W4F Special Event

We will operate Station W4F within the General Class portions of HF bands 80, 40, 20, 15; 10 & 6 Meter bands (No WARC bands) as propagation conditions permit.

Description: W4F is to commemorate Florida becoming the 27th state March 3rd 1845.
Date/time: February 27, 2021, 1500 UTC 10 AM EST; End March 6th 2359 UTC, 7 PM EST
Sponsor: Lake Monroe Amateur Radio Society
Bands: 40, 20, in General Class segments
Recommended Frequencies:

We are expecting terrific conditions within the 20 and 40 Meters bands and suggest these approximate frequencies at first:

  • SSB = 7235, 14.285 +- 5 KHz
  • CW = 7050, 14.050 +- 5 KHz
  • FT8 = 7074, 14.074
Mode: CW, SSB, Digital, all within General Class portions of chosen bands. We plan to operate FM & Linear satellite modes too
  • Name
  • State/Province
  • Local Temp
  • FT8 data exchange is only that which is typical of the FT8 mode

All scheduling is done in 2 hour blocks. Please USE the SAME FREQUENCY as the PREVIOUS STATION. This will maintain continuity on the frequency. Try to stay within 5 KHz of the recommended frequencies.

W4F operators may choose their two hour session time, mode and frequency; one mode type on a band segment at a time as defined in the signup page. If you have any questions, coordinate with Stan WA4NFY.

Verification: Single Certificate for one or all contacts with W4F, available from 3830scores.com following this event
