NRA Birthday Special Event November 17, 2018

The Yavapai Amateur Radio Club (YARC) of Prescott, AZ, is operated a special event station November 17, 2018, in celebration of the NRA’s 147th birthday. The special event station operated from Gunsite Academy’s 2,000-acre campus in Paulden, AZ, north of Prescott. The special event call sign was K7NRA. Operations were conducted on the following frequencies: 7.040, 7.250, 14.040, 14.250, 21.040 and 21.335 MHz. The hours of operation were from 1500 to 2400 UTC. KL7R again operated a satellite station.

Due to logistics and equipment availability issues, the CW operation took place at the YARC club station between 1800 and 2400 UTC.

A special certificate will be awarded to those stations that made contact during the event. QSL with a 9 x 12 SASE to:
