PostHeaderIcon 5th Anniversary FT8DMC


To commemorate our 5th anniversary, special event stations will be on air during the FT8DMC Activity Days from 4th to 17th July 2022. All stations will bear the FTDMC or FTDM suffix, referring to the fifth anniversary of the FT8 Digital Mode Club.

If you are interested in activating a special callsign the suffix must be FTDMC or FTDM. Please send a copy of the issued special callsign license to oe6vie(at)gmail.com no later than 10.06.2022 The FT8DMC is not responsible for printing QSL cards or answering incoming QSL inquiries. Each special event station is responsible for answering QSL queries themself.

An FTDMC Anniversary Award can be earned by working the FTDMC and FTDM stations and collecting points applicable for various award classes.

Please note, that working the same station on the same band in the same mode is considered a ‘dupe’ QSO and will not count for the award.

The award will be available free in a digital format. This year you can download your Anniversary Award from our new Dashboard, please visit https://ft8dmc.com

Note: The dashboard will be open for public at 26.06.2022

ISS to crash into Pacific as early as 2031

NASA’s plans for the end of ISS

The International Space Station (ISS) can’t continue forever. Its lifetime is limited by primary structures – modules, radiators and trusses – that can’t be repaired or replaced. On January 31, 2022, NASA announced that the Biden-Harris administration had extended the space station’s operations until 2030. So as early as 2031, the space station could be guided to a fiery demise, as it de-orbits through Earth’s atmosphere. The goal would be to place it in the Pacific Ocean near what’s called Point Nemo, the point in Earth’s oceans farthest from land. That scenario is part of a report released by NASA in January 2022
