Your state or province
There is scoring in both Skinny and Tubby divisions. The weight of your station consists everything except your antenna and feedline. If your station includes your home-based rig, antenna tuner, DC power supply, heavy paddle or bug - obviously not lightweight - simply report 30 lbs. That is the default weight for the Tubby division.
Working the same station on two bands counts as two contacts.
To report your results, send an e-mail no later than Thursday, to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Total number of contacts (all bands) during the sprint.
The weight of your station in pounds.
Soapbox comments, which may include power, equipment, antennas, band conditions, outdoor experiences, and anything else, are encouraged.
We look forward to seeing you in the next Spartan Sprint.
