Dear Colleagues and Friends

The Portuguese Associação de Radioamadores do Litoral Alentejano - ARLA, invites all hams, domestic and foreign, to participate in a special event in AM: bands are 80, 40, 20, 10, 6 and 2 meters, on Sunday, November 3, 2013.

The AM Emissions are promoted by ARLA and will take place in following
frequencies and times.

3705 kHz ( + - 5 kHz ) - from 08:00 UTC
7143 kHz ( + - 5 kHz ) - from 09:00 UTC
14 270 kHz ( + - 5 kHz ) - from 13:00 to 14:00 UTC
29 075 kHz ( + - 5 kHz ) - 14:00 to 15:00 UTC
51,575.0 MHz ( + - 5 kHz ) - 15:00 to 16:00 UTC
144,575.0 MHz ( + - 5 kHz ) - from 16:00 to 17:00 UTC

(The times shown are only indicative)
This initiative seeks primarily to achieve the following objectives:
a) Provide an opportunity for the use of old equipment and treasured .

b ) To promote practical training and awareness of a form of issue that is falling into disuse, particularly in action dedicated to the training or testing of the Portuguese Amateur Entry level class Licence (Category 3 in Portugal).

c ) provide a homage to the old broadcasting emissions in short wave 
Amplitude Modulated, made from the Portuguese national territory.
The invitation extends to all national and international associations looking to get involved in this training/awareness action activity, including providing a transmission mode that made story, demonstrating the virtues and qualities of how a old equipment sounds, or alerting to the current catastrophic interference that is undermining everyday use emissions telephony A3E in many regions.

The choice of these frequencies , in particular on 6 meter band, is proposed thinking on many Portuguese colleagues with a CEPT Novice Licence ( Portuguese category 2 ) and old Portuguese cat. C, can started an activity in a way that has already made history.

The activity report ( "Log Book " ) is not mandatory but would be rewarding for those who started this event. All log's will be accepted on the following email: cs5arla+dia.do.am(at)gmail.com.

We would like you to divulge the activity by the means at your disposal.
Best Regards from Portugal,
Jorge Santos CT1JIBVice-President of ARLA
