STAYHOME CAMPAIGN REACHES ITS PINNACLE, JUNE 06-07. 2020
CONTEST-LIKE ACTIVITY FROM SATURDAY, 10.00 to SUNDAY, 09.59
PRINT RULES HERE:
In total, more than 30 countries have activated STAYHOME-suffixed stations
to amplify the important message and participate in a large international
showcase of Amateur Radio during the COVID-19 crisis. It is estimated that
some 150 000 messages have been passed through the network around the world.
Oms, PY5EG, one of the project participants, alone, has completed more than
20 000 messages to 181 countries and to all 40 zones. Congratulations! The
latest United Nations activation is; 4U9STAYHOME by Ivo, 9A3A from the UN
base in Brindisi, Italy.
The highlight of the event is a June 06-07, 24-hour radio gathering, when
all STAYHOME stations and the world will gather on the airwaves to wish each
other well and conduct a global message passing in a contest-like framework.
At that point the further validity of the STAYHOME message will be reviewed
with the sincere hope that all countries would be able to begin easing these
heavy restrictions, eventually making this message obsolete.
The project patron is the Foreign Minister of Finland, Pekka Haavisto and it
is endorsed by IARU President Tim Ellam, VE6SH and the United Nations ARC
with multiple STAYHOME activations.
