>Field Day is fun but there are not really a lot of operating challenges to it.
>One way to liven things up would be to set some operating goals other than just making the most contacts possible.  
>By giving point bonuses to various operating achievements things could be made a lot more interesting.
>Here are some ideas;
>1 point for each ARRL Section and DX country worked per mode on each band.
>100 bonus points would be awarded for a clean sweep 
>100 bonus points would be awarded for working 100 DX countries
