Operators Bob WC3O, Bob K3RMB, Pat NK3P, Steve KB3EYY and Tony KB3HGJ will beQRV from the PEI. They will operate from 80 to 10 meters in CW, SSB and RTTY as VY2/homecall. For the CQ WW DX RTTY contest, the team will operate as VY2/WC3O. Please QSL via K3MJW, Skyview Radio Society.
Look for K3MJW to be operating as K2M for the 13 Colonies special event operation from July 1st to July 6th 2013! K3MJW will be one of three stations in Pennsylvania operating as K2M. Be sure to work us, and the rest of the 13 colony stations to win a very special certificate! Please see www.13colonies.info for much more information. QSL requests for K2M/K3MJW should be directed directly to K3MJW. Look for us on SSB, CW and RTTY on any HF band! We look forward to seeing you on the radio at Skyview Radio Society as Kilo Two Mike!
2010 was the 50th anniversary of Skyview Radio Society! We are a very active club in many aspects of amateur radio. In 2008 we suffered a microburst that did lots of damage to our clubhouse, grounds and antennas. We are back, and in some ways even better than before the big storm. Do a search for Skyview Radio Society on YouTube.
No matter if you are interested in EMCOM, digital, contesting (Radio sport) phone, CW, QRP, home brewing, or just about any other area, we are active. Our clubhouse is both an ARRL Official Relay Station and an Official Emergency Station. We regularly conduct VE session as well as host Tech and upgrade classes.
K3MJW was the bonus station for the PA QSO Party in 2010 and we hit the bands full force! We had a station at our clubhouse in Westmoreland County, but also operations in other surrounding counties as well.
Look for our smiling faces in the large ICOM ad that went out in September 2010 QST along with other smaller ICOM ads! We do love to contest. We recently won 1st place Atlantic Division for the RTTY Round-up! K3MJW hit 1st place for Field Day running as 4E in 2011! Skyview hosts two Field Days. Our clubhouse is operated as K3MJW in contest fashon. We also host an "out in the field" Field Day using our other callsign, WX3SKY.
Our Swap N Shop is the ARRL WPA section convention and is considered by many to be their favorite hamfest of the year!
We had a group of members heading down to the super contest station PJ2T operating as PJ2S in the CQ WW RTTY contest in Septmber of 2010.
We keep a family friendly clubhouse and provide ham radio classes as well as helpful “elmering” (Mentoring) to new hams.
Our meeting schedule is:
1st Tuesday of each month – business meeting
3rd Tuesday of each month – social night
4th Tuesday of each month – Elmer night where we have a speaker or sometimes build projects. Bring your ideas.
We are at the clubhouse every Tuesday evening, so feel free to come and visit.
Our clubhouse has a nice meeting room, full kitchen, clean bathroom and a multi operating position radio room.
Our repeater is on 146.640- 131.8pl and is located at our club grounds.
Please SASE when QSLing direct. You will get a card back either way, but it helps keep our costs down. We also QSL via the buro and LoTW.
Thanks for looking us up and we will CU on the air!
Best 73 from K3MJW

52 years of amateur radio and going strong
