PLEASE JOIN US on the air for the 2018 PVRC Reunion

The PVRC 2018 Reunion will be in three two-hour 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.

Times and Dates

Modes and Center-of-Activity Frequencies

Moves between bands and modes are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED.

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.
