I’m probably just not understanding this ARRL International Grid Chase event. Best I can tell, you work anyone, anywhere and you both upload your contact info to LoTW, then your score goes up. Is that about it?

“In the spirit of the Fred Fish Memorial Award, VUCC, DXCC, WAS and WAC, we bring you a world-wide event in which all Radio Amateurs can participate where the goal is to contact (each Month during 2018) as many maidenhead 4-digit grid squares as possible on all amateur bands.”

Hmmm…despite having worked nearly fifty stations already this month, only 12 of them have confirmed our contact. And a grid score of 12 gives me an overall rank of 8399.

Doesn’t seem like riveting action, does it?
