The SKCC QSO Party aims to bring together operators with different skill levels in a informal operating event lasting 24 hours. The event starts at 1800 UTC on Saturday, October 6th and runs through Sunday, October 7th, 1800Z.
SKCC members who participate in the QSO Party must use straight keys, sideswipers (cooties), or bugs. Waivers from this policy are possible. For details, see the club’s policy on approved keying devices here. Because this event aims to include newcomers to CW as well as experience brass-pounders, operating speed should be adjusted accordingly.
