Near the end of March is the CQ World Wide Work all prefix voice contest. I wanted to see if any of the membership would be interested in participating in this contest. This event will allow us to run, Multi-Unlimited, up to 6 rigs at once. It would also allow us to really heat it up at the club and see if there are any potential issues for field day, if we choose to have it at the club. Or we can operate as Multi-Two, this would allow us to operate two transmitters at one time, somewhat more of our standard practice.
Last year we operated as Multi-Two, low power station. What started out as casual operating quickly turned into a short, full blow event. We made some awesome contacts and added some interesting call signs to the clubs CARC Challenge log book. As a plus we also ended up winning 3rd place in the 4th call area and 17th place in North America for the club. Last year we did not intentionally plan on operating in the event. I think with a little planning and some organizing this could be another great opportunity to put the club in a high ranking position.
The link to the rules for this contest is shown below. I know it is way too early for anyone to commit but if you are interested in participating let me or one of the club officials know.
