1 point for third contact with the same station.

100 points, one time only, for working club station WØCQC. The second contact with WØCQC, after half an hour,
is 2 points, while the third contact is worth 1 point (A secret operator from somewhere within Colorado, whose name and call sign will be identified after the 'test, will be operating club station WØCQC throughout the entire sprint...).
