Announcing "Random QSO Hour"
- As Joe pointed out, the next Saturday is the January VHF SS so we will
put a start date of January the 25 for the first "Random QSO Hour". This
is voluntary, for interested / curious operators and will be sponsored
by the WSJTGROUP.
Random QSO Hour:
Every Saturday starting on January 25, 2003 those interested in working
random qso's will call cq's on either 144.140 or 50.270 between 14:00
and 15:00 UTC. Stations calling CQ should announce the frequency they
will be listening on according to the standard accepted practices.
Following the "Random QSO Hour", those who participate are encouraged to
share their results on the "WSJTGROUP" reflector. The more that
participate the more we will all learn about the effectiveness /
usefulness of multiple qso's sharing a small segment of the band. Also,
it should just be fun!
I will program the WSJTGROUP calendar to announce this event early on
Saturday mornings prior to start time. This is flexible, dates / times
etc. can be adjusted when reasons warrant.
Good luck to all who will be working the Jan SS Contest.
