2018 Jamestown Special Event

Saturday May 12th is our first special event of the year. K4RC will be on the air from 10AM-4PM commemorating the 411th anniversary of the establishment of the first permanent English settlement in North America.

We will descend upon Jamestown Island at 8 AM and proceed to setup our station at our usual site along the river edge. Members are encouraged to come setup, operate and tear down the station. Come for any part or all day.

If you are trying to work K4RC from home, we will be operating on 40M in the morning, around 7.265 MHz +/- QRM, and possibly switching to 20M around 14.265 +/- QRM if band conditions permit. Look for K4RC on your favorite spotting cluster to see where we are.

Here are some directions if you are coming to the site: take Parkway to the island. Go around the gate (just before the Glass House) as we have permission to be there. Meet group in the parking lot for the Information Center a little before  8:00 AM.

If you come after they open, come thru the Information Center and tell them you are with the Radio Club. Cross the bridge and walk toward the river. Go left and look for our pop-ups and the group.
