REMEMBERING THE  EDMUND FITZGERALD  SPECIAL  EVENT

November 6 – 8, 2020

Fitz

The Stillwater Amateur Radio Association (SARA) will be operating to commemorate the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Using the club’s call sign, WØJH (on SSB) and WØF (on CW and FT8 & possibly PSK31),  SARA members will operate from home stations this year, due to the  pandemic. This year marks the 45th anniversary of the ship’s mysterious sinking and our sixteenth year of operating this Special Event.

Join us in Remembering the Edmund Fitzgerald and her crew by making contact with WØJH!

WØJH Operating Schedule 

Friday, Nov. 6  8:00 AM-5:59 PM CST ( 1400 – 2359 UTC)

Saturday, Nov. 7 & Sunday, Nov. 8 7:00 am – 5:59 pm (CST) (1300 – 2359 UTC)

Frequencies of Operation

Midwest/local stations should look for us on the 75m and 40m bands in the early morning and late afternoon.

Don’t forget to request an electronic QSL certificate:

Send an email request to: EdFitzgerald2020@radioham.org with the following information:

No need to include signal reports with your confirmation request, as what is in our log is what will appear on your certificate. We will be pretty much logging in contest mode which would give you a max report if we get you in our log. Our operators will be glad to give you an actual on-air report, but that is not what will likely be in our log. Your request however must include:

* Your Call Sign as well as which or our stations you worked
* Date of QSO (UTC date)
* Time of QSO (UTC time)
* Band or Frequency
* Mode
* The email ADDRESS  where you would like the certificate sent

Certificate requests from SWL stations should include the call sign of at least one station we were in contact with as well as which of our stations they heard during the time you are claiming having heard WØJH or WØF during this event as well as a brief synopsis of the conversation you heard.

—>  Any email received without the above information will be returned for clarification.  <—

No QSL Cards or other postal requests please.

Certificates for valid contacts will be sent as a pdf file to your email address beginning approximately 2 to 3 weeks following conclusion of the event.
