Thank you for all the commments and emails for 30m Multi-Mode Weekend. I know most any weekend we pick will be in conflict with other events or contests so we have gone with the majority and pick best we can...just join in if and when you can. Our event is for promoting the 30m band and casual operation anyway so since it is no contest and we don't contest on 30m/WARC anytime is good time to meet up on 30m, use different modes, experiment, ragchew, and meet those with like interests domestic to DX.
Turn your RSID on and use good operating habits....the weekend will be September 25/26 and hope to see you on the band (and yes, I will write something up with more details of the event weekend and where to look for what modes on the band so you all can pass it around to your digital friends be them 30mdg members or non-members).

> We are very close to our membership hitting or going over the 4,000 mark so with that in mind thought maybe we would promote a 30 Meter Weekend, anyone game? I think the last one went well for NA but not so well for EU participation so how about we try another Multi-Mode Weekend with RSID on so we can work a few digital modes we might not normally work, anyone interested? Of course the normal 10.140 to 10.142 areas for PSK also fine if you choose not to venture out to other modes or some CW contacts fb also...but this still might give those that haven't tried other modes a chance to look below < 10.140 or above > 10.142 for Hell, Olivia, Contestia, RTTY, WSPR, JT65, etc again promoting RSID on to announce the mode.
> I'm not sure which weekend would be better but anyone have a particular weekend that they think would be better for this? Sep 11/12? Sep 18/19? Sep 25/26? And if you don't think Multi-Mode Weekend is good then please suggest another...QRP Weekend? Welcome the CIS/Russians Weekend? Open for your suggestions but let's get on the band and have some fun.
