    January 2018 marks 75 years since Mr. Robert L. Drake began making the great Drake Amateur Radio equipment. Two Special Event Stations will be on the air throughout the month in celebration of this piece of Ham History.
    From the 1-A receiver to the TR-7 / R-8 solid state radios Drake has become known around the world as the Cadillac of Ham Radios.
    Look for the stations, W2D and W8D operating randomly (in our free time) on all the HF bands and 6 meters if conditions allow. Watch the DX Cluster sites for frequencies and times of operation. The QRZ pages will be updated in real-time so if you want to see if we're on, simply take a look.

    We will be using Drake equipment exclusively and you'll know it by the now famous audio (for SSB users of course).
