Several months back I started uploading all my logs to LoTW.  I found out that I was just a few digital contacts short of the WAS Triple Play award.  After finding JT65-HF and the alert that goes along with it, it didn’t take too long to complete the award!

My Original WAS was issued in the early 1990’s.  A pair of them for the standard WAS and the “2 Letter Extra Class” WAS for the “GERATOL Award” (#1474).  I got the 160 meter WAS when I got the Triple Play and couldn’t believe that no more than #1530 have applied for a WAS for that band.

ARRL Field Day coming!

The Jacksonville ARS will hold Field Day at the Prairieland Heritage grounds again this year.  A couple of years ago we were in the old bandstand that was resurrected from the Smithsonian that you see in this picture.  This year we are again in the building far back to the east of this bandstand.  Come out and see us on June 24, 2017.
