The Robert J. Collier VE9UNB Memorial Station will participate in the CQ WPX SSB amateur radio contest, March 24-26, 2023.

  • What is an amateur radio contest? It is a leisure activity, as in radiosport. This excellent YouTube(TM) video is an example of a contest, titled VE9UNB in the November 2016 ARRL SSB Sweepstakes (amateur radio contest), by Florence, @themaritimegirl, with Sam.
  • You and a friend may try the 2023 contest for an hour, or more. You may also sign up alone to meet another student. In the past, a few people have told me one hour was not enough and they would have preferred two.
  • To sign up,
    • this read-only online Excel spreadsheet is where to look for free times,
    • is used to email me, Dr. Petersen, with
      • your preferred times,
      • your first name and
      • the first name of the second person, if any;
    • I will write the first names in that spreadsheet. That spreadsheet is readable only by people at UNB.
  • You do not need to be an amateur radio operator, as there will be help from an experienced amateur radio operator in Head Hall, room H305. However, if you want further details, they are at the 2023 VE9UNB CQ WPX SSB Information Page.
