W1A Volunteers Needed

“I hope you’re all enjoying the summer and had fun at FD! I am […] the chairman of the W1A effort in Boxboro this year.

<…>

I need volunteers for two-hour stints, Saturday and Sunday, to help supervise the Station (i.e., be the control operator). You can even run pile-ups during light times! I will also need volunteers to help set-up and take down. This activity is comparable to a Class 1A Field Day effort, except when you’re done, you can retreat inside an air-conditioned building next to a bar!

If any of you are interested, please respond via email to me ASAP. All control op time slots are currently open, so first-come, first-served.

Please pass this along to anyone you know […]

73,
Steve Wedge, W1ES
