Ok campers! Another year, another Lincoln Trail Hike, including the now famous N9L Special Events Station(s). The important stuff follows:
Call sign N9L is available for our use Saturday April 24 through Sunday April 25.
Stations will be operating from the following locations:
- Lincoln’s New Salem
- Panther Creek
- Camp Illinek – Walter Rudolph, Ed Gaffney
- Stuart Park
For information and operator assignments, contact:
Start time is 1400Z both days. Note that the LTH is Saturday, but you can use N9L from your QTH on Sunday. Please make sure that your logs are legible. After the event, turn in your logs to me (Ed). I will take care of the QSLs. If we have a large number of requests for QSLs, will need help getting them processed! We will be operating on 40m and 20m phone for sure – any CW / PSK31 volunteers? Do not be shy about signing up at any one of the four above locations!
