That’s right, the end is finally near. According to one of the three Mayan Calendars, the End of the world will occur on Dec 21, 2012. To celebrate this literally once in a lifetime event, Special Event Station N0D (Now Zero Days) will be activated on 10-80 meters for three days during and after (?) the end of the world. December 20 is a celebration of the end of the world. December 21, the day of destruction, we will be on the air as long as possible. December 22nd, that is a little iffy right now.
N0D team will be working available satellite passes beginning December 15th, 2012, through the end of the world and possibly beyond until December 22nd. The team will be using the Official Doomsday call sign, N0D. This will provide cosmic, even intergalactic coverage, for the end of the world as we know it.
Amateur radio stations around the crumbling globe are invited to contact N0D, who will be operating from secret, undisclosed locations. Our operating schedule may be a little erratic as destruction rains down upon us. Those who may be looking skyward for the end of the world, N0D will be operating on several satellite passes.
You can celebrate Doomsday by contacting N0D directly on the air. Amateurs can also become an official Doomsday station by registering on our website. You will be given a registration number and the authority to identify yourself as “Official Doomsday Station” followed by your Doomsday number.
QSL with a SASE to KK5W, the WGD’s very own Doomsday imaginer, Ron Litt. If Doomsday actually does happen, we regret that a QSL will not be possible, so hold on to your SASE until the 22nd at least. Check out our website for a preview of the N0D QSL card.
Amateurs can also become an official Doomsday station by registering on our website. You will be given a registration number and the authority to identify yourself as “Official Doomsday Station” followed by your Doomsday number. Official Doomsday stations will receive the Doomsday Station Certificate.
It is not entirely clear exactly how it will happen. Will it be a cataclysmic shift in the earth’s magnetic field, Global Warming on steroids, earthquakes, volcanoes floods, global thermonuclear war, meteor collision, the 10 plagues of Egypt UFO invasion who knows? There are scientists, soothsayers and philosophers on both sides of the question. Either way it will be an event worth remembering…or maybe there will be no one left to remember it?
