Another special event station was held here in 1994, 95 & 96 with local hams making pages of contacts. I wasn't able to attend, but I did a layout & made the QSL cards and certificates that were sent out to everyone who made contact with the station. When the SASE was received and checked against the log, the certificate was sent out. (above is picture of certificate awarded in '95 & 96) Anyone have a picture of the station set up??

Prof's call, W4UFD, was used and several operators kept the bands covered. KE4VPD george , KE4JUD lynn (AE4JU now), N4WOF mike, W4UFD prof, WD4EIK charlie, KE4RJH freddie, KS4SL jason, KS4TM scott, KE4RMP bob, KE4TFD mickey, WD4EBB lani (W4VIR now), KA4ARB chuck,WD4KAF bill, & KE4CTU george were the op's of the day.

Mike N4WOF helped secure a hanger at Souther Field to use for the day. For some reason Lindbergh Days fell by the wayside and hasn't been held anymore.

My new voting precinct is now at Souther Field so while voting, I shot these pic's . The K4VBH/mobile can be seen in the background on #2. The last shot of course is at the studios of K4JAD on GA #27 East.
