NEW YEAR TRADITIONS

PREMISE:
Tired of that same old celebration? Well, not everyone rings in the new year with champagne, balloons and fireworks. One of these other traditions just might be for you. If you find yourself in parts of South America, wear some colored underwear, red if seeking love and yellow for money. In the Philippines, bring your polka dot clothes and enjoy some round fruits to insure prosperity. Eating handfuls of grapes at midnight in Spain should improve your chances for prosperity, while jumping off a chair at midnight in Denmark can banish those bad spirits. For those who enjoy a bit of fire with their celebrations, head to Panama and drive away the bad spirits as you burn a munecos, an effigy of a celebrity or politician, in the bonfire. If you are in Scotland, watch as a parade of village men swing giant blazing fireballs overhead to drive away the bad spirits of the previous year. It is even rumored that, all over the world, in a ritual known as Straight Key Night, folks send odd beeping noises to one another by radio to honor the new year. No matter how you decide to celebrate the new year, the NAQCC wishes you and yours a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017.


TIME FRAME:
The first day of the month 0000Z through the last day of the month 2400Z


RULES:
Just make ALL these words from calls of stations you work subject to the General Challenge Rules. (Any spaces in the phrases should be ignored. For example the challenge phrase "INVERTED V ANTENNA" should be treated as if it is the single word "INVERTEDVANTENNA.")

COLORED UNDERWEAR
POLKA DOT
ROUND FRUIT
HANDFULS OF GRAPES
BLAZING FIREBALL
MUNECOS (There is supposed to be a tilda over the N but we will ignore that.)
JUMP FROM A CHAIR

The 86 total letters contain these 22 different letters : A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P R S T U W Z

You can use each letter in a call TWICE. For example you could use K3WWP for 2 K's, 4 W's, and 2 P's.

Subsequent QSO's with the same station cannot be used for additional letters. For example, no matter how many times you work K3WWP, you can only use his call for 8 of the letters in the words.

See General Rule #5 for more details on what callsign letters can be used.

If you need some help with your alphabet challenge record keeping take a look at our Alphabet Tutorial page for everything from some great pencil & paper methods to fully computerized tools.


AWARDS:
A certificate and Participation Point go to everyone making all the words and submitting their report before the deadline.

A Participation Point goes to everyone making at least 1, but not all the words and submitting their report before the deadline.


PRIZES:
A choice of an item made by master woodworker Gregg WB8LZG as shown on our prizes page here goes to someone selected via a random drawing from all who participate and submit a report for this month's challenge. A person can only win once, then they become ineligible for future drawings.


LOGS:
For your report, list the words you made and the station used for each letter in the word. The number of stations listed must be the same as the number of letters in each word, even though you use the same station for more than one letter as in:

WORD - K3WWP N2OD WA8REI N2OD
NEXT - NF8M W8REI N8XMS K9EYT

(Note how N2OD is listed for both the O and D.)

You may also include comments about the challenge. Please preface any comments you want posted with "SOAPBOX:" so we will know what you want posted and what is private.

Send your results as text in the horizontal format shown above to:

E-mail: pix_email_k7hap (1K) (You must type that address into your email program.)
Subject must read: (your call) NAQCC (month) Challenge
For example: K3WWP NAQCC February Challenge

All entries must be RECEIVED before the 10th of the following month at 2400Z.

Soapbox:
WV8DH: Another nice challenge and fun to do. Thanks for the chance to do it. Best 72/73 from WV.

K6III: I disqualify myself because I ran this challenger QRO 100w.

K1IEE: Another great challenge to start yet another year. Thanks to all 73 Dick

KJ4R: Had some good ragchews this month and fun as always getting all the letters. 73 everyone.

K3WWP: I killed two birds with one stone to finish the challenge. I worked HC2AO for my DX streak (1,421 days now) and for the last 2 Os in the challenge. As always a ton of fun working stations then filling in my paper worksheet watching the needed letters wind down one by one, etc. till all the empty spots on the paper are filled. Then a simple matter of typing them into an email and sending it off. So much enjoyment from such a simple effort that still provided a lot of mental exercise to keep the brain tuned up. Most helpful calls this month were VE100VIMY/VE1 and DR60SAL out of which I got 8 letters each. Glancing at my worksheet, I see it took 22 calls for just about 4 letters per call. Now next month is going to be the real challenge especially for my simple antennas and not so great location. Working DX with mW power at this stage of the sunspot cycle will not be easy. We'll find out who has the great locations and or great antennas. Good luck to those of us who don't.

N8XMS: It was very nice to start off the year with a successfully completed challenge! It was a lot of fun and I hope that this is a good omen for the rest of the year.

K5MP: This my third consecutive Challenge which I have fully completed the required letters. This is beginning to be a lot of fun. Thanks.

K1YAN: A tough month for propagation and when I did finally work someone their call didn't have any letters I needed. Then the bands came back and in 3 days I got the last quarter of the challenge finished.

NF1U: As always a fun way to play QRP. I will say finding the Ltr U's for me was like trying to find Hens Teeth.

KB1M: Finally got the last two letter U's with HI1UD on the 30th.

KC4GIA: My first real effort at the word challenge. Barely made it. What fun!

W8RDG: This was my first Challenge, it was fun. I only got two words, but didn't get out too often. My Station is a HB1B with a HamStick dipole antenna, worked great! Thanks for the challenge, looking forward to others. Ron

VE3DQN: Very little airtime this month as we're preparing our house to put on the market. I thought I'd bagged TU5MH for my final letter in MUNECOS, but alas, my call didn't appear in their logbook.

K8RJW: This was a little tougher. Better luck next time...Bob
