This month is EME SSB Funtest.
There are some major changes from the announcement in the Dec NL – please see the revised name and rules later in this NL.
The 13 cm contest now starts on 26 Jan (Friday Z) at 1800 and ends on 27 Jan (Saturday Z) at 1800.
The 1296 SSB Funtest starts on 27 Jan (Saturday Z) at 1900 and ends on 28 Jan (Sunday Z) at 1900.
Since this is a “Funtest” no restrictions will be made on the use of the Internet. It should be thought of more like an Activity Weekend then a contest.
The next 70 cm CW Activity Time Period (ATP) will be on 15 Jan 0400–0600 (EU/NA) and 2000–2200 (EU/VK).
The first DUBUS Contest for 2 m and 70 cm is on 24/25 Feb.
F5SE MEMORIAL SSB FUNTEST:
The 13 cm Funtest starts on 26 Jan (Friday Z) at 1800 and ends on the 27 Jan (Saturday Z) at 1800. The 1296 SSB Funtest starts on 27 Jan (Saturday Z) at 1900 and ends on 28 Jan (Sunday Z) at 1900. These events are intended to be fun. You do not need to transmit on SSB to participate. CW to SSB and vice verse exchanges are encouraged and count for points. (Only one QSO between stations is allowed, i.e., you cannot work a station SSB to SSB and SSB to CW for extra points). Scoring is contact points x number of two letter Grid Sectors (IO, JM, FN, EM …) worked. SSB to SSB contacts count as 2 points. SSB to CW (or CW to SSB) count as 1 point. The exchange is your Sector (IO, JM, etc.). Only the 2 sector letters need to be sent and copied by EME. The exchange of signal reports and/or 4 character grids is optional and not required. Operation may be by single or multiple operators from one location. No distinction for scoring will be made. Since this is a “Funtest” not a true contest, no restrictions will be made on the use of the Internet. It should be thought of more like an Activity Weekend then a contest. Logs should be sent to the 432 and Up EME NL by email to email@example.com ASAP after the end of the contests. (All logs for contest awards should have been received within the month following the contest). The top scoring station on each band will receive an attractively framed certificate that will be presented at the next International EME Conference (Holland 2018).
