- "The only rule change in 2006 involves the GOTA ('Get On The Air')
station bonus-point structure," says ARRL Contest Branch Manager Dan
Henderson, N1ND. "An individual operator may earn a 50-point bonus
for completing 50 QSOs at the GOTA station. They may earn an
additional 50 bonus points when they reach 100 QSOs."
Henderson notes there's a 100-QSO cap for bonus points per individual
GOTA operator, but additional GOTA operators may earn the bonuses for
the club, up to a maximum of 500 GOTA bonus points.
"Additionally, Field Day operations can double their GOTA bonus
points by having a designated GOTA Coach/Mentor supervise the station
whenever it's on the air," Henderson notes. "The GOTA Coach/Mentor
may talk the participants through the QSOs and serve as control
operator, but GOTA participants must make and log all QSOs
This means that if a Field Day group has a GOTA Coach/Mentor, the 50
and 100-point bonuses GOTA operators earn will double to 100 and 200
points respectively, while the maximum GOTA bonus increases to 1000
ARRL Field Day 2006 will be Saturday and Sunday, June 24-25.
