Here’s what I sent out in 6 different directions to roughly 1000-2000 hams this morning:
Nothing has changed with 222 Tuesdays. They are still on every Tuesday evening, from roughly 7-10pm. 222Tuesdays are a nationwide activity night, just like they had in the old days. You get on, call CQ, swing beams, look around and see who’s out there. No net control or single area of focus. It’s as good as you help make it. Please spread the word.
If you know of FM-only guys in your area, encourage them to use 223.500 FM simplex. I had at least 5 contacts on 223.500 FM in the 222 sprint last week (out of 37 total Q’s).
Because 222′ers tend to be spread out, some use the free and real-time V/UHF chat at www.on4kst.com. Site owner Alain (ON4KST) was kind enough to create our own IARU Region 2 room for 144-432 MHz and up a few months back. Using this chat gives you a more connected feeling. This is the same chat that hundreds of guys have been enjoying on 6m for years. The chat is for any/all USA/VE hams, and it’s available 7/24/365.
