Observance of National POW MIA Recognition Day are held across this country on the third Friday in September. This year it will be on September 17. The day was established to honor our prisoners of war and those who are still missing in action.This will be the 13th year the special event station has been activated. Primary operational days will be Sept 11 through Sept 19. We will be operating SSB, CW, FT8. There will be sister stations K4MIA/5 K4MIA/7 and K4MIA/8. Through out the month of Sept., K4MIA will hopefully operate Satellites, EME, Microwave and other less used digital modes (PSK32, Hell Scriber, RTTY, SSTV). Besides operating from our home QTHs we will operate from VA Hospital, Amercian Legion Post, and various parks as part of POTA). We are trying to increase the awareness of our POWs and MIAs. Because of the volume of requests, you MUST SEND SASE to get a returned QSL. Please take time to remember our POW's and MIA's as well as their families. I would like to include KIA's and all veterans (past and present) that have given so much for this country.
