Let's all give the winners in 2020 and 2021 our thanks for putting in a great effort for these events! So you can shout it to the rooftops as much as you want! Congratulations!

Here's what the 2022 competition will be - something different! We will have eight contests for King of the Mountain in 2022 and there will be three categories - High Power, Low Power and QRP.

Here's what happened in 2021

2021 was a year-long competition! Yes, something fun to do while we were stuck at home. The year-long competition resulted in the METRO KING OF THE MOUNTAIN and the winner has been announced - K9ZO - who received a nice plaque and certificate. Great going, Ralph! Following each eligible contest, the winner of the KING OF THE HILL was announced. The winners are shown below. The total of the number of QSOs for each qualifying contest was used to determine the ultimate METRO KING OF THE MOUNTAIN.

For scoring in 2021, a person could 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 had an entire year to score. The number of QSOs that were made in each of the qualifying contests accumulated and the final total of QSOs was used to determine the "METRO KING OF THE MOUNTAIN". To keep a level playing field, only single operator entries were eligible.
