LVDXA Challenge

2013 was the third year of the LVDXA Challenge.

 

Our goal is to put the club call WVDX on the air. Each member is eligible to use the call from their home station, and

the member who has the highest score using WVDX will be recognized with a major award.

 

Heres the award! (Thanks to Steve WHT and Paul KPK)

 

You can pick any three consecutive months during the period from August 1 to December 31.

The scoring is pretty simple. Its equal to the number of entities worked (based on DXCC rules) multiplied by a factor of either 1, 1.5, 2 or 4:

A station with more than 100 Watts and a multi-element antenna uses a factor of 1.

A station with 100 Watts or less and a multi-element antenna uses a factor of 1.5, as

does a station with more than 100 Watts and a single-element antenna.

A station with both 100 Watts or less and a single element antenna uses a factor of 2

A station with 5 Watts or less is considered QRP and uses a factor of 4 regardless of antenna.

If you use more than one station configuration, you must use the smallest multiplier for all your contacts.

Heres the tally for 2013:

KXB Rick is the winner!
