Default 2m cw tonight

FISTS 2M BANK HOLIDAY REFRESHER 2019
DESCRIPTION The Refresher is to encourage activity on the 2m band over six 2 hour periods, between Easter Bank Holiday Monday and Spring Bank Holiday Monday with an easy going pace.

Intended for all CW operators, it is aimed specifically for those who haven't operated for a while, feel a little rusty or just need a little confidence boost!!

The idea is to encourage members to take part in an event, where the minimum expectation is to have a basic QSO exchange with other operators.

HOWEVER if members feel they are confident to have a longer in depth QSO, then that's encouraged also.

To add to the fun, points can be claimed for each station worked to create a little healthy, light hearted competition.
DATES and
TIMES (UTC) Monday 22nd April 19:00 - 21:00 (Easter Bank Holiday).

Tuesday 30th April 19:00 - 21:00.

Wednesday 8th May 19:00 - 21:00.

Thursday 16th May 19:00 - 21:00.

Saturday 25th May 14:00 - 16:00.

Monday 27th May 10:00 - 12:00 (Spring Bank Holiday).
FREQUENCIES Recommended 144.025 - 144.100 with centre of activity 144.052.

Please keep clear of the Calling (144.050) and QRP (144.060) centre of activity frequencies by at least 1 kHz.

A good initiative David, it would be nice to hear some CW on 2m, something that rarely happens during the monthly UKACs which seem exclusively SSB. I was out last night (local radio club meeting) but will try and sort something out for the next session.
