EURAO Party - Winter 2017: 10m FM

The European Radio Amateurs' Organization announces a new party on the air, this time with the motto: "10m FM". Remember this is not a contest, it is just a radio meeting with a few simple 'rules', better to call them recommendations.

Purpose: to encourage searching information and discovering the benefits and uses of QSOs on 10m FM, not only at local scope, but also with international contacts, if propagation permits. Meeting hams, near you or all over the world, is fun. Of course also SWLing is welcome.

Date & time: February 25th and 26th, 2017, Saturday and Sunday, 00:00-24:00 UTC.

Bands & modes: these are the recommended frequencies (+/-) for 10m FM: simplex worldwide calling channel: 29.600 MHz; repeaters output: 29.620, 29.640, 29.660, and 29.680 MHz, input -100 kHz (CTCSS ?); you can find FM QSOs anywhere above 29 MHz, but 29.300 - 29.510 MHz is reserved for satellites.

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.
