This weekend on radio: ARRL EME Contest and EU Sprint SSB

September 30, 2010 By: admin Category: Contesting, EME

This weekend my plan is to participate in ARRL EME Contest .. actually for the first time. I have worked some WSJT EME contacts at OH1AF (also known as OH1F), but never in EME contest. So this should be fun. I checked moon times and the first possible elevation of moon to operate is sometime in the Saturday afternoon. I would like to try also 432 MHz (worked WSJT only on 144 MHz). At our club we have 2x15el yagis and 500w for 2 meters and 2x15el yagis plus 100 watts to 70 cm. ARRL EME contest rules are here.

EU Sprint contest is something I used to operate very often in the past. I think I even won one or two (can’t check because domain has been expired). A speciality of sprint contest is that you need to change frequency after you have made a qso after making CQ. NCJ runs the original sprint contest in the Americas. N6TR has written “The Sprint Surivial Web Page” where you can get help how to run these sprints.
