W100AW – My Day being DX at W1AW by N1IC


Being from Connecticut I never, really appreciating being that closes the ARRL. I have always had connections from club lunches in Newington as well as being a Diamond Club contributor as I believe in the cause: http://www.arrl.org/the-arrl-diamond-club

I was visiting my dad at the VA in Rocky Hill, which the VA care he is getting right now is amazing and I am excited about that considering all the other news out there. I do not want to get off on a VA tangent, but the story starts there. After a hard day seeing a World War II Vet at 94, I wanted to get back to the airport and head back to Florida. I had some time so I decided to head over the league for a while.second (17 of 19)

To be on the safe side I emailed the league the night before to ensure they knew I was coming, but I found that over the years of operating it’s pretty easy to get in and of course it’s first come first serve.

    Good story, Nick. I really enjoyed operating there 12 years ago and hope to do it again during the convention. You’re right, it’s quite a place. (Meanwhile I’ll be “W1AW/0” from MN in a few days. Nice to do it from your home QTH!)

    PS For anyone else reading this, if you come be sure to bring your license.
