One week from tonight, on Saturday Feb 4th, the 2nd Midwinter 630m Activity
Event will take place. The highlight of this event will be the opportunity 
for amateurs, throughout North America, to attempt crossband CW contacts with 
amateurs operating on 630m.

Canadian stations will call CQ on announced frequencies within the 630m band 
and listen on individual HF (QSX) frequencies for 

Due to the RTTY and Sprint activities on the same night, some of the QSX 
frequencies have been shifted from those that might normally have been used in 
the past.

There appears to be a lot of growing interest in 630m among topband operators. 
It is hoped that the USA will soon have access to 630m as a ham band. 
There will also be a large turnout of U.S. experimental activity, either in 
beacon mode or in two-way QSO mode with other experimental service 

In past events, several Transcontinental crossband contacts have been 
completed. It is hoped that operating events such as this can serve to 
demonstrate the interesting 
propagation possibilities of this unique part of the spectrum and generate more 
new interest in the 630m band.
