Yorktown Special Event This Saturday

This weekend is WAARC’s annual Yorktown Special Event that coincides with the commemoration of the General Cornwallis and the British’s surrender to George Washington and the Colonial Army in 1781, which helped end the American Revolution. This year will be the 239th anniversary of the surrender.

While we are normally set up in the parking lot of the Yorktown Battlefield Visitor Center, due to COVID-19 this facility will not be available to us this year. Randy WB7URZ has worked with the Watermen’s Museum along the York River to get us an alternate operating location. We will be set up on the deck behind the museum.

This year there will also be a fox hunt that coincides with the special event in Yorktown. Randy WB7URZ will be hiding his 70cm fox somewhere in the Yorktown area. Bring your dual-band handheld and join in the fun!

As always, we will be on the air from 10am-4pm, and plan to operate on or around 7.265 MHz +/- QRM. We will be listening for your call!

The Yorktown Special Event is the third of our Historic Triangle Special Event series. If you work all three of our special event stations, you are eligible for a very nice certificate. QSL information, as well as info about the other events can be found on the special events page.
