On January 28 2017, the Santa Fe Trail ARC club came to Del’s Sawyer’s QTH, and started setting up for special event to celebrate when Kansas joined the union on January 29, 1861.
We had 8 operators for a total of 96 SSB contacts and 6 CW contacts.

The most interesting event of the day, Jim Krentzel KE0GEY, contacted his grandfather in Oregon who is also a ham.

The antennas employed were 2 Windoms and a Comet 422 dipole.

The radios employed were Yeasue FT-3000 and ICOM IC-756 pro III.

Both radio ran 100 watts.
The airwaves were crowed with Winter Field Day, Montana QSO Party, and WW1USA events.
