2017 EAA Special Event Station Sign-up

"CQ, CQ, CQ This is W9ZL, Special Event Station for the 2017 EAA Airventure Fly-in calling CQ...."

Yes, it's already that time of year,
the sign-up for this years EAA Special Event Station is now open for
Club operators. I will open it to all ARRL members next week and will
be drawing sign-up to a close at the month of May.
This has to be done so the EAA can finalize their planning into accommodate us
during the event.

We will operate 5 days -- Wednesday through Sunday, during the show
(July 26 thru July 30,2017). This operating event is open to all
license classes. We will operate 2 HF stations, one on 20m, one
on 40m, 6-meter SSB, plus local communications on 2-meters. The
club call, W9ZL, will be used throughout the event.

We are looking for both "AM" and "PM" operators covering each of the 5
days. You can sign up for one shift or more if you so desire. The event
is open to all of the amateur community. If operators sign up for a 4
hour shift, they will be given a daily wristband that will allow them
to go and wonder around the Fly-in.

Starting with the 2016 Kidventure the EAA has instituted a Youth Protection
Program. Be sure to participate in this program so you can operaate
at the 2017 FCARC EAA Special Event Station. A link is provided on the website
sign-up page to guide you to the EAA Youth Protection Program site. If you have already completed the program it is approved for 5-years.
