For CW ops that take an interest in the medium wave and long wave but are maybe not ready to step into the ring and attempt to get a station on the air below the broadcast band but you have HF capabilities, consider the Canadian 630-meter cross band special event this weekend. The event is Saturday night in North America (Sunday UTC) Several Canadian stations will be on the air, transmitting on 630-meters and listening for amateurs to call them on 40/80/160meters. The list of active stations includes but is not limited to: Station: VA7MM (Mark) CN89 Coquitlam, B.C. Time: 0400Z – 0800Z (Saturday night Nov 13 Z) TX Frequency: 475.0 kHz RX (QSX) Frequency: 1801 kHz / 3574 kHz / 7062 kHz Station: VE7BDQ (John) CN89 Delta, B.C. November 2016 Time: 0300Z – 0700Z (Saturday night Nov 13 Z) TX Frequency: 474.0 kHz RX (QSX) Frequency: 3555 kHz Station: VE7CNF (Toby) CN89 Burnaby, B.C. Time: 0300Z – 0800Z (Saturday night Nov 13 Z) TX Frequency: 476.5 kHz RX (QSX) Frequency: 1836 kHz / 3558 kHz / 7031 kHz Station: VE7SL (Steve) CN88 Mayne Island, B.C. Time: 0200Z – 0700Z (Saturday night Nov 13 Z) TX Frequency: 473.0 kHz RX (QSX) Frequency: 3566 / 7066 kHz Station: VO1NA (Joe) GN37 Torbay, Newfoundland Time: 2130Z – 0130Z (Saturday night Nov 12 Z – Sunday Nov 13 Z) TX Frequency: 477.7 kHz RX (QSX) Frequency: 3562 kHz Station: VE3OT (Mitch) EN92 London, ON. Time: 0000Z – 0400Z (Saturday night Nov 13 Z) TX Frequency: 477.0 kHz RX (QSX) Frequency: 3563 kHz / 7058 kHz Several Part-5 experimental stations, myself included, will be on the air on Saturday night beaconing and making two-way QSO's with other Part-5 experimental stations. Listen for me starting around 2300z on 474.5 kHz CW until the late evening as I call CQ, send bulletins, and hopefully pass NTS-formatted traffic to other experimental stations. Additional details are available on VE7SL's website: http://ve7sl.blogspot.nl/2016/10/novembers-630m-activity-cw-crossband.html as well as http://www.arrl.org/news/reminder-6...ative-special-event-is-sunday-november-13-utc and of course I will have updates and a redux the following day on my website, http://njdtechnologies.net/ .
