W6SFM Bug Roundup Event is Coming, Save the Date
Announcing W6SFM's BUG ROUNDUP
Have you seen, the solar flux numbers are up in the 90s!
The Samuel F. Morse Amateur Radio Club, a Sacramento, California based CW enthusiast club wanted a special time to bring bug operators together on the air. In the same spirit as ARRL's Straight Key Night, participants are encouraged to make simple, conversational, “chewing-the-fat” QSOs using their bug type key. This is an opportunity to exercise, share and exhibit your personalized fist. This is NOT a contest. However, there is a very easy and quick requested signup form that can be found at https://w6sfm.com/bug-roundup/. Once you have read the page, and optionally registered for the event simply Call "CQ BR" so folks know you are a Bug Roundup Participant. So lets grab that bug, clean those contacts, and let’er fly! We want to hear that “Banana Boat / Lake Erie Swing" or that commercial KPH/WCC quality fist.
Reserve the date! The event begins on Saturday November 21st (00:00 UTC) and concludes Sunday Nov. 22nd (23:59 UTC), 2020
That's 4:00 PM Friday (Nov. 20th) afternoon until 3:59 PM Pacific Time Sunday (Nov. 22nd Pacific LOCAL Time).
For more information, to register your station, and to help assist in spotting, potentially increasing QSOs, an On-line chat window link can be found near the bottom of Bug Roundup home page located at https://w6sfm.com/bug-roundup/ We hope to hear you all on the air! 73,
