Park-a-Day, Day 037

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

There was quite a lot of POTA activity on the bands today, but I only mananged 3 contacts in between the stuff I had going on around the house. Of those three, the first one was James, W6ZD. He was out activating K-8682, and had great sounding signal.

Today was also the day where I put together the monthly POTA update. For those official updates, we’re looking at Bailey-Sprott numbers on a one week lag, to allow time for logs submissions to catch up. You’ll likely see it on one of the various Ham Radio YouTube channels in the next several days, but as of day number 30 there are 5 activators that have activated every day, and 91 hunters that have hunted every day. We’ve still got a pretty good crowd!

Bailey-Sprott Challenge Status: 37 for 37.
