EURAO Party - Summer 2014: give youth a chance

The European Radio Amateurs' Organization announces a new party on the air, this time with the motto: "give youth a chance". Remember this is not a contest, it is just a radio meeting with a few simple 'rules', better to call them recommendations.

Purpose: to promote amateur radio among young people, have fun and meet other hams all over the world. Where regulations permit, licenced radio amateurs are encouraged to invite and supervise young future operators to have their first experience with real radio. Of course also SWLing is welcome.

Date & time: September 20th and 21st, 2014, Saturday and Sunday, 00:00-24:00 UTC.

Bands & modes: these are the recommended frequencies for SSB: 3.740, 7.090, 14.290, 18.140, 21.360, 24.960 and 28.390 MHz.

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.

RSF-RWF: Radioamateurs Without Frontiers new

RSF-RWF RSF-RWF is an NGO created in 1995 by radio amateur volunteers aware of the importance of radiocommunications in any solidarity project involving groups of geographically distant partners.

It all started in the Great Lakes crisis, when some of them were working in Rwanda and Zaire for several NGOs on different projects.

Since then, more than sixty projects were carried out in a dozen of countries, mainly in Africa and South America.

Most of these projects improve communications in such a way that residents receive adequate health care on time, saving many lives.

RSF-RWF is member of FEDI-EA, which itself is member of EURAO. Visit its website to learn how you can help and participate in the projects of this great radio amateur NGO.
