New Section for 70 Mhz!
With the introduction of the sperimental period of the 70 Mhz band, ARI sezione di Firenze, created a special section dedicated to this band, inside the the 50Mhz Marathon 2012 edition. The main goal is to collect data of all QSOs done within this band by all radioamateurs taking part to the competition. The final database of QSOs made on the 4 meter band will be collected and sent to the Department of Electrical and Information Engineering of the University of L’Aquila, directed by Piero Tognolatti I0KPT, for further analysis on propagation.
All those who wish to participate in this initiative, should send an e-mail containing the CALL, NAME, the LOCATOR, and a description of their equipment at maratona50mhz @ gmail . com. Login credentials will be sent all partecipants, in order to be able to enter their QSO data or upload an ADIFlog file. All contactswill be grouped in the modes Voice, CW and Digital. In order to give a bit of competitive spirit to the event will be drawn an automatic classification based on the total QRB of each participant.
