    Have Hunted 600 Unique Parks

    Posted: 31 Mar 2022 11:04 AM PDT

    The Parks on the Air (POTA) program continues to hold my attention,
    partially because of the enormous popularity (you cant turn on a radio
    without hearing someone calling CQ POTA), and also due to the variety of awards.  Today I was granted the Texas Wild Rice award for confirmed
    contacts with 600 unique parks.  Thank you POTA people!

    Goal Review 2022

    Posted: 31 Mar 2022 11:00 AM PDT

    I started the year with 5 goals.  Two have been completed and two are underway:

    Teach a CW Academy Course This goal has been completed after teaching 16 classes in January and March.  All seven students were advanced to the next higher level
    Teach a Technician Course The planning has been completed for a class to
    begin on April 19th.  So far 17 students have signed up.
    Conduct NCRC’s first electronic VE exam.  This was completed on March 11th.  Beyond a doubt this is by far the most efficient way of giving an exam.  NCRC will be funding the purchase of additional tablet computers to support this activity.
    Build my QRP-Labs QCX 20m Transceiver I have not begun this task.
    Participate in 120+ CWTs for the CWops Gold Medal.  For the 2022 year, I
    have completed 52 CWTs.  Today is actually my 1 year anniversary of my
    first CWT, and I have completed 143 of them during that period of time.
