Park-a-Day, Day 009

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

Deadline day! Well, for me anyway - today is the day that I need to put the finishing touches on the monthly POTA update, which this month inlcudes the year-end update for 2021. In between trying to get my stuff together for that though, I did squeeze in a couple contacts, the first of which was was John, K4QQG who was out activating K-0265. By the looks of it John has been a busy hunter, but is new to activating - welcome to the dark side John!

Bailey-Sprott Challenge Status: 9 for 9.
