    The North-Central Arkansas Amateur Radio Service will be hosting a very unique special event on August 5. This Saturday. We have been granted access to operate from the decommissioned Titan II complex 373-4 nicknamed "Ghost Site" near Searcy Arkansas.
    Access to this complex has never before been available. This is the location of the first missile complex erected in Arkansas and is also the area where 53 men lost their lives during a tragic fire August 9th 1965. That tragedy resulted in the largest loss of life in the history of the Titan II program. The warhead that was located in this complex was later moved to Damascus Arkansas where it was involved in an explosion on September 19, 1980.
    This special event is very important, as this silo has not been on the air since it was decommissioned. This is the one to get, this Saturday if possible. 12pm-7pm cst 17:00 - 23:00 utc
    Three HF stations - 20m 40m 80m phone and one 2 meter fm 146.500mhz (echolink 7797) Echolink contacts we can QSL but they will not count for dxcc. Please disconnect after contact to clear the node.
