The Nashua Area Radio Club in New Hampshire, USA is celebrating its 35th Anniversary this year. N1FD is our Club’s call sign. Layne, AE1N helped the club put together an on-air Special Event this past weekend to celebrate our Anniversary. Anita, AB1QB and I had the chance to operate as part of the Special Event celebration and we had a great time doing it.
The team of N1FD operators made over 1,500 contacts as part of the Special Event. We operated in SSB, CW and Digital (mostly RTTY) modes on all HF Bands 160m – 10m (except for 60m) during the four day event. We had a great response from the Amateur Community Worldwide.
The N1FD team worked all U.S. States and a total of 67 DXCC Entities. There were some memorable QSOs during our operations. One that stands our for me was a call from Alex, RI1ANC in Antarctica! It was nice to chat with Alex and he told me that the temperature there was -68 °C!
We are working on a picture QSL card for those who worked us during our Special Event. It features pictures from our club’s Field Day activities. Our logs from the event are available on ClubLog and we will be uploading our contacts to LoTW and eQSL as well. You can see if you are in our logs by clicking here. If you worked the N1FD Special Event and would like to receive a QSL card, you can send an SASE (U.S. Contacts) or SAE with return postage (DX Contacts) to our address on QRZ.com.
We’d like to thank everyone who took the time to work our Special Event and to help us celebrate our 35th Anniversary.
