The CW AFS takes place on Sunday 12th from 1400 to 1800UTC with the SSB event six days later on Saturday 18th at the same time. Because twilight occurs about half way through them, propagation at the end can be expected to be nothing like it is at the start. At the start signals from around the UK should be strong and Continentals relatively weak, but by the end it is not unusual for inter-UK propagation to be difficult and for Continentals to be much stronger. Using the 80m band, the exchanges for both events is signal report and serial number.
On 14th January the 432MHz UK Activity Contest runs from 2000 to 2230UTC. Using all modes the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator.
