WWV Centennial Celebration Special Event 09/28 - 10/02/2019
« on: February 28, 2019, 09:39:54 PM »
Did you know that WWV had an Amateur Radio Club?
Yes, it's now official  WW0WWV granted February 23, 2019.

WWV Amateur Radio Club, organized to help celebrate the
100th anniversary of WWV, the world's oldest continuously
broadcasting radio station.

The Northern Colorado Amateur Radio Club (NCARC) and
the WWV ARC, along with the National Institute of Standards
and Technology (NIST) and radio station WWV, will host a
WWV Centennial Celebration on October 1, 2019.

"NCARC will operate a special event amateur radio station,
call sign WW0WWV, on the WWV property starting
September 28 and going 24-hours a day through October 2. 
The goal is to make as many U.S. and world-wide contacts
during the 120-hour period as possible, using multiple bands
and multiple modes on at least 4 simultaneous transmitters. 
The effort will require hundreds of volunteer operators.

The 100th anniversary is an occasion to celebrate radio and our
understanding of the EM spectrum, and an opportunity to help
people everywhere appreciate what radio does in their everyday lives."
   

More details will be coming as the event gets closer.
It will be interesting to see what bands and modes they use.
