Richard Strand, the original KL7RA, operated the premiere Multi-Operator, Multi-Transmitter contest station in Alaska/Zone 1 for nearly 40 years.  His station was originally in Fairbanks, then in Two Rivers, and finally at its present location on the Kenai Peninsula in Nikiski.  He was a mentor to many contesters, friend to even more, and a storyteller (some even true) par excellence.  The earlier station lives on as the home of Leon Ledlow, N1TX, who hosts the Two Rivers Radio Club KL2R station there.  Rich passed away too young at the age of 68 in November 2015.  We wanted his legacy to live on, and knew that if it didn’t, KL7/Zone 1 was unlikely to have an operation of that scale happen again.  Stephen Bloom, KL7SB, arranged to lease and eventually buy the property and asked Wigi Tozzi, KL0R, who operated with Rich for 30 years, to manage operations.  We plan to participate in most major contests.  Ops will use their own callsigns for Single-Op efforts, and we’ll bring back Rich’s call for our Multi-Op team.

Buzz, NI5DX, is handling the KL7RA QSLing from January 2016 onward.  Tree, N6TR, will continue to answer QSLs for 1992 through the end of 2015.  ALL QSOs will be in the ARRL's LoTW.
