Here’s what’s happening - in 2021, two operators ( N5HA, Kenneth Bailey & W9AV, Clint Sprott ) managed to work at least 1 park every UTC day. My goal for 2022 is to do the same, and 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
Today was the second day in a row where my first contact was with a club. The Athens Radio Club snagged up a special event call to use during both the Winter Support Your Parks event, and Winter Field Day, so while I worked them as W4G, you’ll usually find them on the air as KD4QHB. They were spending Winter Field day at K-2207, but luckily for me I got them early in the day, before the pile-ups got too big.
