    Award for working /P stations from your non /P station

    A simple poll.

    Should we have an award for members who work /P stations from their home/club or other non /P station?

    Please vote.

    It might be a good idea to suggest some of the awards to promote the hobby on both side from working from home and portable work to gain the award

    As I see it, there is a specific difference between SOTA for example, where chasing is entirely appropriate IMHO and ARPOC activations.

    SOTA chasing only counts contacts made with stations who are on a SOTA activation. Unless I've fundamentally misunderstood your suggestion, you were suggesting that any /P contact would count. I'd have no issue with a chaser award for contacts with ARPOC activators, once the level of activity warranted it, but I don't believe we are at that point yet, and the focus up to now has been on encouraging folks to get out /P to operate.

    That is my reason for voting no right now, but I think it is something which could be considered in the future as ARPOC grows.

    Some good posts above chaps.

    I'm steering towards an award for working other ARPOC members where both stations have to be ARPOC members and at least one of the stations has to be /P.

    How does that sound as a compromise?

    I'm for anything that increases the chances of working other members :-) I don't think I've worked any other members (except a couple who are local to me).
