Portugal: 26 associations rejected other services on 2m nuevo

ANACOM Among these associations, all Portuguese mem­bers of EURAO (TRGM, RCL and ARRLx) signed the initial statement of rejection to the unfortunate French proposal.

This serious threat generated an unusual joint reaction from Portuguese radio amateurs' associations, which met on July 6 to analyze the situation and agree on the next measures to be taken. A commission of 6 radio amateurs (CT1BAT, CT1DBS, CT1DL, CT1END, CT2IXQ and CT1FKF as a sub­sti­tute) was appointed to represent the associations before ANACOM at the meeting held on July 15.

Italy: Meeting at MiSE nuevo

CISAR-MiSE On August 1 the Italian member of EURAO, CISAR, attended the prepara­to­ry meeting at Ministero dello Sviluppo Economico (MiSE) on the next CEPT meeting, the last one before WRC-19.

The results were very positive with explicit support to all the claims of radio amateurs.


EURAO Party - Autumn 2019: claiming for 2m

The European Radio Amateurs' Organization announces a new party on the air, this time with the motto: "claiming for 2m". Remember this is not a contest, it is just a radio meeting with a few simple 'rules', better to call them recommendations.

Purpose: Suddenly the 2m band is in danger. Someone perhaps thought it was a good business to throw away radio amateurs from 144-146 MHz. But a huge reaction worldwide has taken place: activities, signature collection, meetings and letters to the PTTs, etc. EURAO supports all these kinds of actions and wants to contribute to them with this Party, in a more fun way. Go on air and contact everyone!

Date & time: September 28th and 29th, 2019, Saturday and Sunday, 00:00-24:00 UTC.

Bands & modes: these are the recommended modes/frequencies (+/-) for the 2m band: CW/144.050, FT4/144.170, FT8/144.174, SSB/144.300, WSPR/144.489, SSTV/144.500, RTTY/144.600, APRS/144.800, FM/145.500, repeaters/145.600-145.775 (input -600 KHz) and ISS/145.800 MHz. EFG.

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 in the country of the station you have contacted.
