The K1JT Multi-Op station will be active on 144, 432, and 1296 during
the final weekend of the 2008 ARRL International EME Competition. We
aim to make as many QSOs as possible in both CW and JT65 modes. We will
switch between modes as the activity levels suggest.
Particular operating practices:
144 MHz: When calling CQ in JT65, we are likely to be somewhere around
144.118 ± QRM. Most of the time, however, we will be using S+P
techniques. If you want to work us, call CQ! We will find you, and reply.
During our JA window we will work with a 40 kHz split -- for example, if
you call CQ on 144.080, we will respond on 144.120, and vice-versa.
ALTERNATIVE PROCEDURE FOR JA: Don't forget that you can indicate a reply
frequency in your CQ. For example, if you will look for replies on
144.118, send something like:
CQ 118 JA5ABC PM96
We hope to work everyone we can copy on both CW and JT65!
432 MHz: We will operate in both modes, CW and JT65B, watching
especially frequencies around 432.070 for JT65B activity.
1296 MHz: We will operate in both modes, CW and JT65C, watching
especially frequencies around 1296.070 for JT65C activity.
Special request to smaller stations: Don't forget to call CQ now and
then. You may be surprised at who will answer!
Special request to stations using real-time assistance: Don't forget
that many stations -- including most of the larger ones -- will NOT be
using the loggers. After a QSO, be sure to stay on frequency long
enough to find possible tail-enders calling you.
Good luck to all, and have fun in the contest!
