Special Event Station
June 3, 2006


The special event station we ran at the Red Cross on June the third to commemorate SVARA's 50th anniversary was a success.  We had lots of operators and loggers, good snacks and 107 QSO's in the four hour time period we ran the stations.  A lot of people stopped by to watch and/or to participate.  We ran 40 and 20 meters simultaneously mostly sideband with Joe, K8CQF, and Keith, N8XD running some CW. We made a few contacts on 146.58, but it was tough to operate two meters as we just didn't have the room for three stations. So far I have sent out 29 certificates and QSLs. Those of you who contacted the station; send me (Dave, N8ERL) a QSL and I will get a certificate to you (email me if you're not sure what time you made contact).
