Look out for LU and PY stations on 50MHz SSSP

SARL News report skeds have been arranged with stations in Argentina and Brazil between 10:00 and 13:00 UTC during the Short-path Summer Solstice Propagation (SSSP) season by Pieter Jacobs, V51PJ, in Namibia.

They will be using 50,250 MHz digital and alternate between FT8 and JT65a modes. All ZS VHF stations are welcome to join in the tests and could also try analogue on 50,110 MHz, the international DX calling frequency.

Many 50 MHz SSSP contacts have already been made over the years on analogue between Japan and Europe, during their summer solstice in June, while in the southern hemisphere New Zealand has hooked up with South American stations. All ZS stations are welcome to join in the tests.

Australian stations have already alerted us that they will be looking for Division 2 and 5 stations in South Africa on 50,276 MHz JT65a second period or try 50,110 MHz for analogue. So, the possibility is there for South African stations to work Australia and/or New Zealand on 50 MHz SSSP for the first time.
