NRC/IRCA CPC High School Football & COVID-19 [ SEP. 17, 20 ]

Les Rayburn

The Courtesy Program Committee (CPC) of the National Radio Club and the International Radio Club of America are tracking the status of high school football in all 50 states during the 2020 DX season. 

COVID-19 has impacted sports at all levels. Some states have opted to delay their seasons until later in the fall or even the spring. Many have delayed the start of the season, and some have cancelled. 

This means a lot of unique opportunities for DX’ers this Fall and Winter. You may also want to check individual station websites if you’re targeting a particular station. For example, here in Alabama HSFB is being played, but individual cancellations due to COVID-19 are common.

A school may be forced to forfeit one or two games in a row due to a coronavirus outbreak on their team. This too means a cancellation of the local radio broadcast. 

The CPC hopes this aids DX’ers in their pursuit to log new ones this year.
