Bonus Points for the Fall 2018 CX
Bonus #1 2000 points for qualifying a crystal controlled transmitter.
Bonus #2 2000 Points for qualifying a home brew transmitter (crystal or VFO).
For the 1st bonus, any crystal controlled transmitter can be used -- HB, kit, store bought etc -- as long
as you make the 3 contacts using crystal control.
For the 2nd bonus, the home brew can not be a kit. For example, an HW-16 or Johnson Valiant do not
count. Yes, Valiants came in kits as well as assembled.
