W1AA To Activate Scituate Light

W1AA/Scituate Lighthouse QSLK1VV and K1WCC plan to activate Scituate Light USA742 & Scituate North Jetty USA1273 as W1AA on Saturday, August 2, 2008 from 7:00 AM EDT (1100 UTC) until about 2:00 PM EDT (1800 UTC).

“Whitey” Doherty, K1VV notes that he and Henry will begin operations on 75 meters around 3994 kHz plus/minus. “Later, we will go to 40 phone around 7234 and 7040. On 20, we’ll be on 14270 plus/minus. If there’s too much QRM we will be above 14310.”

K1VV says they will run K1WCC’s station simultaneously and cover two bands. “We have bandpass filters, but we may not be able to run both stations that close to each other.”

DX QSLs can be sent via the Bureau. Stateside cards should be sent to W1AA with a self-addressed, stamped envelope to the QRZ.com address.

“All are welcome to come by,” says Whitey. “We will be set up in the parking area next to the light. [Look for the] silver 2007 Toyota Tacoma pickup with a 33-foot mast on the back of the truck.”
