DL98 ?


Jerry N9AVY
 

Just put in checker and it seems that checker does not recognize that grid.  Wonder if checker is set up to ignore those really rare grids ??? or is it part of checkers brokenness ?

Jerry -

DL98 is one of the few grids at the extremes of the US that are excluded from the requirements for the 070 grid award. That is by design.

P.S. These grids are documented on the club's "Available Endorsements" web page, under the US-CONUS-GRIDS as follows:

Work US stations in 436 of the 488 CONUS gridsquares, in increments of 50. We took the ARRL FFMA map (http://www.arrl.org/files/file/FFMA/FFMA_2010Map-C.pdf) and excluded the following (nearly all water or VE/XE): CM79 CM86 CM93 CM94 CN70 CN72 CN73 CN74 CN75 CN76 CN77 CN78 DL79 DL98 DM02 DM03 DM12 DM22 DM31 DM61 EL15 EL28 EL58 EL79 EL84 EL86 EN29 EN48 EN57 EN58 EN62 EN63 EN64 EN67 EN85 EN86 EN92 FM02 FM13 FM25 FM26 FM27 FN03 FN14 FN25 FN35 FN46 FN51 FN53 FN57 FN66 FN67

It's a valid grid. Multiple organizations offer awards based on grids. It counts for them. But it's not valid for any current 070 award or endorsements.
