- From another ham radio reflector. Obviously, these folks didn't check
the ARRL contest calendar. . . .
However, if you're on before SS starts, you might find W3T or W3Y or
YU0TESLA on the air.
Wardenclyffe, Nikola Tesla’s last laboratory will be on the air November
5^th as special event station W3T! Wardenclyffe is located in Shoreham,
NY on Long Island. W3T is part of a network of special event stations
that are helping to raise awareness for the effort to purchase the
laboratory and restore it into a science museum. To read more about the
effort to restore Wardencyffe, please check out
http://www.teslasciencecenter.org The other stations in the network are
N3Y which will transmit via satellite and possibly HF from the New
Yorker Hotel, Tesla’s last home in Manhattan, and YU0TESLA which will
transmit on 20m as well as other HF bands from the Tesla Museum in
Belgrade. For the latest updates on what frequencies to catch the
stations on and a sneak peek at the QSL cards and QTHs, go
If you’re in the Shoreham area on the 5^th , please stop by the station!
Also, be sure to check out the Radio Central Amateur Radio Club. They
will have the Marconi radio shack on the air a few miles away
transmitting as a special event station commemorating the 90^th
anniversary of the opening of the RCA transmitting antenna farm in Rocky
Point, NY. More details are available athttp://www.rcarc.org/. Without
the RCA club W3T would not be on the air. Their help has been invaluable!
And, this just in, we are proud to announce that one more historic
station will be on the air with us on the 5th of November, the Police
Athletic League Amateur Radio Club of Yonkers, NY, a mere few meters
from the site of the first FM transmission 66 years ago on November 5th
of 1935 will be on the air with same call sign as the historic station:
