    Wow, tough crowd here. I don’t care where they do their thing. It will most likely draw questions from onlookers. Great way to broaden the hobby. 2 grids in one to boot. Good luck

    This must be some kind of sick joke, as if Ameritron wasn't enough of a national embarrassment.

    Walmart car parks... HIHIHIHI...
    I wonder will the RSGB / OFCOM consider TESCO / SAINSBURY / LIDL over here for a call sign.

    I would like to activate the cigarette stand outside store #00001! CQ Sam Walton statue, how copy i am sending hard to get over the 11M IMD!

    Nice to have a smile on my face after having the brand new ameritron let the smoke out for the 4th time in 2 weeks. In all sincerity, I wish WPOLOTA all the best.

    Are there other "commercial" names used in OTA events? I mostly hear of BSA or memorial sites, or the NPOA events.

    Seems strange to promote the name of any commercial entity.

    I suggest you read the "rules" of the event to see how ironic this statement is. Spoiler: The entire event is strange - it's supposed to be!

    One ________s on the air is just as good as any other _________s on the air.

    I give them credit for doing something creative and much more interesting than the usual.:)
