Club72 QRP Marathon - April 2011

I received the above certificate for participating in the Club72 April 2011 QRP Marathon.  Out of 28 entries, I came in 24th - but hey, I was the only W/K/N station to participate!  Fred VE3FAL was the only VE station to participate.

There's another one of these that will occur in July of this year.  You should join and participate.  This is another one of those organizations that should be near and dear to any Ham's heart - membership is free!

To join in the Marathon you just enter your QSO for the day where you got your best distance.  Enter in the maidenhead locators for the two stations, the power used and hit submit and BINGO, your entry is automatically tabulated.  You can enter one QSO per day, so if you have the time to make one a day for 30 days - you could end up scoring big!

It's another fun activity and don't think that your QSOs necessarily have to be DX - just think MPW, really.  A 500 mW QSO between NJ and CA would have been a HUGE entry in this competition.
