K6MMM is the contest callsign for the Monkey Lover's Radio Consortium,the finest group of simian operators in all of Amateur Radio. The monkeys operate in all modes—CW, SSB, and Digital—although they do have trouble reaching the footswitch from the operating chair. Sometimes they use their tails.

 

These monkeys like to party and CONTEST EXUBERANTLY!

Check out the monkey-mobile:

 

 

Hooo! Hooo! Hooo!

Special thanks to allstations who recognize the "Monkey-Monkey-Monkey"
call and 
give out simian greetings. "Hooo! Hooo! Hooo!" is the official club
salutation, although wild shrieks and chest-pounding is always appreciated.

 

Operating a radio station with a bunch of monkeys is definitely a
challenge: everyone wants to operate at the same time (even with
opposable thumbs, sign-up sheets never seem to work out),
somebody is always trying to climb the tower, and the whole place
becomes a madhouse of screaming and chest-thumping when they
work a new multiplier. Nonetheless, they always have a great time,
and it's much more fun than being packed in that barrel.

Here, you can see the team plan
their strategy before the contest:

                                       Should we start on 10m or 15m?

 

Rich KE1B recruits a new operator:

 

The K6MMM team placed #1 in the 2012 Hawaii QSO Party, in the

non-Hawaii multi-operator category, for the second year in a row.
The gang went bananas, and 
did their celebratory dance!

The monkeys are very proud of their accomplishments, including:

2011 RAC Canada Day: 1st place, Multi/Single non-VE
2011, 2012 Hawaii QSO Party: 1st place, MultiOp, non-Hawaii
2011 ARRL Sweepstakes SSB: 1st place, Multi/Single Pacific Division

2011 All-Asia CW: 1st Place, Multi/Single, North America
2012 7th Area QSO Party: 2nd place, non-7 MultiOp

and more to come!

 

All logs are uploaded to LoTW and eQSL, but you can also get a
special,
Banana-Colored,Three-Monkey QSL card.

It's a must-have for your shack!

 

QSL via Direct, Bureau, eQSL, LoTW, or the Online QSL Request:

 

 

LoTW or OQRS is preferred, but you can also request a card directly:

USA: Send SASE
International: Send SAE and either USD2$, valid US postage, or
1 valid, stamped new IRC (expiration 2017).

Bureau cards will be responded via Bureau
Direct cards without return stamp, $2, or valid new IRC will be responded via Bureau

Bananas and monkey-related pictures are always welcome!

Please be patient; it's hard to get the monkeys to sit down long enough to do QSLs.

 

Feel free to combine QSLs for K6MMM, KE1B, W6NN, ZF2LL, and any of our DXpeditions.
No need for multiple envelopes or stamps/IRCs.


BUREAU CARDS FOR REPEAT CONTACTS
The monkeys do appreciate the many cards they receive via the Bureau. They will reply with a QSL card for all contacts
with new stations,and for repeat contacts on different bands or modes. It is not practical (or especially useful, for awards
or other purposes)to reply with a QSL card for every contact, particularly repeat contacts on bands and modes that have
already been confirmed.

The gang will reply 100% to all cards sent direct, regardless of band or mode.
