Informations and Note


During the CQ WPX SSB Contest I will be active as SO20LP (100W out) Not Assisted !!

E6ET will be active in FT8 mode focus the 20m during the day and 40/60m during the night.

A 40m or 60m station will be active all night, from 7:00 UTC (20:00 local) to 17:00 UTC (6:00 local), in FT8.

Occasionally, during the day, the same station will be activated in 20m FT8

E6ET will be able to manage up to 5 signals simultaneously without the need for the correspondents to set any type of fox & hunt option but simply by calling E6ET as in a normal QSO.

You do not have to set any DXpedition mode option, do not worry if you will see E6ET working on you and other stations simultaneously, send RRR73 and the QSO will be done !!

E6ETは、日中は20m、夜間は40 / 60mに焦点を当てたFT8モードでアクティブになります。

40mまたは60mの駅は、FT8の午前7時(現地時間の20:00)から17:00 UTC(午前6:00まで)の間、毎晩アクティブになります。

時折、昼間に同じ駅が20m FT8
