AMxCB: celebrating 30 years of the CB in Spain
<!A HREF="/news/?news=20130802&lang=en" TITLE="english">
Coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the first Citizen Band regulations in Spain,
the weekend of August 2, 3 and 4, 2013, the following SES will be on air:
AM1CB, AM2CB, AM3CB, AM4CB, AM5CB, AM6CB, AM7CB, AM8CB and AM9CB,
that may be found in any mode and band of amateur radio, as a tribute from all those who were initiated in the 11 meters band.
QSL card and Award will be available. The contact is also valid for the Radio Clubs of the World Award, EANET.
On August 2, 1983 came into force the first regulations of CB
that contemplated its original sense: personal communications.
Many of the current radio amateurs started their hobby in the Citizens Band, it is right that now they want to honor and remember those old times
of learning, fun and youth, through the ham bands, as it is done with other events, such as Europe Day "on the air",
from which this activation has taken its procedures.
Therefore, you can participate by simply contacting special stations mentioned or starring your own stellar radio moment.
If you settle for the former, you will find on the air,
throughout the weekend, these special stations using the different bands and more common modes
(phony, CW, digital, etc.). A good way to locate them is through
DX Cluster and/or also consulting the
agenda of the activity.
In addition to making contact (or listening the SWLs) with one or several of the active stations from all
Spanish districts, you should act according to the case:
it is enough to request the QSL card on the website of
using the option "QSL Request", indicating in Manager: EA4RKR. It is not necessary to send your own QSL.
Hams not members from countries where EuroBureauQSL is present:
send your QSL and a SASE to the
entry point of your own country (national tariff).
OMs from other countries: sent a self addressed envelope and 1 IRC to:
FEDI-EA - P.O. Box 3050 - 08200 Sabadell (SPAIN).
Warning: Don't try to send your QSLs via IARU bureaus classic system, they will never get to us because
its member society in Spain (URE) throws them away.
Those contacting with at least 3 special stations of different districts, will be able to
download the special Award
for free from the internet in pdf format.
Those who get 5 districts contacted will reach the Award with distinctive Bronze,
with 7 to Silver and with the all 9 to Gold.
This is an initiative of the federations: Liga Española de Asociaciones C.B. y Radioaficionados,
Federació Catalana de C.B. 27 MHz and Federación Digital EA,
which are grateful for the promotion and collaboration of many associations and individuals in this celebration.
