The information below is from www.convoyontheair.org/k2epage :
K2E is a combined effort spearheaded by "Bravo Ben" KI6VLC & Tina KK6KSY from the San Francisco Bay Area & Union City, CA.
Since our Convoy On-The-Air Event Invitations to some clubs along the Southern California convoy route went unanswered, Bravo Ben & Tina have stepped up to the plate to bring us an exciting addition to our Ham Radio Convoy Event. They bring with them a "VAST" list of (23) nets that they participate in or are "Net Control".
The most notable on this list include:
They have managed to bring together a Team of Operators from their extensive net list, that plan to converge from around the USA to operate from within the San Francisco Bay & Union City, CA areas.
They have also arranged for the USS Hornet Aircraft Carrier RC to "open" the Radio Room Each Sunday during the Convoy On-The-Air month-long event & will operate from the USS Hornet using the Convoy Special Event Call sign “K2E”.
The father of "Bravo Ben, KI6VLC" is a Survivor of the USS Arizona bombing raid during the Pearl Harbor attack in Dec 1941.
We are very pleased to include Bravo Ben & Tina- with such a strong Military & Ham Radio presence into our "fold".
Looking forward to hearing from you!
