Clubs & Individuals, Please Join School Club Roundup Too!

Home News

Hi Gang,

As many of you know, the ARRL School Club Roundup Contest is running this week. The greatest emphasis is to work schools (they are worth 5 multipliers each), but non school clubs are worth two multipliers each as well and everyone, including individuals, is worth a QSO point!

So far, I've only run across two, non school club stations participating and I understand only a handful of clubs submitted scores for the last SCR contest. This is a great opportunity for your club to join in, support a great event and likely see your club place well in the scoring too! Since clubs are worth two multipliers each, they are especially sought after! Clubs, the kids would love to have your multipliers in their log!

Even if you are in the individual category (not associated with a school or a club), by all means please participate, work stations and call CQ School Club Roundup too! Each state is a multiplier and your state may be a new one for them! In addition to multipliers, contacts with individuals are worth a point as well!

Perhaps the best reason of all for you to participate has nothing to do with scoring. While some young operators are perfectly happy running a frequency (and doing a great job too), many kids are are a bit more tentative. They feel more comfortable searching and pouncing. Your getting on the air and calling CQ School Club Roundup will give them an opportunity for another Q in their log and another good experience with Amateur Radio!

So far this week, I've found activity tends to pick up around lunchtime and continues into the evening. If you are working during the day, you can still likely make a few Qs if you get on right after work.

There are lots of great reasons to jump into the School Club Roundup. Please join in!

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:
