10-10 Summer QSO Party Kickoff Net
#1

There will be a Castle Craig Chapter Net on Friday July 31st 2015 on the club net frequency of 28.375. The purpose of this net is to kick off the 10-10 Summer QSO Party. I hope that all club members will join in. Even if you do not have a 10-10 number you are worth 1 point to the rest of us who do and are submitting logs. The QSO party runs from 0000 UTC August 1st 2015 to 2359:59 August 2nd 2015.

I would like to ask everyone to help listen for stations that I may not be able to hear.

If you are a paid up 10-10 member your support of the club, and our chapter would be appreciated. Please make as many contacts as you can, and submit your log for credit. Remember to mention that you would like to credit Castle Craig Chapter of 10-10 with your score. Also if you talk to any area 10-10 members before, during or after the contest please remind them that Castle Craig is their local 10-10 chapter and their support would be appreciated if they will be submitting a log.

We will start taking check ins at 7:45 PM local time, (23:45 UTC), and I will be the Net Control. I would like a station to help with relays if needed. The procedure is simple. At 8 PM local time, (0000 UTC Sat. Aug. 1st), we will start from the top of the list, (myself), and I will give my 10-10 information, that is Call, Name, QTH (state), and 10-10 number. The next station will be called and that person will give their information and then stand by. We will proceed to the bottom of the list.

The procedure is then repeated from the top to bottom of the list, except you will call all stations that you heard and QSL their information. If you need a repeat on any information this is the time to ask for it.

Once the last station is called they should have no calls to make because everyone has called them.

I expect that this net should last no more than about 20 minutes.

Please plan to attend and get the Summer 10-10 QSO party off to a rousing start!


-- NEW INFORMATION --

For the local MARC Members, I usually give out the information for W1NRG, but the 10-10 rules state that you may have multiple club stations operators. If any of the club members, (especially if you don't have a 10-10 number and would like to participate to know what it is like to join a 10-10 QSO party), you can take the station for a few hours of operation, (or the whole contest), I just have to know when you are operating so I am not passing the information out at the same time. Please contact me to make arrangements and for any information you may need, you should also email Chris, WA1VXH to let him know that you are going to use the W1NRG Call.
