I can only answer that when I suggested the endorsement that you had to work 25 different stations. 
It is possible that the guidelines may have been changed by club management. 
I will defer to club management for their opinion on the matter. 
I am good on whatever decision is made. 
Hope that Jim is reading this and will  clarify this for the members.

Jeff,
I'm not arguing the subject, but it appears that the original rules have changed.  
As you're explaining it, if I work you on a band, you count as 1 of the 25 needed for a certificate.
But if I work you on a different band, it's counted already, and doesn't count towards the 25 needed?
This is not what the email from Stan, W9SMR says.
Let me quote:
- Make one QSO per station per band. That means the same station on another band is a second QSO, but a second QSO on the same band is a dupe.
I'm going to "work 1st, worry later".

Hello Bill here N3GTY .... Here is good one... Similar problem with mine a while back it was resolved when I figured out that a squirrel chewed my CAT Cable that I was using for control wiring. Those things are like rats with furry tails. 73 for now Bill

Only one coax runs out to an Ameritron 5 position switch at base of tower and coax switch selects proper antennas.  Only thing I can remember happening was a few years ago one of the relay armatures became disconnected when a spring broke.  Usually get out there once a year to burnish relay contacts.

Unless the guidelines were changed it must be 25 different stations. 
Working the same station on a different band is a dupe. 
It is a challenge but can be done. 
It runs for a full 24 hours starting at 0.00 Zulu till 23:59 on December 25th
Once again good luck to all !!

Re: Christmas Run 2020 - "Operating Event"

Stephen Melachrinos
 

Jim (and others) -

There are lots of uses of CQ with a qualifier that don't imply a contest. "CQ DX" doesn't mean it's a DX contest. "CQ Hawaii" typically means you want to work a KH6, not that it's the Hawaii QSO Party. Lots of nets call "CQ <fill in net name> net".

I think the "proof" is in the QSOs. There's nothing actually wrong with a contest-type QSO ("599 and thanks"). But the "suggested" exchange of Christmas greetings should indicate it's not a contest, especially if the content of the QSO included an explanation something like "the members of the 070 club are each trying to work 25 other stations to offer Christmas greetings." 

In retrospect, and unfortunately thinking through this in public (on the reflector), I wish I had tweaked the dupe rule to state "25 different stations (same station on different bands is still a dupe)." That would have been a little more consistent with "sending Christmas greetings to 25 stations" instead of "make 25 QSOs." I still don't think it's a problem, but maybe it could have been a little better.
