Gary at the January, 2017 SDXA meeting

The 2017 plaque

Back in September, 2017, during the Salmon Run contest, Gary scored the most points in the category for which the SDXA gives a plaque.

Congratulations to Gary. It’s been a long time since a SDXA member won our plaque. Gary also had the high score for Spokane County. Incidentally, Gary is on the ARRL DXCC Number 1 Honor Roll!

Gary’s statistics:

384 QSOs
58 multipliers
60,182 points

The plaque is given to the highest score satisfying these parameters:

  • Single Operator operation
  • using Low Power
  • Operating in the ARRL EWA Section
  • Mixed mode (two or more modes [phone, CW, & digital], at least 5% of score in the smallest one)

SDXA took 3rd in the club scores with a total of 198,262 points only bested by the Radio Club of Redmond and the South Hill Contest Club.
