The Ø7Ø Club St Patrick’s Day Contest is just 1 week away -

This is a 1 day, 24 Hour event – Friday evening and Saturday in US.

Work as many stations as possible in the allotted time using PSK31 mode only.


Work each station once per band. (Same station, same band, is a dupe!)

4 Power Categories:

QRP < 5 W
Low < 25 W
Medium < 50 W
High < 100 W (See Rules)

 Call sign, state/province/country (SPC). eg: “W9SMR  FL”

Call“CQ 070 St Pat’s Contest”

 BONUS POINTS: Spell “Erin Go Bragh” using the first letter in the call suffix. See Contest Rules for details.


For Rules and detailsClick Here:  Rules-St Pat's Contest

All entry logs
 must be received within 1 week after the event ends. A Special Upload Link will be available on the PODXS 070 Webpage when the contest starts.


With 6 bands to choose from, you can optimize your luck with propagation. It is helpful to post your intentions to QSY on the Reflector. Also, be sure to use PSKReporter and to Spot calls seen. Go ahead and Self-Spot! Let folks know you are listening. CALL CQ!!


With the added challenge of spelling “Erin Go Bragh”, your progress on the Work The World (WTW) Endorsement is enhanced. And new members will make great strides on the LONP!!


Let’s see if you are one of the Lucky Irish. Go for that Pot ‘O Gold!
