Let's all give the winners in 2020 our thanks for putting in a great effort for these events! Unfortunately, there is no plaque or banner for the winners, only a colorful certificate and, of course, bragging rights. So you can shout it to the rooftops as much as you want! Congratulations!
2021 will be a year-long competition! Yes, something fun to do while we're stuck at home and later when things return to normal. The year-long competition will result in the METRO KING OF THE MOUNTAIN and the winner will be announced after the end of the year and there will be a prize awarded to the winner! Following the eligible contest, the winner of the KING OF THE HILL will be announced. You can keep track of the various contestants on our web page so you can see your standings along with the other Metro members. The total of the number of QSOs for each qualifying contest will be used to determine who will be the ultimate METRO KING OF THE MOUNTAIN.
For scoring in 2021, a person can earn the "King of the Hill" once during the year for the top number of QSOs in a "qualified contest". This is a change from the 2020 rules since we now will have an entire year to score. The number of QSOs that are made in each of the qualifying contests will accumulate and the final total of QSOs will be used to determine the "METRO KING OF THE MOUNTAIN" that will be awarded at the Winterfest dinner, probably in January, 2022. That way you'll keep accumulating QSOs throughout the year toward the final goal. To keep a level playing field, only single operator entries will be eligible.
The "qualifying contests" are listed below.
