Further details on the event follow for those interested in how this works:
1. Permission to operate W6OI during this event only is obtained from me (Jerry, N9AC, Trustee for W6OI). Just send me a note volunteering!!
2. Those with permission to operate W6OI club station call for the special event can operate as many or as few hours they desire over the 2-day event. It is up to your schedule. You can operate all modes or just one mode on 10-meters - that again is up to your preference and band conditions.
3. Goal is to have W6OI on the air from every call area and multiple stations in each call area operating at the same time! Usually folks identify themselves with W6OI/x and most likely followed by their call. That way anyone listening knows where it is coming from. You again are free to identify your self as you desire. From my past experiences operating W6OI for the event I can tell you most stations are just as eager to work you as working the W6OI club call. Great way to get on the air, drum up some activity on all modes, and have loads of fun working each other.
4. As for QSL cards and certificates, that is handled thru me. When someone volunteers I send them authorization letter with details. Those giving out W6OI must keep a log and submit that log to me (via email preferred) in any format they choose when the event is over. That way I have logs to confirm anyone seeking a QSL card. We will have special printed cards for each call area once we get the logs back and see what kind of interest there is in receiving a QSL card. But that is handled be me.
5. When you work anyone who is not a 10-10 member just refer them to our web site - http://www.ten-ten.org/. And give them brief details on how to become a member. The website gives them the application and how to submit. Details on this event has been in numerous past Newsletters and is on the website in a couple places.
Hope this gives you more on the Special Event.
I look forward to hearing from more folks out there in volunteering for the event. The more we have the better due to propagation around the country and world.
