I am going to restart the 24/7 attempt to fill in those late night slots 04-09 again starting Monday, October 5.
I am in the Central Time Zone, so that will mean a start on local October 4, Sunday at 11:45 in the evening (0445Z).
I guess I put this out too early the first time, so after W9SMR, Stan and W4RTT, Randy, suggested I try it again. . . . . . . .Beginning Monday OCT 5 (which for my time zone means Sunday evening Oct 4)
I would like to invite other 070 Club members, contemplating finishing the 24/7 Endorsement, to join me in an attempt to knock out those middle of the night slots.
I’m hoping so knock out the hour slots 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, and 09
I would plan on operating at 0X45z – 0(X+1)15z each night for a week to knock out two hour slots.
To cover the two hours slots 0400 and 0500, I expect to call on 7.070 MHZ at around 0445z. If the 7.070 band was not the best then a QSY to 3.580 MHZ or another frequency may be required.
Exchanges until 0459z would cover the 0400 slot. Continuing from 0500-0515z, those exchanges would cover the 0500 Slot. Continue this pattern for one week to accommodate all days of the week.
The following week would be similar, using the 0645-0715z time period.
The same the next week using 0845-0915z would complete all days of the week for those middle-of-the-night hour slots.
I live in the central time zone, so for me it means week 1, 11:45 in the evening to just after midnight. To cover 0400Z and 0500Z for Monday, Oct. 5, I would begin at 11:45 local time, the evening of Sunday, Oct. 4 and continue through local midnight to 12:15 local, which would be 0515Z of Oct. 5. Week two is 1:45 to 2:15 AM and week 3 would be 3:45 to 4:15 AM. Not too bad. . .
