EURAO Party - Summer 2016: sat kick-off

The European Radio Amateurs' Organization announces a new party on the air, this time with the motto: "sat kick-off". Remember this is not a contest, it is just a radio meeting with a few simple 'rules', better to call them recommendations.

Purpose: to start with satellite communications, the AO-85 is suggested. It has one FM channel with downlink in VHF. SWLing is possible and recommended.

Date & time: September 24th and 25th, 2016, Saturday and Sunday, 00:00-24:00 UTC.

Bands & modes: these are the frequencies of AO-85 satellite: uplink 435,180 MHz FM with tone 67,0 Hz and downlink 145,980 MHz FM. Tools: Tracking, Status.

Call: "CQ EURAO Party".

Exchange: because this is a QSO event, not a contest, you can talk about whatever you want, in any language, and for as long as you like. In Sat QSOs shortness and locator exchange is a must. Here are some topic suggestions to get the conversation going: name, city, locator, weather, antennas, rigs, etc.

Also talk about QSL interchange. Tell the truth. Say "no, thanks" if you are not interested in QSL cards. But if you would like to have a memory of your contact, feel free to use our EuroBureauQSL (see below).

Logs: for statistic purposes only, we ask participants to submit their logs to party@eurao.org in ADIF format, where the filename should be your callsign (e.g. EA3RKF.ADI).

There will be no results or league tables, only statistical information about number of QSOs, countries, callsigns, OMs/YLs/Clubs, etc.
