ARLB027 REMINDER: W1AW begins scheduled transmissions on 6 meters starting January 2, 2018

Just a reminder that beginning with the 9 AM EST (1400 UTC) fast code practice on Tuesday, January 2, 2018, W1AW will add 6 meters – specifically 50350 kHz – to its regular CW code practice, and CW, digital and phone bulletin transmission schedule.

In addition to providing regularly scheduled transmissions on 6 meters, another goal is to act as a beacon on 6 meters, especially from the Northeast US.

Signal reports will be welcome. A web page that will allow listeners to provide signal reports will be made available after the start date. Reports may also be emailed to W1AW at, w1aw@arrl.org.

ARRL is the national association for Amateur Radio in the US. Founded in 1914 by Hiram Percy Maxim as The American Radio Relay League, ARRL is a noncommercial organization of radio amateurs.
