QSO Guide lines

All QSOs will be uploaded to Clublog DAILY – unless the Internet is down

Please follow these guide lines to work us while we are on KH8

If you cannot hear us, please don’t call. Wait until propagation and conditions favor your QTH for one or more of the Bands / Modes.

Unless you hear otherwise from the Operator, we will ALWAYS be operating in SPLIT MODE throughout the DXpedition.

On FT8 we will ALWAYS run in Fox/Hound mode. Make sure that you have installed WSJT version 2.0.1 or later. DO NOT CALL BELOW 1000 Hz.

Listen to the Operator for RX frequencies (e.g., “up 5 to 10”, or “listening on 7.155”, etc.)

You have two ears and one mouth, so please try to listen more, talk less. Be patient.

During SSB pileups, please use common phonetics, do NOT call continually without listening or call over a station being worked.

During ALL pileups, listen for YOUR call on the comeback. Trust that we have two good ears.

We’re not impressed by those who add to the QRM by constantly calling out of turn.

Please do not Tune Up on any of our TX frequencies or any of our RX slots!

If we ask for “EU” only or “QRP only” or any other specific request, please QRX.

Resist those “insurance” QSOs. We want to maximize unique QSOs, not Dupes.

Whenever possible, we will try to listen in the General portion of the band.

Do not repeat our call sign, we know it.

Remember: We want you in our log. Please help us get you there.
