    The Razorback Radio Club announces the innaugural Veterans Day QSO Party, 11-12 November 2000 to honor and celebrate the service of the men and women of the armed services of the United States of America.

    Come join the celebration! Meet old friends on the air! Share war stories! Reflect on the tough times and the good times you had in uniform.

    Please click on Read More below....

    PLEASE pass the announcement to as many hams as you can. We are especially targetting veterans, of course, but non-veterans are most welcome. And what better way could there be for all of us to celebrate the honored service of our American veterans!

    Full details are at the Razorback Radio Club web site

    by e-mail:

    or by mail from

    Razorback Radio Club

    1033 Marlboro Road

    Lothian, Maryland 20711

    Date/Times:0001 UTC 11 November 2000 (Saturday) to 2359 UTC 12 November 2000 (Sunday) (Veterans
    Day Weekend)

    Frequencies: Any legal operating frequency on the 160, 80/75, 40, 20, 15, and 10 meter bands is
    authorized, in addition to legal frequencies on any VHF/UHF band. Recommended meeting
    frequencies are those ending with "50" (e.g. 3550, 3950, 7050, 7250, 14050, 14250, etc.)

    Modes: All legal modes.

    Valid Contacts: One contact per station per band/mode combination.

    Exchange: Stations will exchange callsign, signal report, QSO party serial number, and if a
    veteran, the branch of Service in which they served and year they entered military service.
    Non-veterans will exchange only callsign, signal report, and QSO party serial number. For
    example, if N3XNF, a US Air Force veteran who entered the service in 1953 worked KH7DN, a
    non-veteran, the exchange would be "KH7DN this is N3XNF, you are five by nine, number 214,
    Air Force 1953, over." "Roger, QSL number 214 1953. You are five by nine number 316. 73."

    Multipliers: One multiplier for each year of entry in each different Service. Maximum
    approximate theoretical multiplier would be five Services times 65, or approximately 325.

    Scoring: Number of contacts multiplied by multiplier.

    Plaques to top Veteran finishers of each Service (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast
    Guard). Certificates to top finishers (regardless of veteran status or Service affiliation) from each
    state and country.
