February 14th 2015 N3AQC Special Event
The West Virginia Chapter of the NAQCC Club will once again be transmitting from the Museum of Radio and Technology in Huntington WV on the 14th of Feburary, 2015. We will be using the club call sign N3AQC from 10 am till 2 pm. (1500Z - 1900Z). I hope our visit to this museum will always be an annual event for our West Virginia Chapter. This was a fun event last year.
This museum is a "treasure chest" of not only ham radio gear, but is a fascinating place to view a variety of electronic radio equipment. The "ham shack" has special significance to the hams in the Charleston WV area. First of all, local ham W8AH (SK) worked 362 countries on 40 meters from his home station in Charleston. His QSL cards are here and a personal friend of mine, Bernie Clark W8PNR (SK) also has an enormous home brew amplifier here.
I'll be using my Icom 703 at 5 watts of power into either the nine element beam or an array of dipole antennas. We will transmit on or near the QRP segments of the bands but will focus on 40 and 20 meters. Should you work us, please spot us on either the NAQCC "members on the air" or "QRP Spots".
For our chapter members and friends in Europe...it's quite easy to work you with a nine element beam and 5 watts of power on the 20 meter band. Listen for us....
QSL by e-QSL per N8ZYA
