EURAO Party - Spring 2018: discover the WARC bands: 12m

The European Radio Amateurs' Organization announces a new party on the air, this time with the motto: "discover the WARC bands: 12m". Remember this is not a contest, it is just a radio meeting with a few simple 'rules', better to call them recommendations.

Purpose: 12m band is only 100 KHz wide (24.890-24.990 MHz) but it is quieter and less noisy than others, mainly on weekends when the big contests are underway. The idea of this party is to promote the band and its calm and peaceful use, ragchewing, having fun and meeting other hams all over the world. Of course also SWLing is welcome.

Date & time: June 16th and 17th, 2018, Saturday and Sunday, 00:00-24:00 UTC.

Bands & modes: these are the recommended modes/frequencies (+/-) for the 12m band: CW/24.890-24.915, digital/24.915-24.940, and SSB/24.940-24.990 MHz. More detailed info.

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.
