Titanic Event and POTA Activation, April 12-14

W1MGY QSL cardLem Skidmore, W1LEM, writes on the Barnstable ARC mailing list:

This is an annual event to commemorate the April 15, 1912 sinking of the Titanic, run by The Titanic Marconi Memorial Radio Association Of Cape Cod (a.k.a Barry KB1TLR and friends). 

This year we wil also be activating the Cape Cod National Seashore for Parks on the Air (POTA).

We’ll be operating from the Salt Pond Visitor’s Center April 12-14 (the ship struck the iceberg on the 12th). See https://www.nps.gov/caco/planyourvisit/hours.htm.

We’ll need operators to make contacts around the world, assist with logging QSOs, meet and greet the public, and enjoy themselves.  There will always be a General or Extra class operator present, so all licensed amateurs will be able to operate on HF.  This is a good opportunity for Technicians to get some experience on HF.
