10:53 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments

The Portuguese Associação de Radioamadores do Litoral Alentejano - ARLA, invites all radio hams, domestic and foreign, to participate in the 5th Edition of National AM Day in Short Wave and VHF; the bands are 80, 40, 20, 10, 6 and 2 meters, on Sunday, November 8, 2015, and starting at 09:00 UTC in 7 146 kHz ( + - 5 kHz ).

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

3 705 kHz (+- 5kHz)
7146 kHz ( + - 5 kHz )
14 270 kHz ( + - 5 kHz )
29 075 kHz ( + - 5 kHz )
51,575.0 MHz ( + - 5 kHz )
144,575.0 MHz ( + - 5 kHz )

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 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@gmail.com .
