Anyone for QRP To The Field 2009 this coming Saturday? Details of this
event can be found at
The "Theme" of this year's event is "The Great Depression" - and bonus
points/multipliers are given to expeditions to sites build by the
WPA/CCC, etc. during the 1930's The idea is to operate as a portable
station at or near such a site.
I haven't settled on a site - but I do know that Riverside Park in Grand
Rapids is the site of a CCC camp which was built in the 1930's. Also,
there's a depression era mural on the wall of the Post Office in
Rockford. And, I believe that parts or all of Fallasburg Park, and
perhaps Myers Lake Park, both in Kent County, might have been built
during the 1930's.
Please let me know of your interest, and suggestions for operating
sites. The current plan is to operate from near the Rockford Post
Office - along the White Pine Trail, but this is very tentative. A
"better" WPA/CCC site would be welcomed.
Pardon the late solicitation - the organizer of the event had
preliminary info a couple months ago, but didn't
