SARL 5MHz Activity Weekend

The dates of the 5MHz weekend have been finalised as 17-18 May 2014, held on the two days from 13:00 to 20:00 local time (11:00 - 18:00 UTC).

This is a SARL (South African Radio League) only event as radio amateurs have to register with the SARL to be allowed to operate on the two frequencies.

Some attractive book prizes and a free 2014/2015 SARL membership will be awarded in a lucky draw of all participants who send in logs.

Participation requires reception reports on the KART 5250 kHz beacon which will support WSPR, PSK31 and CW modes.

The Propresearch web page features a tutorial on how to get started on WSPR and links to other interesting articles, including an article which appeared on the Engineer IT website and will feature in the May edition.
