Report on second EmCom Party On The Air

Friday, June 15th, 2007

The second IARU Region One Emcomm Party On The Air for 2007 took place on 5th May last. The AREN HQ station was operated by Conor EI4JN using the call-sign EI1RENE.

Dipoles were used for each band and operating power was limited to 100 Watts as recommended. 14 other Emcomm stations were contacted, 8 on 20m and 6 on 40m.

Logs from all participating stations are currently being collected by Greg Mossop (RAYNET) who will compile the official report for the IARU.

The next party is scheduled for 17 November when new rules and procedures will apply.
