23-on-23: Monday March 23, 2020

Post by VK4CZ » Tue Mar 17, 2020 3:10 pm

Welcome to the March 23-on-23.

Monday 23 March 2020 is the next scheduled 23-on-23!

It will provide an opportunity to practice social distancing, whilst still communicating :lol: , and another opportunity to activate your 1,296MHz and other uWave home or portable station capabilities.
72576327_2867455729931686_3273516801908015104_n.png
Operations are typically conducted as follows:
Phone/CW
Start time: 10:00z / 8:00pm AEST / 9:00pm ADST
QRG: 1,296.100MHz

Digital and 2,403MHz
Start time: 11:00z / 9:00pm AEST
23cm QRG: 1,296.225MHz (Mode JT65)
13cm QRG: 2,403.100MHz USB

Alternative QRGs:
On FM try 1294.0MHz [National voice calling freq]
And don’t forget to call on your local 23cm repeater

If you are in SE VK4, you could try the following repeaters:
VK4RSC 1273.300MHz/1293.300MHz [Sunshine Coast]
VK4RMC 1273.500MHz/1293.500MHz [Brisbane]

These events are designed to develop the level of activity on 23cm and above amateur bands.

Everyone is very welcome to participate. Please do not hesitate to share with others who you know have capability and see if we can continue to grow the numbers of participating stations, by promoting with your local club, on other forums and FB pages. :idea:

Activity is not limited to stations within SE VK4, and the growing contingent from VK2 and even VK5 in the last couple of 23-on-23 activation events.

As is often proven, if the participating stations are unaware of your operation, there is a high likelihood that you won’t be worked. [Quite simple and very logical really!] :clap:

Please take a moment to share advice of your participation here, and on the night log into VKSpotter [https://vkspotter.com/] ‘2m and above’ page and chat, so that attention to 'exploiting' the path can be achieved. :thumbup:

Good luck to everyone.

I will be available tonight 1296.100 MHz & 3398.100 MHz. During this pandemic with people spending more time at home its ideal for amateur radio & safe too! Also looking for contacts outside of 23/23 & FD`s.

73, Trevor, VK4AFL.

Some good activity last night on 1296 MHz worked were VK4CZ, VK4MJF, VK4MIL, VK4DH, VK2MAX & VK2VL. Given the present circumstances why don`t we do this more frequently than once a month e.g. weekends?

Tnx for coming up, 73, Trevor, VK4AFL.
