Air Force MARS (AFMARS) 75th Anniversary Event

November 5, 2023 @ 12:00 am - November 11, 2023 @ 11:30 pm

AFMARS is celebrating its 75th anniversary by reaching out to the
Amateur Radio community for a special event. The event will kick-off on
November 5 at 0000 Zulu and end on November 11 at 2359 Zulu.
Representative stations located in each of the ten geographical AFMARS
Communications Wings will be on-the-air calling CQ and identifying
themselves as special event station callsigns. In addition, K4AF, the
MARS station located at the Pentagon, will be on the air as a part of
this event!

This event will take place on all HF bands (except 60m) using common
modes, including SSB, CW, and digital. The technician part of the 10m
band WILL be active for this event. Participants should monitor
frequencies and respond to QSO calls. Stations that receive an
acknowledgment and authentication code will be registered in the
official log.

Upon completion of the event, those stations that have been officially
logged in all ten Communication Wings will receive a QSL document.
Stations that make contact with the Pentagon MARS station will receive a
second QSL document. Details on how to get a certificate can be found
on the AFMARS official website (https://www.mars.af.mil) and the QRZ
event call sign page (https://www.qrz.com/lookup).

Contact KD5SBP for additional info.
