From K1USN Happenings, September 29, 2023:
“Where Is Quincy Granite?”
Quincy Radio Club Special Event “Where Is Quincy Granite?” is scheduled for Saturday, October 7 from 1400 – 1900 UTC. We will be transmitting from the Quincy Quarry & Granite Workers Museum located in Quincy, Massachusetts. Our SES is in honor and remembrance to the once vibrant granite quarry industry in Quincy during the 19th and early 20th century.
Granite from the numerous quarries was used in construction and monument bases all over the eastern US. We hope to make contacts with stations that have Quincy granite in their communities. New York, Maryland, Illinois, Rhode Island and many other places are where you can find “Quincy Granite” Our members will be on the HF bands SSB/FT8/CW as well as WiresX—Quincy Room #63826. We hope to have an APRS station up as well—KW1NZE-7.
