EURAO Party - Spring 2020: take care of your ham friends

The European Radio Amateurs' Organization announces a new party on the air, this time with the motto: "take care of your ham friends". Remember this is not a contest, it is just (maybe) a radio meeting with a few simple 'rules', better to call them recommendations.

Purpose: How are your ham friends, especially the older ones, these days of COVID-19? Long time without hearing them on the air? Pick up the phone and call them! Encourage them to go on air or whatever. Ask if they need anything. We have to take care of each other. Then log your friend, just to feel good, not for the nice Certificate of Participation you will deserve (hi hi).

Date & time: June 20th and 21st, 2020, Saturday and Sunday, 00:00-24:00 UTC.

Bands & modes: any usual ones.

Call: "CQ EURAO Party".

Exchange: 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 to in ADIF format, 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 ALL 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 of the country of the station you have contacted.
