Este es un ejemplo de lo que no debe de suceder en el cluster.

ON30ON (Oscar November Thirty Oscar November)

The ON Contest was first organized in 1980 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Kingdom of Belgium.

Since then, this short period contest lasting four hours on a local Sunday morning has become a popular yearly event generating lots of activity on the 80m, 6m and 2m bands.

To commemorate its 30th edition, the Mechelen (MCL) division of the UBA is activating a special event callsign


ON30ON (Oscar November Thirty Oscar November)

To celebrate the event the MCL division of the Belgian IARU Society UBA issues a commemorative award.

ZL8X, el fin del trafico de QSL convencional

Imagen
A finales de noviembre hay anunciada una operación desde la isla Kermadec, con el indicativo ZL8X. Disponen de una web, y al visitarla he buscado la QSL info. Me he encontrado un caso curioso, pone que la QSL es OQRS.

Explican lo que es, Online Qsl Request System, algo así como Solicitud de QSL Online (SQOL).
No quieren nuestras QSL, cosa que me parece bastante lógico, para que luego las tiren, mejor ahorrarnos ese envío.
Nos solicitan que enviemos por e-mail, supongo, los datos de nuestro QSO, nuestro indicativo e e-mail si la queremos vía bureau.
De quererla directa, y esta es la cuestión, no piden lo anterior mas nuestra dirección postal mas una donación mínima de 3 €.
Puede parecer exagerado, pero si uno hace cuentas de lo que le cuesta hacer un envío, estamos hablando de al menos 1,5 € de gasto + el $ ó IRC, que totalizan prácticamente los 3 € que nos piden por la QSL directa.
Lo que no esta muy claro es el tema de si tienes múltiples QSO's, aunque si que pone card(s) ¿Hay que envi…

AZORES POISED TO HIT HARD AT ARRL SSB DX CONTEST

AZORES POISED TO HIT HARD AT ARRL SSB DX CONTEST

The group out of Radio Arcala and their associates will put the Azores on
the air on a variety of bands for the ARRL SSB weekend. CU2CE, CU2DX, OH2BH
and OH8NC will be at the controls to provide you with an elusive Azores
multiplier under a callsign not determined yet. Please update your CTY files
to take note of the fact that the CR2 prefix along with the traditional CU2
will represent this Azorean outpost, the westernmost point of Europe, one
hour behind UTC time.

Soon Radio Arcala is scheduled to hold their Annual Meeting in the Azores
and may activate several stations for the WPX SSB contest. The meeting is
expected to have on its agenda the important issue of broadening the scope
of the original Arcalians and their mission by inviting several
international partners to join the radio operator team and to enter into
Radio Arcala technology partnerships.
