Eastern MA Individual, Club VOTA Competition

Volunteer On The Air logoEastern MA Section Manager Jon McCombie, N1ILZ, writes on the ARRL Members list:

First and foremost, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season and you’re enjoying a productive New Year 2024!

And I hope everyone in the Section had a good time with the ARRL Volunteers On The Air (VOTA) program in 2023, making lots of QSOs and racking up lots of VOTA points! Now that the event is ended, it’s time to wrap up and name the award winning individual and club.

If you haven’t already, upload all your QSOs to LoTW. The one Eastern MA ARRL member with the highest VOTA point total (per the VOTA Leaderboard, https://vota.arrl.org/leaderboard.php?state=MA&submit=Filter+by+State) will receive a softcover copy the of the ARRL-100 Antenna Book, compliments of ARRL. On Jan 10, 2024, I will award the Antenna Book to the EMA-Section ARRL member who has the highest VOTA point total per the VOTA Leaderboard.

The one EMA ARRL-Affiliated club with the highest combined VOTA point total will receive the 6-volume ARRL-100 Handbook, to do with as they please. A club might raffle the Handbook to a member at a meeting, or donate it to a club or public library, or … the club calls it.

To enter the club competition: make sure your club members have uploaded all contact to LoTW; on or after Jan 10, 2024, send an email to n1ilz@arrl.org and attach a spreadsheet listing the callsigns of club members and their claimed VOTA scores. I will confirm VOTA scores from the VOTA Leaderboard, and the winning club will receive the Handbook.
