Amateur Radio Kids Day and SR0FLY June 16

IARU Region 1 Youth Coordinator Lisa Leenders PA2LS reports on Amateur Radio Kids Day, this Saturday, June 16, and the high-altitude balloon SR0FLY.
On the occasion of the Amateur Radio Kids Day on June 16, 2012, there will be a special activity that could be especially interesting as a means of promotion of amateur radio amongst young operators and young potential radio amateurs. A tropospheric balloon will be launched on June 16 (Saturday) at 11.00 UTC from Włocławek, Poland, and it will carry a cross-band repeater with the callsign SR0FLY.
145.587,5 MHz (downlink)
439.512,5 MHz (uplink)
The cross band repeater is part of the payload and mission of the stratospheric balloon. The balloons range is a radius of about 600 kilometres. So, there is a real chance to realize QSO's between stations located up to 1200 kilometres from each other.
Remember:
1. Only short QSO with your callsign and report,
2. Cross band repeater is working without any tones,
3. We will confirm all QSO by special QSL card.
Please report your QSO or SWL using our on-line log

Kids Day is an on-air event to encourage young people (licensed or not) to have fun with Amateur Radio. The Kids Day operating event is not a contest. It’s a way to tell young people worldwide about the magic and mystery of two way hobby radio communications. To do this, Amateur radio stations are being asked to devote this short time window to promote the terrestrial hobby and ham radio satellite operations to youngsters. This, by providing a place to make contacts with other Kids Day stations around the world. It is designed to give on-the-air experience to youngsters and hopefully foster interest in getting a license of their own. It is also intended to give older hams a chance to share their station and love for Amateur Radio with their children.
Date and Time: 1800 UTC through 2359 UTC on Saturday, June 16. Operate as much or as little as you like.
Suggested exchange: Name, age, location and favourite colour. Be sure to work the same station again if an operator has changed. To draw attention, call “CQ Kids Day.â€
Suggested frequencies:
10 Meters: 28.350 to 28.400 MHz
12 Meters: 24.960 to 24.980 MHz
15 Meters: 21.360 to 21.400 MHz
17 Meters: 18.140 to 18.145 MHz
20 Meters: 14.270 to 14.300 MHz
40 Meters: 7.270 to 7.290 MHz
80 Meters: 3.740 to 3.940 MHz
You can also use your favourite repeater (with permission of the repeater’s sponsor). Be sure to observe third-party restrictions when making DX QSOs.
