November 17, 2011

RADIO ARCALA TEAM GOING FOR CQWW CW BOOTS ON

For the past several years, the discussion about operating 48 hours nonstop has
prompted many initiatives of doing so. Radio Arcala's team doctor, Ville, OH2MM
has specialized in food consumption prior to and during the contest. Several
lectures were given on this vital aspect of contesting.

As CQWW SSB worked out fine with a new claimed overall SOAB European record
(CR2X by OH2UA), approaching 10.000 QSOs, and a Finnish record (OH8X by OH6KZP),
it was discovered that several team members struggled to stay afloat for the
entire 48 hours. Some came close to a knockout.

CQWW CW will now be used semi-scientifically to record those ups and downs and
to seek ways of hanging on and avoiding a meltdown.

OH8X, Northern Finland:
Radio Arcala, OH8X has invited Toivo, ES2RR, a 2010 WRTC medallist, to drive
their contest machine for 48 hours nonstop, seriously, boots on.

CR2X, Azores:
Toni, OH2UA is due for some unexpected undertakings at CR2X, but also determined
to balance the effort needed to stay in the ring for 48 hours.

OH0X, Aland Islands:
Radio Arcala's new associated station, OH0X will be operated by Pekka, OH2TA,
and he is ready to do 48 hours for the first time, with some reservations and
doubts.

TC2X, Asiatic Turkey:
Another new associated station, TC2X manned by Pertti, OH2PM, will try to offer
Turkey (Asiatic) with maximum efficiency, with a modest setup but now with boots
on, in a 48-hour effort.

OH2BH, Southern Finland:
Will be piloted by Pasi, OH2IW who has been sleeping for the past weeks so as
not to need any nap time when the race starts. Can one sleep in advance? Maybe
to some extent, with no boots.

9H9BH, Republic of Malta:
For his 50th straight year in CQWW, Martti, OH2BH will be watching the bedlam
poolside, maybe not boots on, but dipping his toe in deep water to provide a
semi-rare mult.

Why boots on? There's an old Finnish wisdom which holds that going to sleep
boots on may cause headache and mental disorder in the morning. More Finnish
wisdoms after CQWW CW. Until then, good luck in contacting Radio Arcala's
boots-on team.

COMMONWEALTH CONTEST 2012 PRIZE DRAW.

2012 will be the 75th Commonwealth Contest (March 10th and 11th 2012) and to
celebrate this we are going to have a prize draw which every entrant making
more than 75 valid QSOs will be entered. And what a prize for the lucky
winner - a RFSPACE SDR-IQ Software Defined Radio generously donated by
Martin Lynch of ML&S.

The SDR-IQ is a 14-bit software defined radio receiver. It offers a broad
range of spectrum analyzer and demodulation capabilities over the whole
0.0001-30 MHz band. The SDR-IQ can be used as a short wave receiver, as a
spectrum analyser, as a panadaptor and as a precision measuring instrument.

All stations located in one of the Commonwealth Contest Call areas are
eligible for this prize draw - making this a truly Commonwealth event.

What do you have to do to get into the prize draw?
All the entrants to the 2012 Commonwealth Contest who have, after
adjudication, 75 or more valid QSOs will automatically be entered for the
draw. The full rules for the 2012 contest are at www.beru.org.uk and you
are urged to read them carefully. Make sure that you work more than 75
QSOs to leave some margin in case some of your QSOs are disallowed for some
reason.

on the Commonwealth Contest website at http://www.beru.org.uk/ [G3PJT]

sending a QSL card, make sure it's to the following address before December 3,
2011. P.O. BOX 11, Lamma Island, Hong Kong (see QRZ.com). [dx-world.net]
