Tomorrow, Saturday, May 13th, is your day to talk to the Armed Forces on their annual crossband test day.
I have done this for several years, and gotten pretty good results. You used to get QSL cards from the different bases,but now I think they mail, or maybe email nowadays, one card with the locations of all of your contacts checked off on that card.
To participate you merely set your radio to split mode, and monitor for the Military stations on their frequencies / times shown below, on USB.
When you hear a CQ, or other type announcement from them, their transmission will include the Amateur Band frequency that they are monitoring.
You'll set that as your transmit frequency and reply to them as you would any station.
Have fun, Curtis / AK5CT
