50 MHz Grid Locator EJ94EA information and operating tips

  • We’ll be emphasizing our operation on this band, it will be a new one for most 6 m operators.
  • The set up consists of a 5 element Yagi, radio and an amplifier.
  • We will be QRV 6m when the band is open.
  • Frequencies maybe changed, depending on local noise/birdies. Split operation will be deployed when needed.
  • Main mode is CW. If band conditions permit, SSB mode will be used to gain a higher QSO rate. Please do not ask for mode changing.
  • Please avoid QSO duplication, give others a chance. Logs will be uploaded twice a day to our site.
  • Long haul contacts are rare and last for a short period. If multi-hop event happens the operator will give it special attention.
  • Grid locator is: . Please, DO NOT send your locator, it is not needed and we won’t log it anyway, it wastes precious time.
  • Whenever it’s possible, and while the band remains closed, the station will be beaconing on the same frequency. If you hear it, feel free to send a text (SMS) saying your grid locator and report only. Tlfn: +
