Another successful season for RAWNY is winding down and it’s getting to that time where we switch our operations from the Church of the Nativity to the Buffalo Naval and Military Park for the summer months.
Between June and August, RAWNY puts its club station, W2PE, on the air from USS Little Rock, USS The Sullivans, and USS Croaker. W2PE is on the air for most military holidays and special events during the summer. Our first major event is Museum Ships Weekend; June 1 and 2. If you are a member of RAWNY and would like to come down to the ship to operate, please contact Aaron (N2HTL) at “oldhamradio at gmail dot com.”
Our next major event is, of course, Field Day; June 22-23, 2019. This year, we will NOT be operating from on board USS Little Rock, but at an outdoor campground that is very “family-friendly” and easily accessible to all. Since the location is a private camping facility, it’s location can not be disclosed here. Drop an email to N2HTL if you are interested in joining RAWNY for Field Day.
As always, tune in to the RAWNY Information Net every Monday evening at 7:00pm EST on the BARRA repeater system of 146.910 or 444.000 for more detailed information about everything the club is doing throughout the summer.
Hope to see you over the summer!
