SPAR Winter Field Day Contest Log 1.0 is Now Available!

Home News

Hi All,

I'm especially excited to announce that:

SPAR Winter Field Day Contest Log 1.0 is Now Available!

This contest has all the excitement and fun of ARRL's June event! The SPAR folks have tweaked the exchange for this year's contest by adding ARRL sections and dropping RST, so the exchange is now very similar to ARRL Field Day, plus current temperature. This will be a great opportunity to get together with ham friends or operate solo, enjoy the contest and get some practice in for the summer contest too!

Show off Amateur Radio, see how many sections you can work, compete for a high score or just enjoy making some casual contacts. Just like ARRL Field Day, there's lots of ways to have fun with this contest!

Don't worry, you don't have to set up outside in the cold if you don't want to. The brave souls who go outdoors get bonus points, but you can operate from home on commercial power and work everyone if you like. You can earn bonus points if you operate on emergency power or away from home, including public locations too!

Circle your calendars for this contest! It is a 24 hour event, starting at 1700 UTC (12:00 noon EST) Saturday, January 24 2015. Station set up may begin no earlier than 1300 UTC (8:00 AM EST) on January 24, 2015. This is the weekend between the NFL conference championships and the Superbowl, so there's no football to miss.

You'll find the complete rules here:

As always, additional programs I add to the N3FJP Software Package are free to Package users. Just e-mail Kimberly and me and we will send you a password for this new program!

Donations are Gratefully Accepted!

And in response to the often asked question for which Kimberly and I are very grateful...

"I know your upgrades are free, but I also realize how much time and effort coding these enhancements and new programs take and that your pricing policy doesn't fully reflect that. Can I send you something to show my appreciation for your continued efforts?"

Yes, thanks so much, your continued support in any amount is very welcome and deeply appreciated! You can use this page:
