NEWINGSTEAD, Vt. — In a last minute decision designed to encourage a wider variety of amateur radio operating styles and practices, the National Radio Retransmission Legion (NRRL) has announced a new set of “multipliers and bonuses” for Field Day.

tower“We believe these increased scoring opportunities will allow a wider and more diverse group of operators to participate in Field Day,” says Dr. Johnson Longsville, Director of NRRL Contests and Promotional Outreach.

“While some of these may seem ever so slightly out of the norm, the League believes it is important to encourage participation through a variety of means. Recently, we implemented “non petroleum” power bonus, satellite QSO bonuses and several others. This is just a continuation of that on-going review and analysis.”

The new multipliers and bonus points are listed in the table below, along with common nicknames.
