Come join the fun. We will have stations active on all Gulf Coast States for this
event where we remember the people on the Gulf Coast who were affected by hurricanes
over the past years. Some were just a breeze with some rain thrown in but others
were monsters doing considerable damage and loss of life. Historically ham radio
has paid a large part in the preparation for, reports during, and recovery processes
following these storms.
Participation can be on any mode except for FT-8 which does not lend itself to this
event as we want people to be able to discuss their experiences with these storms
in the past, not just make contest style QSOs.
Make contact with 3 or more stations and qualify for a certificate and work all 6
for the CLEAN SWEEP! Stations will be W4F for Florida, W4A for Alabama, W5M for Mississippi,
W5L for Louisiana, W5T for Texas, notice a pattern here, and K5H as a memorial station
for Hurricane Katrina.
AG5Z will handle all certificates as well as QSL replies. QSLs must have an SASE
unless you are applying for a certificate. The $7.00 certificate fee will cover the
cost of printing the certificates and cards as well as shipping the certificate and
your QSL cards to you. You will need to send separate QSL cards to each station as
I will be sending them to the station that you worked once I have processed them.
