not exactly "close" but, it's a driveable distance. I spend my summers in the lake Pickwick area,.... I'm in sw Fl for the winters

This sounds like fun. My mobile antenna is tuned to 28.360, where our local club has a net. Maybe I'll go to my favorite hilltop to see who I can contact.

Of course it covers the CW and PSK31 frequencies pretty well, too.

10 Meters may pop open, so it could be great Saturday or Sunday afternoon...

Any particular call or exchange? "CQ Worldwide DX", maybe? Or just "WDX".

Maybe "CQ Worldwidedx.com"? or "CQ W9WDX club"?

Including the "dot com?"



How about "CQ Whiskey Whiskey" - That catches the ear and has a nice ring to it.

Just a thought, but if we want to gain interest in the club, calling "CQ worldwidedx.com Contest" would give a lot more exposure than "CQ W9WDX club" would. Hanging the web address out there on the air will 1.) get their attention 2.) pique their curiosity and 3.) give them an exact address to type in to see what it's all about. One stop shopping. I doubt that just calling CQ to the club call will have listeners scrambling for more info...

I'll be on the club call frequency (is it? lol) 28.455

Boy that's a mouthful... If it were "CQ contest, CQ Whiskey Whiskey, CQ contest" then it sounds well grounded in standard Amateur practice, plus those interested might inquire, but calling "CQ WorldWide DX dot com contest" seems somewhat...I dunno, 'sophomorish' maybe, kinda like tooting your own horn?
- no offense!
