W6OI AND VE9TEN AND DL0X SPECIAL EVENT

Postby N9AC » Thu Aug 29, 2013 9:46 pm

This years special event to promote ten meter activity, advertise 10-10, and to have fun is coming up on November 23-24. All modes acceptable. See W6OI forum for further details on event.

Lets make this year the best ever! Ten has been up and down for the past few QSO parties. You just have to turn your rig on listen AND by all means transmit. Give out a CQ a few times. Check different modes of operation. Sometimes PSK is working when SSB is dead. Don't give up. And, check different times of the day. Usually mornings and late afternoons works best. But you never know with ten meters!

This is the 10th anniversary for this event. In the past 9-years, we had high of 3500 contacts in 2004 and a mere 23 contacts in 2008. Last year around 900 contacts worldwide were made.

We need volunteers for all US call areas and Canada to operate the club stations of W6OI and VE9TEN. Members desiring to operate W6OI should contact Jerry, N9AC (treismine2@yahoo.com). Members in Canada should contact Rob, VE9KM (rireland@mta.ca) for permission to operate VE9TEN.]

Any questions contact Jerry N9AC, Trustee W6OI.
