The 10th annual W6OI – VE9TEN – DL0X (official 10-10 club stations) Special Event will be held starting at 0001Z on 23 Nov and ending at 2400Z on 24 Nov 2013.
The Special Event has designated 10-10 members in all US call areas, Canada, and Germany operating 10-10 official club stations. The purpose of the event is to have fun, keep ten meters active, and to advertise 10-10.
Special Event QSL cards are available for each call area worked and a free certificate will be given to operators that work all US call areas. Stations working VE9TEN or DL0X can count it once as a wild card for a US call area if needed to qualify for the certificate.
Members desiring to operate W6OI in the Special Event should contact Jerry, N9AC (firstname.lastname@example.org). Members in Canada should contact Rob, VE9KM (email@example.com) for permission to operate VE9TEN. In 2012 we had twenty-four members volunteer to operate W6OI. We need volunteers from each call area. PLEASE volunteer soon!! It would be nice to have 4 to 5 volunteers in each call area. Rob and Jerry are waiting to hear from you.
In 2012 over 900 contacts were made mostly on SSB and some on PSK from W6OI. In Canada VE9TEN made 217 contacts, and Henry DL8YBM operating DL0X made 90 contacts from Germany!
