EU Stations participate in 10-10 Convention Bonus Program

Castle Craig Inverted_Small

I am pleased to announce that three stations in Germany have been designated Special Contacts for the Castle Craig Net Special during the time of the Convention Bonus Point Program.  You may contact any one of these stations and claim the 100 point Net Bonus for your Castle Craig Plus if you are unable to work the Convention 10 Meter Station or any Connecticut 10-10er during the period of July 9, 2013 to July 15th 2013.

(For the purposed of this special any 10-10 station who is within the borders of the
State Of Connecticut is an authorized station for this bonus).

If you contact one of our Special Contacts please send your log information to the
CM N1API at his listed email address to claim your bonus points.  You only need to make contact with any one of stations to claim the bonus.  We are adding the European stations in order to give those who have little or no propagation to work the US a chance to get the extra points on your Castle Craig Plus.

We have received permission from the Airport Authority to put up a 10 meter station with outside antenna for the period of the convention.

The three stations who have been designated Special Contacts are:

DK7LA     -  Wolf
DJ3LA     -   Marianne
DL8YBM  -   Henry

We hope that you will be able to participate and earn the bonus points for your Castle Craig Plus.

As we prepare for the Convention here in Connecticut, we are preparing the paper work for the Castle Craig Bonus Program for the Convention.  There will also be an announcement concerning this coming soon. Check the Castle Craig News page for the details.

We are ready to start to welcome new members to the chapter in preparation for this event.  If you are interested in joining our certificate program you only need to work an instant qualifier.  Any station that shows 8 points or more on their Castle Craig is an Instant Qualifier and we are eager to have you join.  We would like to sign as many stations up as possible before the convention.  If you are interested please send an email with the call of the station who qualifies you to the CM
N1API.  So avoid the convention rush and join now!

Also if you are trustee of a club station and would like a number for your club's certificate list please send the CM an
email.  We issue Castle Craig Numbers to club stations on request of the trustee or person in charge of operation of the station.  Also if you are the operator of a club station that has a number and you and do not have a Castle Craig number and would like one please contact the CM.  You qualify for a number as the Club's trustee.

We look forward to welcoming as many new members as possible.
