Saturday October 14, 2017 CARC will operate K3IEC Portable from Fulton County. This operation celebrates the heritage of Fulton County and coincides with the PA QSO PARTY.
Our operation will begin at 1600 UTC and end at 2100 UTC. For the Local Time Enthusiasts, that will be Noon to 5 p.m. Eastern.
We have lofty goals of operating Multi-Multi Portable with as many as four signals on the air -- Phone, CW, and perhaps RTTY on whatever bands we find open that day. 80/75, 40, 20, 15, 10, and 6 meters are all likely candidates.
Phone 3860, 7260, 14260, 21360, 28360, and 50220.
CW 3545, 7045, 14045, 21045, 28045
RTTY The usual RTTY places
I will post QSL mailing address information in this spot as our plans develop.
Usual QSL process -- USA Contacts -- your card, and your SASE.
VE and DX Contacts -- your card is one option. Or send a request for a QSL via email with our QSO info and your return address included (Address email to AF3I@RadioClub-CARC.com). AF3I will cover return postage to VE/DX locations outside the USA if our QSO and card is helpful to your award objectives.
Our Club is fortunate to have volunteers step forward and provide their services. For that I am thankful and wish to recognize the Volunteers.
Frank Mellott KB3PQT -- Location Scout, Advocate, Organizer, Set Up, Take Down, Chef, and Phone Operator
Dave Hile W3VRE -- QSL Manager, Set Up, Take Down, and Digital Operator
Steve Hancock N3FWE -- APRS Specialist, Setup, Take Down, and Phone Operator
Doug Stenger KC3CPT -- Record Breaking VHF Operator, Cargo Logistics Specialist, Set Up, Take Down,
Andy Forsyth AF3I -- Quartermaster, Set Up, Take Down, and CW Operator.
I think there are some potential operators waiting to see how our plans evolve.
Additional Volunteers are welcome and encouraged. If you are a Technician and would like to operate VHF (6 & 2) I will make sure we have a rig and antennae for you. There is a possibility of the 10 meter band being open where Techs have Phone privileges. Or, you can enjoy having an important role in this event under the watchful eye of a Control Operator.
