Well today after talking to VA3SIE Martin about the chance of using CF3RCS for some sort of special event during the first two months of the new year..,
After a bit of on air discussions the following have been decided upon:
NOTE: THE EVENT WE PLAN TO OPERATE FOR IS LISTED BELOW- THE DATES HAVE NOT BEEN PUBLISHED FOR 2009 YET SO ACTUAL OPERATING DATES TO BE CONFIRMED…
FYBO (Freeze Your Butt Off) Winter QRP Field Day — CW/SSB, sponsored by the AZ ScQRPions from 1600Z-2400Z tba. Use QRP calling frequencies on HF bands, work stations once per band. Categories are SO, MS, MM, and Novice/Tech — indicate home or field. Exchange: RST, S/P/C, name, power, and temperature in degrees F at operating position. Score: total QSOs × S/P/C (counted only once) × Temperature multiplier ×4 (if field location) ×2 (if alternative pwr) ×2 (if QRP). Temp mult — 65 + ×1, 50-64 ×2, 40-49 ×3, 30-39 ×4, 20-29 ×5, <20 ×6. Add 10,000 points for a QSO with NQ7RP. For more information: www.azscqrpions.org. Logs due 30 days after the contest to firstname.lastname@example.org or John Stevens, K5JS, 21547 North 91st Dr, Peoria AZ 85382.
The plan would be to operate voice with my FT817 and CW with Martin’s KX1.
