This event will test your ingenuity and stealthy antenna talents in order to put up an antenna that will send your signals into the ether. It is not impossible.
After all, a 160M dipole is only 272 feet long.
And it will be worth pursuing, in order to grab that Top Band Endorsement Sticker with 20 QSOS on 160M. Only 43 of our 2,706 members have earned this one.
Last year, 12 logs were submitted with 11 QSOs winning. A record 24 logs were submitted in 2015, with 35 QSOs winning. Let’s see if we can beat that turnout.
And mark your calendars for the Annual Triple Play Low Band Sprint on November 9 to 11.
