2 METER EUROPEAN PROPAGATION EXPERIMENT ON JULY 20, 2019
A lot is possible at the VHF and that became clear again last week. First a connection with the Longjiang2 and then the first transatlantic connection at 2 meters. That is why department a41 Flevoland wants to investigate this further. On Saturday, July 20, 2019 at 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. (7 p.m. local time) a41 Flevoland is organizing a 2-meter propagation experiment.

Help with this 2 meter propagation experiment
A41 Flevoland wants to collect as much data as possible and calls on all radio amateurs in the Netherlands to participate in this 2 meter propagation experiment. You can easily participate by making connections on the 2 meter band. Clublog has offered to collect the data. For this a41 Flevoland asks you to upload the log with the connections made to Clublog . VERON members can then directly register for the VERON DX Honor Roll .
Purpose of this 2 meter propagation experiment
The aim is to collect as much data as possible about connections made on the 2 meter band in a short period of time. Of course a41 Flevoland hopes that the temperature inversion also wants to cooperate a little at this time. It does not matter in which mode you will work and with whom you connect. Whether this is in CW, FM, SSB, DV or digimode all connections made help in data collection. A41 Flevoland does ask you to respect the IARU tire plan .
No contest, share information and real receipt reports
This experiment is not a competition and, on the contrary, benefits from real receipt reports. So only give 59 if this is also the actual receipt report. Make nice connections and share some more information than 59. This experiment is about collecting as much data as possible and not who can make the most connections or bridge the longest distance. Of course it is important that you enjoy doing this and you may rediscover the VHF.
Other countries are also requested to participate
VERON invites all countries to participate in this experiment and to give it an international character. By getting all up in the air at the same time, this also increases the chance of international connections.

Log in to club log
Don't have access to Clublog yet? That is arranged. By using this link you will be taken directly to the login screen.
Submit log at Clublog
On the Clublog website there is a very clear explanation of how the upload works. Clublog uses logger32 as an example. Look in the manual of your log program for how to create an export ADIF file. You can find also how you can upload the ADIF .
