Post 519 and K6TAL sponsors 'Greatest Generation Appreciation Day'

E-mail Print PDF

At the request of American Legion Post 519 (Palm Springs, Calif.) World War II Legion members, Commander Michael Templeton has organized a “Greatest Generation Appreciation Day” on Sunday, Sept. 2, 2018, from 3 to 7 p.m.

Again K6TAL will be partnering with Post 519 by holding a special event station honoring World War II veterans and their families during the same hours. We will try to get as many World War II vets on the air as possible, talking to other World War II vets in the country.

We invite all TALARC and CALARS members to participate in the event, whether at their posts or at their QTH. They can act as special event stations and/or relays to K6TAL, who will be coordinating incoming traffic.

We will be transmitting on:

HF 7.278+/- MHz and 14.278+/- MHz

Local repeaters:

DRATS 146.940 - 107.2 MHz

WB6RLC 445.640 - 107.2 MHz

We look forward to everyone participating.
