Hi Guys. Throughout New Years Eve / New Years Day, please be aware that GB3OA may get connected to various conferences / reflectors as the New Year is seen in across the globe. Feel free to join in the conversations, but it’s essential you keep your overs short since many hundreds of nodes could possibly be connected simultaneously. Short overs means less than 60 seconds, Remember, be brief! If you wish to have a local QSO then GB3OA must be disconnected from the reflector using DTMF 73 no matter how short the local QSO is.
The first place that has an IRLP node to celebrate the coming of 2016, at UTC + 13, is New Zealand, so that will be 11.00 hours in the UK (Chatham Island at UTC + 13.45 is the first to celebrate but has no IRLP node).
Happy New Year to all users of GB3OA!
