Ce groupe a feté son deuxiéme anniversaire en mai dernier.
The HamSphere Late Night DX-gang is the biggest family of HS4-users!
Since the 9th of May 2015 we have a new hardworking and organised crew on HamSphere 4: The HamSphere Late Night DX-gang, founded by Georg BARBARY (ON8AIR).
The most important target of the group is to generate more activity on HamSphere 4.
A member of that ‘gang’ is called a NightHowler or a Wolf.
In only 8 months time the ‘NightHowlers’ have launched several activations:
Ladies Night-activity (special attention for the female members of the gang), The DreamTeam-activity (hunting football-QSL), Back In Time-QSL (‘what was your first radio?’), the Magic Word-activity (find the 5 letterword by hunting NightHowlers on HS4), Forgotten Bands-activation (e.g. 27Mc), DigiMode-activity, several DX-peditions and of course their Late Night DX-gang contest.
There are 3 sorts of Nighthowlers:
a. The Novice Howler:
The Hampshere 4 Late Night DX-gang helps out new stations on Hamsphere 4, even if they don’t have the ‘50 countries award on HS4’ yet. That new station can become a ‘Novice Howler’. A Novice Howler is training to win the ‘50 countries award on HS4’.
b. A NightHowler can bring new DX-stations on HamSphere 4. If that station decides to wait to become a ‘Novice Howler’ or a full-member, he/she will receive a special QSL-card with our ‘helpers-logo’ on it.
c. The full member or NightHowler: All stations that have obtained the ’50 countries award on HS4’ can become a NightHowler. The full member will receive several QSL-cards, a membershipcertificate and full access to all the activations.
In addition to bring more activity on HS4, the NightHowlers are also working on better operatorskills. That’s why they have created a huge packet of Operating Practice-rules (can be found on their facebookpage).
For the moment this gang has about 135 HS4-users in their Wolfpack and is organised by a board of directors who decide weekly about new activities.
