I will be organizing a special event station using my call sign — NE1R — at the American Red Cross of Central and Western Massachusetts (Worcester) Saturday, March 10 starting at 8 AM ET. The station was setup Friday March 9th and we QRT’ed at 6 PM ET. Good work given propagation: 93 QSOs (contacts), 27 states, and 6 countrys. We will be operating at least one HF station trying to make as many contacts as possible to promote awareness that March is American Red Cross Month. This is a local aspect of an effort being carried on in several chapter across the country.
If you are so inclined, I ask you to (1) follow me on Twitter — @NE1R — for near real-time up-dates on where we are operating, (2) contact me about volunteering to operate/log/tweet etc. at the event, (3) contact us on the air and give us a contact, (4) help spread the word about the event through your social medial, e-mail lists and reflectors, and on-air contacts. This isn’t really a “contest.” But, a bit of effort has been put into promoting this event and bragging rights would be a nice result. Also, it could be a long day if we don’t get a lot of activity.
If you can’t follow me on Twitter, look for us around 14.327 and 21.327 Mhz.
