Often, when sitting in the Noise Blankers Radio Group clubhouse, with the smell of burnt plastic in the air from leaving the hot soldering iron on the card table, and the sounds of malicious QRM in the DX pileup echoing off the particleboard walls, our minds wander... thinking about what we can do to advance the hobby we love.
This week's idea is courtesy of K5KAC, a nice guy who often seeks out opportunities to stick up for the little guy. In this case, it's a little wavelength. Tiny, in fact.
That's why we are creating "23cm Appreciation Day." It's a big day for a tiny wavelength!
On Monday, December 29, amateur radio operators around the world will pause to think about something they have never thought about before - the 23cm band. It's a band none of us have used, but we sure appreciate it!
Here's how you can get involved:
- Share the graphic at the bottom of this post on your Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and other social media pages and use the hashtag #23cmDay
- Designate a moment on December 29 to think about the neglected 23cm amateur radio band.
We don't have any way to operate in the 23cm band! But we love it! That's the spirit of #23cmDay!
