HB9Q will be active (144, 432, and 1296) during the final weekend of the
ARRL EME Contest. Our target is to make as many QSOs as possible (CW and
JT65). We will be switching between the modes depending on activity levels.
Please look for us, you do us a big favor if you work us! We appreciate each
- We will call CQ in JT65 on 144.111 ± QRM. Most of the time, however, we
will be searching between 144.080 and 144.160 for stations we have not yet
worked. If you want to work us, call CQ! We will find you, and reply.
- During our JAPAN window we will tx on 144.111 and rx between 144.080
and .100 for any JA calling us (at the same time we rx on 144.111 for any
other caller). Please call us!
- Every now and then we will switch to CW and search for activity and
call the stations we copy.
- Look for us

- Special request to smaller stations: Don't forget to call CQ now and
then (HB9Q will monitor the windows indicated above, HB9Q). 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.
On Friday November 14th from about 21.30z until 23.50z we will be QRV for
skeds and tests on 144 and 432. During this time we are stand-by on the N0UK
and our own 432 chats. Starting November 15th at 00.00z we will not be on
any chat, logger, DXcluster or similar. The only way to contact us will be
We hope to work everyone we can copy on both CW and JT65!
Good luck to all, and enjoy moonbouncing!
