Be sure to review the rules at: TDW Rules


There will be 8 Bonus Stations spread across the continent, so everybody should have plenty to pick from. Bonus Stations count as 100 points.


2020 TDW Top Dawg Tom, KD6TR, will be a Bonus Station. He will be joined by another PNW target, Barry, VA7GEM. The 8 bonus stations straddle the US with 2,571 miles separating VA7GEM and KC3FL. And N5SLY and KE5PYF are cozied up just 64 miles apart.


Here is the complete list of 2021 Bonus Stations.



A popular contest like the TDW is an optimal opportunity to make great progress on your endorsements. Several members are oh, so close to LONP success.  Matthew, KT5WB sits at 98 QSOs; Darl, NA8W is at 90; and Jim, W0JSL is at 90 poised to grab their LONP. Keep your eyes open for new Grids.

Don’t forget to check for Sporadic-E propagation on 6M. It is the season for that! Post your QSY intentions on the Reflector and be sure to spot anything seen (and yourself) on PSKReporter.

Logs will be due 1 week after the contest closes.

So check the rules, arrange your schedule to participate as much as you can, relax and enjoy the PODXS 070 TDW Contest.
