Field Day Bonus Points

Peter J Stohrer, W1FEA, writes on the NH ARRL Members List:

Hello NH Field Day participants,

A reminder that 100 bonus points is available for sending a radiogram to the Section Manager or Section Emergency Coordinator during the Field Day event. Listed below outlines the information required in the radiogram and can be sent via the Granite State Phone Net at 9p on the 146.94 W1ALE repeater. Also, a 3 hour window will be open Saturday evening June 25th, on the NH ARES HF frequency, 3976 kHz. K1UAF the NH STM will be monitoring for traffic between 7 and 10p.

        7.3.5. Message Origination to Section Manager: 100 bonus points for origination of a formal message to the ARRL Section Manager or Section Emergency Coordinator by your group from its site. You should include the club name, number of participants, Field Day location, and number of ARES operators involved with your station. The message must be transmitted during the Field Day period and a copy of it must be included in your submission in standard ARRL radiogram or no credit will be given. The message must leave or enter the Field Day operation via amateur radio RF.

The Section Manager message is separate from the messages handled in Rule 7.3.6. and may not be claimed for bonus points under that rule. Available to all Classes.

         7.3.6. Message Handling: 10 points for each formal message originated, relayed or received and delivered during the Field Day period, up to a maximum of 100 points (ten messages). Copies of each message must be included with the Field Day report. The message to the ARRL SM or SEC under Rule 7.3.5. does not count towards the total of 10 for this bonus. All messages claimed for bonus points must leave or enter the Field Day operation via amateur radio RF. Available to all Classes.
