In the event anyone in the club is in the market for a brand new in-th-box Elecraft K3S transceiver, this may interest you.  I am in the process of settling an insurance claim re lightning damage that will require my sending  $$$ to recover depreciation.  I expect to order the new Elecraft K3S 100 watt radio that contesters prefer.I will then sell it at a significantly DISCOUNTED price. The list price I will pay off the internet will be in the neighborhood of $3800. When buying an Elecraft you select items a la carte off the menu — from microphone choice to filters.  I have selected what will appeal to most…but can  adapt to YOUR choices.  Please forward this to anyone you think might be interested.  I also intend to do the same with a brand new Kenwood TS-2000 from HRO.

KE1S QSL avatar

Still waiting for LOTW certificate. I sent an inquiry to the League asking where it might be. I may have to do it over again.

Meanwhile I have received a request for a KE1S QSL Card for a QSO on May 28 at 0708 on 80 meters CW. Any idea who used the call then? We have had the call assigned since 2/2/16.

Next question – What do we do about QSL Cards? I suggest we order 100 or so for the time being. Not sure if we want to use the WA1RR design with a just a change in call to KE1S.

Hello – have TOWER Thoughts.

Anyone familiar with Phillystran Guy Lines? Seems like it would be a lot easier to work with.
