Special Event Station W4G – August 25

The Lake County Amateur Radio Association (LCARA) will be operating special event station W4G August 25 in conjunction with the National Park Service – President Garfield Home in Mentor, OH. It is for the celebration of the 105th Birthday of the National Park Service. The Call of W4G represents “Washington For (4) Garfield” in honor of President James A. Garfield since we will be operating from the parking lot of his Home. Operation will be 10 AM-4 PM (1400-2000Z) on 40 & 20M and the POTA designation is K-0836. Operation will be primarily SSB with a possibility of some FT8. QSOs will be uploaded to LoTW and eQSL. W4G will be used for several days after the event for those who seek/collect 1×1 Calls, but not as a POTA since we only have access to the site for 8/25. Special Event frequencies will be updated on Twitter for those that follow @ARRL.
