DX MEETING IN ROME & HV0A IN THE SPOTLIGHT 10-11 OCTOBER 2015
IK0FVC, Francesco; OH2BH, Martti and IK0XFD, Giordano, President of the Rome branch of Associazione Radioamatori Italiani (ARI), are organizing a DX summit in the Eternal City, Rome. The historically rich surroundings help to spotlight several timely issues on the way to the first DX University session to be organized in Italy.
During this event, HV0A is to be activated on several bands, as high as permitted by the Solar Flux. The activity will begin on Saturday, 10 October at 1400 UTC and finish with a dinner party at 1800 UTC featuring a talk given by Martti, OH2BH. Further HV0A activity will follow the next day, 11th of October.
Martti’s presentation will highlight the challenges faced in making DXpedition traffic run smoothly, with both ends contributing to a good result. The gathering will focus on areas of improvement which are of interest to DXers and DXpedition operators alike. These areas include a DX University paper tentatively entitled “How To Work Everything With No Pain – Even Europe.” The paper is scheduled to be released shortly. The centerpiece of the summit is the unveiling of a new Q-Code.
The TX3X DXpedition currently underway will be used as a case study and part of the Italian DX summit. HV0A QSLs, as usual, via IK0FVC and also LoTW.
