WACOM Marathon

Many WACOM members like to contact far away stations (DX). Many of us, have over the years contacted many of the DX entities called countries. But what about those just starting with the hobby?

CQ Magazine sponsors a "MARATHON" each year, which gives everyone a clean slate every January 1. Each country worked is worth one point. Each CQ zone worked is worth one point. The total score is the sum of zones and countries worked, on any mode and any authorized band. Rules are on their website. Unlike the ARRL DXCC program, no QSL cards are required. http://www.dxmarathon.com

WACOM WILL HAVE A LOCAL MARATHON AS WELL! (with different rules)

    THE WACOM MARATHON
  • Send us your logbook from 1 JAN 15 UTC to 31 DEC 2015 UTC, before Jan 15, 2016.
  • If you have been a Ham for less than 5 years (any power/antenna) you multiply your score by 3X
  • For others, if you DO NOT have an AMP or a BEAM, you multiply your raw score by 2X.
    WACOM will provide a Plaque for
  • The highest score among WACOM members
  • The highest score in WPA Section (Western PA)
  • WACOM Marathon 2015 Certificates will be issued for TOP 5 entries in both categories.
To make it very easy Jim, AD1C, has written a program that will take the ADIF log info from your logging program and create the DX Marathon Score Sheet directly. Then send it into both WACOM and the CQ MARATHON!! http://software.ad1c.us/marathon

During the year, assistance will be provided on the Elmer's Net for getting your rig talking to your radio. Just type in the callsign, it's more fun when they talk together logging the time, frequency and mode, just by pushing the enter key. This will be more fun than the WACKY 100 contest 4 years ago.
