EURAO Party - Autumn 2016: give PSK31 a try

The European Radio Amateurs' Organization announces a new party on the air, this time with the motto: "give PSK31 a try". Remember this is not a contest, it is just a radio meeting with a few simple 'rules', better to call them recommendations.

Purpose: PSK31 (Phase Shift Keying, 31 Baud) is a quite popular digital mode but still needs a little push to encourage curiosity about what it is and how it works. Also discover that it is fun and you can meet other hams all over the world. Of course also SWLing is welcome.

Date & time: December 17th and 18th, 2016, Saturday and Sunday, 00:00-24:00 UTC.

Bands & modes: these are the recommended frequencies (+/-) for PSK31: 1.838, 3.580, 7.070, 10.142, 14.070, 18.100, 21.080, 24.920 and 28.120 MHz.

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. 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.

Certificate of Participation: for those sending the log and with a minimum of 10% QSOs confirmed.

EuroBureauQSL: you can use it to interchange QSLs even if you are not member. In this case, just send the QSL to the entry point in the country of the station you have contacted.
