Easy Points for Field Day

It’s not a contest, I know, I know, but everyone wants to get as many points as they can on Field Day.  Here are some easy points you can rack up without trying hard:

100 points for a formal message to your ARRL Section Manager or Section Emergency Coordinator:  It has to be in the form of a standard ARRL Radiogram and transmitted using the radio (no Internet).  The easy way to do this is send a radiogram using WINLINK to kk4bfn@arrl.net or k4hbn@arrl.net  (7.3.5)

100 points for copying the W1AW Field Day Bulletin.  The schedule for the broadcast is at: http://www.arrl.org/files/file/Field-Day/2020/4_37-2020%20W1AW%20Sked.pdf (7.3.9):  

100 points per transmitter if you are running off of emergency power (if you are operating from your home station that means you are running as a E class not a D class) (7.3.1)

50 points for turning in your entry via the web app at: https://field-day.arrl.org/fdentry.php (7.3.14)

And remember to get your power multiplier.  A 100watt station gets a power multiplier of 2 (7.2.4)

It is a good idea to look over the rules at: http://www.arrl.org/files/file/Field-Day/2020/1_61-2020%20Rules.pdf to see if there are any other rules that might influence how you operate your station.

If you need help/advise during the event, try calling on the 147.030 repeater

So good luck, be safe and have a great time
