Here’s what’s happening - in 2021, two operators (N5HA, Kenneth Bailey & W9AV, Clint Sprott) managed to work at least 1 park every day. My goal for 2022 is to do the same by hunting at least 1 park every UTC day, and secondarily, to try and write a short post about the day’s first contact. If you want to play along, feel free - I’ll be sharing updates about it during the monthly POTA updates that I prepare for the various ham radio media outlets.
now that you’re in the know about the Baily-Sprott Challenge, here’s the scoop for today:
Bailey-Sprott Challenge Update
Thursday’s are an exciting day in our house, because it usually means one thing - Thursday night disco! At our home, what that means is that around dinner time we play a random mix of dance/club/dubstep music really loud, while our kids dance like feral animals in the kitchen. Since we had this important weekly obligation in the evening, I had to make sure to get today’s contact out of the way before the festivities started. Luckily for me, right around the time I get ready to break for lunch, I managed to snag Kevin, KE8ONI while he was at K-9481.
I lucked out on some pretty good ‘insurance’ contacts today too - after lunch I got a 2fer, and then another one where 2 ops were passing the mic, plus one more, so even if someone misses uploading their log, I should be good for today:-) It also dawned on me that if I get 2 or 3 parks a day, I might actaully break the top 200 hunters (when counting parks) for the year, which would be neat, but certainly isn’t one of my personal priorities.
