Ham Radio at GeoWoodstock 8?

Recommended Posts

Is anybody setting up a 2-meter band GeoWoodstock repeater for GeoWoodstock 8 in Washington? That would be really cool!

There are quite a few here already. Lots of 2m, 440 and even some 900 and 6m

There could be a 2 meter 'check in' station and hand out QSL cards for those attending and check in.

 

How about a 'Special Event station' offering a certificate? Just ideas for the local hams, but I'd work a time slot for it.

That's a great idea. Hopefully we can work that out.

I'd certainly block out a few hours to help man a special event station while we're there...

Good news! The friendly GeoWoodstock folks have given me permission to do a special event station. I have posted more details on the GeoWoodstock forums at http://geowoodstock.com/index.php?option=c...2&Itemid=37

 

Now I need volunteers to work the station and possibly loan us HF equipment.

Just in case there some question you need to get answered

1)how much area are we going to have?

2)what about antenna space, what kind and how are we going to get it up?

3) do we have access to commerical power?

4)when are we going to get access to the site to set up our equipment?

5)QSL's what and how do we log for QSL's PC? paper? of course we have to require a sase. and or do use LBOW or EQSL?

6)Will we be able to get on line there?

These are just of a few things that need to be considered. I'm sure there will be more.

You know how to get ahold of me if I can be of some help. I ran a few mini DXpedtions when I was with SCRA.

The website for the Special Event Station is now up. I have contacted a local club up there and asked if they would loan us equipment. The website has a form to volunteer, so if you would like to help, please fill that out.
