W1F Fessenden Special Events Operation, Brant Rock, MA

Hello Radio logoSteve Barreres, K2CX writes on the YCCC reflector:

I believe you are aware of the League’s final plans for their HELLO Campaign that will take place on December 29-30.

The Peconic Amateur Radio Club is sponsoring one of the Special Event stations: W1F will be operated from the same location (Brant Rock, MA) that Reginald Fessenden made his Christmas and New Year’s Eve voice broadcasts in 1906–the 100th anniversary of a great radio event.

ICOM, Stepp IR as well as Heil Audio have graciously donated loaner facilities for this event. Additionally, there is a good chance that “Good Morning America” will do a live segment from our station the morning of December 29. It would be nice if you could notify the membership of your club of the festivities, many might like to contact us.

As in any event this large, there will be plenty of work to do. Would you please distribute this information, along with the request that anyone interested in assisting/setting-up and/or operating W1F, to please contact me at my ARRL E-mail address.

Best regards,

Steve Barreres, K2CX
