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
Wow - what a slog today was! I was on and off a bunch of calls for my day job, which is fairly normal. Normally between calls I can check the spotter, spin the dial, and catch a park or 2 fairly easily. I guess just by luck (or un-luck) of geography, for some reason quite a few of the stations today I just couldn’t hear. Finally around 19:30 zulu I found a station that I was able to hear enough to make a contact with - Ty, N5FFN who was activating a 2fer at K-7443 & K-7523. Those to parks must be a relatively quick trip for Ty, because I got worked him at the same 2fer just a few days ago. Thanks for being out there Ty!
