Club Program Ideas: CQ Sixty Meters

DipoleIn this series on Club Program ideas, I’m providing possible programs for clubs to use in their meetings. You can find a full explanation of the approach in Club Programs – The Series.

Today’s program idea: CQ Sixty Meters.

So here is the truth: I know nothing about 60-meters even though it has been available to hams since July 3rd, 2003.

Since the band is limited to channel operation, fifty watts ERP and USB only, life is a challenge on this band.

What equipment is used? How do channels work? What is on the band?

Even if I never went on the band, I’d like to know how this band works and a club program from someone on the band would fill the need nicely.
