Making adjustments to the voice station coax.

 

Skywarn Recognition Day 2014 was a huge success.  We had so many new hams come and view the operation as well as operate the station.  Doug AAAW wants to thank each and every volunteer that showed up to set up antennas, operate and make this event a huge success. 

 

Thank you to one and all and see you in the pile ups.

 

 

Our list of NWS stations worked.  We also qualified for a certificate.
