A Connecticut amateur has proposed a nationwide coordinated schedule for making contacts on 2 meters over the 2021 Field Day weekend.
“My name is Nick Kettle KC1DWH. I am a member and secretary of the Fidelity Amateur Radio Club. I am writing to inform area clubs about an initiative I have started regarding activity on 2 meters.
“I participated in the last VHF contest and I found there was a lack of activity in the band, also understanding many things such as propagation are variables of course. I developed several coordinated dates and times over the course of the upcoming Field Day where clubs and hams can get on the air and use 2 meters. This will give an opportunity for especially newer hams who have FM gear to make QSOs but also show them other modes available with their privileges.
“I would appreciate if you could share this. This has been shared across many ham radio group pages across the country on Facebook. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and best of luck to those participating in Field Day. I have attached a jpeg and the PDF attachment of the flyer with the requisite information.”
