This is exactly what happened for the Fall VHF Sprints
this year. A new real-time score-revealing logging
system was released and a "contest within a contest"
was run, using that system.
How'd I do in the 6-meter sprint?
Fourth out of all participants in the sub-contest of
First place in my power category.
First place in my Grid4.
First place in my Region (defined as 3x5 Grid4's).
Look at my screen shot here:
How did I do in the "bigger" contest? I don't know.
I didn't submit my log. I was interested only in my
"sub contest", where I knew the result as soon as the
contest was over. I'm sure others had fun, too. :)
We're now ready to test a version of the logger that
periodically auto "dials and uploads" for dial-up
Internet users. Join the e-newsletter group at the
bottom of the hyperlink to be part of the pre-public
Beta e-newsletter community (and become part of the
alpha testing group).
PS. I included the VHF Contesting list as an fyi.
