Afternoon/Evening, Sunday, January 28, 3PM & 7PM Local Time,
7277 kHz in North America, 7177 kHz elsewhere.
While not the greatest band conditions, the afternoon session last
week was better than the evening session! So hopefully, we can try
both times again this week.
Join us as we make contacts from BITX40 to BITX40 on 7.277 MHz
in 40 meters!
This is a worldwide event for BITX40 stations starting at 7pm
in each time zone. To participate, call CQ BITX on Sunday,
starting at 3PM and/or 7PM your local time. The BITX QSO Night
continues through the evening and conditions usually improve
after sunset, so it is worthwhile to participate later in the
Suggested Best Operating Practices:
Work at QRP power levels unless conditions require more power.
Call and listen for CQ BITX on the hour and every quarter hour.
It is helpful if you call CQ BITX with your callsign, name and
Repeat your callsign a number of times during your CQ BITX and
Start a QSO by confirming the callsign, location, name and
signal report of the other operator.
Say the callsign, name and location of the other operator so
others can hear.
If the frequency is busy, avoid long conversations.
After your initial QSO is complete, ask if there are any other
stations who would like to contact.
Report your QSO's, discuss propagation, noise, signal reports,
audio reports, antenna type, etc. in this thread.
This is an undirected, scheduled event. The BITX QSO Night
relies on you to call CQ BITX to initiate contacts with other
stations, so warm up that final and transmit a few calls on
Sunday evening. Talk to you then!
