July 2017 WW1USA Event

2014 08 0216.20
The SFTARC sponsored WW1USA event at the National World War I Museum and Memorial is set for July 22-23, 2017. The event will commemorate the Battle of Passchendaele. 

The club will have about a week to sign up before it is opened to the general public.

The link to the Signup to operate at the event is:


Please sign up and come down and operate. If you have a spouse or children who are interested in the hobby bring them down and let them operate. It is a Ham experience like no other I've had. It feels like being the rare DX with less pressure and is a fun way to learn about WWI.

We will be set up in the West Lobby this time. The operation will be kind of a hybrid...a SSB station will use a remote set up as in the past. There will also be a CW station using a local transceiver with an antenna outside of the west side of the building.

I encourage you to come if you can. It is uncertain at this time if SFTARC will sponsor an event next year so this may be your last best chance to get involved.
