JS8 QSO Party

Saturday, 8 December 2018

JS8 Mode on 30m, 40m, 60m, 80m, 160m, 630m & 2200m


The JS8 QSO Party is a chance to get on the air with JS8 and make some contacts every month. Whether you like a quick exchange or a long rag-chew, this event is for you. We have a lot of great, patient operators in the group, so the environment should be very welcoming!

The event will be held monthly on the Second Saturday of the month. Each month will have a theme or goal.

DECEMBER 2018: Thirty Below
In the northern hemisphere, December is a winter month often accompanied by “freezing” temperatures of 32°F and below (that is…if you’re in a country that still uses imperial measurements and experience more than 1 season per year). So, to mark this special time of year, the December QSO party will be held on or below 30m… that is: 30m, 40m, 60m, 80m, 160m, 630m, 2200m. More bragging rights the lower you go!

Remember, these events are not contests, so all amateur bands are open for use. Now might be the time to break out your 30m delta loop or 60m hamstick or 160m vertical!

Sticking to the theme is nice, but remember that with JS8 we have the freedom of free-text. So, feel free to QSY to a clear frequency, rag chew and/or talk about anything you want.

I hope to see some of y’all on the air. Let me know if I can help in the meantime!
