Hello Operators
For those of you interested in digital modes and especially the new JS8Call app, Jordan KN4CRD is hosting a qso party for JS8Call. He's planned this to coincide with the JOTA event, also scheduled for this weekend in North America and the UK.
Operators working my station over the weekend will receive a free special event qsl card. The catch is to complete the QSO with directed mode, direct or relayed.

You can read his original post below.

Start details:
"Howdy folks!

On October 19-21, there is a Jamboree-on-the-air event happening (JOTA) and it looks many of the stations will be operating JS8. To help drum up some activity, and inspire future ham radio operators, we'll be running the first JS8 QSO Party.

The JS8 QSO Party is not a contest, but a chance to get on the air with JS8 and make some contacts. Whether you like a quick exchange or a long rag-chew, this event is for you. We have a lot of great, patient operators in the group, so the environment should be very welcoming!

The event will last from Friday evening October 19, and run through Sunday evening October 21.

The event is not a contest, so all amateur bandsare open for use. Now might be the time to break out your 30m delta loop or 160m downspout or 10m bed springs!

If you want an "exchange" to send to each about the antenna you're using and how much power. Or, maybe try dialing back the power and go QRP. Or send a weather report. Or talk about your children/grandchildren/pets/car/etc. Or talk about your favorite knot you learned when you were a scout. That's the freedom we have here with JS8. Talk about whatever want!

I hope to see some of y'all on the air! Let me know if I can help in the meantime!


Jordan / KN4CRD"

Space Weather won't be quiet for long this week as we wait for some fast wind from a returning coronal hole that will be entering the Earth-strike-zone in the next couple of days. See what our past dance with this coronal hole last month taught us about what to expect. Learn the details of when the storm will hit and how long it will last, catch up on aurora photos from recent storms, and see what else the Sun has in store this week. The SFI (Solar Flux Index) is staying around 70 which will give us marginal propagation conditions, especially during the daylight hours.
