This Weekend In RadioSport | Cosmic Fun

RadioSport Russia | Yuri Gagarin International DX.
Building a successful franchise is a patient endeavor and RadioSport Russia is on the way toward that goal. There is an interesting twist to this event — satellite contacts are permissible. Additionally, there are few locations on the globe actually launching space vehicles and one can log the following…

  1. RT3F — Cosmonaut Training Center.
  2. RS3A — Laboratory of Space Engineering.
  3. R3K — Russian Space Flight Control Center.
  4. UP7Z — Expedition of Kazakhstan amateur radio operators to Soyuz 17 landing site.

RadioSport Asia | Japan International DX.
Fun for the west coast of the United States and an opportunity to pass out needed -Qs to those supporting our RadioSport results.

RadioSport USA | Georgia QSO Party.
Splitting an event into two time periods is an excellent idea and the Georgia QSO Party provides such an opportunity. One can relax in the shack and have time enough for family through the weekend.

SFI = 76 | A-index = 11 | K-index = 2 | Sunspot Count is 23 @ 1211UTC.
