Maybe it's just me, but this sounds like a contest more suited for September 14th & 15th 2019 -- UTC dates, that is.  

Or April 1st.

Do you have what it takes to be TOP BULB? Announcing the 2019 Lightbulb
QSO Party.

March 9th, 2019 20:00 UTC through March 10th, 2019 20:00 UTC

That's right!......a QSO party where the participants transmit and receive
signals on CW, Phone, and digital modes using an antenna where a lightbulb
is the main radiating element. TOP BULB honors will be awarded to
participants in 4 categories of operation.


Skeptical? Check out work that has already been done to prove that a
lightbulb-based antenna can be used in QSO's over significant

The Objective of the Lightbulb QSO party is to build and use an antenna
constructed in a manner so that the lightbulb is the main radiating element
and to promote understanding and practical application of antenna matching
concepts that allow a lightbulb to be used as a radiator in two way radio
