We have devised a NFARL US Islands contest that will last throughout our 40th Anniversary Year!
This is a year long event similar to the 2016 NPOTA program. It will operate under US Islands Awards Program rules and NFARL's 40th Anniversary Contest rules.
Contest participants will earn points by making contacts with any US Islands Awards Program operation, or by activating a new or existing US Islands island using the club call sign NF4GA. Note that all NF4GA QSOs also count toward USI awards.
The club goal is to activate 40 US Islands using our club call, NF4GA, during our 40th anniversary year. The club already has 50+ operations planned. The official celebration started February 10 and 11 when NF4GA activated FL051S Windley Key and FL060S Upper Matecombe Key. Future plans include:
Your goal, if you elect to participate, will be to accumulate contest points by contacting or activating as many US Islands as you can during calendar year 2017. At the end of the year, club members with the most points will win awards and US Islands patches. The contest is open to all club members.
NFARL will also offer a certificate to non-member chasers who work NF4GA 40 times during 2017.
