Harvard, MIT Mount Joint IARU Contest Operation

HWC shieldW1MX QSLThe Harvard Wireless Club and the MIT Radio Society ran a joint effort in the IARU HF World Championship from W1MX on July 8-9, 2006.

“We finished with about 1200 QSOs,” writes HWC member Clayton Nall, NF1R. The joint operation saw participation by five operators at the W1MX shack at MIT in Cambridge.

Interestingly, HWC member and Harvard alum Fred Hopengarten, K1VR of Lincoln, MA heard the MIT/Harvard team while participating in the event from Brazil. “W1MX had a good, but not great, signal. I was the referee for the Estonian team, using the callsign PW5K.”
