If you like to collect rare and historically significant QSL cards this is an event you will like… W1AA/MSC will be for International Marconi Day on April 26th to represent the Marconi 1901 shore station on Nantucket.

W1AA/MSC will be mostly on CW because we will be running a temporary setup from my QTH with an IC-7000 (100 watts) and a 80 meter dipole for all bands. Using an ancient IBM ThinkPad lap top and CT for logging.

The list of participating stations is on the G land page, at http://g4usb.net/IMD/. I think there are 31 and maybe more, and there is an award.

See you on the 26th. Mark your calendar.
