    That was soooo much fun. It's great to be semi-rare DX, especially on the downside of the sunspot cycle.

    Came very close to running KC4AAA at the South Pole. [sigh.....]

    Went to Ireland on vacation in 1985. I got a temp Irish call sign and worked 2M while there. It took me about 6 weeks before working thru the Irish Embassy to gain permission.

    Under my old call, as WA5LNG/VE3, Leamington Provincial Park, at Canada's southern-most spot. Under my current call, K5LAW, I usually keep a rig on 2 meters and 222 MHz downtown. And, under my British call, G0JCZ, London and southeastern England.

    Nowhere exotic, just two special events operations. I was part of a special event some years ago at Cantigny, the estate of the late Col. Robert McCormack, former owner of the Chicgo Tribune who served in WWI in the 1st Division, the Big Red One. Cangigny is in Wheaton, IL, is named after Cantigny, France, where he saw his first action. It is the location of the division's museum. We operated under the call of one of our club members, N9BRO, November Nine Big Red One.

    In the museum I learned that Ft. Devens, MA, where I spent six months learning Morse code to be a Morse code interceptor in the U.S. Army Security Agency, was once the home base for the First Division (it is no longer a military base).

    The other event was last year on Nov. 17th, the NRA's birthday. Four of us had a special event operation set up at Gunsite Academy and operated under K7NRA's call. AFAIK, we'll be doing it again this year and I'll post info about it when we get it set up. The guy who runs Gunsite, K7GST (Kilowatt Seven GunSite Training) graciously let us set up in the campground there.

    Portsmouth Island, NC a "ghost town" located off on the Outer Banks for a week. Ran special event station K4F last year and was active on 20M and 40M PSK31, SSB and 2m APRS (when the yagi was aimed right! hi hi). Was a way to test my emergency comm gear and planning (as we had to bring all our supplies including water). Was what you'd call a "Backyard DXpedition". 73

    I was lucky enough to be an Electronics Technician for GoodYear Airship Ops from 1991-1997 based out of Gardenia, California. I would operate my Handheld (Kenwood 78A) from approx 1,000 ft over Southern Calif. I passed the hamm test in 1994, from that point I would usually broadcast about 3-6 hours a week from the airship as KE6LLZ. Before i knew it, the "LLZ" stood for "Large Landing Zone".

    I heard you on the air back then! I might have even had a QSO, can't recall.

    Anyway, I haven't operated anywhere interesting, but there is a station aboard an old Soviet nuclear sub here in Seattle. I'd like to do some operating from there someday.
