EURAO Party - Winter Special 2018-2019: hunting beacons

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

Purpose: Beacons in amateur radio have, as a main mission, to study and check propagation. The idea of this special party is to explore which beacons you hear in your area and share info with others. This is not a party of ragchewing and meeting other hams. But hunting beacons can be also fun. An exercise of SWLing.

Date & time: from December 22nd, 2018, to January 6th, 2019, 00:00-24:00 UTC.

Bands & modes: any band and mode can be reported, although most beacons are in 10m CW, some of them are in FSK and even in upper bands. Try this listing as a starting point.

Call: "CQ EURAO Party".

Exchange: nothing, just write down the message they send (callsign, locator, city, etc.).

If you want to send a QSL card, you can 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, etc.

Certificate of Participation: for those sending the log.

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 the station you have listened.

Sylvie Delassus, F1PSH, declared persona non grata nuevo

F1PSH Unanimously, the EURAO's Board of Directors declared last month Mrs. Sylvie Delassus, F1PSH, persona non grata.

The reasons: her inappropriate behavior, lack of respect for other members and democratic rules, and especially the public discredit campaign initiated against the EURAO's reputation and integrity.

The consequences: precludes her participation in any event, activity or service provided by EURAO, as well as denying her any representativeness on behalf of EURAO.

About our members...

Mediterraneo DX Club new

MDXC MDXC was founded in 1997 to encourage excellence in amateur radio operations and is based on volunteers efforts without compensation. Its main objective is to promote and support DX operations in countries and islands having limited or no amateur radio activity.
