Is it only me or do you also get a satisfying feeling when approaching round numbers?
For example, after the activation I did last Saturday on HB/OW-016, I realized that I reached exactly:
200 unique activations
9000 S2S points
An issue with such round numbers could be that I hesitate to change them … until I think about the nice feeling I get when being out in nature and playing with the radio. This definitely satisfies me more than any round number .
Uniques need to come with a health warning. Although I’m seriously hooked, I cannot honestly recommend them unless you enjoy the planning as much as the execution or have the need for a totally new experience every time you ascend to a summit.
From the perspective of Uniques, round numbers come along from time to time, but they are generally of secondary importance. Having said that, I am getting increasingly keen on achieving Double Goat on Unique summits before I hang my boots up.
…and I thought it was just me that liked round numbers. I am on 493 points, 49 completes and only 1 summit short of my first complete area but there isn’t any way of getting everything on the same activation… unless anyone is activating Tosson Hill??
In Yellow a remarkable result in all parts, numbers of unique summits, total of unique summits worked and and the percentage which can only be 100% ! This is the brilliant result of Bob @G3VXJ
Jan @OK2PDT you miss one to join Bob
Why is this result remarkable?
Look at Mike’s @DJ5AV who only has 2000 unique more but must have made 47135 more QSO’s than Bob and I’m not talking about Manuel who shoots everything that moves 76199, maybe more now !!
Bob my congratulations for these round numbers, for me it is the top for a chaser.
