    Usually a "Special Even Station" has a 1x1 callsign - such as W8D to commemorate Drake radios, or K1T for Heathkit radios, etc....

    Do you have a 1x1 call for your special event?

    If you don't, please visit http://www.1x1callsigns.org/ and consider applying for one if you've not already. Probably still enough time to reserve one for your event

    Just a thought - not required but makes it more fun :)
