Report on Signal Corps 150th Special Event Station

21 Jun 2010 19:15 | Bill Laakkonen

Based on what I could read from the sign-in sheet we had about 22 folks visit our Club's Special Event Station "K4ZK Camp Murphy" last weekend at Hobe Mountain, J. Dickinson State Park, Hobe Sound FL. (Members list subscribers should receive a copy of the list). Here is a slide show below.

 



It really was a great time despite the summer weather challenges and at least 22 folks dropped in with about another 20 passing by our field station on the way to the observation tower. The set up and take down crew did an awesome job despite the heat and terrain.  A tally of actual radio contacts is being pulled together and the bands did finally open up on Sunday.


A special"Thanks" go out to Bill N4BKT for the idea, pulling everything together equipment wise, for the use of his motor home and gear, and especially for the press releases and PR promotions. His hard work and dedication to your club was noticed and appreciated.>> Nice Job Bill!

MCARA Newcomer Eric (KJ4TPZ) is now "certified" and passed the "How to launch a tree top dipole" course and John (KE4JB)gets a big "Bravo" for his Buddy Pole efforts. Thanks guys.
