Distance Scoreboard
for PNWVHFS Members

(Only for QSOs made on or after 01/01/2003. At least one station must be a member of PNWVHFS and be located in the PNWVHFS area at time of contact. For purposes of the Distance Scoreboard only, the PNWVHFS area is defined as the states of Washington, Oregon and Idaho and Montana west of the Continental Divide and the province of British Columbia.)

Submit your Society DX record claim by sending an E-mail message to the Society Reflector.
Include the following information:

1. Frequency
2. Your station callsign and 6 character grid locator
3. Other station callsign and 6 character grid locator
4. Emission Mode (CW, SSB or Digital only)
5. Date
6. Distance in Kilometers
7. Propagation mode (Tropo, Tropo PC, Tropo P, Aurora, Auroral E, F2, ES, FAI, EME, Meteor Scatter, Ionospheric Scatter, Rain Scatter, Airplane Scatter or LOS only)
(Tropo=Tropospheric propagation over land. Ground wave contacts will be included in this category; Tropo PC=Tropo along Pacific Coast where a large part of the path is over the Pacific Ocean; Tropo P=Path between West Coast and Hawaii or other non-continental target in the Pacific Ocean; F2 includes contacts with links to F2 via other modes such as ES and Aurora) .

Note: A quick distance and bearing calculator is provided by N0UK here.

Another Note: I might be convinced to make exceptions to items 4 and 7 above on an individual basis. After all, this is for fun. For instance, if you were to contact someone 600 miles away using 1296 MHz Amateur TV, it would certainly be noteworthy. Also, some claims may already have been in place under previous rules and I have elected to keep them for various good reasons of my own.

Final (for now) Note: This page is for members of the Pacific Northwest VHF Society, but it is no longer a function of the Society. If you see something that needs to be corrected or if you have a suggestion, please direct it to me, not to an officer of the Society. Have fun.
73,
Paul,
