Try to emphasize SSB Activity on the ODD UTC hours
Moves between bands and modes are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED.
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 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.
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.
Call "CQ PVRC" on CW, and "CQ PVRC Reunion" on SSB.
A PVRC member's exchange is the year you joined PVRC, your name, your state/country, and your callsign when you joined PVRC.
Example QSO between two PVRC members:
WX3B: CQ PVRC DE WX3B WX3B K
WX3B: K4ZW 1998 Jim MD WA2GPQ
K4ZW: WX3B 86 Ken VA KE9A
WX3B: TU WX3B
Note: A non-member only gives his name and state/country for the exchange.
You can use any general purpose logger for this contest. You will have to count up member and non-member QSO's when filling out the score summary form.
A UDC file is available to teach N1MM+ how to handle the PVRC Reunion. It will handle scoring for you automatically. Please download PVRC2017.UDC and save it in your Documents\N1MM Logger+\UserDefinedContests directory. Then quit and restart N1MM+ and you will find PVRC2017 available as a contest log type you can create.
