After the success of the November 2016 NA<>EU S2S event, I have been in discussion with various activators about a repeat event. The date that I have put forwards is Saturday 13th May 2017 with a projected time frame similar to the November event, that is 14:00 to 18:00UTC.
The propagation predictions are unfortunately very poor for the coming months and we are also within the major contesting season. On 13th May 2017 we would have to contend with the CQ-M contest. However, alternatives appear to be few and far between and virtually any date is likely to coincide with some contest activity. Given the issues that exist, I would like to suggest that those activators who are interested in trying to make NA<>EU S2S contests might wish to give this a try, but we should probably expect to achieve somewhat less than we did last November. I therefore throw this proposal open for discussion and expressions of interest.
In the longer term, my suggestion is that we aim for another event on 18th November 2017.
