ARRL Frequency Measuring Test is November 13

11/06/2013

What’s the frequency, Kenneth? The annual Frequency Measuring Test (FMT) will take place on November 13 at 10 PM EST (0300 UTC November 14). See page 88 of November 2013 QST for the schedule and full details.

The FMT will employ a “roundtable” format, with all transmitting stations close to the same frequency. The four test signal stations will be K5CM in Oklahoma, W8KSE in Ohio, W6OQI in California and WA6ZTY in California (40 meters only). The test will begin near 7055 kHz, then move to 80 meters near 3598 kHz 30 minutes later, then to 1845 kHz 15 minutes later.

Participants may submit their measurements and soapbox comments (by 0300 UTC on November 17) using the data entry website provided by Bruce Horn, WA7BNM. K5CM’s website has more information about frequency measuring techniques.
