Don’t forget that for all of 2018, the ARRL is sponsoring an International Grid Chase. Hams all over the globe will be looking to work as many different grid squares as possible. Here in RI, our grid square is FN41. From an ARRL Post:
“The objective of the ARRL International Grid Chase is simple: Work stations in as many grid squares as possible and upload your log data to ARRL’s Logbook of The World. If you are not currently registered with Logbook of The World, this is a good reason to get started. Go to https://lotw.arrl.org/lotw-help/getting-started/. Registration and uploading are free.
Every new grid square contact confirmed through Logbook of The World counts toward your monthly total, so you have an incentive to start the chase as soon as you ring in the New Year.”
