A fun day in the park!

In celebration of the 150th Annual Memorial Day Parade a few members of Brooklyn's Amateur Radio family operated a Special Event Station from famous (in Brooklyn) Cannonball Park. Officially called John Paul Jones park, at the top of Fourth Avenue in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn under the also famous Verrazano Narrows Bridge, is where the oldest Memorial Day Parade in the US ends at the reviewing stand. Our station was right there, operating live as thousands of marchers and dozens of Marching Bands from around the country passed us as they came into the park to assemble for review.

Visit the event page, www.qrz.com/db/K2P to see some photos and videos from that day.

Stations that made contact with K2P may request a special certificate and digital QSL Card via email after submitting confirmed QSO information. We logged on QRZ, LoTW, eQSL and Clublog so all bases were covered.


Coming in January, 2018

R. L. Drake Co. 75th anniversary station W2D operating from  New York and W8D operating from Ohio.

Nothing beats Drake Audio

Robert L. Drake created what has become effectionatly known as the “Cadillacs” of the ham radio field. Many of the Drake receivers, transmitters, and transceivers manufactured in the fifties, sixties, and seventies are still in active use today. Collectors and Drake aficionados will often pay twice the original market price to add such an item to their “Ham Shack”.

Yours Truly is one of those collectors!

The collection consists of:

Three TR-7 transceivers w/ PS-7s with Every 7-line accessory ever made, some multiples!

Two sets, C-line Twins / One set, B-Line Twins

TR-4 / RV-4 \ TR-6 / RV-6 \ C-4

Prototype Station Monitor (modeled on the Heathkit HO-10). One Hi-Patch phone patch device. One Drake monitoring headphones set.

Three L-4Bs / One L-7 \ One 1KW dummy load \ One DC-4 mobile power supply. Two Drake / Astatic mics for the 7's. Drake / One Turner mic for the 4's and many other Drake accessories. 

Please make the contact.


At times, KB2FMH activates a Special Event Station (SES) to celebrate something important or noteworthy. 

Each station is conducted to allow for the most contact exposere while engaging Hams making the contact. We are not like the common "5/9 - 73" stations often heard doing special events but rather more like a Town Hall station, operating from remote locations in the thick of the action, talking about what is happening, making friends and describing the reasons for the station's activity. We, and you, have Fun while logging another contact and learning something new. 

There will be customized QSL certificates / Cards digitally delivered to all confirmed contacts in PDF format for you to print at your lesiure. It takes time to make them, so be patient after the event station closes.

Thanks and "Ham It Up" 

- Gordon West

It Was Great! - August 5th & 6th, 2017.

Special Event Station W2T operated at the Ten Mile River Scout Camp's 90th Anniversary August 5th & 6th. TMR is the oldest continually operating Council owned Boy Scout Camp in the US, founded by some very powerful men including then NYS Governor and future US President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1927. 

To learn more about TMR or find out how to participate in the celebration, follow this link

Stations who made contact with W2T may request a special certificate and will receive a custom QSL Card via mail. We logged on Lotw, eQSL and ClubLog and of course, QRZ. Keep an eye on our QRZ page, www.qrz.com/db/W2T for more info.

We made hundreds of contacts around the globe and really had a great time doing it. 


The cards will be going out in the next week or so and, we do not require an SASE but it would be nice. If you send one, make it a photo size as the cards are larger than the standard QSL card.
