The European Radio Amateurs' Organization,
together with the Amateur Radio Portable Operators Club,
announce a new party on the air, this time with the motto: "have fun, go portable".
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 portable operation in all its forms (mobile, bike, backpack, on a beach or on a mountaintop),
because it is fun and helpful, especially in emergency situations.
Also it is a good opportunity to meet other hams all over the world and share experiences with them. Of course SWLing is welcome too.
Date & time: June 20th and 21st, 2015, Saturday and Sunday, 00:00-24:00 UTC.
Bands & modes: these are the recommended modes/frequencies (+/-) for portable:
CW: 3.559, 7.029,5, 10.117,5, 14.059 and 18.081,5; SSB: 1.845, 3.791, 7.185,5, 14.342,5, 14.346, 18.117,5, 18.157,5,
21.437,5, 24.977,5 and 28.327,5 MHz.
