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
Friday is the beginning of the weekend for all practical purposes, which usually means tons of stations on the air. It was a little slow in the morning, but by mid day there were 20 or so active spots at pretty much any given time. Kevin, KE8ONI was the first one who popped up on 40m ssb this morning, which is what tends to work best for me, so just like yesterday, he ended up being my first contact of the day, while he was at K-9508. Oh, and incidentally, he ended up being my 3rd and 5th contacts of the day also!
