RST-Suffix Special Event Returning in March

01/13/2017

Members of the North Country DX Association (NCDXA) will be on the air during March 2017 from locations in Alaska, Yukon Territory, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Greenland using RST-suffix fixed-station call signs. Expected to be active are KL7RST, VY1RST, VE8RST, VY0RST, and OX7RST. The goal is to promote Amateur Radio in northern North America.

The 2017 event, the second annual RST operation, will feature the addition of OX7RST, as well as more rovers and fixed stations, new QSL cards, and certificates. Activity will be on all modes, 160 through 6 meters, including 30, 17, and 12 meters. SWLs may participate too.

The object is to work or log as many NCDXA RST stations as possible from their various locations. Plans call for operation from a Canadian research station near the North Pole on Ellesmere Island, a diamond mine in Northwest Territories, an Alaskan bush school, and many other locations. Logs will be uploaded to Logbook of The World (LoTW).
