LAST MINUTE BREAKING NEWS FROM THE FOLKS OF STAYHOME MOVEMENT [edited].
* STAYHOME RADIO EVENT STARTS ON SATURDAY AT 10:00 UTC ON CW, SSB and FT8
The STAYHOME campaign has finally reached the point where it will sign
the "What a Wonderful World" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RstOpZi54L8)
and meet on the radio to share the challenges of the past two months.
One chapter is closing now with 70+ special event stations singing together
this song from 37 different countries and will say hello to the amateur
radio community worldwide.
* ANOTHER GRAND PRIZE RIGHT HERE
Mr. Jun Hasegawa, the president of YAESU, saw this event as such a
wonderful cause that he decided to add the YAESU top-of-line transceiver
FTdx101D as the grand prize of the event, which will be part of the final
draw, once the dust have finally settled for the event.
Both the 63 sub-category high performers as well as the operators of
the registered STAYHOME stations that greet (contact) a minimum of 500
friends (stations) during the 24 hour event have a chance of winning
this incredible prize!
Everything is ready for you to join! Here is a condensed list with all
