Greetings to All Radio Jousters and Jesters,
The various committees of The Boring Amateur Radio Club
effusively thank the Operators who participated in the recently
concluded 2017 Stew Perry TopBand Distance Challenge.
You may visit the web site at http://www.kkn.net/stew/ and
find the link to the 2017 current results. You may be amazed to
watch your score grow as received logs are entered and you are
credited for working certain stations with certain power levels. It
is in the rules, as I'm sure you've assimilated by now.
Below are listed the Plaques and the Radio Stalwarts who
sponsor these plaques. When you meet one of these sponsors
in person be sure to buy them a beverage and tell them what a
Competitor they are...because it is true.

Be sure to participate in the next 160M CW contest sponsored by
CQ Magazine in about one month. I don't think they have the number
of committees that our Club has but they put on an excellent contest.
It uses a different scoring mnemonic but different is good! It would be
a very Boring world if all the ice cream in the available world was
the same flavor!
73 and I remain,
The Boring Amateur Radio Club Committee on TopBand Maintenance
