EURAO Party - Summer 2023: CQ Walkie-Talkies

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

Purpose: Walkie-Talkies, also known as handheld transceivers, are very popular among young people and beginners and are very useful in case of emergency communications. Do not underestimate this kind of devices and try to contact them or from them, mainly on VHF and UHF bands, either direct or via repeater, via EchoLink, DMR, etc. Have fun and meet other hams all over the world or just local.

Date & time: from June 10th to September 17th, 2023, 00:00-24:00 UTC.

Bands & modes: mainly in FM on VHF and UHF bands, but not only. EFG.

Call: "CQ Walkie-Talkies 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.
