Thank you for all who contacted us during the event! Cards have arrived at W9S QSL Manager Marty Schuette, N9EAT’s QTH and are ready to be sent out. So far as of September 22nd, cards have been sent to N5COT, W5RRR, AA9F, N2PPL, N8HM, WA9FET, WA9LEY, and WB8FSV. If you want a card, please QSL via N9EAT, preferably with a SASE. Any cards sent to the club station rather than to Marty will be answered sometime next week.
A full summary of the event, including grid square maps, will be posted next week after finalizing all of our logs; for now, here are some photos taken at the event.
