The George S Ladd Radio Club (Golden Gate Chapter) cordially invite all Telephone Pioneers (TelecomPioneers) Amateur Radio Operators in the United States and Canada to participate in contacting as many members in as many chapters as possible, including members of the United States Telephone Pioneer Association. Phone Users, call “CQ Telephone Pioneers”. CW and digital modes, call “CQ TP”.
Each mode is scored separately. Each PHONE and CW/DIGITAL QSO is worth one contact point. Total score for that mode equals the contact points times Chapters worked in that mode. Only one multiplier may be taken for each chapter worked.
You may contact the same station on different bands. You may also contact the same station in your chapter on different bands.
Reminder — these dates are UTC! (Saturday and Sunday evening local time in North America)

The last two digits of the year you became a Telephone Pioneer, (if you do not recall your Telephone Pioneer year, then use the last two digits of the year of your net credited service date) and then the chapter number (USTPA: club or chapter number). For example if you became a Telephone Pioneer in 1988, and are a member of Chapter 138, then the exchange would be “88 138”.
