activity on the bands increase so I'm all for 070/PSK.
These are some great questions. I would assume the requirement for
coming in with contacts was originally put in place to show a level of
commitment to PSK (probably to weed out "paper chasers" not interested
helping the club as a whole). That's just a guess on my part, but it's
worth reviewing. If there isn't a solid reason for it, it might be time
to change it.
The impetus behind opening the contests to everyone was for similar
reasons, so it's a reasonable thing to consider. Maybe a
modification/combination of both would work instead? For example,
instead of 50 + a confirmed QSO, maybe just the confirmed QSO. I don't
think it would be unreasonable to show at least some minimal proof of an
interest in PSK31. The single QSO would be enough to meet that with a
minimum of effort.
I'd be interested in hearing what more people think about this.
