Hi all,

This is a reminder that this month's FreeDV Activity Day is this coming weekend. (As a reminder, Activity Day takes place on the third weekend of every month.) This event will bring together people interested in HF digital voice on the air for conversation and fun. Contacts using the official application as well as ezDV, the SM1000 handheld microphone and other supporting devices and applications are welcome.

Event time: 12AM Pacific time (0700Z) on May 18 to 11:59PM on May 19 (0659Z on May 20) (48 hours).

Suggested frequencies:
160 meters: 1.997 MHz
80 meters: 3.625, 3.643, 3.693, 3.697 MHz or 3.850 MHz
60 meters (in countries where allowed): 5.4035 MHz or 5.3665 MHz
40 meters: 7.177 MHz or 7.197 MHz
20 meters: 14.236 MHz or 14.240 MHz
17 meters: 18.118 MHz
15 meters: 21.313 MHz
12 meters: 24.933 MHz
10 meters: 28.330 or 28.720 MHz
10 GHz (for those in range of QO-100): 10489.640 MHz

(Note that LSB/DIGL is used below 10MHz as per current convention for voice modes, USB/DIGU otherwise. 60 meters is of course USB/DIGU only.)

As this isn't a contest, there's no pressure to make contacts or send logs, but you can always confirm QSOs via the usual means if you'd like (LoTW, eQSL, QRZ, etc.) Enabling reporting (PSK Reporter and FreeDV Reporter) in the FreeDV application and joining FreeDV Reporter and Discord are recommended, however, so others can see that you're on the air and hearing them (for instance, here's the current map of listeners). :D

Feel free to spread this far and wide among your local ham friends and groups! :) Let me know if you have any questions about the event and definitely post here if you have issues getting the application working prior to the event.
