|EPC 7th Anniversary 2013|
June 2013 is the seven years anniversary of the European PSK Club (EPC). Throughout June, EPC members will celebrate the occasion by being on air using a wide range of special call signs, each appropriate to their own particular Country but also sharing in the joint theme of the EPC event. The Stations will be easily recognizable and prominent on the bands having the suffix «EPC»!
Stations will be on air as much as possible during the month and will be using various PSK modes of transmission. Of course different bands will also be targeted and whilst we are in the thick of the «Sporadic E Season», it will be a great opportunity for us to work each other on the higher bands as well. The intention of the event from members is not only to highlight the EPC programme but also to encourage other operators onto the air and maybe even to aid them into becoming members of the Biggest Digital Ham Radio Club in the World!
The «EPC Celebration 2013» will also have its own series of Awards. Not only will the stations have the special call signs and QSL cards, they will also have new EPC numbers allocated which again make them eligible for the current award series, as well as the existing EPC numbers of the operators of the stations too.
It would appear that so far we have in excess of a few DXCC countries who have announced their intentions to be on air with the special EPC call signs and it would be so good if we could have more! The list of the announced EPC Club & Special Event Stations which will be operating in honour of the 7th Anniversary of the European PSK Club from 1st to 30th June, 2013 will be available shortly. Please contact Heinz, DK5UR or Yuri, RK3DSW as soon as possible if your EPC club or special event station intends to take part in the event, so that we can add your station to the list on timely basis.
