Park-a-Day, Day 100

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

I suppose today is a milestone - 100 days into the year, and 100 days straight of hunting parks! This is probably an excellent place to pause and point out the fact that there are 39 other folks who are hanging in their with me in the park-a-day hunting. Even more suprisingly, there are 4 activators who have activated every day so far! Make sure to check out your favorite ham radio youTube channel for the monthly POTA update at the beginning of May, to see the list of who all those folx are! If you’re favorite channel doesn’t play it, you can also check out POTA’s YouTube channel, where one of our volunteers has started consolidating some of our offical POTA media in one place.

My first QSO for day 100 was a special one, because it just happened to be with another one of the POTA volunteers - James, N6NRD who was activating VE-0145 along with Tom, VE3THR.

James has been tackling some miscellaneous back end stuff for us, that has needed some attention for a while, and he’ll also likely be working on some new features with the mapping - we’re lucky to have him on board!
