Camp Wanocksett Special Event Station.
I meet with the camp director last night about setting up a
ARS at Camp Wanocksett next week. I really didn't know
what to expect from the camp. I had visions of the reaction
of "we just don't want to deal with it." to "No Way!".
I am very happy to say that their reaction was totally different.
It was a total CAN DO attitude. They wanted to know if I wanted
power to the camp site, etc. A real red carpet treatment!
My guess is we will be working a lot on 20 meters, somewhere
between 14.240-14.270. It will be worked under my call sign
of WA1GON. The times I will just have to play by ear, but the
date will be 20-25 Aug. I may be able to also do some PSK-31.
I am planning on having the "Now Your Talking!" and the ARRL
Handbook. The station will be an IC-746, computer, and a HT.
What else should I have to introduce the Scouts to ARS?
