Park-a-Day, Day 036

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

In addition to being day 36 of the Bailey-Sprott challenge, today was also BayCon. That meant I wanted to make sure to get my contact in early, since I wanted to watch those presentations, and also had some drywall to do. Luckily I was able to get my first QSO in fairly early in the morning. David, W8GM was out at K-1511 pretty much right away this morning, where I was able to catch him.

As a side note, if you didn’t happen to attend BayCon, go back and check it out - there were some really good speakers. I also have to call out the talk by Smitty, N6MTS. He’s starting a new venture, and shared the project he’s been working on for a while, that will be getting released as a commerical product. If you’re into the sats, you’re probably going to be very interested in what he’s been working on.

Bailey-Sprott Challenge Status: 36 for 36.
