Remembering the Edmund Fitzgerald Special Event Station

I got a nice letter in my email inbox this morning from W0JH, who was operating a special event station to commemorate the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald in Lake Superior.


TNX for being part of our recent WØJH “Remembering the Edmund Fitzgerald” Special Event from Split Rock Lighthouse!
Attached is the QSL certificate you requested for the October 31, Nov 1 & 2, 2014 event.
The event, organized and operated by the Stillwater Amateur Radio Association (SARA), was co-sponsored by Radio City, Inc. and the Courage Kenny Handiham Program. Our 20 hours of on-air operation netted us about 650 contacts. From those, we received 260 QSL certificate requests within one week of the event.
Most of the requests received include accurate and necessary QSO contact details (e.g., date, time, frequency, etc.). We’ve seen a few requests where contact times and other info did not match our logs. Since our loggers/operators rarely make mistakes and our logging computers are always correct, our data will be official!  hi hi 🙂
TNX again for your contact with WØJH Special Event Station!
