Don't forget April 29th is the start of the NAHSMS Rally. Below are my plans
for the Rally...
WA5UFH Rally Plans...
I will operate unassisted | multiband | low power.
I hope to hear more CQ's this time on two meters. I recommend assisted
stations taking advantage of the two Random Hour sessions on Saturdays for
During scheduled Random Hours, I will focus on two meters. I plan to use two
meters during the entire two hours on Saturdays if there is activity!
When calling CQ's we will use the Up | Dn offset method. On six meters we
will probably use CQU12 and two meters CQD8. These frequencies could change
due to what activity dictates.
If we end up on a shared frequency and we decode your pings I will always
attempt to tail-end your contact so stick around if you have heard me.
I will listen for CQ's on 50.260 and 144.140 MHz. I have no plans to make
contacts on the calling frequency except for stations not using the off-set
If pings are plentiful I will stick with Random Hour Messages during
contacts. Even when off the calling frequencies I do not plan on using sh
messages unless it appears the contact is in jeopardy. By sticking to
Random Hour messages I can easily slip in a "QSY" request.
During six meter contacts, if I know you have two meters, please listen as I
will request a qsy on six meters. Please listen for my QSY request after RRR
is received or with the RRR or 73 messages. I will send something like <QSY
.123> instead of 73 or XXX RRR .123
If there are stations that need EL19 that meet the distance requirement we
are happy to make a few schedules. Please email me if interested at
There is not much rocket science in my planning. I would be interested in
hearing other strategies; maybe I can steal a point or two. Hi
