Highest S2S


#21

And add the height of the Squid pole. Never for get the squid pole!


#22

Oh goodness - now we are going to play “My squid pole is bigger than your squid pole” :grinning:

Roll-on Winter Bonus season


#23

I can see a whole raft of pole awards. Most compact, most sections, lightest, lightest with most sections etc. etc.


#24

With the revised awards shop activators will be able to add these claims to their awards.

Tin hat on - blatant advert over :grinning:


#25

Or (perhaps in many cases) - most repaired and still in use …


#26

Mine, which costed me just 14 Euro some years ago and is still in good use, has got several repairs, so I guess it would possibly get pretty high in that ranking, Ed.

I think we need some pole use multipliers. Say, number of activations x number of associations x number of continents.

The pole I’ve just put in a bag has been used in CT3 x2, DM x3, EA8 x5, EI x1, F x3, FL x1, G x2, HB x1, LX x1, OE x1, OK x2, ON x1, PA x1, SP x1 and Europe and Africa.

24 activations x 14 assocs x 2 continents = 672
4581m S2S value
5m pole length

Giving… (4581+5)*672= 3081792pts

Any better scores?

:slight_smile:

My brain hurts…


#29

You forgot to factor in how many times it has collapsed on you.

#30

What is the proper term for an intense, irrational fixation on statistics that have dubious meaning? :grinning:


#31

It is called SOTACD


#32

Politics?

I have certainly made S-2-S QSO’s with fourteeners (over 4,300 meters) with other fourteeners as have K1JD, WG0AT, AD5A, KX0R, N0BCB, to name but a few! - fred KT5X (aka WS0TA)
