The European Radio Amateurs' Organization
announces a new party on the air, this time with the motto: "catching Christmas stations".
Remember this is not a contest, it is just a radio meeting with a few simple 'rules', better to call them recommendations.
Purpose: The tradition of Santa Claus and the spirit of Christmas have reached the waves in recent
years. At this season some stations with special suffix go on air, like YP2XMAS. Also others with their regular suffix join the event.
Pay attention to their unusual call! And do not miss the opportunity to participate with children.
Date & time: from December 1st to 31st, 2019, 00:00-24:00 UTC.
Bands & modes: all modes and frequencies, mainly in HF bands, but not only.
CQ EURAO Party Ho-Ho-Hooo".
About our members...
GDRG is a sub group of the Galway VHF Group, EI4ALE,
founded in 2017 and devoted to pursuits like emergency communications, field days, radio sport, construction projects and mainly digital radio modes.
GDRG just became member club of EURAO to meet other similar groups interested in the promotion of Digital Radio.
founded in 1959, tries to preserve the authentic ham spirit: friendship and interest in technology, all these in a full democratic environment.
SRC is celebrating its 60 years of existence and thought that becoming member club of EURAO could be of mutual benefit going forward into the future.
