Hello From Gibraltar.
ZB2FOC will be used during the month of MAY 2013.
First Class CW Operators’ Club 75th Anniversary On-Air Celebration
Founded in May of 1938, the First Class CW Operators' Club (FOC) promotes good CW operating, activity, friendship and socialising via its worldwide membership of approximately 500. Members are active on all HF bands and the character of the club is best expressed in its motto: "A man should keep his friendship in constant repair" - Samuel Johnson (1755)
To commemorate our 75th anniversary in May FOC is planning a month-longon-air event featuring many special “FOC” suffix calls. These will include G75FOC, (a special anniversary call for our club station), and others from the UK, the USA, and from more exotic locations such as VQ9 and 5T.
Stations will gain points for contacting any FOC member and a beautiful certificate will be presented to stations who reach certain point levels.
15 points = Bronze, 30 points = Silver, 50 points = Gold.
QSO with an FOC member = 1 point
QSO with an FOC member lasting 10 minutes or longer = 3 points
QSO with an FOC suffix station(or M0RSE) = 5 points
QSO with G75FOC = 10 points
One QSO is allowed per station per band. All bands are allowed but QSOs must be CW, of course.
Listen for FOC members calling “CQ FOC 75.” A list of current members can also be found on this web site in the “About FOC” section.
Electronic logs for the FOC 75th Anniversary Award should be submitted to: email@example.com.
QSLs for G75FOC should be sent to G3SWH: www.g3swh.org.uk
