30 Meter Multi Mode Weekend

When:  March 16th and 17th 2019
Where: 10 MHz - 30 Meter Band (10.100 – 10.150)
Objective: To promote experimenting and using different digital modes on the unique 30 Meter Band  
 
Please join in if you have time this weekend.  Those of you who want to participate using the more common modes of CW, FT8, BPSK31, RTTY, we welcome that, but those wanting to try other less used modes please do so and turn your RSID/TXID on to help others know what mode you are transmitting (common modes i.e. BPSK31/RTTY no need for RSID, do use RSID on the less common/exotic modes i.e. QBSK/HELL/MSK/DOMINOEX/THOR/THROB/CONTESTIA/OLIVIA/etc.).  
 
A number of digital mode groups will be participating this weekend so if you have wanted to try out a new digital mode or make some contacts using less common digital modes this weekend might be of interest to you.  There are a number of multi-mode digital software programs so this is also a chance to get on the 30 Meter Band to try them out.  Most of them have RSID/TXID (Reed Solomon Identifier- automatic mode detection and tuning which will help or aid for the less commonly used digital modes so turn on the RSID/TXID).  
 
This event is NOT a contest…no set times…no rules…no exchanges…no logs to send in or to anyone...no winners other than those that participate with casual use of the 30 Meter Band knowing that others with like interests will be on this weekend to experiment, ragchew, DX and have some fun trying different digital modes!

Operating hints for the weekend:
-   Do use RSID (RXID/TXID) for the less common/exotic modes (i.e. Contestia,Olivia,Domino,etc)
-   Do CQ with RSID for more than just a few of CQ’s, don’t expect to have someone to reply on a less common used mode the first few CQ’s…give it a while for others to find you and the mode being used
-   Do use good operating habits – clean signal, lowest wattage to complete the QSO, QRL in common mode first, if band is busy or crowded spread out or use narrower width modes (i.e. if band is busy don’t use OLIVIA 8/500 in the middle of the 30 Meter PSK 10.141 portion of the Band-not good operating habit if the band is busy and you will not make many friends)

-   Do not let not having a dedicated 30 meter antenna stop you from joining in....load up what antenna you do have and give it a go on 30 meters.
-   Do have fun and compare modes, wattage, antennas, etc with other operators that are interested to do the same..most the 30 Meter Digital Operators are not Call,599,73 most want a QSO (even DX) but also keep in mind that for poor band conditions or weak signal work WSJT modes of FT8 (JT65/9) is hard to beat!
-   Do use http://www.HamSpots.net for spotting, announcements of mode, etc.

Re: 30 Meter Multi Mode Weekend - March 16th & 17th 2019

Hi Rick,

Glad to see someone using PSK giving it a go on 30 meters today.  I use to be able to make a 30 meter PSK contact with only 1 or 2 CQs but since FT8 has come along there is little to no PSK activity on 30 meters which is too bad as I like to use PSK and ragchew using PSK.....might take me now 20 to 40 minutes of PSK CQing on 30 meters to drum up a PSK QSO/contact. 

Anyway just so you know that this 30 Meter Multi Mode Weekend is the weekend of March 16th and 17th so coming up next month and hope to see some PSK activity that weekend on 30 meters...would be great to see.

Thanks 
Don KB9UMT

OK, CQed for 10 minutes...nada.  Lots of PSK traces on 40 and 20 so the band should be open.  Also, lots of FT8 lower in the band.  Not my mode.  Maybe later.

Re: Up and running portable in Lake Havasu

Hi Jerry,

Been trying to get the SWR down on the 40 mtr hamstick, but can't seem to get below 3:1.  Tried an old Hustler with a 40 mtr resonator and was not much better.  I think the antenna is to near the van body and it affects the antenna on 40 too much. Looking into mounting it on one of the roof racks to see if that would give better SWR.

Hi Paula,

Looks like you are getting good results with your portable setup.  Makes me thing about purchasing another 40mtr hamstick so I can add that band to my portable operation.
