Swing Into Spring Net Participation Challenge: Win a free radio!

VX-230We call it our Spring Net Participation Challenge because the more you participate on the Columbia Amateur Radio Club’s (CARC) 2-meter Nets, the more chances you have of winning one of three Vertex Standard 5-watt 2-meter portable radios with AC chargers.

The radios will be awarded from three separate drawing pools. The contest is designed to promote education and interaction between newly licensed hams and seasoned veterans. The contest runs from the first day of spring (3/20/14) through the first day of May (5/01/14). Drawings for the prizes will be conducted at the regular monthly meeting of the CARC on May 5, 2014. Get your name in the hat once with each point that you earn in one or all of the three separate drawings by participating as follows:

Sunday/Wednesday 2m (147.330) Net drawing:

  • Earn one point by checking in
  • Earn one point by staying and giving comments, plus your comments will receive one bonus point if you have been a licensed ham for less than one year.

Thursday New Ham 2m (147.330) Net drawing:

  • Earn one point by checking in
  • Earn one point by staying and giving comments, plus your comments will receive one bonus point if you have been a licensed ham for more than one year.

Back-to-Back (Wednesday/Thursday) bonus drawing:

  • If you check into and stay for comments on the Wednesday and Thursday nets in the same week you will automatically earn 3 points in this bonus drawing, regardless of how long you may have had your license.

Additional rules:

  • All licensed hams are invited to participate, you do not have to be a CARC member to be eligible to win.
  • To increase everyone’s chances for winning a prize, winning names picked in one drawing will automatically become ineligible for the other two drawings, assuring three separate winners.
  • CARC assumes no liability or warranty for the prizes awarded.
  • Winners do not have to be present at the drawing to win a prize.
