W4M Memphis Bicentennial Event – Planning Meeting
Members of Delta Club utilized the program time of the April 9, 2019 meeting to plan the W4M Memphis Bicentennial Event.
The Delta Amateur Radio Club is hosting a special event to help celebrate the City of Memphis Bicentennial Celebration this May. Delta Club has secured the special call sign, W4M, to use from May 17 through May 31. There will be an on-site event on Saturday, May 25, 2019. The actual date for Memphis’s Bicentennial is Wednesday, May 22, 2019 but several events are occurring on Saturday, May 25, 2019.
Steve Frazier KK4VPT updated everyone on the current progress: location is secured, event information is on the QRZ page and set to come out in the May issue, and other smaller, completed tasks.
Steve Frazier KK4VPT said that there are no outside outlets located where we will be setup, but it may be a good opportunity for the club to practice and exhibit our ability to be self-sufficient with batteries/generators. He reminded everyone that the plan was to have different club members operate the call sign from home locations throughout the two weeks, and then have the set location on May 25.
Barry McDonald W5CJ updated everyone to the status of obtaining a Logbook of the World account for the event. He is finalizing W4BS registration, and then he will secure the needed information for the W4M event.
