This just appeared on the MoonNet list and I thought that if any of you
have decent setups on 1296 you might like to try and hear something
coming back off Oscar 1 :)
I'm certainly going to try!
-------- Original Message --------
In order to supplement the EoA activity on the following days there
will be a 'Net - check in'
fun event conducted at the times indicated below. This week Friday
Saturday and Sunday.
The main mode will be SSB but anybody on CW is also encouraged to join.
There will be many very loud stations (big goo) which should be
readable on modest antennae.
The frequency chosen is 1296.025 .. your transmit frequency
I (VK3UM) will run the OC > EU "skeds" and Joe or Jay (K1RQG K5JL)
will run the NA > OC
The EU > NA may be run by PI9CAM or HB9MOON .. someone will do it for sure.
There will be a heap of special calls in use as well.
W1M = K1RQG
W5J = K5JL
K5J = K5SO
N0O = N0OY
W1O = K2DH
K0C = K0YW
so save the totally predictable debate of 'is that a new initial'
? until later !!!
Its going to be hard enough to understand the accents without
changing call signs as well !!
NA = NORTH AMERICA
OC = OCEANIA
EU = EUROPE
NA > OC STARTING JUNE 26 AT 0100Z
OC > EU STARTING JUNE 26 AT 0930Z
EU > NA STARTING JUNE 26 AT 1900Z
NA > OC STARTING JUNE 27 AT 0130Z
OC > EU STARTING JUNE 27 AT 1100Z
EU > NA STARTING JUNE 27 AT 2000Z
NA > OC STARTING JUNE 28 AT 0200Z
OC > EU STARTING JUNE 28 AT 1200Z
EU > NA STARTING JUNE 28 AT 2030Z
Come on or just listen. It is intended as a fun activity to support
EoA . There will be many
big guns on and you could be very surprised at what you will hear.
