The European Radio Amateurs' Organization announces a new party on the air, this time with the motto: "whispering the bands". Remember this is not a contest, it is just a radio meeting with a few simple 'rules', better to call them recommendations.
Purpose: to discover and disseminate the program WSPR (Weak Signal Propagation Reporter), designed by Joe Taylor, K1JT, 1993 Nobel Prize in Physics, which uses a digital mode and very low power to probe propagation paths. Enjoy and be amazed how far you can get. Also SWLing is possible.
Date & time: June 18th and 19th, 2016, Saturday and Sunday, 00:00-24:00 UTC.
Bands & modes: these are the recommended frequencies (+/-) for WSPR: 1.8366, 3.5926, 5.2872, 7.0386, 10.1387, 14.0956, 18.1046, 21.0946, 24.9246, 28.1246 and 50.293 MHz.
"CQ EURAO Party".
because this is a QSO event, not a contest, you can talk about whatever you want, in any language, and for as long as you like. Here are some topic suggestions to get the conversation going: name, city, locator, weather, antennas, rigs, etc. Also talk about QSL interchange. Tell the truth. Say "no, thanks" if you are not interested in QSL cards. But if you would like to have a memory of your contact, feel free to use our EuroBureauQSL (see below).
Logs: for statistic purposes only, we ask participants to submit their logs in ADIF format to email@example.com, where the filename should be your callsign (e.g. EA3RKF.ADI).
There will be no results or league tables, only statistical information about number of QSOs, countries, callsigns, OMs/YLs/Clubs, etc.
Certificate of Participation: for those sending the log and with a minimum of 10% QSOs confirmed.
EuroBureauQSL: you can use it to interchange QSLs even if you are not member. In this case, just send the QSL to the entry point in the country of contacted station.
