In thinking about how I can maximize my productivity for the upcoming NEQP, I have come up with a question.
CW contacts are worth twice as much as phone contacts. There will probably be more phone operators in the contest than CW ops. What’s the best strategy to switch between CW and phone and make maximum use of the operating time?
For the multi-single stations, I think this decision is VERY important. Given that there are 6 or 10 band changes per clock hour, does a mode change count as a band change?
I suggest that we spend some time this Saturday discussing these ideas, and others that we’ve already hashed over some. These are the things that will boost the club score, and get us to our goal.
