For 2016 K2G operators…
The event starts July 1st at 9am (1300 UTC) and ends July 6th at midnight (July 7th 0400 UTC).
All HF bands will be in play, including the WARC bands, with the exception of 60 meters. Simplex on 2 meters and 6 meters is encouraged.
Since Georgia is very close to other states, it will be harder for these states to contact us so, use of 40m-160m is encouraged.
All modes of operation may be represented – SSB, CW, RTTY, Digital, Etc. I am anticipating that we will have PLENTY of SSB operators. I would encourage those you can to offer as much CW and digital modes ad possible.
Don’t forget to take the time to get your clean sweep as well with your home call sign.
Below is the link for the signup calendar. Please choose some dates/times/and modes that you would like to commit to. You can always pick up more closer to, or even during, the event. If you find that you cannot work a reserved slot, please open it up so that someone else may be able to fill that. After you have made your changes in the schedule, be sure to logout so that the changes may be able to take effect.
Most importantly, HAVE FUN!
