Hello and welcome!
The Northern Colorado Amateur Radio Club and the WWV ARC will operate a special event radio station to commemorate the 100th anniversary of radio station WWV this fall, operating from September 28 through October 2, 2019.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will hold a recognition ceremony at WWV on October 1, 2019.
That’s 11 weeks from now.
The goal is to make as many U.S. and world-wide contacts during the 120-hour period as possible, using multiple bands and multiple modes on at least 4 simultaneous transmitters. Many operator hours will be required and volunteer operators are encouraged to apply. Many time slots have been filled. We still have open slots on Tuesday October 1 and Wednesday, October 2, if interested.
WW0WWV will also operate a Get On The Air station for facilitating school, museum, and special contacts over the 5 days of operation.
Our efforts have been helped immensely by loans of equipment from Elecraft, Flex Radio, and SteppIR, as well as tremendous support being provided by Rocky Mountain Ham, the Colorado Civil Air Patrol, and local club members.
Visit our Facebook (WWV100 @WWV100) and Twitter (@WWV_100) sites as well.
We welcome volunteers and encourage you to complete a volunteer application and join the project! See the links under the Main Menu to the right.
