At the beginning of the month, I posted about a Special Event Station – K2N, that was going to be operating from NY State aboard the USS Slater.
As luck would have it, my schedule did not permit me to get on the air that day “to give a shot” at working them. This was a disappointment as I love working Special Event Stations, especially those that in anyway commemorate our Military or our Veterans.
Fortunately, Stan WB2LQF announced on the e-mail reflectors about a video posted to YouTube showing the day’s activities. Here it is:
On a different note, I spent the evening printing out certificates for the 2012 NJQRP Skeeter Hunt. The top five finishers, as well as the high scorers from each state or province that entered should be seeing something in their mailboxes within the next week or two.
Again – thanks to all for making this inaugural 2012 event a big success!
Lastly – ATTENTION KIT BUILDERS !!!!!!
The ARRL wants your input, as they are looking for recommendations for “easy to build” kits for first time or Newbie kit builders. The link to the page is: http://www.arrl.org/news/attention-kit-builders-the-arrl-wants-to-hear-from-you.
I recommended the ACME QRP GC100 Gel Cell Charger Kit. It was easy to build and is highly functional and usable. What more could you ask for?
