Panama City ARC 2 Meter Repeater Challenge

The purpose of the challenge is to increase utilization of the local repeaters and to have fun.

Note: Always yield to emergency traffic or repeater support of an event like Iron Man.

The net referred to here is the PCARC 2 meter net that meets 7PM on Mondays. You do not have to be a member of Panama City ARC to participate.

A QSO is exchanging pleasantries or other info on any local 2 meter repeater serving Bay County not including net check-ins.

You can be called or they can call you. Only one QSO will count for a particular call per week.

You must have checked in to the Monday net to play the next week. 


  • 1 points for QSO with ham who lives in repeater range and did not check into this weeks net
  • 2 points for QSO with ham who does not live in repeater range and did not check into this weeks net
  • 5 pt bonus for QSO with ham during the week that checks into the next net and that did not check into this weeks net. A late checkin will not count.

Report who you talked to and you total score for the week when we go around for comments.

Checkins and scores will be posted on the website.

There will be a weekly winner.

The weekly winners will go into hat for a drawing at the next PCARC club business meeting. The winner of the draw will get a prize. It may be a gag prize or it maybe something of value. It depends what we have. You have to be present to win. If you are not present we will draw another name.

If any repeater control operator objects we will cease using that repeater. The PCARC club may decide by a vote to end the contest. 

Any issues about the rules contact Greg N4KGL.. 

This is for fun!
