The June Bill Windle QSO Party 
The Event: The Bill Windle QSO Party.
Stations call CQ BW 
Duration: 24 hours. 0000Z to 2359Z on Saturday, 23 May, 2009. 


FOC members - To make as many different QSOs as 
possible. VHF bands are included but WARC bands are excluded. Members are 
encouraged to work as many members and non-members as possible to promote 
operating on CW. This also provides an opportunity to hear the operating
of others who may be considered for nomination in the future. 

Non-Members - To contact as many FOC members as possible on all amateur
bands including VHF. However, the WARC bands are excluded. 
Exchange: For FOC members: RST, Name, & FOC Number. 
Non-members: RST & Name 

This is the minimum info to exchange. Everyone is encouraged to have at
least a mini-chat with other stations. 

Frequencies: CW portions of all appropriate bands, from 015 to 040. 
Top Band: Avoid the DX Window, stay below 1825 KHz.

Activity Report: FOC members - Report total QSOs and total FOC QSOs, 
counted once per band. For example: 302/177 would indicate a score where the

first number would be total QSOs, followed by the total FOC member QSOs. 
Non-Members - Report total QSOs with FOC members, counted once per band. 

Awards: Handsome certificates will be awarded to the station on 
each continent reporting the highest number of QSOs. Certificates will be 
awarded in both categories - members and non-members. 

No logs, no verification required; we are only using the honor system.
