Every participant has a great chance to win a fantastic lottery prize in the HB-OCWA activity for 2020

To mark the 40 th anniversary of the Helvetia Telegraphy Club (HTC) and to inspire amateur radio operators in Switzerland and elsewhere to increase Morse Code activity on the HF bands, we are pleased to invite CW fans around the world to join us during 2020 in a stimulating activity.

We have set up a website dedicated just to this activity: hbcw.ch.

HB-OCWA involves CW contacts among amateur radio operators with Swiss callsigns as well as contacts with hams in other countries. Indeed, radio amateurs from outside Switzerland are very welcome to register and then participate – but in order for them to reach the number of QSOs needed to receive an attractive award certificate and qualify for a prize draw at the end of the program, each 2-way CW contact for this program must include an operator with a Swiss callsign.

Among the lottery prizes to be drawn at the conclusion of our anniversary year, we have transceivers (KX3, KX1, PFR3, ATS4b), Begali paddles (Sculpture, Adventure) and a range of technical books. The full list of prizes is available at  https://hb-ocwa.ch/lotteri.php.

Because our goal is to encourage casual conversations on the air, these contacts must be far more than "599 TU" and must last for at least 10 minutes. Additionally, both stations must log the contact in the online logbook at hbcw.ch for the QSO to count for points. The HB-OCWA program will be in effect for the entire 2020 calendar year (Jan 1 through Dec 31) so as to give participants the most possible time to make as many QSOs as possible that qualify for the program.

Recommended frequencies (kHz): 1835-1840, 3535-3540, 7035-7040, 10125-10130, 14035-14040, 18085-18090, 21035-21040, 24905-24910 and 28035-28040. However, participants are encouraged to focus on the HTC watering hole / Morse Code broadcast frequencies of 3569, 7033 and 14062.

Many thanks for the information to HB9DST/AA1MI.
