EURAO Party - Autumn 2014: be digital, explore 30m

The European Radio Amateurs' Organization, together with the 30 Meter Digital Group , announce a new
party on the air, this time with the motto: "be digital, explore 30m".

Remember this is not a contest, it is just a radio meeting with a few simple 'rules', better to call them recommendations. Purpose: to promote this magnificent band, all digital modes, have fun and meet other hams all over the world. Of course also SWLing is welcome.

Date & time: December 20th and 21st, 2014, Saturday and Sunday, 00:00-24:00 UTC.
Bands & modes: these are the recommended modes/frequencies (+/-) for the 30m band: CW/10.100-10.130, SSTV-N/10.132 and 10.144, WSPR/10.1386, JT65/10.138-10.140, BPSK31/10.140-10.142, RTTY/10.142-10.145, ROS/10.144-10.145, FeldHELL/10.144, APRS/10.1491-10.1495 MHz.

Tools: HamSpots, Band Chart.
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. But if you would like to have a memory of your contact, feel free to use our EuroBureauQSL (see below).

Logs: for statistic purposes only, we ask participants to submit their logs to 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.

EuroBureauQSL: you can use it to interchange QSLs even if you are not member. In this case, just send the QSL to the entry point of the country of the station you have contacted.


  1. Hallo Bas, dit lijkt mij een leuke party op 30m. Digimode mogelijkheden genoeg.
    Doe jij hier ook nog aan mee?
    Bedankt voor deze interessante info. 73 Hans, PE1BVQ

    1. Hallo Hans, heel misschien doe ik zaterdag avond mee. De rest van het weekend heb ik geen tijd. 73, Bas

  2. Hallo Bas en Hans, 30 meter is eigenlijk een hele leuke band. Ik werk er ook te weinig. Prima voor digi modes en CW. Zaterdag helaas geen tijd, feestje de XYL is jarig en we hebben 's avonds een feest. Misschien zondag dat ik wat qso's kan maken op 30 meter. 73 Paul

    1. Absoluut waar Paul. 30m is qua condities ook heel algemeen. Overdag en in de nacht zijn er condities. Er is altijd wat te werken. Vooral interessant als de propagatie de komende jaren weer wat minder word. 73, Bas


Thanks for your comment. Bedankt voor je reactie. 73, Bas
