Re: TDW Bonus Stations
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I'd like to throw my name in the hat, volunteering myself & my station to be a Bonus Station for the 2021 T.D.W.
I'll be BPSK 31 QRO, (35 watts, +/-), for the entire 72 hours, on all bands.
I've re-co-ax'd my antenna's, faced the shiny side of all aluminum elements to the North, East and South & West.
I think it's important for a Bonus Station to be on all bands with as much "butt in chair" as he/she can possibly do.
I've been a Bonus Station before, and if chosen this year, I'll give it a 110% effort, again, on all bands.
I just received a shipment of Café du Monde coffee & chickory from Amazon and I'm ready!

Subject: [070Club] TDW Bonus Stations
The TDW contest is next month, and it is time for us to put out a call for volunteers to be Bonus Stations this year.
The Top Dawg of last years contest, KD6TR, is scheduled to be a bonus station. We would like to have at least one volunteer from each call area for this one.
Being a bonus station does not preclude you from being in the contest, the bonus stations are competing against each other, and you will find you are very popular among other stations attempting to score the bonus points.
All we ask is that you plan on operating for several hours every day of the contest, and make our members happy.
If you would like to be considered for a bonus station position, just provide your information (times, bands, etc., that you plan to operate) to K5SP as soon as possible. We would like to have our Bonus stations identified on the web page as soon as we can.
