PLEASE JOIN US on the air for the 2017 PVRC Reunion

The PVRC 2017 Reunion will be in two sessions with activity centered "on the 47's" to celebrate the founding of PVRC in 1947.

PVRC's motto of "Once a member, always a member" shines through and this is an excellent opportunity to meet and greet on the air with members who are now living out of circle.

Dates, Times, and frequencies

Scoring

1 point for each QSO with PVRC member, work each member once per band-mode combination. Moves between bands, especially at slow times, are highly suggested!

Spotting

Spotting of PVRC members is highly encouraged. In fact, self-spotting in this event is encouraged as well! It's amazing the level of non-member activity you can stir up, especially on phone, with a few self spots. The on-the-air activity with nonmembers is an excellent opportunity to explain a little about PVRC as a contesting club to non-members, and point them to the PVRC website if they want more information about contesting or our club.

When spotting PVRC'ers for this reunion, please give a comment to the effect of PVRC Reunion.

Participation Eligibility

Both PVRC Members and Non-Members are welcome to participate.

Non-members can work PVRC members for points and earn award certificates in their own non-member category.
