EURAO Party - Summer 2021: CB QSL Party

The European Radio Amateurs' Organization, supporting the initiative of its member association Federación Digital EA, announces a new party on the air, this time with the motto: "CB QSL Party". Remember this is not a contest, it is just a radio meeting with a few simple 'rules', better to call them recommendations.

Purpose: To facilitate the free exchange of QSL cards between CB users, regardless of their membership association, if any, through the EuroBureauQSL. The only requirement is to use callsigns of the DX type which prefix is according to "CB divisions". Contacts in any activity are valid for this Party. All QSLs can be sent together in a single envelope to the entry point. Non-EURAO members should send a SASE for the response.

Date & time: from June 1st to September 30th, 2021, 00:00-24:00 UTC.

Bands & modes: all modes in the Citizens' Band (CB), also called 11m or 27 MHz band. For more specific info, have a look to the EURAO Frequency Guide (EFG).

Call: "CQ EURAO CB QSL 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 without a minimum of confirmed QSOs.

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.
