Besides the normal CW & SSB activity on higher bands, there will be a focus on low bands.
VK9C is quite high up on the most wanted list when looking at 80M and 160M activity.
We will pay attention to the difficult parts of the world from Cocos (Keeling) Islands.
NA East Coast beeing almost the “antipode” is probably the most difficult path with very short openings. Special attention will be given. Please respect when we say NA EAST ONLY. Not only along the coastline, but “East”. All others will be worked, when we are through the short openings.
We want to clarify what we mean by “NA EAST COAST”: It is not limited to the coastal states / provinces, but more everything east of the middle of US/Canada.
We have also received requests from South America to pay attention.
Europe and Asia will have greater opportunities. We might focus on Central Asia and Central Russia as well. At those times we may ask Japan to stand by. Europe will be a challenge too. Working eastern europe, and not hearing west or north europe. Please also respect when we ask for West or northern europe.
And, please, do not call on top of stations being worked! This will slow down the qso rate severely.
RTTY will also receive attention.
