Big ways to get Big points for the D&G challenge

Some of the POTA activators are able to get upwards of 200 points in 1 day!  Those folks are making QSOs, and QSOs to MARC members are worth 5 points each (both for activator and hunter).  The Activator gets additional points for trekking out to the wilderness and setting up their gear.

Contesting folks are able to also get a lot of points for working a contest.  For example this past weekend was the PSKFest and ARRL RTTY Roundup.   The band conditions were pretty good and one could have easily racked up 200+ points without too much seat time.

Later this month the following contests can help your scores;
  • NA CW QSO party - 1/15 - 1/16
  • NA SSB QSO party  - 1/22 -1/23
  • CQ 160M CW contest - 1/28 - 1/30
Those three are just a few of the 20+ contests this month (January).  Check out this site to see the list; https://www.contestcalendar.com/contestcal.html

Remember to check into the MARC Nets for additional points!

Have you broken 50 points yet?  There is still time.  Get on the air (GOTA).  Hop on the repeater (147.360), see who's listening then QSY to a simplex 2m frequency and rack up points.

Score sheets are due to me no later than February 10, 2022 by 8AM for January numbers.
