I mentioned yesterday about a Thanksgiving Special Event Station that I used to enjoy working. I thumbed through my collection of certificates last night and found this one:
The Whitman Amateur Radio Club in Massachusetts used to put WA1NPO on the air from the Plimoth Plantation. This certificate is 39 years old!
I Googled the Whitman ARC and they are still doing this! Here's the details from their website:
Plimoth Patuxet Museums annual event returns Thanksgiving 2023 weekend.
Thank You to all Check-ins and those participated last year !!
Hours: Setup Friday Nov 24'th 10AM to 12PM
On the Air time Sat Nov 25'th 9AM to about 3PM
On the Air time Sun Nov 26'th 8:30AM to about 3PM
Take down about 3PM
We will be using special event callsign NI1X monitoring the WA1NPO repeater on 147.225 Mhz Tone 67.0.
Our HF station will cover 80 through 10 Meters.
It's nice to see they're still doing this so many years later! They also mentioned that they will be posting their HF activities to the DX Cluster. I think I'm going to keep an eye out for them and will try to work them again for old time's sake.
