EURAO Party - Winter 2024: WRD next century

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

Purpose: the World Radio Day (WRD), February 13, was proclaimed in 2011 by the Member States of UNESCO and adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2012 as an International Day devoted to Radio, a mass media, simple and low cost, specifically suitable to reach remote communities and vulnerable people. This year WRD's motto is: Radio: A century informing, entertaining and educating, shining a broad floodlight on Radio's remarkable past, relevant present and promise of a dynamic future. So let's honor this sector, the radio, of which we are part, listening and contacting other stations around the world, like us.

Date & time: February 9th to 18th, 2024, 00:00-24:00 UTC.

Bands & modes: all modes and frequencies, mainly in HF bands, but not only. EFG.

Call: "CQ World Radio Day 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 party@eurao.org 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.
