W4F Special Event Station
The band seems to be relatively quiet this evening but I heard this "special event station" in St Petersburg Florida, calling and decided to return the call with 3 watts of power. I'm in the habit now of taking a guess at the distance, and lowering my power to the absolute minimum. I like the challenge.
These three letter calls (W4F) always stand out like a shouting policeman to me.
This Florida station is celebrating the "90th Anniversary" of the "Festival of States". I especially like working these kinds of stations, although in my opinion, not enough of them take advantage of using Morse Code. My only regrets this evening is that I didn't make the contact with one watt instead of three.
It sounds like a fun event " Festival of States St Petersburg Florida"
