    NOTE: Excellent time to test your Rig on 17 meters. Yes, it is quite open these days. Don’t forget FT8 on 18.100 MHZ. — Layne AE1N

    motto: “discover the WARC bands: 17m“. Remember this is not a contest, it is just a radio meeting with a few simple ‘rules’, better to call them recommendations.

    Purpose: 17m band is only 100 KHz wide (18.068-18.168 MHz) but it is quieter and less noisy than others, mainly on weekends when the big contests are underway. The idea of this party is to promote the band and its calm and peaceful use, ragchewing, having fun and meeting other hams all over the world.

    Date & time: February 17th and 18th, 2018, Saturday and Sunday, 00:00-24:00 UTC.

    Bands & modes: these are the recommended modes/frequencies (+/-) for the 17m band: CW/18.068-18.095, digital/18.095-18.111, and SSB/18.111-18.168 MHz. More detailed info.

    Call: “CQ 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.

    Logs: for statistic purposes only, we ask participants to submit their logs to [email protected] 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.

    Certificate of Participation: for those sending the log and with a minimum of 10% QSOs confirmed.

    This activity is not a contest… It may be welcome hiatus from the ARRL CW DX contest on 10m 15m 20m 40m at the same time!
