Welcome

The EU QRP Foxhunt proudly presents:

"One QSO Challenge" (OQC)

Special for those (unknown) OM's still remaining in their winter sleep please:

(make at least) ONE (cw) QSO (during the week) CHALLENGE

To promote and  encourage  the use of Low Power CW + Home Building, all kind of rigs & antenna's (simple and/or high-tech), all radio amateurs are invited to join us weekly during (NEW) 90 minutes of "CW fun" (even if you can, join us for only a few minutes during this period of time and make just one single QSO, which means that  you earn the "One-QSO-Challenge" trophy for this week! LOL ).

This Party is an Informal radio event and should be considered as a friendly meeting amongst CW Low Power enthusiasts .
No prices to win...  but you will find your "nice" Callsign in our weblog!
When?

Weekly each Sunday and Monday, starting at June 2nd, 2019  ending on September, 30th 2019.

Each Sunday:
From 08:30 UTC till 10:00 UTC (90 minutes ! - feel free to enter and leave when it suits you).
QRG: 10.116 -10.126 kHz  and / or 14060-14070 kHz.

Each Monday:
From 18:30 UTC till 20:00 UTC (90 minutes! - same remark as on Sunday).
QRG:  3560-3570 kHz and or 7030-7040 kHz.

Rules: There are  actually NO rules!
We only ask you:

  1. To adapt your CW speed to the brave OM, who is willing to listen to ur weak sigs.
  2. Home built rigs are highly recommended! "H/B" = fully Home Brewed or commercial kits (built by yourself / by ur friend)  Ex-Military etc...
  3. We still do promote QRP, however using 5 Watt output is no longer mandatory. So, any power level up to max. 25W should be used ( 25W into a small small Magnetloop should be OK for those OM's  without any room/space for a full size Dipole).
  4. Foxes,i.e. stations calling CQ, must  call CQ OQC DE...ur callsgn....
  5. Chaser or Hunter are any station answering a Fox station.
  6. NEW: every station Fox and/or Hunter can upload his/her log to our web logbook: http://foxhunt.uba.be/fox-hunt-log (pse first apply for a password by an informal email to on6wj@skynet.be. Then we'lldo the rest ).
  7. Of course, during the Summer Season all outdoor activities like  /P /MM etc... are highly recommended.
  8. Last commandment: let's have some fun!

Thank you for participating!
