Category: Operating
Published Date Written by ok2cqr

To commemorate our 75th anniversary in May FOC is holding a month-long on-air event featuring at least 45 special FOC-suffix calls.  These will include GB75FOC, a special anniversary call for our club station.  (GC4FOC will be used when operating from Wales, GN4FOC from Northern Ireland, GP4FOC from Guernsey, GS4FOC from Scotland, and GT4FOC from Isle of Man).  A list of who is on the key of each special UK call each day can be found here. There will be many other FOC calls on the air all month from outside the UK, including some exotic locations such as 4X, 5B, 5T, 7Q, A6, HZ, KH6, V3 and VQ9.

 

 

 

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 GB75FOC, GC4FOC, GP4FOC, GS4FOC or GT4FOC = 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 be found on this web site in the “About FOC” section.
