Subject: W3T puts Nikola Tesla's laboratory Wardenclyffe On The Air!
I saw Acadiana ARA Inc on the <http://arrl.org/> arrl.org web site. Could
you please pass the following along to your members?
Wardenclyffe, Nikola Tesla's last laboratory will be on the air November 5th
as special event station W3T! Wardenclyffe is located in Shoreham, NY on
Long Island. W3T is part of a network of special event stations that are
helping to raise awareness for the effort to purchase the laboratory and
restore it into a science museum. To read more about the effort to restore
Wardencyffe, please check out http://www.teslasciencecenter.org. The other
stations in the network are N3Y which will transmit via satellite and
possibly HF from the New Yorker Hotel, Tesla's last home in Manhattan, and
YU0TESLA which will transmit on 20m as well as other HF bands from the Tesla
Museum in Belgrade. For the latest updates on what frequencies to catch the
stations on and a sneak peek at the QSL cards and QTHs, go to
If you're in the Shoreham area on the 5th, please stop by the station!
Also, be sure to check out the Radio Central Amateur Radio Club. They will
have the Marconi radio shack on the air a few miles away transmitting as a
special event station commemorating the 90th anniversary of the opening of
the RCA transmitting antenna farm in Rocky Point, NY. More details are
available at http://www.rcarc.org/. Without the RCA club W3T would not be
on the air. Their help has been invaluable!
And, this just in, we are proud to announce that one more historic station
will be on the air with us on the 5th of November, the Police Athletic
League Amateur Radio Club of Yonkers, NY, a mere few meters from the site of
the first FM transmission 66 years ago on November 5th of 1935 will be on
the air with same call sign as the historic station: W2XAG.
If you have any questions, or you'd like to help out, please feel free to
contact me at hcarter333 at gmail.com.
