EURAO Parties: one year meeting hams and enjoying radio

balloons After more than a year of parties on the air, one in each season, EURAO looks back and sees five editions of this kind of activities:

  • Autumn 2013: make new friends with classical phone
  • Winter 2014: promoting HF Digital Voice
  • Spring 2014: CW still alive and kicking
  • Summer 2014: give youth a chance
  • Autumn 2014: be digital, explore 30m

Recently, we found some time to prepare a pretty simple website that shows statistics of past EURAO Parties, mainly because we felt the pressure of received logs (hi hi).
